"Did you know that it takes about 10 minutes for the average marlies|dekkers customer to decide on a lingerie set, but well over an hour to choose a bathing suit or bikini? Don’t worry, it’s completely normal to need more time when you buy something to wear at the beach. Where else would you undress in front of that many people? The beach has its own set of rules. So when I started designing swimwear, I felt I needed to crack that code.
Personally, I want to look good at the beach, but not too sexy. More than anything, I want to feel confident. A sensual strap or a naughty cut-out - so empowering under a suit skirt - is not going to give me that feeling at the beach. So when it comes to swimwear, I want you right there smack in the middle of your comfort zone! Let me explain how I do that, using my Signature Cache Coeur collection as an example."
