Ptosis, the condition of sagging breasts can be avoided by wearing a flexible bra while sleeping. Although there is no proof that bras help prevent or cause ptosis, it is largely believed to do the former. This is because a bra prevents the stretching of skin surrounding the breasts that is caused by gravity, which eventually causes ptosis.
Curejoy Expert Gina Hodge Explains:
Prevent Breasts From Sagging
Ptosis of the breast is the medical term for drooping or sagging female breasts. There may be conflicting views regarding the association of wearing a bra while sleeping and the prevention of sagging breasts, while some experts advocate sleeping bra-free at night while others strongly believe that wearing a bra at night does prevent breasts sagging. However, there is very little scientific data supporting each group.
Having said that it is my belief, that wearing bra at all times, especially for an individual who is more prone to breast sagging would certainly reduce the incidence of ptosis. The support provided by a bra would work against the effect of gravity, which would otherwise cause the stretching of the supporting skin and ligaments of the breasts, hence making it droop due to the downward gravitational pull.
But it is important to know that certain styles of bra would not be ideal to slumber in, like wearing an under wired bra with push-up. Thus choosing an ideal bra that is soft and comfortable is very important if you want to wear it in bed.

Things You Can Do To Prevent Breasts From Sagging
- Wearing a well supportive bra: It is very important to wear a good supportive bra every day, especially during breast feeding.
- Establish a good exercise program: A good exercise program that includes weights to strengthen the muscles underlying the breast tissue might be very helpful.
- Maintain a good posture: Standing up properly, with your shoulders back and maintaining a good body posture goes a long way for preventing sagging breasts.
- Maintain a healthy body weight: Try to maintain your body weight with the help of good eating habits, exercise and Yoga. The main three Yoga asana’s which help in breast lifting are Sarvangasana, Sirshasana and Viparita karani.
- Keep your breasts smooth and supple: Exfoliate, use lotion and massage the breasts.
Whether it does or not, I'll continue to wear my wirefree softcup bra because it's how I feel comfortable.
Você só lê o q interessa a vc p dizer q está certa. Não o q vc usa com arame e sim um confortável e outra, bem no inicio ela diz q não tem estudo q confirma o usar e não usar. Porém o de arame e suporte faz mal!! Pq? Por que aperta o corpo e afeta o sistema linfático, que é o sistema de purificação do organismo das toxinas. ;)
Breasts reacting to age and gravity - a nonissue for me - like graying hair and certainly not the worst thing to happen to a woman.

Don't protest against me.. I'm just sharing what I know by my own personal experince.... Love yourself enough to discover your own self. We all in this together .☝🏻❤️🙏🏻 Ps. High heel & bras. Think about that ladies.
I wore a bra for years to bed when I was in my teens and I do not have sagging breast and at that time I just wore it for comfort
Any elastic band or tightish fabric is putting pressure on the nodes. You just may not have any risk factors for it to be a problem, but one never knows until there is a problem.
It doesn't close up your heart chakra!! Read up about the Chakra's. Heart chakra is called Anahata. A blocked heart chakra may be manifested by a tragic event, repressed emotions, holding a grudge. Not by wearing a bra.
I just read another article saying that we shouldn't be wearing bras as much to prevent sagging....ugh I'm tired of new research I'm just going to stick to listening to my own body and do what makes me feel healthy and good...
Bra actually harming to us girl!! Natural Gravity help you tight up your breast.. Free the boobies!!!! On the spiritual side of it, it actually closed up your heart Charka. Ladies do your research.☮🌎
I don't wear them during the day, so I can't imagine wearing one to bed. How uncomfortable, I don't care what style!!
It is caused by menopause and wearing a bra to bed won't make one bit of difference. It is what it is. The only thing that could change it is a breast implant
A doctor told me to always wear a bed/sleeping bra to sleep in. He said just designate one of my bra(s) that does not have an underwire and doesn't fit too tight on the shoulders. There's no pressure on the lymph nodes. I'm 66 y/o with no sagging problem
