Is it bad to wear only sports bras?

I never wear regular bras, whether I'm playing sports or not. Also is it bad to wear bras when you sleep. Thanks.

Depends on how large your chest is. Without good support, they will start to sag.

Oh, ok, thanks. How do you know if the sports bra doesn't have good support? If anything, it feels more loose with a regular bra than a sports bra.

pinkpixies,

just want to let you know, that any sized breasts will start to sag without good support.

i would think that wearing sports bras would probably be best for your breasts as they are known for great support so i don't see why it would be bad. as for wearing it at night, if you can why not? most people just don't because of habit or discomfort, though if you get used to wearing it at night, that's great. don't see how they can be harmful in any way.

Re: Is it bad to wear only sports bras?

When I was a kid and first developing, my doctor told my mother that I needed to get a good bra like the cross your heart bras b/c sports bras don't provide proper support. I have a large chest and personally I find bras with under wires more supportive and keep things "up"

Re: Is it bad to wear only sports bras?

Thanks to you both. I think if I found a regular bra that had the same sort of fit as a sports bra I would wear that, but I'm really bad at finding stuff that fits. I do wear it at night, mainly because I hate the feeling of being too ...free... haha.

Thanks again =)

Edit: Where can I find a cross your heart bra? I think I know which kind you mean but I've never seen them anywhere. They seem comfortable.

Re: Is it bad to wear only sports bras?

I believe cross your heart is made by Playtex. I think they sell them in the boxes in Walmart. You can also look online. I'm sure a simple search will bring it up. You may also want to look into getting measured professionally to get a bra that is the proper size. Sounds like you aren't wearing the right size bra to me.

Ah, ok, I will check it out then. I guess it's important to have the right size. Thanks again.
