Intimacy - best bras and bra fitting. I have never been a girl to enjoy shopping for bras. It was always
So, So. I'll give them 3 stars because they were nice. But I didn't understand the whole "organic sizing" and not tape measure sizing. They sell European bras in European sizes. If you want padding or lift, that's ALOT extra. The average bra is $85-$111 and that's probably on the low-medium price range. The staff are nice and helpful, but the bras are very weird and over priced. I still didn't understand the sizing when I got in there.
Go for fitting only, don't expect much. I had previously been going to "The Bra Specialist" but they went out of business so I tried to try Intimacy since I had heard about them on the radio. I am very hard to fit so I have to shop at a specialty store. I went here expecting first class service. My service was amazing until about 30 minutes into my fitting. I was very straight forward with my sales consultant, Najoua, about what I wanted. She helped me try on lots of bras but then I guess she got busy. She left me in the dressing room waiting on two separate occasions for 15-20 minutes each time. When I told her I had finally picked a bra I just needed two of them in nude, she told me that I had to choose white or orange! I told her that wouldn't work for me to which she replied, "well, you didn't like the nude ones so those are your choices"! Seriously?!?! I was ready to spend $400 that day! She just lost a fat commission. I went online and found a site where I can get the bras cheaper. Unfortunately for Intimacy they lost a customer that day.
Definately not worth it. I was very upset to find out that all the advertising was a big lie, especially hearing it from the Rula and Ryan show!!!!! I spent almost $700 after purchasing a sports bra, 2 bras, 2 underwear, and washing powder which is just sitting in my laundry room and only used 2 times. Rula said your posture would improve and fitting is great. Sorry, but my back still hurts and the underwire that they say is suppose to be close to your chest is very uncomfortable! I usually wear a DD at VS and they sized me to be an E. Do not purchase anything from this store! It will be a waste of your time and money!
I loved my fit!. I had a wonderful experience here. I love my new bras and they give me such great lift. They are priced higher than your Victoria Secret shops, or department stores, but let's be real.... The stuff is 100 times better! I can't believe someone had a bad experience here. It is definately high end shopping so if you wouldn't feel comfortable in LV, Dior, or Chanel don't bother. It's not for cheapies.
Not what I was expecting.....
I went over the weekend, and I was expecting what you see on TV, bras eveywhere. Well I am big breasted and there were only small little bras on the wall which there are only 15 if that hanging on the walls.
I got two bra's beacuse when you try them on you have them on your body for about 2 mins IF THAT, and then you take them off. Well I bought them and the underwire is unbareable. It just rub's your skin and digs into your ribs. I went back the next day they told me that you have to get use to them it could take a MONTH.
That is bull, I should have never bought anything from them.
They had little nighties that were 130 bucks seriously that is crazy!
They try and sell you everything, Bra's Panties, Sports Bras, Tank top with bra in it. EVERYTHING IN THE STORE.
BE SURE YOU KNOW WHAT YOU ARE BUYING!!! YOU CAN NOT RETURN ANYTHING, ONLY STORE CREDIT!!!!!! THEY KNOW THEY HAVE BAD THINGS IF THEY THOUGHT THEY HAD GOOD ITEMS THEY WOULD LET YOU RETURN THEM!!!!
YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!!!!!!!!!!!
Not worth it. I heard wonderful things about their bra fittings and bras in general. I also heard that if I didn't like something, I could even return it free of charge via UPS. I booked my fitting and thought I would probably splurge on just one bra for now because I heard they also get very expensive. I got there, and nobody looked up at me. My fitter took me into the room and told me to take my top off. She told me everything that was wrong with my current bra, but also told me that I didn't know what I was doing. She instructed me to take my bra off and then pointed out where I was doing tissue damage and that I was causing my breasts to sag. For being topless with a woman moments after meeting her, she was not even attempting to be polite or friendly. She brought 7 bras and then told me to try on a sports bra even though I said I did not want one. She grilled me on my bra care technique and said that I have to know what I am doing or I will ruin my bras. The fitting did show me that I was wearing the wrong size, so I thought I would look around to find something I want. What was on the wall was not available in most sizes and what was available had no color options. Then, the icing on the cake came when I actually did choose to buy a bra to see if the new fit really did make a difference and I was told they don't do refunds after I'd been charged $92 for one bra (the lowest priced one available in my size). After all that, I was asked again if I really didn't need any of their wash and after I declined she said okay and then (begrudgingly) said she would throw a few sample packs in there. The bra fitting may give you some helpful insight on what to look for when you shop for bras, but its not worth the money to try and find a bra there.
