80% of women today wear bras that are the wrong size for them. Are you one of those 80%? Is your number, or band size, correct? What about your letter or cup size? While it’s best to buy your bra with the help of a bra-fit specialist, they’re often not available in stores and intimate apparel departments. Chances are that you bought your bra on your own and are just not sure whether it fits the way it’s supposed to.

Not to worry. With the help of a mirror, there are some easy ways you can determine on your own whether you’re wearing the wrong size.

An X-ray shows one of the patients in the study with electrodes all over their brain
Scientists believe they have found a way to read people’s minds in what could be the first step towards helping brain-damaged patients who cannot speak.
US researchers used a computer program to decode brain activity and put it into words using a form of electronic telepathy.
Experts described the breakthrough, unveiled in the journal Public Library of Science Biology, as “remarkable” and believe it could ultimately be possible to decipher people’s thoughts.
Researchers at the University of California in Berkeley used the programme to predict what spoken words volunteers had listened to by analyzing their brain activity.
Previous research has shown imagined words activate similar brain areas as words that are said aloud, raising hopes they can also be uncovered by “reading” brain waves.

Ideas about motivation are changing as new research teases out some of the key elements.
