Hi, I'm Julie the owner of Bee 4 Bras.
In the summer of 2014, I found myself in the unenviable position of trying to find decent underwear for my teenage daughters. The trip to the local High Street was unsuccessful as they were too mortified to enter any shop where people they knew might see them. We traveled further afield, only to find the teen section smack bang next to the escalators for all and sundry to see them. They were not impressed, but neither was I! I scoured the racks for something I felt was suitable for under a school uniform and found one style and they barely had any sizes. The next move was online. I chose what I could from the Big Brands but they were far from ideal with all of the fussy buttons, bows and even underwires.
So what's a woman to do but set up shop herself! I retrained as a lingerie consultant, found suitable suppliers and then fell in love with the Lingerie world.
Bee 4 Bras was initially created to help busy women find quality underwear for their daughters. As you can see though, it's oh so much more now as I can't help buying in Lingerie for women. I've also set up a Bra fitting consultancy from my home. Women come to me for various reasons; some have had a bad experience elsewhere; others appreciate the relaxed, friendly and homely environment, but mostly, I have so many women asking for help finding a bra that fits, and that comes in their size (yes that still happens!). I walk my clients through the process and offer them a choice of great styles that have been tried and tested on myself when I can, and my clients. I love this aspect of my job; I get to meet some really lovely women and help them feel just that bit more perky! Details of how to have a consultation with me can be found on the Book appointment page.
The range I sell is always expanding and covers a wide variety of sizes from an AA to K cup and whilst we still stock Girls first bras, we do cater for women of all ages and stages of their life as well! This includes Nursing Bras, Post Surgery Bras and Sports Bras.
I don't want any woman to feel that we haven't got her covered but realistically, I don't have the room for every size. So if you don't see what you're looking for, give me a call and we can have a chat about your requirements.
