Dear Dish-It: Bras to Bed?

Dear Dish-It,


Should girls wear bras to bed?


Ms. Uncomfortable


Dear Ms. Uncomfortable,


Girls who are just starting or are in puberty may start wearing their bra to bed, usually because they're so excited to "finally" be able to wear a bra and be on the road to womanhood that they want to keep the feeling going all the time, even after the lights go out! Either that or they're actually embarrassed about or uncomfortable with the way their body is changing. They don't want other people - even their parents or brothers and sisters - to see these new, strange shapes! So they wear a bra 24-7 so that no matter WHAT happens (fire, sudden tornado, etc) they are safe and protected!


Either way, wearing a bra to bed is NOT a good idea. Breasts are normal body parts and need to have at least some portion of time free to bend and stretch. Nighttime is the body's chance to heal and recover from the stresses of the day. It's very important for your breasts to get a "normal" blood flow into them, which may not happen 100% of the time when you're wearing a bra during the day.


Bottom line: If you or someone you know is hooked on sleeping with a bra, it's time to break that habit, for the sake of your breasts!

How Long Do You Wear Your Bra?

  • All day - even while I'm sleeping.
  • Less than 12 hours.
  • More than 12 hours, but not to bed.
  • I don't wear a bra yet.

I think the title is fairly self explanatory. I don't know how to explain self harm scars and cuts to my friends (don't even get me started on my father) without having them completely freak out on me or think I'm a total basket case. I can't hide most the scars and cuts given their placement. I'd also like to know how to explain it to a friend's parent bc I know that will be a problem too. - (Note: I'm not insane. Just have been a tough time lately and I snapped under too much pressure. I'm not a danger to myself anymore. End of story.) - I don't like to go into detail when discussing my self harm and why I did it, but I know my friends are very inquisitive like their parents. I just want to know how to ride out the conversation and would appreciate any help in the matter. Thanks!

But you're not in your right mind when you make that decision, or even think about it seriously.Bullying can lead to suicide, but I urge everyone thinking about it to also think of the good in their life. Exactly, because, I promise, life gets better. Even when it seems like it's not, it does, in the darkest part of your life, you'll find the hope that you lost.

TALK TO SOMEONE... it really helps to understand and get the emotions out and get help.[Jordan I hopes you doesnt mind but I moved to the Dear Dish It and done the sticky toffee :angel] It's okay Huge, I didn't know which one to put it on, because I knew you'd move it if I got it wrong, but thank you.
