As a certified bra fitter, in addition to education and training, a person needs judgment and a good eye to perform this job well.
Our clients are women who have had right, left or bilateral breast removals. Lumpectomies remove portions of the breast and we can restore the proper balance by finding the right prostheses to fill in missing areas. Our job is to first measure to find the right size bra for her and find the right prosthesis to fit in the bra’s pockets. Customers choose what kind of bra they prefer from the variety of colors and styles we stock at Lynn’s Boutique.
Having the right prosthesis inside a properly fitted bra is a confidence-builder that makes a tremendous difference in a woman’s comfort and appearance. We go above and beyond to provide customer satisfaction. Each woman we see has a different story to tell and we treat each one as an individual.
Seeing the smiles and tears of joy on our clients’ faces is what makes this job so rewarding. Women have told us they never thought they could look like this again or, “I have my femininity back!” Sometimes we cry together and often, we laugh.
Appointments are required for fittings to ensure each person is allotted enough time without feeling rushed.
