@hotpinkbride:  I sleep in a bra about 60% of the time. I have DD natural boobs and my aunt told me years ago this practice will keep them perky. I’m 33 now and they are still cute and perky.

I’ve never heard of this…it sounds like she was just trying to make a sale. I’m 38 weeks pregnant and never wear a bra to sleep. I don’t have any sagging or stretch marks so far.

I know that once you start breast feeding you need to wear a bra to sleep but that’s just because your boobs will be leaking.

I am usually a D and recently with pregnancy they have become something much larger. While I find underwires incredibly uncomfortable to sleep in I usually sleep in a looser fitting sports bra just so they aren’t so sore in the morning. I don’t know if you need to buy a special bra just for sleeping and I can’t say they prevent streatch marks, but I have found it to be much more comfortable

P.S. I would probably cry if I couldn’t take my bra off at the end of the day. It’s one of the best feelings ever lol.

Never heard of this, and I don’t think I could ever find a bra comfortable enough to sleep in lol. I think it’s a lot more comfortable without one of those pesky things.

Have started sleeping in crop tops because it is more comfortable but have no idea about preserving perkiness! Good luck- do what makes you sleep better! 🙂

I wear a “sleeping bra” (i.e. thin, wire-free bra) now that I’m pregnant. I was a D-cup pre-pregnancy, and am now approaching a DDD. I wear one to prevent soreness, and hopefully to prevent sagging and stretch marks, though only time will tell!

i’ve slept in a sports bra ever since i had boobs (i’m a 34DD/36D). i can’t stand the feel of t-shirts on them (nipple chafing anyone?). haha. i guess mine are pretty perky for being kind of large. i don’t know what they would look like had i not slept in a bra though? now that i’m pregnant they hurt, so wearing the bra helps wrangle them in and makes them not hurt as much.

I found that sleeping in loose sports bras is most comfortable since my boobs have gotten so big and feel so sore.  It definetry relieves some of the pain at night and for that matter all day.  I gave up on my regular bras

i didn’t wear a bra to sleep with my daughter and I haven’t this time either. I did have to sleep with a bra for a year while breast feeding because my boobs leaked all night long

Scientific evidence is supporting the opposite, that using a bra incourages your ligaments and muscles to weaken and then they can’t support your breasts properly when you don’t wear a bra. I’d wear one only for comfort. Also, a sleep bra is going to do next to nothing to offer support anyway.

Also, stretch marks are genetic and have nothing to do with clothing choices, creams, etc.

Motherhood maternity store tried telling me the same thing, I had a hard time not laughing in their faces. No, that is not how boobs work. I started the pregnancy as a 32d, at 38 weeks I’m a   34dd (which would translate to 32f). I sometimes wear a nursing tank top to bed, which gives some support for comfort. I have not strectch makes, misshapen boobs or sagging.
