Should I stop wearing my bottom retainer? Watch

Basically, I was happier with my teeth before my braces as my bottom teeth were fine and now there’s a gap between the two front ones and I hate it. I basically hate my smile and plan on getting braces/invisalign when I’m older but should I stop wearing my retainer now or do you think the one year of movement will speed up the process in the future? I got my braces off 6 months early in May 2017 as I had an allergic reaction to the metal so really they did nothing to my teeth as my cross/over bite hasn’t been corrected at all. I have worn my retainer everyday since (2 and a half years) but am really unhappy with my smile.

Well, I stopped wearing both my retainers after like six months and my teeth haven't fallen out yet. That's all I'm saying.

I had my braces on for a year only, and my teeth move so easily. They move back to their original position in a week of me not wearing retainers

If you don't wear the bottom one, you won't be able to bite properly because your teeth won't meet eye they should
I'd say stop wearing both?
