I have always been in retail as a really enjoy helping women. I was working in general cosmetics but looking for more when I first heard about the job with Triumph. I went for it and 20 years on, have never looked back!
Seeing a woman leave wearing the bra I had just fitted her in, walking with confidence, a smile and a kick in her step!
I have so many memorable fitting experiences, but one of late would be a daughter and her mother. They came in I could see straight away the bra her mother was wearing was not right (I’ll explain more later!). They were after the Endless Comfort Wirefree Bra style, and asked for a size 18DD…just by looking I could see that size was not going to be right. I was very honest from the start, explaining how a fitting experience can really help her find the right style (and size) to suit her bust shape (which was quite low and under the arms so to speak). Once in the fitting room, she revealed how she had ripped the wire out of her current bra (a big no no!) and how long she has been wearing it (the bra had certainly had its day!!). I ended up fitting her into a 14F, which made her breasts look amazingly uplifted and sitting where they should be! She was so happy that she brought three, and wore one out! She could not thank me enough and told me how she didn’t realise how easy the experience would be.
My advice would be to not worry! We are all women, built all the same, with the same parts! I am there to do one job and that is to make your boobs look amazing!
Bras really only last 6-12 months depending on the amount of times you are wearing it so please always buy new ones or alternate the ones you use. If a bras wire is digging in, or its riding up the back, if straps are falling off shoulders, boobs falling out of the base or popping out of the cup…. it's NOT the bra! You have likely changed size – perhaps lost or put on weight, and therefore in need of a fitting!
Ladies you all need a bra wardrobe.... a bra for all occasions, but my go to bra would be Airy Sensation T-shirt bra. Its’ smooth spacer cup moulds to the breast, making it great for under t-shirts and comes in a great size range for all!
Customers are really loving the new Amourette Charm styles. I love the two-tone effect on the lace, it’s very pretty and feminine. The bra is super light and the lace is thinner making it appear smooth and invisible under clothes. It creates a lovely natural shape with comfortable support.
A strong triumphant woman to me is someone who isn't afraid to share her opinions and speak her truth! She listens, is filled with kindness, generosity, compassion, integrity and authenticity! No matter what she is true to herself.
