my question is:

1)is it totally ok to sleep with bra on?
2)is it true that sleeping with bra on can cause breast cancer?
3)when sleeping,is it its not encouraged going commando(not wearing underwear) as it can cause some kind of infection?
[Confused]

From what I understand, there has been no substantial, conclusive evidence that suggests that sleeping with a bra will cause breast cancer or even lead to poor breast health. The one thing I can think of (and have found) is that they don't suggest it, especially if you wear underwire, because you could end up sleeping in such a way that blood flow is restricted to the breast tissue, and it's possible to prevent easy breathing.

But you aren't going to get cancer from sleeping with a bra on, no. That's a myth.

I'm not sure where you heard that not wearing underwear to bed can cause infections, but it's also a total myth. In fact, sleeping in something loose and non-restrictive is a GOOD thing. Your genitals need breathing room, and after wearing close fitting clothing all day, it's a wise thing to wear something loose to bed. You aren't going to get an infection, I promise.

You don't say how big you are. I'm little and I hate to wear a bra - can't imagine being constricted like that while sleeping.

Is wearing cotton bra,non-underwire bra to sleep @ night is ok?
Also is it adviseable to wear body fitting and posture support corset and full support bra to sleep?

If something is comfortable for you, then it's likely fine to wear to sleep in. It's not dangerous to do so. So if you are comfortable in a given garment, it's probably fine to sleep in.

So is that means wearing even body fitting and underwire corset+bra wont directly contribute to break cancer nor increase the risk?

If I may jump in, like Sarah Liz said, sleeping in a bra is a personal choice but would not put you at risk for cancer (unless it's radioactive or what not, which would be very extremely unlikely! [Wink] )
