should a woman wear a bra to bed

No one wants an uncomfortable bra. In fact, those bras typically get tossed to the back of our lingerie drawers. What we do want, though, is a bra that is so comfortable we could sleep in it. Many of us have fallen asleep with our bras on and woken up in the morning with irritation and discomfort. Fortunately, there are a few styles out there that can change that.

What are the best bras to wear to bed? Wireless bras, soft cup bras, and bralettes are three styles worth seeking out. These styles lack underwire – something you’ll want to avoid with a sleep bra.

Here are our favorite bras to wear to sleep:

Adriana Lace Bralette

With its stretch lace fabrication and supportive wireless construction, the Adriana Lace Bralette is one of our top picks for a sleep bra. This bralette provides the perfect amount of support without feeling restricting. Plus, it provides a little lift and doubles as an everyday bra too!

When we think of comfort, soft fabrics like modal come to mind. The Dalis Bralette is made almost entirely out of soft modal to help you get a good night’s sleep. This chic bralette features seamed cups, a supportive elastic band, and adjustable straps so you can customize the fit, too.

If you’re looking for more support than a bralette, a molded wireless bra is the next best thing. The seamless cups and soft microfiber construction of the Aline Wire-Free Padded Bra feel lightweight and comfortable on the body. This bra provides more coverage than a bralette – and it’s wireless – so you won’t have to worry about waking up sore the next morning.

Bras can be expensive, so it’s often best to pick a style that you know you’ll get a lot of wear out of. While the Emma Wire-Free Soft Padded Bra is a brilliant day to day bra, it makes a great sleep bra, too. We love how the soft, high-quality fabrication adds comfort to an already versatile design. It’s just one of those styles that you put on and forget you’re even wearing it.

Pro tips

Should you wear a bed to bed? At the end of the day, the choice is yours. If you do choose to wear a bra to sleep, make comfort a priority. Remember: You don’t need a bra with a snug band for sleep. In fact, don’t be afraid to buy your bra sister size (bigger band size and smaller cup size) for a more comfortable fit. Just be sure the bra provides a decent amount of support on the middle or last hook so you can get a decent amount of wear out of out. Also, avoid any bras with underwire. Lastly, be sure to consult with your doctor before you start wearing bras to bed and consider getting a bra fitting if you’re not sure which size to buy.
