You're wearing the wrong bra size

Posted

The statistics show that most women are wearing the wrong size bra. Let’s face it, it is definitely easier to just walk into a store and leave as quickly as possible with the one that we think fits the best. This tendency may be partially out of pure convenience, but it’s also due to lack of knowledge in realizing what a well-fitting bra actually feels like when you put it on. Well, now you can kiss these excuses goodbye because Wendy Radin and her East Greenwich lingerie boutique A Fitting Experience can make the process of searching for the perfect undergarment a painless one.

Located in the Benny’s plaza off of Post Road, the boutique that specializes in fine lingerie and bra fittings for every body type may look small, but it is certainly hard to miss. The vibrant purple door and large windows make for a very inviting atmosphere. Upon entering, you could feel overwhelmed by the amount of options in the shop, but Wendy and all her helpful expertise quickly change that. After a proper fitting, you can choose from brands like Anita, Chantelle, Le Mystere, Natori and Wacoal.

Wendy says that she realizes that a lot of women are wearing the wrong size bra, so the fittings are mainly what she focuses on. She opened her shop in 2008 when she felt that there was a need for a place for women to come and have a proper fitting in a comfortable environment with personal service and attention. In addition, Wendy is also known for her specialty in mastectomy fittings. Wendy originally started A Fitting Experience as an in-home service for women who have had breast cancer. She loves to give women a chance to feel like their pre-mastectomy selves again while most importantly giving their self-confidence an enormous boost. A wide selection of post-surgery bras and prostheses are available.

Although these fittings are a large part of the “fitting experience,” the boutique also offers a selection of undergarments for both special occasion and everyday. The store is the place for bridal or prom needs and carries the newly beloved Spanx products. With the high demand that is out for what many call a must have in a wardrobe, Spanx are in full supply here with an entire section to choose from.

A Fitting Experience is the perfect place for women to tend to the necessities that they may not pay enough attention to, and to find something that will make you feel special no matter what. Wendy’s motto says it best: “Love your body, love yourself. Accept yourself the way you are and do not be so hard on yourself – no one is perfect.”
