From the time I started wearing a bra, to the time I found myself in the lingerie business; nearly 25 years passed before I was "properly" fitted for a bra! I can not believe it! I must say I did my darndest to figure out my bra size on my own, by reading, trying on and using on-line calculators. I was measured once at Victoria's Secret, years ago, but they didn't have my size and suggested going up a band size and down in the cup size. I have to say, I was shocked when I was properly fitted in a bra size I never heard of before! A 30" Band! That is where my passion and drive for this business began. I want to help every woman find her true bra size and discover just what a difference a properly fitting bra can make. So with that said, there is definitely and art to fitting bras. It not only requires a tape measure, but an eye for the different shapes of women, and a knowledge of the different styles and manufacturers of bras.
So what should you expect when you come to Arcella's for a bra fitting? First of all, I will try to make you as comfortable as possible in the dressing room. I will start your assesment before you even remove your shirt. Once your shirt is removed, I will continue my assesment by measuring you for your band size. I will then take a measurement over the fullest part of your bust line to get a ballpark of your cup size. This is where the art comes in......while you wait in the comfort of the dressing room, I will bring you a bra to start the fitting process. I will keep returning with bras until we find the style and size that are perfect for you. That is it! If I don't have it, I will follow up when the perfect merchandise comes in.
I realize that this experience may seam a bit unnerving to some of you, but I promise I will do my best to make it a comfortable and enlightening experience. Soooo, if you straps are falling down or your girls are talking to your belly button, it is time for you to consider a bra fitting with yours truly. See you soon!
