Founded in 2017 by Swedish duo Marie Stolt and Maria Lager, Understatement set out to change an everyday necessity by creating underwear that feels as good as it looks. In the spring of 2020, Yvet Malmveld joined the two, and the founding team was complete. "The three of us shared the vision of disrupting the underwear market, and wanted to create an inclusive arena to lift up and pay homage to women!"
No annoying underwire. No restrictive padding. No itchy tags. Our bralettes and panties are designed with comfort at the core and made to complement every body.
We carefully handpick all materials to create undergarments that feel as good as they look. Buttery soft microfiber from Italy. Feathery lace from Germany. Form-fitting elastic waistbands from Japan. We’re always seeking out new fabrics and technologies that are kinder to both the planet and your skin.
Our commitment to the women of the world influences everything we do. From the female-run and operated factories in Europe, to the women who wear our products - we want to contribute to a world where they can be whoever they want to be.
