The 100-year history of the modern bra

Did you know that on November 3rd of this year, the modern bra turned 100 years old?

Me either!

The first patent for the modern bra was issued in 1914. It was created by Mary Phelps Jacob when she was just 19 years old.

It consisted of two handkerchiefs sewn together with straps that tied around your neck. The look was similar to a halter top bikini. It wasn't as conforming, but it was much more comfortable than the metal corsets women had previously worn.

Jacobs, who later changed her name to Carasse Crosby, sold the patent to Warner Brother's Corset Company in Bridgeport, CT for $21,000.

#smallbusiness Saturday - November 29, 2014

A few weeks ago, the studio shared that we are officially part of #smallbusiness Saturday on November 29, 2014.

What does that mean for you?

All customers with a registered American Express card (call the number on the back of your card BEFORE November 29th to register) can get up to $30 back on any purchases made at a small business on that day. This includes purchases made at the studio!

All you have to do is use your American Express card to make a single, in-store transaction of $10 or more, and you will receive a $10 credit on your next month's statement.

Visit for more information and to register your Amex card before November 29th. Or call the phone number on the back of your card. If your card is not registered before this date, you will not receive credit.

We look forward to seeing you on November 29th!
