While having girl talk it seems as though a lot of mother's give the advice of wearing a bra to bed when sleeping in order to prevent saggy breast.
How true is this advice, let me hear your results? LOL!
Thank you ladies for taking the time post! My question is if we all are not wearing our bra to bed how are we going to know if the myth works!!!!!!!! LOL
Ugh...now way!! I take that thing off the moment I walk through the door. I NEVER wear a bra at home. (Unless someone is over.) I don't wear a bra the majority of time, have big boobs, have been pregnant...and no sagging. I think it's genetic, mostly.
The first thing I do when I get off work is lose that brazierre and let the girls be free.
I'm almost 55, nursed 2 kids, and still have perky boobs.
NO BRA in bed except for when it's a prop for spice.
No way do I wear a bra to bed! That is so insanely uncomfortabe.
Wearing a bra at night does nothing to help prevent sagging breasts at all. It's all genetics.
Your breasts are going to sag or not because of pregnancy. Breastfeeding doesn't make them sag, it's the pregnancy. The sagging is just delayed because they have milk in them.
And like Lucky said, getting those muscles good and strong will help keep them perkier ;)
Oh hell no!
And yes, I breastfed three kids an average 18 months each.
My "girls" still look fabulous (one of my favorite features actually) but that's probably because I wasn't that big to begin with. I was a small B and now I'm almost a C. There's less to sag, I guess :)
Only when I was breastfeeding the first time. I don't think it matters if you wear one to bed or not, gravity wins each time. They aren't "hanging" when your lying down :)
Besides, I like to be comfortable when I go to sleep.
I never could.
It's just too uncomfortable.
I have a big chested friend (she wears something like a G cup since high school and she's never had a boob job) and she says it's more comfortable for her to have the support - she wears a leisure bra at night.
Yes, I do. I wear my old nursing bras and sports bras to bed (or a very tight fitting tank top). Not b/c I worry about them sagging, but b/c I hate rolling over and being woken up b/c I am squishing one in my armpit! They are seriously all over the place unless I keep them contained.
Ugh, no...it's off as soon as I get home and I am not planning on seeing anyone or going out anywhere else. But I am pretty small-chested and really don't need the support so much. It's more just about keeping my nipples from being visible.
Never my normal daytime bras. That would be uncomfortable.
But I do have those very soft (no wore) comfort type bras (look like Genie bras--the kind wittle bitties CAN actually use as a "bra"!) that I do wear usually to sleep at night. It helps things---uh---stay put!
I'm a DDD and not too saggy at 48! I think there's something to it. ;)
Not a chance in hell of me wearing a bra to bed. Ever. Under any circumstances.
I used to whip it off the second I walked in the door after work, but after breastfeeding 2 kids, I now wear it usually until I go to bed, but never, ever to sleep in. I take it off when I'm napping on the weekends, even!
No way, not even while pregnant. I guess if you have huge boobs and just used one of those bras that is like a sports bra then I can understand but like a Victoria's secret? No way! I use a bra to give me a nice shape, I don't have a large chest. And nursing does not change your breasts, pregnancy does.
I hate wearing a bra, so as soon as I get home I take mine off. They are going to fall one day, now that I'm almost 40, I've accepted it. I'd rather be comfortable, I'm not having surgery.
My 17 year old daughter will only take hers off in the shower, doesn't get that from me. She is much larger than I, but she just likes the feeling. I want freedom.
I have heard that, and I had one co-worker who only slept on her back, with pillows on both sides of her and bra on, only used silk sheets (because that causes less wrinkles on skin she claimed), she was a health nut in food, but a smoker and loved to sun bath, go figure?
The only time I ever slept in one was when I was nursing and that was so I did not leak all over everything. But now heck no I would keep it off all day if I could get away with it but they are way too big to do that with!!
Yes I wear an underwire bra to bed most nights. Sometimes a tank with a shelf bra. I have done this since i was 17 (now 36) when I couldn't stand the way my new size D's felt. I have only met one other person who does this. The results for me? I'm going to say fabulous. I'm a DD have nursed two babies and had multiple pregnancies. My figure is not perfect, but for their size, the ladies are staying up good. I still wear string bikinis, and can with just a bit of support look like there is no sag. I am often asked if I had a boob job (which i have not).
I have always worn a bra to bed - basically I take it off to shower. I'm large chested (32F - used ot be much larger) and it is uncomfortable to have them all over the place.
My breasts are disgustingly saggy. Well, maybe saggy isn't the right word. They are still full and non saggy on the bottom, but loss all mass on top from breastfeeding (I claim BF, because they were fine after my first two pregnancies in which I didn't BF - the last two, where I did BF did them in), so there's a lot of loose skin there.
I used to on and off but now that I had a breast reduction 2 months ago I don't have too anymore :) I didn't care if they sagged I cared more about breathing. LOL. I hated the underwire embedded in my skin the next morning too. Those days are long gone :)
There was a time when I didn't but after having surgery on one boob for cancer they are a bit lopsided and it's easier to wear a bra to even them out. If you do buy the right size bra you don't have it digging in or constricting you so you can't breathe.
My daughter wears one to bed because she is endowed and if she doesn't she finds them around her neck.
Please all of you who do take off the bra please put it back on when you do go to the store. There is nothing worse than someone who has taken off that bra flopping around or them hanging down around their waist.
I didn't used to, but throughout nursing and now even afterwards, I most often do, just because I find it more comfortable (and quicker to dress in the A.m. I usually where a sports bra or tanktop bra. But I don't think it will really help with the gravity issue...
only sometimes and that's because I'm too lazy to take it off.....LOL
Seriously I've never heard that....Um to prevent the sag...I would think keep a healthy weight and strenghten your pectoral muscles....Yep good ol' excercise to keep 'em a bit perky. Aside from that how do we combat age? LOL
Only when I'm working out in the morning. OTW I take a shower first thing.
As a FF, though, I wear an underwire swimsuit top to bed. Started last year. TOO many times of needing to leap out of bed and head to the ER with my son in our PJs, and then living in the hospital for a few months. He's a lot better now, but it's so much more COMFY to keep the girls in line at night!
Sagging? Please refer to the FF (ddd 1/2d). I'd be kicking them when I walked :p
I wear a DDD with under-wire.
I would never be able to sleep with all that on.
The first thing I do when I come home, before I even take off my shoes is get my bra off.
I HATE wearing one!
I would give just about anything to have little bitty boobs that did not need a bra.
I would never wear one if I didn't have to, they are too big and move too much without one.
