There are a million and a half reasons why we dread bra shopping. Between the uncomfortable fit, the styles that produce a uniboob and the gut-wrenching “we don’t carry your size” situ, we totally get it if you’ve sworn off lingerie shopping altogether. But we guarantee you and your girls will find the support you need (and deserve) with the best lingerie shops in Winnipeg. And if you want to hit up all of the other inclusive, empowering bra boutiques from coast to coast, click here.
