The Six Stages of Lingerie Shopping

Every woman has worn lingerie past it’s expiration date. We see it falling apart, but denial takes over. We don’t want to part with the perfect fitting bra that goes with everything. Even if it doesn’t really fit anymore. For some of us, we don’t immediately get a new one because we feel like we can't afford it or we feel we just don't have the time to shop. Good fitting bras are pricey and cheap bras don’t fit well or last long. Lingerie shopping can also be time consuming. You won’t be able to run in on your lunch break and find your dream chemise. At least not one that's the perfect color, right size, and makes you feel fabulous! For most of us, it may not be the time, or the money, but the emotional investment we make. Shopping for intimate clothing is challenging, and overwhelming. Not finding anything that fits can take an emotional toll.

We know lingerie shopping is hard. We see women get discouraged all the time. Which is why we are open by appointment only. This allows us to give you all the help you need to find something you love. We have bras up size O, and lingerie up to 4X! We want to see every lady who comes in leave with something that makes her feel sexy. Even with all the new arrivals, lingerie shopping is still challenging. Finding the perfect lingerie is a process, a time consuming, emotional process. Before you find the right lingerie, here are a few emotional stages you might experience.

1. You notice everything is falling apart

That super cute bra you wear with everything has started to fade and the straps keep falling down. The words have faded off your panties, and that super cute chemise your special someone loves so much has tiny holes in the lace. You’re not ready to let your lingerie go, but you know it’s their time. So with much hesitation you trash them, grab your purse, and head to our store in hopes of finding a new perfect fitting bra, or something sexy to surprise your partner with.

3. Anxiety takes over

If you have never had a bra fitting before don't worry! It's a very simple and painless process. Angie will help you every step of the way. You won't even need to take your shirt off! Angie will take you to your own fitting room to measure you. We take two measurements. Yes, just two. Bra fitting measurements are painless and only take a minute. After she measures you she will go get a couple of bras for you to try. Why just try? Because measuring for a bra is not an exact science. Every woman's body and breasts are different and every bra is different. Measuring gives us a good starting point though.

4. The Lingerie High

Once we have your measurement and a good idea of what sizes to bring you, the real fun starts. We get to bring you lots of sexy lingerie! This is no time to be overwhelmed. This is the point where you try on all the pretties, and check out your gorgeous self in the mirror!  There are so many options. You love the colors and styles! How will you ever be able to decide what to buy?!

5. The Crash

Nothing in the first batch fit at all. The straps on the bras were too tight, the cups were too small. The babydoll didn’t fit correctly, and nothing has made you feel sexy. Angie assures you this is normal, but you still feel a little discouraged. You must have tried on twelve outfits with no success! You’re regretting throwing out all your old lingerie, and hope that no one took out the trash yet. You’re gathering your things when Angie comes back with another armload of stuff. She tells you again that this is normal, and a time consuming process. You decide to try on just a few more things. Mostly because what she brought you is too cute not to try on!

She found it!!! Your new lingerie fist you perfectly! The straps aren’t digging into your shoulders, the cups fit you perfectly, and the color! You’re so happy with this new find. Hope has been restored! You love it so much you ask for another armload of lingerie so you can find even more pretties!  

Don’t ever get discouraged when shopping for lingerie. Just because the first couple things don’t fit, that doesn't mean nothing will fit. We will help you find the right lingerie for you. We will make sure you leave our store with something that makes you feel sexy!
