A few weeks ago, the Linda’s ladies and our fabulous customers gathered at my Murray Hill store to celebrate the “Find your Fabulous” Event. Though I wasn’t able to make it, the girls filled me in on the evening’s festivities. Trust me, it was FABULOUS.

Let’s face it – I’m not called “The Bra Lady” for nothing! I truly love bras, and love helping women find the best bras. After more than 25 years of bra fitting, I still love it. I can not tell you how fulfilling it is to help a woman finally feel comfortable, confident, and fabulous… and all with a good bra!

We are so thankful to be back up and running after the Hurricane, and we’re even more thankful to have such supportive and fabulous customers like you. Come on in, and let us shower you with gifts!
Because, girl, you deserve it!
Breasts come in many different shapes and sizes. As a bra fitter for over 25 years, I’ve seen almost every size from AAA cups to N cups. Women often have complicated relationships with their busts. Some love them, some hate them – most finally love them once they’re in the right bra size! But in all that time, there is one thing that is alarmingly clear: those with full breasts want small breasts, and those with small breasts want full breasts. In a world where bigger is (usually) better – is having bigger breasts really better? Keep reading for my two cents, and leave your own opinion in the comments below!
Ch-ch-ch-changes! I’ve been in the bra business for a long time – over 25 years. In those years I have fit thousands of women with thousands of bras. I have always used the same “good fit” criteria, and made it my mission to help women find the right bra size, feel comfortable, and be confident. Throughout my years, I’ve always said that an in-person fitting with a trained bra fitter is best, but I’ve also been “braducating” women about what makes a good fit, how to shop for bras on their own, and even how to measure themselves to get a good starting point.
Recently, I was interviewed by SheFinds.com and suggested that bra sizes have changed in the past 10 years due to vanity sizing. This led to a segment on Good Morning America (above), more articles, and a huge discussion on the social media outlets. I was expecting some differing views on the topic, but I wasn’t expecting so much misunderstanding. So, keep on reading for my explanation of why I think vanity sizing has changed modern bra sizes.
School is just around the corner! It’s a great time to check in with your daughters and the young women in your life. Have things changed over the summer? And I don’t mean does she have a tan and great memories from camp. I mean, has her breast size changed? I know – this can be a pretty uncomfortable topic. I wrote a fabulous post (in my humble opinion) on helping your daughter buy her first bra, but what happens when she outgrows those bras? And more importantly, what happens if the little girl that you’ve raised suddenly has a more womanly figure … and is totally uncomfortable having it?
Below are my tips on the importance of “braducating” your daughter on what a normal cup size is and how you can help create a positive image of her changing body so she won’t spent her mornings taping down her breasts like Roberta in Now and Then.
Last Tuesday was our first ever Tasty Tuesday at Linda’s Lexington, and what a tasty evening it was! If you missed out on the free cocktails, yummy treats and bra fittings, here’s a few photos to get you up to speed. Some of our favorite customers stopped in for a re-fitting, brought a friend, or just said hi to our new manager and the staff! Lots of gals gobbled up our tasty treats (both healthy and sinful options) as well as the summery orange+cranberry+raspberry cocktail my Divas mixed up! There were lots of laughs, tons of girl talk, and some pretty amazing before and after bra make overs.
And keep an eye out so you won’t miss out – maybe we’ll host another Tasty Tuesday soon!
