According to a September 2006 episode of the The Oprah Winfrey Show, countless American women are in need of a serious "bra intervention." Eighty-five percent of women are wearing the wrong bra. What else don't we know about which one is the right one?

The Bra Book author Jen Luciani--a fashion expert and a go-to guide for beauty advice--once and for all arms women with the knowledge they need to find the right fashion support. From the best bra to wear under every outfit to important information about bras and breast health from puberty to retirement, from the physics behind bra design to how you can best ensure a proper fit, The Bra Book is the source for women everywhere.

Luciani's warm, supportive style guides the reader through a minefield of bra facts, fallacies and faux-pas in chapters like "The Herstory of Bras," "Breast RX," and "Mountains vs. Molehills." Each chapter offers expert advice alongside a plethora of photographs and useful diagrams, witty quotes from real men and women, tons of tips and a tear-out guide to take the confusion out of bra shopping--and put the fun back in. The Bra Book doesn't just tell women how bras work; it shows them how to make their bras work for them!
