Video: Havre sports bra designer Enell pursues Oprah | Under the Big Sky

October 8, 2018View for printing

Watch the full Enell story from the latest episode of Under the Big Sky above.

Renelle Braaten loved competing in city league volleyball. But participation was accompanied by a significant problem. Sport bras designed for large chested women did not exist.

Renelle seemed an unlikely person to take on this challenge. She had been working as a barber in the town of Havre for more than 35 years. Despite this Renelle recruited her Mother to help sew and develop a design that solved the problem. So, began an extraordinary odyssey including the formation of a company, an eight-year quest to get to Oprah and awards from two Montana Governors.
