Best buds open Boutique Burlesque

TWO friends who wanted a change in career have decided to set up their own lingerie shop and will be donating cash to Breast Cancer Awareness.

Owners Sue Robinson and Lesley Stokes have been friends for 20 years and are excited to finally open their store Boutique Burlesque, in Orchard Street, Weston this month.

Lesley said: “We both realised Weston needed a lingerie shop offering a bra fitting service.

“So we attended a specialised bra fitting course in Leicester, and are now able to use a new five point system without a tape measure to fit ladies in the correct bra, as 80 per cent of women are currently wearing the wrong size.”

The duo will be selling a wide range of lingerie which will include first bras for teenage girls, shape wear, pregnancy, mastectomy and sports bras, and a selection of hosiery.

Boutique Burlesque will hold two open days on Friday and Saturday offering 20 per cent discount and will make a donation to Breast Cancer Awareness.

The store will also have a re-cycle bin for women to bring in their old bras which will go to others in Africa.
