Everyone always asks how we got started.  It is a simple story that I am sure many of you can relate to. 

One day as I was shopping for my Bridal undergarments I was extremely frustrated as nothing seemed to fit just right and the things that did work were just not me.  They didn't make me feel sexy or confident.  The two things a woman should always feel.  Confident in her own skin and sexy (regardless of her size).  However I honestly believe the sexiest thing on a woman is her confidence. 

After I heard the local lingerie store was closing its doors and somebody telling me "No" you can't run a lingerie store that just empowered me to do whatever possible to follow my dream.  Now I always dreamt of having my own Fashion Boutique and even as a young teenager I was obsessed with cute lingerie so it just seemed like the perfect fit. 

So on a whim I decided to open my doors with a very small line of credit not having any idea what I was doing..  All I knew is that I loved what I was doing..  I wanted to empower women and I wanted everyone to feel fantastic and comfortable when they came in.  I spent the next 6 months in research for lines, trends and anything that could benefit me while trying to be a wife and a mother to 2 very small children. 

Each year brought more knowledge, new lines and more experience.  Holding 5 Certifications on bra fitting and endless amounts of training each year to stay current with techniques and trends I wouldn't change it for the world.  I am also very fortunate to get to experience the travel and training with all my ladies who work with me as we all do together and learn together as without them I wouldn't be where I am today. 

Well 18 years later and 2 expansions of my first store and 4 stores later I am still here doing what I love and so very grateful for everyone that has come into my life during this time.  Everyday I am thankful for my fantastic staff who are now family and the faithful and dedicated customers.
