LOFT believes in offering versatile, accessible, and affordable fashion with undeniably feminine appeal, special, and unexpected details with a (very) flattering fit.
The new brand extension will be introduced as an lingerie apparel line called LOFT Intimates. LOFT Intimates promises the same special and unexpected details, feminine appeal, and flattering fit from the brand she already loves and trust. Every woman knows that clothing only looks as great on the outside; however, only if she has the proper intimates underneath.

This brand was design in helping women to exude confidences, with a touch of glamour and fabulosity!
