Let’s talk about Sleep: Best Sleeping Positions for a Fuller Bust

Sleep – Our favourite hobby, particularly while in the midst of a pandemic! It also happens to be one of the most important things that contributes to our health. Health professionals recommend 7 to 8 hours of sleep per night for adults. For many people, this is never met – largely due to spending hours trying to find the most comfortable position. For us fuller busted ladies the problem is twofold (literally) as we have to get our breasts feeling comfortable too.

We’re going to talk through some of the best sleeping positions that will have you falling asleep in 3..2..1


The back sleeping position is not the most popular. However for a fuller bust, it makes the most sense. Sleeping on your back means a well deserved break from the weight and pressure of your chest, so is a great way to alleviate back pain – a win win if you ask me. In addition, it puts your chest firmly out of sight out of mind so you can concentrate on falling into a serene slumber. If you want to make the most of this position, try putting a pillow underneath your knees. 


The side sleeping position is perhaps the clear choice, and my personal favourite. Don’t just take my word for it, the side position is the most popular for Brits everywhere! Similar to the back, it takes a bit of pressure off your breasts though not quite as much. Now the problem with this position is your boobs will be squashed together with one on top of the other – it sounds a lot worse than it feels! To solve this, you can put a pregnancy pillow underneath your breasts for added support. There is also such a thing as a breast pillow – yes I couldn’t believe they existed either! They’re designed to separate your boobs when lying on your side hence reducing the risk of wrinkles and provides additional support. Quite a genius idea but try and shop around for the best price as some can be expensive. 


Now I know what you’re thinking – why on earth would a fuller bust woman want to sleep on her front and commit boob suicide? It’s actually not that bad. I too used to be a non-believer of the front sleeping position, but I tried it once while on my period with a hot water bottle underneath my stomach and a pillow propped under my chest and it was great! When I have really bad cramps it’s my go-to position. To make this position work, once again bring out the pregnancy pillow or any pillow for that matter, which you can use to support your boobs. There are special pillows which have so kindly carved out space for this. 

I’d recommend trying out at least one these sleeping positions that is different from your usual go-to. Who knows, you could even find a new favourite.
