Amazing experience! Kyra was such a help. They are doing apt only, my wife and I arrived for ours and were greeted by Kyra. She was able to size by sight! she brought us so many great finds. I was able to tell her what adjustment I wanted like more cleavage or longline or I like this brand and she found a variety of every kind so I left with pieces I truly love. My wife and I couldn’t have been happier with our experience. Side note we did go in for bathing suits and while they didn’t have tons that we loved, we still left happy. Also they get new swimsuits at the end of March ;)
Great fitting advice and excellent selection as always! Thanks so much!!
Excellent service and products!!! Thank you.
Took my teen here for her first real bra fitting. Staff was so nice and helpful and a great selection for a trickier size to fit!! It was a fabulous experience.
Excellent experience as usual. Great service, and I went home with three lovely new bras. It can feel weird going out in the world during this pandemic, but the pencil test feels very safe. So glad to have them in Portland.
It's so nice to have options for bras when most mainstream stores don't have any that fit me! Customer service is also excellent!
I’ve been coming here for about 7 years now! And even though I’ve moved about an hour and a half away, I refuse to buy bras anywhere else. They always have what I need, and the employees are so sweet and helpful, not to mention the amazing owner! I highly recommend this place to anyone I can find.
We had such a great experience at The Pencil Test! I brought my partner’s 14 year old, and she had her first bra fitting. The staff did such an amazing job making her feel comfortable and making the whole experience fun. I learned a lot about my own size and the best bra fit for my own body as well. The staff has done an awesome job with Covid protocols-we felt safe the whole time. I can’t recommend The Pencil Test highly enough!
I had never been to a formal bra fitting and felt a little bit shy and nervous. I had nothing to worry about. Holly, the owner, is friendly, funny and well informed about bras. I bought two beautiful bras that actually fit and would highly recommend treating yourself to a fitting.
Amazing selection, remarkable customer service, great prices and COVID safe. I can’t say enough good things.
Fantastic experience with Renee! Huge inventory and able to take time to do a real fitting! Will be back for sure!
Awesome as per usual!
Holly is really a fantastic human with a great knowledge of tatas! I trust her judgement and she always sends me home with some awesome fitting bras. I live in Sherwood and will always make the trek here because they do such a great job and have my size always. Thank you!
An awesome experience for someone like myself who does not enjoy shopping! Rene was on point, on-duty, and knows the shop's products like the back of her hand! We found something more of my style - she listened and delivered exactly what I wanted. I also appreciate their efficiency - the ease of scheduling an appointment; an expert fitting of fewer than 15 bras (or so, grin); edification about future purchases; then a smooth departure. It was great to slamdunk my old bras! I am so glad they have figured out a way to serve the community during the pandemic. Kudos!
Great Service! My visit started with a greeting from one darn cute pup, which made my morning. The selection is always plentiful. Got some fun and some practical pieces.
What a wonderful experience! This place is a game changer! Tons of inventory & the service and knowledge exceeded my expectations! Will be going back for sure!
Great customer service! Everyone was very friendly and informative. Lots of products to choose from for a reasonable price.
Helpful and friendly! Thank you
The ladies at The Pencil Test were able to find me a perfectly sized bra just by looking at me. The bras are beautiful and fit great! Will definitely be back.
Absolutely wonderful customer service! They have great variety and make sure you leave happy and comfortable. I’ve never had so many options to try on and it was a great feeling!
I had been wearing the wrong size for at least a decade. Quick fitting and I already feel better! Thank you!!
The Pencil Test is the best. I’ve been getting my bras here for years. Now that I’ve pregnant and my cup sized has changed, I’m back! They had lots of great nursing and non-nursing options to choose from. Always great customer service! It felt very Covid safe with only 1 other customer present during my appointment time.
Friendly and helpful staff. I was the only customer in the store- COVID-19 guidelines were followed. I told them what I was looking for and they went right to work finding the perfect items.
Holly is primo.
Best investment ever! It seemed like magic. Breasts in the right places, back not hurting and for once in my life I love my bra. Thank you!
They were great!!
Wow!! For the first time in AGES I own two comfortable, pretty bras. Holly greeted me at the door and was attentive while being friendly, professional, and non-judgemental. Even better, she immediately understood why my old bras were uncomfortable and easily solved the problem. I felt welcome, accepted, and safe. A perfect experience!
They were so helpful and professional. I felt comfortable and attended to throughout the process. I found three new bras at reasonable prices that fit perfectly! Very pleased overall. Wish I'd started shopping here sooner.
17 weeks pregnant and none of my bras fit! I made an appointment and had a great experience with Renee. I was a 32DD pre-pregnancy, and just by looking at me Renee was able to tell I was a 32G. She brought a bunch of bras to try and I left with 3 amazingly comfortable bras (2 non-wire and 1 underwire) that actually hold me up! Yay!
It was amazing
Great customer service and friendly staff! Lots of cute, comfy and quality bras. You don't know how much you were missing until you find the perfect fit! Thanks so much!
Abby was amazing. First time finding a bra that actually fits. So glad I went.
Great experience! Ended up with the perfect bra for my needs in exactly the right size. Won’t go anywhere else the next time I need a bra!
Best fitting I’ve ever had. My new bras seem like they actually fit. They are very pretty, comfortable, and cost not much more than a nice bra from a typical department store. If you are full figured you must try.
The staff was amazing! I was really nervous going. I got the most amazing bras and it was a very good experience.
Once again I walked out with three amazing bra’s ! Love this shop and plan to continue to shop here for my boobie support for years to come ♥️
I had an amazing experience. Bra fitter really a listened to my needs and helped me buy new and comfy bras. And also helped me get a bit out of my comfort zone and I got some awesome fun bras! The Pencil Test has a great selection and it’s nice finding fun and pretty bras in my size. Love and already recommended to friends ♥️
Enjoyed the fitting and found some excellent bras. Will definitely go back.
I love this place - I drove all the way up for Salem for an appointment and it was well worth the trip! I bought a few nursing bras, and Kyra was a great help in sizing me and advising and how I might need to adjust things as I start nursing. I also heard her on the phone with someone on the east coast who orders from their store, and she spent a lot of time patiently helping this person figure out their sizing dilemma. Wish they had a location further south, but in the meantime I'll keep making the trip!
Wish I had this shop available to me ages ago. Loved the whole experience. Only fitting that I’ve come out of happy.
