Keeping your bra on when going to bed was said to be the secret to Marilyn Monroe’s pert breasts! But is it harmful or beneficial to wear a bra to sleep? In this episode of #ThursdayswithTang, Dr Anthony Tang reassures ladies that sleeping with or without a bra does not affect your risk of breast cancer.

It can affect your comfort level more than your health. However, if you feel more comfortable wearing a bra when you sleep, there are lots of well-designed sleep bra options you can opt for.
