Have you been freezing for the past two weeks? I have. Despite living in a southern climate, we had temperatures as low as 17 during the polar vortex. After spending two weeks huddling indoors in big bulky sweaters, I’m ready to break out all of my cute and colorful lingerie again!
If you’re looking to infuse your lingerie drawer with some extra color to get a head start on celebrating warmer weather, there are some great choices out there already. Some new pieces from Spring/Summer lines have already been released, while other lines took a surprisingly colorful approach to their later winter offerings. All of these choices are easily available already and cover both full bust and the full bust/plus size category. Most importantly all of them will remind you of sunshine and all of the lovely benefits that warmer weather has to offer.
This bra was a hot topic among bloggers when the Curvy Kate released their spring preview pictures, so it’s great to see that it’s showed up earlier than anticipated on Figleaves. This is Curvy Kate’s first longline release and it’s absolutely gorgeous. It’s nice to see a brand taking the “florals are for full bust/plus size ladies” philosophy and injecting it with some electric colors and new silhouettes. This bra is definitely on my must try list for 2014.
Cleo does a fabulous job at making interesting designs that also function perfectly as every day bras. This Millie bra is no exception. I love that it’s colorful but not super girly. I’ve seen lots of neons and lots of geometric prints, but this is probably the easiest to just pick up and wear. In terms of design, the lace on the top gives it a little more flexibility in terms of shape. This is one that should work well for lots of different women.
Everyone is really excited about Tutti Rouge’s new line full of brights and neons, so it’s nice to see Bravissimo release this one early as a teaser of sorts. While this set won’t appeal to everyone, it certainly represents a new take on what full bust bras can look like. I love the lace and polka dots combined with the bright apple green.
I love my Panache sports bras – so much that I’ve bought two. This colorway has me considering a third. These sports bras are fabulous for even the highest impact activities and are responsible for seriously improving my tennis score. Cups run large, so I’d recommend sizing down a cup size if you’re new to them.
One of the things I associate with spring is all of the pretty green leaves. If the Tutti Rouge bra above makes me think of lemonade, this bra makes me think of flowering trees and bushes. I love the design of this bra, including the keyhole cutout and the sheer tops of the cups. I’m happy to see Figleaves stocking a greater variety of brands that cater to ladies beyond the D through G range as well!
Which of these bras makes you think of spring? Are you ready for more colorful lingerie yet?
