A bra (/brɑː/) or brassiere (/brəˈzɪər/) is a form-fitting undergarment designed to support a woman's breasts. Swimsuits, camisoles and backless dresses may be made with built-in support.

Most come in 36 sizes; standards and methods of measurement vary widely and up to 85 percent of women may be wearing the wrong size.[1][2] The world's best-selling bra, as of 2005, was said to be the full-cup "Doreen" by Triumph International in size 36D.[1] The term brassiere was used by the Evening Herald in Syracuse, New York, in 1893.[3] It gained wider acceptance in 1904 when the DeBevoise Company used it in their advertising copy—although the word is actually Norman French for a child's undershirt. In French, it is called a soutien-gorge (literally, "breast-supporter").[4] ... Find out more →
