MODERN MATCH LINGERIE

Give the gift of empowerment to the women who inspire you everyday.
Made in Northern B.C., Modern Match Lingerie creates armour for women — in the form of beautifully-designed and comfortable fitting bras and underwear — so that they can feel confident as they tackle the day.
A customer favourite, Modern Match’s Front Closure Wireless Bra is an intuitive, supportive piece designed to live with the wearer. The cups are lined with a breathable power net to give shape and support. With a wide band for extra support, it’s the perfect bra for low-impact sports like yoga, cycling, kayaking, and Zoom meetings. The Wireless Bra is best paired with the ultra-light, ultra-silky, and ultra-breathable Go-To Thong, which can compliment tight leggings with no underwear lines.
What’s unique about each piece in Modern Match Lingerie’s collection is that they focus on elevating modern women with a modern fit, embracing and celebrating all bodies as equally strong and beautiful.
Shipping is available throughout B.C. and Canada. For more info, visit modernmatchlingerie.com.
