Today is Marilyn Monroe’s birthday. Happy Birthday Marilyn! And we’ve joined forces across the pond with Bandelettes to launch a new and exciting photo challenge ‘Marilyn’s Best Kept Secret’.

If Bandelettes existed back in the 1950’s then we know that Marilyn Monroe would have swooned over the pretty lace thigh bands. Not only do they look gorgeous, but they also stop thigh chafing before it even starts (hallelujah right girls?)

As an icon of style, glamour and femininity, Marilyn Monroe has continued to inspire and become a positive role model for many women today, and we want to celebrate that!

That’s why, we’d love it if you joined us to snap yourself recreating the iconic moment when Miss Monroe’s white dress cheekily floats up – but this time flash a little of those stunning Bandelettes! Grab some friends and have fun snapping!

Marilyn's Secret

Each week, a lucky winner will be selected at random to win an a pair of Bandelettes to compliment and complete your summer wardrobe, so thigh chaffing will forever be a thing of the past! Each winner will be featured right here on our blog, as well as on our Facebook, Twitter and Instagram pages.

A recent customer at Mish, Zoe, had these lovely words to say about the anti-chafing thigh bands; “Thank you from the bottom of my heart for stocking Bandelettes! I have never felt so sexy wearing a skirt and I just needed to share how extremely happy and comfortable this has allowed me to be.”


To enter, all you need to do is:
• Photograph yourself wearing a pair of Bandelettes and recreating Marilyn Monroe’s famous image.
• Share your image on Twitter, Instagram or Facebook using #MarilynsSecret and tagging us @MishLingerie (Twitter and Instagram) @Mish Online (Facebook).


The photo challenge will close Friday July 31st.
