I read sewing blogs (my regained passion) and I always come across the same advice: get a good bra, one that fits, elevates and makes what a good bra is supposed to do. Well, I think always “duh” but when I look in my drawers I don’t like what I see (too big, too small, padded bras that put the 50’s bullets to shame and the only bra that actually fits it’s long past it’s due date).
Now, I know that a trip to a well stocked shop is a must and that I must try 1,000 models and cups before I can find the right one. Asking specialized advice at the shop is not an option, since the 20-year-old girls attending seem to have even less experience than I do. So, my question is: What exactly is a good bra, what should I be focusing on when shopping, how do I recognize it? Mind you, I’m not asking for brands or types, I know every woman has a different bust, but a bit of guidance would be nice.
