While I wasn't expecting to be completely blown away by 'ah ha' revelations, I found little that was new in this book. I was disappointed that it contained much content recycled from other sources, and a lot of 'self advertizement' for the author's own company (I'm sure they have wonderful products, and I will check them out, but still...)

I haven't seen the physical book but it was obvious by the seemingly haphazard formatting that it wasn't reformatted for electronic consumption (at least on a Kindle). Side panels, tips and tricks, images and associated descriptions were hard to follow. And the constant switching from left aligned to centered, initially thought to be showing different sections, just ended up appearing to be random. Missing spaces, typos, truncated text all detracted from a smooth reading experience. Even after adjusting my reading font size to a smaller size (which improved a few things but of course made it harder for me to read), it just wasn't worth it.

The scary thing about this is I happened upon the book as a result of watching an episode of "Mad Fashion" which was about the author having a grand launch party for the electronic release of this book! I thought that implied some effort to actually make an electronic rendition.

All I can say is that it was barely worth the $3.00. If you want this book, I suggest you look at the physical version.
Honestly, I wasn't sure what to expect from this book but I was pleasantly surprised! There is a ton of really good information on breast type, bra styles, fit and a bunch of other stuff...highly recommend this to anyone who is struggling with knowing exactly what to really be looking for in a bra, especially if you have had body changes for whatever reason (pregnancy, surgery, etc.)
Very extensive information. Great information for my Bra fitter training.
Bought this for my daughter who is going through that time in her life where she doesn't understand what she's going through
I really needed this info like 20 years ago!
The book was a fun read, taught a few things I didn't know about my girls, how to take care of them and feel better naked actually. Now when I go shopping I carve out an alloted time specifically for this important piece..Go ahead read it, it's fun..you'll like it :-)
Nothing new in this book. Go to a good dept store (think the expensive one that starts with N and ends with "strom" and get a good fitting. you'll pay extra, but it'll be worth it.
I did not find this book was the one I had been looking for. While it covered some fitting issues, I had hopes for a more broad spectrum of fitting issues. I learned more just on line.
