NORTHERN SUNSHINE COAST AND HINTERLAND REGION'S 2009 ARTFUL BRA CHALLENGE The December 2009 meeting was the Regions' Artful Bra Challenge. Barbara Hawker, Tewantin Group leader approached Kelly Hart, the Health Promotion Officer at Breast Screen Queensland and discussed the idea. Kelly agreed to come and judge the entries. The Committee agreed that if the response was good, we would offer the bras for display at Breast Screen Queensland clinics, and also use them whenever we can to promote the Guild. It was a most successful display of bras. The photographs are of some of the exhibits mad by members. Our program manager discovered how manufacturers named bras cup sizes:

{A}Almost Boobs
{B}Barely there
{C}Can't complain!
{DD}Double Dang!
{G}Get a Reduction!
{H}Help me, I've fallen and I can't get up!

She claims that they forgot one - the German bra - which is called Der Stopemfromfloppen.
