Why do big busted women want nightgowns with bust support?
When you need to get out of bed in the middle of the night to see a sick child or wake up early to arrange breakfast for your family, you need a nightgown that is cute, comfortable and supportive. And for those of us who do not have children in the house, it would be very nice to find a nightgown with support on the bust that is equally comfortable, supportive and sensual!
As for me? I wanted one I could wear around the house in front of my children! But only because this is the phase of life that I am in right now. I have little children standing around at night, and I wake up early to prepare breakfast for them. So if I could find something that was comfortable, but not too revealing, then I’d be totally into that.
Have you ever slept in a bra because you needed extra support?
Answer: Yes, especially if I stay with someone else or if we have guests. It’s a combination of security, modesty, and courtesy. You never know who you’re going to meet on the bathroom trip at 4 am.
What Material Is Best For A Nightgown?
Like any garment, nightgowns come in a wide variety of different fabrics that each has its own advantages.
For something light, breathable, soft, and easy to clean, cotton is the best material. Bamboo fabrics have many of the same advantages as cotton, but they are more eco-friendly.
However, none of these are especially warm, so you can choose a flannel or fleece in the coldest months.
Although nylon and polyester blends are also common because they remove moisture and are breathable, they are not always as soft as bamboo or cotton.
The only material you want to avoid is silk if you’re nursing. Silk does not remove moisture and breast milk can stain the material when your breasts inevitably leak at night.
What Types of Fabric Should I Consider?
Although you need your pajamas to be functional, you also need to feel comfortable. Different fabrics offer different pros and cons, so be sure to check the label on your sleepwear before buying.
Cotton is a breathable fabric and very popular for everyday casual wear and also sleepwear. It is not very warm, so you may need extra layers of bedding if you are in cold weather. One disadvantage, however, is that cotton does not wick moisture well. So, if you choose cotton, you may need to use pads and a bra to prevent leaks, which could be uncomfortable.
Bamboo is soft, comfortable and absorbs moisture from your skin. This is a natural and ecological option. Although bamboo is not as popular as cotton, it can be a good option for a nursing mother.
Fleece is excellent for wicking moisture from the skin, so it is often used as an insert in layers of fabric. However, fleece is not breathable, so it can cause overheating. This makes fleece a great option for women who tend to feel cold, especially at night.
Flannel is not a specific material, but rather a type of fabric. Flannel tends to be breathable and warm, which is perfect for colder seasons and climates. However, its moisture absorption properties vary depending on the material from which it is made.
Nylon and Polyester
Nylon/Polyester are synthetic materials that are highly breathable and absorb moisture well. However, they are not as soft, supple, or comfortable against the skin as cotton tends to be.
