Sleeping nursing bras

This feels like an incredibly stupid question but: do I need to get sleeping bras for nursing after I’ve had the baby?
I’ve been happy sleeping braless throughout my pregnancy but have seen a lot of adverts for sleep bras & im really not sure if it’s something I need?
Are they in case of boob leakage in the night or support or a bit of both?
Thanks in advance ladies!

They're mostly to hold breast pads in place against leakage, but if you have quite tender breasts when your milk first comes in you might also welcome some slight support.

They're not necessarily a "must have" but a few soft sleep bras are probably helpful.

Fwiw I wore them with DC1, couldn't be arsed with DC2 and just accepted that I would leak onto whatever top I was wearing a little.

I use breastfeeding vests at night, they're loose enough to not bother me but will roughly hold pads in place so I don't smell of milk all the time!
I found wearing bras all the time very annoying.
