A couple years ago, an American actress, Halle Berry, revealed in an interview that she'd been sleeping in a bra since age 16; although Berry boasts an enviable decolletage, it has nothing to do with her bra habits. There’s no scientific evidence that wearing a bra or not wearing a bra will make a difference with what happens to your breasts over time. A lot of drooping and dropping happens mainly because of pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding. According to experts, over time, perkiness fades as gravity pulls the ligaments in your breasts downward. So, you can sleep with the bra ON!
