Finding a comfortable position to sleep can be difficult with big breasts, but it's essential for getting the rest you need. Whether you have a natural or surgically enhanced chest, finding ways to sleep comfortably with larger breasts can be challenging.
Fortunately, you can get the best night's rest possible by taking the proper precautions to keep your boobs from causing pain and irritation in your bed. Using the right pillow for your body type, sleeping positions and wearing the proper bras can make a world of difference in your quality of sleep.
Choosing the right pillow for your body type can also help alleviate pressure on the back and shoulders. The right pillow is a medium-firm one that's just thick enough to relieve the pressure without causing neck strain or upper back pain, recommends Breus and Perry.
The most comfortable sleeping position for women with large breasts is on their back, suggests Dr. Miller. This position helps reduce back pain and prevents your boobs from being smashed against the sides of your mattress.
It's important to note that sleeping on your side and stomach will cause the breast ligaments to stretch and lose elasticity over time. This can lead to sagging and shape issues.
Although sleeping in a bra won't make your breasts perkier or prevent them from sagging, some women prefer wearing them at night. For women who have fibrocystic breasts, are pregnant, or experience tenderness in the area, they may find that wearing a soft bra provides extra support while they're sleeping.
