It’s time to have FUN finding the perfect fit—fashion expert Jené Luciani is here to help.

In 2009, The Bra Book helped countless women find the right bra. Now, Luciani, known as “Dr. Oz’s Bra Guru,” returns with this updated edition of her one-and-only guide to all things underneath.

If 85 percent of women are wearing the wrong bra, what else in their undergarment drawers doesn’t fit as well as it could?

Luciani continues her mission to arm women with the knowledge they need to find the right fashion support. From the best bra for every outfit to important information about bras and breast health from puberty to retirement, from the physics behind bra design to how you can best ensure a proper fit, The Bra Book: Second Edition is still the ultimate resource on bras for women everywhere.

Lucky for us, Jene has expanded the book to include new and updated, yet essential, information from the ever-changing world of intimate apparel. In the era of “smooth is better,” thanks in part to the “Spanx movement,” The Bra Book: Second Edition now features a guide to the often overwhelming world of shapewear and swimsuits. Luciani eliminates confusion with her friendly guidance on finding the perfect fit and even tackles the uncomfortable questions, such as, “What really causes sagging?”

Discover new ways to best flatter your figure—and have fun shopping for that perfect fit. The Bra Book: Second Edition doesn’t just tell women how bras and shapewear work; it shows them how to make those garments work for them!
