Maxine Windram had a hunch.

Together with her mother Lin, Maxine got serious about researching this nicheconsumer market and in 2006, with no retail or bra fitting experience, launchedBrava, a lingerie store catering for d-cup and up. Today, Brava has 6 stores and a booming online business and a cult following thatmost retailers could only dream about. Maxine freely admits that she has had a steep learning curve and notes building herown advisory board as one of the many ways she’s made up for her lack of businessexperience.
