I just want to urge the reader to treat herself right. Your boobs have been through a lot, if you are a birth mother. Make sure you’re not wearing bras that fit an imaginary image of yourself – one that has a different body.

How do you know which ones to toss? The uncomfortable ones, the ones with broken bits, and any that aren’t doing their job properly. Read my Q and A with a (male!) bra expert to learn more.
