Okay, it is so embarrassing to say that I went to get a bra last week because all of my bras were ‘tore up from the floor up’. If you aren’t from GA, you may not know that term. Anyway, underwire was missing, hooks bent-a hot mess. So I go to Belle Mode Intimates to get a bra because it is a real lingerie store. Not like VS with the spring break collection. A classy ladies store. What VS used to be like before PINK took it over. Anyway, they measured me and looked for bras and I tried on 20-at least.
These people never faltered. They searched and critiqued and helped me immensely. I have large ones, so it was not an easy task! I even changed my mind and returned one and got the one that I thought worked best the next day. I only spent 48 dollars for the bra. But, the time and energy they spent helping me was worth a hell of a lot more than that 15 dollar Target bra that works for 3 months and I buy it having no clue if it is right for me.
You should check them out. And no I am not getting paid to say this. ( I haven’t written on this blog for 2 years, so I hardly have sponsors.:) )The location is in Fairfax, VA at Fairfax Corner. For those of you in the District who are freaking at the distance, grin and bear it and get in your car for a ride down 66 West to 57 A and it is really not far from the interstate. You can try on a bra and buy one or some new undies or super cute workout wear, go to a movie and then go to Wegman’s to do some fab grocery shopping and eating. It is a win/win!
I feel so grownup now that I have been properly fitted. Who knew I was a band size up and a cup down!? Anyway, the website is: http://www.bellemodeintimates.com/ Check it out. Support small businesses. They are what make this country. Truly. You get what you pay for.
