Sizing & Fit

1. Using a measuring tape, exhale and measure around your ribcage, just beneath your bust. Make sure the tape is pulled snug, leveled and straight around your back.

2. Using a measuring tape, measure around the fullest part of your bust. Again, make sure the tape is leveled, not too tight, and straight around your back.

3. With your new measurements, use our handy chart to find your BaseLayer bra size.

We currently offer 2 different pad styles that can be added to your favourite BaseLayer bra. Both pads add to the versatility of our bras and can help you achieve multiple looks. Our Comfort Pad offers equal thickness all around for full coverage and support. Our Shape Pad adds thickness focused on the outer sides of the cups to enhance cleavage.


All of our pieces can be machine washed in cold water and hung to dry or put in the dryer on tumble dry low. In addition, using a mesh garment bag will also help to avoid rubbing with other fabrics and clothing (i.e. denim and zippers) to extend the life of your bra or shorts.

Our bras and shorts are 75% Nylon and 25% Elastane.

BaseLayer is designed in Canada and manufactured in China.

At BaseLayer we're all about championing positive change. This is why we chose to manufacture in China despite the “made in china” stigma. We believe that by making conscious and mindful decisions through all aspects of our brand, we can change this.

We selectively source from Chinese factories that prioritize the process, quality and its workforce. With their advanced manufacturing processes, our factories are able to implement sustainable practices while maintaining quality more efficiently.
