Get fit!

BRA.jpgAs Breast Cancer Awareness Month rolls along, the delicate subject of getting the right fit (as in bras) is something to think about - along with monthly self-exams.

All this week (through Friday), the Wacoal company is sponsoring Fit for the Cure events at local Macy's stores.

(Research shows that an amazing eight out of 10 women are still wearing the wrong-sized bra. That said, it's not a bad idea to be professionally measured once a year to ensure bra size has not changed. After all, whose bod is the same as it was 12 months ago?)

Here's what you'd get: a complimentary fitting in either a Wacoal, DKNY Underwear or Donna Karan Intimates bra. You'll also receive a monthly e-mail reminder to do a self-exam. Plus, for every woman who participates, Wacoal will donate $2 to Susan G. Komen For the Cure, with an additional $2 for every bra purchased.

Here are times and dates for the events:

* 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday at Macy's Arden Fair.
* 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesday at Macy's at the Roseville Galleria.
* 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Thursday at Macy's Sunrise Birdcage.
* 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday at Macy's Downtown Plaza.

More news: A store called At Last ... Bra & Lingerie in Town & Country Village (Fulton and Marconi avenues) was recently profiled in Body magazine, which focuses on trends in the intimate-apparel industry. The boutique specializes in high-quality European bras and, of course, the perfect fit.

At Last is also teaming with the Komen foundation with its Buy a Bra for Breast Cancer event this month. For more info: (916) 480-9501.

About Comments

Reader comments on are the opinions of the writer, not The Sacramento Bee. If you see an objectionable comment, click the "report abuse" button below it. We will delete comments containing inappropriate links, obscenities, hate speech, and personal attacks. Flagrant or repeat violators will be banned. See more about comments here.

What You Should Know About Comments on is happy to provide a forum for reader interaction, discussion, feedback and reaction to our stories. However, we reserve the right to delete inappropriate comments or ban users who can't play nice. (See our full terms of service here.)

Here are some rules of the road:

• Keep your comments civil. Don't insult one another or the subjects of our articles. If you think a comment violates our guidelines click the "report abuse" button to notify the moderators. Responding to the comment will only encourage bad behavior.

• Don't use profanities, vulgarities or hate speech. This is a general interest news site. Sometimes, there are children present. Don't say anything in a way you wouldn't want your own child to hear.

• Do not attack other users; focus your comments on issues, not individuals.

• Stay on topic. Only post comments relevant to the article at hand. If you want to discuss an issue with a specific user, click on his profile name and send him a direct message.

• Do not copy and paste outside material into the comment box.

• Don't repeat the same comment over and over. We heard you the first time.

• Do not use the commenting system for advertising. That's spam and it isn't allowed.

• Don't use all capital letters. That's akin to yelling and not appreciated by the audience.

You should also know that The Sacramento Bee does not screen comments before they are posted. You are more likely to see inappropriate comments before our staff does, so we ask that you click the "report abuse" button to submit those comments for moderator review. You also may notify us via email at Note the headline on which the comment is made and tell us the profile name of the user who made the comment. Remember, comment moderation is subjective. You may find some material objectionable that we won't and vice versa.

If you submit a comment, the user name of your account will appear along with it. Users cannot remove their own comments once they have submitted them, but you may ask our staff to retract one of your comments by sending an email to Again, make sure you note the headline on which the comment is made and tell us your profile name.

On October 14, The Sacramento Bee will temporarily remove commenting from While we design the upgrade, we encourage you to tell us what you like and don't like about commenting on and other websites.
