We have so many strong fantastic business women in this town. They are supportive, encouraging, empowering and unbelievably creative. These are the type of women that I love to surround myself with. Recently I was given the opportunity to create with some of these unbelievable women in a Fairfield Magazine article called Girl Power. (September/October 2019 edition). These women were incredible
Vanity sizing has become quite popular in the fashion industry. Large fashion companies are purposely changing how things are sized, so much so, many customers come into our store not knowing what their true size is. Fortunately for them, we have a fantastic staff that is able to help them figure out what size they truly are in loungewear, underwear, or shapewear. However what about bra sizing? Is there such a thing about vanity sizing for bras? There are 3 different things going on in the bra industry.
I just can’t say enough good things about Cosabella. We absolutely love when Cosabella’s sales rep, Johanna, comes to visit. When she shows us the new items for the season, we feel like it is Christmas morning. I wish I could buy one of everything for the store (and for me too!) but there is only so much space in the store (and my closet).
I am sure you have all thought it, “I can’t stand when a bra is tight because my ‘back fat’ will show”. In an effort to correct the back fat, you wear the wrong size bra to make sure you have a smooth back. However, do you ever look at the front of you after that? You have boobs that are down by your waist or hanging to the sides. This makes you look fuller, not to mention, all the strain you are putting on your shoulders and breast tissue. So you solved the problem of back fat but you created many other issues. Pain and suffering for the benefit of a smooth back is not the answer.
Come join me on my journey through the patience and being a bra fitter....
