Va Bien lingerie is a heritage lingerie company started by Marianne and Richard Gimble, whose mission was to supply women worldwide with undergarments that make them look and feel beautiful in their clothes. Marianne came from a French design background, and had a detailed knowledge of the female body from medical training. Her husband Richard had over 20 years of experience with intimate lingerie from the family business, Image O' Youth. Marianne and Richard understood that the foundation garment was necessary to transform a woman's dressing issues, with the right undergarment instantly supplying a pleasing silhouette.
Marianne and Richard Gimble based their business on the belief that women deserve shapewear and lingerie that is both comfortable and attractive. Shapewear at that time was uncomfortable, thick and bulky, often showing through clothing. Coarse fabrics were all too common in lingerie, so Marianne and Richard wanted to introduce nicer, sleeker fabrics as well as superior construction. They designed a collection that was not only problem-oriented, but also smooth and silky, with seams and panels hidden inside the garments. Since its launch in 1979, Va Bien has continued to be a solution-driven brand that also wants to put women in pretty, feminine lingerie.
Va Bien bras include styles like convertible, plunge, strapless, minimizers and more - with many styles available in plus size. The Ultra-Lift collection features patented bra cups with "Magic Fingers," three lightweight stays sandwiched between thin foam layers. Seamless Solutions bras minimize the bust while remining invisible under your clothes. Vintage Bras give you that pin-up beauty allure and a classic comfort style. The Va Bien Smooth Couture shapewear collection combines sleek lingerie styles with firm control power, shaping the body rather than flattening using hidden seams.
The Va Bien line still includes long body briefers in various styles, including low back, molded minimizers, strapless, backless and plunge. Va Bien bodysuits feature varying amounts of control and include full-figure sizes. With a commitment to pieces that are pretty and feminine, Va Bien also dominates a large segment of the bridal lingerie market. Full-figure, longline and plunge bustier bras are ideal solutions under wedding gowns. They're embellished with beautiful laces and satins, yet feature very practical construction like side boning, removable straps and garters, and firm support panels. Brides find Va Bien pieces to be sexy, pretty and affordable for their big day.
For any occasion when you want a shapely silhouette combined with feminine, fashionable style, there's a Va Bien bra, bodysuit or bustier to suit your needs.
