Every Woman should Know – How To Buy The Best Bra For You

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.

  1. 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.

???????????????????????????????????????????

You probably already know this but some  don’t. Research by European Journal of Applied Physiology shows that a hard workout can be salve for achy joints. It has shown that those with rheumatoid arthritis or osteoarthritis that sweated through 30 minutes of indoor cycling intervals twice a week slashed indicators of the pain causing inflammation in their blood by an average of nearly 40% after 10 weeks. They also lost weight and body fat and their stamina also improved. High intensity training releases a hormone that helps convert unhealthy white fat to calorie burning brown fat.
The University of California have also discovered a molecular switch capable of converting unhealthy white fat into healthy, energy-burning brown fat in mice. Drugs that flip this switch rapidly reduced obesity and diabetes risk factors in mice fed a high fat diet.
For those who find it impossible to exercise and are overweight this drug of the future may be the answer for them.
For me fresh air, good music and exercise is the answer.

 

 

phosphoric

2. If you are eating food or having drinks with the an ingredient that has the prefix ‘Phos’  such as phosphoric acid then you should reduce the amount of intake.   According to the American Journal of Kidney diseases you should make an effort to read labels and aim to reduce the amount of this mineral in your diet. (It is used as a preservative and a flavoring agent)

They believe some phosphorous is necessary but too much can harm your bones, heart, and kidneys.

The Human Body is a treasure trove of mysteries. Did You Know:-

Lung_nodule

1. The human lungs contain approximately 2,400 kilometers (1,500 mi) of airways and 300 to 500 million hollow cavities, having a total surface area of about 70 square meters, roughly the same area as one side of a tennis court. Furthermore, if all of the capillaries that surround the lung cavities were unwound and laid end to end, they would extend for about 992 kilometers. Also, your left lung is smaller than your right lung to make room for your heart.

tickling

2. It’s not possible to tickle yourself. This is because when you attempt to tickle yourself you are totally aware of the exact time and manner in which the tickling will occur, unlike when someone else tickles you.

A Woman With Guts – Heritage Foundation Panelist on Radical Islam

In my opinion that woman was refreshing. The fact that she was speaking her mind with no B…S. .. and seemed to have the ‘facts’ on this subject was impressive. The young lady who began this conversation with the question, gave this woman the opportunity to enlighten us all, I believe.

You may totally disagree and that is your right just as it is her right to speak her mind and give you ‘Her’ honest opinion. ‘Freedom of Speech’ is a Constitutional right that is slowly being eroded. ‘Political correctness’ is making us weaker and foolish, in my opinion.

Space Saver And Healthy As Well

I am not sure where you would get the planter boxes from. I suspect Home Depot or maybe Lowe’s. One I did find that had good wooden garden planters is http://www.gardeners.com.
If you have a handyman or woman in the household they might be able to build something similar to these pictures. Anyway if you have limited space they are a great idea.
I would suggest you built two and for one year fill one with composted household scraps and then the other one after the growing season, the following year, then you would always have clean healthy food.

Just sayin.

Food Pyramids maximize space to grow food. Apart from being very practical they are beautiful to look at.
