What Is A Sleep Bra?
A sleep bra is a type of bra designed specifically for wearing during sleep or lounging. These bras often resemble sports bras or non-wired crop tops in style and are intended to offer a comfortable and relaxed fit whilst still providing some light support for your breasts.
There are endless options for the best sleep bras for you to consider. Some come with built-in support and are available padded or with removable padding. Additionally, there are sleep bras tailored for breastfeeding and new mothers that feature convenient fastenings for easy access and extra padding to enhance comfort.

Is It Good To Sleep In A Bra?
The decision to sleep in a bra ultimately comes down to personal comfort. There is no definitive "should" or "shouldn't" when it comes to wearing a sleep bra, but if you have larger breasts, it may feel more comfortable to have some level of support while settling down to sleep.
You may find that wearing a sleep bra provides added support and prevents discomfort during sleep, while others may prefer the freedom of not wearing one, so as with all clothing decisions, you should prioritise your personal comfort and preference when selecting sleepwear.
Why Use Sleep Bras?
It is widely recognised that a good night's sleep is essential for maintaining overall health and well-being. While a good night's sleep can have numerous benefits, including improved focus, mood, and immune system function, the comfort of sleepwear, including bras, can impact your ability to achieve quality sleep. This is where sleep bras come into play. These specially designed bras prioritise comfort without compromise.
The Benefits of Sleep Bras
If you choose to use one, sleep bras can offer several benefits that contribute to comfort and well-being during sleep.
- Comfort: Sleep bras are specifically designed with soft, non-restrictive materials and seamless construction to provide exceptional comfort throughout the night. They eliminate the discomfort often associated with traditional bras, allowing for a more relaxing and uninterrupted sleep.
- Support: While prioritising comfort, sleep bras also offer gentle support to ensure proper breast positioning during sleep. They provide a light level of support without the use of underwires, allowing for natural movement and reducing the risk of discomfort or potential damage to breast tissue.
- Reduced Discomfort: Sleep bras minimise the likelihood of breast movement during sleep, which can help reduce breast soreness, tenderness, or discomfort, especially if you have larger breasts. They provide a gentle and secure fit that supports breast tissue and prevents excessive bouncing or movement.
- Improved Sleep Quality: By enhancing comfort and reducing discomfort, sleep bras can contribute to improved sleep quality. The absence of underwires or tight straps eliminates potential pressure points, allowing for a more restful and undisturbed sleep.
- Versatility: Sleep bras are not limited to nighttime wear alone. They can be worn during lounging hours or as comfortable alternatives to traditional bras throughout the day. The versatility of sleep bras makes them a practical addition to a woman's wardrobe, providing comfort and support beyond sleep hours.
- Skin Health: Many sleep bras use breathable, moisture-wicking fabrics that promote better air circulation and prevent excess sweat accumulation. This helps maintain optimal skin health, reducing the risk of skin irritation or discomfort.
Sleep Bra Vs No Sleep Bra
Please note that individual experiences may vary, and it's essential to choose sleepwear that best suits your personal comfort and needs.
What To Look For When Choosing A Sleep Bra
Consider the following factors when selecting your best sleep bra to maximise your comfort through the night:
The material of your sleep bra plays a crucial role in determining its comfort. Opt for sleep bras made of breathable and soft fabrics, such as cotton or bamboo. These materials feel gentle against your skin and allow for proper airflow, keeping you cool and comfortable throughout the night.
The ability of the fabric to wick away moisture is also important in preventing sweat buildup, enhancing overall comfort.
Just like with any other bra, selecting the correct size is paramount for optimal comfort and support. A sleep bra that is too tight can cause discomfort and restrict movement, while one that is too loose may not provide the necessary support.
Take accurate measurements and refer to the sizing chart provided by the brand to find the perfect fit. Remember that a well-fitted sleep bra will ensure both comfort and effective support.
The design of a sleep bra can greatly impact its comfort level. Look for features that enhance your overall experience, such as wireless construction, which eliminates the discomfort and pressure associated with underwires.
Seamless sleep bras minimise friction and irritation against your skin, ensuring a smooth and comfortable feel. Wide and adjustable straps can provide added support and customization, allowing you to find the perfect fit for your unique body shape.
By paying attention to the material, size, and design of your best sleep bra, you can select the right one for you.
Caring For Your Sleep Bras
Proper care is essential to maintain the longevity and performance of your sleep bras. By following these simple tips, you can ensure that your sleep bras stay in great condition for as long as possible:
- Washing: Always refer to the washing instructions provided by the manufacturer. While some sleep bras may be safe for machine washing, others may require gentle hand washing to protect their delicate fabrics and constructions. Consider using lingerie bags in the washing machine to prevent snagging, use a mild detergent, and wash in cool water to maintain the integrity of the bra's materials.
- Drying: Air-drying your sleep bras is highly recommended to preserve their elasticity and shape. Avoid using a dryer, as the heat can cause the bra's fabric and elastic to deteriorate over time. Gently reshape the cups and lay the bra flat on a clean towel or drying rack to dry naturally. This method helps retain the bra's original form.
- Storage: To prevent damage and maintain the shape of your sleep bras, it's best to store them flat. Folding bras can lead to creases or deformities in the cups, compromising their fit and appearance. If you have limited space, consider using a lingerie drawer organizer or dedicated bra storage box to keep your sleep bras organized and protected.
In conclusion, sleep bras can offer a range of benefits that make them a valuable addition to every woman's wardrobe. With their emphasis on comfort, support, and versatility in style, sleep bras can be a great item of clothing to keep in your wardrobe for lounging, sleeping, and even running errands.

Do sleep bras need adjustable straps?
While adjustable straps can offer additional customisation and versatility in terms of fit, making them more useful for those with larger breasts, sleep bras do not necessarily need them and many styles come with fixed straps in a crop top style.
Is a cotton sleep bra best?
Cotton is a natural fibre that feels gentle against the skin, making it comfortable for extended periods of wear, including during sleep. It allows for better airflow, which can help regulate body temperature and prevent excessive sweating. Because of these properties, cotton is a great material for sleep bras.
Is a supportive sleep bra important?
Yes, a supportive sleep bra can be important, especially if you have a larger bust. While sleeping, breast movement can occur, especially during changes in sleep positions. A supportive sleep bra helps minimize this movement, providing comfort and reducing potential discomfort or strain on breast tissue.
