Q:

Hi mommies,
I feel very compressed n uncomfortable to wear bra..
is it okay to wear slips instead?
will it lead to sagging of my breasts?



Sheeba Vijesh

you should wear well-fitting bras, otherwise breast could loose their shape, but you could remove them at night.

Dr.Srujana Kona( PT)

U take extra size. Still if u feel discomfort, go for slips.

thnq Sheeba n Srujana :)

But I don't feel like having any cloth closer to my nipples.it hurts very badly..

Sheeba Vijesh

if its that uncomfortable, wear what's comfortable for you...

Nasreen Mansoor

are you a breastfeeding mother. ?if yes then it's very common it hurts when it full of milk whenever you feel uncomfortable just try to feed your baby or if it doesn't required then discharge it by pressing slowly under the warm shower you will feel better but try to wear bra you can opt for nursing bra which is quite comfortable

I'm 19 weeks preg..
I hav this compression feel from the initial days of my pregnancy
when I told my gynea she asked me to avoid wearing bras n tyt outfits..


I thought it will b fine over the dayz bt even now it hurts wen I tried..

that's y I thought of asking mommies over here.. :)

Sheeba Rizvi

oops sorry Nasreen I missed that part lols..anyways then you can surely go for loose fitting clothes n instead of normal bra you can try sports bra but cotton one I think jockey will b a good option  as I too used it ☺

Nasreen Mansoor

That's OK Sheeba Rizvi

Nasreen,  since you are only 19 weeks along,  you can buy bra extenders from Amazon. They are reasonable and can help you loosen your bras a bit without having to buy new ones.

Ritu V

Don't buy sports bras. Since they can lead to further compression..

hi nasreen right now ur priority should only be your comfort and well being. and if u feel that ur bra isn't the right size. get a bigger one. and if u breastfeed sagging of breasts is inevitable. it's not recommended to be wearing fitted bras or tight bras. and u can try sleeping without one during night time.
