Company History

At the time of establishment in 1995, Lin & Barrett CEO and Founder Margarita Ivanchenko, with her background in buying and merchandise management of intimate apparel with major retailers, recognized there was a gap in the lingerie market:

The lingerie customer was seeking service, quality, fitting expertise, and a complete product and size range. The major retailers no longer offered the service and fitting expertise for which they were once renowned. They lacked insight into how every woman, regardless of size, shape or style, desired and deserved to feel in her intimate apparel.

With this, Lin & Barrett was born and became a specialty lingerie store that was “home” to the customer. This is a place where clients are warmly welcomed, listened to, and attended to with respect.

Lin & Barrett currently operate five stores with a focus on lingerie, sleepwear, swimwear, hosiery and accessories and offer the largest size range available. In a continued effort to improve our service offering to our customers, Lin & Barrett hold regular ‘feedback meetings’ with major suppliers to discuss the merits or shortcomings of each available style.

Lin & Barrett has a genuine desire to understand its ever-changing market. Unlike, major retailers who cater to perceived ‘average-sized’ customers, Lin & Barrett distinguishes itself by taking time to celebrate the individuality of its customers. Through this point of difference, Lin & Barrett offers customers a thoroughly enjoyable shopping experience.

Trust Lin & Barrett for a Perfect Comfort Fit.
