A bra, short for brassiere, is a form-fitting undergarment suspender designed to support or cover the wearer’s breasts.
Swimsuits, camisoles and backless dresses started to have built-in breast support.
Bras are complex garments made of many parts.
Most come in 36 sizes; standards and methods of measurement vary widely.
Up to 85% of women may be wearing the wrong size.
