No Magic Voodoo Here!

One of the biggest misconceptions I hear when women tell me what bra size they are wearing and I estimate what their correct size is "Well, that's what size I might be in YOUR bras" A lot of women actually think that I "doctor" my bra sizes or use some kind of special bra sizing just to get them in one of MY bras. This couldn't be further from the truth! Most of you who have been measured by me know I take two circumference measurements, one where the band should sit and another one across the highest point of the breast (at the nipple, or apex) and then I pull out my trusty chart and SHOW you, based on the difference between these two numbers what your estimated bra size is (many factors come into play, but lets just focus on the basics here). Here is the chart I use, and GLOBALLY it's an industry standard: Think about how your bra fits. Think about the endless adjustments you are making. If this is happening, you are in the wrong size bra! Double DD is really small if you look at the chart. That's only a 5 inch difference between your two measurements. Measure yourself, (preferably without a bra on) then look at the chart and then tell yourself again you are a DD (or an A cup, for that matter, most women who believe they are A cups are really D cups!)

Valentine's Day 2015 and learning what my clients REALLY need

Whew! I'm still recovering from Valentine's Day week! Thank you everyone who came out and visited the boutique. Did you guys know that I sold more bras than intimates last week? Sure, there were some pretty darn gorgeous lingerie pieces that went out the door last week, but overall, there were more bra purchases! Ladies, I AM paying attention to your needs. I'll still continue to offer beautiful intimates and sleepwear, but I'm also working on getting more bra styles in in shapes and wires that work for some of you who need something a little more on the narrow side of life. Thank you all for your patience. I'm frustrated with the ordering process with some of these companies, please bear with me!
