You Can't Afford A Bad Fitting Bra

Our grandmothers may have had better fitting bras than we do today, for a myriad of reasons. I recently spoke with bra coach Ali Cudby and got the scoop. Here's a bit from part two of the interview:

In Chapter Two, in Once Upon A Time, When Fit Was A Fairy Tale, you discuss the fairy tale of fit:
Bra fitting can be confusing because there are so many pieces to literally fit together, and it’s not something most American women are taught — not at home, in school, or anywhere else. There’s no real mechanism for that education. It’s not taught in high school health classes. Many mothers overlook the chance to help their daughters get fit correctly, perhaps because they never experienced the benefits of the right fit themselves.
So poor bra fit is literally passed down through the generations!
There's lots more to learn, including how improper bra fit can cause health problems, how you waste money buying bad bras and more -- and thankfully Ali's put it all in a book for us: Busted! The FabFoundations Guide To Bras That Fit, Flatter and Feel Fantastic. Along with another interview, A Slip Of A Girl is giving away five signed copies of the book -- so go enter!
