*Bra Matrix*

Does any of the below apply to you ?

* You adjust your bra several times during day
* Your breasts sway, jump and jiggle when you walk, or go down the stairs
* Your bra feels uncomfortable, it's a relief to take it off
* You have small breasts, and wear push-up or padded bras to make them look better
* You have big breasts, and your bras look like beige tents
* Even when wearing a bra, your breasts sag
* You have rolls of fat around your armpits, or back
* Your bra straps cut into the skin and feel uncomfortable, but you need to wear them tight to get support.
If you answered YES to one or more of the above, your bra does not fit well.

Don't do this to yourself

A well-fitting bra:

* Feels like you are wearing nothing at all. In fact, you may be reluctant to take it off at night.
* Gives you a beautiful shape of breasts, without padding, no matter what your size or age.
* Holds your breasts firmly, and does not let them sway or bounce.
* Is beautiful and sexy, even if it's a very large size.
* Does not budge from it's place, even when you do jumping jacks.
