Duet by Timpa
Posted on September 11 2009
At the insistence of many of my A-cup customers, I've brought in the popular Duet Lace Demi Bra by Timpa, an Amsterdam-based brand that has been making the style since the 70s. Upon opening the package, I immediately sold four bras to three girls before I'd even had a chance to add them to my database, so there must be something special about it! The cut is incredibly low, which works well under scoop-neck tees, and the soft lace looks very pretty against the skin. (It has a Princesse Tam Tam Idylle sort of appeal.) You certainly can't beat the price - at just $30, it's a great value, and the matching shorty is just adorable!
I also decided to give their Cotton range a whirl, since Eberjey doesn't make A cups in their Pima Goddess T-Shirt Bra. The Cotton Underwire Demi Bra is a great everyday basic for petite ladies, and the Crossover Soft Cup, much like the Only Hearts Second Skins version, makes an excellent workout bra or nursing bra for girls who don't need a lot of support. I'm blown away by how soft their cotton is, so I think the String Thong, Bikini and Shorty will appeal to just about everyone.
