Bras 23 Nov 2009
Why are 80% of us still wearing the wrong size?

Within the past two decades bras have become big news. Retailers now talk about customers having a 'bra wardrobe' containing the average woman's sports bras, fashion bras, T-shirt bras, nude bras, gel bras, sexy bras and more. But despite this wealth of choice an estimated 80% of women are still wearing the wrong sized bra.  Sue Elliott-Nichols visits Rigby and Peller for a fitting.  Jane is joined by Gillian Proctor, principal lecturer and programme leader of the Contour Fashion course at De Montfort University, and beauty editor and Times journalist, Sarah Vine.
