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!