First time at The Pencil Test. Super store. Friendly and knowledgeable. Felt extremely safe! Now I have (3) fabulous bras that fit. Hurray
I’m so glad I found this place! I feel like I can stand up straight again with these new bras. The staff was really helpful and I felt comfortable being fitted. I’m never going anywhere else for underthings!
Bra shopping made easy! My pro bra fitter was so helpful and I learned something new in my 43 years about how to get the right fit! I appreciate the approachability and knowledge of the staff. Great vibes. I’ll be back! Thank you all! Molly
I first came in a couple years ago, and that was the first time I got fitted into the correct size! My size recently changed, and I had to come in for another fitting. Always a pleasant experience, best bra shop ever!
I walked in this place feeling not so hopeful but the customer service, friendliness, and professional surpassed a 10 rating and on top of that I found three extremely comfortable bras and ordered one! I left there feeling amazing!
Super helpful, thank you for the COVID safe shopping experience :)
Abby was so sweet and made me feel comfortable the whole time! She helped me find 2 bras that fit, even though I'm a challenging size and shape lol. Definitely recommend coming here!
The staff here are awesome. They take their time and patience to make sure you get the proper fit and find bras to your taste. My daughter, my granddaughter and I are quite pleased with our purchases. I highly recommend The Pencil Test and the staff. Thank you ladies for EVERYTHING!!!! We will definitely return for more undergarments!
This store is a life changer. So appreciative of their products and attitude. I love the pencil test! 6 stars!!
I was so happy with the customer service. They have so many options, and they will let you try them all. The bras are beautiful, and they have lots of options in stock. Reasonable prices and everyone was so helpful. I’ll never get bras or bathing suits anywhere else.
Holly is extremely knowledgeable about bra fitting. I felt well looked after (and learned that life expectancy for a bra is considerably less than I'd thought).
The staff here is fantastic! So helpful and always help me find a large variety of options in my size. Covid protocols were great and everything was very clean and sanitary.
I was wearing the complete wrong size bra. The Pencil Test not only fitted me but it is such a comfortable and honest environment AND even though I needed a bit more support it did not mean I had to sacrifice on being sexy. I am so happy with the fitting a purchased I made. This will be my go to spot from now on.
I was so excited to find tons of fun and sexy bras in my unusual size. The service was respectful, kind, compassionate, and efficient. I won't go anywhere else for bras now.
I absolutely love coming here!! The employees are always Soooooooo nice and knowledgeable!! I haven't gone anywhere else to buy bras in years since my first visit. The bras feel amazing and look fantastic!! I recommend the Pencil Test to anyone who needs a bra!!
I’ve always been a fan of this store. The workers are knowledgeable & extremely helpful. Holly, is amazing as well! My breasts are thanking me!
I had a fantastic experience with Pencil Test. They have great expertise and a fantastic knowledge. My appointment was on time and their selection was also very good. Their prices were fair and I felt great about my fitting and my purchases. I drove quite a ways to go to this store and I am so grateful that I did.
Amazing customer service!
I've been there a couple times now and have thoroughly enjoyed my experience. They take a private and uncomfortable experience and make it very comfortable and pleasant. They're friendly and knowledgeable, and very nice to work with.
I love The Pencil Test. I discovered them a few years ago. They are professional and know there stuff. They have a huge variety. Who knew that you could have a bra that fits, is functional and looks amazing.
Always a pleasure to visit Pencil Test. The fitting was wonderful and I got two new beautiful bras!!! Thanks for always being so sweet 💚
Abby was great. I was reluctant to even come in w/COVID, but felt safe w/the appointment and precautions. I had about 6 or more bras I brought w/me that didn't work anymore and she suggested that we just start fresh -- and so we did. COVID has added some pounds, so I needed a bigger size. I'm depressed about that, but happy to be more comfortable!
I initially ordered items online & was so pleased to find out why in the past, even though I know my proper size- some bras fit & some didn't- had no idea there was UK sizing vs continental vs USA. I had some questions about sizing up vs down according to their online item descriptions. I called them up, told them the brand of my favorite bra,& asked which size I should get online & they helped me without hesitation or attitude. They know their stuff! I had to return only one item (bralette) because I wanted a snugger fit, so I made an appt for in person shopping (Yay COVID safety!) & they were just as helpful, even noticing that in some designs I should try a smaller band which all these years I never tried. Also, while bras might be cheaper on Amazon, I love supporting a local business that actually are EXPERTS at what they do- couldn't be more pleased.
The ONLY place I shop for bras. The Pencil Test never disappoints, and Renee is a sweetheart. I always end up buying multiple things every time I go. It’s so difficult to find cute bras for women with bigger breasts that don’t look old lady-ish. I am 22 and I love this place
As always, a wonderful experience! I brought my teen in to be fitted and it could not have been a more welcoming and perfect introduction to the world of bras. Thank you!
Had exactly what I was looking for. Have been here before with both of my daughters. Enjoyable experience every time!
Just went back for the second time! Excellent service and fit! So glad I found them. It's so hard to find attractive and well fitting bras and they have a lovely selection to meet your needs. I love the personal attention!
This is a dream come true! I am 51 years old and a natural 34G...my entire life has been squeezing into bras from Nordstrom...leaving me frustrated and squished into uncomfortable bras. Pencil Test are professionals that know their shit! The experience is actually FUN for the first time ever! And you leave knowing that your bra that you wear everyday...will fit and make you look and FEEL fabulous!!!!
I have been going to the ladies at the Pencil test for all my bra needs for years, but today was my daughters first ex8. And they did not disappoint! Great team, amazing product! I reccomend them to everyone!
Only place I buy bras from because it’s the only place that sells you bras that actually fit
Thank you so much for your help! So good!
The staff was so amazing and kind to me, they helped me make sure I got the best fit possible. Apparently I’d been wearing the wrong sized bra for years which lead to my back pain. They had so many styles to choose from which was so weird to me, being a bigger cup size I’m used to a very bland selection. The bras there are beautiful and most importantly offer support. I won’t be shopping anywhere else. Thank you guys!!
Amazing as always. Walked away with some great wire and wire-free options and even though I didn’t browse around the store, I know I saw all the best options for what I was looking for.
I left the quick appointment with four bras and some excitement. Since then, I have discarded 3 of the 4 bras that are definitely uncomfortable and too tight.
