Our dear friend Denise came in for a fitting this week. It was her first fitting with us and as a person who speaks life into our store and our lives, we were very excited to hear her thoughts on the experience.
“I have never had a bra fitting and I wasn’t sure what to expect” said Denise. Uplift’s fitting rooms are comfortable, nice and roomy. After a few measurements, Carla asked me several questions to help her determine what my personal likes and needs were, then off she went. While I sat comfortably in the dressing room, Carla went through her vast stock of bras that she carries on-site and found several options for me. I tried them on, and then I tried on some more, and then I tried on some more… Her patience in finding just the right fit and match for who I am was so appreciated.”
Denise said the process reminded her of TLC’s reality tv show “Say YES to the Dress. At Uplift, you start by saying “YES” to the process. We take your measurements, but each woman is more than her numbers. The “size” and fit of each style and designer is slightly different. Not to mention other options like colors, fit, function, comfort, etc. It truly is a process. But when you find the one that fits you perfectly, you feel yourself light up. When you’ve spent your entire life wearing something that you think fits but really doesn’t, that you think is doing the job it is designed to do, but isn’t and then find something that truly fits, works and is beyond what you thought possible, and satisfies a deep female desire to be seen – with your own eyes – as beautiful, it can be life changing.
Living in discomfort in your own skin can become a habit. You’ll never know all that it keeps you from doing and being. Until you make a change. Carla has fit tens of thousands of women over the past 15 years. She’s seen a thing or two about bras. We encourage you, like Denise, to come in and make the investment of time in the fitting process.
Until we meet again, Behind the Curtain!
