What is better than one favourite Bra?…Two of them….
It may not be the end of the world, but when your favourite perfume, eye shadow or sex toy is discontinued, it can sure feel that way!
Wolford’s indestructible stay-ups, Moroccan Oil’s miraculous hair mask; what would I do without my favourites? And so I buy them by the dozen. Yes, when my annual box of Wolford hoisery arrives, I feel a bit like my own sugar daddy. But you know what? I’m worth it.
I even find myself desperately collecting my own lingerie. For a few years now, my favourite bra has been the tough, sexy Gloria with the macho suspender straps. I wear it about 4 times a week and luckily I own at least 7 versions of it; from the classic pinstripe to the latest sweet summer tweed. For every mood, a Gloria.
The secret of great style is knowing what works for you. To not blindly follow every trend, but stay loyal to yourself. I get so excited when women tell me they own the Dame de Paris in 10 different colours, or when Sarah Jessica Parker is spotted in yet another Triangle bra!
You know what you like, ladies! And I support that. So I decided to celebrate with a special promotion:
2nd Bra 50% off – Buy your favourite bra in a basic colour, and receive a 50% discount on a seasonal colour variation! Available until the 31st of May.

As liberal and open-minded as Marlies Dekkers is now, during her childhood she was equally conservative. « Every night, I would be on my knees, praying my Hail Marys. » Still, that period is precious to her; it has shaped her into the power woman she is now. This year, Marlies celebrates being in business for 25 years, the perfect opportunity to look back at her milestones.
Governed by NO ONE
Flame-haired, brave-hearted and always dressed to dazzle, Elizabeth the First, also known as England’s ‘Virgin Queen’, is one of the most unforgettable women in history. Her glorious reign is known as The Golden Age ~ a period that saw the birth of Shakespeare, the defeat of the Spanish Armada and the emergence of England as a world power. It lasted almost 45 years; Elizabeth’s legacy as a feminist icon however, has already spanned nearly 5 centuries. “My sex cannot diminish my prestige.”
Only 11 days after he beheaded his second wife (the flamboyant Anne Boleyn), King Henry VIII married a pale, fair-haired maiden called Jane Seymour. Who exactly was this girl, and what had made the king so besotted with her? To this day, historians don’t quite know what to make of her.
