Along with a few benefits, it has disadvantages too if you sleep wearing your bra at night. Some women wear bras at night because they think their breasts become saggy if they sleep without a bra. But actually wearing a bra whole night may be detrimental to your health.

However, in this post, I have come up with some health benefits you will receive only if you go to bed without your bra.

Does it sound weird to you?


But after knowing these health advantages of sleeping braless throughout the whole night, your thoughts may change. And, you start doing this too.

Here are the 7 untapped benefits of sleeping without a bra.

Sleeping braless makes your breasts saggy- It is a MYTH

Really, it is a myth and nothing else. It is completely unscientific that your breasts grow saggy over time if you sleep without wearing a bra at night. Medical science says that woman’s breasts become saggy as they grow old. So, now it is almost clear that sleeping braless cannot cause your breasts saggy. If you touch and hold a young girl’s skin, you will feel its elasticity and plumpness. On the other hand, you will not find the same feel holding an old woman’s skin. Due to age, it happens to us.

Our body needs relaxation while we sleep. But a tight-fit bra does not allow your body to breathe properly. It hinders your whole body’s blood circulation as well. So, there is no reason for wearing a bra while sleeping at night.

Sleeping braless improves your blood circulation

In order to ensure your breasts needed support, bras are made to be tight with your chest so that your breasts receive the proper support.  Otherwise, your breasts may slip off due to enough support.

blood circulation

Your chest, neck, shoulder and the area around your bra keeps very tight which can restrict blood circulation. This can bring health issues if it continues over time. As a result, you may face some health problems including varicose veins, dizziness, cramps and other similar diseases.

Conversely, taking your bra off before bed offers your body to circulate properly. It also allows your body to heal and restore proper blood circulation. Besides, you can sleep well throughout the whole night.

Sleeping braless protects you from fungal infection

Underwears are often responsible for fungal infection in both male and female. Men pursue their day jobs wearing undergarment. Mostly, in the hot summer season, underwears cause fungal infection where there is almost no chance to circulate any air. Harmful bacteria find this dark area as their best-growing places.

Similarly, women’s skin needs proper air circulation as well. Insufficient airflow over your skin also causes bacteria and harmful germs to spread fast. Bacteria and germs find areas on your skin that are normally kept dark, warm and moist. Perhaps, you have also seen the fungal infection under your armpit. This fungal infection can lead your breasts to pain, itchiness and so on if you sleep wearing a bra at night.

So, putting your bra off before going to sleep keeps your skin dry and cool. Thus you can keep away from any fungal infection on your breasts because of sufficient airflow over your skin.

Your skin needs to come back its original shape

Wearing tight bras all day long can leave a dent in your lovely skin. Not only that- there you may find permanent indentation as well. Other clothing also does the same thing to your skin such as socks, watches, pantyhose, and bras.

If you wear a bra at night as well, your skin will not get the opportunity to bounce back again- meaning it may not come back its original shape again. And, it will result in a permanent dent on your skin restricting your body’s blood circulation too.

Grab the chance of intimacy with your life partner

Are you married? If you are married, you know the importance of increasing the intimacy between you and your partner. Skin-on-skin touch is a fantastic way to grow intimacy in the long run.

You may have heard the name of a hormone named ‘love hormone’ or oxytocin hormone. Your body releases the hormone only when you keep in touch with your husband without clothing. It increases the depth of the relationship as well. It also decreases your stress.

Sleeping braless protects your lovely skin from harmful germ attack and improves personal life too.

Decrease the risk of breast cancer

There is fluid in our blood named lymph fluid which fights against a toxin that is responsible to increase the chance of cancer. Wearing bras at night hinders this fluid to flow with your blood.

So, the non-fluid blood due to wearing tight bras at night flows to the body triggering the chance of causing breast cancer.

On the other hand, removing bras before going to bed for sleep prevents to grow abnormal cells that cause breast cancer.

Avoid the risk of diabetes

Brown fat works well when your body temperature is getting down. This fat actually burns your body’s extra calories at a normal temperature. When you sleep braless, your body gets the chance to decrease its temperature and allow this brown fat to continue its process of burning fat.


It has another benefit as well. As this brown fat burns calorie, weight loss is its ultimate outcome too. Thus you can keep far away from diabetes just sleeping without a bra.
