A downtown Walla Walla retailer that prides itself on helping its female customers "look their best from top to bottom" is focusing on the former with a special bra clinic this weekend.
Walla Walla Clothing Co. will host its semi-annual bra clinic 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Saturday. A representative from Le Mystere will join the trained staff member at the store to help women find the perfect fit. According to an announcement from Walla Walla Clothing, 103 E. Main St., 75 percent of women wear the wrong bra shape and size.
Teresa Morasch, Walla Walla Clothing co-owner, said in the past local women have had to travel as far as Seattle to get the special fitting service. "This is the most important item in every woman's wardrobe and it is so rewarding how much we have not only changed women's appearance with the proper foundation, but how much we have increased their confidence in their bodies," Morasch said in a prepared statement.
As an added bonus, the clothing store will offer 10 percent off Michael Stars and 3 Dot Tees during the event. For more details, call 525-4783.
Get ready to get centered.
Saturday is the 11th annual World Tai Chi and Qigong Day, and Sandi Wicher, owner of Harmony and Health at Many Waters Wellness Center, is inviting the public to participate in a tutorial and practice session.
The event is intended to bring people across the world together at the same time to practice the art/health forms.
The local event begins at 9:30 a.m. with qigong warmups at Many Waters, 820 Sprague Ave. at Jefferson Park. The sessions will continue with sun-style tai chi practice and lessons. Certified instructor Beth Frasier-Wirth will lead the sessions, expected to run until 10:45 a.m. Wicher said growing evidence from Harvard Medical School shows that the mind-body practice has value treating or preventing health problems. For more information on the event, call 386-4305.
