Sleep is important for every function of your body, and it can make or break your everyday productivity, wellbeing, and happiness. May is Better Sleep Month so we’re helping you hit the hay with our fabulous sleep bras. Come experience the difference resting in our comfortable sleep bras can make in your life.
Why is Sleep so Important?
In addition to exercise and a healthy diet, sleep is among the top three things you can do for your health. That’s because sleep is the time when your body can relax, restore, and rejuvenate after a long day of moving, thinking and performing all sorts of involuntary actions. Your body requires this “down time” to regenerate and rebuild, whether that’s muscle growth, brain connectivity, or sorting through emotions. Countless studies conclude that getting adequate sleep leads to better concentration, problem-solving, athletic performance, weight management, and a healthier immune system. Plus, it lowers risk of diabetes, heart attacks, strokes and depression. In fact, achieving the ideal amount of sleep may help you live longer.
How Much Sleep Do I Need?
Although everyone’s needs differ based on age, health, and lifestyle factors, research shows seven to nine hours of sleep is the right amount for most adults. Sleeping less can lead to a host of health concerns as well as general fatigue, lack of alertness, and moodiness. Getting too much sleep may be a problem as well. Hitting the sweet spot ensures cellular restoration without overdoing it.
What’s a Sleep Bra?
If you’ve never tried a sleep bra (also known as a sleeping bra), you’re in for a real treat! Think of your coziest pajamas – if they were a bra, they’d be a sleep bra. Sleep bras are designed without back closures so that lying in any position, including directly on your back, is comfortable. Sleep bras are comfortable front closure bras or have a pullover design. And everything about them is thoughtfully constructed to help you get your best night’s sleep.
The soft, stretchy, breathable fabric is flexible enough for mobility during sleep and relaxation but offers gentle support so your breasts are well-positioned in the night. That means no more drooping or sagging as you shift during sleep, an otherwise uncomfortable predicament that can cause wakefulness. The wide straps, back support, and wireless comfort bands on sleep bras ensure a “barely there” feel to help you stay asleep all night long.
Sleep Bras for Every Body
Sleeping bras can be a “sleep-changing” experience. Rather than counting sheep, waking in the night, or waking too early, sleep bras can help you achieve a truly relaxing, restorative night’s sleep. Leading Lady offers a range of traditional sleep bras and specialty sleep bras – including sleep bras for large breasts, maternity sleep bras and nursing sleep bras – to meet the perfect bra fit for every woman.
