I have to admit that I am kind of a bra junkie, so when I was offered the opportunity to get a professional bra fitting and a complementary new bra to add to my collection, I was ecstatic. Meet In the Mood Intimates, a fabulous little shop right in the Brick Walk shopping center in Fairfield. This shop is the cutest thing I have ever seen! If you are looking for one stop shopping for all of your undergarments, this is the place to go.
Online Meets Brick and Mortar:
Although the store has been open only a few short months, owner Karen has been running the shop as a successful online business for over twelve years. Her passion is evident in everything from the bra fittings to the overall shopping experience. She wants women to feel fabulous when they leave the store with a new bra. Since there really isn’t anything like this in Fairfield County at the moment, Karen seized the opportunity to bring this successful online business to life right here in Fairfield.
In the Mood Intimates carries every band size from 28-44 and A-L cup sizes IN STORE. Yes, that means they almost positively have something in your size right there in the store. Band size larger than that? No problem! They are still able to fit you and order styles for you through size 54. You say you don’t need a new bra? We beg to differ! They have underwear from Hanky Panky and Commando, Swimwear, sports bras, nursing bras, and maternity. Let’s not forget the hosiery and shapewear for special occasions! Looking for something a little more sexy for your boudoir? They have you covered there too.
The Bra Fitting:
Not only is this store stocked with great merchandise, you can guarantee that you will be measured by a CERTIFIED bra fitter. I went in with my everyday bra and was whisked into a private dressing room for a quick and efficient fitting. My lovely little bra angel asked me what style of bras I liked, what colors I typically wore, and came back with four different styles for me to try. After each style, she came in to adjust the band or cup size (if needed) and to make sure the straps were properly adjusted. Three of the four bras were awesome, with one style just simply not for me. All fit amazing, despite my the size being way different than what I was expecting.
Don’t Look at My Rolls:
One of the great things about the fitting is that Karen was sure to tell me about the no-judgment zone in the fitting rooms. Ladies, you know that awkward feeling when you are standing there with all your glorious pregnancy weight hanging over your jeans? Yeah well not in this dressing room! Karen doesn’t want any woman to feel uncomfortable about her size or shape that she demands no negative body talk. Roll in there in all your postpartum glory and I guarantee you will walk out of there feeling like a queen.
Just Do It:
If this hasn’t convinced you to get over there and explore the beautiful collection of bras and undergarments they have to offer, I don’t know what will. Pricing is anywhere from $45-$89, but who can put a price tag on an instant lift? If you would like a bra fitting, no appointment is necessary, but feel free to give a call and grab a slot. Well, what are you waiting for? It’s time for mama to treat herself to something fabulous!
