Calida is one of Europe's leading manufacturers of beautiful, high-quality lingerie and activewear for women. Based in Switzerland, Calida has an international reputation for exceptional fabrics, comfort and fit. Their lingerie has clean, classic lines that stay in style year after year. The Calida lines include panties, boy shorts, briefs, thongs, bras and demi-bras, as well as camisoles and sleepwear.
Panties are offered in a variety of classic styles, including high-cut briefs, traditional briefs, boy shorts and thongs. Some are embellished with stretch lace. But what makes Calida panties exceptional are the fabrics. Whether cotton blends, stretch cotton or 100% pure organic cotton, Calida panties are beloved for their softness. Reviewers have gone so far as to say that Calida panties are the "Cadillacs of panties." That isn't their only benefit; Calida products are durable, holding up wash after wash. Panty waistbands are designed to lay flat against your skin without digging. And the leg openings are just right--no riding up.
Calida bras enjoy the same reputation. No over-the-top designs or trendy embellishments here. Their bra styles include bustier-style soft cup bras, contour bras and underwires. Many styles are offered in cotton and cotton blends. The simple, meticulous construction features bras made of soft poly modal on the outside and smooth cotton on the inside against your skin. Some soft cup styles have lightweight cups with gentle soft padding, to add subtle shape and support. Calida also offers cotton rib bra tops and cropped soft cup bras that are as good for sleeping as they are for all day wear. Some styles are completely metal-free. Customers also love Calida's underwire bras, saying they fit perfectly and are the most comfortable bras they own. Calida bras are often popular with women who wear smaller sizes. Most bras range from extra-small, the equivalent of a 32B bra size through large, which compares to a 38B bra size.
Calida sleepwear has a fanatically loyal following. It is not the least expensive sleepwear on the market, but fans say its's worth every penny. The long sleeved cotton nightgown, offered in pale blue, pastel pink and white is ultra soft cotton that will keep you comfortable all year long. For some, this is the only nightgown they'll wear because of its incredible comfort. Calida also offers wool and silk blend leggings and tees that are great for sleeping, lounging and even as an extra layer in cold weather. With thermal warmth and moisture-wicking properties, these garments are as comfortable as they are versatile. Other sleepwear styles include short sleeved nightshirts and camisoles.
