Lingerie from a Fairy Tale: Spotlight on Buttress and Snatch

Diamond Swarovski Set

Buttress & Snatch is a British brand famous for two things: 1) their vintage-inspired and completely theatrical burlesque style and 2) their commitment to making all their lingerie by hand in the UK. Founded in 1999 by Rachel Kenyon, Buttress & Snatch counts celebrities like Madonna, Christina Aguilera and Beth Ditto among its clients. Almost all the pieces have frills or ruffles or crystals or roses because this is lingerie that is meant to be seen.

Unfortunately, the company doesn't deviate much from the a traditional size range. Bras are 32B to 36D with a few E cups sprinkled here and there, and panties are S, M, & L. And this is definitely a high-end, luxury brand with the bras shown here starting around £79.00 or ~$120.00. I will say that for a handmade British label, I did expect more sizes to be available, but hopefully the company has plans to expand. (Editors Note: As of 2016, Buttress and Snatch produces lingerie in up to J cup and a size 22 UK!) My favorite bra is the Ballerina Tulle in black. I adore how it's just fancy enough.

What do you think of Buttress and Snatch? Have you heard of this label before?

    I’ve known about Buttress and Snatch for several years now – I saw one of their sets on the burlesque edition of Faking It, and went on a mission to find out where it was from! I was disappointed to find how limited the sizes were though – no matter how beautiful they are I can’t justify spending that sort of money on something that doesn’t really fit me:-(

    So obsessed with them! I can only hope to own a set or five one day..

  4. Sweets says:

    Oh my god the Victoria Regina set is SO up my alley. Wow. I had never heard of them before, but I may have just found my new dream lingerie.

  5. KathTea says:

    Too too TOO many favourites! Ended up pinning so so many on my board. But if I had to choose one :'( the Black Maria it is. It’s kind of quirky :D

  6. MopRocks says:

    Personally I liked the simplicity of the Georgiana piece, but I might be biased in favor of lingerie that can be worn under something as well as on it’s own. Crushing the little roses on the ballet sets would be an absolute crime.

  7. Karolina says:

    Discovered them a while back and I’m still in love! Totally need that Victoria Regina set in my life.

  8. Agnes Lakatos says:

    I saw your lingerie and its absolutly beautiful. I was wondering what sizes do they come in and is it available in Australia?
