AT Home with Lorraine Kelly - April 2011 - (Page 17)
THIS MONTH’S NEWS, ESSENTIAL TIPS AND DIARY DATES…
Eight out of 10 British women are wearing the wrong-sized bra. That’s not such a shock, but what is startling is that the usual way of measuring (involving a tape measure) is obsolete. The ‘round the ribcage and round the bust’ measurements were devised to go up to a D-cup. Now that half of all UK women exceed that size, ditch the tape and use the ﬁve-step approach. Assessing the length of the straps, the shape of the underwire (the wire should press on bone and not breast tissue), the ﬁtting of the back (two ﬁngers placed under the band should feel snug), the ﬁtting of the cup (no double boobs) and whether the front band is in contact with the breastbone (ﬂat against it) will give you the comfort you deserve.
