Test of Time

It is Thanksgiving this week in the United States.  We will celebrate a tradition that commemorates the spirit of survival and congeniality demonstrated by the Pilgrims and the Native Americans at the first Thanksgiving.  The pilgrims  had an invincible work ethic and their perseverance helped to perpetuate the first immigrant settlements in our country.  This holiday is a celebration of family and the appreciation for a quality of life that our country has tried to preserve.   Even though this may not be the best of economic times in America, by examining our history, we can understand a broader picture and acknowledge what we have.   History is a valuable teacher, laying bare precedents set by past experiences and giving us the opportunity to use these lessons to improve the future.  It allows us to hone our skills and accrue knowledge.  Quality is the result of patience, discipline and creativity.  A superior product evolves from having vision and understanding what it takes to achieve it. It requires the wisdom earned with time.

With this in mind, any company in the Lingerie Industry that has endured for over 100 years is worth noting.  Conturelle, the German based international lingerie brand is celebrating its 125th birthday this year.  Founded in 1885 as an atelier originally specializing in corsetry, they have expanded their vision to “be the best lingerie in large cup sizes”.  Bras span a fit range from 30-48 bands and A–I cups.  Engineered with technology developed from years of product development and consumer analysis, these bras are constructed with the expertise of a master draftsman.  Designed specifically for lift and famous for their exquisite Swiss and Austrian embroideries, the Conturelle bras have come a long way in a century of research and development.  The Provence 3-part underwire bra (80505) is a prime example of their renowned fit, available from 32-48, B – H cup.  This bestselling basic style captures the Conturelle character: sensuality, sophistication, craftsmanship and superior comfort.  We are thankful for the history they provide.
