A Shopping Experience you’ll never forget
This one is for the ladies. We all know that shopping for a new bra can be quite traumatic, what with shape, size, colour, strapless, push-up, padded and wireless just a few of the decisions one must contend with. It's even more frustrating when you need something specific for a special outfit.
The Bra Lady
Enter The Bra Lady!
Michelle Turner is The Bra Lady and as she will tell you, she doesn't sell bras, she changes lives! According to most statistics, about 85% of women are wearing the wrong bra size. Now that is a lot of uncomfortable girls in the world. You don't have to put up with the indented shoulders or backache from lack of support any longer. All you need to do is take a trip down Prospect Road, just opposite Cibo and pop in and see Michelle.
It's true that getting a bra fitting is almost tantamount to visiting the gynaecologist. Baring all is one of the 'fun' parts of being a woman, but I promise you won't feel self-conscious or uncomfortable for a second.
From the minute you walk in the door, you'll feel like you're visiting with an old friend. The relaxed atmosphere that Michelle creates is like hanging out with your girlfriends in your bedroom when you were a teenager! The fitting rooms only enhance this feeling and the fact that Michelle has over thirty years' experience and is a qualified corsetiere makes the outcome truly amazing.
Fit for a Queen!
She will size you up, listen to your needs whether it be a special outfit, a sports bra or something to make you feel gorgeous and then she'll make her selections. She is adamant that size and body shape make no difference to her, she'll find you a garment that suits and having seen her in action, I can vouch for this.
Service is key
This is a full service boutique there is no wandering aimlessly. Help is at hand and it's not pushy or overbearing. Although if your current bra is atrocious you may be required to leave it in the bin, but it's for your own good.
The Bra Lady is also registered with many of the surgeons who deal with breast cancer patients and as a surgical fitter Michelle makes this very difficult time a little less horrible. She also provides an in-home service where required.
Gift Vouchers are available
Need a little more privacy? You can book a private fitting; this means just you and the Bra Lady in the shop. You can also book a girls' day or hen's party with nibbles and champagne to boot.
Live in the country? The Bra Lady is passionate about bringing her wares to you. She visits many field days including Lucindale, Paskeville and Cleve to name a few. She is heading to Kangaroo Island in June and if you would like her to come to your town, it's just a matter of getting in touch to find out what is required.
The Bra Lady is mobile, she'll come to you!
