One of my favorite things to do in Burlington is stroll down Church St. Since moving here last June, my family and I have spent quite a lot of time doing just that, but I have to say my favorite way to stroll down Church St. is by myself. I love when my husband gives me some time for myself and I can spend time shopping and walking through stores without having to worry about keeping track of a toddler.
While there are quite a few stores that I love on Church St, I was VERY excited to see a new, local lingerie shop pop up (what literally felt like overnight!). Aristelle opened it’s doors in February, taking over the “Life is Good” store front. Andrea and her team have created a beautiful store that possesses the feel of a European boutique. Everywhere you look there is beauty; from the lingerie itself to the stunning decor.
I had been dying to get into the store without my little one in toe, so I was ecstatic when Andrea, the owner of Aristelle and a local momma herself, offered to host a private fitting for some of us blog ladies!
Shannon, Christin, and myself were given the VIP treatment from Andrea and her staff. We got to sip on wine and sparkling water, eat some delicious cookies, and be personally fitted for bras and lingerie that fit our current life situations (pregnant, nursing, done having kids, etc). We had an AMAZING time with these ladies and all walked away with a bag full of goodies that we couldn’t resist.
Aristelle states that they “do more than just solve bra fitting problems, we make bra shopping a relaxing and fun experience”, and I definitely found this to be true. I’ve had a few awkward bra fitting experiences before, but Andrea and her team put me right at ease as they helped me figure out my correct size and what nursing items might work for me. Nothing awkward or uncomfortable about it!
I also loved that they had a large variety of sizes. Being a larger chested woman, it can be hard to find the right size in things that are still pretty and feminine. That is not a problem at Aristelle where they have over 100 different bra sizes ranging from an A to L cup and 28” to 50” band. They truly do embrace the variety of shapes, sizes and preferences out there and have something for every body type.
I personally loved that they had a great selection of nursing bras, nightgowns, and tanks as I’m expecting our little girl in just a few weeks. I walked away with an adorable and AMAZINGLY comfortable and flattering nursing tank and one of the prettiest nursing bras I’ve seen (pink with hot pink lace!). I also snagged a pretty nursing nightgown and was gifted a matching baby outfit by Andrea!
Aristelle also offers many services, such as wish lists and gift registries, personalized bra fittings by appointment, boudoir photography, and hosting private events such as bridal showers, honeymoon-prep parties, events for soon-to-be moms or anyone else interested in having a fun night with friends.

My last fitting was at another local intimate apparel store, but Aristelle’s is by far the best! Lots of great nursing-wear!! So excited this store has arrived 🙂
My last fitting was way before a baby, things sure have changed since then!
Last bra fitting was when I was pregnant with my daughter, 4 years ago. I have since had another baby, and am almost done breastfeeding him….so a new fitting is going to have to happen soon!
My LO just weaned and I am looking forward to getting re-fitted and putting on some sexy, non-nursing bras. 😉
Yes, bra fitting is an art! Great review and I look forward to checking out, Aristelle!
I think the last time was when I got married. a mizzillion years ago.
What a great way to spread news about new local businesses! I definitely could use a bra fitting; it seems some of my bras fit better than others…
I have never had a bra fitting. I always just tried on a bunch and bought the one that felt best. i suspect a bra fitting maybe more efficient.
I had a quick fitting at motherhood maternity after giving birth to get a nursing bra.
Will definitely have to check out this new store!
I still haven’t bought a new bra since I had my baby last year!! It’s about time!! Love the store in the picture – modern and cute!
The last time was WAY before my two kids. This is long long long overdue!!!
I just had my daughter 8 weeks ago and it would be great to find a bra that actually fits… Thanks for the chance to win this great prize..
I own two bras. Was fit nicely at Victoria’s Secret. I think maybe it’s time that I invest in another bra!!!! Something fun!
