Studies say that as many as 80% of women may be wearing the wrong bra size – yikes! I’m of the opinion that a proper bra fitting is one of the best things any woman can do for herself. A quality bra that fits has a huge impact on not only the way clothes fit but also on your physical comfort. Unfortunately, much like a good man, a good bra is hard to find.
Luckily, plenty of brave ladies have taken up the measuring tape of justice and dedicated themselves to the art of the perfect bra. One of them is Karen of The Blackberry Belle. When I asked Karen for her boob credentials, she said:
I was fitted at a local store back in 2010 and fell in love with the difference a properly fitted bra could make – not just for how I felt, but looked in clothes! For over three years, I worked at a local fitting salon in Louisiana. I’ve helped hundreds (if not thousands) women. I’ve helped women (including trans women) of all sizes, shapes, and ages feel better not just about their breasts, but about their bodies. I’m no longer a fitter, but I am no less passionate about bras and bra fitting!
That’s more than good enough for me! Karen was gracious enough to answer some of my questions about bras, bra fitting, and retro lingerie. Learn where to find a good bra, what everyone should know about bras, and what the one piece every pinup should have in her lingerie drawer is after the jump!
