UNDERSTATEMENT

In 2017 Swedish Marie Stolt and Maria Lager founded a lingerie brand that prepares items that feel as equally good and lovely as they look.

Marie and Maria looked at the best materials and the best ways to manufacture Understatement’s lingerie. Their goal was to make sure that the products aren’t pressing, itching, or tightening no one. Understatement’s bras and panties are designed to be as comfortable as possible and they are made to make you feel confident.
