In 1939, the Canadian Lady Corset Company best know as WonderBra was founded. What started out as a small sewing shop in the heart of Montreal, has grown into one of Canada’s most iconic brassiere brands.
One thing that certainly hasn’t changed throughout the years is WonderBra’s mission to provide women with well-fitting, good quality bras.
Our WonderBra Experience
I remember my very first training bras. I was 10 years old and as flat as a 2X4 yet, I absolutely needed those bras. My mom was incredible, she made an entire day of the event. We tried on several styles of bras until we found the perfect ones and then she took me out to lunch.
This eventually became a yearly tradition of ours until I was old enough to buy my own brassieres.
Last week, I had the amazing opportunity to pay it forward. With the help of WonderBra, I was able to recreate our tradition by taking my mom out shopping for bras. We made our way to WonderBra’s #1 retail outlet location where Mom was to obtain a personal bra fitting.
Walking up to the undergarment section of the store, you can really tell who rules the market. Wonderbra dominates at least 3/4 of the department.
Whether you like embroidery, prints or lace, underwires or wire-free, natural lift, high support or even seamless cups, you’re sure to find a WonderBra that has it and there’s bound to be one in your size. We were able to find WonderBras ranging from a 34A all the way up to a 46DDD.

Are You Wearing the Correct Bra Size?
Did you know that three out of four women wear the wrong size or do not properly adjust their bras?
Here are a few telltale signs: wrinkling in the cups, underwire poking the sides of your breasts, a band that rides up, cup spillage, slipping straps, or a bra that hikes up when you lift your arms.
Look your best and stay comfortable by choosing a bra that is fitted and adjusted to your body. Bra sizes vary as much as dress or pant sizes. Choosing the wrong size can impact your comfort, health and appearance. Since your body changes over time, WonderBra suggests that you get a bra fitting at least once a year.
Remember: Bra sizes are not standardized across brands, so the size you wear in another brand may not match up to your WonderBra size.

Turned out that out of all the bras Mom tried on, her favorite one ended up being the WonderBra Side & Back Smoothing Underwire Bra. I don’t want to brag, however, it must be made known that I was the one who selected it for her and she had absolutely no interest in it when she first saw it.
We had such a blast! We were laughing and reminiscing in the fitting rooms about the last time we had done this and how much our bodies had changed since then. Mom yelling to me from 3 cabins over: “The girls aren’t perky like they used to be” and the lady in the cabin next door bursting into laughter… One thing’s for sure, we sure are thankful to WonderBra for supporting “our girls” with such wonderful brassieres.
