Bridal Keepsakes ~ Lise Charmel Lingerie

April 26, 2016

Luxury Bridal dress by Sophie on Lingerie Briefs

A few months ago, my husband and I were having drinks on the terrace of a luxury hotel here in Cabo called Esperanza. Not our usual activity, we went, mainly to see the venue. Cabo is well-known for its destination weddings and by coincidence, that evening, there was a marriage ceremony taking place at the resort. It got me thinking about the entire bridal business, the extravagance, the energy exerted, and the level of artistry woven into every aspect of the process. The poolside wedding we witnessed was embraced by a magnificent view of the Sea of Cortez. The bride’s dress was woven with delicate lace and live flowers. The reception, outside on a tiered terrace, overlooked a moon sprayed ocean lit by burning torches. Every detail seemed perfect. Certainly, extravagance comes at a cost. However, for many couples, their wedding is expenditure in a lifelong memory.

Bridal Lingerie by Lise Charmel on Lingerie Briefs

Every season, I revisit the Lise Charmel bridal collections, because frankly, when it comes to pure luxury, there are very few brands whose wedding lingerie reaches this standard of execution. These designs are keepsakes worthy of investment.  I have known women who have framed their Lise Charmel bridal bras for posterity.  Spring 2016’s showstopper is Love Magicienne, a marriage of craft and artistry created by the famed Lise Charmel design studios. Made in Lyon, France in silk charmeuse, Calais laces, elegant embroideries and intricate guipures, each piece is engineered with the renown Lise Charmel fit as deserving of the dress under which it will live. Now with the addition of the Eprise Talent Guipure collection, this luscious bridal lingerie is available in styles fitting 30 -40, C-H. Luxury has a price, but memories are more precious. Combining the two is Lise Charmels gift.

The Traditional Bride ~ Linda Hartman

April 7, 2016

Untitled-1g

When it comes to wedding sleepwear, nothing is quite as elegant as pure silk nightgowns and matching robe sets. Linda Hartman has been satisfying brides with classic silk designs since 1997. Embellished with a touch of lace, these pieces are simple, timeless statements at excellent prices. Wrapped together with Linda’s best-selling Bedroom Eyes eye-mask, no wonder these are a bridal shower favorite.

Bridal Pomp ~ Empreinte Lingerie

March 13, 2016

Untitled-1

There’s nothing like a little pomp and circumstance when executed with elegance and grace. Beautiful details transfer the lavish wedding to a sophisticated affair. Empreinte’s Pompadour collection is a perfect reflection of bridal luxury, replete with embroidery, guipure and tulle. Perfectly detailed for a larger cup (C_G, 30-46) bride, this is lingerie that fits the occasion before, during and after the big day.

The Luscious Bride ~ Harlow & Fox

February 14, 2016

For the past few years I have been watching Harlow & Fox, the elegant British lingerie brand conceived for women DD to G cups. Designed and produced in the UK of sumptuous European fabrics and Leavers laces, this is luxury lingerie. It is an extravagance worthy of any woman, particularly on her wedding day. Recalling the glamour of the 1940’s, the Eleanor and Viola collection in almond and hazel silk is a beautiful gift for the fuller busted bride who does not want to compromise fit or finesse.

The Vintage Wedding ~ Jacalyn Bennett

January 10, 2016

Untitled-1q

For several years I had the privilege of working with the venerable Jacalyn Bennett, lingerie designer for some of the biggest Intimate Apparel brands in the world. I was sale’s director of her personal label and therefore, had access to an extraordinary vintage lingerie collection housed in her Newburyport studios. Renown for her handwork with lace applique, silk and delicate detail, Jacalyn’s creations were then and are now a homage to the art of sewing lingerie. She is a defender extraordinaire of the virtues of silk and the feminine value in lace against the naked body. Any bride would find the gift of a Bennett underpinning in her trousseau, a rare treat.

Even though most brides marry in the spring, holidays, like Christmas, are an enchanting time of the year for wedding festivities. This celebratory season adds a special luster to the party. Did you know that most engagements occur during December? Luxury lingerie always heightens expectation. It’s a time of wonder and hope

BRIDAL BRIEFS

There is an alchemy between the Lingerie and Bridal Industries. Both worlds are devoted to the feminine self. The products revealed in this space are about beauty and self-esteem; their purpose to bring pleasure, passion and gratification to a woman’s life. We believe that feeling special is an important element in creating confidence and a sense of well-being. Bridal Briefs pays homage to that quest.
