As I mentioned on the TLA Patreon a little bit ago, one of the things I’ve most missed doing this year is lookbook features. Especially in an environment where it seems like the news is constantly depressing, lookbooks are a form of escapism, a retreat into a fantasy world of silk and lace and pretty underthings. I know that I’ve found myself yearning for escapes from reality. And when I […]
When books about the lingerie industry are being written decades from now, Harlow & Fox will be remembered as the brand that paved the way for luxury full bust lingerie. No, they were not the first brand offering lingerie for larger busts at their price point. Other European labels have been making 3-figure bras for awhile. However, Harlow & Fox was the first to emphasize a luxury story as opposed […]
Fact: full bust lingerie (roughly defined as anything above a DD cup) has to be made differently from core-sized lingerie. What works for a C cup probably won’t work for an F cup. However sometimes the full bust lingerie market feels almost entirely made up of 4-part cups, basic embellishments, opaque materials, and absolutely no risks taken. Thankfully, that isn’t only that way! From illusion mesh to nipple cutouts (yes, really), DD+ bra wearers can have just as much fun with their lingerie as their core sized counterparts. Here are my favorite lingerie styles to accommodate a larger bust without the classic, “big bra” look.
For several seasons now, I’ve been enamored of Harlow & Fox’s gorgeous full bust lingerie. Crafted from sumptuous fabrics and exquisite laces, Harlow & Fox Director Leanna Williams pushes the envelope of what lingerie tailored for DD+ cups can be. I talk to so many people who believe lingerie for larger busts has to sacrifice glamour for fit and that any bra beyond a D cup must be plain, boring, and beige. Ms. Williams proves that there is elegant lingerie available in this size range, and I have no problems admitting I wish my bust was a little bit larger so I could take advantage of these brilliant pieces.
About a month or so ago, I found myself working in Manhattan for few weeks. While I love my new digs in California, nothing quite compares to the allure and hustle of New York. I feel invigorated when I’m in Manhattan; the city fills me with inspiration and a sense that anything’s possible. How could one not be inspired with The Metropolitan Museum of Art and The American Ballet Theatre […]
