What Do We offer?
Nonbarelle is a small, unique Finnish lingerie brand with a collection of unwired bras, panties with a low and high waist, thongs and other accessories. We are offering sizes S, M and L at the moment.
We use lots of delicate laces and adorable printed jerseys. I design the construction of every item so that they are soft and comfortable against the skin.
Most of the bra cups are lined the way that the lining forms a pocket. All of these models have light removable padding. You can wear them without the padding, or with it for more support. Some of the bras have a padding sewn in place.
The collection also includes bras without padding, or completely unlined. They are the best choice for lounging at home, or in the bedroom of course! And if you don't need that much support, you can still wear these on a daily basis when it feels like it's too hot to wear padded bras.
Most of the panties are low waist hipsters with cheeky style back. There are also many thongs available, and if you prefer more coverage, choose the comfortable high waist style, which will also cover your bum.
Most of our products are made to order.
Why Made To Order?
As a small and fairly new brand our production is still very small, and we don't buy fabrics and other things at big batches. As it's difficult to estimate the sales of different sizes beforehand, I make every item as it has been ordered. This way there is still fabric for whatever the next ordered size will be. There are still a few items ready to be shipped. Processing time for made to order items varies from a couple of days to four weeks, depending on the orders in queue.
Nonbarelles workroom is located in Helsinki, where I make all of the items from start to finish. The designing process, pattern drafting, cutting and sewing all happen at the same place. You can buy our products here from the webshop. We also still have some of the items in our Etsy shop, but I probably won't be updating that so much anymore.
I am Maaria, the founder and designer of Nonbarelle lingerie. And as this is a one-woman business, I am also a pattern maker, seamstress, customer servant, handler of the orders, admin of the webshop and a coffee maker! I was raised in the countryside in Northern Ostrobothnia and studied fashion design at Savonia University of Applied Sciences from where I graduated in 2009.
I have been sewing as long as I can remember. I started with needle and thread, making a huge amount of clothes for my Barbie dolls. A few years later my mom taught me to use sewing machine and serger. During my studies in fashion design, I started dreaming of my own handmade business. After years of different jobs, I finally figured out what I want to make: sew lingerie! And now my little lingerie label Nonbarelle is finally here!
