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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
