OC FAMILY POST ~ Need a Swimsuit that Fits Properly? Try {Intimacy}

At the end of 2010 I was over the moon when OC Family Magazine came a-knocking. 

They were inquiring about the possibility of me contributing to OC family to “spotlight OC boutiques, products or themes each week”. Since shopping is my “happy” place and I love OC Family Magazine, there was an enthusiastic yes. {Insert jumpy claps}

From now on I’ll be contributing stories to OC Family each Monday {click HERE to visit the site}. Then by following the said agreed upon terms, I may post the story to my personal website 5 days later. So friends, each Monday you will now see the previous weeks OC Family column, Kathleen’s OC Shop Talk.

One final note, if you have any OC  shops or products that you feel deserve to be featured please drop me a note. I would be happy to consider it!

Without further adieu, here is my inaugural post for OC FAMILY. {And I love it that this makes both my DH and Daddy proud.}


They call Susan Nethero “The Bra Whisperer.”

She was trained under the Queen of England’s Royal Bra Fitter, June Kenton, and has more than 15 years of experience giving women of all shapes and sizes the perfect fit

She is on a mission.  Nethero who has appeared on Oprah 5 times, {she has to be doing something right huh?} says that 85% of women don’t know their correct size.  I’ve had the personal luxury of meeting Susan and can validate her mission during my own personal fitting last year (click HERE to read about it friends).

With the Resort Collections popping up everywhere and Valentine’s day right around the corner, I visited {intimacy}.  I can confirm that they are not only prepared to help you celebrate a day with sexy undergarments but can also help out poolside.  You did read that correctly.   {intimacy} is currently offering Swimsuits based on your bra size.

One piece by Shan $350

For me swimsuits are like finding a fabulous pair of shoes or the most splendid jeans.  The fit is of paramount importance.  So you can image my pleasant surprise when I learned you can buy a top that makes the sisters look marvelous; then separately select bottoms. Your 34 C’s with a medium bottom that fits snug as a bug in a rug, is money well spent. If a one piece is more up your alley, (raising my hand) imagine the top proportion shaped just for your ta ta’s.  The swimwear is perfect for local beach trips here in the OC as well as poolside rendezvous in Vegas or Hawaii. Along with this special sizing, the soft and satiny fabric of the suit really seals the deal.

Bikini by Voda Swim $132

Furthermore, I was quite pleased to see more vibrant colors entering the market for the 2011 Spring Season. I confess, I’m a touch tired of the military greens and khakis of last season. I love this red and white polka dot number. I feel the Tankini version is calling my name.

  2. Congrats, Kathleen! 🙂

  3. Congrats. OC also can stand for opportunity coming!!!!!

  4. Cheers! You paved the way for yourself, nice work! The Shan suit is so beautiful. What a great resource!

  5. I think i’m a little bit in love with the shan swimsuit. how stunning is that. The freya bikini is gorgeous too very vintage. I love the fact that Freya do great bikinis in large cup sizes but they don’t compromise on style and still manage to offer the support that’s needed.
