Va Bien (French for “fits well”), is a veteran, esteemed maker of solution-driven bras, shapewear and bridal. I am sure that lingerie addicts have met with this name at least once in their search for the perfect solution to enhance the bustline and minimize the tummy, hips, thighs, derriere and back. I know I did, and I was pleasantly surprised to discover a brand with a long tradition for creating elegant shapewear with French design aesthetic.
My first love was the Va Bien Low Plunge Bodysuit, a sexy solution for transforming a deep cleavage dress in a huge success. But, as you are about to discover, there is much more to know about this brand.
Marianne and Richard Gimble founded Va Bien in 1979, in a time where shapewear featured outer panels and obtrusive stitching, showing through outfits and laying coarse against the skin. Their success started with the launch of a smooth and strealined bodysuit (Va Bien Secret All-in-One), which everyone loved and appreciated.
Today, Va Bien is renowned for the contemporary approach to the fine art of corsetry, bras and shapewear.
The vintage-style bodysuits are considered Va Bien‘s main attraction (and are soon to be worn on ABC’s new show Pan Am!).
But, Va Bien offers a wider range of solutions. I must mention the patented ultra-LiftTM bra cup, Minus Touch, Smooth Couture and Fanny Fabulous (bottom lifting) Collections, along with seamless and full-figure bras.
It’s also no secret that brides love Va Bien and women worlwide choose their full bustier corsets (available for all sizes) to be part of the most important day of their lives.
What else can you find? T-shirt Bras, backless bras, maternity bras, full figure bodysuits bustiers (including bridal bustiers), strapless slips, camisoles, High Waist briefs, panties, footless tights, and the list goes on.
Va Bien retails at an affordable price, from $28.50 to $90.00, in numerous locations throughout the U.S., including online at Barenecessities.com, HerRoom.com and VaBienLingerie.com.
Now you can understand why Va Bien is so famous among celebrities, including: Dita Von Teese, Patti Labelle, Alicia Silverstone, Sanda Bullock, Laura Bush, Kelli Garner, Margot Robbie, Pan Am Wardrobe, Grey’s Anatomy Wardrobe, USA Studios, FOX Studios, Warner Bros. Pictures, and more.
