Who am I?

Have you heard that statistic about 8 out of 10 women are wearing the wrong bra size?  I was one of those women!  It was especially shocking as I've been fitted by young women at a popular lingerie store, middle aged women at specialty stores and old women at high end department stores. 

After a few years of being on bra hiatus (called nursing), I decided it was time for proper bras again.  Nothing seemed to fit quite right.  The bras were too big, too small, etc, etc.  A few months after my newest (and best fitting bra) left me with angry red marks in the center of my chest, I happened to come across DIY bra sewing.  It had never occurred to me to sew my own bras before despite years of sewing experience!  One taste and I was hooked.

While the creative aspect of sewing and designing bras certainly appealed to me, the psychological effects of a well fitting bra were astounding.  Post-nursing breasts were no longer saggy - the result of lifting tissue off the belly left the distinct impression of WEIGHT LOSS - which immediately resulted in lifted spirits.  Not to mention no more pain from underwires and in not-so-boring colors and textures!  And so, a company was born to share the joy!
