The Fitting Room Opens in Grayslake, Illinois
“As soon as I walked into The Fitting Room, I felt at home in the comfort of the small, intimate setting that is so charming with its unique vintage decor.” – Lisa Kristoffersen, customer
A few shorts weeks after its grand opening, The Fitting Room in downtown Grayslake is doing a brisk business, catering to women who want personalized attention in selecting lingerie, and men who are looking for the perfect intimate gift. Located in one of the oldest homes in historic downtown Grayslake, The Fitting Room has a vintage charm all on its own. Antique furniture, fresh flowers, warm lighting, velvet curtains, and burning candles compliment the original hard wood floors, large windows and historic workmanship. Scattered throughout the shop, you’ll find everything from sexy lingerie and loungewear to basic bras, panties and shape wear.
“Aside from educating women on the fit, wear, and care of lingerie, Bex’s number one goal is to make women feel beautiful and confident, and she knows this can be achieved with well-fitted foundations”, states her Assistant, Tess Anderson. “Her hope is that by creating an opportunity for women to get fittings and products in a way that’s fun, convenient and affordable, she can educate and transform more women than ever before.” Tess continues, “Bex — who has years of experience in the lingerie industry — is proud to offer individualized service to every client.”
The Fitting Room is a stylish and elegant lingerie boutique offering much needed professional bra fitting services and intimate wear in a large range of sizes (bras up to N cup size), styles and pricing so that wearing comfortable AND beautiful lingerie is affordable. Unfortunately, 75% – 80% of women are wearing incorrectly fitting bras, according to a lingerie industry statistic. Many women believe it is normal for their breasts to pop out of the bottom of their bra, the band to ride up their back, the cups to be gappy, and the straps to fall down. A correct fitting bra will not present any of these problems and the women who have been expertly fit by Bex, enjoy better fitting clothes and exude a new confidence in themselves all because they now wear bras that have been properly measured and sized.
“I am so happy to finally be wearing a bra that makes me feel good all over, thanks to Bex!”
Lisa Kristoffersen, a recent customer at the boutique commented, “As soon as I walked into The Fitting Room, I felt at home in the comfort of the small, intimate setting that is so charming with its unique vintage decor.” She added, “I am so happy to finally be wearing a bra that makes me feel good all over, thanks to Bex!” Another customer, Lesley Brual expressed, “The lingerie items look beautiful displayed on the antique furniture.” Lesley was impressed with her experience at the boutique and said “The fitting by Bex was comfortable and fun… It was exciting to find a beautiful bra that fit perfectly!” Both of these women conveyed their eagerness to return to the lovely boutique and shop for more items such as panties, foundations/shapewear, other lingerie, and accessories.
