“Your best shape begins with a great foundation”
Are you wanting to look and feel better in your clothes? Are you looking to be professionally fit for a breast form, bra or shapewear garment to create a smooth silhouette?
In 2009, after working in the custom sewing and alteration business for 13 years, I began having requests for specially modified or custom constructed swimwear and accessories for women who have had breast surgery. Upon researching this a little further I noticed a need, not only for better selection with regards to swimwear, but a need for women to have a private and pleasant atmosphere to be serviced for breast prostheses and other post mastectomy products.
In 2010 I decided to move on to helping women who have had breast surgery find the choices they deserve and Designed For Living Mastectomy Boutique, now known as Fitting You, became a reality. Having had many years custom fitting and altering all types of clothing the experience and knowledge gained has been immense. It is my desire to offer the same professional, friendly and compassionate service that has given me the solid reputation that I have today. Trained as a certified fitter, and from past experience, I am ready to give you the one on one personal attention and work with you to find all of your post mastectomy products.
Due to the intimate nature of the business I am available for fittings and private consultations through pre-scheduled appointments to ensure strict confidentiality. As a friend and relative of breast cancer survivors, I understand the physical and emotional needs that women may experience when making these choices. I have been trained in Nero- Linguistic Programming (NLP), which has provided great insight into the special needs associated with dealing with the emotions that come along with this issue. It has given me the ability to experience true compassion for others, especially when it comes to helping them. I want to help you make the right choices when it comes to your mastectomy wear so when wearing a bra and breast prostheses you’ll feel more like yourself again… comfortable, confident and reassured!
Early in 2014 I began to have requests to do professional bra and shapewear fittings for all ladies, especially for those who were “non mastectomy”. I began thinking of a way to incorporate this service into my existing business. It became apparent very quickly that it was a service that was a definite need, and with my passion to help women I knew it would be something of great benefit. I also realized that the name of my business would have to be changed to incorporate this additional service that would be welcoming to ALL ladies.
So, after much thought and consideration, I decided to change the name to Fitting You and incorporate a bra and shapewear fitting division and a mastectomy division. I am thrilled to launch this new part of my business and excited to show you how great you will look and feel.
