Building the Perfect Bra
A bra is a bra, right? Wrong! Here is what to look for when you’re lingerie-shopping. We love to gush when our friends and customers confess that our Bras are the most comfortable they own. This means Marlies’ mission is complete! She wants you to be super comfortable, and feel sexy at the same time.
To achieve all of that in one bra we’ve worked long and hard over the years to assess what gravity does to our bodies and where we most need support.
When you’re buying your next bra, try and do the same. Look beyond the colour and the style, and focus on how it’s made. Here are the parts we suggest you focus on:
These greatly affect your shape and comfort. That’s why we created our very own wire a number of years back. Mass-produced brands use standard wires, made of cheaper materials. Be aware that those can break or poke through the fabric after a while. (Ouch!)
Go ahead, squeeze them! If they’re molded, do they have a nice bounce? Does the foam seem ‘sweaty’ to you? In our next post we’ll explain what makes our molded cups so special.
These are the side panels of the bra. Often overlooked, but very important in terms of support. Cheap materials will stretch out and ruin the whole fit of the bra. We use a special, very firm fabric for this.
Here, we want firmness and again, great quality. Check out the width, especially if your girls are on the big side; you don’t want them cutting in the flesh of your shoulders, do you?
By buying the perfect bra, you buy freedom. Freedom to move around, without worrying about nipple-slips or other wardrobe malfunctions. We think nipple-slips should only be fully intentional!

“Unlock Your Potential” book launch in New York
Marlies Dekkers, the cult Dutch lingerie artist, launched her new book ‘Unlock your potential’ on February 27th in the Dream Hotel Downtown, New York City… And what a night it was!
Crowned Queen of Scotland at only nine months of age, proud Mary Stuart (1542- 1587) was off to a flying start. A tall beauty with golden-red hair and bewitching hazel eyes, Mary was so charismatic, so brilliant with words that her cousin, Queen Elizabeth I, refused to meet her during their lifetimes for fear of being overshadowed.
Talent for Intrigue
Was Jane Boleyn, aka Viscountess Rochford, a villain or a victim? One thing is certain: no other woman in the 16th century was as closely associated with as many dramatic events…
