Bonang Matheba causing a distraction!


Top Billing and Revlon ambassador Bonang “Queen B” Matheba recently launched her lingerie line in collaboration with Woolworths. This South African ‘it’ girl has worked her way up in the entertainment industry and is a brand to be reckoned with. Woolworths took the opportunity to work with this highly successful young entrepreneur by launching her “Bonang For Distraction” lingerie line. Her line comprises of items in classic black, rose red and animal print.

Lingerie shouldn’t only make a woman feel comfortable in her own skin, but it should also make her feel confident and sexy which is what encouraged Bonang to create this line. For those who are not so clued up about lingerie, the words underwear and lingerie are sometimes used interchangeably, but there are a few differences between the two. Technically, all lingerie is underwear, but not all underwear is lingerie. Underwear is worn for practicality and comfort by both genders, while lingerie is typically worn by women because it is attractive.


At every award ceremony Queen B is on every best dressed list, so we have no doubt that this range is nothing less of class and sophistication. What a woman wears inside her clothes is as important as what she is wearing outside, Woolworths and Bonang have given South African women an opportunity to purchase some good quality lingerie, in time for Valentine’s Day.


When asked what she wanted to achieve with the designs of the lingerie Queen B says “I wanted to create a line that would cater to different women, as Distraction has a broad size offering, going up to size DD+. Lingerie is an essential part of any woman’s closet, as it can do wonders for one’s confidence.” Her personal pick for Valentine’s is the Bonang For Distraction animal print and pink lace two-piece. Bonang has a banging body and it is fitting for her to be the face behind a line that shows off the beauty of a woman’s body. Woolworths has been a brand associated with quality, every product endorsed by Woolworths is guaranteed to be a quality product, in fact one of the Woolies values is “style and quality”, need I say more?!

Since joining the Top Billing team it seems Bonang has been raising the bar for other South African TV personalities, she has worked incredibly hard to be where she is and we respect her hustle. Being the first South African black woman to be the face of Revlon, she continues to break boundaries. Her lingerie line is available at selected Woolworths stores and can also be purchased online, for more about Bonang For Distraction lingerie line, visit
