Nette Rose is a gorgeous handmade intimates brand from South Africa. The brand was founded, designed, and produced by Megan Miller, using local fabric suppliers in Cape Town. In an Elle South Africa article she described how she named her brand “Nette Rose” (pronounced Nettie Rose) after her two “sensational and stylish” grandmothers, Nette, who bought her first pair of fabric scissors, and Rose, who sparked up the idea of Megan going to a fashion academy.
The brand has since reached Europe via Nic and Steff Fitzgerald, two Switzerland-based distributers who are also originally from South Africa. One day, they came across an article about Nette Rose, and in their words “immediately fell in love”. And I am not surprised! They are very happy to support “a young, responsible, South African brand!”
Nette Rose intimates are contributors to the slow fashion movement, handmade in South Africa with “fun, cheek, and a lot of laughs!” something that was a further inspiration to Nic and Steff when investing in this brand. In their own words, “it is important to us to help transform the image of eco-friendly fashion from ‘boring, frumpy, and unexciting’ to what it really is: beautiful, timeless, sexy and fun.”
I have always found that lingerie is more of a treat for myself than anything else, an act of self love and an expression of individuality. It is a way for me to feel empowered, beautiful, and confident.
As a busty petite woman with what seems to be the world’s tiniest back I have often struggled to find intimates that are a good fit. I find that the ‘Ember’ bralet (pictured above) has a very good and sturdy hold, and due to the front clasp it sit perfectly – this is definitely the beginning to a very long and beautiful friendship! Not only are these lovelies sexy as hell but they are also comfortable and hug all the right places. I am absolutely in love with this sassy duo and cannot get enough of the ‘Lottie’ knickers (pictured above), that have flirty soft straps which sit snug at the waist.
The starting price for their bralettes is CHF 59.00 (roughly £46) and CHF 39.00 (roughly £30) for their knickers. Their products come in sizes S, M, and L.
