Bra shopping. Ladies, what comes to mind when I say those words? A feeling of dread? You’re definitely not alone. Bra shopping is the worst, right? That’s what I used to think, too, but not anymore. Stay tuned because I am going to tell you how bra shopping can actually be fun. Yes, FUN!
So, here’s what typically happens when I go bra shopping:
1. Walk into Target.
2. Grab a bra in my size (or what ever the size of the last bra I bought was) and buy it without trying it on – because, well, who has time for that?
3. Try it on and spend the next month being uncomfortable until I wash it about 25-30 times and it stretches out and actually fits me half way decently.
Seriously, though. I am a mom and who has time for bra shopping? As long as I have a bra, I am happy. If if doesn’t fit perfectly, so be it – at least I am wearing one, right?

I recently discovered Peach and they are on a mission to change bra shopping forever. Peach is on a mission to inspire every woman to feel beautiful and confident in her own skin. They are here to help you fill your top two drawers with bras that actually fit and high quality panties. The best part is they make it easy and I can’t wait to tell you all about how it works.
I got the chance to visit the Peach headquarters in Waltham, MA recently and was so excited to delve into the inner workings of this amazing company.
Peach is a social commerce company dedicated to its mission to inspire women to feel beautiful. Their bras, panties, and basics (tanks, etc) not only fit and flatter, but they are super comfortable.
The way it works is simple. First you meet with your stylist to get fitted using their patented 10-point measurement system. You can connect in person or by video (yes, you read that correctly), where and when you choose. You can go to them, they will come to you or you can do your fitting virtually!
Since I went to them (at their HQ in Waltham), I had my fitting with Associate Director & Stylist Trish Carey. She started out by looking at my current bra (which was my trusty old favorite) and pointing out why it wasn’t working for me. After that she took some measurements and the real fun began. I got to try on a bunch of bras in several different styles to see what I liked and eventually find my perfect fit. Once my size was determined, Trish made some suggestions, I picked my favorites and the rest is history. Once my order was placed all I had to do was wait for my new goodies to be delivered to my home.
A return shipping label was provided in the box in case I wanted to exchange anything that didn’t fit right, but lucky for me – everything fit perfectly and if you order from Peach and you do need to send something back, you’re only charged for what you keep.
Trish set up my Peach profile online for me, which keeps track of my favorite items and you can even sign up to get a shipment of new intimates & basics based on your preferences as often as you life.
And back to that 10-point measurement system. What Peach founders did was collect thousands of data points from real women, in person, and they created an algorithm that recommends the best fitting bra. These are the same tools Google uses to translate languages and Netflix uses to recommend movies. After that, they used what they learned to help thousands of women get into the right bra for them!
I loved my experience with Peach! I received the Lovely Plunge Bra, and not only does it fit perfectly – my boobs look awesome in it. Well, at least that’s what hubby keeps telling me. I also got a pair of Simply Soft Long Leg Boyshorts because I am in sundresses all summer long and lord knows that I don’t want to be the next Brittany Spears. Oh, I also got the Simply Soft 1.5 Inch Rib-Knit Tank, which is the softest and most comfortable tank I have ever worn in my life.
So what are you waiting for mamas? Check out Peach to find your perfect fitting bra today! They also have gift cards which would make an excellent Mother’s Day gift. Just sayin’
