Should You Sleep With Your Bra On?


All of us ladies agree one of the best parts of the day is when we get home and take our bra off. But should we then sleep with a bra on before we go to sleep?

Some people say yes, it stops sagging and reduces stretch marks. Whereas others say no, it causes health risks and discomfort. Unfortunately there is no scientific evidence to these theories.

So really it comes down to personal preference. There is no evidence wearing a bra will cause breast cancer. There is a possibility if the bra is too tight or not fitting correctly it can cause discomfort which could lead to further health risks. So the main objective is to get fitted correctly and make sure your bra is fitting where it should be.

“80% of women are wearing the wrong bra size”

If you are sleeping in the wrong kind of bra, then you could really run into some serious problems. Professor Kefah Mokbel, lead breast surgeon at the London Breast Institute, says, “Wearing a constrictive bra to sleep affects the physiology of the breast. It can impair the blood flow and lymphatic drainage, which, at worst, can lead to chronic inflammation, oedema (fluid retention) and discomfort.” If you find marks on your body from your bra strap or the side panel of your bra, then you might be wearing a bra that is too tight and constrictive for you.

Ladies with a larger cup size are more likely to feel the need to wear a bra at night, as they find it more comfortable and secure and the bra is then supporting the breasts. If this is the case, it is better to wear a bra without underwire, you want a bra that is lightweight and no wire so it won’t be digging into you as you sleep.

Read our Bra Fitting Service Page online and check whether you are wearing the correctly fitted bra.

Don’t just take our word for it, here is just some of the feedback from our satisfied customers

As it’s Global Handwashing Day

As it’s Global Handwashing Day we are saying Handwash those bras as well!

Bras with underwires and lace are delicate. So they should be washed with care!
All you need to do is fill up the bathroom sink, add some cool water and gentle soap mixture, give it a move around, soak for 5-10 minutes, rinse & then hang to dry. Not as hard as it seems!


Are You Wearing The Correct Bra Size?


Are you wearing the correct bra size?

When was the last time you were fitted properly for a bra? If the answer is more than 12 months ago you need a fitting!

We at Browns Lingerie are proud to say that everyday we change ladies lives when we correctly fit them for a bra. Our team are fully trained in fitting and will assess your size correctly.

Here are a few main reasons you need to check your bra size –

  • Does your bra band ride up in the back? If it does, you need a smaller size band (that’s the number in a bra size e.g 30, 32, 34. The letter represents the cup size). The band must sit firm and level to fully support you, and should not be riding up the back.
  • Do your breasts spill over the top of your cups? This means your cup size is too small. The cup is squashing you into the bra and is forcing the breast tissue out, some call it the 4 boob look! Going up a cup size will solve this problem.
  • Does your bra cup stand away from your breasts? Then your cup is too large, you are not filling the cup so by wearing a smaller cup size will stop any gaping.
  • Do your bra straps dig into your shoulders? Your band is too loose. The main support of the bra should come from the back band, not the straps. So by wearing a tighter band will stop it riding up the back and have less strain on the shoulders. Also some bras have particularly long straps so this may force you to wear them higher up – a simple solution is to get those straps altered so you have less strain on your shoulders.
  • Are your breasts uneven? Everyone has one cup larger than the other, the trick is to always fit to the larger cup. If there is a large difference you can add padding to the smaller cup making the breasts even.
