Bra fitting in the US is one of those things women do not regularly do. The idea of going to get a fitting ramps up the anxiety levels in a lot of women. We are faced with the idea of being topless in front of a stranger, not a comforting thought. So most women just …

That awkward moment….

When you are between bra sizes. One is too big and the size down is too small. What do you do? Buy the bigger size or the smaller? Does the shape of your breast (or implants) factor into this? Personally I buy the bigger (usually). I don’t want to encourage tissue migration with the smaller …

My first Curvy Kate bra~ Will it Thrill Me?

*Edit* This bra did thrill me, until Curvy Kate announced that their Star in a Bra competition is not open to women with implants.

I wanted to give a visual representation to the war on plus four. Many people do not understand what is wrong with adding four inches to your underbust measurement.  First I want to point out that bra sizing is very subjective.  It is highly individual and what works for one woman may not work for …
