Kim’s Health and Wellness Journey

January 6, 2017
Happy New Year!
It is the time for new beginnings, new goals and resolutions. What did you resolve to do this year?
One of the most common New Year’s Resolutions is to lose weight, and although I don’t specifically resolve to lose weight, the turn of a new year always reminds me to set intention to focus on health and wellness.
As you can imagine, we help every shape, size and age of women in our fitting rooms.  Over time we get to watch our clients go through various transformations. Some get married and have children, and others we see at various times throughout their weight loss journey. A few years ago after chatting with a client in the fitting room about her journey to lose weight, I took a big leap and hired a personal trainer on the recommendation of my client. I was terrified at first, like many of our first-time clients are, but working out with my personal trainer, Kimi, by my side has been one of the most rewarding, confidence-boosting experiences of my life, similar to my first bra-fitting experience.
Over the course of three years, and a few train derailments later (hey, I wouldn’t be human if I didn’t fail every once in a while), I’ve developed a very personal view on health and wellness from my days at the gym with Kimi. I am still not the thinnest I have ever been, but I would say I am the strongest I have ever been – physically and mentally. It makes me feel strong when I can go farther, harder or faster than I did the week or month before, and I have learned that when you feel strong, you feel confident! Fitness for me doesn’t equal a specific number on the scale or size in my closet. It doesn’t mean that I can’t indulge in my sweet tooth or have that glass of wine. It means making conscious decisions to live a happy and health conscious life, and forgetting the pressure of my inner voice telling me I should be a certain weight or size.
The core of what my trainer, Kimi, and I do on a daily basis is very similar. Simply put, we help others feel more confident, just in different ways. I am so grateful to have such a warm and encouraging coach by my side through my journey!
PS: The most important workout gear in my experience:
  1. Proper Sports Bra
  2. Proper Shoes

Healthy Non-Surgical Solution for Aging Breasts

September 15, 2016

You’ve got curves.

You’re frustrated with trying to ‘fit the mold’ or ‘conform to standards’ when it comes to lingerie sizing.

You’re sick of being uncomfortable and tired of putting up with poorly fitting lingerie that prevents you from looking and feeling totally confident in every way.

You’re not alone. In fact, if you’re over 40, you may be noticing some major changes in your breasts, such as:

  • Loss of fullness
  • Loss of firmness
  • Loss of flattering lines

Sure, it’s a fact of life: gravity, breastfeeding, lack of proper support, and lower levels of estrogen can make the girls head south. But the good news is they don’t have to stay there – and our non-surgical solution will leave you feeling like a Prima Donna!

Support for Prima Donnas

If you’re a plus-size woman, chances are you’ve been struggling to find the proper support you need and deserve. It’s not that you’re really a Prima Donna, but wouldn’t it be nice to be treated with the same respect that those with average curves seem to get?

Why should luxurious, beautiful bras in all sorts of dreamy colors and styles be reserved for the ‘less-endowed’?

The answer is: They shouldn’t! And now… they no longer are.
