March 30th, 2009 – Woman of the Week, Andrea Clair
Andrea is president and founder of Wink Intimates, and when we met, she was wearing her creation under that otherwise unforgiving v-neck wrap shirt: the 9to5 Bra.

But for many women, finding a bra that does double duty – playing down cleavage without producing the dreaded "e;uni-boob" – can be a challenge.
