As a local resident, breast cancer survivor and inflicted with Alopecia Universalis (total, permanent hair loss), Dale Enman is fully aware of the needs of the women on the South Shore of Nova Scotia.
Enman’s business, All About You Lingerie & Wig Boutique, marked its first year in business in September. Enman and her staff have become a valuable resource for women of the South Shore. Fear and stress are two big factors that affect anyone with an illness, and Enman and her team at All About You have created a safe and supportive environment for women who have lost or are losing their hair or need specialty bras to accommodate prosthetics.
“All women deserve the same shopping experience no matter our health, age or figure,” she said. “We all should be able to go into a store without an appointment and have a selection of beautiful, quality products to choose from.”
The boutique is her way of helping women feel proud of who they are in a place that is supportive and friendly, with knowledgeable staff that will fit customers into the proper bra or wig that best suits their lifestyles.
Enman’s first-hand experience gives her knowledge in quality products and compassion in service. The team is dedicated to making women feel good when the walk out the door. Many women arrive emotional and stressed and are able to let the tears go for just a few minutes as they look in the mirror and feel good about themselves, she said.
There is no other one stop shop in Nova Scotia that addresses the variety of needs for women, she adds. The store carries a variety of products including Lingerie by Anita, Amoena, Elomi, Fantasie, Goddess, Wacoal, Calvin Klien, Chantelle, and Blush panties, to fit all sizes and shapes. The line of wigs is supplied by Norika, Jon Reneau, Raquel Welch, Revlon, and Ellen Wille.
