And I am really impressed!

I was leafing through a magazine at the bookstore my mother works in, maybe a Marie-Claire or Elle US? Saw a cute bodysuit and decided to check it out online.

First of all, their range of bra sizes looks HUGE: 28DD TO 46G.

Then, the Bra Fitting Center has you measure your torso UNDER your breasts and then over the fullest part to figure out your cup and band size. This seems pretty good and logical to me too!

But I have to say, bra fitting section just blew my mind!

And, as if that were not enough, they have international shipping AND free shipping to the US for orders over $70.

But the clincher for me, the thing that makes me consider them seriously for a future purchase (maybe during my next trip to the US so I can return the article) is that they actually have TWO CORSETS FOR PETITES listed. They point it out and everything on the page.

People, that is so RARE!!!!

Obviously, I do not work for them and I have yet to buy from them but I am totally in love!

Has anyone used them before and can offer feedback?

I recently did the online questionnaire and wasn't impressed. I wasn't given any size to wear; just suggestions on what I should purchase. All that time and effort for a "See you later" type of response.

The site is packed with information and much of it is useful. But there are some varying opinions so take it with a grain on salt.
If you order let us know how it turns out. If you are using the information in construction you might our Bra Making Thread helpful. Its in the Beginners Forum and Herroom was one of the sites we addressed from a construction aspect. I cant recall the particulars but I think the sizing or shaping just didn't work for some.

I've bought from the site and used the bra fitter, and I now have the best fitting bras I've had in a long, long time, thanks to the analysis of my type of breasts.

Nordstrom's was no help at all, btw.

Thanks so much for posting about this web site.
I have never seen such an extensive list of bra-problem sizing solutions before.
Have always taken the two standard measurements for my only option.
Will definitely be ordering from them today.

I've been ordering from them in spurts since last September. I love their extensive size range and brand availability, and for the most part their customer service is good. I did an online chat to confirm that I could return a bunch of things that were running up against their 30-day return policy, which was convenient. However, the last two times I've returned product, I've had to follow up with them TWICE on the phone before I've gotten my refund. Just an FYI.
