5 Bra Fit Tips To Look Ten Years Younger (And 10 pounds slimmer)

I’m often asked if I know of any secret weapons for looking younger.  Is there a special face cream or some cool, new fashion trend that women over 40 need to be wearing?  The answer is surprisingly simple, and can make an instant difference. Update your bra!

Picture a tired, frumpy- looking woman, and I guarantee that a saggy bustline instantly comes to mind. When you are hanging low, spilling out of the sides of your bra, or you’ve got a matronly uni boob going on, you look old lady.

Every morning most of us put on our bra without much thought.  But have you really looked in the mirror lately?  Are things going south?  If so, it’s time to update your bra!

Here are 7 tips to make sure you are wearing the right bra:

  4. Are you wearing the right size bra?  You should not be spilling out of your cups or lost in them.
