do you sleep in your earrings?

I have always slept in my earrings. Now, after 30 years, my hole has stretched. I can't wear lever backs unless they are so super super light!
Its hard to find dangle earrings that start with a post.

I don't sleep in earrings. I have lost some backings/earrings, bent the posts and just found it better to take them off to sleep.
Earrings go on in the mornings after I am dressed so I don't caught them on the bath towel or clothing. They seem to last alot longer now.

No---but my holes have stretched also. I think it was from all the heavy earrings I use to wear.

No, I never sleep in earrings. I've always found that to be very uncomfortable. The earrings jab me so I got in the habit of removing them at night. I've had pierced ears for more than 40 years and my holes are not stretched but I always have worn lightweight earrings. I never could stand the sensation of heavy earrings swinging in my ears.

Yes, I sleep in my earrings and always wear lightweight earrings. I have had earrings that poked me, and I abandoned those for sleep and just wear them on occasion. I have not been able to wear anything but gold for a few years now (since my hormones changed) and I could not afford to wear heavy gold, so sleeping in my earrings, means lightweight. ;-) I have never lost an earring in bed although my DILs say that is why they do not wear them, they lose them in bed. Gosh, I wonder what they are doign to lose their earrings. :-)

My ears are pierced twice. I wear diamond studs every day in the upper piercings, and leave those in when I sleep unless they're soaking in jewelry cleaner. They have threaded posts with scr#w-on backs, so they are very secure. I've slept in these earrings for almost 30 years and the holes haven't stretched--in fact they're difficult to get through the holes if I don't wear them for a couple of days.
I always remove whatever earrings are in the lower holes, usually hoops.

Years ago, I did. Haven't done that in probably over 10 years.
My holes are tiny dots, almost undetectable. But, I think that's do to the fact that I really never wore/wear heavy earrings no matter if I was sleeping or awake!

Studs only, I can't stand to sleep in hoops.

No, never.
I would not feel comfortable.

I wear moissanite studs more than any other earrings, since my son and I go to the gym so often. I do sleep in them, and don't have a problem.

No, but I should -- the holes in my ears are closing up. When I wear an earring with a larger post I have trouble and feel like I'm making a new whole in my ear!

I leave my moissanite studs in my second holes but always take my earrings out of the front holes. I change those everyday anyway. I don't wear studs in my first holes as they poke when I'm on the phone. I love love love leverbacks. If I find earrings I like but they are studs, I take them to my local independent jeweler who puts them on leverbacks for me at what I think is a steal of a price.

Not intentionally. I have woken up countless times to find my diamond rolex off and in the bed somewhere. Diamond earrings,too. As a matter of fact this happened 2 days ago. I also am suppose to wear this shoulder splint while I sleep....I tell my PT what's the point since I wake up out of it every morning.....she calls me Houdini!!!

not anymore!!
i used to sleep in my diamond studs. well my baby - who is 12 now - when he was younger loved to take mommy's hair down and brush it. so one night he did this as i was dozing off and he decided he was going to take a better look at my studs because they were sooo pretty he said. well he dropped it down my ear!!!:O i had no idea because he was so afraid to tell me so he just handed me my brush and said he was done and going to bed. it was in a hurry but i didn't think anything of it at the time. well the next day i had the worst headache i have ever had in my life! about noon i could not live with it anymore and called my doctor who told me to come in and when i did she was checking me over and looked down my ear and suddenly she said "OMG" - i thought i had a tumor!!!! LOL she said "you won't believe it!" and got the long tweezer like forceps and pulled out my stud! we laughed about it but i no longer sleep in them anymore even though he feels he is too old to be playing in mommy's hair. that is a pain i never want to experience again!!;-)

I have a 2nd piercing and one of the holes is really hard to get an earring through--the girl who did the piercing "shot" me at an awkward angle. So I usually have a pair of tiny little fake-diamond studs in just to keep the hole open and accessible.
Othewise, I take all my jewelry off before I go to bed. If I didn't, I'd feel shackled.

I sleep in them when I wear gold ball studs or pearl studs. I guess the posts aren't long because they don't bother me. But the lever backs I take off because I'm afraid of breaking them.

I only have one piercing each ear but one of mine is very crooked, and the reason I like to always wear earrings, is that one wants to close up. Mine incidentally were done by a plastic surgeon many, many years ago, who was doing breast reconstructive therapy subsequent to removal of a large abscess with a cavity (the breast turned out fine, but the piercing in right ear is crooked).

I have always slept with my earrings in. My Dr. did my piercings while I was having a mole removed. I mentioned to him I was going to have this done, and he said let me do it. They turned out perfectly centered with a nearly invisible hole.
That is the main reason I'm never without earrings.
I had been in the hospital for about a week, they of course required my jewelry be put in their safe. Long story short, the holes were practically closed.

No, because it feels like the posts are jabbing me in the head. I wear a different pair every day anyway.

Sometimes yes....sometimes no. I can't leave any jewelry on my night stand or my little girly cat will bat them around. She loves jewelry as much as me. :-D So if I find my earrings still on I have to leave them on.

Not in the past 10/15 yrs. At that time I wore the same jewelry most of the time, more studs and smaller hoops.
I was wearing all gold jewelry then. :)

I use to years ago but no longer. Usually all jewelry comes off once I get home unless I am going out.

Nope. Never got my ears pierced.
I can't wear even clip-ons. They just pinch a nerve that runs EXACTLY below that spot of my earlobe.
I feel bad for folks who have stetched holes in their ears. :_|
