(From The Times of Israel) When Meghan Markle donned a white floppy bowed blouse bodysuit for a recent evening event with her prince, the chic shirt by the Tuxe label won accolades, and immediately sold out.
“Trying to find Meghan’s favorite bodysuit? We’re taking preorders! Visit the link in our bio to get yours now!” yelped the label’s Instagrammed snapshot of Markle and Prince Harry.
It has to be a dream come true for Tamar Daniel, the designer and creator behind Tuxe Body Wear, a Philadelphia-based company she founded.
Daniel, who grew up in London and attended Tel Aviv’s Shenkar College of Engineering and Design, initially worked at Topshop and then for Anthropologie, working in the knit department.
It was in 2008 that Daniel first rethought the bodysuit, when she noticed a her friends returning to tucked in shirts and suits for job interviews.
She told Vogue that her first piece was a white button-down bodysuit, and she replaced the usual snaps with a bra-style hook and eye, placing it higher on the pelvic bone, so that wearers wouldn’t sit on the closure.
Besides becoming a hit with office professionals, Orthodox Jewish and Muslim women also love the Tuxe bodysuits, because they offer full coverage.
But most importantly, Meghan Markle loves it too.
