Our 1st Year
We opened our first retail shop last year. It was a baptism of fire and what a journey it has been. We have laughed, we have cried and like any new venture we have gone through highs and lows. Thankfully, there were more highs than lows. Thank you to all our customers who have supported us and grown with us on this journey.
We listen to you.
We have learnt new things, but always been reminded of why we stand firm on certain things. We may be the experts that can help you fit a bra however, you know YOUR body and we respect that. When I am fitting, I am looking for the moment your body that actually tells me it likes the bra. It often happens before your mind has even registered it. A satisfied client instantly stands taller and gets that sparkle in her eye. Jackpot! We can’t wait to give you advice on fitting, and help you find your perfect bra, but at the end of the day, you know your body best.
Moms invest in your daughters.
I have been very privileged to work with a number of young ladies over the past years. Every time I see relief on a young woman’s face when she finds a bra that fits under her school uniform orr a sports bra that actually supports, so that she can participate in sport without having to worry.
To illustrate this, I was fitting a lady the other day and she mentioned that she is still haunted by what one of the boys said to her about her breasts when she was 14! I don’t want to disclose her age, but that was at least 20 years ago.
Moms you may not have developed at the same rate or time as your daughter,but don’t forget that she might need some help so that she too can feel confident. Let us help you cement this confidence early on.
My bra of the year
The bra that made my year is the new Panache non-wired Sports bra with the extended band. It is simply one of my favourite bras! For active ladies this is definitely one to take a look at. I love the support and comfort it offers and the extended band is fantastic! I highly recommend this as an option for active South African women looking for a sports bra.
As I reflect on the year gone by, I would personally like to thank all of you for your continued support. To some of our loyal online customers who travelled (sometimes long distances) to see us, it was lovely meeting you face to face. To the ladies that pop in from time to time just to say “Hi”, we love it and if we have not seen you recently please pop in for a cup of coffee soon.
Everyone learns through experience. We have learnt that helping you to feel confident is our key strength and our abiding aim. We will do our best to serve you with skill and enthusiasm to ensure that you leave feeling confident and fitted in an awesome bra!
Remember, confidence is always worth sharing and we can’t wait to share it with you. Here’s to another year.
