If you have rounded the Lebanon square lately, no doubt you’ve noticed some new storefronts. One of those new shops is Dreams Boutique.
Dreams Boutique opened in late 2011 by Wilson County residents, Beverly Carter and Jesse Fish. The idea, inspiration and original concepts for specialty foundations, workout gear and a custom fit bra boutique arose, as they often do, with a need and yearning to help women feel confident.
“We were both just so sick of driving into Nashville just to find the right bra or going to huge retail outlets where there’s no one to fit you only to get home and find out I just spent $80 on something that’s too uncomfortable to wear. And ordering sportswear online is a nightmare for some people. So with all that and the fact that most of our friends are training for some type of race we knew there’s a market for our concept.” Jesse Fish says excitedly while checking out a loyal customer.
Jesse and Beverly met more than 3 years ago while both worked at Cracker Barrel’s Corporate office. It was while working in merchandise buying that they learned the buying side of retail; gaining insight that enabled them to open Dreams. Beverly adds, “The combined knowledge we both learned helps us with the daily running of the store. We are continually learning, but would not have felt we could make this work without the experiences we were blessed with.”
Beverly and Jesse have a talent for fitting, design, and helping women find the perfect yoga pants, pajamas, specialty fit bras and coming soon, bathing suits. With their combined education and desire to find foundations without driving all over Nashville, they mutually decided there was a great need for expansion in this industry, and the need to provide more education for women and fitting. “An overwhelming amount of women today are wearing the wrong size bra. Wearing the wrong size bra can lead to back and posture issues as well as be uncomfortable. As we gain and lose weight, our bra size changes as well, so it is always good to be sized each time you purchase a bra. Bras are like every other item of women’s clothing; they are not all made alike or fit alike, so you must try it on and not just purchase the size you have always worn. You may be surprised at how comfortable a good fitting bra can be.” Jesse says.
The inspiration for a unique, specialty boutique that provided a personal experience was quickly realized and soon thereafter, Dreams Boutique opened its doors in 2011. With sleepwear brands like PJ Salvage and Dearfoams; workout gear by Marika, intimate apparel by Panache Lingerie plus fragrances and, accessories and coming soon, swimwear Dreams Boutique has it all!
