Anita prides itself on specialty underwear and swimwear that has an ingenious fit, uncompromising comfort and incredible quality for over 130 years. This brand started in 1886 when a man named Emst Max Helbig started the foundation for a factory that produced suspenders and products for medical requirements. He soon extended the portfolio to include garters, corsets, girdles and the very first bras. Anita quickly made a name for itself on the German market (and around the globe) as a leading provider of specialist shape wear.
