What are they? Well, unless you’re Madonna, Lady Gaga or Eva Herzigova they’re usually concealed. You can 'cross your heart' with them. They can be minimising or maximising, and they are a staple part of most womens' wardrobes. They are humble bras!
Women are constantly told that many of them are wearing the wrong size bra, and that an ill-fitting bra can do more harm than good.
Well with that in mind, one Cork woman has developed a new invention that allows women to accurately measure their own bra size in the privacy of their own homes, if they so wish.
Wendy Moore is the owner of La Femme Lingerie Experts in Douglas in Cork, and the inventor of the Maureen Personal Bra Fitter.
Wendy's Maureen measuring tape "makes everything more straightforward and we have found accuracy rates of between 90-97%". It is available on www.lafemmelingerieexperts.com for €13. Brenda asked one of our Mooney listeners, Ann-Marie English, to road test Maureen for us!
For more information about the Maureen, visit www.maureenpbf.com.
If you have questions for Wendy about your bras, you can text them to 51551 or e-mail email@example.com, as she joins us live in studio this afternoon!
The bra brands that Wendy recommends are Ulla Lingerie and Anita Lingerie.
