They're very secretive, Mike.

What do the experts say about wearing one to sleep in?

They don't have an especially strong opinion on the matter. Some women find it more comfortable to wear a bra in bed, but unless that's the case for you then don't. It used to be claimed that wearing a bra in bed helped to maintain firmness, but this argument is no longer accepted; if anything, not wearing a bra in bed is probably preferable from this point of view.

If you do wear a bra to bed, most of the advice suggests that it should be as loose as possible, and that it should not be underwired.

Personally I think I'd find it rather uncomfortable to wear a bra to bed - but then I sleep naked, and would feel the same about any other item of clothing.

I guess it depends on volume of boobage. I've had clients who were so gynormous they would lie on one boob, so they would wake up from the pain that caused. A cotton loosefitting bra make life much easier.

Speaking as a former breastfeeding counsellor, my advice to women who are lactating was never to wear a bra in bed. In my experience it was a major cause of mastitis because bras are essentially not designed to be worn lying down and the firm edge of material pressing at the wrong angle across a lactating milk duct would tend to cause blockages preventing milk from draining properly, which would lead to swelling that then causes inflammation in the milk duct. In fact, badly-fitting bras in themselves are a big cause of mastitis for women who are breastfeeding. It's easily treatable, but not very pleasant, especially if you are taking care of a tiny infant at the same time.

I measured bra sizes for a while at a Debenhams.

Until they discovered me and threw me out, of course.

And I thought it was djgordy, and Suzie Dent came in; thus the injunction

But seriously folks, I have learned a lot from this thread, some of which may come in useful for a half-birthday prezzie for my Better Half

Her cup will floweth over.

I think that 'flowing over' is probably what we are trying to avoid.

When men buy bras for their ladies, it tends to be the overflowing/revealing kind that they choose*. With black and red as the rather predictable colours.

* Hence the après-Christmas avalange of Unwanted Item offers on eBay.

Many thanks to all for their guidance and info.
A visit was made today to M&S in Tunbridge Wells for a measuring appointment. And a selection of items were purchased which make my Better Half much happier.

Hurrah! Without going into numbers, had she been wearing the wrong size hitherto?
