    Numbers = Confusion

    And that's why I don't like math. I went to shop some bras today, in honor of after holiday sales. I got five pairs pretty cheaply, and even renewed my color scheme a a bit: something else than black for change. However, the sizes made me wonder. I have traditionally thought...

    So Many Ways to Measure.

    So far I have found 3 different ways of measuring my size.  I have even been measured by the so called professionals and several have come up with different measurements. I think it all has to do with who it is that is designing bras.  I think that they see women one...

    Back Pain
