Foundations. A somewhat dated term, but oh so accurate. Undergarments literally lay the groundwork for a proper fit. Wearing inappropriate, or worse, ill-fitting undergarments can dramatically change the way you look and feel in your clothes. The wrong bra, panty or shapewear can completely undermine your favorite slacks, cocktail dress or formal gown.
With the variety, availability and online access to innovative styles and fabrics engineered at a spectrum of price points, it can get very confusing in the foundations department. Determining what to wear with what (they don’t call them t-shirt bras for nothing), and how to properly fit yourself takes time, experience and often a good fitter.
Enter Shirley’s Designs & Alterations. Our highly skilled tailors can make the necessary adjustments to your foundations to ensure a perfect fit. They can also guide you to the right undergarments for a particular outfit…say your wedding gown.
