I hate when people tell me, “Don’t be shy.” It’s the kind of advice that falls flat even when it’s offered with the best intentions, because well, it's just not that easy. Being shy in such a hectic world can be tough, but there are times when it can be especially stressful. Getting fitted for a bra is one of those times. So, in honor of all the shy people out there, the BOB team decided to share some advice that may help alleviate your worries. Next time you gear up to get fitted for that perfect bra, take a few minutes to brush up on these 7 easy tips.
If you've visited our retail store or taken the time to peruse the ins and outs of our website, you know we believe in fit above all else. For that reason, Melissa hand-selects every bra that comes through the Breakout Bras warehouse, choosing only the best fitting styles from the best manufacturers. As part of our ongoing commitment to fit, we’re kicking off a series of Brand Bio blogs to better acquaint our customers with the brands they love—their origins, fit philosophies, strengths, and weaknesses. We’ll be taking an honest look at what works, what doesn’t, and which brands are best for whom. We begin our Brand Bio series with Panache, a company we’ve worked with for years.
