Long wait – My fitter was Candy. Apparently, she got out of bed on the wrong side. If I had not had such a great first impression of the store when I walked in, I would have possibly left upset. All of the staff (with the exception of Candy) extended warm vibes and extensive personal service to all the clients. I overheard others waiting speaking of how impressed they were with the staff and the time they extended to each and every customer. I also noticed everyone left with a purchase and a smile!
FINALLY, SOMEWHERE I CAN TRUST – i HAVE JUST RETURNED FROM THE BRA PATCH AND HAD A WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE!! THE FIRST BRA I TRIED ON FIT, THEN SHE GOT ME ONE THAT FIT MUCH BETTER... I AM VERY HAPPY AND WILL BE GOING TO THE BRA PATCH REGULARLY. PRICES ARE GOOD TOO. NOW I HAVE TO GET USED TO MY GIRLS LOOKING UP AT ME!
The best bra shop in town! – I've gone to Pennyrich for last year and half. After three kids, breastfeeding.....they need all the help I can give them and Pennyrich does just that. So, now that I am getting remarried I new exactly where to go for my strapless, backless bra. I went without my dress...duh! I ran back home grabbed it and they fitted me, and recommended Dottie Valentine to alter it....Dottie is amazing. The whole experience was amazing. Plus, the bra was the cheapest in town or on the web. Victoria Secret should be ashamed of themselves...they are amateurs and not worth the money. If you want to get rid of neck and back pain then go get properly fitted for a bra. They always have plenty of 32D's in stock.
Great service, good prices, great quality – For the large-busted woman, this store is the best place to shop. I desperately needed a new bra after nursing my son. I went in on a lunch break and 15 minutes later I was walking out with 2 well-fitting bras. The owner helped me find the best fit, even though it turned out not the be the most expensive bra I tried on. Some of the bras were high-priced, but my bras were $38 which is not any more expensive than a store at the mall. I have been back several times. My $38 bras are almost a year old and still look brand new. The quality is worth the price and the service was all that you could ask for.
Extremely happy!! – I am so glad I didn't listen to the negative feedback! I am so happy with my experience here!
I got a personalized fitting (which i was made to feel very comfortable!) where a got a personalized fit! She then brought in such a huge variety of bras, which i could never find with my size before. They were cute, colorful, and most importantly a wonderful, supportative fit! I left with 4 bras and special detergent for them today, while ordering a specialty strapless for my size! I will definantly be back, and recommend all my friends!!!
You definitely will find something here. – When you are large chested and need new bra's bad reviews or not you go to check out the place. I was glad I was not put off by the reviews. The owner worked with me until we found something that fit properly and looked nice. She was very honest. We had one bra that fit nice but made me look like a sumo wrestler she straight out told me that wasn't the bra for me. She brought me a different bra that was actually less expensive and we both agreed that fit me better. Price wise I thought their prices were great. The bra's I normally purchase are $58 a piece this new brand she showed me was $38 boy was I happy. Another bra I purchased was $45 and I normally have purchased the same brand online and elsewhere for about $48 - $52 so prices aren't bad. You need to realize once you go up past a DD you are going to have to pay money for a good fitting bra. Especially if you range from and E to J cup. Also for you women out there who think you look frumpy its that you are not wearing the right size bra. Department stores that measure you put you in a larger band and smaller cup so they can make a sale because they don't carry the larger cups. This won't happen here because they carry all the larger cups so you will get the proper size bra. For example a person who really is a 36H would be placed in a 42DDD or 44DD bra in a department store since their cups do not go higher. Now you tell me how much support that will give you. This place is definitely worth checking out. especially if you don't like the bra's you have now. Go check it out and just buy one bra to see if its worth it. If you like it go back and get more. I purchased 3 and am going back next week to order more.
bra patch ... give it a try – After reading the bad reviews on this site about the Pennywise Bra Patch, I decided to see how "bad" it was. It was great. The new owner, Ruth, is helpful and personable. Twenty minutes after walking through the front door with no idea what size bra I now wear, I walked out with three bras and two pairs of underwear. I could have parked in the 15-minute parking space!
The bad reviews predate the new owner's purchase of the business, so give it a try. I was not thrilled with my "new" bra size, but it is the correct size whether I like it or not. Who wants to go from a 36C to a 32Long?
A real bra store – I was worried when I saw the other reviews, but when you have a tiny body and extremely large breasts there are few options. I am so glad I didn't listen to the few dissatisfied customers. There was a continual stream of customers at the store which I think is a testiment to its quality. As long as you wait your turn, you will get whatever you need. Everything isn't displayed, but I told the woman I needed something that would work under a strapless dress (tiny waist, large breasts) and she brought me exactly what I needed and I wasn't even sure it existed! I actually spent half what I was anticipating.
Very disappointing – I was recommended to go to the Bra Patch to find a bustier to wear under my wedding dress. The shop was dingy and run down and the owner didn't even acknowledge my presence for about ten minutes. She was busy helping other customers, but the least she could have said was "I'll be with you in a couple of minutes." When she finally decided to help me, she put me in the changing room, measured me, pronounced me a size, criticized the bra I was currently wearing (it was laundry day, what does she want from me?) and brought out a bustier. She didn't even finish putting it on me before she said it was too big and she went and retrieved a smaller size. The smaller size made me look HORRIBLE. It was way too tight, and when she removed it, I had marks on my skin. She didn't ask me what I was looking for in a bustier (namely, one that I can breath in but that supports me) she just expected me to buy the one thing she let me try on. I told her I'd have to come back with my dress to try them on together and high-tailed it out of there. I'm not going back.
Terrible customer service – I had called the day before to get store hours, told "owner" (I guess never introduced herself) that I would be driving in (two hours away) the next day had wanted to be fitted for a Pennyrich, asked about appointments and was told "it's first come, first serve"...I thought okay... Got there the next day around 2ish and when I enter and announced that I had called, the young girl said, "sorry she just left to pick up friend at hospital....but I can fit you"....I'm thinking okay....the girl measured me and said she got a 36 (now mind you I haven't been a 36 in years) acted like she didn't want to touch me and then brought in a 36 (which I couldn't even get fastened) then brought in a 38, which fit but then I asked, "Is this a Pennyrich bra?" and she replied, "Oh not, I can't fit those, they are totally different sizes." I asked her to call the "owner" who replied that if I wanted to wait, she might be back in an hour or so....needless to say I wasn't waiting.....agree with the other reviews, I will never darken their doors again...went to Belk, they had fitters on site and bought a Playtex product.....
