Best Part About Her Job
I truly love the stories I hear from customers in the fitting room. I get to work with women from every background and in every stage of their lives. The young girl in her first fitting, the young lady going to prom or off to college and the bride. The breast cancer survivor, the customer with "new boobs" , the pregnant mom and the beautiful lady who is going through or has gone through menopause and her body is changing. We laugh and sometimes cry (tears of joy and/or sorrow) but the stories are the best. They warm my heart and I am grateful to be part of so many beautiful lives and beautiful stories.
Fave Customer Story
There are several customers that are very special to me and I couldn't begin to pick a favorite. One example could be the very special lady who had felt so bad, so insecure - so unattractive - her entire life because her breasts were asymmetrical in such a way that it was very difficult to find clothes that would fit - embarrassed to be without clothes….wearing clothes several sizes too big to cover the discrepancy. After a surgical procedure - well into her 40's - she came to the store to get bras. When she saw herself in a pretty bra for the first time that actually fit - she sat down on the fitting room floor and cried… Or one of my favorite customers came in after losing 175 lbs.…..most of us would be thrilled - however, it was such a process to get to that point that she didn't want to look at herself in the mirror - she couldn't see her new reflection - she didn't recognize herself. I stood with her in the mirror - as she realized that she had lost a whole person (in the 175lbs) and there was still one left - a very beautiful one - there were tears.
Funniest SOL Memory
I love my SOL family. We work hard and yet find a lot of fun in our day. Just trust me when I say… there are tons of stories that could be shared. My colleagues however have one that they love to relive (at my expense). After a long day - just before were locking up - I thought I would use the ladies room prior to the commute home and when I came out the store was completely dark, the curtains were pulled. It was winter and it was very dark outside. My assumption was that the alarm had been set for the night and I was all alone - My natural reaction (as it would be for anyone) was to scream at the very top of my lungs….I will admit that it was a blood curdling scream - one of irrational terror. Not sure where it came from - but my fun friends that I work with burst into hysterical laughter. In the midst of the darkness…there they were laughing themselves silly. A super fun practical joke in every way. On a regular basis they love reliving and reminding me of the episode. I love them!
What She Does For Fun
I love to be outside - I like to run, ski, hike and do some camping. I spend a lot of time with my growing family and love cooking "family dinners". I love my "date" nights with my husband and always enjoy a long lunch on a patio!
SOL Girls LOVE Sandy
It was my first time there as a customer after hearing about if for years. Sandy was exceptional at customer service, bra fitting, education, and attention to details, all of this while I was mindful of getting back in time for an appointment. I greatly appreciate her knowledge, skill and being such a pleasure to work with as well. Thank you for talking such great care of me, Sandy!
BIG shout out to my amazing fitter, Sandy. I REALLY appreciated her sweet personality, wit, and professionalism. My time was easy and fun leaving with 4 new bras and panties and a beautiful gift for my mother. Thank you Sandy!
My experience with this shop was nothing short of incredible! Sandy and I exchanged emails prior to my appointment so that when we arrive she had everything in order. She was knowledgeable and professional, it was an amazing experience I will never forget. I will recommend your store to all of my friends. You have a customer for life!
