We Did It! We Made It!
In case you didn’t know Fit Britches has been nominated for an Award at the Lingerie Awards 2013!!!! We are SO excited to one of the runners up for Shapewear Brand of the Year along with Spanx, Maidenform, Wolford and La Figurelle!
The Lingerie Awards are a glitzy, glamorous star studded affair every year attended by hundreds of industry executives and held in the Peerless Freemans’ Hall in Covent Garden!
Receiving an award, or just being nominated for one of these prestigious honours symbolises a recognition from the lingerie community that Fit Britches has gone above and beyond in the design, quality and delivery of their products....and we couldn’t be prouder! The awards event is on the 4th December so we’re already picking out our Fit Britch ensemble to go under our cocktail dresses!
