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!

  • Less than 12 hours.
  • More than 12 hours, but not to bed.

That is just wrong. You really need to tell a School Counselor or Teacher. My mom use to swat my bottom once when I was little but now if I get into trouble for doing something I shouldn't I just get punished and a big lecture.
