5 Steps to the perfect fit

We were founded with the mission to find you lingerie that fits perfectly and feel comfortable, with no straps cutting into you, no gaping and no pinching. It should make you look and feel comfortable, confident and beautiful. We've done all we can so that it will fit you no matter your body type or style. Many women have trouble finding the perfect bra, and although we can give you some useful tips, you should still try on lingerie to be sure it fits correctly.

  1. Check the central part of the bra. Ideally, this should sit flat on your chest, directly on the skin, without digging in or feeling too loose.
  2. How does the wire sit? Follow the wire with your finger: it should be sitting closely, but comfortably around your bust to give you the best fit. If it is sitting directly on your breast tissue or stands away from your bust, the cup is too small and you should try one or two cup sizes up. Similarly, if the wire is loose, try moving down a cup size.
  3. Next, check the cups' + 'If you notice the cups digging into the breast or any wrinkling around the cup, the size is likely to be incorrect. Your breasts should be fully encased creating a smooth, clean silhouette.'

Assessing the fit of the cups is best done with a non-padded bra.

  1. The band is the most important part in providing the necessary support

Fasten your bra on the middle hook. If the back rides up and isn't sitting horizontally, the band size is likely too loose and you should try going down a size bracket. Ideally, you should be able to comfortably fit two fingers under the fastening of the band at the back. If more than two fingers fit, the band is too loose. Similarly, if fitting two fingers is difficult, the band is too tight. Note that if you go down in the back, you will need to go up in the cup to compensate. For example if a 34C cup is loose, try a 32D cup.

  1. Finally, adjust the straps. These should sit firmly on the shoulder without digging in or leaving marks and indentations. Straps help to balance the weight of your breasts with the main support coming from the band.

We believe Lingerie and Swimwear aftercare is of the utmost importance. Special care is needed when washing your fine lingerie and swimwear. If you follow the care instructions below, it will help keep your lingerie beautiful for longer. Always follow the care instructions given on the label of your lingerie.

Ideally, you should wash your lingerie after having worn it for one day. We strongly advise you to wash your lingerie by hand. Delicate laces and embroideries will last much longer if washed gently by hand. Fill a tub with warmish water (max 30°C) and detergent, and repeatedly immerse the lingerie. Make sure that the lingerie keeps moving. Don't wring it or rub it. Rinse with clear warmish water (max 30°C) until all the detergent is gone. Never put lingerie in the tumble dryer, but hang it out to dry. Lingerie can dry flat on a towel or be hung on a drying rack. Always hang the bra by the central front panel so it can dry evenly. Never put lingerie on a heat source. Only put lingerie away if it is completely dry. Lingerie should not be ironed.

Always follow the care instructions given on the label of your swimwear. Avoid wearing new swimwear in the sauna or Jacuzzi as this can cause serious degradation to the garment. We would suggest that an older garment is used as an alternative. Avoid contact with chlorine and sunscreen. Rinse swimwear immediately after every use in clean, cold water. Wash swimwear in cold water with detergent. Use a mild liquid detergent for delicate wash. Never let it soak overnight. Never wring swimwear. Never put swimwear in the tumble dryer, but hang it out to dry. Swimwear can dry flat on a towel or be hung on a drying rack. Only put swimwear away if it is completely dry.

Please note, we are unable to accept as faulty returned lingerie or swimwear where damage has been caused by not following the washing instructions on the label.

Yes. To help ensure that your shopping experience is safe, simple and secure, this website uses the industry standard Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology. This encrypts and protects the critically sensitive details you send us over the internet including your name, address and credit card details. This encryption ensures that nobody can read the information being sent between your pc and our website. SSL technology not only encrypts information, it also assures your browser that your data is being sent to the correct and secure computer server and it also checks the data being transferred to ensure that it has not been altered in any way. When you enter an SSL enabled area of the site you will see a padlock at the bottom of your browser. This means that the information you enter here is protected.

After you have successfully closed your checkout phase, you will receive an order confirmation email. However, this is not confirmation that we have successfully processed your payment. For credit and debit card payment methods, it may happen that we do not obtain payment authorisation from your bank. Usually, the denial of a payment authorisation occurs within 1 working day from the time you placed an order. If payment authorisation is denied, we will cancel your order and inform you via an automated mail.

There are a number of reasons why this may have occurred so you should carefully check the details you have entered and try again. Remember, the Invoice address you enter must match the address that your bank or credit card issuer has on record for you, otherwise your transaction may be declined by our Payment Service Provider even if your bank has authorised payment. We do not take payment from you until the goods are dispatched, however the funds will be reserved in your account at point of order so you may still see this on your bank statement even if we have not received payment. If the payment is rejected it will take approximately 4 working days for this authorisation code to drop off and release the funds again. If you have checked and entered your details again, please contact either your card issuer or our customer services team for help. Do not enter your details multiple times as this may prevent your funds from being released for other transactions.
