"What's striking, reading this fact-stuffed book - the first in a "body literacy library" series - are the many small pockets of misinformation that persist and how profoundly they can affect us. Bra sizing is absurdly confusing, and 80 per cent of women wear poorly fitting bras. Kaye offers pages of guidance."
