Women around the globe DREAD swimsuit shopping...no matter the time of year or the occasion; it is not something we enjoy. We are our own worst critics, so we can always find areas that we feel need improvement - -especially when we are faced with swimwear that just doesn't "fit" our curves properly. Most women that are over a "D Cup" in size need a little more support than the industry standard in swim offers. A piece of fabric S-T-R-E-T-C-H-E-D over our bosom does nothing to flatter our figure and in fact flattens what we have, often not offering ample coverage at all. So - what is a girl to do?
Bare Moxie sympathizes with the woman's plight and has specifically selected swimsuit styles that support women of ALL shapes and sizes in a stylish, flattering manner. If you are a 32F in a bra.....come into Bare Moxie and you can find a swimsuit in a 32F to fit you just right. This also rings true if you're a 36H. 40G, 34I - - whatever your size, it is our goal to make sure that you look and feel your VERY best, whether lounging by the pool or taking a dip in the ocean.
Bare Moxie carries a variety of swimwear year-round to best serve our customers. Stop in to see what we have in-store today, selected styles are on sale now as we prepare to welcome our 2018 selections (AND an entirely new line of products) to the store over the next several months. Don't "settle" for the best swimsuit you can find.....come to Bare Moxie and find the BEST swimsuit, designed to fit your curves!
You've heard us say it before but the stats just don't lie! EIGHT out of ten women are not wearing a properly sized bra today, which causes obvious overall discomfort but can also lead to so much more! The problem with fit, isn't due to women being poor shoppers....on the contrary...we know that ladies are doing the very best they can with the options they have available to them. Unfortunately, all stores and brands are not created equal - and if you have only shopped with larger, chain stores in the past - you are likely limited to what their corporate teams have determined is the "average" size for a American woman. This "corporate approach" is largely skewed and not really representative of the ACTUAL American Woman.
Did you know that the average breast size TODAY for an American Woman is a D? THAT IS JUST AVERAGE - - and so many of us are beyond average, which makes bra shopping a struggle! The problem is, if you are truly a 34G but are shopping at a store that only sells up to a DD in cup size; what are you to do? Most of the time, you "make do" - which means you will increase your band size by up to 4" (often ending around a size 38DD), because each time you increase that band size - you can "cheat" a bit and decrease the cup size. The issue with that is that you are sacrificing ALL of your support!! The band should be supporting 80% of your overall breast weight BUT when it is so large it is hardly touching your torso, it makes this job nearly impossible and places all of that weight squarely on your shoulders - - causing back pain, shoulder indents, and more PLUS if you are wearing underwire and an incorrect cup size, you run the risk of developing lumps and cysts on the breast tissue from the pressure of the wire being improperly positioned.
At Bare Moxie, we are honored to assist our clients in finding bras that actually FIT perfectly, because they come in all shapes and sizes. We don't believe you should have to alter your body to fit our bras; OUR bras have been specially selected by our owners to FIT YOU! So often, we have shoppers that literally ask us to cut off the tags from their new bras, as they discard their old ones into our trash bin...which got us to thinking....some of these are in really good shape - just not a good fit, could we find a way to donate them to someone in need??
So now we have! Bare Moxie has recently finished our very first charity drive with "Bra Recyclers" and our clients have been generous with their donations! All bras that have been donated will be cleaned and shipped to the "Bra Recyclers" to be distributed among local non-profit organizations to benefit women of all ages who need good, supportive undergarments.
As Ambassadors, Bare Moxie is happy to take your bra donations at any time thoughout the year and are thrilled to "lock arms" with an organization as driven to make a positive impact on the lives of women as we are!

Bare Moxie is not satisfied offering our clients the "status quo" in lingerie and swimwear. We are constantly striving to provide you with the hottest trends, colors, and styles while focusing on quality and support for EVERY woman! We do not believe that sitting in our boutique - in Geneva, IL - thumbing through catalogs is enough to bring extraordinary finds to our clients....it takes more.....so we DO more!!
For the past week one of our owners has been to the "Mode City" Show in Paris, France. Why Paris? PARIS is the undisputed fashion capital of the world and for lingerie and swim....it is THE place to see and be seen! Of course, it was reaffirming to run into several of the brands that we already carry in-store everyday. The excitement, however, was in finding several NEW brands that we will begin featuring in our store soon - brands that fill some of the style, sizing, or specialty requirements that we feel that we currently lack.
The upcoming season's color pallet is lovely - the patterns are bold and we are certain you will be delighted with what you see! Keep tuned in to Bare Moxie's FB Page for the latest on our NEW ARRIVALS!
Bare Moxie is a store that was designed to offer our clients beautiful, colorful, vibrant styles to brighten their lingerie drawer - no matter their shape or size. We scoff at the notion that women only want to wear black/white/nude undergarments; women want CHOICES, which is what Bare Moxie delivers! When we say, "There's always something NEW at Bare Moxie!" we mean it! Our fashion lines are selected to best reflect our client's taste and NEW selections arrive each month.
These two beauties have just arrived at our boutique this week! Introducing the "Sheer Bliss" (left) and "Smoothie Soul Mulberry" (right) collections - both from "Curvy Kate", based in the UK. Fun and flirty, these intimates are both comfortable and sleek in design - with the Smoothie Soul including the J-hook feature that our clients adore!
