At Intimate Apparel we offer a range of bra fitting courses for personnel in the lingerie industry who need to know how to measure and fit bras correctly. Our courses help you or your personnel to fit bras perfectly so that your customers are always satisfied with their lingerie purchase. If you and your staff can measure a bra correctly and provide the customer with a perfectly fitting product, it will make all the difference to your sales. Customers will keep coming back time and time again, because they know they will always get a great service and the right bra with the right fit.

We offer a comprehensive range of bra fitting courses that provide you and your lingerie personnel with a high level of bra fitting knowledge. Our bra fitting courses are provided by our experienced bra fitting experts.

The range of courses we offer enable you and your staff to begin bra fitting immediately in a retail environment and this means that they can fit, measure and provide confident, knowledgeable advice to your customers and provide a superior customer experience that will help improve sales.

We offer a basic course for those with no previous experience that teaches how to fit different bras on different body types and then our more intensive bra fitting courses offer more in-depth and specialist bra fitting skills, where required. Bra fitting is a skill that takes training and knowledge to achieve the necessary results and satisfied customers.

We offer the following bra fitting courses that are suitable for most lingerie personnel.

Testimonial

“I found the foundation bra fitting course well thought out & well presented. It’s given me 100% more confidence in my fitting skills and customer approach.”

Melanie Walbrin

Foundation Bra Fitting Course

Our Foundation Bra Fitting course is run by bra fitting expert Alison Hawkins and is the only impartial bra fitting course that uses a tape measure. The course is an introduction to bra fitting and enables participants to achieve basic bra fitting knowledge and teaches them the necessary skills to measure and fit a bra in a lingerie retail environment. The course requires no previous bra fitting experience and enables those participating to fit various styles and types of bras for all body shapes. This is also an ideal bra fitting course for people who need a refresher course in bra fitting, who have perhaps been away from the profession or have lost confidence in their skills. The course is usually held in small groups enabling good interaction.

Advanced Level Bra Fitting Course

Our advanced level bra fitting course is also run by Alison Hawkins and this more intensive course is ideal for retail personnel working in lingerie departments or stores who require a more in depth knowledge of fitting specialist intimate apparel products including post surgery bras, maternity bras, swimwear and shapewear. Some experience is essential and we recommend this course for personnel who’ve already attended one of our foundation bra fitting courses and now want to acquire a broader skill set and greater knowledge of specialist bra fitting. Again, the course is usually held in small groups enabling good interaction.

One Day Bra Fitting Course

Our one day bra fitting course is run by Lindsay Brown. Lindsay is one of the few people worldwide to have a Master Degree in bra design and manufacture. This course aims to teach participants how to measure and fits bras by eye without using a tape measure. Lindsay adopts an entirely different approach to traditional bra fitting with a tape measure, and the aim of this bra fitting course is to create the ability in participants to assess anatomy and body shape with great skill, thus eliminating the need to use a tape measure, but still enabling your staff to fit a customer’s bra to perfection.
