This has been an ongoing debate – should you wear a bra to sleep or not. What are the possible harm wearing a bra to sleep can cause. And why do some women not wear bra. Why do some others also wear bra to bed.
People like Marilyn Monroe who wear bra for the reason that it prevents their breasts from sagging or make them pesky. On the other hand there are those who don’t wear bra to sleep in order to avoid stretch marks and the feeling of constriction
Medically, the function of the lymph nodes in the underarms is to act as natural filters that drain the breast of lymph fluid, and as the body’s first defense against cancer cells, foreign material and infections.

What will surely cause breast sagging are breastfeeding and pregnancy, and age and genetics are the ones that determine the extent of sagging. If the size of your breasts is above C then choose a soft – cup style, without much fasteners or hardware, which will provide some support from sagging.
