Woodfield Mall, one of the largest shopping destinations in the United States, is now home to the first JOCKEY® bra boutique in the country. The new JOCKEY bra features volumetric sizing, replaces underwires with a 3-D Contour support and guarantees consistent sizing in styles that will not be discontinued.
Designed by women, for women, JOCKEY bra’s patented Volumetric Fit System replaces the 80-year-old alphanumeric sizing format. This revolutionary fit system measures both the volume of a woman’s breast, as well as her under-bust measurement, resulting in the closest thing to a custom-made bra. Jockey conducted eight years of research and development, including the 3-D scanning of more than 800 female bodies, to design JOCKEY bra, and now women have a bra that they will enjoy wearing every day.
“We are excited to welcome the country’s first JOCKEY bra boutique, which is sure to become a popular destination among female shoppers,” said David Gott, general manager of Woodfield Mall. “This new concept store is a great addition to Woodfield Mall’s already impressive retail roster with over 300 stores.”
With a revolutionary measuring system eight years in the making, JOCKEY bra is offered in 55 sizes and five styles that will never be discontinued, eliminating women’s long-time struggle to find the perfect bra twice. As another exclusive feature, the JOCKEY bra boutique offers in-store consultations with fit specialists to provide an elegant, white-glove experience for consumers.
“With such a unique and near-custom product, we knew we had to treat our concept boutique with an equal amount of attention to detail and exclusivity,” said Mark Fedyk, vice president of retail for Jockey. “Our store visitors will notice right away the modern design, use of technology and attention to detail, which mirrors the research and design that went into the development of the new JOCKEY bra.”
Research1 shows that 53 percent of women have never been professionally fit for a bra and a staggering 85 percent currently wear the wrong bra size. JOCKEY bra boutique’s on-site fittings result in the closest thing to a custom-made bra. Once measurements are completed, shoppers can choose from five fashionable styles in three colors: black, nude or white.
The JOCKEY bra boutique is located on the upper level of Woodfield Mall near Nordstrom.
