Lingerie has always been my passion which led me to initially make my own, then work in retail boutiques and eventually head the Lingerie Department of a large department store.
However one day my husband had a light bulb moment and said “As so many people love your enthusiasm and service, why don’t you start your own business?”
I opened a small store Champagne for Breakfast in 1999 at the Benowa Gardens Centre,moved to a larger one in 2007 in the Runaway Bay Shopping Village and now I am on Chevron Island.
Early on I realised that there was more to lingerie than just fitting bras and swimsuits correctly. It was then that I undertook the training courses necessary to fit breast prosthesis.
This lead me to offering a post surgical fitting service for women who had had a mastectomy as a result of breast cancer. Correctly fitting breast forms can be a very emotionally rewarding experience so we take whatever time is needed to ensure our customers are happy with their purchase.
We now also specialise in bra fittings which include breast reconstruction, augmentation and reductions.
My team and I are determined to offer a personalised service which includes fitting pockets in anybras so as to accomodate breast forms and even ordering your favourite difficult to get bra if itis still available from the manufacturers. We believein offering the widest choice of breast forms sourced from top suppliers in Germany and America.
As we are recommended by many surgeons on the Gold Coast please feel free to come in and chat (or blog us) about the options available after surgery and how to access Medicare and Veterans Affairs funding.
I also firmly believe in supporting local family businesses like us who support our community.
