A bra is the most essential item in every woman’s wardrobe and yet 80% get it wrong! Do you know your bra size? Struggling to find the perfect fit? Posh Essentials of Downtown Highland Park is hosting a complementary “Get FITed” bra fitting event in-store, 658 Central Avenue in Highland Park on Thursday, October 15 and Friday, October 16 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., offering sweet treats and chances to win fabulous prizes!

Shoppers are encouraged to bring in a new or gently used bra for donation and receive 15% off on each new bra purchase for each bra brought in during the entire month of October. All bras will be donated to The Bra Recyclers, which support more than 80 organizations around the world that assist women and girls in need.

“We really strive to be involved with helping women feel confident and having a perfectly fitted bra can really boost a woman’s self esteem,” says Pam Hillman, owner of Posh Essentials.



Wearing a bra that fits the body properly can absolutely change the way a woman looks and feels. There are documented health problems associated with wearing an ill-fitting bra. It can harm actual breast tissue, cause poor posture and produce neck and back pain to name few.

If you notice your bra rides up the back, the straps dig into your shoulders, you’re tugging at your bra throughout the day, or there are bulges at the top and sides of the cups – these are all signs of an ill-fitting bra and it’s time to Get FITed!

To extend the life of a garment, rotate your bras frequently, take care of them by hand washing or using a special lingerie bag, and never put them in the dryer. Foolproof your wardrobe and invest in these essential bras – seamless, strapless, sport and sexy, to have a variety of bras on hand for all occasions.



 Whether for work, lounge or play, Posh Essentials helps woman feel exceptionally good on the inside and very special on the outside. A boutique, owned by women for women, Posh Essentials offers a stunning collection of lingerie, sleepwear and unique gifts, with the largest selection of designers and sizes for all occasions. “Every woman deserves a pinch of Posh.” For more information, contact 847-945-POSH, visit, or keep up to date with Posh Essentials on Facebook at