So, This boutique was great, I tried on a variety of Bras and honestly they were all perfect!! I should’ve gotten more, I’m so pleased.
It was my first time having a bra fitting and everyone was so friendly and helpful! Abby was the one who helped me and gave me a lot of options to work with. She sanitized the room before I entered and that made me feel really safe and comfortable. She gave me a lot of tips and advice in regards to bra wearing. I was able to find the right style of bra and I purchased 3 from them today! I'm super excited to wear them and I'm really satisfied with my experience!
I had such a great experience during my fitting with Renee. She was incredibly knowledgeable and attentive. I now know I’ve been wearing the wrong size for years, but with Renee’s help I now know the right fits for me, what to look for, and how a bra should look and feel. I don’t think I’ll be buying bras from anywhere but The Pencil Test from now on.
Absolutely love and would recommend
I absolutely loved my bra shopping experience. Molly helped me with the bra fitting session and she was very friendly and knowledgeable. Bra shopping experience has always been so intimidating for me until this time. Definitely going back and highly recommend this place!
I've been shopping here for years, I highly encourage others to check them out. Make the time to care for yourself. They treat my baubles like treasures. ;)
Great personalized service creating a positive experience. My daughter and I were able to purchase bras and we will definitely return to patronize this business.
Booked an appointment for today at The Pencil Test. The employees were friendly and extremely helpful with my needs. I was able to find four great bras for an excellent bargain. I have been a customer of this shop for several years and I am thankful they are able to remain open throughout the pandemic.
I sent my 18 yr old daughter by herself. I was prepared for a complete meltdown when she came home. She came home in a good mood and a bra. That tells me her experience was good and the sales person must have been fabulous.
I think the lady that helped me was Renee but I haven’t been fitted since I was teen and desperately needed a whole new set of bras. I was really nervous about going in but she made me feel really comfortable and at ease with the whole experience. She’s definitely a pro at her job because knew just what to pick for me to try and I walked out with 4 new amazingly comfortable and super cute bras that so so excited to start wearing.
Excellent experience, good social distancing policies, and I left with comfortable bras!
Ive been coming here for years, the Pencil Test is truly the best place. The staff is so friendly, knowledgable and helpful. I always leave with a smile, and feel so much better about my body! Thank you!
The pencil test is great very helpful and friendly bra fitting made easy
I absolutely love this shop! The staff is very knowledgeable about the products they sell and how to fit bras, very discrete, helpful and friendly. They have a wide selection of high quality garments and sizes. The shop itself is well organized, clean and comfortable, even during a pandemic. I wish I had more large-busted friends so I could recommend this place more often!
This was my first bra fitting and Abby was really helpful. I found 3 bras and now know my true size! Prices are reasonable and the styles are sexy and comfortable. I highly recommend!
Such an excellent experience and I got such beautiful bras! Thanks for a lovely experience.
Best selection in town! The support is out of this world, yes the bras, but also the sales staff. They are so helpful! I’ve bought my bras exclusively from pencil test for years and never once had one regret. Let’s keep these folks in business!
I love The Pencil Test! The employees are friendly and helpful. They’ll check to make sure you have the right fit. Bra shopping that’s not awkward or frustrating! Yay!
Had an amazing experience getting fitted and buying bras at the Pencil Test. I have never been to another store that had so many bra choices in my odd to fit size, nor more knowledgeable and kind staff! I have a small ribcage and a large bust and it's been impossible to find properly fitting bras in the past, this place is life changing and the staff are amazing!!
Once again, The Pencil Test comes through! Thorough knowledge, attentive and kind. One area I had never bothered to find a correctly fitting bra for - athletics. I walked out with two sports bras that fit well and are comfortable. The staff, selection and service are always so great!
If you have never been here, You need to go! your boobs will thank you (so will you back)! The staff is AMAZING.
Always a pleasure coming into the shop. Everyone is welcoming and very helpful. Thanks again ladies!
Such a pleasant experience. Went in for a fitting for the first time post-partum, post-breastfeeding, and Abby made expert recs, listening to my needs and feedback till we got to the perfect selection (in less than 30 min). Felt comfortable with covid protocols too. Highly recommended!
Really grateful for Abby's assistance during my bra fitting appointment! She brought me so many choices, which all fit perfectly. She really listened to what I was looking for and delivered! She even brought me something outside my comfort zone that I ended up LOVING. I wasn't sure how I'd like the appointment-style experience during COVID (I've been many times, all pre-COVID), but I ended up buying more than I ever have so it definitely worked for me.
This was honestly the very best experience I have ever had bra shopping. I’m so appreciative of my appointment and the help I was given.
This has been my favorite bra store for years. It still is! I purchased my first properly sized bra here seven years ago and it changed my life. I had been told I was a 36DDD for over a decade when I am actually a 30H. The Pencil Test put me in my true size. If you have big breasts and have never felt like you were in the right size, getting a fitting here will likely change your life too. My appointment today was awesome. It felt super safe and I was well taken care of, as always.
One of the bras I recently purchased didn’t fit quite right. Kyra helped me exchange it for a different one that feels great. The process was supportive and straightforward. Thank you!
This was amazing! They explained everything to me and helped me understand my shape and what to do with my boobs and how things were going to affect my clothes and body. I don’t think I’ve ever been properly sitting in a bra. Ever. It is making a world of difference to my clothing fit, how my body feels, and pain. I’ll be back for more. They also helped my sister. They were super nice and amazing. Especially during the pandemic.
I loved my experience here. The staff was incredibly knowledgable. Will absolutely be back!
I had a great experience. Staff was amazing
This was an incredibly body positive experience and I'm thrilled with my new bras! Every woman needs a good bra fitting. It's a life-changer.
This store is amazing! The staff are friendly and warm, and also wizards at helping me find a bra that fits well. I'm so pleased with the buying experience, and with my new bras.
The best experience I've ever had. Holly was so knowledgeable and knew what my daughter needed in a bra. She even knew the state I was from by my speaking. We bought two amazing bras from here. We will always by our bras from this wonderful place by super nice people.
Holly was amazing. Great people and a great place. Very friendly and personable. Thank you
Love this place. I've been coming here for years and always leave with well-fitting bras that have the look I want. And the new appointment only in store shopping is a really wonderful experience.
