How The Buxom Beauty was created:
I used to be the person who often said, "I hate my bra." What I didn't realize is that I had never received a proper bra fitting, and my cup size was too large for what most stores offered. I was instead encouraged by sales associates to try "whatever is close enough," or (my personal favorite) my "sister size." I was completely unaware that I was continually given bad information and fit in a size much different than what I should have been wearing. As a result, I hated shopping (zero confidence in the way I looked) and I was plagued by poor posture and shoulder pain. When I finally received a proper fitting by a bra fit professional, all of that changed. I realized that I had been wearing bras one band size too large and 4 cups too small. What a difference it made to finally feel confident in my size!
Unfortunately, department stores and larger bra retailers lack significant availability of large cup bras in most cities- many of them have a variety of options for A-C cup, but larger cups sizes are difficult to find.
As I began talking to friends and family, I realized that I was not alone in this, and the idea for The Buxom Beauty was conceived. As a certified bra fit specialist, I believe that every woman deserves to feel confident and comfortable in her bra!
