Abracadabra, It’s The Bra Book!
Happy Three Kings’ Day!
Today, I want to talk to you gals about a book that’s pure genius: The Bra Book. I know Oprah and Tyra have both gone on massive tirades about how most women are wearing the wrong bra — but, until now, there was no book women could look to as a reference point. Jené Luciani’s new release will school you on the ABCs of over-the-shoulder boulder holders, providing a brief history of bras, including an alphabetized and illustrated breakdown of bra style types (from balconette to demi bra, racerback, bandeau bra, and more), advising you on what bra to wear under what type of garment, and more.
The chapter on determining your bra size is particularly useful. You might think determining your bra size is as simple as pulling out a tape measure — but you’d be dead wrong. For example, the right way to determine your band size does involve measuring the circumference of your ribcage below your breasts, rounding up to an even number of inches, and then adding 2 inches to this figure. Now here’s the interesting part: the cup size for bras is determined in relation to the band size, so you may be able to go up a band size and down a cup size when in need. Luciani even advises you on how to properly put on your bra — apparently, it’ best to bend over as you slip into the undergarment. Who knew, right?
The right bra makes all the difference in the world, so I really do recommend you grab a copy of The Bra Book and check out all the tips.
