Dessu sheer pleasure for women

IN WHAT could be an Australian first, a lingerie boutique catering to larger women has opened in Subiaco.

Dessu managing director Renee Burns said she wanted to provide undergarments for fuller figures as they were extremely hard to find in conventional fashion boutiques.

“I’m the first person in WA, and possibly Australia, to do so,” Ms Burns said.

“Some department stores have size 18s but they are ugly beige things with extra thick straps at the back.

“All women want to be able to wear attractive lingerie so we provide ranges that are both supportive and sexy using satins, laces and sheer fabrics.”

The boutique’s most popular items to date are suspender belts, bridal ranges, strapless bras and hosiery with greater thigh-room.

Dessu stock bras from size 10 (E and F cups) to size 24 (F, G and H cups).

Ms Burns imports stock from Italy, Belgium and the US as there are currently no manufacturers of such garments in Australia.

With many women claiming that they are alienated by today’s fashion if they are not a size 8 or 10, the boutique appears to be filling a distinct niche.
