Should girls sleep with their bra on, or not?

Question: Is it OK to sleep in my bra?

Response by Medical Doctor: Mary L Gavin:

There's nothing wrong with wearing a bra while you sleep if that's what you're comfortable with. Some doctors may even recommend it when a girl's breasts are very sore.

You've probably heard all sorts of rumors, both positive and negative, about wearing a bra at night. But the truth is, there's no scientific basis to any of them. Sleeping in a bra will not make a girl's breasts perkier or prevent them from getting saggy. And it will not cause a girl to develop cancer or stunt her breast growth. (It's also not true that underwire bras cause breast cancer.)

Some women want to wear a bra to bed because they think it feels more comfortable. Your best bet is to choose a lightweight, non-underwire bra. Some camisole-style pajama tops even come with a bra built in. The bra you choose to sleep in shouldn't be too tight or have parts that dig in: that could disrupt your sleep or cause breast irritation.

On the subject of staying comfortable, it's never a good idea (day or night) to wear bras that are extremely tight or don't fit properly. Visit a department store or specialty bra shop for regular fittings while you're growing and developing.

Meanwhile, Jean Dennis Rouillion is a professor and sports science researcher at the University of Franche-Comte, and she had carried out a research on the positive and negative side effects of bras. This research has lasted for 15 years, and 330 women participated in it. The women were aged between 18 and 35, and they have been all wearing a bra from an early age. The results from the research appeared to be appalling.

Namely, the bras did not do anything in terms of supporting the chest, preventing the sagging and reducing the back pain as thought. In fact, it was quite the opposite: it turned out that wearing a bra makes the breasts even saggier. While the study lasted, some women stopped wearing a bra, and at the end of the study it was discovered that they had a 7 millimeters lift in their nipples.

According to Professor Jean, bras interrupt blood circulation and that is why women who do not wear a bra can expect better elasticity because of the increase of collagen. It is a fact that lots of women wear bra because they try not to distract people, but it turned out that getting the bra off is in fact a far better option which will improve the condition of their breasts.
