Fitting Bands Workshop
Solve your Fit Challenge - Flared ribs fitting strategies

Class Overview

Flared ribs don’t taper below the bust, they either stay straight or else increase in size, which makes several things a bit more tricky than usual when getting your fit for your me-made bra. As a custom bra maker, Ruhee faces women with these challenges regularly, and has strategies to help lead you to success!

Ruhee Rubies Bras

Hi everyone, I’m Ruhee! Founder of Rubies Bras and The Saharaa Wirefree Bra Pattern. Born and raised in Edmonton, Canada, I graduated with a Marketing Degree from the University of Alberta, and have been a Marketing Professional for about 18 years. So besides making bras, I also dabble in a little marketing consulting on the side for small business owners.

Ages ago, I decided I hated my bra so much that I joined a class to make one. I remember thinking I was crazy, but when you’re desperate and determined (and frustrated with retail options), strange things happen. It took me six months of private lessons to make a proper bra and I was so excited, I told (and showed) all my friends, and decided to make bras on the side for my friends and family.

Fast forward eight years later (with proper bramaking and designing designations), I run Rubies Custom Bras (a friend named it after combining Ruhee + boobies over a night involving too many drinks) in my private studio, along with my marketing coaching practice. I also released a new wirefree bra pattern last year called The Sahaara, designed for those looking for a relaxed and minimal look without compromising comfort and support.

I call Toronto and Edmonton home as I bounce back and forth between the two cities. I love yoga, photography, and am a plantbased foodie. I come with one husband and one shihtsu named Emma.  Looking forward to meeting you!
