Set up by friends Helena Boas and Donella Tarantelli, their concept was to create a new brand of high quality, everyday women's underwear in beautiful but practical fabrics. They were shortly joined by Debbie Missing, who brought with her over 15 years of experience in the underwear industry. Launching with the Cotton Basics Range, made using only the finest US Supima cotton, in eight basic styles, Bodas has always put a strong emphasis on sourcing the best fabrics they can find. The lingerie range now runs to five key fabrics; Supima Cotton (the original), Smooth Tactel, Sheer Tactel, Jabouley Lace and Sheer Mesh. Bodas now also designs nightwear, loungewear and swimwear, the emphasis still being on finding the best fabrics around. They work closely with their customers and know how particular they are; so, the nightwear is made from wonderfully soft 100% cotton, the swimwear is sleek, lightweight, and super-quick to dry and the t-shirts are woven for them in Canada from the softest jersey Supima cotton yarn.
