Did you know that 80% of women are wearing the wrong bra size! No wonder the majority of us are always adjusting, pulling and prodding! Well, admittedly, I’m one of the 80%. Since having my first child nearly six years ago, my boobs have changed from once being perky bandicoot noses to long flat “show me ya tits”, “do you really want me to lift my skirt?!”, flat mama jugs…
Both babies breastfed for a combined 16 months which has left them stretched, flat and blobby. Hell, I’m still wearing maternity bras even though I haven’t fed for over a year now just because they are comfy!!!
You see, I absolutely hate bra shopping! To me, it’s up there with other loathed “must dos” such as pap smears and eye brow waxing…all absolutely necessary but all absolutely eye ball rollingly off putting!
Now that I’m pregnant with my third though, I just can’t put this over the shoulder boulder holding shopping spree off any longer; the puppies have outgrown the kennel, it’s time to bite the bullet and find them a new home…Cue lingerie fitting queens, Lisa’s Lacies.
Lisa’s Lacies was founded by local Seaford #bosslady Lisa Medhurst in 1993 when Lisa personally struggled to find elegant, flattering lingerie for her size 26 curves so she resorted to designing and making it for herself. When she realized just how amazing it felt to have lingerie that fit properly and felt sexy, she decided to start making garments for other ladies like herself.
What was borne from a personal need, quickly turned into a passion. Lisa employed some seamstresses, bought some fabric and elastic and Lisa’s Lacies was born!
Fast forward 21 years and Lisa’s Lacies is now Australia’s only specialist retailer and manufacturer of lingerie, clothing and accessories catering for curvy women to size 40+. Australian made right here in Seaford! How cool is that!
I recently popped into Lisa’s Seaford store for a bra fitting with the lovely Marinda who talked me through just what to look for when purchasing a maternity bra and the results… well… lets just say the pups are now well and truly secure and loving their new comfy digs! Check out our vid!
