Did you know that 8 out of 10 women wear the wrong size bra? Did you also know that if you gain between 5-7 pounds, your bra size will change. Or how about on average a woman owns 27 bras but wears only 3 on a regular basis?

Sad to say, I am that woman. Wacoal, one of the leading brands in women's intimate apparel had a press preview yesterday and it was an eye opening experience for me. For the longest, I've been thinking I was a 34A, and not to say I was proud, I just thought I was. Believe me, when I went from a 32A to a 34A I thought I was really a grown up. Don't laugh, this blog is suppose to be therapeutic for me! The amazing part of the event was that you had a fit specialist on site who took my measurements and told me I was actually a 34B and not a 34A. It was a lot to take in, I mean I feel like a real woman. Finally, I have stepped up to the major leagues. In addition to sizing, wardrobe, activity and lifestyle have different bra types. So for all the ladies rocking the padded bra at the gym, or the lace demi under a tight tee, stop right now! Liz Smith, Wacoal's Bra Expert says that there are actually 8 bras every woman must own. Check out the list below and make sure to look for Wacoal's flirtier line b.tempted at major department stores. It's affordable, sexy and well fitting.
