While many women enjoy taking off their bra once they’re home for the day, it’s not something that’s comfortable for all women. For women with large breasts, trying to sleep without the support a bra provides can be uncomfortable. A sleep bra, purchased to be worn overnight as a part of your pajamas, is a great option to ensure that you are as comfortable as possible while you try to get your rest for the evening.
What Should You Look For in Sleep Bras?
The bras you prefer every day might not be a great option when shopping for new sleep bras. The ideal sleep bras are underwire free and have no hooks or snaps that might interfere with your sleep. That said, support can make you much more comfortable — gravity pulls your breasts to the side when you lay down and a supportive bra can be much more comfortable. Sleep bras also allow breastfeeding mothers to wear nursing pads, which can be a great comfort.
Sleep bras are more flexible than normal bras and may be sold with simpler sizes as the measurements for sleep bras don’t have to be as exact as with a push up bra or a strapless bra. When choosing a sleep bra, choose one that’s comfortable for you: a soft cotton similar to your pajamas is often your best bet.
