Meet the Team
Due to the frustration as a teenager of not having a good-fitting bra, I was motivated to open Avokado, for girls and women facing the same bra issues that I faced. Along with providing beautiful, top-quality lingerie & swimwear for bigger busts, it’s also a great opportunity for us to educate everybody regarding bra sizing and fitting (a subject that is not generally discussed and has many misconceptions). We try to instill the importance of a good-fitting bra as this definitely impacts on a woman’s self-esteem. It is such a pleasure for me to see ladies go from having poor-fitting bras to the best size/style for them. The happiness they derive from that is what drives me and the rest of the team at Avokado.
Hi, I’m Michelle. I’m from the UK and trained as a bra fitter whilst I was at university. I took a few years break to work in the ‘corporate’ world but soon realised that my passion lies with helping women find that perfect fitting bra! I was so excited to discover Avokado as a customer, and now I am just as excited to be a member of the awesome team here!
Kia ora, I'm Sarita and I'm passionate about helping women and gender diverse people to find bras that not only fit, but also helps them feel at home in their own bodies. I've worked in the lingerie industry for 2 years and the retail industry for 8 years, and one of the most common issues I've seen is that the sizes available are not reflective of what people need! And when it comes to bras it is imperative to have the right size, so I'm glad to work in a place that caters to the full range of sizes, with a team that shares the same values as me. See you in store soon! :)
Hi all, I am Radha. I work with a fantastic team here at Avokado. I have been working in lingerie retail for over 10 years and I am a fully qualified bra fitter. I am very passionate with what I do and that is meeting new customers who really appreciate the time we spend with them. I look forward to seeing you all in store soon.
Hi, my name is Lisa and I have many years experience in the Lingerie World. I am passionate about how underwear as your foundation garment can affect the look of your clothes. The most beautiful dress in the world is not going to look right without the proper bra underneath it and I want to help you achieve the most fabulous fit! Looking forward to seeing you all when you visit us in-store.
Hello, I’m Ash. I understand that bra shopping can be a stressful and emotional experience, especially for those who have been incorrectly fitted or wear a size not stocked in most stores. As much as it sounds like a cliché, finding a bra that fits properly is life changing. I want to help as many people as possible find their perfect bra so they can feel physical and emotional comfort. I’m super excited to be able to do that as part of the Avokado team. Please come in and see us, I promise we’re nice. :)
Hi there! I'm Laura, and I'm fascinated by how one well fitting and comfortable bra can positively impact how people hold themselves and think. I'm passionate about encouraging people to see how amazing they are inside and out - no exceptions. Can't wait to meet you!
