While in NYC a couple of months ago for next season’s lingerie market, I had the opportunity to preview the upcoming Spring/Summer 2014 collection from Fantasie, a brand within the Eveden Group. I am a sucker for gorgeous lingerie photography, and I think these campaign images are done exceptionally well. It’s all very English lady of the countryside; “I’ll take my tea and scones in the solarium of my estate, please.” And I adore it. The floral prints are my favorite; they’re kind of vintage-y (wallpapery, even) without being pinup. Other words I’d use to describe this collection are sophisticated and mature (though the latter often has negative connotations for being boring). In so many words, I think this range is perfect for fuller busted women who want something pretty and romantic, but not cute or kitschy. Bras are available in up to K cups, with knickers available in up to size 2XL.
What do you think of Fantasie’s upcoming collection? Any standouts for you? And if you’ve tried this brand before, how does it fit?
