Ode to the Tulip ~ Curvy Couture Lingerie
When my family was very young, we purchased a house in Long Beach, NY which my husband and I always referred to as a “Ozzie and Harriet house” For those of you who are not familiar with the 1952-66 TV sitcom or the era that it defined, this phrase was, to the two of us, a metaphor for a boring, predictable and relatively narrow minded perspective of the American culture. It was, most definitely not my style. However, the house was a steal. It was constructed with the finest materials, but its state of the art infrastructure had been cosmetically crucified inside and out. Its great bones and the creative potential were a worthy challenge and a great investment in the future.
The very first thing we did was to plant 1500 assorted species of tulip bulbs up the center pathway and across the perimeter of the entire yard in order to upend the symmetry of this sturdy but banal structure with an explosion of color. The framework of our house went from functional to functional and sexy.
This image is a perfect metaphor for Curvy Couture’s Tulip Push-up Bra. On its own, since its first bloom in 2015, it has become the brand’s number one selling bra, proliferating in colors, season by season. This success story has seeded the development and launch of an entire Tulip collection, anchored by 4 separate styles. Covering a large wardrobe of needs each interpretation is a beautiful ode to femininity and balance. Constructed with Curvy Couture’s time honored engineering excellence for large breasted women, they fit sizes 34-44 and C-H cups. The lift, support and comfort are never compromised but merely camouflaged by the beauty of the design.
