  3. Denver-Aurora-Lakewood, Colorado
  4. Santa Cruz-Watsonville, California
  5. Santa Rosa, California
  6. San Luis Obispo, California
  7. San Francisco-Oakland, California
  8. Minneapolis-St. Paul, Minnesota
  9. Portland, Maine
  10. Fort Collins, Colorado

Yellowberry: Changing the Bra Industry
