Joan has provided bra and mastectomy fittings – free of charge – for 22 years. “This really is my forté,” she says, adding that she provides an honest, accurate evaluation of what products best fit each customer’s needs. While she already has a large selection, Joan is planning to expand her lines of bras and panties to better service her customers. A wide range of sizes and styles are available, from petite to plus, and special orders are welcome. Ask Joan about specialty items, such as adhesive bras, which provide proper support in tandem with backless or strapless dresses, as well as the Brabag and Panty Pak uniquely designed for travelling and exclusive to her boutique.
