Wearing a bra while sleeping at night

I wear a sports bra day and night. I have heard that if I don't my breast will sag. Although I'm not sure if that's true, but I'm not taking any risks LOL. Pre-pregnancy I was very perky(even though I was in 34 C bras) so the thought of sagging even a little is depressing.

i wear a bra with a bra tank to bed, pregnant or not. my boobs are huge and i find it really uncomfortable to be without both. but i'm growing out of my DD already so last night i only slept with a bra tank because i couldn't breathe. my breasts hurt so bad this morning. anywho, the point i'm trying to make is even sleeping with bra and bratank my boobs are still saggy (and i'm only 20!). i really don't think it matters much what you do. like stretch marks, it's all in the genes.

Wearing or not wearing a bra won't make a difference on the sagging. It's a matter of the stretching of everything and how elastic your skin is.
They've said that breastfeeding will cause sagging, but it's not true either. It's the expansion of the skin and ducts during pregnancy that affect their later appearance.

My youngest weaned at 31 months. (I was pregnant, so didn't mind. But when I lost the baby, I was really upset.) I homeschool, use natural products, cosleep, cloth diapers, wear my baby, attachment parent, don't vaccinate, and love God, my husband of over 19 years, and my kids!

I always wear a sleep-bralet thing - even pre-preg. It just feels more comfortable to me. Or, like someone else said - a tank with a built in bra. I was a D to begin with so maybe it just has something to do with them being on the larger side, but I just can't sleep without one! Hey - if it helps with the sag, too - great!

I don't know about the sagging...but I also can't wear a bra to sleep...and most nights I go to bed w/o one. But I try to wear my bra tanktops...not maternity or anything like that...but they don't seem to give me any support. I hope it's not true about the sagging. Considering they're growing it would be nasty if they were sagging too.

i wear the bratop tanks from motherhood to bed. They aren't as constricting as a bra but they still give me enough support so that i can sleep comfortably.

I bought a non underwire criss cross style bra (sorts like a loose sports bra) to wear at night, it is pretty comfy and I feel more secure and "firm" wearing it. :-)
