As the global leader in innerwear, Triumph will continue to uphold its track record of global success in the manufacturing and trading of modern and satisfying products that represent the pinnacle of lingerie and innerwear development in countries around the world.
Triumph 125th Anniversary party highlights the qualities that set the company apart - Innovative, Fashionable, Creative and Impressive – by way of a retrospective exhibition and a fashion show that traces Triumph’s leadership in feminine innerwear from 1886 to the present. The fashion show takes the form of a stage performance featuring 125 sets of Triumph lingerie and a surprise appearance by legendary sex icon Penpak Sirikul and sexy pop star Kathareeya English. The show comprises six separate sets representing six periods in Triumph’s history:
• 1st Set: 1886-1949
- “Royal Lacing”: Anything that stood in the way of an s-shaped silhouette was laces out of sight. The bust and the bottom were accentuated, the waist and the hips were tightly pulled into shape, in line with the ideal of regal beauty during the time of the German Empire and across Europe.
- “Golden Twenties”: Lighter corsets were modernised. Triumph successfully manufactured products with ever-fewer seams.
- Following the Great Depression in 1929, stylish elegance replaced sophisticated chic. Triumph launched the first strapless corset and further innovations such as the first bras with front closing and adjustable straps.
• 2nd Set: 1950–1960
- 1953: Launch of the “Fitted Fifties” following the introduction of the “New Look,” an emphasis on feminine forms. Corsets made a comeback.
- 1954: Triumph introduced a bra strap made with stretch yarns.
- 1956: Triumph began its long-lasting collaboration with German couturier Heinz Oestergaard and established fashion shows – for the first time the models did not wear leotards under the garments but march past the audience with the lingerie on their bare skin
- 1960: The Swinging Sixties began.
- 1966: Triumph launched the “Doreen” style , made of polyamide with 15% elastane.
- 1967: Triumph became the first lingerie maker to use the molded cup technique to eliminate the need for seams.
- 1962: Triumph began production of bikinis and swimsuits. Advertising also moved in a new direction targeting the self-assured woman.
• 3rd Set: 1970–1990
- The Wild Seventies came with a new lightness. Triumph developed extremely thin and light fabrics using Lycra and nylon. The glamorous “Triumph 70 Fashion Show,” the biggest fashion show ever seen at the time, toured through Europe and Asia; altogether the Triumph runway covered a distance of more than 25,000 km.
- At the end of the 1970s the sloggi brand was introduced during the time of “The Cotton Revolution,” the brand offered bras and briefs made with particularly soft cotton, providing figure-hugging and wrinkle-free.
- Youth and sexual freedom became important advertising themes for Triumph: beauty, sexuality and sensuality were depicted realistically and a fully transparent bra was advertised in Germany with the slogan “So what? – The body is in fashion”.
- To gain access to high-end customers with luxury lifestyles, Triumph took over the French men’s underwear brand HOM in 1986, followed by the purchase of the iconic women’s lingerie brand Valisere in 1990.
• 4h Set: 1990–2000
- 1990: The Feel-Good Decade – A Longing for Nature. Triumph had already banned the excessive use of chemicals in production processes. This year high-quality organic cotton, along with nickel-free hooks and eyes, came into use while shoulder pads disappeared and the push-up bra flourished.
- 1998: Triumph launched the “Simply Soft”: a seamless bra molded using ultrasonic heat to join the seams; once worn, it adapts to the wearer’s shape without unsightly seams.
• 5th Set : 2000s
- 2000: A craze for the Maximizer, a push-up bra, spread among Asian women while European women sought the Minimizer bra, which optically reduces the bust by one cup size and offers superior support and comfort.
- 2003: Triumph “Form & Beauty” range introduced the telescopic under-wiring for the highest level of comfort when moving.
- 2008: “Triumph Inspiration Award” (TIA) created to offer talented young designers around the world a chance to make a name for themselves in the world of fashion.
- 2011: As the company celebrates 125 years of creativity and innovation, Triumph continues to set industry standard by emphasising the ability to produce perfectly fitting lingerie based on in-depth knowledge and understanding of the female form. As a leader in the global lingerie market, Triumph continues to uphold its successful track record of manufacturing and marketing modern and satisfying products that represent the cutting edge of lingerie development in countries around the world.
The sixth and final set of the show, The Future – Shape Sensation features the latest shapewear collection created by Triumph for women around the world.

TRIUMPH Hosts “Get Ready to Party,”
Offers Tips for Choosing the Correct Fitting Lingerie
To Enhance Figures and Boost Confidence
Bangkok, June 29, 2011: Triumph International (Thailand), the leader in lingerie and swimwear, kicked off a series of celebrations of its parent company Triumph International’s 125th anniversary with an informative and intimate party today. The event, dubbed Get Ready to Party is held to introduce the brands’ latest collection, Triumph “Party Bra,” and to share expert tips for choosing perfect fitting, and fun loving matching ideas of Triumph bras with outerwear.
Selecting the right-fitting bra starts with proper measurements. To ensure the right fit and comfort, measurements should be made in centimeters, not inches. To arrive at the right bra size, measure under-bust and bustline while standing straight, with arms flat along the body.
To measure the under-bust, make sure the measuring tape is positioned close around the ribcage along the bottom edge of the bra. To measure the bustline, wrap the measuring tape around the fullest point of the breasts. Then calculate the difference between the under-bust and the bustline to get the right cup size from the available choices of Cup A to H.
Once a woman have chosen bras that fit well, she needs to pay attention to the way she puts them on. The right way to put on a bra is to fit the cups to the breasts, put arms through the straps and lean slightly forward to fit naturally in to the bra. Then reach back to fasten the clasp, push the extra flesh along each side inside the cups and adjust the shoulder straps. Once the bra is put on, stand straight and check to see if the cup, side panels and back closure of the bra are level with one another. Then raise the arms to make sure the shoulder straps are not too tight that it digs onto the shoulder and the cups stay comfortably snug and not moved around.
In this season Triumph is introducing the Party Bra collection, comprising sexy designs that can be worn as innerwear or part of outerwear. The artsy designs with pleats and cheerful print lend themselves to easy mix-and-matching with denim, while the halter-neck styles are perfect with T-shirts.
The collection also features black-and-white animal prints with lace detail, ruffled straps, and jewel ornaments, each piece ideal for matching with a dress or cropped top to create a vampy party look.
To maintain the shape and color of lingerie, Triumph recommends hand-washing, especially for bras with underwire and padded bras, as machine washing can cause them to lose their shape. Do not wring the bras; instead, gently squeeze out excess water without twisting them out of shape. Hang dry on clothe hangers with the clasps fastened in a well-ventilated area away from direct sunlight to avoid stretching and fading. Once dried, store the bras unfolded to prevent them losing their shape.
Find underwear that fits wells and gives your comfort, elegance and confidence from the inside out with these simple tips. And you’ll surely find yourself the life of the party!

The panel of 7 judges was comprised of some of the nation’s most famous fashion designers, an icon stylist, and the editor-in-chief of “Women Health” magazine accompanied by representatives from Triumph Thailand. The panel worked hard to select the best design to represent the country.
“The Precious Adamas” or precious diamond design from Ms. Panta emerged as the proud winner. Her inspiration was drawn from women’s beauty and strength like the true brilliance, precious value, yet most tough characteristic of the best diamond.
The show was a true success; the media loved the program and so far has featured numerous pictures and stories in newspapers, websites and TV programs. The students were also taken with experience, enjoying every bit of the spotlight and left with lasting memories of being part of an impressive show.
