About the Author

Ali Cudby is the CEO of Fab Foundations™ LLC. Ali's bra fit advice goes to tens of thousands of consumers and industry professionals - each month. In addition to her writing, Ali works closely with manufacturers and retailers, studying buyer behavior, technological innovations in lingerie, and marketing opportunities. Ali's expertise as a bra coach began with her own journey. As a full-busted woman, she spent her early bra-wearing years miserable when shopping in the lingerie department, as she was never able to find bras that fit properly. In 2004, on a fated trip to England, Ali joyfully discovered the world of pretty bras beyond a DD-cup. Further bra fit education led to the realization that most women - of every cup size from AAA to N - have some level of confusion when it comes to bra fit. Now Ali's mission is to help every woman find a bra that's a FabFit. Ali holds an MBA from Wharton Business School and lives in the Washington DC area with her husband, two teenagers and two dogs. You can find Ali online at fabfoundations.com, on Facebook's Ali Cudby Author Fan Page, and on Twitter @alicudby.

I have found the brands suggested in the book to be tried & true and the method for fit to work well.

Who better to write a book on finding the proper bra for your body than someone who has been through the struggle herself! Best book on the market for helping women find a bra that won't drive them crazy with discomfort. I have found the brands suggested in the book to be tried & true and the method for fit to work well. Before you go out to replenish your undergarment supply, READ THIS BOOK!!! Will be ordering multiple copies to give to friends!!! Found the Author's blog- fabfoundations.com! Definately worth the read.

This book is very educational, and suggests trying stuff on, rather than working with the tape measure. She suggests if you dont know your size, work with bringing the band down until it fits, then adding a cup size. This formula works out really well because it helped me find my proper size . She says there really is no such thing as being a cup size, and that makes sense.A 36B bra holds about as much as a 34C bra, and we can take that down to 30DD/E. They hold about the same amount of volume (or breast tissue), only diffrence is the band. Ali's book also gives helpful hints on how to find your size for diffrent models, helpful tips for washing, helpful charts, and a plethora of other helpful things. This book is so good I actually keep it in my purse so if I am hanging out with a friend who is having the same issues I am having, she can read it, and apply it to her current bra knowledge. This book is extremely educational, and I like that about it. I think infact to take it a step further, this should be taught in High School as a staple text book. Get this book, you wont regret it. I only wish I had bought this book sooner.

After having two kids, I knew I needed help, and Ms. Cudby's book was the answer. It is really helpful to know how to take care of bras (I've been too rough on mine), how often to wear them (what? you can't wear them for two weeks straight without washing?!), and how long to keep them (why can't I wear my bright purple bra from when I was 22???).

So, then I went shopping, and I highlighted the pages where she talks about the best fit and took the book with me. I now have several staples that I know will last and make me feel good. My tops really do fit, look and feel better, smoother.

I do suggest this book for teenagers as they start buying bras. It is important to learn these things early.

Format: Paperback
Whatever your bra size, Busted! has relevant information you can and will use. This book will help you understand how to take control and become your own best bra fitting expert. Ali Cudby's body-positive perspective is refreshing in an industry that can be critical of women's bodies to the point of hostility.

Cudby's sensitive, straightforward and well-researched book reads like a letter from your big sister. She gives women credit for knowing what feels right and what doesn't, acknowledging that there is no universal formula for bra fitting that works for everyone. But the advice she does provide is the kind of information every woman should have. Next time you go bra shopping, make sure you bring a copy of Busted! along for reference. It is an indispensable, intelligent work on a subject that has confused and frustrated too many of us for way too long. If you've ever felt this way about bras, take heart: Busted! will put an end to your dread of bra shopping.

Highly recommended.
