Husband and wife entrepreneurs, Nicola Rodney-Crook and Andrew Crook, came to San Diego to provide a service and products that cater to full figure women who often find themselves struggling to find sizes that fit when shopping for bras, swimwear, and lingerie.

The couple who already have a successful online business, purchased and relocated The Enchantress which has been a San Diego staple for years. In fact they will be celebrating their 25 year anniversary later this month. Their new store, Bras and Honey Boutique is located in North Mission Valley and opened early this Summer. Both locations offer products in all sizes that extend from A to N. They also cater to women who have had a mastectomy; Co-owner Nicola is in the process to becoming certified as a Mastectomy Fitter which means the customer can bill their health insurance, something no other retail women's store in San Diego offers.

The couple pride themselves on every women who comes into either location receives a professional fitting at no charge and that they feel beautiful; that includes one demographic of women that have not always had an easy time shopping: transgender women.

"We believe all women are beautiful and wanted to provide a service and products that align with that. We want the local transgender women to know that our doors are like our minds and hearts...wide open," added Rodney-Crook.

Bras and Honey Boutique is located at 4242 Camino Del Rio North in Mission Valley and The Enchantress is located at 4125 Mission Blvd. in Pacific Beach.
