How to look pounds lighter in minutes!

Posted on January 19 2008 at 4:44:06 0 comments



Kim and Chris, the owners of Temptations in Barnt Green, explain how wearing the right bra can create a slimmer figure.

Hopefully we’ve caught your attention! So here we are; a new year. Many of us are joining gyms or embarking on a weight-loss plan – well, look no further.

Did you know that eight out of ten ladies are wearing the wrong size bra?

What many ladies don’t realise is that this actually makes the bust lower, shortens the waist and makes it look thicker, producing an unflattering silhouette.

It can also cause neck, back and shoulder problems.

But help is at hand! By wearing the correct size, you improve the look of your clothes and your posture instantly – looking pounds lighter in a matter of minutes.

We opened Temptations in October and have been delighted with the initial interest in the shop. The atmosphere is relaxed, with a secluded changing area where we offer professional fitting and advice on shape and style, assisted by our fitters Chris and Sarah.

All customers are encouraged to try before they buy – you wouldn’t buy a pair of shoes without trying them on, so why do it with a bra?

We also keep customer contact cards recording your likes and dislikes, which makes things far easier for husbands or partners shopping for a special occasion.

As well as everyday foundation wear, Temptations stocks beautiful lingerie for ladies who love a touch of elegance. Ranges include Lise Charmel, Marie Jo, La Perla, Prima Donna, Lejaby, Chantelle and many more. Sizes run from 30-44 back, and A-JJ cup.

Swimwear is also very important, especially with lots of people taking holidays twice a year. By the pool, you are at your most exposed, so feeling confident is essential – and wearing the right swimwear makes you feel confident.

We offer swimwear for all shapes and sizes, from classic suits to funky bikinis, and we take pride in choosing top quality garments for our collection. Plenty of matching accessories such as sarongs and shirts will be in store in February.

We hope we have given you an insight into what we’re trying to achieve in Barnt Green, and we look forward to being part of this friendly community.

We would also like to thank the local businesses and all the lovely ladies – and gentlemen – who ventured in before Christmas for their support.

* Temptations is planning to host a swimwear evening to show off the new collections – please ring or call in for more details.
