“Tia Lyn is the only lingerie brand participating during FFFweek.”
“The Essentials Collection will feature our slips that can function both as lingerie and as underpinnings for dresses. The soft fabric and lace is meant to look smooth underneath your wardrobe but are beautiful enough to be lingerie,” notes Tia. “We are reintroducing our Vintage Collection, which has received the CILA award two years in a row. This collection was always one of my personal favorites! It allows a woman to feel as glamorous as an old Hollywood actress, yet feel like it’s barely there.”

“FFFweek such a wonderful event to showcase the full figured market and I’m excited to see how the week unfolds,” said Tia.
After FFFWeek, Tia and Levan Tat will continue to work on the brand’s Signature Basic Collection. The goal is to create a fashionable range of mix and match, layerable intimates with ready-to-wear flexibility. The garments are primarily made of mesh with a stretch satin trim
“These pieces can be worn as outerwear over an evening dress or with a cami and jeans, yet can be transformed into inner wear when paired with a matching bra and panty set. The Signature Basic Collection is going to be a must-have in every woman’s wardrobe!” said Tia.
