    Default Wearing Bra to Bed?

    Hi All, I was wondering if anyone else has to wear a bra to bed because it is too painful not too? JUst checking to see if this is normal. I feel like my breast are 20 pounds each and the nipples are way too sensitive not to wear it.

    and

    I wear a bra to bed for that reason along with keeping pads on.

    Mine aren't painful or anything, but they are heavy. I feel better with a bra on. I pretty much wear one all the time. I do sometimes wear a built in bra tank top or a nursing tank. I worry about them stretching and all..haha..I don't know. Thought I would share that

    The stretch happens during pregnancy due to hormones that kick in to develop breast tissue.

    If wearing a bra makes you comfy, thats great. Make sure there is no underwire and that it is not a tight fit. These two things factor heavily in cases of breast infection in the breastfeeding mother.

    Yup. I wear a bra all the time. I have since the second trimester of my pregnancy just because my breasts were hurting. Like PP poster said though, my bras don't have underwires. Medela makes a bra with no underwire but is still pretty supportive.

    I always wear my bra to bed since I don't like my breasts to be moving around when I toss and turn. It has nothing to do with BF

    Because I was an A cup before bf, I sort of enjoy the full C cup I am now. I tend not to wear anything these days, bra-less and all that. It's a matter of personal choice and comfort.
    When my son was an infant I was a DD and it felt more important then.

    I wore a sleep bra when dd was younger, mainly to hold the pads in case of leaking. She's 7 mos and I don't leak any more, so I just go topless at night- we cosleep, so it's easier for her to find her late night snack anyway.
