Welcome, Friends!  This section was created by the Grail staff as a home for all the external resources we think might help you, a bra wearer and/or person inhabiting a body. 😛 Interested in digging deeper in pursuit of bra knowledge? Want to connect with other body-inclusive local businesses? We’re happy to share what we’ve found, and if you have an addition you’d like to see here, message and let us know about it!

Web Resources ~ Bras and Bra Fittings:

    • https://www.reddit.com/r/ABraThatFits/
    • The r/ABraThatFits Community on Reddit is truly the Holy Grail of bra knowledge online and a major inspiration for our existence. ABTF is hands-down the place to go if you’re trying to better understand the body side of the bra fit equation. Already an ABTF afficianado? That’s awesome! The Grail fitting team can provide info on the garment side of the equation to help you find your best match(es).
    • https://www.bratabase.com/
      Bratabase collects crowdsourced data on the sizing and fit characteristics of various bra styles. Wondering if a bra runs big or small, wide or narrow, tight or loose in the band? Bratabase may have an answer for you, and you can contribute by adding measurements from your own bras.
    • https://sophisticatednotion.com/
      One of Grail owner Carmen’s original mentors was Erica Windle, the former owner of bra boutique A Sophisticaed Pair in Greensboro, NC. Although Erica is not currently in the bra business, her blog- A Sophisticated Notion– is full of fantastic bra info, reviews, and personal content. Definitely worth a read.
