Dress like Marie - Inspiration, Happiness & Confidence!

We help women feel content with their body. Often women come to us uninspired - so many of us have something with our body that we are not happy about. Many even feel uncomfortable trying on clothes because of past negative experience of having trouble finding things that fit.

With us it will be fun to try out clothes and through styling we want to help women express their personality. A delicious and flattering outfit makes wonders for self-esteem and mood. Our speciality is to handpick and design delicious and flattering clothes for all women - regardless of size, shape and taste.We guarantee the most comfortable clothes that will make you happy. With us, you always get personalized service, both in our stores and through our webshop. Our styling concept and our custom-designed garments are based on a long experience of helping women of all shapes and sizes to find clothes that suit them.Remember, the beauty is in the eye of the beholder! // Marie Backman-Thors

Everything started by chance...

Dress Like Marie is a family run company that started in Oravais, a small village in Ostrobothnia, Finland. Marie Backman-Thors runs the company with her daughters Lisa and Emelie. The company started off by coincidence in 2008, when Marie's friends started showing interest in the clothes she wore and hade carefully sourced on her travels. Hence the name - Dress like Marie.The brand Dress Like Marie began in 2011. At the core of Dress like Marie is the idea that all women should feel satisfied with and proud of their unique bodies regardless of their body shape, size and age. We value garments that not only look good, but also feel good and have a good fit and are flattering.In 2013 we opened our online store, dresslikemarie.com. The headquarters and main warehouse is located in Mariehamn, Åland. Shops and retailers already exist across the country and the online store is growing at a fast pace. In 2016 our very own clothing brand, Dress like Marie Design, was launched.Today, it is still Marie herself, together with daughter Emelie, who makes all purchases and designs all Dress like Marie Design garments. Marie travels around the world to gain inspiration to influence our collections.

Dress like Marie Design - clothes for all shapes and sizes!

Marie had a vision - to create clothes that fit all types of bodies, in all sizes and shapes. What started as a small store in Ostrobothnia, Finland, has now grown into a strong brand with its own clothing brand, an online shop and several stores.Our goal with our custom-designed collection is:

  • To design great clothes that actually fit and are available in size S to 4XL.
  • Garments of high quality and reasonable prices.
  • Clothes that you can wear for several seasons and style in many different ways.
  • Clothes with a feminine design and fun patterns that sit nicely instantly, without any hassle.

Today, we design comfortable and practical clothing in Finland, that are manufactured in Portuguese factories offering good working environments for their employees and with emphasis on sustainability. We visit our factories several times a year to make sure that the garments are manufactured fairly and maintain a high quality. >>> Dress like Marie Design.Our clothes are based on many years of experience in managing different bodies and helping women develop their personal style.
