7 out of 10 wearing wrong bra size

SEVEN out of 10 women are wearing the wrong bra size, according to Triumph International.

Locals can rectify the situation by having a bra-styling session with a properly trained fitter at Anne’s Irresistible Lingerie in Maryborough on Friday.

Women would also have the opportunity to trade in their old bras and receive a 25 per cent discount on new Triumph bras.

Triumph product development manager Shirley Jones said wearing the wrong sized bra could lead to discomfort, sagging breasts and back pain.

She said it was vital for women to have their bra size checked after experiencing any significant changes to their size or shape.

“Pregnancy, weight loss or gain, surgery and increase in sporting activity are just some of the situations when women may find their bras no longer fit as well,” Ms Jones said.

“A fitting only takes five minutes and the difference it can make to your levels of comfort and support not to mention the look of your outerwear is astounding.

“A Triumph-trained bra expert will help find the right bra for a customer’s age, shape and life-style.”

She added that all good-quality traded bras would be donated to third-world countries.

For more details on the fitting day, which will run from 9am until 3pm on Friday, phone Anne’s Irresistible Lingerie in Kent Street on 4123 4456.
