This Is Why You Should Never Wear A Bra To Sleep
Wearing a bra while sleeping can do more harm than good for your br3asts. One of the major negative health effects of wearing a bra to bed is that it may inhibit your circulation, especially, if the bra you are wearing is underwire.
During sleep, the wire of the bra gets tight against your skin constricting the pectoral muscles (muscles of the chest wall). This restricts the flow of blood to the nerves present in your arms and other areas of the body.
Wearing a bra at night with tight compression harms your br3ast tissue as wearing it constantly also restricts blood circulation to the br3ast tissue. Poor blood circulation may result in symptoms of dizziness and cramps. It also leaves you restless during sleep.
Since we have looked at some negative effects of wearing a bra at night, why don’t we look at the benefits of sleeping without a bra? I stated earlier that sleeping with a bra leaves you restless, in the opposite direction, sleeping without a bra, improves your sleep, makes you sleep properly and peacefully without any struggles or unnecessary turns. Lack of good quality sleep results in tiredness, memory problems and reduced mental alertness the following day.
Bras are so designed that they remain tight and hold up your br3asts properly all through the day. If bras are loose they will not provide any support to your br3asts and may not even remain in their place and slip off. Bras may restrict your blood circulation, especially if you are sleeping with a bra on. Hence, the benefits of sleeping without a bra are that you are giving a break to your body during which your body heals and restores proper circulation.
When you are lying down, your upper airways become narrow, making it difficult for air to travel to the lungs. When you wear tight clothes that restrict the movement of the chest it becomes even more difficult for air to get into your lungs.
Bras are a perfect example of clothing that restricts chest movement. They are wrapped tightly around the ribcage and prevent the ribs from expanding completely. When wearing a bra to bed, your breathing is shallow, in comparison to not wearing a bra to bed. This results in a reduced intake of oxygen. Hence, sleeping without a bra allows proper breathing.
Wearing a bra to bed, especially tight ones makes you sweat more. Sweating is uncomfortable, unhygienic and produces a bad odor. Hence, sleeping without a bra is hygienic and reduces the chance of any injury by the buttons or hooks of the bra.
Wearing tight clothing such as a bra leaves a mark or indentation in your skin. By wearing them frequently, these marks may become permanent. By not wearing a bra to bed at night you are giving some time to your skin to bounce back to its original shape.
