“it’s what’s underneath that counts"
Trina reflects on her journey to becoming a bra-fitting entrepreneur…
As a teenager, I can remember my grandmother instilling the importance of wearing the RIGHT bra regardless of your shape or bra size. If you didn’t have on a good bra, my grandmother would often say, “it looks like your breasts are going to bed!”
As an adult, I began to embrace my bra size and concluded that my boobs weren’t going anywhere without some type of intervention. I embraced my bra size! However, I was always frustrated when shopping at various department stores and not finding my size or anyone to assist with such a daunting task. I then became a frequent customer of a bra specialty shop that offered bra fitting. The bra specialty shop offered the basic black, beige and white bras. I used to wonder, how do women who need special sizing really feel with just wearing the basic bra colors?
Then I realized I am not the only one suffering from a lack of options. One day, my husband said, we need to take Ashley, my stepdaughter, who was a teenager at the time, to find a good bra. I said, Oh I know, let’s take her to the bra specialty shop where I shop. Well, as you can imagine, a teenager didn’t want what the specialty shop was offering – the “ole lady bras.”
It became even more apparent to me, we need pretty, supportive bras for full-figure, full busted customers to include the new era of curvy teenagers while continuing to educate about the importance of wearing the right bra – YES…including the “ole lady bras.” Customers deserve a fabulous bra fitting experience, if so desired, and quality merchandise - OPTIONS! Hence, faBRAlous fits was created!
Today, the bra specialty shop that I used to frequent no longer exists and faBRAlous fits is increasingly being called upon for its professional bra-fitting services and quality merchandise. Throughout the last 14 years while working with customers in the MD, DC and VA areas, I have learned a valuable lesson taught by my grandmother, “it’s what’s underneath that counts.” The RIGHT bra will not only improve your overall quality of life and appearance, but it will make you feel feminine and uplifted for years to come!
