Why does it take 30 minutes for a bra fitting?

Customers sometimes wonder why it takes 20-30 minutes for a bra fitting. Well, the short answer is that we don't just measure. We try on different style, brand, size and determine the best fit, support and shape for your body. We will adjust on you every single bra from straps to band and will let you know why it fits or doesn't fit. You will try between 10-15 bras within your size range. Some customers come in with different concerns -sagging or uneaven breast (very common), straps digging or underwire poking- every one is different. We do our best to address your concerns and make sure you are happy with the fit and your purchase.

New Fall Collection from Simone Perele

Insider preview of Fall collections with Simone Perele.

We are expecting several collections from Simone Perele this Fall: Illusion, Merveille, Tresor and Avant Premiere.

Here's a sneak preview of what to expect. Please note that with many Simone Perele fashion collections this Fall we will not be able to re-order so make sure you come in early or call us to hold your size.

Simone Perele Illusion: Why we like it? We love the dramatic layering effect and geometric lace. Customers who want a new black bra with "a punch" will definitely enjoy this collection. Perele Illusion (Black/Skin)
Simone Perele Merveille: Why we like it? This collection is stylishly bold and daring. We love the subtle animal print design. It's chic and classy which sometimes can be difficult when you mix animal print. We guarantee this one will sell out fast.

Simone Perele Tresor: Why we like it? We love the contrast of the light (Ivory) and dark (black). The pleats are also unusual.

Simone Perele Tresor (Black)
Simone Perele Avant Premiere (Grey):  This collection is one of our best selling collection. Customers seem to like it because it is femine, delicate and timelessly elegant.

From 38DD to 36H bra size: Yes, we see it all the time!

"A full busted women wearing the wrong bra size can do serious damage to her back and neck. A well fitting bra will alleviate the weight on your shoulder and improve your posture. If your straps are digging into your shoulders and leaving marks. try a smaller band size and a deeper cup"

FACT: 90% of the support of the bra comes from the band not the straps.

"Bras are personal but also technical, ask a professional for help".

Book your bra fitting appointment ONLINE today and see how the right bra will change how you look and feel!

Stylish Nursing Bras in Washington, DC

Gone are the days when maternity bras were cumbersome and unflattering. We are so excited to finally introduce a stylish nursing bra that offers support and looks pretty!

This beautiful new line from Marie Jo was designed with busy on-the-go moms that don't want to sacrifice style over comfort and support. It's available in Ivory (as shown) or black.

The Marie Jo Avero Nursing Bra has a fastening on the shoulder strap just above the cup, which can easily be unfastened to allow the cup down. It is also seamless under your clothes.

We recommends purchasing three nursing bras: one to wear, one for the laundry, and one to have clean and ready in your drawer. Remember that you will be producing a lot of milk and will suffer from leaky breasts, so you will need to wash your maternity bras frequently.

You can now breasfeed with style!

P.S: Marie Jo Avero Nursing Bra Size: 34-40B, 32-40CDE, 32-36F, Color: Black, Natural (As Shown)

Spice Up Your Dating Life- Valentine's Day- Washington, DC

Coup de Foudre Lingerie hopes to spice up your love life this Valentine's Day Do you want to impress her (girlfriend, fiancé, wife) and make her feel special? Then apply the following formula to make it both memorable and unique.

For those of you who are running out of ideas for that special date or trying to rekindle romance, here is one idea. (As planned by a customer)

Make a date. Then, send her a nice handwritten note on some quality stationary (correspondence cards for example) a day or two before your date and tell her the following: (See side bar)

What you need to do:

  • First invite her for a date and lock in a time and place

  • Identify a lingerie store nearby her work place and that is as sophisticated as she is

  • Call the lingerie store ahead of time and give your credit card number, the amount you have in mind and the name and short description of the person who is coming and an idea of where your relationship is for suitable suggestions from the knowledgeable staff.

  • Write her a hand written note (not an email) to give her all the instructions (where, when, what time)

  • Make a reservation in a restaurant for dinner or a nice place for a drink.

And now enjoy your date. We promise she won't forget it!

Why we like it:
Instead of just telling her you care, this shows that you really care about her by your going out of your way to create a perfect date that she will long remember.

For what occasions:
All! But especially for birthdays, anniversaries (any anniversary you’ve shared is special to her), Valentine’s day or other special occasion or just because you love her but don't do this on a first or second date!
