5 Canadian lingerie brands you need to know

By: Lisa Guimond

These Canadian small-batch labels are off the hook. 

Ellesmere

Julia Rechel found @mrreeow on Instagram and asked her to front her debut collection because she wanted a “real person” in her campaign. The result is a series of untouched photos that reflect Rechel’s desire to create garments that “promote confidence and inner strength.”

Check it out here.

Kayleigh Peddie

Before launching her made-to-measure label, Kayleigh Peddie collected vintage lingerie. Now she sews bespoke garments for a range of body shapes and sizes. Her designs have a retro feel with a modern touch. Peddie believes that “every day is a perfect day to wear good lingerie.” We agree. 

Check it out here.

 

 

Fortnight 

Christina Remenyi was one of the first on Toronto’s indie lingerie scene and has since made a name for herself by creating sexy staples that are known for their fabulous fit. Last year she launched her e-shop, and a fun collab is on the way. (You heard it here first!) 

Check it out here.

Mary Young 

Mary Young works with seamstresses in Montreal to make her comfortable but stylish lingerie. She describes her aesthetic as ’90s Calvin Klein with a modern twist. Think of it as updated classics with elevated detailing.

Charlie Paille

“I just want to do what I love,” says Charlie Paille, who left New York, where she was working as a model, to set up an atelier in Montreal. Paille is a one-woman operation. “I create every piece in the collection myself, and I’m even the face of my own campaign!”
