Breast Health - Fashion and Function

We are pleased to have an article featured in this week's Valley Living section of the Comox Valley Record. You'll find our article, Breast Health - Fashion and Function on page five.

Here's an excerpt: 
Health matters. We think about it every time we pop an apple into our children's lunchbox, but our own is just as important. And now that the kids are going back to school we can get back to our own healthy routines at the gym, tennis court, golf course or hiking trail.
But as we go about our healthy activities, it's important to remember another area of our health too: The health of our breasts...
Read the whole article to learn about how breast health is connected to your lingerie.

How Do I Make Bra Straps Comfortable? How Can I Prevent Them From Slipping?

Comfortable bra straps. To some women, this feels like an oxymoron, but we assure you, it isn't.

Not only does Secret Drawers Lingerie have many styles you would find comfortable right off the hanger, but we have a solution for uncomfortable straps you already own - silicone shoulder cushions.

Not only do these silicone shoulder cushions make bra straps comfy, but they cling to the body preventing straps from slipping down the shoulder.

How to Use Comfy Straps

Simply slip your bra straps into the split pocket designed into the comfy strap. The silicone oval pad then rests on your shoulder. Instead of a 3/4 inch strap digging in, you now have a soft cushion.

This is particularly helpful for those with a large bosom who find their bra straps leave indentations in their shoulders and those whose shoulders tend to slope.

Have more questions? Check out our Frequently Asked Questions section, leave us a comment, or come in and see us at Secret Drawers Lingerie where we're always happy to find solutions to those everyday dressing challenges.

New Prima Donna - The Endor

It feels like we haven't seen nearly enough new Prima Donna in Secret Drawers Lingerie lately, but the Endor, it seems, was worth the wait.

Endor is the beautiful, new line from Prima Donna's bridal collection. Rest assured, those not in the wedding isle are welcome to wear it as well.

The Prima Donna Endor is in a natural ivory that looks stunning against any skin tone. A semi-spiral pattern tops the delicate embroidery on the cups. Diamonds wander the edges and straps creating angled and scalloped lines.

And this full-cup bra is perfect for the larger-breasted woman. We're carrying the Endor in sizes 36 C - 42 G and even have the bottoms to match.

Join us in-store to try on this pure and elegant look.

Your Love: Éternelle

A few months ago we told you about a new Chantelle line - Éternelle. 

Éternelle is stunning in its use of ultra-fine lace, but had one problem - it was best suited for a smaller cup size. Well, no more. Come in and try on the latest Chantelle Éternelle up to a G cup. 

This new style is part of the Éternelle collection, but sports a full cup to flatter a wider range of women. The Éternelle continues to boast a strap so lovely it begs to be seen and impecable delicate and feminine detailing.

So now whether you prefer a demi-cup or a full, you can find your love Éternelle.
