Should You Wear a Bra to Bed?
For most women, the choice to wear a bra to bed is a matter of comfort; some enjoy or need the support of a bra, while others find a bra to be an unneeded irritant. But some women believe that wearing a bra at night increases the risk of breast cancer. Still others are under the notion that not wearing one increases the chance of, dare we say it, ‘breast sag’.
Let’s set the record straight.
First, there is no scientific evidence that wearing a brazier while you sleep will increase your chances of developing breast cancer. Claims that tight-fitting bras trap toxins in the lymphatic system have not been proven. Some magazines might tell you otherwise, but until science backs up this claim, you can forget about it.
Next, a bra at night will not magically lift your breasts to new heights. Time, gravitational pull and breastfeeding will do their work no matter how stiff your underwire is.
Comfort alone should affect your choice of what you sleep in.
Bra or no bra, a new Vancouver mattress will improve your sleep dramatically. And that’s been proven!
