YES! If you want to learn how to sew your own bras, we can help!
We can either take a look at what you've already created and help with any challenges you're having, or start from scratch and create a custom pattern for you.
This is paid session and can be purchased here. Once we receive your order, we will contact you within 2 business days to schedule a fitting.
All custom made bras start at $450 CAD and can increase in price depending on the style and fabric you choose.
This price includes your initial consult, sourcing and purchasing of the fabric, all subsequent fittings and adjustments, and of course, your bespoke bra.
We do offer bundle discounts between 10-20% on subsequent bras of the same style.
All Rubies Bras come with a LIFETIME WARRANTY, which means we'll make any repairs needed due to wear and tear for the lifetime of the bra. And any aesthetic adjustments can also be taken care for a nominal fee.
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 7+ years and our clients are still wearing their first Rubies custom bra!
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 than 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.
All forms of payment are accepted, including cash, cheque, debit, credit, EFT, and Apple Pay. Instalment plans also accepted.
Yes, we ship all over the world. Shipping costs will be applied at check out.
The entire process takes anywhere from 4-12 weeks depending on your measurements, the style and fabric you've chosen, where you live and how many additional fittings and adjustments are needed.
Just like any custom piece, 1-3 fittings are usually required to finalize the bra to get it just right.

- bamboo rayon
- high grade polyester
- lycra spandex
If there is a certain fabric that we do not carry and is requested, we will try our best to source for you.
Wash & Care Instructions The key to making your bra last years (yes, years!) is to wash properly and regularly. Handwashing it always best, but machine washing will work if done with care.
Washing Tips 1. Wash every 2-3 wears
2. Use your handy lingerie bag
3. Fasten the hook and eye together
4. Wash in gentle cycle using gentle cleanser (try Soak)
5. No commercial fabric softener except vinegar (which I use for everything by the way!). No dryer. Lay flat to dry.
