Remember that feeling of getting in from the office (anyone?!) and ripping your bra off?

That feeling of freedom and comfort as you slipped the straps over your shoulders and your entire body began to feel more relaxed. Bliss.

However, when it comes to sleeping, not all of us find it comfortable to go bra-less.

Sometimes a little support can be comforting.

Marks & Spencer has launched a Flexifit sleep bra, made from breathable Flexfit fabric that moves with you, and a cleverly designed ‘invisible’ internal frame.

The bra, which is available in navy and grey, is a dedicated ‘sleep’ product, perfect for layering under sleepwear or teaming with your comfiest pyjama bottoms.

Soozie Jenkinson, head of lingerie design at M&S explains: “Hidden within our dress sized sleep bra, you will find a discreet internal frame designed to provide gentle support throughout the night. This innovative pull on bra top is a perfect piece to layer under lounge or sleepwear and is designed to support women whilst asleep.”

The bra comes in sizes 8 to 22, designed to fit A-E cups. The design is also available for fuller cup sizes F-H cups.

And though the bra is relatively new to the retailer’s digital shelves, shoppers have already started leaving reviews, which can offer some guidance around sizing.

“Been wearing this for two weeks now for bed, it's cool but supportive and comfortable. I got a size 12 and am bra size 34D and it's snug - size up if you’re any bigger as it can lift from chest at the underboob bit. Wouldn't want it any tighter! But love it,” said one customer.

Another added: “Will be ordering some more, love them, [they] give great support and comfort. Just wish they were available in Black. I'm a 38F and bought 18. Hope this helps.”
