Mother’s Day is just around the corner. Hope you’ve got something special planned for this wonder woman. Please don’t tell us it’s a bunch of Chrysanthemums – yes, we get that they end in “mums” – but they’ll justwither away. Fluffy slippers? Too fuddy-duddy. A box of chocolates? You’re going to gobble them all up, right?
Never fear, BOSIC is here! We’ve got two great specials that for your mum (or even the mother of your kids) is going to really appreciate. Even better, you can book these specials through the entire month of May. After all, we believe Mother’s day should last all month!

Mother’s Day Mum-to-be Offer
As women we tend to put ourselves last – the kids, the ageing parents, the partner, heck, even the family dog come before our needs. So let’s use Mother’s Day as a friendly reminder to take care of some small but significant life issues that need your undivided attention ASAP.
May we remind you to…
- Find the right sports bra
The mere thought of “bra shopping” is daunting enough; even more so when you’re searching for a sports bra that’s supportive yet comfy. First, try on a sports bra and spot jog in front of a changing room mirror. If your breasts jiggle up and down too much, you’re not getting enough support. Next, reach your arms up overhead and circle them a few times in each direction. If the bra shifts, if the straps slip, or if it chafes, it’s not a good fit.
- Avoid hidden sugar
Sugar is everywhere – and is so addictive. If you’re the primary grocery shopper in your home, the best tip is to avoid bringing home the bad stuff in the first place. When you’re at the supermarket, scan the ingredients list. If a packaged product has sugar listed in the first five ingredients, avoid it like the plague. Also skip anything which contains syrup or ends in -ose (sucrose, maltose, dextrose, high fructose corn syrup).
- Do a breast self-examination
Don’t put it off any longer – check your breasts regularly and get familiar with how they look and feel. Check all the way from your armpit right up to our collarbone. Look for lumps, thickening, dimpling, redness or flaky skin, nipple discharge, pain and change in shape or size. There are many tutorials online. Trust your gut instinct – if you feel something’s amiss, see a doctor immediately.
