Meet Brarista

Finding the perfect bra can be a real chore. But it really shouldn't be!

 

This is where Brarista comes in. We are team of big dreamers, bra-wearers and bra-supporters on a mission to make every person feel empowered, confident and ready to take on the world.

At Brarista, no longer will the search for a perfect bra be daunting, time-consuming and confusing. With our wonderful CEO and professional Bra-fitter, Bella Trang Ngo and our incredible computer vision scientist Prashant Aparajeya, bra fitting has never been easier. In the comfort of your own home, our AI technology and Bella's expertise promises you the scientifically accurate fit.

 

Completely digital. Fuss-free. No Tape-measure required.

Why do we care?

 

As much as we love the lingerie industry, we know a lot still needs to change. Simply put, the lingerie industry is not doing enough to be inclusive to all bra-wearers. It largely caters to cis-gender women within a very limited range.

With such an archaic attitude, the mainstream industry ceases to fully acknowledge the demands of communities including the LGBTQIA+, plus size, cancer survivors and the disabled community. 

 

That's why we focus on bra-wearers. This not only includes womxn but also men, non-binary and transgender people. We know that one size definitely doesn't fit all and no matter what trends dictate, all shapes, curves and sizes will always be beautiful and worthy. We want to change for the better and won't stop until every person gets the perfect bra they need and deserve.
