While in Vegas M.I.S.S. had the opportunity to peep the debut collection of Top Secret, the brain child of sisters Andrea and Michelle Varat whose goal is to make your undergarments stand out as much as your fabulously styled outfit. That’s right: although us ladies spend time fidgeting with our bra straps to make sure they aren’t seen under a strappy tank, there’s now a product out there that will make you itch to have your undergarments noticed.
It was while traveling in Brazil that Miami native Michelle noticed bandeau tops that were meant to be seen, not hidden underneath a top. Eventually partnering with her sister Andrea, who spent time working in fashion’s epicenter – New York City – the siblings started Top Secret Society, aiming to create sexy, fashionable undergarments.
And now we all can reap the benefits of these sisters’ hard work. Ruched sequined bandeau tops have enough detailing to be worn as a shirt on their own, while the leopard or cobra print tops allow you to bring out your animal instincts. In the spirit of traditional lingerie, the Varat sisters also have a lace version of their top. What’s also fabulous is that these garments won’t break the bank: a solid-colored bandeau will only run you $36 – an investment piece at an economical price!
In just a short amount of time, it’s clear that the Varat sisters have found their niche in the fashion world: their products are offered globally, in the U.S., Canada, Caribbean, Greece and the Middle East. (Check the official Top Secret Society Web page for more info on where to buy.) Now our only dilemma is where we can buy more blouses that will expose these one-of-a-kind pieces…
