  Bras 15 September 2004  
Does yours let you down?

A Which? survey out this month found that high street bra-fitting services just don't measure up. Only 1 in 12 bras sold to their researchers by bra-fitting services on the high street were actually a good fit. 

Birna Helgadottir  reports on what happened when she went along to be fitted out in three high street stores.

Stylist, Jay Hunt and Dee Parker, lecturer in Contour Fashion at De Montfort University, the only degree course of its kind, talk to Jenni about what to look for when buying a bra and why there's such a variation in each size.
