Cake Breaks into the Mainstream Lingerie Market
If you have ever dealt with children with disabilities, you will understand the importance of Mainstreaming. In the world of education, it has been proven to be the x factor in developing social skills. To be part of a group that includes most people prepares students to deal with the world at large. It’s a ‘win win’ situation; fostering tolerance and facilitating self-esteem. I have witnessed this personally as a volunteer at a therapeutic horse center and within my familial scope when confronted with learning issues that label a child and cubbyhole their identity. Mainstreaming is a good thing. It expands horizons and promulgates social skills. It brings a person closer to the whole.
Thus my appreciation for Cake Maternity’s decision to move beyond their established business model into the mainstream lingerie market with their recently launched Sugar Candy brand. Sugar Candy is targeted specifically for the fuller bust woman. The Sugar Candy bra, Cake’s first foray beyond their current niche, is a wirefree, superbly soft and stretchy design for those of us who fit into this category; 20% of the female population globally. This is the bra a larger breasted woman puts on for relief after she comes home. A full busted woman’s comfort level is often compromised by the constraints of wired bras and the weight of their breasts. Constructed with moulded cups and side support panels , it provides projection and separation. In sizes XS-XXL (30-42, F-L cups), this design is not meant as a substitute, but rather a complement to a woman’s lingerie wardrobe. It is a sleep or lounge bra. Stores are already reporting up sales as plus size customers are purchasing this style along with their regular underwire basics; initial reviews are stellar. Cake Lingerie is renowned for its expertise at fitting the needs of larger breasted pregnant and nursing mothers. Sugar Candy crosses accepted boundaries satisfying a much broader market to establish additional equity in the Intimate Apparel industry.
