  • Sleeping with/without a bra

    I'm not sure if this is the right place to post this, but I've been thinking about this recently.

    When I was in my early teens, I was told by my 'step-mum' that she sleeps with a bra on so her breasts don't 'sag' when she gets older. Yet I have been told by my mum, and I think I've read in places that it's bad to wear a bra in bed because it can prevent your breasts from growing.

    I used to sleep with a bra every now and then because I didn't want them to sag, but for the past few months I've been sleeping without one as I want them to grow also, plus sometimes it can be uncomfortable. I think my mum has a 'special sleep bra' or something like that that she can wear in bed.

    I just wanted some opinions or tips. Is it best to sleep with or without a bra? I'm only 18 so I guess my breasts are still growing (not 100% when they stop growing) and I'm not exactly happy with the size at the moment, but I also don't want them to 'sag' when I'm older.

  • I sleep without one. I find it more comfortable to sleep that way and I have read a study years past that women who wear bra on their sleep have a higher risk for breast cancers. So, it's better to be safe than sorry.

    Nope, not wearing a bra when you sleep won't make it sag. I haven't read anything to reaffirm that.

    • Your mom's idea is quite true. There's nothing wrong of wearing bra when sleeping provided it is not tight or no under wire. I wear some camisole-style pajama tops with a built in bra. On the issue of feeling comfortable, it's not a good idea (day or night) to wear bras that are very tight or don't fit properly.

      • Go bra-less man. You're far more comfortable and I am not aware that your breast will sag. I think it depends on the breast you have. I have a small bust so am pert and haven't slept in a bra in 30+ years. However, a bigger bust is more likely to droop and sag because of the weight. It's about accepting what you have. ;-)

        • Well my wife Donna will only wear a bra at work so at home that thing is off and put away. She likes to let her puppies breath as long she can. Plus myself i enjoy the view as well lol. So the answer would be no she sleeps nude so never a bra.
          When out driving always turn left. Then, should you become lost, you can find your way home by reversing the procedure and always turning right.

          • I have pretty large breasts (36D) and I find if I try to sleep without a bra it's uncomfortable when I lay on my side. My breasts sag and tug my skin. I sleep with a soft non-underwire bra which provides just enough support.

            • Most people sleep without a bra cuz its more comfy. If you have bigger boobs it might be more comfortable with a bra. I have no idea why people would freeze their bra unless they get hot. Sport bras are the best and more comfortable if your gonna sleep in a bra.

              • I usually sleep without one, it's most comfortable. Sometimes though, I sleep with a lace or silk bralette because they're comfy and look good.

                • Braless!! You have those ladies cupped up all day! Let em loose. Let em breathe! Its far more comfy! A loose cami bra could be okay. But nothing constricting. I do not believe that your ladies will start to sag if you don't!!

                  • Sleeping without bra is more comfortable for a women, you will feel free without it and freely sleep without having stress of bra. You can also try sports which are more comfortable at sleeping time.

                    • i am a man with large breast and i have slept in a bra for years for comfort

                      • Your breasts will become saggy if you walk without a bra the whole day, not if you sleep without it. It has nothing pulling it down when you sleep

                        • It's this discomfort that has alarmed many into thinking there are potential health risks attributed to wearing a bra at night. Becker, who was adamant about the importance of fit, says that women "should never sleep in a bra with a wire, it should be a soft-cup bra. Sleeping in a bra with a wire can give you cysts or irritate your breasts."

                          • You should just go with what's comfortable. Don't focus too much on how you may or may not look, it's all nonsense! Wear what makes you feel best