The staff was supportive and informative in the way I hoped. Body positivity, encouragement, kindness and wisdom marked our exchange. I wasn’t really educated about bras and underwear as an adolescent and appreciated the information and advice about my options and how to care for intimate apparel.
Abby was SO GOOD. She just looked at me and could tell my size. Then she brought me a ton of bras that fit well and looked great. The only problem was deciding on which ones to choose. I love this place.
Abby was fantastic in helping me find the right size quickly. I was impressed at the huge selection of stock available for someone my size (small band, very large cups). I will absolutely be coming back! Thank you!
Such a wonderful place!
This place is the best! I have been coming here for a few years and every experience is better than the last. I just had a fitting and these ladies had everything down to keep a big chested lady safe from covid. I could not have been mor satisfied. AND I left with four amazing wireless bras that I am obsessed with!
My favorite bra shop!! I’ve been there twice now, and both times I had the most amazing, comfortable experience. The staff are all so nice, and they make it so easy to find a perfectly fitting bra! Also, they have some really reasonable prices so what more could you ask for.
Every time I come here I’m so happy with my experience and purchases. They really make it soooo easy for you, and the bras are quality!
Amazing selection and knowledge. I felt very welcome and had a huge range of items to try. Health and safety protocols were fantastic and easy. Could not recommend more! Go!
This is my second time here and I can’t imagine going anywhere else. I can’t believe it took me this long to learn what size I really am and how a bra should actually fit!! They are all amazing and so helpful, and I can’t recommend this place enough.
I would give this place 10 stars! They are very helpful and patient. Going above and beyond my expectations. They have a large selection of great bras.
The ladies at The Pencil Test really know their stuff! I have been exclusively buying my bras here for the last few years, and it is well worth the drive up from Salem. In the past, I’ve spent hours trying to get fitted at Nordstrom and walked out empty handed. The ladies at The Pencil Test just look at me, and bring me a pile of bras that fit beautifully. Fantastic price point, fantastic people. Highly recommended!
This place is amazing!! Go here and you won't regret it. I went to The Pencil Test because of reviews like this. I don't normally write my own reviews. I have been looking for bras that fit my whole life, but I've been on an active search for around 3 years. I've been to a lot of stores and gotten a lot of fittings. I was regularly told I was a 36C or 36D. They were always tight and uncomfortable. My breasts were always popping out. Almost every day, I had to awkwardly shift my breasts around so they were more comfortable. At The Pencil Test, I walked in (masked up and feeling safe), the woman had me pull my shirt tight on my back and front, walked away, and brought me a bra that fits! I've never had so much fun trying on bras. I got to try different colors and styles and they all fit. They're also a range of costs ($30-$100+), which was a relief. I can't recommend this place enough. I don't even live in Portland (I was post-negative test and visiting my family), but I will go back here every chance I get. Or using their online store! Can't wait to go back.
This was the easiest and fastest bra fitting experience of my life. Well worth the investment. I will be a customer for life.
I cannot recommend this place enough! After realizing I had been wearing the completely wrong bra size for years, I finally booked an appointment to get sized and invest in some new bras. Everyone was incredibly friendly and helpful and I was provided with tons of options while never feeling pressured. Now I’ve got a few brands and sizes to look for and I will definitely be coming back for all my bra needs
You won’t get a better bra fitting anywhere in the Portland Metropolitan area! I have been shopping with Pencil Test for many years now and actually look forward to buying bras now because of the fine staff at The Pencil Test!
Having boobs has historically been a nightmare for me. That is until I went to The Pencil Test. Shopping here has been so wonderful and has resulted in many tears of joy and also many conversations where I say things like “I found this awesome store for big boobs!” I’m so glad this store exists! The staff is so helpful and supportive and so are their bras! 100/100
What an amazing experience! Abby was phenomenal. Really appreciated the one-on-one time with experienced/knowledgeable staff!
This place was like heaven on earth to someone who literally hasn't been able to buy a bra in a physical store in about 6 years. I haven't found a store that carries my cup sizes in ages, and not only that, but their staff also perfectly sized me in about 15 seconds and brought over endless options to try on. I'm used to shopping online, hoping something will fit, and being constantly disappointed. This was an amazing change of pace. My fitting expert was an amazing help, the store is lovely, I will honestly never buy a bra anywhere else as long as I'm in Portland.
The Pencil Test is awesome. I hate, hate, hate bra shopping because I'm so big up front. Keira was so kind and helpful. She made it easy to find bras that fit and felt good. Thank you! I highly recommend The Pencil Test. I don't shop for bras anywhere else.
I LOVE The Pencil Test!! I was so glad to see they were doing safe fittings and still open. It’s always been so hard to find bras that fit. Every time I’ve been to the store, I’ve been greeted warmly, sized correctly, and come away with perfect-fitting bras! Especially when my cup sized changed recently, I knew there was only one place to go - and it did not disappoint. There was even one on sale in my exact size! With the right bras, I feel like getting dressed every day is such a better experience. Couldn’t recommend more!
This was the best experience I have ever had trying on bras. Everything was professional and I left feeling great about my chest (a very unusual feeling for me). Thank you so much!
The Pencil Test is the best! These ladies really know their stuff, and are always so helpful and somehow make bra fitting and buying a fun experience. I made the mistake of buying some cute looking bras at one of those Instagram stores- the fit was terrible and the quality was meh. Never again. Pencil Test all the way!
I had a great experience! Super helpful and fun staff, and I finally found some bras that fit! A swimsuit too :)
Great great experience! Only place I will buy my bras from just off first experience Definitely recommending this place to all my peeps!
The Pencil Test staff and inventory is unmatched. They will guide you towards bras that actually fit and support you. It will change your life! I've been shopping here for many years and will continue to support this awesome local company.
I love this place. Always have amazing personalized service and everyone is so knowledgeable. The best part is ALWAYS finding a bra that fits well that I love!
Once I discovered The Pencil Test I no longer shop for bras anywhere else. The staff is lovely and so helpful and patient during fittings. Whether I try on 3 or 15 different bras my salesperson gives me her guidance and full attention. Thank you Pencil Test!! Your product and service is exceptional.
Renee was great! I was able to get exactly what I needed!!
I HAVE NOT PAID FOR A BRA FROM ANYPLACE ELSE FOR JUST OVER 5 YEARS.... NOTHING LEFT TO SAY EXCEPT THANK YOU!!!!!
