Tried, True and Still New: The Timpa Alice Bra is 20 Years Old
By ELLEN LEWIS
Twenty years ago, Timpa Lingerie launched the Duet bra, a pretty crochet lace plunge demi bra designed specifically for small busted women. Today, the same style, renamed Alice, is still going strong. I personally made the acquaintance of this classic silhouette 15 years ago in NYC when it was brought to my attention as an already established best-seller for the Dutch brand. Born in Amsterdam, Timpa is now under the egis of a female owned French company based in NY. This bra anchors the entire Alice Collection proving that a key item can endure, particularly when it continues to satisfy its key customer. Continuity of fit, charismatic colors and charming comfort is its secret formula. Paired with the matching panty options: brief, thong and brazilian, this set is a sexy, sweet option for sized 32-36 ABCD and 38 ABC and S-L. Timpa continues its expansion of the Alice collection for Spring 24, adding a wireless bandeau bra engineered specifically for the petite bust and meant to peek out and a very minimal mini thong.
