Ran across this great article by Nina Roberts of the New York Observer, just right after fitted a customer for a bra and I swear she was bright red when I informed her that the top she wanted did not fit as a result of a poorly fitting bra.
One bra purchase later - she just has to get used to the idea that her breasts will come into the room before her from now on. I am used to women buying bras and then strategically placing shawls etc.
Nina Roberts writes:
Amid the endless racks of protruding breast cups and in the Victoria’s Secret store on lower Fifth Avenue, saleswomen Chrystal Toppin explained: “These bras hide the nipples. It is a trend. A lot of women don’t want to protrude and attract the wrong kind of attention.”
