A Letter of Love
My first order of manners came today and I am... reverent about my body in your clothes. You took my sagging tits and back fat and every single soft bit and made me feel SO beautiful.
I'm sure you get these messages all the time but good lord, you really are the titty witch. I've been self-conscious about my boobs since they first made an appearance, and I've been trying to tell myself that just because I've got tits that wilt like tulips out of water and nipples that face, like, ALL the way south at 23y/o does not mean that I am not still a beautiful young thing.... but it's difficult. or it WAS difficult - after 5 minutes on my body I'm pretty certain your clothes are going to take over my wardrobe, and I have never been happier about anything in my life. Every femme on earth deserves to wear your clothes 💕🌍 thank you for the beautiful things you make, and for working so hard to help so many women feel at home in their skins 💖🌺🌟
This dress does everything. It's fun, summery, sexy, casual, comfortable, classy, practical, and you never have to worry about what your doing or how you look because it stays in place and looks great.
Amazing top, fits lovely and looks great! I always receive compliments when wearing it :)
Never did I ever think that I would wear a bodycon dress ever!!!! But I now do, I feel fantastic and I look hot!! Thank you Sally for making the sexiest, comfiest cloths ever. And the icing on the cake......they don’t need ironing!!!!
I look divine, end of story. I am a little short and should probably size down but adjusting the straps helped. Colour green is so mesmerising. I was worried about my back fat(meh) but this dress can only flatter.
My most favourite purchase from Manners so far! Supportive and a perfect fit (I am a size 12 and wear small), I will be buying in every colour!
A brilliant vest top that I’ve so far worn on it’s own or under other things. It’s very versatile and the freedom of no bra is fantastic!
Nata Dress in Forest Green
Love them! So comfy, perfect for post partum time too.
I was sceptical about buying a crop top to fit my generous boobs, especially the pregnancy ones, but this was light and comfy.
Lovely quality, really nicely fitted top. Wonderful to not need to wear a bra!! The only thing I’ll mention is that I need to wear nipple covers with it.
Beautiful material, great fit & very stylish
I am a 32ddd, 5'8", 150lbs, I got a small. I think the dress would definitely accommodate many sizes. I've never worn a dress without a bra before because these girls aren't the perkiest. In my search to find clothes that allow me to go braless, it's become my life's work, I came across this store. I am more then pleased and I honestly have no complaints. I want to save all my money and try everything. The support doesn't smush em flat too much, but holds them snug. Like my tits are being held up by gentle angel hands. my bum too even.
It is very comfortable and I shall never wear a bra again. Thanks

Love this dress so much, vibrant pattern makes me feel so summery and full of joy!

Did you know?
We're 100% handmade with Love.
Each piece of clothing is made for you to be stretched and pulled, washed at the wrong heat and left on the line for too long, screwed up in bags with muddy boots and danced all night long in and still be your favourite piece of clothing every time.
Because we know life is messy so you need something as strong as you!

I am Sally, Solo parent and homeschooler of my 11 year old kid, Owner of manners London, lifelong hustler (on a quest for rest) & DV survivor (amongst other things) - in order of importance!
I am soft, strong, squishy, and curvy so the high street has never been my friend and seeing others empowered, confident and happy is my jam. I'm the one who shouts 'You look great in that dress!" to the person on the next carriage, (much to my kids embarrassment) so I wanted to translate that into clothes. Clothes that you put on and make you shout 'Damn, you look HOT in that' at your reflection, regardless of how fat or flat your bum is or how heavy or wonky your tits are, how broad or slim. There's so much power in that. In feeling happy in yourself.
Finding the right clothes for my shape has always been hard. I just want to feel good in the clothes I wear, you know? I want my soft strong body to feel sexy yet comfortable in clothes that don't f*ck up after one wash.
Not too much to ask right?
From the age of about 12 I start eddesigning my own pieces. It started off as something for my friends & I, but then word quickly spread. I’d visit England with half my suitcase full of clothes for mates. That's how it all began, just me wanting to feel powerful in my clothes, wanting to feel unapologetic about my body and wanting the same for every person around me!
When we take back our power and stand a little taller, speak a little louder, feel a little stronger, shit changes, we rise and in that rising we can give each other a leg up.
I want to create clothing and a community that lifts you up when all the people in you are tired. Clothes to fight in and clothes to cry in.
Love Sally x
