Bex attended Libertyville High School from 1999-2003, and went to the College of Lake County to study Journalism from 2003-2006. After completing school in 2006, Bex was hired at a high-end lingerie boutique as a sales associate & bra fitter. There, she got certified for bra fittings, and gained experience in retail management, accounting, inventory, merchandising, sales, and more. After nearly 5 years with the company (which closed in 2011), Bex began doing fittings & personal styling on her own, before opening her own boutique in November 2012.
“Being a bra fitter opens the door to a completely different world…one that’s filled with intimate stories and experiences that no one really talks about. Because of the sensitive nature of my job, I don’t get to talk much about what goes on behind the fitting room doors. I take pride in being discreet and keeping my client’s information and personal experiences confidential, even though outside of work, I’m an extremely blunt, unfiltered, and a lay-it-all-out-there kind of girl. I started this blog as a platform for me to share these stories and experiences, as well as my journey as a new entrepreneur.”
ABOUT THE FITTING ROOM:
The Fitting Room is a bra boutique located in Historic Downtown Grayslake, that specializes in expert bra fittings, hard-to-find sizes, and specialty styles. Our mission is to educate women on the proper fit, wear, and care of undergarments, provide expert bra fittings and other services in a fun, comfortable environment, while creating an empowering experience for each and every woman that walks through our doors, regardless of age, race, size, physical abilities, or financial status. We believe that it’s just as important for a woman to wear properly fitted bras, as it is to understand how a bra should fit and how to take care of it.
In addition to bra fittings, we offer lingerie styling, bridal services, personal shopping, men’s shopping guidance, private parties & events, boudoir photography, and fittings for seniors, teens, and pre-teens. In 2014, we plan to add Mastectomy products and services to our list of offerings, along with support groups for breast cancer fighters and survivors in the area.
