A BRA-illiant Fit!

George at Asda Takes to the Streets With Ladies in Lingerie to Give the Nation's Men a Helping Hand This Valentine's Day

- 83% of women would like to receive lingerie from their valentine this year

- Nearly 60% of men admit to not knowing their partner's bra size

- 1 in 5 women reveal they could be wearing the wrong size bra

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Feb. 9, 2012) - George at Asda has given the nation's men help in choosing right sized bra for their partners this Valentine's Day by taking to the streets of London with four gorgeous women wearing its Valentine's lingerie range.

The women braved the cold to showcase a selection of the brand's extensive bra and knicker range, as well as highlighting the variety of sizes available at George.

When put to the test on the street many loved-up Lotharios had no idea what size would be the best fit for their partner and a recent poll by George at Asda revealed men are coming up bust on bra sizes; 57% admitted they have no idea what size their partner is. Interestingly, nearly 20% of women also revealed they aren't sure if they're wearing the correct size, leaving their men with little hope of getting it right.

But with more than 80% of women saying underwear is at the top of their Valentine wish-list, George has come to the rescue and dropped a well needed hint to men across the country that it's the thought, and right size that counts when buying lingerie as a gift for a loved one.

A George spokesperson said: "Following the results of our recent poll we felt it was time to give men across the nation an obvious hint that they may not be always getting their partners sizing correct when buying lingerie as a gift. The heart shaped signs displaying the models bra sizes were the perfect way to show that women of similar sizes can have totally different bust sizes and men need to do their homework in order to win some serious brownie points this Valentine's Day.

"We hope that showcasing a selection of what's on offer this Valentine's Day in a variety of sizes provided men with a few hints and clues as to what buy their partners this year. Our lingerie range includes cute and feminine everyday essentials for women as well as more luxurious gift sets to make ladies across the nation feel special. We hope London enjoyed its helping hand."
