Behind the name – Alice
We name each Candis underwear design, but the names aren’t simply chosen at random. Careful research goes into determining which names are best suited to the current collection. We firstly assign each collection a letter and each design within that collection is given a name starting with that letter. The final names are chosen from a shortlist we create based on the meanings of the names. Every name chosen reflects the everyday sexy designs and the ‘Candis Woman’.
