Wearing Bras Too Much (Ladies)

    Well, like so many others echo, I was taught by my mom not to wear a bra to bed. I wear an underwire bra. I really hate wireless bras. I only like shelf bras in camisoles. I will wear a camisole to bed sometimes with pajamas. But if I lay down and realize I have an underwire bra on, I will get out of bed to take it off.

    My sister told me that once she got pregnant and started having children she felt like she needed a bra all the time, but she wears softer wireless bras to bed. So, do whatever you're comfortble with.

    I'd think if you're in a hot or humid climate, let your skin have some air and don't coop yourself up in a bra when you're already bundled in sheets and blankets. But, it really depends on your comfort level. If your breasts bother you when they're not in a bra, find a comfortable set of bras or camis for night wear. Treat it just like it's part of your pajamas and move on.
  • On topic, I was always advised bras/sports crops to bed are fine, as long as they are not underwire. At my size (14F AUS, no idea what that translates to) I need an underwire during the day for support, but if you wear them 24/7 they can actually compress on your glands and cause things like inflamation or, if you have ever had a milk supply, blocking of the milk ducts and mastitis.

    When I was pregnant I was advised to forego underwires the whole time I was pregnant and nursing for the same reason.

    I also hate wearing underwires to bed because being the size I am, my breasts tend to make the wires dig in under my arm. It's not due to being the wrong size, it's just not designed to work so well sideways

    I haven't read through all the posts, but here's my experience...

    I have very large breasts DD cup. I used to wear a bra all the time, and there was no way I could exercise without one. I stopped wearing a bra all the time about a year ago, when I started to work from home. I only wear them now for business meetings etc where I need them to sit up and not draw attention. As a result my breasts are so much firmer, and have a lot more elasticity. My husband told me the other day that he noticed them getting firmer and more muscular because they weren't as soft to lay on anymore.

    I've also noticed I don't get pain during exercise anymore, and don't even notice that I'm not wearing one anymore when I go to exercise. Before the pain would be to great as well as the wild ride the girls would take in the process.

    It's not for everyone, but in my experience, it's the best thing I have done. For me no bra = perkier boobs even at a natural DD cup!

    Very cool, thanks for sharing.

    Sometimes if I'm really tired I fall asleep with my bra on (that`s when you know it`s a comfy fit) and I forget to brush my teeth :ohwell: .

    As for wearing a bra... I really don't think it matters either way. It is personal preference, wear one when you want and don't wear one when you want, and go topless whenever you can and do naked dancing around the home.

    Do what's comfortable. I like support all the time, so I wear mine all the time.

    Take em off and leave just the way you were born. I would imagine having a belt around 24 hrs is uncomfortable.

    Actually. NOT wearing one is often more uncomfortable (to me, anyway).

    Especially if it's summer and you're sweating. Boobs sweat, too. Er. What did I come here to say?

    Oh yeah. I wear one to bed sometimes. I have since I developed boobs. My boobs aren't sagging to my knees like some would want you to believe yet. Nor are they horribly deformed or itchy or whatever. Just do whatever's comfortable for you.
  • In all seriousness, my wife has a sleep bra thing she just bought. Seems to like it.

    I think whatever study said that wearing a bra promotes sagging needs to do any sort of research on regions that don't have the social rule for women to wear bras (mostly because they're all topless and near-naked anyways). They're boobs are waaaaaay saggier than boobs of women in regions that wear bras.

    Dang, I meant to quote some guy on the first page that talked about a study saying wearing bras all the same makes boobs saggy because they don't know how to supports themselves anymore or something, but I pressed the wrong button,

    Oh so you are a tranny. My bad dear.

    'Tranny' is a derogatory term so I suggest you stop using it.

    I'm a 36 DD so not wearing one is less of an option. I wear a sports bra to bed and a normal VS during the day, and both when exercising-- but I recently found out about a website for busty women so I will likely have 3 bras to wear throughout the day. As for the research... Idk... I wear them so I stay perky it seems to work.

    I love the "don't know how to support themselves anymore" argument. My breasts are strong and independent, with or without a bra, thank you very much.

    I remember feeling that way when I was young too, time is a harsh mistress.
