Naked Women’s Collection

Naked Womens Naked Women's Luxury Modal Bralette

“I think that six out of seven nights a week a woman is going to reach for Naked.” – Carole Hochman, Naked.

by Michelle Broomes, Lingerie Journal Editor.

How many of us start to undo zippers, unbutton our shirts and hop around at the front door trying to get our hosiery off, all whilst still trying to turn the key in the front door? It’s as if we have an innate need to be naked as soon as opportunity allows. Unfortunately, for many us getting down to bare skin takes a bit more planning than usually estimated and might be more trouble than it’s worth if unappreciated by our present company.

So, the next best thing is to cloth ourselves in something that feels like second skin. This is what New-York based lifestyle brand Naked offers — the chance to feel as close to naked as possible. The brand specializes in intimates, loungewear and sleepwear that are designed to feel so heavenly against the wearer’s flesh that it’s like wearing nothing at all. Comfort fabrics like Micromodal®, cotton/spandex and Pima cotton are employed to bring the best in luxurious necessities.

the Naked Team

Launched in 2010 by an ambitious and community-minded sportsman turned entrepreneur, Joel Primus, Naked was initially a small Canadian label developed to provide men with high quality underwear products. But in 2015, the company cleverly introduced a women’s range resulting from a formidable partnership with guru loungewear designer, Carole Hochman, who is known for designing her own lines as well as working on collections with the likes of icons that include Ralph Lauren, Donna Karan, Oscar De La Renta and Christian Dior. Hochman, now CEO, Creative Director and Chairwoman at Naked, brought a wealth of design and market knowledge of women’s intimates that has transformed the company into a unisex utopia for undies and other daily essentials.

Naked was keen to show off its current offerings of the woman’s range at Curve earlier this year with the vision of making this segment of the business an established contender in the intimates market with its assortment of bralettes, briefs, sleep and lounge pieces designed for the lifestyle of the modern woman.

“The inspiration for the women’s Naked collection clearly came from the men’s underwear collection,” CEO and designer Carole Hochman told TLJ. “In many ways I found that so exciting because I feel that there’s a lot less separation in how men and women want to dress these days.”

Hochman feels that the key underpinning to any collection, be it for men or women is the element of ease.

“Everybody wants to be comfortable, so that’s a given,” she stated knowingly

The women’s collection is therefore built with similar comfort fabric elements as the men’s: soft and luxurious Micromodal, 91:9 cotton/spandex and 360 degree stretch to secure the perfect fit.

“I think minimalism is very sexy,” – Carole Hochman.

The essence of minimalism is also weaved into the collection to give a sense of effortlessness of wear.
“I think women love simple clothing – uncomplicated – clothing that just feels good next to the skin,” Hochman stated knowingly, as she has had a few decades of experience in the industry.

“Not only did we do the [women’s] underwear but we chose to do some very simple sleepwear pieces – the pyjama everybody loves, but we’ve even cleaned it up more – made it more minimal,” Hochman explained. “We didn’t have the piping like every pyjama has piping. It has a minimal notch colour. It’s all about just putting something on that feels so refreshing at the end of the day.”

Naked Womens Luxury Modal Bralette

And that sensuous, “close to nude” feeling the wearer experiences when they slip into something from the Naked collection comes from the quality of fabrications from which the collection is built. Hochman admitted that these fabrics are an expensive investment but that is what buyers fell in love with at the Curve show, knowing that they would be obtaining a collection that was worth the financial output. The secret is in the combination of the fit, feel and cut.

“The buyers love our fabric,” she informed. “They love that the fabrics are luxurious. They really found the [women’s] collection to be modern.”

One of Naked’s major endeavours is to show that clean cut basics can indeed be on trend and an important layer in modern woman’s wardrobe.

“I think there’s a lot of very sexy product in the market – a lot of lace in the market – and not a lot of minimal product that really speaks to comfort and sexiness at the same time. I think minimalism is very sexy,” Hochman reasoned.

Naked Womens Everyday Pima Cotton Bralette

“Built with the feel of indulgence, Naked Women’s collection is prepared from premium textiles that are cut and shaped to perfection.”

She further suggested that retailers who specialize in sexy lingerie need to find a way to help women adequately incorporate both the frilly and the fundamental into their wardrobe so that they enjoy the benefit of both. An unfussed brand like Naked could be, therefore, successfully balanced with more striking boudoir collections.

