HEALTH Leisure bras safe for sleep

Q. Is it safe to sleep with a bra on? I've heard different things.

A. Yes, it is OK to sleep with a bra on, provided the bra is designed for this purpose. Bras designed for sleep (sometimes called leisure bras) are soft, stretchy and made of smooth, breathable cotton or nylon. They can provide coverage and comfort without causing irritation.

Bras designed for daytime use emphasize support, shaping and minimal slippage. They often have underwires, firm elastic and nonstretch straps. If you wear daytime bras to bed, you are at risk for friction, irritation and sweating beneath the fabric. This can lead to chafing and skin sores on your breasts, chest or shoulders. That's why you may have heard advice not to go to sleep wearing a regular bra.
