What is a Sleep Bra?

Do you have a hard time getting to sleep because of your breasts? Do you want a soft, comfortable bra you can slip into after work? Would you love a bra with just a little support for lounging around the house on the weekend? A sleep bra may be exactly what you need!

A sleep bra is a soft, gentle bra design that provides minimal support and is intended for sleep and leisure activities. They're typically made from cotton or soft fabric blends, and they're great for women who have sensitive breasts or women who just want a soft bra to wear after work or while relaxing.

Sleep bras also provide support for women whose breasts are heavy enough to cause discomfort while sleeping; these bras are designed to provide just enough containment to keep your breasts from sagging in a manner that will disrupt your breathing or interrupt your sleep. Many full-busted women find they sleep more easily with a sleep bra providing gentle support throughout the night.
