The Charnos brand was founded in 1936 by Charles Henry Noskwith (Char....Nos!) who had a unique passion for high quality raw materials, new technologies in yarns and knitting manufacturing techniques – making innovation the heart of the family business ethos. This ethos stuck, and when the business embraced lingerie in 1958, as a natural extension to its hosiery business, the brand developed a unique place in the hearts of women across the country, responding to their needs and delivering exquisitely designed yet highly functional products to support them throughout their day.
At Charnos we’re as passionate today as we have always been about bringing you exquisite design and affordable luxury without compromising on fit. Grown-up, informed, stylish and effortlessly seductive, the range of Charnos sub-brands delivers a considered and complete lingerie wardrobe.
With beautifully crafted seasonal ensembles for everyday and special occasion wear, the Charnos Collections combine classic design with contemporary styling to create uniquely refined and feminine lingerie. Our Superfit range delivers the perfect foundation for an effortlessly polished look. This year-round collection includes shape-smoothing and enhancing bras, slips and body-shapers, in natural, blush, brulée, white and black, providing wearable solutions for flawless outer-wear dressing. The Charnos hourglass is the industry benchmark for iconic style and silhouette delivered with high level control – stylish design working seamlessly as performance shapewear. Charnos Bridal combines glamour and romance into two exquisite ranges, Belle and Eve. Richly embellished, beautifully detailed lingerie that exudes sophistication and elegance to ensure perfection for the perfect day.
