I hold a special place in my heart for lingerie designers who create garments that are wide-ranging in options and styles.  Sure, made-to-fit lingerie is a peachy dream, but that isn’t always possible.  Mass-produced lingerie can tend to be generic in shape and style.  If you are a curvy woman, finding well-fitting lingerie can become even more challenging!

So its a fantastic moment when a lingerie designer comes along and offers amazing, progressive designs that are suitable for a varied range of wishes and needs.  Even more amazing is the lingerie designer who dreams up flattering garments for curvy figures, without sacrificing style and comfort.

The Eveden Group is a family of highly-respected lingerie brands including Fauve, Fantasie, Freya, Elomi and Huit, and they all absolutely fit the bill (and more):

“We are leaders in the D+ intimate apparel market, offering a whole family of brands, each with their own personality and position in the market. We understand that one size does not fit all and that every woman is different in terms of her size, shape, taste and even how she feels! We offer high quality, fashion conscious lingerie and bra-sized swimwear.

All of our materials are responsibly sourced from our trusted suppliers around the globe, in more than 30 countries and manufactured in high quality environments with rigorously applied employee welfare policies and practices.”

Gorgeous lingerie and a progressive-minded approach to the entire process?  Sign me up and strap me in!  Whether you prefer a wider bra strap, want to customize the cup shape, or you’re looking for better side-support, each of these brands has you covered! Many of the classic bra designs and newer styles come in larger cup sizes as well.

Not to mention, the new Spring/Summer ’11 collections could not be more beautiful and satisfying to behold.

Fantasie bras feature lower and/or wider underwires for more comfortable support while “three-section cups” shape and lift.   The bras also have incredible side support “power wings for control and anchorage”, which are embedded in the band.  Fantasie bras come in various cup shapes including balcony, molded, plunge and many other bra cup styles.  Their spring collection is full of pretty florals, prints, stripes and delicate french lace accents, with stretchy fabrics that enhance and flatter.  Matching briefs come in all shapes and sizes as well, from high-waist to low-rise, hipster, boyshort, thong, and tanga shorts.  Fantasie is definitely worth checking out!

Freya Lingerie is a sexier, bolder brand that is perfect for the fashionista and the practi-gal, with intricate details, kooky prints, and pretty amazing architecture.  They have everyday pretty-bras, sports bras & active wear, and nursing bras.  Freya is sure to have something pretty to tickle your fancy!

Elomi is “beautiful lingerie for the fuller figure”, and they do not disappoint!  Their new collections are so pretty and glamorous, with supportive bra architecture and full coverage knickers.  I love the styling of their SS11 photo shoot, from the crystalline sparkle to the lovely color palettes.
