Gretta's Got It: Bras
Its a woman's most basic undergarment, something she wears every day, but many of us can't seem to find the right fit when it comes to bras. Our style expert is breaking it down for us Gretta's Got It.
WSVN -- Gretta Monahan: "Ladies, now hear this, that bra that you're wearing right now is probably the wrong one, so we are going to get rid of that bad bra because it's time to get one that's fit for a queen."
Gretta Monahan: "Susan Nethero has committed her life to giving women a boost."
Gretta Monahan: "She trained under the queen of England's bra fitter and has help lift the likes of Oprah and former supermodel Veronica Webb."
Gretta Monahan "Just like those jeans from high school, your bra size changes too."
Gretta Monahan: "Susan says so many women make the mistake of wearing bras that are stretched out, worn out, or just wrong."
Susan Nethero: "Six times, seven times in a woman's life she'll either need a different size or a different shape of bra."
Gretta Monahan: "The reasons are everything from getting older, losing or gaining weight, or the biggie, having a baby."
Gretta Monahan: "Vanessa has always worn a 36C, but today she is learning its just too loose."
Susan Nethero: "Your bra is riding up your back and giving you back fat, we don't want that to happen. Plus, am sure that through out the day this is falling down. What we are going to do is get this lifted right here and have this fitted"
Gretta Monahan: "Your bust should be lifted and centered midway between your shoulder and your elbow. Vanessas true size, one she never knew was available."
Vanessa: "I love it its so comfortable."
Susan Nethero: "You have gone from a 36C to a 32E. What we are seeing now is your bra is not shifting on your body and you are getting breast support, we are not sagging any more. The beautiful sweet heart gives a nice definition."
Gretta Monahan: "Side by side, the difference is unmistakable."
Susan Nethero: "A lot of people think that A to D cup are the only cup sizes there are out there."
Gretta Monahan: "So once you have the right fit, it's time to stock up."
Gretta Monahan: "Just like a closet full of great clothes, build a bra wardrobe that's top shelf or should I say top drawer."
Susan Nethero: "Start with three and then work your way into your wardrobe. Ideally, seven to ten bras would be the best."
Gretta Monahan: "The basic bra styles every gal needs in her collection: Strapless and or convertible, a T-shirt, a cleavage, a classic lace and of course, everyone needs one that's sexy. Different styles work with different outfits so always give them a road test with your clothes first."
Gretta Monahan "So now that we know how to accentuate your assets, you can join me and burn that old bra, but three tips to make the bras last. One: Always wash your bras in lingerie wash. Two: Never put them in the dryer. Three: Don't be afraid to tailor. Am Gretta for Gretta's Got It."
