Millions make a boob on bra size

MILLIONS of women could be wearing the wrong-sized bra because traditional fitting methods do not work, scientists have revealed.

Jenny White, a sports scientist at the University of Portsmouth, has found the “best-fit” approach is better than the old tape-measure way of choosing a bra.

Her study, published in the journal Ergonomics, found that in three-quarters of cases the tape measure led to the wrong size being chosen, contributing to 85 per cent of women in the UK wearing the wrong bra.

The traditional method overestimated the band size in 76 per cent of women and underestimated the cup size in 84 per cent.
