custom-made bra

Is it possible to have a bra custom-made? Are there any companies that do it? Does anyone have any experience with this?

I'm a hard-to-find size (32F), and all the stores that do seem to carry them seem to be very frilly, which means they look crappy under clothes (i.e. they aren't meant to be worn "under" clothes, but rather, they're meant to be seen!) I just want some basics that fit well and work well. I'm hesitant to order online, because sizing is so finicky, as is comfort, and paying return shipping multiple times just gets expensive.

I don't mind paying a good amount of money for a bra, but I want to know that it's going to fit well.

Please don't send links of "go to website xyz; their bras fit really well." Like I said, I don't want to order online. I want to know it fits before I buy.

Thank you!

Sounds like you need to go to a tailor, then.

Frederick's of Hollywood has 34 F

Frederick's of Hollywood has 34 F. Maybe you could order some, and the if they don't fit return them at the store (some stores do allow that but you should check in advance.)

Best of Luck!

There are a few places that make bras, but they cost about £400. Yes, that's pounds. So if you're loaded then you're fine.
My 32E's and I sympathise deeply.

Have you considered buying one at a plus sized store to fit the cup part and then getting the back tailored to your body. It would probably be cheaper than getting the whole bra custom made.
