“It starts with the right foundation” is Iris Clarke’s credo. Properly fitted undergarments make all the difference in the way a woman’s outfit appears. Iris estimates that roughly 85% of women wear the wrong bra size, with most of them insisting that it’s the other 85% who don’t have it right. Iris can eyeball any customer and guess in an instant the correct band and cup size.
And little wonder, given that Iris has been in the lingerie industry for over thirty years, fitting, stitching, and designing. Nestled downstairs inside Kimera (Atlantic Avenue’s bridal boutique) is Iris’ own intimate lingerie store, where she helps to fit women of all sizes and shapes into proper brassieres.
Iris began her career decades ago by fitting in a corset job. She moved on to designing lingerie at top-end manufacturers such as Le Myste’re, and made it big when one of her designed T-shirt bras was selected by Oprah on her TV show as one of her “favorite things.”
Iris Lingerie carries an abundance of high-end bras and lingerie, all designed with a careful eye for trends, color, comfort, and support. Lines include Prima Donna, Marie Jo, Chantelle, Le Myste’re, Fantasie, Panache, Goddess, Freya, Barbara-French and Wacoal, among others. Iris also retails sleepwear by Hanro, DKNY, Blush, Claire Pettibone, Mary Green, garter belts, half slips, camisoles, bustiers, tanks and Body Wraps & Spanks, etc.
You want sexy? You got it. Looking for something cozy instead? You got it. Cup sizes from A to L, bright colors to muted shades, maternity and nursing bras — whatever the need, chances are, Iris Lingerie can fulfill it with lingerie designed to enhance, complement and support any woman’s figure. If a bra doesn’t fit, Iris can expertly alter it for fit of perfection.
Whether you are a lingerie aficionado or new to the lingerie world, Iris easily makes you comfortable. Customers leave feeling different from when they walked in. Iris guides them in helping to understand what works for their bodies and why. Women can see and feel immediate results as they are lifted, supported and shaped. For Iris, this is her passion — making women feel comfortable from the inside out.
