Do you sleep in your bra?
I do. I have for well over four years now. Am I alone in this?
It all started when I was pregnant with Millicent. My breasts were so tender that breathing hurt them. I used to look forward to taking my bra off every night. I mean, underwires are NOT comfortable.
You know how it goes. You take it off, and scratch and rub your back and sigh a huge sigh of relief to be free. You wonder what kind of MAN invented this horrible bra.
But taking it off made me hurt worse than having it on. And having it on HURT.
So I decided it was the right time to buy a nursing bra. Did you know you don't have a lot of maternity choices? It's a nursing bra or a regular bra.
The nursing bras were pretty much free from--UNDERWIRE. I had never worn a bra without underwire. Was I going to be droopy everywhere?
Once I had it on...I didn't care if I was droopy everywhere. It was so comfortable. Then I KNEW that it was some man trying to torture his dear, sweet wife who invented the underwire bra.
I've never gone back. (And I wasn't droopy...much.)
I started then, sleeping in the soft, comfortable nursing bra, just to relieve the tenderness of free falling breasts. Ladies, you KNOW what I mean. I can't say because my husband reads my blog and it will give away some of my feminine mystique. BUT YOU KNOW what I mean.
Now I've been wearing this bra for about four years, every day and night. Well not exactly THIS bra, but bras like it. I have several.
How about you? Do you sleep in your bra?