Today I was helped by Abby who was very nice, listened to my needs, made me feel comfortable, and was spot on about the sizes she was putting me in, seeing as I didn't know what size I was currently. Ive been coming to the pencil test for 10 years now and have never had a bad experience. The girls that work there are always so nice, professional and knowledgeable. The quality of their bras are great and the prices are more than fair. I HIGHLY recommend The Pencil Test.
Appointment was easy to make. Store was very Covid compliant. K who helped me was wonderful. They listened to what I was looking for, asked questions, made suggestions, was never pushy but always helpful. I highly recommend and I will return.
LOVED!!! It was such a great experience with Kyra and I over my new lingerie. Truly feel beautiful 😍
On the advice of a good friend,I went in on Friday for myself and because of the fantastic experience I took my 16 year old daughter back on Saturday. I have never felt comfortable in a bra fitting or for that matter in a bra. I thought I was abnormal in my size because nothing ever fit in the mall stores and they certainly weren't pretty. This was a totally new experience for me and our daughter. We felt "normal" and dare I say pretty. We don't ever want to shop somewhere else again for our bras! I never knew that this is how a bra should feel! Thank you so much for such a positive experience!!
Always a great visit. Staff are so well trained. The woman who helped me was a boob wizard. She got my size and helped me find what I needed. Highly recommend and will keep coming back.
A completely fantastic experience! Knowledgeable staff, GREAT service, great selection. I came away with 2 attractive styles. One is seriously the most comfortable bra I can ever remember buying. I will be back!!
Very pleasant and helpful
What an amazing experience! Love this store!
Great experience, as usual. I got even more attention than usual, as there is one or two customers allowed in the store and by appointment only. The selection on the bras was more extensive than I remember from before - both in styles and colors. Thank you, Pencil test!
The owner and staff are wonderful. They will do a fitting and find the best fitting and most comfortable bra for your body. You may even learn the proper way to put on a bra. I am 60 yrs old and learned the proper way. Anyone needing larger cups they carry the bra's. Highly recommend.
I truly appreciate the courtesy of an in-person visit! I somehow missed the name of the lovely person who helped me, but it is incredible to go into a bra store and be met by someone who actually knows how to support me! And physically trying bras on is key for me to get a good one. Thank you to the person who helped me for being there. Thank you to the owner for keeping the place open.
Would give ten stars if I could! Been desperately trying to find a bra that actually fits, all the advice and chain store employees had been unable to size me right. Walked in for my appointment, first bra I was given solved my main problem. Got bras I love and the science behind what had been happening because of the bras I’d been wearing, plus advice on how wearing the right bra might change my size and what to come back and look for when that happens. Amazing. Seriously, thank you ♥️
This was truly the best bra experience I have ever had. I am a completely different size than I've ever been, and the bras I got are so comfortable and supportive, without hurting my shoulders! I could not recommend going to get fitted more to anyone with breasts, especially if you're a C cup or above.
If I could give this place more then 5 stars I would. I haven’t been properly fitted on over 11 years and came today and Holly was the absolute best. She had me try on many options until we got the perfect fit. I walked out feeling like a brand new woman. My new favorite bra shop HANDS DOWN
So happy to have experienced what a difference a good fitting bra can make. Recommended to my friend who struggles finding options in her size like myself! The owner knows her stuff!
It's always excellent coming here! I'm a 38J and they always have at least at least 10 bras for me to try on - cute ones! Always exceptional service and very welcoming.
I’ve been going here for 2 years. I am so happy they have found a way to stay open during the pandemic. It is impossible for me to find a bra without trying it on so to be able to still do that was awesome! It is also the only place that sells bras that fit me
Absolutely pleasurable experience! Excellent service. Professional. Experts! I only trust The Pencil Test for my bra needs. And I always rave about them to family and friends.
I have been shopping here for several years now. They are amazing at fitting bras and helping you find exactly what you want. Even If this means trying on 20 or 30. They are amazing and their swimwear is adorable. Thanks again pencil test
I've been coming for a couple years and always appreciate the skilled and friendly service.
My bra shopping appointment was wonderful! I enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere and individual attention I received from my knowledgeable and personable sales lady. She gave good advice and definitely knew her stuff! I walked out with three bras and I’m a happy customer! Yay!
Wonderful fitting. Bra shopping is always a bit of a nightmare but everyone was very sweet which made it much easier :)
I LOVE THIS PLACE! They know their stuff and always offer the best customer service along with beautiful product. I scheduled my private fitting and walked away with 4 gorgeous bras that make me feel like a million bucks!
What I appreciate most is that I'm given explanations during the fitting process as well as advice. Large cup size doesn't always equal consistent shape amongst breasts. To have comments and suggestions given regarding bra styles and such can be very illuminating. I adore this establishment!
Great products, great staff!
Wow!!! Another fantastic bra fitting at the Pencil Test. Staff was incredible. Extremely knowledgeable and patient. Felt like my concerns and needs were heard, understood, and met. Thank you!!!
I’ve brought each of my four daughters here and it’s been a confidence-building, wonderful experience. Holly is knowledgeable and kind and we’ll definitely be back.
This was my first time in the shop. I drove over an hour just get there as it’s hard to find a shop like this that has quality intimate bras in my size. I appreciated the appointment and was promptly met by Abby. We both wore face masks and sanitized our hands. It was cool that she knew my size by seeing me in my base layered tank top. She went right to the task at hand and the first bra was a perfect fit. I told her the issues I’ve had with other bras and she thought I’ve been misfitted with the wrong size. From there it was a marathon with underwire bras, t-shirt bras and no wire bras. All so beautiful, colorful with pretty details. She was so gracious, kind and attentive helping me. Abby was always within hearing distance if I needed anything. She kept the fitting room cleared of ones that didn’t work and in the end, less than an hour I left with a handful of gorgeous supportive perfectly fit bras. I know my boyfriend will be quite happy when he sees them, too. Thank you for this personal experience. I will definitely be back as a regular customer.
Holly knew just by looking at me what my style and size were, I got all my sexy and practical in the bag by the end of the visit. She was fast and intuitive and I love what I walked away with! Thanks Pencil Test!
So many, many years of bra shopping. After shopping here, I am ruined for any other lingerie store. Used to dread it, but Holly and her crew take all the guesswork out of it, no judgement, just exactly what I need/want! HEARTS
Super helpful and knowledgeable! I came home with two bras I love.
