Re: Why do wear a bra to bed?

A bra? I don't know why someone would wear anything to bed. Why would anyone want clothing bunching up about them? I have silk pajamas I wear before I go to bed and put on when I get up, or if a fire would happen.

Anyone asking that question has to be small busted to not get it.  For comfort of course!!  I'm a size 12 and 40DD and even when thinner - well they just get in the way and are uncomfortable.  Even at 63, I am not sagging much and I think it's because I nearly always wear a bra to bed so they don't hang at night.  I don't wear an underwire to bed but Rhonda Shear racer back bras.  Without an underwire, I would look like they were huge and much lower which isn't a good look for someone larger busted!   I need to buy really good bras that are well fitted so the underwire is not uncomfortable at all.  I always wished I were smaller so I wouldn't have to but you do what works for your own comfort.

 


I wear an I or J cup depending on the bra so I'm not small busted and I don't get it.

Re: Why do wear a bra to bed?

After menopause the size of my breasts seemed to increase astronomically overnight.  About the same time I began sleeping only a few hours a night.  This went on for years.  I began sleeping in a Rhonda Sheer leisure bra and found I slept better.

 

Last winter I underwent a breast reduction. (and tummy tuck) I now sleep like a baby in any position without a bra.  Huge improvement, not to mention how many people ask if I've lost weight. Everything looks so much better.

Re: Why do wear a bra to bed?

Just to add it's not only about being larger chested but how a person sleeps as well. Going through the posts I read that some fuller busted ladies do not feel the need to sleep with a bra and others do. Also, we are all different. In my case, it is a must. I'm a side sleeper and perhaps since I have a 32" back my breasts overwhelm my frame more than others when I sleep. 

 

I also find that sleeping with a bra helps to keep everything in check. My breasts do not sag and I have to give credit to wearing a bra most of the time.

Re: Why do wear a bra to bed?

I am petite am larger chested and frankly my boobs just feel heavy when I sleep and now that I wear a genie bra to bed, I am much more comfortable. My doctors and I have discussed reduction but I am not really in any pain otherwise so I will pass. They also said wearing a bra as much as possible can help with sagging and I have to say I am in my early 40's and have pretty darn perky ones for being so large. Must be doing something right!

I could certainly understand you wearing a bra then if it gave you some relief and helped pain.  I am sure that was no picknick, to be sure!  


It was one of those unexpected side effects that no one told me about before the surgery!  I'm now a 40C, so I think back then, I was probably a 38B or C so not gigantic, but the weight of my bazooms pulling my sternum apart was enough to make me uncomfortable

I'm a 38 C and 65 so the girls are drooping and a little heavy these days. I find the Genie Bra with out the pads is very comfortable to sleep in. I like to lounge in my CH pjs so the Genie bra just makes me look better too.

Re: Why do wear a bra to bed?

I have always worn a bra in bed, I just feel more comfortable wearing one. Even when I had a small bust but especially when I have a big one now.
