Can I bring my child to my appointment?

We suggest not bringing children to fitting appointments. We encourage a relaxing experience that enables you to enjoy the time you have given yourself. We also understand women are busy moms who do what they have to do!

Is the bra fitter going to see and or touch my breasts?

We do not touch your breasts. If we need the breast tissue to be moved and adjusted we will teach you how to do so without affecting the fit of the bra. We do not need to see your exposed breast. During the fitting part of your consultation you will be asked to face the wall and remove your bra. We will stand behind you for guidance and support. We will then quickly hand you your new bra to and hook the back of the new bra once you are in the cups. We then continue with the 3 step process we use to get a near perfect fit. If you are modest and uncomfortable we have robes in the room you may use. You may also ask us to remain out of the room all together but that is not advised as we have much to cover in the room in regards to putting your bra on, wearing your bra in the "sweet spot" and adjusting the straps for maximum comfort.

 

At The Bra Boudoir highly recommend that you own 3-4 good fitting bras that you can rotate throughout the week to make your bras last their full lifetime of 8 months to a year.  Wearing the same bra every day and not taking proper care of your bras can significantly shorten their useful lifespan.

 

If you are physically able to, it is best to place the straps on your shoulders and to lean forward to help your breast tissue fall into the cups.  

 

Hook your bra new bra on the loosest setting for a snug but not too tight of a fit.

Make sure the bra is directly underneath of your breast tissue, not on your belly.

Than scoop and swoop your breast tissue forward from the side like we did during

the fitting.

If you can not hook your bra this way, it is better to spin your bra than it is to hook it and pull it over your head.

If you have to spin your bra to put it on talc free powder is recommended to reduce friction and possibility of ruining the bra.

 

Don’t forget to make sure your band is low enough in the back and not riding up by your shoulder blades.

 

Bras should be hand washed in luke warm water with a delicate detergent.  We recommend Eucalan. If washing in a washing machine ONLY wash on the delicate cycle with your bras in a lingerie bag to decrease any damage being done by the machine. This option is NEVER recommended for bras with a foam cup.

 

Do not wring dry foam cups, you can press the water out of the cups with a towel.  Hang to dry by the center of the bra where there is no stretch or lay flat to dry. NEVER PUT YOUR BRAS IN THE DRYER! The dryer will permanently damage the elastic, could bend the underwire and stretch out and/or tear the lace.  It is best to NEVER put ANY delicates in the dryer.

 

It is best to keep your bras in a drawer when you aren't wearing them, sitting up right, behind one another fitting the cups together. Or you may hang them like you see them in the store by both straps.

Do not bend your bras, do not twist them at the center, do not fold the foam cups inside out because that will damage the cups.

Putting On Your Bra

Care Instructions

Your bra may feel a little tight at first because it is new fresh material that needs to

be worn and broken in a little bit before it shapes to your body, like shoes for example.

If you have been put into a smaller band it is because of what size your rib cage measures.

It  may feel a bit tight at first but that is something you will get used to especially

when the elastic starts to stretch from wearing it and body heat.

It may take up to two weeks to break in, depending on how much you wear it and how sensitive your body tends to react to things.

 

The bra you purchased was fit to you and is the one best for your body type and for giving your breast the optimal support that they need. If the band is looser

than the size that you need than, the bra will not be able to support your breast, it will cause the bra to shift while you are wearing it and could even cause your breast to fall out of the bottom of the cup.

 

You may find that when you take off your bra that you have red marks or slight indents

in your skin, this is completely normal and is the same as the marks your socks, pants or other garments containing elastic will leave on your body.

How long does it take?

All consultations are different given the circumstances. A bra fitting can take between 15 minutes and 1 hour. The same goes for lingerie and bridal fittings. The average fitting is 30 minutes start to finish. One more fantastic benefit of making an appointment.

 

What sizes do we carry?

We currently carry bra sizes from 28A-46O in store. We can special order higher sizes if needed.  Lingerie starts at Small and goes to 3X.
