The first and very important commandment. Your body constantly keeps undergoing changes, and so do your breasts. So, if you want to keep abreast (no bad pun intended) of your body, it is important that you get yourself measured at least twice a year.

Your love for your favourite pair of PJs or nightdress shall not stop you from indulging in finer lingerie. Wear exquisite nightwear to pamper yourself and get in touch with your sensuous self. So, expand your nightwear collection beyond functional to indulge in quality intimate time with yourself.

A sports bra is not just an accessory, even though the right ones do make a fashion statement. As a woman who cares about the well-being of her breasts, you shall never workout in a regular bra. A good sports bra will minimize the movement of your breasts thereby reducing discomfort, pain, and friction while you exercise.

#6 You shall discard a worn out bra
