While you’ve probably been wearing a bra since you were in middle school, the cold hard truth is that you have probably been wearing the wrong bra. In fact, seventy-percent of American women are wearing the wrong bra. And believe me, it shows.
Every day, I walk the halls of Capitol Hill and am confronted by drooping breasts, breasts that are to close together, straps that fall down, and the worst sin of all, bras that augment back fat. Your underpinnings are supposed to help the girls stand at attention, but too many of them are falling down on the job. Some of you are even wearing bras that are five sizes too small. Thus, it’s time for an intervention.
Recently, my favorite lingerie shop, Coup de Foudre (roughly translated from the French to mean goodbye sagging mammaries), added a new feature to their website that allows you to book a free 30-minute bra makeover with one of Coup de Foudre’s specialists. If you’ve ever seen the Oprah show segment where the Bra Whisperer coaxes women into the proper underpinnings and miraculously changes their body shape, you should know that this experience will be similarly life changing.
Plus, the owner is French and who knows lacy under things better than the French?
If you’re modest or don’t live in D.C., the Coup de Foudre website has plenty of helpful tips on how to find the perfect bra for you. These include a perfect fit checklist and a handy calculator that will help you select the perfect size for you. There’s also a description of how the perfect bra should fit (ie the straps should not slip and the band shouldn’t cut into the skin).
Some people were put on this Earth to do great things, Valerie was put on this Earth to ensure that women can hold their heads and their breasts up high. So book your 30-minute bra fitting today, and treat yourself to a bra that you can proud to wear.
