Our Rewards Program
Your perfect fit is our priority, which is why your bra may require alterations by a qualified professional seamstress, arranged for by us, before you take it home.
Enjoy the benefits of our VIP Customer Rewards Program with automatic enrolment.
Orthopaedic bra alterations (available for in person purchases only), if needed on your first bra purchase of the calendar year, are added to your bra price at cost.
When you purchase two (2) or more bras in person within the same calendar year, alterations are free for your second and subsequent bras for that year. Bras do not have to be bought at the same time.
Our bras are Health Canada licensed orthopaedic, and most third-party health insurance plans cover a portion of your orthopaedic or post-surgical bra. Please note that alterations are not usually covered, so it's advisable to check your plan for your specific coverage details.

Why an orthopaedic bra?
1. Optimal Support: Orthopaedic bras are specially designed to provide superior support, particularly for those with larger busts or specific medical needs. The construction and materials used in these bras ensure that the breasts are properly supported and lifted, reducing strain on the back, shoulders, and neck. At Ottawa Bra Clinic, our bras have a Health Canada medical device license. Check your third-party insurance plan to see if some or all of the cost is covered.
2. Comfort: Comfort is paramount when it comes to undergarments, and orthopaedic bras excel in this aspect. They often feature soft, breathable fabrics and wider straps that distribute weight evenly, minimizing discomfort and irritation. Our larger size bras have wider straps and four hooks in the back instead of three.
3. Post-Surgery Recovery: For individuals recovering from breast surgery, such as mastectomy or breast augmentation, orthopaedic bras are invaluable. They offer gentle compression, support, and coverage, promoting healing and comfort during the recovery process.
4. Relief from Pain: Many people experience pain and discomfort associated with wearing ill-fitting or unsupportive bras. Orthopaedic bras address these issues by providing proper alignment and support, which can alleviate back, shoulder, and neck pain.
5. Improved Posture: A well-fitted orthopaedic bra can help improve posture by encouraging proper spinal alignment and distributing weight evenly across the torso. This can lead to a more comfortable and confident posture throughout the day.
6. Customization Options: Orthopaedic bras often come in a wide range of sizes and styles to accommodate various body types and preferences. This ensures that individuals can find the perfect fit and style to suit their needs and preferences.
7. Medical Benefits: In addition to providing comfort and support, orthopaedic bras may offer medical benefits such as improved circulation, reduced lymphedema, and minimized risk of skin irritation or injury.
Overall, investing in an orthopaedic bra can significantly enhance comfort, support, and overall well-being, making it a worthwhile investment for anyone seeking optimal breast health and comfort.
MASKING DURING FITTINGS:
In consideration and respect for our clients with compromised immune systems we are still masking for safety...
About in-person fittings:
I will be wearing a mask and face shield, and I will provide a disposable mask for the client (you are welcome to wear your own mask).
Any clothes that are tried on and not purchased will be isolated for 24 hours and steam cleaned before being returned to the main inventory.
The tape measure will be sanitized after each client.
I practice proper hand washing/use sanitizer.
I have been fully vaccinated (plus boosters)
Fittings at The Ottawa Bra Clinic have free parking. Fitting sessions normally range from 15 minutes up to 45 minutes to ensure the perfect style and fit. Fitting sessions, by certified bra fitter/owner Michele Bourque, by Zoom, Skype and in-person at the clinic, are free whether you buy something or not.
NOTE: If you are not feeling 100% please cancel, even if right before the appointment, and I will do the same.
