Confused about bra fitting? Here's the perfect fit checklist
"You're a smart person. Since you'll be wearing the bras, you're better
off taking a few minutes to understand what a perfect fitting bra should look
and feel like, and recognize the signs if your bra is the wrong size for you."
Although it's sometimes immediately obvious that a bra you're trying on doesn't fit right, there are less obvious signs that a bra is doing absolutely nothing for your shape, or worse, is doing lots of things wrong.
