Amanda Torres Price, BODY: Describe your store.

S.N.: Le Soutien has a very comfortable atmosphere. The main emphasis is bras accounting for 75 percent of business. The bras are all stored in dresser drawers and displayed on panels above the dressers [giving] the store a very uncluttered look. [We also carry] corsets for bridal, limited styles of camisoles and nightwear, and of course panties. [We are] known as the premiere bra fitting store in Denver. We believe in high-quality products and for that reason most of our inventory is European.
