History Behind The Bra Course


The Bra Fitting Course was established in 2006 in response to lingerie retailer demand for a reliable and commercial insight into correct Bra Fitting Training. Since launching in 2006, word spread within the industry and the Bra Fitting Training and Lingerie Retail Courses have been regularly attended ever since. See the Bra Fitting Course Reviews page for feedback and testimonials.
