I stopped into Lane Bryant yesterday. This has only been my second visit ever to a Lane Bryant store; first time in Roseville. I was able to look around for a few minutes before an employee, Madison, approached me and asked if I was finding everything all right. I asked if they had someone who could do a bra fitting. She was able to help.
Ladies…if you’re not getting fitted when buying a bra, odds are, you’re buying the wrong size.
Madison was able to do the measurement, asked what I was looking for, what I currently didn’t like about my current bras, etc. She gave me some suggestions and I was able to try some one. She made sure to come back and check on me. Then she helped me find another bra to go with the one I liked best.
At checkout, Madison asked if I had a Lane Bryant card. I didn’t; my credit isn’t great. She said they are a second chance company and if I was approved, I’d save $20 on my purchase. Ok, for $20 and a soft inquiry on my credit report…why not? Sure enough…I saved $20!!! You have no idea how much saving money, especially on necessary items, makes me giddy with joy.
I also prefer Lane Bryant over another women’s store with “angelic” models, because unlike Lane Bryant, the other store refuses to carry any size over a 38 in their store; essentially saying they only want a specific body style shopping there. Once, the other store’s employee actually told me I could order online or go to Lane Bryant. Ya know, that’s exactly what I did! I admit, having had five kids, being more than gifted in the “girls” department, I don’t look like a supermodel. I will, say I think I look pretty damn good for a mother of five, but I live in reality and I’m not every going have a size six again.
The store is clean, the merchandise is reasonable and well made. The customer service is OUTSTANDING!!! With so many businesses acting as if the customer is there for them and not the other way around, it was very refreshing. They’ve definitely earned my future business, a positive Yelp review and a not-to-shabby blog post.
