Yesterday I was able to go to the grand opening of the very first stand-alone Maidenform store in the US in Glen Mills, PA. I’ve been to their outlets before, but this was a very different experience! I got my complimentary bra sizing which – surprise! – I was wearing the wrong size bra. Maybe that’s why all the bras I tried on were so comfortable… they actually fit me properly!
(Sidebar: Seriously, ladies, get a bra fitting. It takes 2 minutes, is free and is key to getting a proper fit. And we all know that proper underthings make you look better!)
Anyway, back to Maidenform, I loved seeing the variety of styles and fits they offered. Everything was lovely, well-made and all bras were under $40 and panties were around $10. Uber-affordable!
I tried on every type of bra they had! They were all unique and it was hard to decide which was my favorite. The Dream Collection was heavenly – and was my favorite until I tried the Comfort Devotion Collection! Then nothing else would do. It was soft, seamless and so comfortable. And I just had to buy two of the Comfort Devotion Demi Bra – they fit perfectly and looked amazing! (And remember, when you find a good bra ALWAYS BUY TWO. You will kick yourself later if you don’t. The same rule applies to the perfect pair of jeans.)
And you must must must try the Comfort Devotion Panties – these are so light and soft, its like you’re wearing nothing at all. And they are completely seamless – with zero elastics or binding. And at $9, totally worth every penny!
And ladies, meet your new best friend. Flexees. This is – no exaggeration – the best shapewear I’ve ever seen. It is super lightweight and soft as silk – but offers firm control that doesn’t make you feel like a sausage. It is by far the most comfortable shapewear I’ve ever worn – and when when I was wearing it under my clothes, it stayed in place – no rolling or bunching up – and worked really well! I was doubtful it was strong enough to really smooth and shape, but it really was! I wanted every single thing in the line, but I sprung for the mother of all shapers… the singlet. For when I need to bring out the big guns!
If you’re local to Philly, check out Maidenform in Glen Mills, PA, VERY soon.
I loved the store, the staff, the products and the whole shopping experience. I was so impressed with the quality I saw at such reasonable prices – definitely will be back!
Have you ever had a bra fitting? Where you wearing the wrong size, too?
