In the lingerie department

Our Human Resources Manager, Maria tells us about her time in the lingerie department

MariaI believe that to understand how our business works and what motivates our people it’s important for me to go out and get involved with all aspects of the store.

As the Human Resources Manager my usual base is in the HR office on the third floor.  I was lucky recently to get the opportunity to help out in our Lingerie department.

The Lingerie department at Harveys is unique in that we sell many brands and types of bras to fit all different shapes and sizes, and because we are not tied to one brand of bra, our commitment is to our customer, giving them a bespoke service ensuring that they are offered what is right for them.

As well as the rest of the ladies in the department, I’m a trained bra fitter and we pride ourselves in the customer service and the personal touch we give.

 “it is our personal project to make sure that they feel comfortable”

When ladies come to us asking to be fitted for a bra, some are quite confident and know what they want and some are extremely nervous, whichever one they are it is our personal project to make sure that they feel comfortable and from the moment they step into the fitting room that they are the only person in the store.

We encourage our ladies to try on as many different brands and sizes to make sure they have the perfect bra for them.

It is such a pleasure to see a lady who has come in nervous, walk out with a big smile and feeling confident about their body. My sister in law couldn’t believe the difference it made to her shape; she looked and felt slimmer. A good fitting bra will give you confidence and just think your clothes will fit and look better too! If you have a special outfit why not bring it in?

So why not come in and give yourself some time to enjoy the experience, there is no obligation, the service is free and I am sure you will leave satisfied.

The Lingerie is not just about bras, panties and magic knickers , in summer there is an explosion of colour with swimwear ranging from £19.99 for a bikini to swimwear from Fantasie, Freya, Pour Moi and Ted Baker to name a few. In the colder months you will find nightwear, robes and bedsocks ideal for gifts or treat yourself to a cosy night in!

Well that’s me signing off for now until the next time I look forward to seeing you in store.
