Physics and Marks and Spencer

“Why have their share prices plummeted?” I asked Richard as we walked towards our favorite restaurant, the Indian Ocean. “The only reason I know is I have shares with them. They use to be a staple of British fashion. The customer was always right and they got what they wanted – quality. ”

M and S bra is the place to go for a good discussion on the physics of a bra.

My first bra fitter and I didn’t have great chemistry. She was bossy and domineering. Abruptly swishing the curtain back and forth on me like an air hostess without warning me she was coming. Not good etiquette when I’m naked from the waist up. She might have noticed my frustration. I finally blurted out “I’m not finding this (meaning you) helpful.”

I went back another day and got better customer service. I also had a conversation on world affairs. My 2nd bra fitter was a banker before this job so she knew the global markets and the root cause of today’s world affairs. She said 90% of women are not wearing the right bra size. It’s especially important for women following breast surgery. You may have sensitive scar tissue, some swelling and feel quite tender, so it’s important for a bra to fit well and not to rub.

Good old Marks and Spencer !

Teaching health education, fashion, world affairs and physics in the bra department.
