In recent weeks, it's felt like everyone has been quite concerned, all of a sudden, with my breasts. Was I wearing the right size? Ws I getting the most support? Was my bra working as hard for me, essentially, as it should be? I found the answers to these queries and more in an hour-long lingerie fitting at Journelle.
Tucked into a side street near Union Square, Journelle's a quiet and luxurious reprieve for the lingerie-obsessed. Carrying an assortment of international brands ranging from Eberjey to Stella McCartney to Chantelle, their fit specialists generally have one mission and one mission alone - to get you/me/everyone into a better fitting and more beautiful bra. Noble, yes?
Bra fittings can be quite surprising, so brace yourself accordingly if you plan to visit a specialist (and you should - every six months, if you can abide by it). Journelle moved me from a 34B to a 32D in most styles, and I realized that despite my love of soft cup styles like this spicy little number from La Fee Verte, I really do best (read: look and feel my best) in structured lace styles like the Elle Macpherson babes seen above (her nickname wasn't 'The Body' for nothing; mmmkay?), OR this gloriously sexy C Chic Lace Demi Bra from Chantelle ($68):
Can you even? I mean, I can't. But, on second thought - I CAN and I WILL.
Pop into Journelle for an expert fitting if you're in the neighborhood (it might just change your life) - or simply explore their decadent assortment online here.
