Purpose: Demonstrate how to properly fit for a bra
Thesis Statement: Wearing the correct size bra maintains breast health and can improve your appearance. Good Morning Ladies and Gents! As you may know, my name is Janell, and I am pleased to talk with you about a topic that is near and dear to my heart: Bra Fitting! This may not pertain to the gentlemen here today but it is useful information that you could pass along to the women in your life.

Before concluding my demonstration I would like review a couple things we have learned today. We’ve learned there are a large percentage of women who are wearing the incorrect size bra. The best way to cure this is to get fitted! It only takes a few minutes and there are many department stores that offer the service free of charge. We have also learned that bra’s should be comfortable and feel as though you’re not even wearing one. This again is achieved by being properly fitted. Fitting yourself is easy and can be achieved with a couple of measurements and a little bit of math skills. Just remember band size - bust size= cup size! This concludes my demonstration on bra fitting. I want to say thank-you for listening and I appreciate your kind attention.
