Last week we stopped by the Victoria's Secret flagship location on Michigan Ave to catch a glimpse of supermodel Erin Heatherton and check out the latest development in bra selection: the Bombshell bra.
When we arrived, lingerie manager, Kerry took us back to the fitting rooms where they had the Bombshell waiting for us. Kerry along with her bra fit expert, Laurel discussed every single bra and the scientific development for the line. The Bombshell was being worn by Erin Heatherton who casually talking about how it gives you an extra two cup sizes.
Erin changed into a pink dress and strutted on a runway through the store. The event also included make up touch-ups, bra and swimsuit fittings. Erin then posed for an array of photos with customers and fans until 5pm. At 6:45, she traveled to the north side to Wrigley Field where she threw the first pitch sporting a special Victoria’s Secret Cubs shirt that is now available in stores.- Shelby Steiner
