There are those who adore it and those who find it uncomfortable. But after all, should we sleep in a bra or not? It is time to find the answer to this question.
Lace, cotton or lycra: there is no shortage of options in stores when it comes to bras. There are models for all tastes and of course all occasions and all outfits. However, it is probably the garment that generates the most discord and even some doubts. Now, whether you love it or hate it, I'm sure at some point you've wondered whether or not you should sleep in a bra.
The truth is, there are a lot of questions, myths, and opinions that have cropped up around bras over the years. Although it is a part of everyday life for virtually every woman, it continues to be associated with certain dangers and inconveniences.
For this reason, it is important that certain myths be clarified. From the possibility of developing cancer to the possibility of sagging breasts, find out now whether or not you can wear your bra while you sleep and if this choice brings you benefits.
Sleeping in a bra: Yes or no?
Being the mouthpiece of mothers, grandparents, friends or a doctor, there should be few women who have never heard anyone say that sleeping in a bra is extremely harmful to the chest and even to health. But after all, is this information true or not? Well, the reality is that there is no definitive and correct answer to this question.
Although some experts recommend that you take the bra off at the end of the day, others claim that this obligation does not exist and that it all depends on your preference. The answer varies from person to person as all women have different bodies and as such their comfort needs are also different.
After all, wearing a bra while sleeping has no proven risk to your health despite the many myths about it.
However, it is important that you know how to make the right choices. This means that, at least at night, you should opt for a frameless model, because the rings can end up hurting your chest from the movements you make while you sleep.
That said, you should choose models without rims or more sporty to guarantee your comfort, well-being and relaxation at night. It's important that no part of your body is restricted from moving during sleep (and the chest is no exception).
Secondly, the ideal is to look for models made in the most natural and breathable materials possible. In this way, it not only guarantees your comfort but also protects your skin from major problems such as allergies.
It may seem strange to you, but despite the discord, there are people who feel more comfortable sleeping with more chest support. Generally, women with larger breasts and future mothers can even suffer from certain pains, so they end up preferring the use of this intimate piece.
3 myths you need to forget
1. No risk of sagging
You've almost certainly heard the theory that wearing a bra at night causes the breasts to start "sagging" sooner. However, it is important that you understand that there is no evidence that too frequent or too infrequent use (day or night) is the cause of the phenomenon. It has just been proven that factors such as pregnancy, breastfeeding and, of course, age go hand in hand with seriousness when it comes to the breast.
2. Sleeping in a bra does not make breasts firmer
Of course, that means that sleeping in a bra doesn't firm the breasts either (another myth). Sleeping with this garment under your pajamas does not contribute either positively or negatively to the firmness of your breasts.
3. No breast cancer risk
Finally, as mentioned earlier: bra use during sleep does not increase the risk of breast cancer. There is no scientific evidence to support this theory.
