Barely There Intimates
“I strongly believe that every woman can feel flirty and sexy without sacrificing comfort.” – Mary Kso, Barely There Intimates.
Mary Kso, founder of Barely There Intimates, understands one of the most intimate things you own caresses your body on a daily basis. This is why every bra, panty, and bodysuit she crafts is infused with passion, skill and love.
In fact, each garment is lovingly handmade by the designer herself. From pattern grading, cutting, sewing, and packaging all production is done by hand, so each piece is absolutely unique.
Barely There Intimates reflects a desire to make women feel comfortable, sexy and playful at the same time. Pieces range from lacy bodysuits, embroidered halter tops, sheer bras and open cup styles to delicate lingerie sets. Bottoms are just as varied and are designed to match.
“I want to help make every woman feel comfortable, but yet sexy and playful,” said Mary. “Because when you’re wearing something special and pretty, even if no one sees it – you immediately feel better.”
There is a lot of variety to the Barely There Intimates collection and one of the things that ties it all together is how Mary plays with coverage. Lace and sheer panels are sometimes mixed in one set or one fabric dominate others styles. Embroideries allow for a generous or a suggestive peek at skin.
All of Barely There Intimates styles are made by hand in Israel. Mary makes sure her customers understand that each product is custom and that it may take up to 2 – 3 weeks for it to ship out. She makes herself available to customer questions and suggestions.
“I can’t say enough good things about Mary and her shop. Her designs are so lovely and I’m so happy with this set,” said a recent Etsy customer. “Panties fit perfectly, but I had some issues with the strap length of the bralette. Mary was so helpful and flexible and was able to modify the design to work for me. To avoid back and forth shipping from Israel, let her know all your measurements (including strap length) when you place your order.”
The brand is also active on social media attracting new customers. Her Instagram feed unfurls beautiful images from her collection punctuated with cheeky posts having fun and informing her customers at the same time. There are some great images of Mary’s lingerie paired with ready-to-wear including Barely There Intimates’ Divine white lace and mesh set:
Barely There Intimates fans already know Mary spreads the word about new arrivals consistently on Instagram with the latest announcement just two weeks ago. Mary’s swoon-worthy designs should be more than enough reason for you to follow her online and social media.
Mary says that beauty, the human form, movies, art and nature all serve as Muses for Barely There Intimates adding that the delicacy and softness of the fabrics she uses from lace, satin, velvet also stimulate her imagination.
“I try to present new styles almost every month, trying to offer diversity of styles, fits and fabrics,” said Mary.
