Do I Have To Wear a Bra While in Lockdown?

Do I Have To Wear a Bra While in Lockdown?

With so many people working from home and changing their wardrobes from business casual to sweatpants (or staying in their PJs all day), many women have decided that wearing a bra is unnecessary.

While there is something to be said about being able to take your bra off after a long day, putting it away altogether during lockdown may not be the best choice. Many experts believe that going for prolonged periods of time without wearing a bra can stretch out the Cooper’s ligament. This could result in your breasts becoming saggy.

Instead of going completely braless while in lockdown, you might consider some other bra alternatives, including those that are wireless and are more comfortable. Here are some reasons why you should still be wearing a bra during lockdown:


Not only does your bra support your breasts, but it also acts as a barrier between your clothes and the delicate skin on this part of your body. If you’re not wearing a bra, your shirts may rub, which could lead to irritation and chafed skin.

Consider wearing something that is comfortable but still allows for freedom of movement. This might include a Paige Wrap Front Sports Bra or the Leslie Soft Leisure Bra. Even a Pocketed Front Closure Bra can be a good choice during these times.


Being at home puts you in a more relaxed environment, so your posture is probably suffering while you sit on the couch or lounge in your bed to get some work done. Bad posture has a lot of negative impacts on your body and could lead to back pain.

Wearing a bra can help improve your posture and reduce pain and discomfort. Again, you don’t have to put on an underwire. You can find a bra that is comfortable and supportive. A Bianca Front Closure Sports Bra can keep you comfortable and remind you to sit up straight.
