Shape

  • What is the difference between a soft bra and a padded bra?

    Both will give you a glorious décolleté, but do so in different manners. Padded bras give you extra support and correction. The foamed cups help you frame the shape of your décolleté: from a modest cleavage to a bedazzling sexy one. Unpadded cups, on the other hand, follow the natural shape of your breasts. Soft bras are therefore a perfect pick to add a dash of comfort and support to the natural charm of your breasts.Back to top
     

  • Do I need different sizes for different bra shapes?

    No. Usually you will need the same size for every bra shape, padded or unpadded. Back to top
     

  • Do I need different sizes for different bottom shapes?

    No. A medium thong has the same size measurement as a medium brief , tanga or shorts. We believe beautifying your bum should be easy. Back to top
     

Fit

  • How tight should the band size of my bra be?

    When you put on a bra, the band size should feel comfortably tight. Be sure that the band size isn’t too loose. You don’t want the band to crawl up, because that will take away all the support. But keep in mind that a bra band that’s too tight is very uncomfortable. So settle on a size that’s tight yet comfortable.
    The band size is the size measurement of the bra’s band around your torso. To obtain your band size, measure very snugly around your rib cage, just underneath your breasts. Back to top
     

  • How tight should my shoulder straps be?

    Bra straps are all about balance. First of all, straps are not the ones responsible for upholding your breasts. That is the bra band’s job. To adjust the straps bear in mind that their function is to keep the bra band (or back-panel) on your back horizontal and to keep the cups in place, so they can do their jobs properly. If your straps are too tight, the bra band crawls up on your back and your breasts will lose support. If your straps are too loose, the cups (and thus the desired shape) will collapse. So find a middle way between balance and comfort. Back to top
     

  • What’s happening when the cups are wrinkling or there is still some space left in them?

    This means you are confronted with ill-fitting cups. You either need to upsize your cup size, choose another bra shape for your breast type, or tighten your shoulder straps a bit. Back to top
     

  • What are clear signs that I am not wearing the right bra?

    Stand in front of the mirror. If your breasts are overflowing the cups or your breasts are not properly tucked into the cups, the band is crawling up your back, or the wires aren’t located neatly underneath your breasts, your bra is ill-fitting. Adjust if possible, otherwise choose another size. Back to top
     

  • Do I have the same bra size my entire life?

    No! And that’s okay. There are so many circumstances to think of that will affect the shape of a woman’s body during the years. And thus change your bra size or favourite shape. Think of hormonal changes, weight gane, weight loss, pregnancy etc. Therefore, we advise all women to measure their bra size yearly. Back to top
     

Size

  • I have uneven breasts, what bra size do I need?

    We strongly advise you to shop for the larger breast size. Just simply remember that your larger breast will never fit the cup size of your smaller breast. If necessary you can fill up the cup of the smaller breast with a little bit of foam filling. Also remember that small variations in breast size (or hand size or foot size for that matter) are very common in most women. Back to top
     

  • Why is it extremely important to wear the right bra size?

    A proper fitting bra works for you, instead of against you. The right bra size gives you the right kind of support and helps to prevent back and neck problems (which is of crucial importance for women with larger breasts!). Right fitting also injects you with a natural boost of confidence as it makes you appear slimmer and younger. We’d like to quote Oprah as she started the Bra Revolution: ‘Women of the world, you need to rise up and get a proper bra fitting!’ Back to top
     

  • How do I know if I am wearing the right bra size?

    Did your bra stay put during the day? No shifting of the cups, wires or backline? When you look into the mirror, do you like what you see? Does your bra actually make a difference when you put it on and does it feel comfortable? The answers to all these questions should be a loud and proud yes! Back to top

Lingerie Care

You can find the specific care instructions for your marlies|dekkers item on the garment tag attached to your bra or bottom, or in the care information of the item on our website. But, if you’re searching for a bit more information and explanation on how to take the best care of your lingerie, we’ve got you covered. 

Gentle washing

While hand washing is ideal, we've designed our bras for the ladies on the go. Just keep in mind that the gentler the cycle, the better… with little to no spin. Ban bleach, softener and detergent for wool, as the elastic in your band and straps simply can't stand up to the effects. For extra protection, always place your bra in a lingerie washing bag to avoid snagging.

Drying

Make sure you never tumble dry your lingerie. Even if your bras are protected inside a lingerie washing bag, the heat will break down any elastics and can cause dimpling in your padding. We don’t want you to have to throw away your perfect bra because of your dryer! We suggest that you shape and lay your bras flat or hang them to dry. Not by the straps, but either over a shower rod or clipped upside down from the band. This way your bra will still have that perfect fit it had before washing it, and no harm is done.

Hand-washed lasts longer

Some bras are not to be machine washed because of their delicate fabrics and design. Of course this will be mentioned in the garment tag and also on our website in the care information of the product page. Whenever a bra can’t be machine washed, it’s most favorable for your bra to be hand-washed. We know it can be quite a lot of work, but you will be pleased when your favorite bra lasts longer!

Hand-wash step-by-step

Of course we also have a step-by-step guide on how-to hand wash your bra:
1. Use a washing bucket, your bathtub or maybe the bathroom sink to hand wash your bra.
2. Fill it up with lukewarm water and a mild detergent. Leave out any bleach, softeners or wool detergents, because this might damage the elastics in your bra.
3. Add in your bras and gently push them down so that they become fully submerged and saturated with the detergent. Leave them to sit for 10 to 15 minutes.
4. After about 10 to 15 minutes give your bra’s a gentle pressing, which will help take out the dirt and oil in your bras.
5. Then drain the water and rinse each bra thoroughly with clean water.
6. If you’re confident you’ve rinsed the bra properly, fold the bra in a towel and gently press it to get rid of excess water.
7. After this you’re ready to hang your bra to dry!
