Is It Bad To Sleep With A Bra On?

Sleeping in a bra really is a matter of the woman’s personal comfort. Some women have tender breasts, so need the bra support and for some who suffer from rashes below their breasts (moist skin-to-skin friction) wearing a bra can be painful. If you do wear it avoid an ill-fitting one and choose a natural fiber, soft cupped bra that will keep moisture away from the skin.

Curejoy Expert Gina Hodge Explains:

Is It Bad To Sleep With A Bra On?

This is one debate that will rage till eternity. While most ladies avoid wearing a bra when going to bed to avoid marks, the “constricted” feeling and even the fear of blocking the lymphatic glands leading to breast cancer, there are the religious nighttime-bra-wearers (like Marilyn Monroe) who strongly believe that it prevents their breasts from sagging. Scientifically both of these assumptions are myths at best.

Lymph nodes in the underarms act as natural filters that drain the breast of lymph fluid, and are the body’s first defense against infection, foreign material, and cancer cells. Studies have not been able to prove that wearing a bra constricts the pathways of the lymph nodes.So get the breast cancer fear out of your mind.

Pregnancy and breastfeeding are the most common causes of breast sagging, and genetics and age determine the extent of sagging. If your breasts size is above C then choosing a soft-cup style, without much hardware or fasteners, should provide some support from sagging. For all others the bra isn’t preventing sagging in any way.

To conclude, sleeping in a bra at night really is just a matter of the woman’s personal comfort. Some women have tender breasts, so need the bra support and for some who suffer from rashes below their breasts (moist skin-to-skin friction) wearing a bra can be painful. If you do wear it avoid an ill fitting one and choose a natural fiber (all-cotton wireless), soft cupped bra that will keep moisture away from the skin.

As a late 50's well endowed lady with not any sag, i personally recommend ladies find proper fitting comfortable bras and wear them day and night, (except intimate time.) Excercise your back and shoulder muscles and wear a good bra. This article sounds as if it were written by a very young woman, perhaps in her 30's. Does she have the answer to the question of sagging breasts? It may or may not help your lymph nodes to be without a bra. But i can attest to wearing a bra day and night has worked very well. It eliminated breast sag when i do go with no bra. Care for and support your ladies.:y
