FabFit Academy Review from Sweet Nothings

I was thrilled when the author of Sweet Nothings signed up for the Charter Class of the FabFit Academy, my online bra fit training and certification course.   She just reviewed the course and…Wow!   What an amazing thing to read, especially since creating the class was such a huge amount of work, and presenting it online means it’s hard to know how the material is being received.   Read on…

The Fab Fit Academy with Ali  Cudby
by Sweets

Busted

If Ali Cudby’s name sounds familiar, it’s because I’ve fangirled her a few times before.  Namely here, when I reviewed her book (Busted! The FabFoundations Guide to Bras that Fit, Flatter and Feel Fantastic)  shortly after starting Sweet Nothings and basically loved the hell out of it, and then here, when I met her at Curve and she had on awesome stockings and we talked about Bravissimo.  I was absolutely thrilled when she announced the launch of The Fab Fit Academy, and I didn’t have to think too hard before signing up as a charter member.  After writing Sweet Nothings for a year, I know now more than ever that I want to work in the lingerie industry in some capacity for the foreseeable future.   I love writing my blog, and I love the things I’ve learned and the people I’ve met, but eventually I’m going to want to do more, and part of the more will involve bra fitting.

FabFit Academy

I’ve read A LOT about bra fitting in the last six years, and Ali’s approach is the one rings truest.   As lovely as it would be, there simply is no single method, no one system, no perfect “algorithm” (who can’t let it go?   Is it me?) that will spit out the perfect bra size for each and every woman.   It would be swell if buying a bra was as easy as buying a t-shirt, but it’s not that simple, because bodies aren’t that simple.   If my identical twin sister and I, who share something like 99.89 percent of our genetic makeup, wear different sizes and generally prefer different kinds of bras, the likelihood that we’re all supposed to wear 34C padded t-shirt bras is pretty low.   Size guides, calculators, and fitting charts will only ever be more-or-less helpful guides; it’s usually impossible to know exactly how a bra will fit and feel until you try it on.   This is why it’s so important to focus on FIT, not on SIZE.   We may all in fact wear a few different sizes depending on different brands and styles, and unless we know good bra fit criteria, it can be hard to know where to start.
