This debate has been around and around and everyone has their own opinion. Let me see if I can help you underneath it all.
Here’s the deal with breast sag: there are no muscles in the breast. The Cooper’s Ligament is what keeps them suspended (aka perky). Over time, gravity and poor support can stretch the ligament beyond repair. Stretched ligament = saggy boobs. Any time you’re going bra-less, gravity is basically bungee jumping on your Cooper’s Ligament, pulling it down and stretching it out. If you want to keep your girls looking young, then you need to give them support all the time.
The first step is to get properly sized. You can read about proper bra size here or watch my youtube video below:
As far as sleeping in a bra goes, it may be an old debate, but we’re not taking any chances. Once you enter Sagsville, there’s no turning back that doesn’t involve an expensive visit to the plastic surgeon. Just pick a bra that’s comfortable, like a compression sports bra, bralette/bandeau or even a bra-top camisole (which is a clever combo of a bra sewn inside a cami). For a sleeping bra, it’s less about support and more about containment, so you can skip out on the underwire if you want. Check out these comfy PJ’s offered by Naughty and Nice Lingerie with a built-in bra in the camisole:
