LINGERIE FITTING SPECIALIST

Barrie, ON

About Bliss Beneath

Bliss Beneath was born from owner Tamara Disaverio’s love of educating and empowering her clientele about the benefits of proper fit and support and watching them transform and come alive in the fitting room. Tamara has learned that we all have insecurities about our bodies no matter our age, shape, or size.

Tamara wanted to introduce proper fit, comfort, and support to central Ontario at a more moderate price point than what was currently available so that families with an average income could afford to invest in properly fitted bras and swimwear. The confidence a person feels in a properly fitted bra and swimsuit is carried within us.

Bliss Beneath is known for our body-positive environment and messages. We have permanently displayed body-positive messages posted strategically around the store. Message boards with body-positive communications visible in the change rooms and at the front door are updated weekly. These message boards are in place of posters of models that aren’t representative of real-life individuals. Real-life bodies aren’t meant to be airbrushed!

We are known for our body inclusive mannequins that range from size 2 to sizes 18-20, and some of the mannequins have assigned names and personas.

Our online boutique is a convenient means to place repeat orders on products that have been previously purchased.

We are committed to making a positive difference in our community, one client at a time. We advocate that all individuals deserve to fit in. We champion self-love and self-respect and celebrate all ages, ethnicities, and body shapes. We practice a warm, welcoming, and relaxed culture of inclusivity and are dedicated to helping our clientele feel comfortable, confident, and happy.

Bliss Beneath is seeking a motivated Lingerie Fitting Specialist passionate about empowering our clientele and committed to providing exceptional customer service. You will educate our clients about the incredibly positive impact properly fitted garments can have in their life. This position is based at 241 Essa Rd, Barrie, ON L4N 6B7.

Job Description

Responsibilities for this position include:

  • Providing exceptional customer service to Bliss Beneath’s clientele.
  • Assisting clients one-on-one thoughtfully and respectfully and understanding the needs for each individual fit experience, including health-related circumstances.
