Personally Yours boutique exudes positive energy. The smiling staff is warm and friendly and professional. You expect to have fun, and you aren’t disappointed. “Fun…that’s what we do,” exclaims store proprietor Suzi Manning.  Behind the fun, however, is a serious purpose.

The boutique is well known for their expertise in helping clients get a proper fitting. “Remember, a woman who wears an ill-fitted bra under a $200 blouse does not look her best. However, a woman wearing a properly fitted bra under a $20 t-shirt will look terrific.”

Clients constantly express delight and amazement when they first experience the total comfort of a proper fit, however, general wear is not the only consideration to finding the perfect bra. How the garment will be used and special considerations are addressed. For example, sports bras, nursing bras, lingerie for special occations, skin sensitivies, the entire staff is well trained in knowing and addressing each need. Do you require a unique bra size? The store inventory includes sizes from 32AA to 46DDD, plus they offer specialty sizes 32E to 46K.

In addition to this outstanding selection of lingerie, sportswear and swimwear, the boutique has expanded its line of  OEKO-TEX Standard 100 Certification products. This label denotes that the products have been tested and proven free of harmful levels of toxic substances.

Drop in today for your own magical fitting.

Tick Talk

Spring officially sprung on March 21. We have turned our clocks ahead. We are looking forward to warm winds, sunny skies and the smell of fresh cut grass. The daffodils and tulips have recently bloomed and we are just starting with the yard work that comes with the warmer weather.  Sadly, another season has started ramping up.  Tick season.

•             The best form of protection is prevention. Educating oneself about tick activity and how our behaviors overlap with tick habitats is the first step.

•             According to the NJ DOH, in 2022 Hunterdon County led the state with a Lyme disease incidence rate of 426 cases per 100,000 people. The fact is ticks spend approximately 90% of their lives not on a host but aggressively searching for one, molting to their next stage or over-wintering. This is why a tick remediation program should be implemented on school grounds where NJ DOH deems high risk for tick exposure and subsequent attachment to human hosts.

•             Governor Murphy has signed a bill that mandates tick education in NJ public schools. See this for the details.  Tick education must now be incorporated into K-12 school curriculum. See link:

•             May is a great month to remind the public that tick activity is in full swing. In New Jersey, there are many tickborne diseases that affect residents, including Anaplasmosis, Babesiosis, Ehrlichiosis, Lyme disease, Powassan, and Spotted Fever Group Rickettsiosis.

•             For years, the focus has mainly been about protecting ourselves from Lyme disease. But other tick-borne diseases are on the rise in Central Jersey. An increase of incidence of Babesia and Anaplasma are sidelining people too. These two pathogens are scary because they effect our blood cells. Babesia affects the red blood cells and Anaplasma effects the white blood cells.

•             Ticks can be infected with more than one pathogen. When you contract Lyme it is possible to contract more than just that one disease. This is called a co-infection. It is super important to pay attention to your symptoms. See link.
