STEP 1

Book a Fitting

Getting a custom bra made starts with a booking virtual fitting online, which involves a 60-minute private video call where we discuss your needs and walk you through the measurements required. All you need is a measuring tape and a good internet connection. Don't have a measuring tape? We can send you one, just ask! If you'd rather take measurements yourself without our live assistance, head over to our shop page and get started, or send us a private message and we can go from there. Please visit our FAQ page for pricing details.

STEP 2

Get Measured and Fitted

Your virtual fitting begins with gathering intel about your needs. We then show you how to take a series of measurements in order for us to make sure your custom bra will fit just right. These measurements may include high bust, full bust, rib cage, bottom cup depth (nipple to wireline), cross cup length, strap length and shoulder width. A measuring tape is required along with a laptop, iPad, or phone that has a camera and a good internet connection. If you feel uncomfortable with any of these measurements, we will work around your comfort level, not to worry.

STEP 3

Select your Bra Style, Fabric and Colour

Based on your measurements and your needs, we will show you some bra styles, fabrics and colours we think would work best for you, and together, we will build out what your custom bra will look and feel like. Styles vary from full to medium to light coverage. Fabrics include solid, lace, print, and organic cotton to name a few, and colours come in an endless assortment of options that you'll get to see!

STEP 4

Finalize your Bra and Process Payment

After measurements have been taken, we review your bra design in detail to make sure we've covered everything and you're comfortable, happy and excited just like we are to get started! Payment is made at this time to start the order. All forms of payment are accepted, including cash, cheque, debit, credit, EFT, and Apple Pay. Instalment plans also accepted upon request.

STEP 5

Bra Creation and Delivery

Once payment has been processed, our team of designers and ateliers then begin work on your bespoke bra piece. The entire process takes anywhere from 4-9 weeks depending on your measurements, the style and fabric you've chosen, where you live and how many additional fittings and adjustments are needed. Delivery details will be provided in your confirmation email. Rush orders can be accommodated for a flat fee.

STEP 6

Post Delivery

Just like any custom piece, 1-3 fittings are usually required to finalize the bra to get it just right. Once you receive your bra, take it for a spin, and let us know if any adjustments are needed by booking a second fitting or sending us an email. If any adjustments are required, send the bra to back us, we’ll make the required alterations, and send the bra back to you.

We stand by the quality and craftsmanship of our bras, offering a 90-day return policy and a 6-month warranty on any alterations needed. After 6 months, any alterations will be charged a nominal fee.
