A friend of mine told me that I should wear a bra 24/7 because it would prevent my breasts from sagging at an early age. Is there any truth to that?

No, wearing a bra all the time will not prevent sagging. For the most part, it's age and genetics that determine breast sagging.

I totally agree with Ashy. Breast sagging is mainly due to age and genetics, not lack of bra usage. The purpose of wearing a bra is to show off your curves , keep "control", I guess you could say, of your breasts, and lift them up a little and push them in a bit.
Besides, it's not comfortable to wear an underwire while sleeping .

To my knowledge, not wearing a bra will not make you sag. It is more comfortable for me to wear one, but you should chose whatever makes you feel comfortable
