Welcome to A Sophisticated Pair! My name is Erica, and I am the co-owner, chief bra fitter, and manager of our family-owned shop. For years, I was improperly fit into the wrong bra size by sales associates who were trained to sacrifice accuracy for the company’s bottom line, and I suffered from back pain, poor posture, and a lack of self-confidence. Shopping for clothes was a nightmare, and I always felt uncomfortable because my bra was not providing me with adequate support. Eventually, I received a fitting from a trained professional and purchased a well-constructed bra in my correct size. For the first time ever, I felt good in my bra, but more importantly, I felt good about myself, a feeling I hope to share with other people. Soon after, I enlisted my aunt Debbie and my father Jason to create A Sophisticated Pair. Like me, Debbie struggled to find the right bra and was eager to promote proper fitting techniques, and Jason acted as my personal pep squad, rallying me to achieve my goals. My family and I are passionate about listening to our customers’ concerns and finding the perfect products for them. We believe no person should ever have to settle for a bra she/he doesn’t love or doesn’t fit. With our store, we have created a “Judgment Free Zone” where you can feel comfortable discussing your bra, lingerie, swim, and shapewear needs in a friendly, welcoming atmosphere and leave feeling confident about your experience and yourself.
Products & Services
With a focus on a proper fit, we primarily stock a variety of bra styles but also carry maternity, swimwear, shapewear, lingerie, underwear, and accessories. In-store we offer over 100 different bra sizes with bands between 28 and 50 and cups ranging from US A to O (UK A to K). Through our generous special order policy, we can also order additional sizes not presently stocked to ensure we find the best fit for your body, lifestyle, and budget. Majority of the bras we sell do contain underwire, but through our commitment to helping people find the perfect bra, we can recommend multiple styles for order. Furthermore, we are constantly updating our stock to suit the changing needs of our customers and are happy to keep you informed when new inventory becomes available. If you are unsure whether we stock your size or the styles you prefer, please feel free to call us at (336) 270-6744, and we will answer all of your questions.
Store Hours & Appointments
Last year, I was diagnosed with an auto-immune condition called Hashimoto’s Disease. Since I am the primary employee and sole bra fitter, the store often cannot open when I am ill, and unfortunately, this condition has taken its toll in recent months. I am still struggling with treatments to improve my condition, and we can occasionally close unexpectedly. When this becomes necessary, I always update our voicemail system, and I encourage anyone traveling from out-of-town to call before driving for a visit. We have also changed our store hours based on customer feedback and are now open Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday from 11a.m. to 6:30p.m. Given my health issues, I reserve the right to not accept walk-ins near closing time and prefer customers arrive 30 minutes prior to allow adequate time to shop.
During store hours, we accept walk-in customers or can reserve a fitting room with advanced notice. Our store is small and intimate with three fitting rooms available, which can unfortunately generate wait times during busy periods particularly because we strive to give each client personalized attention. Reserving a room in advance can alleviate this problem and help us schedule clients more effectively. We will not be accepting appointments outside of store hours until after August 1st. Please check back here for future updates on this policy.
