How to Fit a Bra, Via Warsaw

Backstory: My family is Polish and my mom is currently spending a few months in Warsaw. We email back and forth daily, and the above email came just the other day with the word “cyce” (boobs, in Polish) in the subject heading. I translated this little jewel from Polish for your reading pleasure.

I watched a program about how to select bras. A bra should be sufficiently tight around your bust such that the side panels and metal supports fall under your armpits and don’t bisect your breast, creating folds under your armpits (those folds that frazzle us in dressing rooms). When you put a bra on you should use your hand to scoop up all the excess skin from under your armpits and into the cup of the bra (this is our “lost” bust). Boobs become a size larger and the folds under your armpits disappear. I checked, and all my bras are now too small.

Love, Mom
