    Unhappy Sleeping in your forms can be DANGEROUS!

    I mean silicone forms. It's been 10 days and my blisters still haven't healed completely.

    I sometimes like to sleep en fem. My standard outfit is a tite sports bra, DD solid silicone forms, (no poly covering, no gooey interior to leak), and an all in one girdle. Usually I have no problems. But, this last time I woke up with burning pain under my rite nipple. A 3" long blister had formed overnite!

    It burned day and nite for 4 days. Had problems sleeping. Finally, after a week it dried up. But, it's still sensitive to the touch!

    Anyone else have this happen?

    I've had similar issues just during a normal day. My enhancers weren't placed propearly in the cups and blisters formed. Very painful.

    When I used to wear poly covered forms for a long period of time, I used to sometimes get a ring of thin blisters around the edge of them.

    Maybe a tight sports bra is not the best option. I have fully silicone forms and wear a fairly loose underwire bra at night. There is no chafing from the forms. I have noticed one issue that everyone should consider. Silicone forms needs to be washed regularly and thoroughly to remove dead skin cells, dried perspiration and the bacteria that grow in that environment. If the forms are not cleaned properly, the likelihood of impaired healing or skin infection will go way up. Consider using an over the counter antibiotic ointment, if this happens.

    I don't recall ever sleeping with bra & forms. It doesn't sound very comfortable.

    I wear mine to bed every day and have for years.
    I've never experienced anything like that. Sometimes if I've worn them all day they might get a little "itchy" at night due to moisture buildup but that's about it.
    Perhaps you are allergic to the material of the form?
    If it's from sweat then you might try using an antipersperant on your chest prior to putting on your forms?
    Can you see the REAL Me?

    This had nothing to do with fungus, allergies, or bacteria issues.

    First off, I wash my solid forms and prosthesis in the shower with me after every wearing. Never put them away until completely air dried.

    2nd, I've been wearing this same outfit to bed on and off for 10 years! With no problems.

    The blisters were caused by rubbing against my skin while I slept. Much like Racquel experienced with hers above.

    I use doubled water balloons, but almost never wear them to bed.

    I just spent a couple nights in a motel, wore my "balloons" both nights. I never have any issues.

    As far as why? Women might not wear a bra to bed, but their breasts are there all night. I enjoy sleeping with my boobs, I even sleep on my stomach wearing them.

    I sleep every night with a bra and Pals Gel Breast Forms for the past 10yrs and have never had an issue. I feel naked without them.

    I sleep with my DDs every chance I get. I wear a underwire bra. Love the feeling waking up and feeling the heavy ness of having breasts when I get out of bed.

    Doc, I use a pocket bra with my forms. So they don't touch my skin, as silicone gives me the willies lol.
    I sometimes sleep with them on.... like tonight

    Have had a blister form on a couple/three occasions.

    Biggest issue for me is the amount of tossing and turning during the night time. Bra may stay in place but the forms travel such that I wake up with a kittywampus unfeminine presentation.

    Are you sure the wound isn't a raccoon bite?

    I've slept in my silicone forms many times. I use CPAP fir sleep apnea. I can't really roll around too much since I'm attached to the machine. I'm in a DADT relationship, but my wife has decided to sleep in the other room. It gives me more freedom to indulge my femininity while sleeping.

    Why won't she sleep with me? It's either because (1) my CPAP makes too much noise and keeps her awake, (2) I stay up on the computer too late and wake her when I finally come to bed or (3) my crossdressing. She picks one of the three reasons dpending on what she wants to berate me about.
    Hi, I'm Steffi and I'm a crossdresser... And I accept and celebrate both sides of me. Or, maybe I'm gender fluid.

    Gender fluid (adj.) - Describes a person whose gender identity is not fixed. A person who is gender fluid may always feel like a mix of the two traditional genders, but may feel [more] like one gender some days, and [more like] another gender other days.

    I don't sleep with my silicone forms the paper work that came with them told me not to. I do sleep in a pair of foam forms never had a problem.

    Try a fluffy wash cloth between skin and form. It will serve as a bit of chafing gear and absorb sweat (antiperspirants don't do it for me).

    I love sleeping with my forms in and waking up and cupping a breast (My wife was never appreciative of this). I just make sure to have a bra that holds them in place well so that I don't wake up with a single, very large breast on one side if sleeping on my side. LOL

    Too much mascara is almost enough.
