CON­SUL­TANT plas­tic sur­geon Nigel Mercer says: “As you age your skin loses elas­tic­ity, stretch­ing still fur­ther if not sup­ported.

“The av­er­age breast weighs 300g to 400g so this is the weight of the un­sup­ported mass that will flop down into your armpits as you turn over in bed at night. Many women wear a bra at night for com­fort, but it also pro­vides about eight hours of ex­tra sup­port for al­ready sagging breasts. They get big­ger as women age, so wear­ing a bra in bed at night stops fur­ther sagging.”
