Organizing underwear today I had this conversation1.
Me: “So, how many bras do you think a woman needs?”
Beautiful, Curvy Client: “A normal woman, or me?”
Me: “Good point… You.”
Beautiful, Curvy Client: “This one is my favorite, but the straps slide off. I wear this one a lot but not if the blouse is tight because of back fat. This one! Oh! I have to have this one because my husband gave it to me.”
Me: “Does it fit?”
BCC: “I think so.”
Me: “Have you been fitted for your correct size by a PRO-fessional?”
BCC: “No. When I go into Victoria’s Secret no one seems anxious to do that for me.”
Me: “Try the Nordstrom in the Glendale Galleria. The manager of Intimate Apparel is Sandra Maravilla, I send everyone to her. I’ll be taking my daughter to her when the time comes. Anyway, Sandra will change your life.”
BCC: “Change my life? Sure she will.” <rolls eyes>
Me: “Believe me. No adjusting for the rest of your waking hours. And you can dance a little, maybe even skip, and things aren’t going anywhere!
“Sandra is really good at her job. She is the least judge-y woman you’ll ever find in a Nordstrom. I told her I wanted to buy bras that were on sale since I needed to re-stock at my new, improved size. She went out and found me every bra in my new size that was on sale in jewel tones. You wanna see?2”
So, pro-organizer tip #1: Get your girls sized and you will walk a little taller from now on.
Organizing tip #2: If you own bras that don’t fit, THROW THEM OUT. (Yes, I’m yelling.)
1How glamorous am I, BTW?
2I didn’t show my bra to my client. Calm down.
