The relationship between women and bras has always been rather love hate. When you find a nice looking bra that fits well and is comfy you love it like your best friend and wear it to the death! However, when you’re stuck with a bra that is ill fitting and lifeless it can be the ruin of many a good day. The lesson here is surely to always take you time when choosing a bra. Did you know that nearly 40% of women won’t try a bra on before they buy it. If you ask me that is just asking for trouble! On the other hand even if you try it on you’re not guaranteed a winner as over 80% of women wear the wrong bra size anyway. Being measured for a bra should not be a one-time exercise that is painfully gone through at the age of 13. As women, our body size and shape can change quite a lot, especially before and after pregnancy. This is why it is important to be measured regularly. You will be shocked then to discover that half of all women have never been properly fitted for a bra. This is surprising considering that all lingerie stores & stores with a lingerie department will have a free bra fitting service!
