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.
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.

Yesterday I got a call from Good Morning America asking to interview me about a very interesting French research study. This study claimed something very surreal to me: that wearing a bra will actually promote saggy breasts tissue and back pain. GMA wanted to know if I had anything to say about the research. Boy, did I ever! Watch the clip below, and keep reading to see behind the scenes photos, read the article on the French study, and get my full opinion on the topic of going bra-less. Plus, share your own thoughts in the comments!
I’m such a proud Bra Diva momma! I work hard to train my bra fitters to be experts in their field, and I’m always proud when they use that knowledge to help the women in my stores or online. But I’m even more proud when I see them living what they preach, and of course, so excited for them when they get married! Last year, two of my top Bra Divas took the plunge and married the special men in their lives. And these beautiful brides have agreed to share their bridal gown and undergarment shopping secrets with the rest of us. Believe me, they’ve helped enough brides in the past that they were well prepared for this adventure – but nothing beats real life experience.
Now these two Divas are prepared to share their insider tips on choosing the best undergarments for your wedding day!
Bras Divas Kim and Britney are two savvy and experienced bra fitters. These two newlyweds have very different body types and personal style, though. I’m excited for their unique takes on shopping for two very different wedding gowns. (more…)
As a bra fitting expert, I help a lot of brides and bridesmaid. A lot! So last year when I noticed the hashtag #bridechat in my Twitter feed, I decided to see if any Twitter brides needed my expertise. Turns out, they did! I help women with their undergarment and lingerie questions for the big day. I counsel brides to think about their friend’s breasts before demanding that every bridesmaid wear a backless gown. I even offer up my own thoughts on non-bra related topics! It’s really fun. And, there’s a whole group of industry professionals that are on hand to help brides, couples, etc. with their wedding questions! What’s even better: the group is full of really cool, really honest pros. And that includes the new host of this chat, wedding photographer Casey Fachett. Below, he gives us the skinny on Bride Chat!
