Our founder, Abby Pond, was a frustrated professional woman who couldn’t find a bra that fit. She spent hours traveling to specialty shops and retail chains, only to leave empty handed, frustrated, and ashamed.
She felt like something was wrong with her. The bras didn’t fit her – the bras that were supposed to make her feel sexy and appealing, poised and alluring. She felt abnormal because they didn’t work for her body.
By 2014, she’d had enough.
She learned to make her own bras, studying with the Fairy Bra Mother, Beverly Johnson, in Hamilton, Ontario. As her friends discovered this newfound skill, they began asking for bras too. The more she spoke to others, the more she realized that the fashion industry was fundamentally failing to support women in every way that counted.
