Scandinavian Design Team

The Nordic lifestyle requires a high level of functionality and quality. Scandinavians live active lives, and the weather can be unpredictable and demanding.

At Pierre Robert, we believe that it is possible to look good and dress comfortably at the same time. Our clothing is carefully conceptualised and developed by our design team in Oslo, who adjust all garments to Nordic needs and Scandinavian style. We emphasize clean lines, a simple cut, a flattering fit and high-quality materials.

Our garments should feel soft against the skin and fit perfectly. To achieve a perfect fit, we test our products on many different people before they are approved. The design team also works closely with Pierre Robert’s purchasing department and our knowledgeable suppliers. The materials we use are hand-picked based on unique properties such as stretch and technical performance.

Pierre Robert’s Scandinavian design team consists of Head Designer, Jorunn Heggdal, Bente Helstrøm and associated freelancers. A purchaser and a product manager are also involved in each design project. In total, the design team is responsible for the each and every Pierre Robert garment, from the drawing board until it reaches you.

About sizes

About sizes

Within a single size, such as small, medium or large, there can be variations. Our sizes are made to fit everyone within each particular size, ranging from the smallish to the large.

Everyone is different and there is no standard body size or shape. At Pierre Robert, we want everyone to feel comfortable in our clothing. That is why we test our products on many different shapes within a particular size before lanching them to market.

To find the perfect fit, we do several rounds of tests and work closely with our purchasing department and knowledgable suppliers. Materials are carefully selected and hand-picked, based on unique characeristics such as stretch and technical performance. One size spans quite a range at Pierre Robert and takes into account those that are either a little on the small side or a little on the large side within their size. If you are unsure about which size is right for you, please use our size guide to find the perfect fit.

FIND THE RIGHT SIZE SPORTS BRA

Determine your correct sports bra size by the measuring around your ribs, directly under your bust. Cup size is also important. An L-size sports bra will sit tighter on someone with an 85 D-cup than someone with 85B. Due to this, the right size for you will depend on your need for suppport and your personal preference.

Example:

If your regular bra size is 85B, you can choose between an L or XL sports bra, depending on how tight you would like the bra to be, and how much support you need for intended activity. For high-intensity exercise like running and aerobics, good support is essential, and you should choose L. For low-intensity activities like yoga, slow walking and gardening, you may prefer the XL for better comfort.

Is your regular bra-size larger than an E-cup? You can still wear our Sport Bra.

We have satisfied customers with bra sizes up to H-cup (65H), who use our bra for support when exercising. Because of the elasticity, the top can fit sizes other than those suggested by the measurements in the guide.

NB! Even if you have a large cup-size, follow the measurement under the bust. If the sports bra is too wide around the ribs/undert the bust, it will ride up. The bigger your cup-size, the more important it is that your sports bra sits tightly over the bust.

Still not sure?

Send us an email! We would be delighted to help you find the right size. To do this we need to know your regular bra size, what type of exercise you plan on using the sports bra for and whether you would prefer firm support or a slightly looser fit.