I rarely write reviews, but I love this place!! Holly was a champion bra-fitter! The options were great and reasonably priced. I am so pleased with my purchases.
Great experience, super knowledgeable and helpful staff, and a big selection. My favorite bra store!
I have always hated bra shopping because I always felt discouraged and too big, however that changed today. My experience at the pencil test today was amazing!! First because of the knowledgeable and wonderful staff that put me at ease and gave many really cute and comfortable (but also sexy) bras to try on and they fit perfectly!! This is my new favorite store for sure!! Give them a try, you won’t regret it, in fact you’ll be so happy you did!
Amazing! Attentive! Awesome! Gave advice to buy fewer bras, which I ignored, but appreciated the sentiment. After the first "test" bra literally everything fit! Which has never happened before. Not my first time in the shop,but my fist time where the whole selection of bras were available to me. And definitely will not be the last. I really enjoyed the appointment system,as well as the other covid protocols. Really made me feel safe doing such intimate shopping
Great as always. Terrific service, wide selection of bras.
My experience at The Pencil Test was amazing. Abby was so wonderful and incredibly helpful with my fitting. She was personable and helped me find multiple bras! I will definitely return in the future!
This place was amazing and the staff are super friendly. I took my daughter there because we were having trouble finding bras that fit her. We will be going back for sure.
They always have exactly what I need!
Wonderful service, high quality bras. The attendant set me up with wonderful and comfortable options. I feel like I have a bra that REALLY fits me for the first time in my life.
The staff at the pencil test are amazing. I wouldn’t go anywhere else.
This place and the great people who work here are superb. Get yourself here with a quickness cause you are probably wearing the wrong bra. Not only was the experience wonderful but I walked out of there breathing better. Its worth every cent and reasonably priced.
Totally amazing experience. I felt super comfortable there and everything was really pandemic conscious. Plus they have a little french bulldog named Cricket that helped me at checkout! I'm going to be getting all my family members gift cards to this place for the holidays. Life is too short to have an uncomfortable bra!
So happy I finally made my way down to the Pencil Test. I’d heard so many good things about this place and boy did they deliver. I believe the person who helped me was named Abby. I was basically sized by sight, compared to what I told her the A Bra That Fits calculator gave me. She was accurate and brought over plenty of options for me to try. I felt that they really cared about making sure I was comfortable and wearing not only the right size, but the right style for my shape. Honestly I’ve already told many people about this place before I came, and I’ll surely continue to recommend it to anyone I come across that needs a Bra That Fits ! I also felt like they were taking COVID precautions seriously and that made me feel safe.
Outstanding !! Finally an experience that delivers customer service, fit, function and flair !!!
5 stars as always! I brought my teen girls for their first "real" fitting and they were both thrilled with the process. I also had my mom (78yo) who had not had a bra fitting in more years that I have lived. She too was so happy to find options and most importantly COMFORT with a bra. I can't recommend this store or experience more. I will be back again for sure! Thanks ladies!!
LOVE this store! They give amazing service and have such a wonderful selection of styles, sizes, and colors. TPT did a great job of pivoting as soon as the pandemic started. This is the only place, storefront or online, I buy bras. My bre@sts have never looked nor felt better!
Awesome service. Great selection of different bras for large chested women! I appreciate having more than one type of bra to try on. Making an appointment was easy, and the employees were knowledgeable and helpful. Thank you! Will be back next time I need bras!
I wish I could give Pencil Test one hundred stars. What a truly fantastic shopping experience. Instead of getting overwhelmed picking out bras myself, Holly sized me by looking at me (and was 100% correct) and then brought me bras to try on. I went home with five new bras that I absolutely love, half of which I never would have thought to try on. On top of all that, it was great to have an appointment and know that social distancing would be practiced. I felt safe, well taken care of, and confidant that I was buying the right size. I’ll be telling all of the ladies in my life about this place.
A friend suggested I check out this place when I realized I had no idea what my size was. I felt so incredibly comfortable getting naked (which is not a thing I’m comfortable with normally) and was brought exactly what I needed. It was fantastic.
Love the attention and hemp
Thanks for the enjoyable experience.
Being a big busted gal, I have always shopped at the pencil test since moving to Portland several years ago. Holly and Abby were very helpful and found the perfect sports bra for my girls. And it felt COVID-safe. I’m a physician, so safety is extra important to me. I’m excited to go run my 10 miles in my sports bra now!
I highly recommend them! They were able to help us find the correct sizing then brought many bras in to try, all different styles based on what we told them we were looking for.. They made it a very easy and comfortable process.
Amazing! I loved how many options I had and how helpful Abby was, listening to me and offering suggestions. I will absolutely be coming back in the future. Thank you!!
LOVE LOVE this place! Every time I come the service is amazing and I always walk away happy with what I bought!
Holly is AMAZING!!! Must of tried on a dozen or more bras & sports bras. She helped determine I was wearing wrong size by far. Now my girls are properly fitted & bras fit and look amazing. I will be back in February after my surgery to be refitted ago. Everyone go here - get fitted- and love the way your girls look in a properly fitted bra. Thx Holly 🙂
Abbey was my first associate to help me find my new size. A week later I came back to fine tune my fitting preferences with Holly and really figured out where my needs were for different bra types. I’ll only come here for the rest of my boob’s needs.
Amazing experience. First time I’ve ever enjoyed bra shopping. They’ve become my only store for bras.
Love the appointment slots, felt so COVID safe! Good work!
Love the Pencil Test. Staff is very knowledgeable in helping to get just the right fit!
THIS PLACE IS AMAZING! Before I found The Pencil Test, I could never find a bra that fit. I'd tried every size at every department store I could and nothing ever worked. My very first hitting, Holy nailed my size on sight. I've been going back ever since. I went today to get some new bras knowing my size changed and she was so very helpful with finding me bras I liked and would work for my needs. There is no question. This is the place to buy bras. Period.
I have spent countless hours shopping for bras. Come to find out the most efficient and courteous service along with excellent supply was in my backyard. So grateful.
Thank you Holly for your high energy and expertise. The shops works exactly as described so expectations are in alignment for a successful and safe experience. The most important thing is that I can live the rest of my life with a properly fitting bra! What a difference!
Such an amazing experience. Thank you for treating my sister so well and helping her in starting her new life after a big loss.
