INTIMACY Daphne MarieJo Bra

Having recently spent the afternoon with the lovely ladies of INTIMACY on Madison Avenue, I have a new found respect for the perfect bra fit. In the past, I would dismiss the saleswomen at department stores and lingerie boutiques, confidently believing I knew my own bra size. Oh, was I mistaken! The INTIMACY experience, as it is coined, is indeed eye opening. After my expert fit session, I left with a lovely lingerie set and invaluable insight on perfecting your bra fit, not to mention realizing I was wearing a completely incorrect size! After my bra epiphany, the stylists provided some experts tips on finding the best bra fit and lingerie styles for every shape and size. Fantasie_Durban_red

Believe it or not, 85% of women wear the wrong bra size and they do not know it. The INTIMACY bra specialist also noted that a woman’s body can change up to six times in her lifetime whether from having a baby, the loss of weight or just general change in fitness routines.  It is ideal to have a fitting twice a year to make sure you are wearing the correct size.  Whether a size AA or DD, women of every shape and size can benefit from a bra or swim fit appointment at INTIMACY. You will be instantly enlightened on the fit options and will leave feeling more confident and comfortable with your body. INTIMACY expert stylists have mastered the art of matching the ideal lingerie and swimwear to every woman’s unique body and style, providing them with choices that are exquisitely designed and accentuate their curves in all the right places. INTIMACY carries the finest European lingerie and swimwear collections available in over 90 sizes (ranging from A to K cup).



Chic, feminine and expertly crafted collections including Andres Sarda, Aubade, Chantelle, Empreinte, Marie Jo, Marie Jo L’Aventure, PrimaDonna, PrimaDonna Twist are carried at boutiques throughout NYC, Philadelphia, Boston, Miami and even San Diego.


TIPS from Intimacy expert, Nicole Willis:

- You should never wear your bra 2 days in a row.  It keeps them from stretching out as quickly.
- 80% of your support comes from your band.
- The wire should always lay flat against your chest.  If not, it means the bra is too small.
- Never buy a bra based on the tightest band fit, as they stretch out.
