‘Hips and Curves’ Get It Right

1 Mar

Hello Vixens,

I hope you are sitting down. I just went a bit crazy, and you will see why in just a second. Hips and Curves, a website specializing in full-figure lingerie, has done something so very refreshing: their models are real, curvy women wearing lingerie that has been designed perfectly for sumptuous, flattering curves. Wonders of the world!

The second most-amazing discovery is the sheer amount of products available in an expansive range of sizes from 36C to 52J in bras, and 1/1x-4/4x for bottoms and hosiery!  They carry everyday lingerie such as bras and underwear (OMG, THESE RIGHT NOW) robes and sleepwear, hosiery, shapewear, and garter belts, as well as corsets, costumes and flirty knickers. Bridal, boudoir, burlesque, booty. It’s all there! Even steampunk!!

Claudette Lingerie

20 Nov

Hello lovely. How have you been? I do hope you are feeling well. Myself, I am keen to introduce you to another lovely new lingerie brand. People often say that comfort is key, and Claudette has that in spades.

Claudette Lingerie

The creator and founder of Claudette, Robin Levitt, and her team of women had a simple wish:

“All we wanted was a pretty bra that fit”

The designers set out with this idea and took matters into their own hands. Now we have Claudette, an entire collection of lingerie that fulfills so many other wishes: beautiful, flattering, comfortable, luxurious and affordable.

Claudette Brassiere collections come in a wide range of cup sizes up to a 38 band.  The collection is designed in London using standard UK sizes ranging from A – D, DD, E, F, FF, and G, which means that the shaping and structure of the garments enhances curves beautifully. Full-figured women will look amazing in these bras and knickers.

I love the color blocking of the Sophia collection, as well as the photo-shoot inspired by the Italian goddess, Sophia Loren. I adore the 60’s vibe and the color panels that flatter the eye, while the nylon-spandex blend offers comfortable, breathable support.

The collection is a wonder-of-threes, featuring three different bra shapes and matching bottoms, in three different color-ways (a deep sea grey & white, mauve & peach, and turquoise & yellow).

Sophia bras include a convertible-strapless, an unlined demi, and a lined underwire balconette. Mix and match with a boy-leg brief, a high-waisted brief with detachable garter, or a a bikini-thong that looks incredibly comfortable.

The ‘Cool Cotton’ collection is a perfect basic set which comes in black, mauve, or white. The breathable cotton-poly blend will keep you cool and comfortable, in the most flattering, supportive way!

I also love the seductive mesh contrast of the Dessous collection which comes in black, mauve, leopard print, and neon pink! So flirty and cute!

The new AW 2011 collections from Claudette will be debuting online and at select retailers in the US and UK.

Curves Ahead

Look out, this post is full of gorgeous curves & sumptuous lingerie!

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.
