The Révèle Moi Perfect Fit Underwire Bra by Chantelle is the pillar of everyday comfort and support. Sheer mesh panels at the top of the cups helps contain the breast, while creating the look of less bra on the body. The vertical and angled seams on the cups provide maximum lift, while centering the breast issue, creating the look of a longer, thinner waist. Ultra-flat seams lie virtually invisible even under a thin t-shirt and the U-shaped back helps to take weight off your shoulders for the ultimate comfort-fit.
Available in white, black, suede and light pink – up to an H cup. Designed in France.

This is a funny week, the last week in August. It feels as if the whole world is on vacation. However, I think it is much more likely that as women, we are consumed with more mundane matters; fall prep and summer’s last hurrah. Personally, I found myself in a cleansing mode this past week-end. I decided to purge my bra drawer. Yes, I have an entire drawer devoted to bras. Let’s face it, besides the fact that I am large busted, I receive samples. For the record, I don’t really like to do reviews. One person can never determine the viability of a product, particularly a bra. Fit is very personal and every breast shape is different (like a snowflake). One cannot judge true fit from a single perspective. Sales and multiple reviews tell that story. But, when I unearth a style that makes … Read more

Our niche in this Gallery is representing luxury lingerie from designers around the world, and this week we present the Ukrainian brand Apilat. Founded as a wedding dress label in 2012 by sisters Galyna and Lyubov, it has since added bridal lingerie to its offerings in 2015. Consistent with most bridal lingerie designs, their works are sensual, traditional and romantic, but what sets them apart from the mainstream is their precise handwork and use of exceptional fabrics.
As you will see from the images below, Apilat’s use of lace and how it is paired with silk is striking. According to the website’s product descriptions, the designers use Chantilly lace, but their prices are considerably more reasonable compared to other lace-heavy luxury brands like I.D. Sarrieri (not having seen this brand in person or knowing the details of the manufacturing process, it’s … Read more

The summer Lingerie Shows, such as Curve, are replete with swimwear brands. Many of the companies that have established Intimate Apparel businesses are equally adept in swimsuit development. Take, for example Freya, Elomi, Fantasie, Rosa Faia, Lise Charmel, Antigel, Empreinte and Aubade to name a few. Labels well respected for their unique style are developing and launching successful swimwear collections regularly. Skin Lingerie comes to mind. And, as hybrid dressing continues its march into the modern wardrobe, we will see more and more newcomers to this market. At Curve, I saw two, in particular: Tutu from Israel and Karen Mabon from England that inspired me. The messages I gleaned at Curve were not very different than those I saw in Intimates: Bright, bold tropical colors dominated by blues, and pinks, from pale to darks. Prints held court with florals, large and painterly. Graphics, stripes, … Read more
