Friday's Faux Paw

First off, I'd like to thank everyone who has sent me well wishes. I am feeling a lot better now.

Today's faux paw is about wearing the correct bra. I saw a woman the other day who looked like she had a set of boobs on her back because her bra was way too tight and riding up causing back fat to ooze out underneath. Not an attractive look! 

Here are tips to make sure you get the correct bra for your size:

  1. Get a tape measure and put on the best bra that you have.
  2. Measure your band size by putting the tape measure around the bottom of the bra. Write it down in inches.
  3. Meaure your bust size by putting the tape around your breasts at the fullest point, which typically is where your nipples are. Write it down in inches.
  4. Figure out the cup size by subtracting the band size from the bust size.If your bust size is less than 1 inch bigger than your band size, you’re a cup size AA, 1-inch difference = A, 2-inch difference = B,3-inch difference = C, 4-inch difference = D, 5-inch difference = DD.

Now go out and get the right bra. Or if you're having difficulties, go and see a professional bra fitter. Otherwise I give this rating:

  1. Always good to know! I can't tell you how many times I see people wearing a bra with at least a band size that is way too small! I want to tap them on the shoulder and let them know that they need to get their $h!z figured out cos they look ridiculous!
