Located in fashionable Flinders Lane in Melbourne, Intimo Lingerie was founded in the 70’s by Sue Whyte. She began by revolutionising Australian women’s fashion including childrenswear.
Intimo was founded in 1995 by Sue Whyte with a mission to give a highly personalised service and to give product design and innovation to the Australian woman.
Today Intimo is recognised as one of the leading lingerie brands in the whole of Australasia. The company now employs over 50 staff and has nearly 2,000 consultants. The range of lingerie on offer is quite unique that continually evolves, expands and grows. Sue’s mission is to bring the dignity of a well fitting bra, personal fulfillment and professional pride to women everywhere.
Intimo works closely with a small band of handpicked suppliers that form a partnership and a close working relationship. Intimo actually sends their Lingerie Stylists to visit their suppliers in China on a regular basis to ensure the the production process is exactly as it should be.
The Stylists check for everything from production techniques to quality control and product development. This hands on supervision ensures the continuity of quality supply for all Intimo garments.

There is a continual program for Stylists to develop their product knowledge online so that they can give the assistance needed in; measuring and fitting, body shape styling and understanding the technical functions of each bra.
