In case you missed it, Halle Berry has started her own line of lingerie. Yes, the mind does reel at the combination of the words “Halle Berry” and “lingerie” together in the same sentence so it would seem to be a match made in Heaven.
Partnering up with French lingerie company Scandale Paris, Berry has put together a collection of bras and panties that are going be sold at Target stores and just like that, Target just got a lot more sexy.
Naturally, Berry is all about promoting the product now so when she was asked by InStyle what her favorite pieces of lingerie were she dropped this little nugget on us…
I really need a good bra. My mother has taught me since I was very young that if you don’t want your boobs to hit your knees by the time you’re 30, always wear a bra, even to bed. Comfort is important to me because I wear a bra around the clock. Bras to me are key. For a girl like me, a good bra is everything. And I like to dress up with lacy underwear. I wear stockings. I play. You know we do [laughs]. But my favorite is having a good bra.
Halle Berry likes to play dress up with lacy underwear…once again the mind reels. But I digress…
As for the bra comment, Berry wasn’t joking, because she also said pretty much the same thing to Yahoo! in a separate interview…
[Berry] also recalled a crucial life lesson her mom taught her: always wear a good bra, or gravity will show no mercy. “She said if I don’t want my boobs to hit my knees by the time I’m 30, always wear a bra, even to bed,” Berry says.
She really likes that line, doesn’t she?
I guess when you are competing with literally dozens of lingerie companies in the world (women REALLY spend the money on lingerie, God bless ’em all) you gotta go with the hard sell and convince women that not only do they need to wear a bra during the day, but hey, wearing one while you sleep would be a pretty good idea too, you know?
Meanwhile, men the world over who sleep with wives and girlfriends weep at the thought of another barrier being deployed at night.
