Sleep Braless or With Bra?

I'm curious, do you sleep in a bra or no bra? I'm a 34/36D and I don't know whether I should sleep in my bra or not. I always do because I fear gravity which is already not my friend, but sometimes I wake up and my breasts will be sore due to me wearing my bra and the fact that I sleep on my face/chest rather than on my side or back. How do you sleep and should I sleep with a bra on? Will not sleeping with a bra cause sagging?

  • hey, I read up on articles about breast health all the time, and your boobs will not sag even if you don't wear a bra , unless you are obese it might be a different story... what I know is , it is unhealthy to sleep with a bra on... because of minimizing circulation and oxygen to your breast tissues... unless ofcurse it is like a loose training bra that you prefer to sleep in for support. I don't reccomend sleeping with a push-up wired bra, also if it's like a size / cup smaller than your chest. So if you're sore, good indicator that it's affecting your health, just stop wearing the bra! you're young and your boobs will not sag! I know that feeling when you;re to lazy to take off my bra after a long day, but I never sleep like that all the time.

    I sleep with just a loose t-shirt and pj's.. but don't listen to the "sleep naked" comment, you're still under 18... but it can be kinda fun to do it, only if you're sure you won't get caught and you feel 100% comfortable.. I do that sometimes .. XD LOL totally a personal preference. wish you luck! :D

  • I'm a 32 HH, and I never sleep with a bra on, you shouldn't any way, just like you, your puppies need to breathe, and well gravity will effect most of us in that area eventually, especially if you breast feed. You've got reasonable sized boobs, which means the more weight, the more gravity will unfortunately be your enemy..sorry but its the case,

    you might see girls who have great sit on the chest boobs (who are big, cause obviously small boobs that are pert can too) , but usually, they are either FAKE, or the girl has broad shoulders. Me and my sisters are quite gifted in that area, but two of them have broad shoulders, and the rest of us have small shoulders, and the other two always look more out their, then down their..lol and yet they aren't bigger then me and yet the look it.

    But as to your initial question if you can learn not to, then don't.

  • I wear a 32F and I sleep with NO BRA. It is wayyy more comfy with no bra (seriously, I buy EXPENSIVE, COMFY bras and the underwire STILL pokes and chafes after a while) and plus, you do realize that bras have a limited lifetime? The less I wear them, the longer they'll last, and since those babies are $70-80 each, I'm gonna do my best to keep them in good shape.

    Your boobs will not stay perfect forever, sweetheart! I'm 23 and my boobs aren't perfect, but I'd rather live in comfort and be active (I'm a runner) and have a man love my athletic physique and bare breasts against his chest while we sleep than compromise my life to stave off gravity for anther year.

    If all else fails, getting a boob lift is always an option :P

    • thats HOT! ;)

  • Some people believe that wearing a bra too much will cause cancer when you're older, although this is a very controversial opinion that is not yet accepted by medical professionals.

    But if there is any truth to it, I'd take the sagging over cancer any day.

    You might try sleeping on your back. It's much more comfortable for me, and I'm not even a woman with your large breasts.

  • My balls need air every once in awhile so I'm assuming your t*ts need air too so let those bad boys breathe!

  • No Bra- 38D.

    It hurts my breasts/ribs if I wear a bra at night. I like to give my skin time to breath. Sometimes at the weekends when I'm at home I don't wear a bra either, it's like having days without make up on I guess.

  • You can wear a really soft bra with no underwire that won't hurt and will prevent sagging. I personally don't sleep with one and mine sag lol

    • haha well if it works for you haha

  • I prefer to sleep without one, honestly. It's just a lot more comfortable.

  • I sleep naked - sleeping with bra on or with anything else is just too uncomfortable! Sagging will happen regardless - whether you like it or not! Does not matter if you have it on or not!

    • I sleep halfway naked, it's the bra which will determine if I sleep completely naked or not heehee

    • lol...I got it...your funny...haha

  • I wear a 40DD. I sleep without a bra. My boobs need to breath at night! They get squished in my bra all day so I need I just wear a cami so they can relax lol. I do t think sleeping with a bra will help with sagging if anything it will cause you more problems.

  • I'm a 34C , I don't sleep with a bra on unless I'm sleeping over at someone elses's house .

  • You shouldn't sleep with a bra on..I read somewhere it increases your risk of getting breast cancer because your boobs are getting crushed by the bra but if you feel more comfortable that way then that's up to you

  • i sleep without a bra most of the time, even at my friends house ha ha but somedays I just forget its on because I'm only 34b but mostly I sleep without it

  • braless. I feel so free with a bra off, without that stupid tight band around my chest all day. its nice to not feel it. freeing I guess. I do wake up at times and am sore because I slept on my chest or something.

  • I don't sleep with a bra, I'm a 34A. However there's no point in sleeping in a bra, it will just make your boobs sore and the girls need a break to breathe! Also, large breasts will sag regardless if you sleep in a bra or not. That's just how it is, at the point they start to sag, all you can do is get a breast lift but nothing you do will stop them from sagging.

  • Im only a 34C but I always sleep naked. I don't notice my t*ts moving too much when I sleep and they haven't started to sag yet.

  • no dt worry about it! sagging breast come with old age and not when you sleep without a bra!

    im a 36D too and I never slept with a bra!

    to prevent sagging you just have to do those chest exercices in the morning :P

    oh and one last thing.. since my breast hurts during my period I usually wear a sports bra that's a bit loose! :) its comfy and it doesn't have the metal bars that hurt so much! :)

    hope it helps xx

    • hahah metal bars= underwire by the way :P I forgot the name xD

    • I know what you mean hun! I completely think the sports bra would help because me waking up sore plus them being sore from my period does not help with inconvenience

    • lol consequences of having big boobs :p sports bra it is xD haha

  • I wear a bra every night to sleep. Usually just a soft cup one or a sports bra/crop top link (kinda thing)

    I've gotten used to it and my boobs are pretty damn firm as a result (34DD, so I feel your pain). I like to think of sleeping in a bra as giving gravity the finger.

    • ;) hahahaha I like it (aswell as 34DD... very nice ;) hahahaha)

    • Perve, lol

    • Oi... how dare you. I'm appreciating your fantastic cones and you call me a perve?!?!?!?! ;) !?!?!?!?!

  • Are you crazy, girl? No bra! Let the girls out at night. And no panties either, you'll get yeast infections. Your ta-tas will not sag any more by not wearing a bra to bed. That's just crazy talk! lol.

  • i like to sleep without one, but sometimes if I'm having someone sleepover I might wear a really comfy one just so I don't get crazy pointy nipples when I get up in the morning, ahhaha

  • I'm 34D but I sleep braless :) when lying down the gravity doesn't attack me and weigh me down that much :P

  • I wear the same size bra as you and i sleep braless everynight! I use to sleep in a sports bra but the straps were always cutting into me. Sleeping braless is so much better and plus there trapped in a bra all day they need to breath every once in a while!:P

  • Your breasts will sag if you're not wearing a bra while walking/standing/sitting...but when you're lying down gravity really can't do anything to your breasts...use a little common sense.

    Sleep with your bra off.

    Btw, I'm 34D...

    • Ok f***tard, clearly I'm not the only one with this concern

    • That was useless name calling... Why did you ask this question if you don't want to hear the answer? My father is a doctor so I know what I'm talking about. But do what you wish.

    • Your father is a doctor, not you. And doctors do not have the answer to my concern as it's basically subjective
