    No, absolutely not. They might give you a sore chest, but they do not cause cancer or any other illness. (Nor does antiperspirant.)

    I completely agree! This is just a myth and nothing you need to worry about. There are studies out there that show that this definitely is NOT true. As janewhite1 said, all that can happen is that it can make your chest sore if they don't fit properly. I know sometimes if I fall asleep in an underwire bra, I may feel like I have a little bruise from it if I sleep funny.
