One of the most common questions women ask about sleep is whether it is a good idea to sleep in a bra at night or not. When you really stop to examine some of the facts about bra sleep, you will find that there are advantages and possible disadvantages to doing so. In this article, we’ll cover both, but try to focus on the positives of sleeping in a bra, as it may be something you choose to do.
The first thing I would like to say is that there are some myths about wearing a bra at night that should be dispelled right away. One of the most common myths is that wearing a bra while sleeping can increase your risk of breast cancer. This is absolutely untrue. There are no studies or evidence to support that claim and women have been sleeping in a bra for many years without developing any breast cancer problems. There are many other factors that contribute to breast cancer that should be avoided, but wearing a bra at night is not one of them. This is why I would suggest that if you like to wear a bra at night and find it comfortable, go for it.
There are specific benefits of wearing a bra while sleeping that need to be considered as well. If you have large breasts, wearing a bra while you sleep will help prevent premature sagging of the breasts. It is also beneficial for women who have recently had breast surgery. It will help support your breasts and prevent soreness from your recent surgery.
If you are going to wear a bra at night, it is important that you choose one that is comfortable for you. If you tend to wear an underwire bra during the day, it is best if you choose a bra that does not have underwire to sleep at night. While it may seem perfectly okay to do this, some women have trouble with a bra that digs in and creates discomfort while they sleep. It may not wake them up enough to make them fully conscious, but it can interrupt their sleep long enough that they feel tired the next day.
Finally, choose a bra that is not too tight, and you may want to choose one that is a little baggy for sleeping. Lymphatic fluid drains into the breasts at night and wearing a bra that is too tight will interrupt this process. They can also make you uncomfortable, which is certainly something you want to avoid while sleeping. So the bottom line is, if you like to wear a bra at night and it makes you feel comfortable, go for it.
