This is something I really do have a problem with. Finding someone who Knows how to measure you properly. It is a tough one. Every retailer that sells Bras should make sure they have an expert on board to do this job. The Cost of a good Bra requires the help of someone who knows what they are doing. That’s my opinion anyway. I don’t know how many bras I have bought and never worn as I hate the fit or the look of them. It is a plus for the second-hand clothing stores as that is where they go. I do not waste space with an ugly uncomfortable bra.
A study conducted by the Swiss lingerie company Triumph, approximately 64 percent of women are wearing the wrong bra size.
Here is some helpful advice on this matter.
- Choose Support Over Comfort
Expert and owner of Linda’s Bra Salons Linda Becker said it’s important to choose support over perceived comfort when shopping for bras. Bra support should come from the band, not the straps. They should fit snuggly across your back, not tight so you have the roll over look.
2. Never Assume Your Size, Even When Measured
Reevaluate your size at least once a year. Remember your body changes every year. Cup and band sizes aren’t the same across all brands. Don’t worry about the size, care about how it feels and fits. The perfect fit is really about trial and error until you find the best that suits you. A good consultant will help you do that.
3. Buy New Bras Every Nine Months — At Least
According to Glamour’s Executive Fashion Editor Suze Yalof Schwartz. We should be replacing our bras every nine months. If you keep them for longer, Schwartz says they’ll lose their elasticity, and therefore their effectiveness.
4. The Hooks Are There For A Reason
Always try on your bra with the least tight band setting. Remember you will use the rest of the hook settings as the bra ages and loses its stretch.
5. Go For The Best Cup Shape For Your Body
New York-based style blogger and YouTuber Jalisa reminded like in clothing there are different Bra cuts and breast shapes. A Demi works great for the small busted girl where a full coverage bra suits the larger busted figures as they do not need the padding. Again it is trial and error and a patient polite consultant.
6. Scrutinize The Fit
To know what to look for in a well-fitting bra is so important. Check that the bra cups lie smooth with no wrinkles, that the center of the bra lies flat against the breast bone, and that the back of the bra is even with the front (instead of hiking up in the middle). Does not do these 3 things then keep looking and trying on.
7. It Pays To Pay More
Higher quality the bra materials, the better the bra will be at supporting us. That is going to mean you are going to have to pay more. Remember a high quality bra is going to be well constructed and fit better than the cheaper ones. Remember they are going to have to support the motion and the weight of those ‘Boobies’. TJ’s and Marshall’s have been suggested for purchasing high quality brands. Be prepared to be spending the day shopping for the perfect bra and you will never regret it. It will make all the difference to the look of your outfit and your shape.
This is ingenious! Not everyones cup of tea but you have to admit it is very clever. A great deal of thought of design has gone into this with remarkable results.
Take a look and I am sure you will agree especially if you are the outdoor type or think out of the box.
Texting while driving is one of my pet peeves . As a Motorcycle rider I see it all the time. Coffee cup in one hand, texting with the other and steering with their knees. I know because I can see in the window as I pass them.
They get a shout out from me as I pass.
Signs that someone is on their phone is, erratic speed, they move from one side of the lane to another and often into the next lane, they do not stop in time and often rear ending the car in front. I have seen it all

Bit hard to concentrate on this article at the moment as one eye is on the TV ESPN as Australia is about to Play soccer against the Netherlands for the World Cup. There is probably not much of a chance beating Netherlands as they are an experienced team where I believe our Australian team is quite young.
I spent 4 days in Dallas catching up with my niece and her partner who were on their way to the World Cup. I am expecting to see them on TV all dressed up in support of their respective team. There will be a conflict of interest here as Donna is an Australian and Franny is from the Netherlands.
Anyway this is how the subject of Airport Security becomes an issue on my way back from Dallas. For the first time in all the traveling that I have done I got the green light and was given a PreCheck entry through security. Fantastic, I did not have to take my shoes off, no taking out iPad and laptop or bags of cosmetics out of my bag, remove belts and coats. The bag went through the X-ray machine and I just walked through the X-ray machine for body check and away I went. So quick so easy.
It just so happens I was reading in the AARP bulletin and there was an article about the fact that if you make an application to the TSA this can happen to you every time you travel.
TSA is expanding its time-saving Pre Check program. This allows certain airline passengers to use separate security lanes where they don’t need to take all the stuff off and out of their bags.
Now available through nine major airlines and at nearly 120 U.S. Airports, PreCheck is being offered to people who apply as well as to randomly selected passengers ( They will have been checked when making a reservation against a terrorist watch list).
If you are in the randomly selected group there will be a PreCheck symbol on your boarding pass, which means you are heading to the fast lane.
Before December 2013 PreCheck was available only to certain folks including those wh had already been vetted trough an international program called Global Entry and frequent fliers whom airlines were allowed to invite.
Here is what you need to do to become PreChecked Airline passenger.
1. Apply online (tsa.gov). Pay an $85 fee for the vetting process
2. Make an appointment to get fingerprinted at one of the 300 enrollment centers around the States.
3. Wait eight to 11 days to receive an email with a known Traveler number that is good for five years.
4. Include that number in your profile when you make a reservation. You will usually be flagged as a PreChecked passenger when you fly. You can then enjoy a hassle free security screening
I personally think that it is worth it especially if you travel often