I love the Pencil Test. Abby was super helpful in making sure I was fitted property and then brought me a ton of beautiful options to choose from. Bra shopping is never this easy anywhere else, especially for larger-chested ladies. I left feeling great about my experience and purchase.
The Pencil Test is literally the tits. If you have boobs of any size but especially a prodigious chest, you need to go to The Pencil Test. Holly was amazing and fit me into 4 great bras that I'm super happy with and comfortable in. Can't recommend them enough!
Always always helpful! Wonderful staff that works their magic and listens to your needs! I will never shop for bras anywhere else! The Pencil Test is my jam!
I seriously am amazed at how quickly they fit me and found the best bras! The fitter was able to tell my size through my shirt and we found bras that were supportive and sexy! Major win for this single momma.
Excellent service. Great selection of bras. I have come home with perfect fitting, beautiful, functional bras every time. Heart eyes forever.
Holly was terrific. She was spot on with size and comfort. So happy to finally have the right fit!
As always treated excellently like I belong! As a genderqueer non-binary person it’s great to know this store supports me in more ways than one :)
Thank you!!! The attendant who helped me was wonderful, very patient and kind. There were tons of choices and the new bra is fantastic.
My girls are in great hands when I come to The Pencil Test. Holly is an expert sizer and assessor of what may work and she keeps her eyes open to make sure I'm getting great value. The appointment system and COVID protocol work really well.
Making an appointment was easy and in within days. Abby helped me and was friendly, knowledgeable and put me at ease with what is always a tough experience for me. Thank you Abby. I will be back and spreading the word on my experience. Keep up the great work!
My teenage daughter had the most inclusive and outstanding service from Holly this morning at the fitting. She was informative, educational, and didn’t force sell us anything. I’m so grateful for the Pencil Test for helping my daughter accept + embrace her body instead of trying to hide it. Sure was a confidence boost every Mother would be glad to see for her teenager. I’m excited my daughter will know what to expect from a bra the rest of her life and not suffer through ill fitting, unsupportive or pain causing bras. We will be back next spring for the super cute swim suits my girl was eyeing too!
Had a great appointment and left with 3 wonderful bras that were exactly what I was looking for! Thanks for the help!
Such a fantastic selection of bras (lace, moulded cup, wire free in multiple styles and colors that all fit?! incredible, but true!), especially for someone who feels like they can't find their size (28FF) aaanywhere else. And—as if that weren't enough— The Pencil Test also has wonderful, friendly, non-pushy, super knowledgeable staff. Can't recommend it highly enough.
Absolutely lived the experience!! The stylist (forgot her name, older white women) was very friendly and super knowledgeable. I had been in need of bras for a long time and decided that it was time, so I went and the minute I walked in we got to business. She took a look at me grabbed a couple bras for me to try on she was so spot on. I love the styles they have, they have beautiful bras in a large size cup (which is really hard to find). Their pricing might be a little spend to some but when you have a small waist and a large bust its definitely worth it! Beautiful and comfortable bras, friendly and knowledgeable staff, who could ask for more! I ended up getting 4 bras for a great price and a great experience. I would give more than 5 stars if I could. Definitely recommend them.
Such amazing service and such an awesome experience being able to try on as many as I like and not being in a rush for the next person. Love the online store as well!
This place is the absolute BEST. I have struggled for years to find bras that fit well and when I have, the options have been so limited. My mom and I both had fittings and walked away with some fantastic items. The very best part of the experience though was working with Abby who was kind, incredibly knowledgeable, and totally committed to helping us find things that didn’t just work, but made us feel comfortable and confident. We will be back again and again!
What a great store! My fitter was very knowledgeable and was a great help finding what firsts ME best! Highly recommended!!!
Worked with a really nice lady to find some everyday bras that made me feel supported and cute! Definitely plan on doing all my bra/swimsuit shopping here!
Excellent service and help, as always. I needed nursing bras and I left with exactly what I needed. Thank you!!!
Amazingly helpful. My life has changed since I was referred to Pencil Test by a friend. No more bra frustration, and to know the bra fits the way it should, is such a confidence booster!
I've been going to the pencil test since the first store on Alberta. I haven't gone anywhere else since. It's always a wonderful, personal experience.
I had struggled with finding a comfortable, stylish well fitting bra for a long time - and like that in less than 30 minutes I was wearing one. It was a relief to not have pushy sales techniques quotas driving the sale - the bras sold themselves. I bought 4 and feel great.
Had a fantastic time. Easy to book, my fitter was very friendly (I’m sorry I forgot your name, my memory is the worst) she got me fitted quickly and made it fun!
Holly was awesome! She is so knowledgeable and helped me so much. She gave me so many options and made me feel like she genuinely wanted to offer her expertise! Would recommend to anyone 😊
This place is so amazing and welcoming and I can’t tell you how comfortable I was... I hate to bra shop and they made it fun!
Abby is super friendly and made me feel at ease right away. *** Highly recommend!
Extremely good service. The fitting was very simple and quick. Trying on various colors and styles took longer than finding the size. They checked on me regularly during the hour and it was very helpful if I needed a different size of a specific bra. They also were very understanding of how i usually wear chest binders and seem to be very trans friendly. They also have pride flags in the window! Definitely recommend to anyone in need of a better bra.
Amazing experience, and found some beautiful bras! It’s definitely been a struggle in the past finding bras that fit, so excited to find my new favorite store!
The service I received at The Pencil Test was great. Abby was super helpful even though my size was a bit small for their specialty. Thanks so much
What an excellent experience! I am so happy The Pencil Test is open for appointments. It took less than 20-minutes to find 3 perfect new bras. Thank you!
Loved my experience! Holly was so patient and knowledgeable, two things that are really appreciated when you’ve been wearing wrong sized bras wrong all your life (lol). I am a GG cup and I ended up with an everyday, a strapless and a bralette. Will be returning because now I can find stylish and comfortable bras in my (actual) bra size 🤗 Thanks so much!
Perfect service!! Very polite and helpful and patient with me trying to find the right bras and fit! Thank you!
Really just had a wonderful experience getting fitted here in a comfortable and welcoming space. Left with 2 bras that fit perfectly and ordered 2 more from the website.
