Spotlight on Lise Charmel

Frivole Eté in white - Eprise by Lise Charmel - seen on Lingerie BriefsSometimes it is just better when your cup is only ¾ full. Eprise, the luxurious fuller cup brand by Lise Charmel proves this unequivocally with their ¾ cup balconette bras that anchor all of their luxury collections. Engineered with the famed Lise Charmel fit, this silhouette is uniquely designed for a sophisticated woman who is not afraid to flaunt her curves. The narrow center gorge allows for a deeper plunge on fuller figures creating a sexier neckline. This construction provides much less coverage than a full cup or contour bra.

I am sitting here this freezing January afternoon, intent on writing a blog about the startling beauty that is Lise Charmel bridal lingerie. I imagine a winter affair; ice, blankets, wine, and romance. I think about the stunning film, Dr. Zhivago and the sensual chemistry that Omar sheriff and Julie Christie stirred in their award winning roles as the star-crossed lovers, Yuri and Lara. And even though the story is one of deprivation, the depth of character and the seductive screen play are a study in elegance. What if fate had not interfered and a wedding had taken place? What would Lara have worn beneath her wedding gown? I imagine that it would be from the Exception Charme Collection; a sexy, sophisticated triumph of lace and silk. … Read more

It has been awhile since I compared a museum worthy work of art to a piece of lingerie. But when I saw the Lise Charmel Spring 2018 Fleurs de Jungle Collection at Curve last August, it was an easy make. This lush jungle print evokes Henri Rousseau’s 1910 painting, The Dream.  A masterpiece emblematic of much of Rousseau’s work, the chimerical imagery is a harbinger of surrealism. Complicated color compositions (this painting is reputed to have 22 shades of green) and intriguing juxtapositions create an exotic landscape.