“I’ve always believed in a lingerie wardrobe,” Hochman explained. “I think that six out of seven nights a week a woman is going to reach for Naked. The very sexy, complicated, more decorated lingerie is special – for special occasions.”

When it came to designing the women’s collection, it appears that this was no mean feat. Although she has worked on many significant projects over the years and with many desirable names, premier designer Carole Hochman revealed that it took time to get the comfort, the fit and the detailing just right across the board as no two women’s bodies are identical.

“I’m not a big believer in one size fits all,” she stated. “So I’ve spent a long time working with [fit] models.” And she believes firmly that she has achieved the right outcome.

“My underwear is luxury underwear [and] is the best fitting underwear I’ve ever worn.”

Naked Womens Collection

Her design philosophy is simple and forthright and Hochman has premised her Naked designs on this: “I think you need to design with limitations. You can’t just design anything that comes into your mind.”

Naked collections are, therefore, targeted to specific gaps and niches in the market.

“Our [design] process is really based on what we feel the market needs and what we feel Naked should be accountable for,” Hochman explained. “We have defined what we think is the right space in the market. It’s first of all [about] affordable luxury for [the] price points [and] it’s minimalist, in terms of [being] uncomplicated. We’re very much into covering the basics of a wardrobe.”

Built with the feel of indulgence, Naked Women’s collection is prepared from premium textiles that are cut and shaped to perfection. The design team is particularly proud of the outcome using their chosen Micromodal which is designed to drape the body in all the right places, without being unpleasantly clingy.

“Our [women’s] Micromodal was definitely a derivative of our men’s Micromodal. Ours is at the high end,” Hochman revealed. “It feels like luxury when you wear it. It’s one of the best fabrics I’ve ever worked with.”

Using a high cotton to spandex ratio (91:9) has also proven ideal in shaping the women’s range, creating a body-loving material that’s obedient to a woman’s curvature.

Naked Womens

“Naked specializes in intimates, loungewear and sleepwear that are designed to feel so heavenly against the wearer’s flesh that it’s like wearing nothing at all.”

“You don’t feel it when it’s on,” Hochman assures. “It’s very lightweight. It works with you.”

And despite the traditional view that pure cotton is always ideal for underwear, Hochman has a slightly more adjusted view.

“Spandex makes the fabric awesome,” she assured.

Although colour palettes are not as highly prioritized as the fit of the collections, the women’s collection benefits from the soft touch of heather and taupe and a pop of colour in the form of a punchy red. But the collections rest on the foundation of classic colourways of black, beige and white. Spring will see the addition of a girly pale pink and a feminine ceramic blue. Overall though, Hochman is determined that fit of the garments should be more calming than the colourways as comfort is the main pillar of Naked collections.

Naked Logo

The re-engineering of the Naked brand has seen a revamp of the company logo to reflect the unisex characteristic of the brand. Hochman found the original logo quite solid and masculine, of course being originally a man’s brand, but it has now been transformed to appear more appealing to both sexes and is now what she calls “more architecturally modern”. The disappearing or “naked e” in the logo speaks simply towards what the brand stands for – peeled back layers and the freedom to be uninhibited.

By extension, the product packaging is also intended to be user friendly. Its visual is subtle and unintimidating – not overtly sexy and provocative as one might expect from a brand with a name like “Naked”. For the brand, it’s not about conjuring up the seductiveness of nakedness but really tapping into the emotional side of it – the freedom to feel comfortable with yourself in your own skin, so the brand images are not intended to be inherently sensual.

So far, the success of the women’s collection is speaking for itself. The cotton collection is proving quite popular along with the pyjamas in the luxury Micromodal being a front runner. The brand has already seen reorders for its Pima cotton and Micromodal underwear although being fairly new additions to the collection. CEO and designer Hochman informed that Naked now has plans to extend the Pima collection for both sexes as part of brand expansion.

Naked Womens Luxury Modal Bralette

But it doesn’t stop there when you are on a mission to make a brand a household name. Plans are already in the pipeline to update the women’s range with touches of lace and to introduce a whole new line called Naked Sheer Mesh Intimate group made up of mesh garments with the right balance of opacity. If previous collections are anything to go by, these additions are sure to be a hit with brand fans.

But no matter what’s added to the listing women can take pleasure in knowing that they are getting quality products with high performance and within their reach.

