What inspired you to create this brand?

BRABAR was founded to educate teen girls about bra fit and the importance of wearing the right size bra, which is essential for comfort and confidence. The brand was inspired by the need to create a supportive, comfortable, and size-inclusive option for young women, emphasizing self-love and body positivity.

Teens and young women love BRABAR wireless bras, and these wire-free bras are available in Band Sizes 28-38 and AA-DDD/F cup sizes. At BRABAR, a bralette and sports bra had a baby, creating the dreamiest, comfiest, and most supportive wireless bras. Their size-friendly fits are perfect for micro and macro boobies and fit girls, teens, and young women across cup sizes AA – DDD/F and band sizes 28-38. No wires, only comfort.

Wireless bras are designed for teens and are loved by petite and full-busted girls. Boobs have many shapes and sizes, and comfort is the foundation of confidence. We make comfortable wire-free bras for girls of all cup sizes. The inception of BRABAR was driven by a desire to address a gap in the junior bra market, focusing on creating a brand that promotes comfort, self-love, and confidence among young women. Inspired by the personal challenges of bra shopping, the founder sought to develop a solution to alleviate the frustration many girls and their mothers face.

BRABAR PHILOSOPHY A bra should fit like a strapless bra, hugging your ribcage, not hanging from your shoulders. The EZ-fit method teaches girls to find the correct band measurement, which is essential to a proper fit.

Steps for the THE E-Z FIT METHOD.

  1. MEASURE RIBCAGE Measure around directly under the bust & around the rib cage. YOUR RIB CAGE MEASUREMENT = BAND SIZE Round to the nearest even whole number to determine your band size.
  2. MEASURE OVERBUST Measure around directly over the total bust & around the back.
  3. BUST-BAND=CUP, so YOUR OVERBUST MEASUREMENT minus YOUR BAND SIZE equals CUP SIZE in inches. i.e 32 underbust and 36 overbust. 32 Band and 36-32 + 4 inches or D cup, size 32D.