I arrived with my three teenage daughters for our fittings. Holly was welcoming and immediately put the girls at ease. I was so impressed with her interaction with them. The girls and I joked that she had superpowers as she didn't even need to measure us she just looked at how our current bras were fitting and told us our sizes. I have never been anywhere where every bra brought to me fit! It was a wonderful experience to get to focus on choosing the color and style I liked instead of just hoping I could find SOMETHING in our unique sizes. I am so grateful my girls now have bras that give them confidence instead of feeling they want to hide behind sports bras because nothing in the storea fit them. Thank you Holly! We will only be shopping at the pencil test from now on!
Love this store! I'd been putting off bra shopping because they weren't open (I don't like clothes shopping online). So happy to come in to get a strapless bra for my wedding and a daily one. They were helpful as always and so nice!
I went in for the first time and couldn’t be happier. They helped me figure out my size, which was much different than what I had been told other places like department stores and mall shops. They had a huge selection, and everything was reasonably priced and cute! I was excited to find bras that didn’t look like they were made for my grandma. There were even swimsuits! Their covid procedures made me feel safe and secure. I will be back for sure.
This is my local go to shop! The staff are knowledgeable, helpful and TRULY get you into the right size. The COVID safety precautions are perfect. Support this woman owned, local small business!
I had a great experience getting refitted for a bra. I stopped my very long breastfeeding journey about a year ago and since then dropped a cup and my breasts changed shape. Unevenly! This shop will help you feel and look great. My new bras are amazing including a sexy sunshine yellow bra and matching panties.
I had genuinely the best experience at my fitting and everyone is so willing to help you and have you feel comfortable in your own skin! Thank you all!
Holly the owner is AMAZING!!! She took the time to ask and listen to what I was looking for, explained what would fit best for my shape, and then provided me several options to try. My first true bra fitting. Previous VS girl...they do not do proper fittings. Bought 3, will definitely be back for more!
What an amazing place. I was welcomed by Holly and taken back to try on some bras. I was shocked how off I was on the size of bra I was wearing. She was so great at asking questions to get the perfect bras for me. I tried on about 20 bras. She was always there to help me decide if it was a good fit or not. It was just an amazing experience and now I have bras that actually fit.
I have gone to both the current locations that are open. The store owner Holly (I believe that's her name) always goes above and beyond! I will forever recommend this place to every one I know!! Thanks for helping out us curvy girls!!
Great fitting today!
Fantastic!! Holly knows more about bras and boobs than pretty much anyone on the planet! I learn something new every visit. You will not leave disappointed 🥰
The Pencil Test has been my bra shop since Holly opened her first location on the other side of Alberta. The wonderful ladies she has hired were so helpful and polite and cool. Their COVID setup is smart and made me feel safe. Thanks Pencil Test for making me feel supported 😜 during these crazy times.
Good bras are so hard to find. The ladies here make it so much easier! I felt so comfortable and supported...mentally and in the bras they choose for me. The appointment set up worked out so well for COVID shopping. I highly recommend this shop. They are simply wonderful!!
Great experience. Abby was great in her assistance and eye for detail for what I said I needed. Loved all my purchases!
Always love the customer service and fitting advice at The Pencil Test. Thank you!
A fun and personalized experience. The girls (haha) and I were very happy when we left the store!
This was my child’s first fitting, and the person assisting us was just the right mix of helpful (explaining things, making adjustments, and bringing a variety of styles and colors) and hands-off (respecting my shy kid’s privacy, standing back, asking for consent for every single thing she did). Very successful trip!
Finally!!! Bras that fit properly. These ladies are EXPERTS...had me sized up just by looking and the fit was spot on! They were extremely helpful, friendly and knowledgeable!! Made me feel so much more confident!! Thank you...I will be sending friends your way!!
Had an absolutely wonderful experience with Abby today. She was delightful, knowledgeable, efficient and fun to work with! I also had a chance to chat with Kira, who was equally as welcoming. I work in retail sales and know how hard it is to cultivate talent like that. What a great team. Even with a substantial discount at Nordstrom, I will continue to do my lingerie shopping with you. Thank you! Elizabeth
if you are a busty gal that has always struggled with finding a bra option that fit, you owe it to yourself to visit the pencil test! Holly is kind, smart, and very responsive to what you're looking for. Treat Your Self!
I recommend your shop to every woman or teen I know! I love your selection and especially the knowledgeable and helpful staff. My girls and I LOVE your store!!!
Wonderful experience. Very knowledgable and attentive. I'm in my 30's and wish I had had an appointment like this when I was first buying bras. I was fitted and also instructed how a to wear the bra. I had been wearing mine quite low and scooting it up was something that hadn't even occurred to me. If you are thinking about having a bra fitting don't hesitate just book the appointment. You will not be disappointed.
For those of us who are on the bustier side- this place is a MUST. The staff is so helpful and knowledgeable and got me into the perfect fit for “the girls”. Gave me lots of options and made sure I walked out there with the perfect bras. I can’t recommend this place enough , they are simply the best!!!
Fast, professional and they make you feel comfortable the entire time!
Holly is very good at finding the proper size - and quickly! You can tell she knows what she is doing. She’s easy to be with, I did not feel nervous or shy. She put me at ease. Very safe in these Covid times. thanks - came away with 3 new beautiful bras.
Staff is always super helpful, professional, and friendly. It is all by appointment only right now, but easy enough to schedule online. They took their time and offered sizes up or down whenever particular fitting issues occurred, but most things they brought me were 90-100% good fit. Super happy as I am a weird size of 36-O (36k UK)
Abby had 8 or 8 pulled for me to try on, kept 3.fantastic service
Love this place and their supportive staff! Only buy my bras here! So nice to have a place to find bras for larger breasts and have pretty choices. Thank you for a personal and supportive (yes I said it) experience.
Was nervous to get my fitting at first, but Abby (hope I spelled that right) was super helpful and friendly. The bras I bought were affordable, cute and the most comfortable I’ve ever worn! Thank you :)
Do This. EVERY WOMAN IN THIS CITY! Go to this place and get a bra that fits you properly. PS It'll be so pretty.
What a great store! I had an appointment because of COVID and the staff were friendly, attentive, and careful to follow safety guidelines. I've gone to them for my intimates since I moved here a few years ago. Really are great! Knowledgeable and friendly!
Great, again! This time for my daughter. First experience where she's had a selection of bras and needed to choose (as opposed to just *maybe* one that worked). She hasn't stopped talking about how comfortable she has felt since bringing home her selections to enjoy!
