Jenna Bush Hager tells Hoda Kotb to take off her bra after wardrobe on ‘Today’

Jenna Bush Hager urged Hoda Kotb to ditch her bra after it kept peeking out during Thursday’s episode of “Today.”

Although Kotb chose a bright red dress to celebrate the Fourth of July, she admitted that it didn’t “work” for her midway through the episode.

After producers stopped the segment to tell her to “fix” the fashion faux pas, Kotb explained that the bra cups were “too big” and the straps were “too small.”

The 59-year-old said she knew from the second she put on the bra and loose-fitting dress there was going to be trouble.

“You know when you say, ‘It’s all hanging. It’s not right.’ But you know what, I just decided I was going to do it,” she explained.

“Have you ever gone to a party and gone, ‘It’s good.’ And then you spend the whole party pulling and shoving and stuffing? It is not good.”

Hager could relate to the struggle, noting that there’s nothing worse than wearing something “with too much cleavage” that makes you feel uncomfortable.

“I don’t want it,” Kotb replied. “I don’t want it, it’s too much.”

After the mother of two, who kept trying to adjust her top to no avail, said she felt like she was “falling off,” Hager suggested she just take off her bra.

“You know what you have to do? Next time you just take off your bra,” she suggested. “Would you ever free your breasts?”

Although Kotb was adamant that she would never go braless, the 42-year-old kept trying.

“Free your breasts, Hoda! It’s time,” she exclaimed. “At this point in your life, when you are almost 60 years old, free your breasts! Let’s free them, because if you took off your bra, then you wouldn’t be in trouble!”

Although Hager made it clear that she didn’t want Kotb to strip “on TV,” she then offered to take it off herself.

“Do you want me to take off your bra for you?” she asked, noting that she could “do it real quick and slide it through.”

However, her offer resulted in a hard “no” from her co-anchor.

While Kotb prefers to keep covered, Hager can ditch her underwear. The journalist sparked controversy last year after she admitted that she prefers to go commando under her clothes.

She revealed earlier this week that she doesn’t mind “walking around naked with [her] children around.”

However, Hager – who is mum to daughters Mila, 11 and Poppy, 8, and son Hal, 4 – became ‘defensive’ and clarified that she wasn’t doing it in a ‘dirty way’.

She explained that not only does she walk around the house without clothes, but that her children sometimes intrude on “the privacy of [her] bathroom” while she is in her birthday suit.
