Last summer, a lady at St George’s tennis club gave me an old brown T-shirt with the Bjorn Borg kneeling victory celebration silhouette in white logo (see pic). I guess she thought I could fit it but it was too big for me, so I got this idea to use that logo and fabric in a pair of tennis shorts highlighting that logo. They’re be like long beach or basketball shorts except I’d use them for tennis given that Bjorn Borg tennis player logo.

However, an idea popped into my head and I was able to walk away with some useful, as well as unique, buttons! Well, that is until someone exactly copies this idea. :)

I’ve heard this statistic numerous time in some similar approximation ranging from about 70% to 80%, but it’s mind blowing to me no matter what end of that range one chooses. Even if the statistic were 50% of women were wearing the wrong bra size, I would have been shocked.
