The truth is, almost 90% of women are wearing the wrong size bra. Seems crazy, but the truth is that unless you are being professionally fitted, it is extremely difficult to know what to buy. you go to the mechanic when your car needs fixing, and you should also see a professional when you need to buy a bra!
You hate wearing it
bra lifts when you raise your arms (and boobs fall out the bottom!)
The underwire is hurting you, or digs into the armpit
The middle pulls away from the chest
Overflow or "double boob"
Gaps in the top of the cup, or you don’t fill it out
Your shoulders hurt or you have headaches
Straps are always falling off your shoulders
The band rides up your back
You don't feel lifted and supported
At Friday's Image, a bra fitting is key to purchasing the right bra for you.
It can take anywhere from 10-30 minutes, and our bra fit stylists or "braristas" are always listening to you and will bring all options that suit your individual needs.
The process consists of you and a professional fitter, one measurement, and voila! The fitter will bring you a few bras to try on, determining your bra zone. Every bra fits a little differently, so it is important that you try on each bra you are considering to ensure a perfect fit. The bra fitter will offer advice and adjust the size if needed, and make sure the straps are the correct length for you.
Be honest with your fitter to make sure that they are able to make you as comfortable and happy as possible. If you have questions, just ask! Bras are complicated, believe it or not, and our staff is trained to take the guesswork out of it for you!
Our trained bra fitting staff really care about our clients and are dedicated to finding YOU the perfect bra!
It's never a bad idea to have a fitting! Our bodies are constantly changing and you are never guaranteed to be the same size, and certainly not the same size in every bra. Every time you buy a bra, it's a good idea to have a fitting.
Bras do go through a lot of wear and tear, especially if not properly cared for (hand wash in cold water, no dryer!). Every bra will eventually stretch out and will need to be replaced.
we sell Eucalan, a no-rinse wash for delicates. It makes washing your bras a breeze, and does not harm the delicate fabrics or elastics. It has a ton of other uses too! Just a cap full in the sink, soak, and hang. That’s it!
Smooths, uplifts, supports and flatters!
Proper support from the band takes the pressure off the straps and the shoulders, reducing pain
Bra stays put when you move -- no falling out the bottom or constant tugging
Make you look larger or smaller, depending on your preference
Slims your figure! brings the chest forward to enhance the waist! 10 lbs lighter instantly!
All manufacturers use different patterns, and the style of the bra can have a lot of influence on the fit
Material and construction of the bra -- bras made of stretchy lace fit differently than some more rigid synthetic fibers
International sizing -- Different countries have different sizing standards, and adapt their styles as such
It is important to try on every bra you consider purchasing, as even bras from the same brand fit differently depending on the style
If this seems complicated, it is! That's why we love to help you through each shopping experience by helping you through the entire fitting, and sort through the store to bring you options! We know our stuff!
