32-year-old Stephanie walks into a local lingerie shop wearing an ill-fitting bra. She’s timid and very shaky while asking an associate for assistance. She then explains to the certified fit specialist that she can never find the right bra so she resorted to athletic bras that give her the infamous “uniboob”. She has two sons ages 4 and 9 and she has been wearing the same few bras since her first child’s birth. Stephanie stated that she never feels her best and she felt that it was time for a change. Hence, the fit specialist suggests that Stephanie gets fitted so that she could help her on her task.
Her mission to feel sexier first starts with the most important step, getting fitted for her official bra size. She couldn’t remember the last time she wore a normal bra and so she definitely could not remember a size exactly, but she guessed a 36C. It was obvious that the size was incorrect, in fact it was completely off. After being measured, Stephanie discovered that she really wore a 34DDD. Not only was she thrown off by this size, she couldn’t believe it and refused to accept that as her size. The specialist instantly changed Stephanie’s mind when she brought a Natori Element ‘Element’ Full Fit Contour Underwire Bra back for her to try on. After Stephanie she tried on the bra, she looked into the mirror and let out a giant gasp. Stephanie revealed a smile for the first time since she been in the store. What became apparent is that she was ashamed and she had little confidence upon arrival to the store. Stephanie was so satisfied and happy that she bought three of the Element Bras in different colors. Her mission was complete and her confidence was through the roof.
Stephanie’s case is a reoccurring situation that lingerie shops come across on a daily basis. Women come in wearing the wrong bra size and leave feeling like a goddess but why is that? Believe it or not, the right fitting bra can give you a clean look and so much confidence. Think about it, a great fitting bra not only gives you the appearance of a perfect bust but also phenomenal posture that will transform into assurance. The reason I think Stephanie’s story is an important one is because many women are experiencing the same issue as she did. So, make your way down to a lingerie shop and get a full-personalized fitting. If the “specialist” decides to fit you on top of your shirt, leave immediately. Fittings that only measure around your chest through your shirt will having you wearing a bra 7 sizes too big. Therefore, if you are missing your confidence, go down to the lingerie shop and trust me, you will leave feeling like a new gal.
