NTW 033 – Finally a Bra That Fits with Erica Windle of A Sophisticated Pair

Posted by on Oct 14, 2013 in Blog, Podcast Episodes | 7 comments

426971_362825643738159_1128212563_n In this episode I talk with Erica Windle, co-owner of A Sophisticated Pair about proper bra fitting, wearing and sizing.

Who knew I didn’t know how to put on a bra, let alone, size a bra.  Yes, the mystery of the proper cup and band size are revealed!   We learn how bras have different sizing standards, how a cup size has very little meaning truly, how most women are wearing and ill-fitting bra and the mystery behind the multiple hooks are revealed.

Then we get into the good stuff!  Erica tells us of how her struggles to find a properly fitting bra led to her co-founding A Sophisticated Pair – a boutique that is now helping women with proper sizing not only in her local community, but world-wide, online.

Business Tip of the Week

I have recently begun using a service called SpeakPipe to gather audio messages on this website for the podcast.  But what I’m finding out is that I’m getting all kinds of messages, right from this website that has led to more attendees to our local events and more business for Welhaven and Associates.  Who knew?  In fact, I’ve had several clients see this functionality here and asked me to add it to their website(s).  The results have been awesome and I’m still gathering statistics for you.

You can try SpeakPipe out several ways.  First, obviously, leave me a message as a user.  I’d love to play your message on a future podcast episode.  Second can use SpeakPipe yourself.  They have an entirely FREE plan as well as some 30 day trials on the paid-for-plans.  Frankly, their least expensive monthly plan is a mere $7 and likely what most businesses will need – you can always try it out for FREE and see if it is increasing customer engagement for you, just as it has for me.  In fact if their FREE plan suits you best, go for it.

Final Thoughts

I’m so glad you joined me again this week and I look forward to us connecting again in the following week.  Make sure you put YOU on your to-do list. YOUR long-term goals, YOUR health, YOUR happiness are all priorities. YOU ARE IMPORTANT TOO!
