Hey there! It’s Kim from Linda’s. The fifth video installment of the Braducational Video series is another good one: How to Spot a Dead Bra. I know customers and friends that own bras that are years and years old. But the truth is, bras usually only last about 6-9 months if they are in heavy rotation. But before you toss all of those old bras, this video will teach you how to spot a “dead bra”. Because once your bra can no longer do its job – it’s time to let it rest in peace! (more…)

Kim here! I love helping women find the best fitting bras, and there are a lot of things that we certified bra fitters look for when it comes to a good fit. At Linda’s, we have a lot of bra knowledge and can help women pick between a good and great fitting bra. But what if you don’t have one of us with you? What if you have a favorite bra and aren’t sure if it’s fitting properly anymore? Don’t despair! Here are a few basic things to look for when bra shopping, or when checking in on your current bras.
Hey there! It’s Kim from Linda’s 😀 I’ve been a bra fitter for many years. When helping customers, I usually help women get into each of their bras, and focus on how it fits, and help adjust each bra. But after awhile, I started letting the customer put on her bra or adjust herself… and was quickly horrified. You wouldn’t believe the crazy things I saw, and the bra mistreatment that I witnessed. From the “crush and flip”, to putting it on over their head (for real – a young woman fastened her bra and then attempted to stretch the bra over her head and shoulders), to yanking up the straps…no good! Most women don’t think twice about putting on their bra. But putting it on wrong can actually stretch out your bra, dent cups, and ruin underwires. So if you want to help your bras last longer, and learn how to properly adjust your cups and straps: read on! Learn how to put on your bra…
Hi everyone! It’s Kim from Linda’s 🙂 I hope you loved the first Braducational video: How to Hand Wash Your Bras. If you missed it, check it out! Next up in this series is: How to Measure Yourself for a Bra. Let’s be clear: an in-person fitting with an expert bra fitter (like the Bra Divas at Linda’s) is ideal. As expert fitters, we have so much bra knowledge in our heads, and have tried each of the of bra styles on hundreds of women. We typically use a measuring tape to measure a woman’s underbust, then take a look at her breast tissue for shape and size, and go from there. Getting a bra fitting at Linda’s is really easy, and fun. But if you can’t make it into the shop this video will walk you through the process of measuring yourself at home so you can find a starting point for your best bra size! Take a look at the video, and read my extra tips and advice below.

Hi everyone! I’m Kim from Linda’s. I’ve worked in the lingerie and bra fitting business for about 8 years. Linda is a great teacher! I also gained a lot of experience in the luxury and high end lingerie business. But when it comes down to it, bra fitting and proper bra care are my true passions. And let’s be honest, whether you spend $50 or $500 on a bra, it has to fit right, and you have to take care of it. I’m so thrilled with this new Braducational Video series. It’s a project that I feel very strongly will help women learn more about their bras, and their boobs! (more…)
