In bed, at least. It turns out there are tonnes of science-backed reasons why you should embrace a little nudity at night. Sleeping naked, and lowering your body temperature in the process, shifts your sleep to the deeper stages you need to feel truly rested, according to research. And, if you have a vagina, sleeping naked could help it 'breathe', as wearing underwear increases its temperature and moisture.
