Frequently Asked Questions

Sizing & Bras

How do I measure my bra size?

Everything you need to know about how to measure your bra size is on our Find My Size page. Use the guide when measuring, and input your measurements into the Bra Size Calculator to find your perfect size.

Should I wear a bra whilst measuring myself?

You should wear a bra without any significant padding or push-up as this will affect the accuracy of your measurements. Make sure to use a soft tailors measuring tape.

How often should I measure myself?

We recommend measuring yourself once every 6 months, as a lot can change in this space of time!

Do your bras have push-up or padding?

Our T-Shirt Bras have a moulded foam cup. (We will be restocking these!) None of our bras are push-up.

Do you have any bras without an underwire?

We currently have four bras without any underwire. The Cotton Wireless Bra, the Naked Wireless Bra, the Mesh Wireless Bra and the Naked Bandeau.

What bras carry your biggest bra sizes?

Our Naked Fuller-Bust Bra now goes up to a 34HH and a 36H.

Do you have any bras that are bigger than a 40 under band?

We currently don't have any bras that will reach above a 40 under band on their own. We do however, sell Bra Extenders, which extend your bra 1 back size per extender. They are sold in a pack of 2.



Are your panties cotton?

We have several cotton panties which include the BriefHigh Waist Brief and Thong multipacks (we will be restocking these!) However, all of our panties have a 100% cotton gusset. 

Can I return my panties for a refund/exchange?

Panties are fine to be returned within our 28 day return window, as long as they are unworn, and in their original packaging. This is for hygiene reasons. Any panties sent back to us that are seen to have been worn will be returned to you.



How do I know which skin tone would suit me best?

We have a super handy Skin Tone Guide which will help you choose the best color to go for - Berry, Cinnamon, Caramel or Café au Lait.

I think I’m in between two tones – which one should I go for?

If you’re in between tones, we would recommend choosing the darker shade.


Bra Care

How often should I wash my bra?

Ideally wash your bra every 2 – 3 wears.

Is it OK to put my bra in the washing machine?

We wouldn’t recommend it with every garment we sell, but if you do, we recommend using a lingerie bag and a gentle cycle on a low temperature. Further instructions can be seen here.

How do I know when to replace my bra?

If there are tell-tale signs such as underwire poking out, the band is no longer snug, or if there’s visible damage to the bra then you should think about replacing it. Some bras if kept with care and not worn often may last a life time. However, for bras in regular rotation, look out for the signs above and you may need to replace them annually. Read more here.



What denier are your tights?

Our Shaping Tights are 40 denier, and our Semi-Matt Tights are 20 Denier

Do you carry plus-size tights?

We absolutely do! Our 40 Denier Semi-Matt Shaping Tights are available up to an XXXL, and our 20 Denier Semi-Matt Tights are available up to an XL.

Can I return my tights for a refund/exchange?

Tights are fine to be returned within our 28 day return window, as long as they are unworn, and sealed in their original packaging. This is for hygiene reasons. Any tights sent back to us that are seen to have been opened or worn will be returned to you. Our tights packaging has a small cellophane window so you can see the color before you open them. You can also find our tights size chart here, to find your perfect size.
