We believe that clothes have the power to reveal us and that we must dress to our true worth , wearing the colors that illuminate us and the shapes that enhance us. Without worrying about little heat strokes.
Akimba is not just a lingerie brand, we are reinventing our relationship with clothes:
In a world where fashion has become disposable, we invite you to take a step aside and buy less but better.
Choose beautiful, timeless pieces, well cut, with noble materials to accompany you with panache in your daily adventures. Take care of your clothes, wash them sparingly so that they keep their shine for as long as possible.
We have created the secret ally for your busy days!
What does “AKIMBA” mean?

This is Wonder Woman's position. A position of strength and courage!
When we stand like this, we feel courageous and ready to face whatever comes our way. Our range of possibilities no longer has limits.
We want all women to feel strong and confident like this, every day!
We are committed to the environment and we have carefully chosen all the materials to bring you comfort and performance with as little impact as possible on the planet.
All our materials are OEKO-TEX 100 and REACH certified.
