At a recent visit to the optometrist, while my glasses were being adjusted as they need to be once in a while to improve the fit – I had a “lightbulb” moment … we offer the same "tune-up" service at Linea Intima for bras, but I think very few of you know about it!
As you wear your bra day after day, similar to your glasses, parts of it tend to stretch – like the band, which you can adjust with the hooks yourself. But the straps also stretch out and as a result your bra doesn’t quite fit or support the way it did when you bought it. We want to remind you that you can bring any bra into Linea Intima and we will gladly adjust the straps and improve how it fits. OR so it fits like new once again. Yes … even the bras you didn’t purchase from us! It’s a good idea to do this a couple of times over the course of a year to help maintain the perfect fit, a cornerstone of our customer service.
North American women often envy their European counterparts - especially the French. We romanticize about everything they do. We imagine them sitting at outside cafés on the streets of Paris and skirting around cars on their Vespas.
The Parisian woman is confident, strong, and seductive. She knows that the secret to great style and looking your best is to dress well from the inside, out. For her, matching bra and panty sets are a must and French women will purchase at least two matching panties for each bra!
A new bra will most certainly make your clothes fit better and give you more confidence by making you look younger and thinner. But a matching panty is the icing on the cake so-to-speak – the extra special detail that gives your inner confidence an extra little boost. As I always say, “It's something that only you (and a lucky partner) can see, but everyone will notice!” And it’s why our Linea Intima lingerie experts always encourage you to buy matching panties to go with your bra.
It’s no secret we’re passionate about matching sets – I’ve written about it before here and in our Newsletter. So in case you’re still not convinced about their benefits, our June special offer just might help.
This month when you purchase a Simone Pérèle bra, you get the matching panty for 50% off!
During Simone Pérèle month at Linea Intima, we want you to experience the beauty of a luxurious French lingerie set, and feel the same confidence that French women have for generations.
I’d love to hear how much you enjoy your new Simone Pérèle matching set and whether you notice a difference in how you feel wearing it - please drop me a note.

PrimaDonna lingerie has been devoted to women's natural curves since 1895. Each collection's design is so intricate that each bra requires between 40 and 50 stages of assembly! In 1990, PrimaDonna and Marie Jo joined forces. Marie Jo had been established for only 9 years by this point, but it was already known for its transparency, airiness and delicate embroidery.
Though many years have passed since both brands began, they still stay true to their roots. PrimaDonna bras are now available up to an I cup, and each season Marie Jo dedicates many styles to beautiful lace and embroidery.
This April, we dare you to “take the PrimaDonna challenge!” Visit any of our locations and try on a PrimaDonna or Marie Jo bra from the Spring 2014 collections and receive $10 off all your PrimaDonna and Maire Jo bras. Visit our Pinterest board to view some of the styles we have in store.
See you soon!
