Confessions Of A Curvy Girl: Cultural Divide

Confessions Of A Curvy Girl
I was doing some research for this column and I began to wonder if there were different standards of underwear in other countries. Simply put – do all women wear some kind of bra?

I really thought this was going to be an easy question with a simple answer – either yes or no.

I have a close friend whose intricate dress does not allow for a bra. The style in which she wraps the fabric does the job instead. I still wanted to know if the style and expectations differed from culture to culture, country to country. I also wanted to know if shoppers across the globe had the same wants, needs and preferences that American consumers do.

My results were as varied as the people I talked to. Some didn’t put much thought into what kind of undergarments they wore. Some only considered white to be an acceptable color. Some didn’t wear any undergarments at all.

I want to know what YOU think and how your cultural background affects how YOU shop. Weigh in below.
