Women’s bodies change as they get older. The sizes they wore in high school or early adulthood might no longer fit because of childbirth, weight gain or loss and aging. One area that might suffer from lack of regular attention is proper bra sizing. Many women believe they stay the same size as they get older. Women who don’t buy bras in the correct size make themselves suffer needlessly because they stuff themselves into bras that are too small. They make themselves look unattractive because they literally are spilling out of their bras.
