Something Educational: Strapless Bra Fitting Guide | Video Tutorial by Mr. Bra

This probably won't be of any interest to my readers who are not Gyno-Americans. I am only passing it on here because of it's obvious educational value. I realize that it is, for a video, long at more than 15 minutes, so feel free to stop watching whenever it ceases to interest you.

"Fitting a bra. It's an art. It's taken me years to fit a bra. Not an easy task."

I'm adept at getting them off, why in hell would I be interested in putting them ON!

Thank You Mr. Vanderleun!I have found my new vocation.

This explains why all of Big Fur's newest contributors to IOTW home page are females!

Where are parts one, two, and three. Inquiring minds and all.

The best bra fitting I ever had was at Charleston's lovely Bits of Lace.

There's a runway video there that may be educational.

I watched the whole thing! I think that there was some guy in the picture; he may have even said something. I'm not sure. I'll watch it again to find out ... Still not able to determine if the other person was talking ... Watching it again ...

I wonder (no pun intended) if he ever needs help ... I would be delighted to lend a hand.

A good bra is built the same way a good bridge is built. There are multiple considerations: load bearing, weight, sway, span, and suspension---to name a few. If you are really lucky, it will be beautiful, too.

Dang. Now I have the theme song going through my head . . .

I never knew that cup size is the difference of those two measurements. I question the second measurement technique. He measured with her already wearing a bra. Assume that it was too small and her breasts were being "pancaked", that would affect the measurement. It seems to me that it would be better to take that measurement with her bra-less on all fours, ie. breasts unconstrained and not drooping with gravity. Obviously this would not be on a video. I agree with Deborah, bra design is engineering with the added constraint of comfort.

He is a professional! God bless him! The mastectomy bra sign on the mirror is a bit of a downer.

As Bob hope would have said (or sang, even), "Thanks for the mammaries."

Now, forgive me, I must move on to udder things.

"so feel free to stop watching whenever it ceases to interest you."

Umm...what? Was something said?

(BTW - is that Trooper York from Althouse?)

Racks for Racks?

And, with Deborah, I am agreeing that this is a type of civil engineering. And I think it should be studied at all of our finest institutes, with the 'quick release' feature put on a 'crash development' program.

Why do I feel like I just went for a thirty minute walk?

I sense the largest class-action lawsuit in America against the Amalgamated Federation of High School Guidance Counselors (SEIU). Why was I not told about such a job? I want an answer!
