I’d actually chosen another item for this week’s Lingerie of the Week. I’ve been traveling for the last 10 days, so I tried to work ahead by preselecting this week’s feature. I should have known better. Because as soon I saw this ‘Evangeline’ set, I knew it was the one…for this week anyway.
Molded cups aren’t really my “thing” anymore, but I am a fool for gorgeous lace. And the pairing of this lace with a beige background is so classic, so elegant, so timeless that I couldn’t help but fall in love. Those of you who are familiar with lingerie may also recognize the names “Fauve” and “Fantasie” as popular brands within the full bust community, and this gorgeous bra is available in sizes 30D thru 36G & 38FF. The matching knickers (which, let’s be real, I want to own despite being sized out of the bra) are available in sizes XS thru XL.
Fauve is a high-end brand, and this is some gorgeous lace, so the bra retails for an unsurprising $102 (the panties are $48). However, if you’ve been looking for a set that’s luxe enough for special occasions but also perfectly fine for everyday wear, I think this is it.

I love lace. Embroidery too. But especially lace.
It’s not just the delicate, gauze, ephemeral nature of beautiful lace, it’s also the artistry. Even machine made lace takes a tremendous amount of time and resources to produce, and the more complex a lace, the more beautiful it is. And while lace is beautiful on lingerie (which we both already know), it’s even more gorgeous when incorporated into daily wear. And that’s why I’m really digging Felice Art Couture. Not only is the lace (and embroidery) brilliant, these are also pieces meant to be worn everyday. Favorites for me include the sheer caftans, though the lace camisoles and velvet robes are beautiful too.
Felice Art Couture’s in-house sizing runs 1,2,3, fitting letter sizes XS thru XXL (max of a US 16 according to the size chart). Pricing starts around the $200 mark and maxes out around the $2,000 range. These are delicate garments, with dry clean only recommended for many styles (though not all).
What do you think of Felice Art Couture? Do you see anything you would wear? And what are your thoughts on incorporating lace into your daily wardrobe?
