On Wednesday September 28th Hurricane Ian touched down in Florida causing severe flooding and damage to our warehouse and throughout the state.

Our Florida team is all safe, but the St. James City warehouse remains inaccessible due to damage to Pine Island Road and Matlacha Bridge.

We are working diligently to get stock replaced and order fulfillment up and running from our Philadelphia location. Because of this, order fulfillment will take a little extra time - we appreciate your patience and understanding.

Q: Can I place an order from your Marketplace store?
A: No, for the time being we've had to suspend orders from our Etsy, eBay, and Amazon stores as well as our main website.

Q: Can I call you to place an order or to find out an order status?
A: At the moment we can only communicate via email. We'll have phone calls forwarded to our PA location very soon.

Q: When can I place my really important order?
A: We'll be making a limited range of our products available via the website soon.

Q: What about the order I already placed via your Marketplace store?
A: We've cancelled and refunded all Etsy, eBay, and Amazon orders that were placed after our last mail pickup on 9/27.

Q: What about the order I already placed via your website?
A: If we're unable to fulfill the order from our PA location we'll contact you with an option to cancel the order or backorder any currently unavailable products. We'll be reaching out to anyone with outstanding orders to see how you'd like to proceed.

Thank you so much for your patience and understanding.
Please check back soon - we'll be posting updates here and via our newsletter.


How to Measure Underwires

It’s really hard to know what bra size you wear, let alone what size underwire you need.
Every company that makes bras and bra sewing patterns has their own sizing, some overlap, but often they don’t.

When viewing an underwire product page on our site you’ll notice a button along the side labeled “+ Technical Specs” – Clicking this link will display the exact measurements of the underwires.

If you are unsure how to get the Length, Depth, and Width use this as your guide.

The Length is measured around the curve from tip to tip. The Width is straight across from tip to tip. The Depth is measured from the center point of the Width to the bottom of the curve.

***Also, in the Technical Specs you will find a printable PDF with a tracing of all of our underwires. Print it out at 100% (make sure it isn’t set to “Fit to Page”) and you can compare our underwires to one you want to replace or your pattern.

Here are the PDF’s of all of our sizes. Print them out at 100% :
