KM Hudson is a little gem nestled on the top of Charles Street, housing thousands, 7,000 + to be exact, variations of bras. Additionally, the store carries unique swim, lingerie, shape wear and the girliest bralettes you have ever seen. The woman behind the store, Katherine Hudson, has fit more than 12,000 women between her Charles Street and Mashpee locations. Alana, Amy, and I got to spend some quality time with her yesterday to get fitted in preparation for Blog Better Boston's Style Summit (Katherine will be on site working her magic!).
I learned just how much goes into actually making a bra, and the appropriate things to look for per your body shape, style and comfort level when choosing your brassiere. I had never thought about my daily activity in relation to size before. For example, I sit behind a computer for at least 10 hours a day, sitting expands your rib cage, where the band is, dun dun dun. The band should also fall in-line with your biceps when your arms are relaxed. I realized mine sneaks up in the day thanks to all of the hunch backing I do at my desk, which can make an unruly mess under your tops! All of these tips and tricks you'd never get from the high school gal working at VS in your local mall! I left up a cup size and down a band size, which Katherine said was the most common fix she makes after a fitting.
KM Hudson carries brands like Marie Jo, PrimaDonna and Cosabella. I highly recommend going to see Katherine and taking advantage of her wealth of knowledge and individual attention you'll receive. You'll walk out with a lil pep in your step!
