All About Bra Fittings
If you haven’t had a bra fitting in a while, or even if you’ve never been properly fit for a bra, the time has come to find out what a huge difference a good bra can make to your figure, wardrobe, and confidence! Don’t worry about having a stranger in the fitting room with you. We have seen and heard just about everything you can imagine! Our goal is to make you feel comfortable and empower you to make an informed purchase you’ll feel confident about.
What do I need to know before I come for a bra fitting?
Bra fittings are always free of charge, and appointments aren’t necessary. So come on in! We suggest giving yourself plenty of time for a fitting, at least half an hour, in order to allow us to meet all of your needs. Also come with an open mind about sizes, styles, and colours. You may not buy the size you expected to, and you just may fall in love with something you weren’t expecting to! Be prepared to leave the store feeling empowered, sexy and confident!
How much does a bra cost?
We offer great-quality bras starting at $45 for brands including Calvin Klein and Montelle Intimates. Most of our bras fall in the $80-$130 range depending on the brand, decorative details, and other variables. We always stock a selection of high-end premiere brands including PrimaDonna which are definitely worth the investment!
Remember that a bra is a highly engineered garment that is the foundation in your wardrobe. Take care of your bra and you will see why you really do get what you pay for. When you’re shopping with us, let your bra fitter know if you have a budget; we are more than happy to ensure that you leave with something you love and can afford.
How long will my new bra last?
The answer to this question depends on a few factors:
- How you care for your bras. We have some great tips here on how to take care of your bras and lingerie to maximize their lifespan.
- How many bras are in your regular rotation. Wearing the same bra every day means it will wear out rather quickly. We suggest having at least three bras that you rotate through regularly. The more bras the own, the longer they all last.
- The quality of materials and construction. Buying the best bra you can afford means it will last longer. Three $100 bras will last longer than 10 $30 bras.
Do you carry my size?
There’s something for just about everybody at Esprit de la Femme. Band sizes range 30-44. We carry many bra styles A-H cup with select styles available I-N cup! If you’re a hard-to-fit size, chances are we have something that will fit and make you feel beautiful.
How does a bra fitting work?
At Esprit de la Femme, we don’t believe that a measuring tape will give an accurate idea of what bra size you need. Instead, we understand that not only are you and your breasts one-of-a-kind, but all bras are manufactured to different standards. This is why we will take the time and care to fit each and every bra to you.
First, your fitter will ask you a few questions about the size you currently wear and what your expectations are for your new bra. Feel free to inform us about any special concerns or questions you may have. Are your underwires poking you? Straps falling off your shoulders? Two different sized breasts? The more information you can give us, the better we can help you.
Next, is the fun part (we promise!) — Trying on bras! Because each bra and customer are unique, your fitter will adjust the bras properly and bring you different sizes and styles as needed. Your bra fitter is your ally in navigating the crazy world of bra sizes and styles, so let us do the hard work. Satisfaction with your purchase is our top priority, and it’s important for us to make sure the bra you choose is a bra you love to wear!
