Today is day 6 of TEEN WEEK 2013 and we are tackling the subject of your boobs, your bra and what is considered ‘business’ dress. Right now-your business is going to school and possibly interviewing and working.
There are a few parts to this post and each one is important: 1) when is cleavage appropriate 2)how to get fitted for a bra 3) the free giveaway 4)time to rock! Let’s get started:
In Phoenix Arizona I have served several years as a judge for the high school DECA competitions. I love to hear the business and marketing plans the teens have created. I am also stunned by how many young girls walk into a state level competition wearing low cut blouses, with push up bras and boobs wagging.
Forget the short hemline-myself and the male judges turn our heads to avoid seeing the competitor’s breasts. This is not one girl I’m talking about-it’s many. How am I suppose to see and hear her work when her skimpy attire is screaming? My heart breaks at the thought that no one took the time to teach this girl my motto : “you never get a second chance to make a first impression-so make the first count!”
Here is a photo of what is considered good for work, business, interviews and meeting a moment with respect intact! The second photo is what not to wear!
Appropriate dress for interviews, work and in some cases school,
Not appropriate ever-in any situation!
Now, let’s talk about starting to wear a bra, needing to find the right fit (you should get fitted yearly!) and which bra is right for you. Below is some information I got from the website “First Bra for Teens”-and it’s really worth a click over to read the article in it’s entirety and see the photo samples of bras available.
Find Out Your Bra Size
choosing your first bra, make sure that you know your correct size.
Frequent bra fittings are important during your teen years, when your
body is growing, especially if your bra starts fitting in a weird or
might feel shy about your growing breasts and not want other people
talking about them, looking at them, and measuring them. But it’s wise
to get measured so to find out your correct bra size.
can get a professional fitter at a store to help you, or you can do it
yourself at home. Keep in mind, the measurement you come up with is a
just rough idea. Every body is a little different, so you’ll need to try
on lots of bras to find the perfect fit for you.
1: Run a soft tape measure at the narrowest point just under your
breasts, all the way around your back and rib cage. The tape measure
should rest flat on your skin and lie straight across your back – not so
tight that it digs in, but not so loose that it sags down in back.
Make a note of this measurement. (Round up if the number is uneven.) That’s your band size.
2: To measure cup size, take the tape measure around your body across
the fullest part of your breasts. Write this number down and subtract
your band size measurement from it. The difference between the numbers
will tell you your cup size. If the difference between the two numbers
is less than 1 inch, your cup size is AA. If the difference is 1 inch,
your cup size is A; 2 inches, you’re a B; 3 inches you’re a C, and so
the number and letter together, and that’s your bra size range. For
example, if your cup measurement was 33 and your chest measurement was
32, that’s a 1-inch difference. Your bra size will be 32A or close to
in mind, most bras have adjustable hooks and eyes, so you can adjust
the tightness. A new bra should fasten on the loosest set of hooks so
that you can adjust it as a bra stretches out or as you grow and
Fitting yourself can seem a little complicated, so we made some easy fit guides
with you in mind. We also have helpful, friendly customer service reps
who can help you fit yourself from over the phone at 1.866.352.4494.
Step 3: Be sure to try on lots and lots of different bras, in different styles and variations of sizes. Sister sizes
are equivalent sizes with either larger or smaller cups/bands. It’s
great to try a sister size if a bra fits pretty well but is maybe a
little bit off. For example, if you’re trying a 34C and it’s a little
bit too big in the band, you can try a 32D, one of the sister sizes.
This is a good guideline to find the exact right fit!

“It’s too cold outside for a run,” “the gym is too crowded,” “I’ll do it tomorrow.” We all know these oh-so-familar excuses for not working out. Sure, it’s so much easier to plop down on the couch after a long day than to lace up those sneakers. But there is finally hope for even the laziest of the lazy gals. We talked to personal trainers, Pilates instructors, and physical therapists who revealed various exercises that can be done on your very own sofa.
