In 1970’s, as a teenager, I came to the United States from Belize. I started working working at different houses then landed a job in Borough Park. I started working in a lingerie shop in Borough Park, Brooklyn. While I was there, I was taught myself to fit bras and girdles for all sizes.
In the late 80’s, I moved onto work at Bloomingdales. During, my nine years at Bloomingdales, I worked with brands like Wacoal, LA Perla, Rigby & Peller, and more American made brands.
After leaving Bloomingdales, I got my degree in Fashion Merchandising at Kingsborough Community College and worked with Le Mystere. At Le Mystere, I designed some of their most popular bras; it was featured on the Oprah Winfrey show.
I made the heartfelt decision to take a big leap and open my own store. I made it my life’s mission to give women of all sizes, a properly fitting bra. I truly believe that it “Starts with the Right Foundation”! I have gotten such gratification form working with my customers, they tell me that I have changed their lives! I feel am overwhelming magnitude of joy when customers cry tears of happiness after seeing the changes that a bra can do for their bodies. It feels good to know that I have done what I’ve set out to do – and I love every minute of it!
At Iris Lingerie, it Starts with the Right Foundation and the best customer service!
