supporting the girls

What is a delicate way to tell someone they need a little 'support'?

Hey M. - well, telling someone they need a better fitting bra can be awkward. If this is in the workplace - it is easy to default to a wardrobe policy - have me come in to explain why we (as women) don't want to show too much cleavage etc. (how's that for a plug?)...some other ideas would be to give her a gift certificate for a bra fitting (something else I can help you with), organize a girls shopping trip to Chicago and plan for some time at the Intimacy Boutique (let the bra experts tell her). Or - simply sit her down in private and tell her that you've noticed men looking and sneering at her in a way that she should know about. Chances are she doesn't realize she's exposing her 'goods', and not being taken seriously because of it. Approach the situation as a friend, and in a way that you would want to be addressed if the shoe was on the other foot.
