What is the custom bra making process?
We offer a safe, private and honest space where you can receive professional advice on how to make sure your bra is the right fit for you, and address any challenges or questions you may have.
If you're ready to create your own custom bra, we take a series of measurements during the fitting and work together to select your style, fabric, materials, and colours.
Fittings take up to an hour and are currently being held virtually only due to the pandemic. But fear not! We make the entire virtual fitting comfortable and easy for you. Take a look at our reviews and see for yourself.
All colours, fabrics, samples and styles are presented to you virtually so you can create your own bespoke bra all from the comfort of your own home. All you need is a measuring tape and a laptop, iPad, or a phone with a camera and an internet connection.
After everything is finalized, our team of designers and ateliers then begin work on your bespoke bra piece, which usually takes 3-5 weeks depending on your fitting and selections. Just like any custom piece, 1-3 fittings are usually required to finalize the styled bra to get it just right.
How much does a Rubies custom bra cost?
All custom made bras start at $375 CAD and can increase in price depending on the style and fabric you choose. This price includes the fitting consult, sourcing and purchasing of the fabric, all fittings and adjustments required within the warranty timeframe, and of course, your bespoke bra.
A lot of time and effort goes into fitting, designing and handcrafting your custom fitted bra from scratch, not to mention all production happens sustainably and ethically right here in Canada using the highest quality fabrics and premium workmanship. You come out with the "Cadillac" of designer bras, made to perfectly fit and flatter your unique body, lasting you years (yes, years), not months with proper care and regular washing. It’s an investment in something you wear every day, all day, to help you feel supported, comfortable and confident; not to mention, a good custom fitted bra is the key to improving posture and having less neck, shoulder and back pain. We’ve been in business for 6+ years and our clients are still wearing their first Rubies custom bra!
There are so many custom bra places? How is Rubies Bras different?
Most “Custom Bra” stores do custom fittings, which means they measure and fit you into a ready-to-wear bra and make alternations. This is very different then a bespoke custom made bra sewn from scratch, exactly to your measurements as compared to altering a garment already made to fit a standard size. Similar to a suit you get altered versus a custom made suit, the difference in Rubies Bras is a true bespoke custom bra.
What is your return policy on custom made bras?
We stand by the quality and craftsmanship of our products, offering a 90-day return policy and a 6-month warranty on any alterations needed. After 6 months, any alternations will be charged a nominal fee.
