Seriously, ladies ...

I do hope no-one has been deterred by my tales about being fitted for a bra. You really should be if you haven't been. (Just re-read this. What I mean is that you should be fitted not deterred!)

As a devotee of Trinny and Suzannah, I swear by their maxim - and occasionally by George - that a woman's most important possession is her bra. (Did they say that? Or did I make it up? If the latter, put it down to dramatic licence.)

It's a well-known fact that many women are still wearing the wrong size bra, with the most common fault being having a size too big and a cup too small. And, let me tell you, I was that woman - until I saw the light, sister (Can you hear me proclaiming in a loud American voice?) Mah cup did truly runneth over. (Okay, cut the American evangelist.)

Being properly fitted can change your life so go get fitted. Think of it as being like a cervical examination: embarrassing but vital. You can always talk about the weather.

Admittedly if you're on the larger size, most modern fashion isn't designed for you, and men will occasionally talk to your cleavage but that's their problem.

Take pleasure in your body! It's the only one you've got; you might as well make the most of it. As Leslie said in her comment to a previous post: if you've got it, flaunt it!

I did read somewhere that even smaller women with B or C cups should really be fitted. It is on my list of things to do ...I have yet to find a bra I like and I am not that big.....what's a girl to do? go get fitted!!!

My daughter went for her first proper bra fitting the other day... big day for a 12 year old girl.

My wife keeps changing size - I think she is a D cup now

This whole blog has become a massive education to a dumb guy like me.... :-) Thanks

You have cheered me up, Liz!

Liz, if you keep posting on this topic I may not be able to read your blog any longer as my company's security system may block it as a porn site! lol

Liz said...

Yes, neva, go girl! It really does make a difference!

cherrypie, men are men; what can i say?

Brilliant accent, leslie.

furtheron, my pleasure.

Pat, I'm glad.

Deejay, Daughter is worried that my posts might be attracting the wrong sort of visitors ...

I'm telling you, it is money well-spent. The day I walked into Intimacies in Atlanta and got fitted for a bra was one of those turning-point days. I mean it. Looked like I'd lost 10 pounds, just like that. And thank goodness there's an Intimacies in New York (they have all my info in a database - makes it easy). I bop in once a year and spring for a couple more really good bras.

And I'll refrain from saying it's an uplifting experience. Oops. Too late.

By the way, my security word on this is . . . wait for it . . . "ffhuukupp" Hm.
