Wondering if anyone else has this problem. Whenever I sleep on my side, in a bra, it shifts and is extremely uncomfortable to the point I dread long transoceanic flights now. Any ideas on bras that are comfortable to sleep in?
How about not a bra, but a stretchy camisole with a built-in shelf bra? Places like Victoria's Secret sell these; I have several for use with see-through blouses. They're very comfortable, at least for someone like me who is lucky/unlucky enough to be able to go commando in a pinch (or at least, in a thick, loose-fitting top!)

How about wearing something concealing and slipping "out of harness" in the bathroom? Other than that, a Wacoal non-underwire with a band one size larger than the fitters think you need is pretty darn comfortable (but not so comfortable that getting out of harness isn't a relief).
I wear the Bali 3036 cotton non-underwire bra for travel. It is much less restrictive than a sports bra yet has more support than the Genie/Ahh nylon knit bras and doesn't bind and pinch like an underwire. It's also CHEAP! I do wish it came in nude; it only comes in white and grey.
When was the last time you were fitted for bras? And how old are the bras you're wearing? A well-fitted bra should fit like a glove...almost impossible to shift. I'd suggest going to a place like Nordstrom's for a new fitting.
I've been fitted at Nordstom and a good lingerie shop - supposedly I am fine. It's just the center wires that bunch up when I'm on my side. And these are demi bras too, I can't imagine howmuch a full coverage one would do it. Is it just me with this problem? Do most women take their bras off?
I'm quite well-endowed and prefer underwire bras for support (and comfort, ironically...) But when I do overnight flights, I do wear a non-underwire bra. Lately I've been wearing the Bali "downtime cool stretch" bra - http://www.barenecessities.com/bali-...pf_id=Bali3375
I don't like it as much as underwire in general, but it's great for flights. Sports bras are too confining, shelf bras are useless- this is a nice middle ground for me. And I can find them cheap on sale at Kohls.....
I have some oversized Lufthansa shirts/sweaters from when I flew in F. When I fly TATL, I change into one of those (and take my bra off) & wrap my pashmina around me. Before landing I put my regular top/sweater & bra back on. Keeps my clothing fresh & eliminates the uncomfortableness of trying to sleep w/ bra.
32DD, I wear my bra during overnight flights, though I've probably taken it off in first class if I felt my seat had sufficient privacy.
I haven't found any demi bras that offer enough support to wear on an overnight flight. My day-to-days bras are either Wacoal (full coverage, a couple styles, all underwire) or Chantelle. You also might consider wearing a sports bra, which are designed to offer even more support.

32DD here as well. I travel in sports bras (otherwise the girls get very uncomfortable with the suitcase lifting, walking, etc) and they are great for sleeping as well. I, personally, am a fan of Lululemon's supportive bras but there are plenty of brands that are comfortable for different shapes and sizes.
