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.

Don't exactly go up to her and say, "I don't wanna be friends," because although she is mean, she still might be hurt. Just don't really make it official, but slowly drift apart from her. Try to meet new people, maybe there's someone great you just haven't met yet. And maybe she's having problems of her own, not like that's an excuse. But in the end, if she does apologize to you, she might be a friend worth keeping, but those insults were pretty serious, not something best friends would do, and you probably wouldn't forgive her. I get that. Thanks for the good advice! I don`t see her often so drifting away is the smartest idea. Although I see her at family parties and stuff cause she is a family friend. I`ll try and drift away from her. If she gets better at being kind I`ll be her friend again most likely. Thanks!

I have this friend who has been my friend for 6 years. And she is so RUDE. She says mean things about me and MY MOTHER. Seriously she says really awful things about my mom like this: "Her IQ is high? Oh she must have took the IDIOT test." And tells me "Eww you wear Disney Princess shirts? Eww you are so messed up!" She always acts better than me whether we are alone or with people. She tries to make people hate me and she tries to act mature and she alway tells me "You should respect your mom and do what she tells you" She is awful. I wanna tell her she is mean and I dont wanna be friends. But I can`t! Its hard to do that when you know someone for 7 years. HELP!

As the previous person said, look online. There are very cute clothes available in bigger sizes! Also when you go shopping take a look in popular stores as well as less popular that might look as if they're for older people. Often they follow very similar trends but have bigger sizes!
