Are you wearing the right bra size? Most women are not. Oprah dedicated an entire show to finding the right size bra.
8 out of 10 women are wearing the wrong size bra! The right sized bra can eliminate sagging, it can make you appear slimmer and take years off your looks. Almost every woman is wearing a bra that is too large in the band and too small in the cup.
How can you tell if your bra is the right size? Your breasts should not pop over (a.k.a. the four boobs look). They should fill the cup. Don’t get caught up in, or obsess over, cup size. Your band is too big if it rides up in the back or causes your straps to slip off your shoulders.
Where to wear your bra. The ideal position for your breasts is halfway between your shoulders and elbows, and level front to back. If you have the dreaded back fat, you might think your bra is too tight, but you're wrong – it’s too big. Wearing the bra lower on your back with a smaller band size will eliminate the back fat.
Get a proper fitting. On Saturday, February 20, 2010 Fashion Bug will be offering a "free bra fitting" for women in their stores. Athena's has partnered with several Fashion Bug locations across New England because every woman should have the right bra and Athena's Cup wants all the old ones.
Currently the Athena's Cup has collected nearly 10,000 bras in an effort to break the Guinness World Record™ for the longest bra chain. The current record of 166,625 bras was set in August 2009 in Austraila. They have also raised over $13,000.00 in donations for breast cancer research.
Get a free fitting and buy a new bra that fits you right., and get a second one half off, because you really do need more than one. Don't forget to bring all your old bras that are the wrong size to any Fashion Bug location to donate to the Athena's Cup. You can even write a loved one's name or a message of hope inside the bra.
