You’ve Been Wearing Bras All Wrong
The lowdown: Chances are, if your bra makes your boobs look a bit lumpy or doesn’t exactly hold ’em where you want ’em to be, you’re wearing the wrong size. Triumph, a lingerie company, launched its “Stand Up For Fit” campaign earlier this year to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the bra. The company conducted a survey of 10,000 women, revealing that over 76% of women knew they wear the wrong bra size! As a response, the campaign aims to fit 100,000 women with their perfect bra in 2014.
Your challenge: Be kind to the body you’ve got, and put it in clothes that suit it! It’s certainly cool to pursue healthy eating habits and fitness, but feel free to focus on finding the right garments that compliment your size, whatever it is, starting with your underwear.
