French lingerie brand DIM is to exit Russia owing to the current situation in the country and its growing isolation in the international arena. At the end of March 2022, there were 40 boutiques of the chain in Russia, but this number had declined in recent months.
The company has now stopped deliveries to Russia, although its local franchise stores will continue to work under another brand.
Of the international retailers operating in the Russian lingerie market, Victoria’s Secret, Oysho (Inditex), Women’secret (Tendam Group) and Triumph have also left the country.