As one of our Owners prepares to head to lingerie's "fashion event" next week in Paris, we are SO EXCITED to see what new styles and trends will be heading your way next season! Bare Moxie is devoted to bringing the most elegant styles and designs to our clients everyday from around the globe!
Hurry in to "Find Your Curve" at Bare Moxie today!
Take a minute to listen to Bare Moxie Owners, Sonja and JoAnn, and learn more about all of the fabulous products and services that this intimate Geneva boutique has to offer! Stop in soon to visit Bare Moxie, "The Every Miss Boutique"!
When we say "Come experience the Bare Moxie difference", we really mean just that! For us, the ultimate compliment is when our customers are properly fitted by one of our "Certified Fitters" and are so delighted with the support and comfort that is found in wearing the correct size that they literally ask us to cut the tags off their new purchase, in the fitting room, so they can WEAR their new bra home!
It is estimated that 80% of women are currently wearing the wrong bra size. These women are not to blame - as a consumer, they have likely went to a department store/boutique and may have been assisted in finding their size by a clerk, or perhaps found their size by trial & error. The issue with these techniques is that in today's world, the average breast size in America is a D Cup. When most department stores don't sell bras above the cup size DD - this leaves a large portion of the population which is not being properly serviced. Often at these stores, they do the best they can - which typically means increasing your actual band size to larger than required - in an effort to accommodate you true cup size. Although visually this may work short-term, physically it is flawed. The band of your bra should bear 80% of your total breast weight and your straps just 20%. However, if your band has been increased in size - in order to accommodate your cup - you are sacrificing your support; and this is where we find women with sore necks, back pain, and shoulder issues. Another concern is that women you wear underwire bras and have settled for a smaller cup size than they actually require, run the risk of health issues, such as lumps and cysts on their breast tissue - as the underwire is designed to rest on the bone, not on the breast tissue itself.
At Bare Moxie, we begin where others leave off. We specialize in providing a wide-range of styles and sizing for cup sizes D - M and band sizes 28"-54" in store everyday (and can special order other sizes as well...). Here, YOU ARE NOT DEFINED BY YOUR SIZE. Our top priority is always your comfort and support and our "Certified Fitters" take pride in every customer that exclaims, "Wow - I cannot believe what a difference this bra makes!". Every woman's body is unique and that is why it's important for us to have a variety of sizes, styles and brands to choose from; it is our pleasure to help each woman "Find Their Curve" at Bare Moxie!
The Owners of Bare Moxie work tirelessly to bring in styles, and fits, that complement a wide range of body types, personal preference, and personalities. When we buy for our clients, it is intentionally an "International Affair" and we do carry several brands which originate from overseas. One brand that stand out - for it's FUN, flirtatious styling and color pallet is "Curvy Kate". This brand is designed with a focus on meeting the needs of the fuller breasted woman (D - K Cup) - which makes it a "natural fit" for Bare Moxie! Based in the London Burough of Harrow this lingerie firm has made their mark by setting the bar high! Priding themselves in being a lingerie firm designed for "real women" - it should come as no surprise that all of "Curvy Kate's" models are also their customers!! That's right - no runway models grace the pages of "Curvy Kate" brochures/catalogs/websites - these gorgeous ladies are all JUST LIKE YOU!! In fact, "Curvy Kate" runs an annual modeling competition - called "Star in a Bra" - where literally anyone could be discovered as the new face (and body) for" Curvy Kate"! (Keep your eyes peeled - this competition will be COMING to Bare Moxie, Summer 2017 - it will be YOUR chance to Shine!)
Stop in today to see all of the beautiful intimates and swimwear pieces that we have from "Curvy Kate"!
Helping our clients look great and feel fabulous is our primary goal at Bare Moxie. We absolutely LOVE when our customers put on a bra or swimsuit and get that sparkle in their eye - that tells us right away, "I LOVE my curves in this!" Even better, is intentionally providing some options, within our store, that help protect your skin from intense summer rays - keeping you looking younger, firmer and more supple.
Step inside and you will find a variety of chic hats to chose from, many with wide brims to help shade your delicate skin, as you enjoy the warm weather. We also carry several styles of swim cover-ups, sunglasses, along with SPF30 Sunscreen, and Sunless Tanner (so you can look like you've been basking in the sun - without the lasting effects of damaging UV Rays).
Skin protection year round is important, as UV Rays can cause damage to delicate skin in as little as 15 minutes. It has been proven that you greatly reduce your risk of skin damage by covering up a bit and using at least an SPF 15 sunscreen.
Play it safe and stylish this summer with treasured finds from Bare Moxie!
The only thing that differs in swimsuit design is the style and color, right? Wrong! At Bare Moxie, our swimwear is specifically designed to help you look your very best, whether you're lounging on the beach or chasing after the kiddos. Each swimsuit that we carry has been selected because it's designed is based on a bra frame, which means that sizing is determined by band and cup size (similar to your everyday bra). This individualized approach to your swimsuit deisgn will provide you with maximum support and comfort while offering the best fit and most flattering silhouette.