“There’s not a lot of people going after, what I call, affordable luxury today,” reasoned CEO and Chief Creative Officer of Naked, Carole Hochman. “People are either going after very low end, fast fashion or [the] very expensive. I think that we have found the right product at the right price that women are responding to.”

Naked’s long-term mission is to extend it reaches as far into the intimates market as possible and having a dual sex collection is the vehicle which the team believes will do this.

Naked Womens Collection

“There’s not a lot of [intimates] brands that cover both men and women together,” Hochman pointed out and this puts Naked in pole position to dominate this field.

Hochman reckons that this lack of dual branding is possibly a result of retailers not having the intuition as to how to merchandize them both together. Women’s lingerie can be an avenue through which men can be introduced to the world of quality underwear and retailers and brands, especially in brick and mortar shops, need to know how to merge the two so that they maximize their market potential. Her conviction in this concept is so strong that Hochman visualizes Naked offering support in the form of donating or consigning samples to retailers to who want to attempt the cohabitation of Naked’s men’s and women’s underwear under one roof with the possibility of replenishment if successful.

For now though the Naked team is happy to be a trendsetter in bringing both men and women as close to blissful, unencumbered nakedness as possible, persuading them to experience intimates like they never have before.

Van De Velde Spotlight

MarieJo Avero Orchid

by Michelle Broomes, Lingerie Journal Editor

The Belgian name of Van De Velde is synonymous with the concept of ‘Lingerie Styling’ as well as some of the most esteemed brand names in lingerie on the market – namely Prima Donna, Marie Jo and Spanish brand, Andres Sarda.

Van De Velde operates on the principle that retailing lingerie rests on styling the individual woman to look and feel her best beautiful and the company’s pillar philosophy is ‘shaping the bodies and mind of women’ using lovely lingerie as the medium.

Rigby and Peller hangers

To date, Van De Velde works with thousands of specialty establishments worldwide and has its own retail channels, achieving a multi-million euro turnover as it applies the ethos of making women feel sensational through high quality lingerie fashion.

Evelyn Verstraeten, Global PR Manager at Van De Velde tells TLJ about the Van De Velde way of business and how the company uses it products to undergird companies, taking business to a new level.

Interview with Evelyn Verstraeten, Global PR Manager at Van De Velde

Prima Donna By Night Malva Ash

Above: Prima Donna.

Van De Velde has been a leader in the lingerie industry for decades, so what’s been the formula of the company’s success so far?

Consistent strategy in focusing on quality: As a company we have never compromised quality despite increasing costs and despite the pressure from the market to lower our retail prices. We firmly believe that trading-up is a healthy business model for the multi-brand specialty store. Offering the consumer a quality product in combination with excellent service creates the best advertising any brand or store can hope for: = word of mouth = loyal customers = customers who buy more and more often. Both Van De Velde and our customers/retailers win.

Andres Sarda Milano

Research & Development: Van De Velde invests considerable resources in R&D. Our own in-house R&D department has the mission to outperform and be pioneers in technicality for fabrics, production machines, production processes,

Last but not least, we are a customer focused company. We love our customers/ stores and we love our PrimaDonna/ Marie-Jo/ Andres-Sarda consumers. As a company we listen and look into every feedback and remark that comes our way and we act upon it. That interaction and mutual trust and respect from us to the field and the field towards us creates an inspiring and positive energy and synergy.

Andres Sarda

Above: Andres Sarda.

‘Shaping The Bodies and Mind of Women’ – that’s the Van De Velde mission. How is this philosophy played out in what Van De Velde seeks to offer women through lingerie products?

Our variety in brands – the many collections within brands to choose from (basic [to] fashion); different body styles per collection (to perfectly fit a specific breast shape) – it all adds up to giving women not only a good shape but also to having more confidence. A good bra not only lifts the breasts and chest, [and] is beneficial to the back but it also lifts a woman’s spirit, self-esteem, confidence and feeling of comfort.

Kindly walk us through the Van De Velde family of brands. What kind of customer/client is attracted to these brands?

Marie Jo – Created for Living and Loving

MarieJo LAventure Azuma
Marie Jo revolutionised the lingerie industry in 1981 with a trail-blazing Belgian signature: the label combines discreet luxury with novel designs and caters to self-assured women who want to make a seductive but refined statement.

Our new ad campaign and marketing images as of 2016 clearly show Marie-Jo as a life style brand and does no longer link lingerie only to the bedroom or romantic scenery. Marie-Jo is part of women in all aspects of her day and life and this is clearly shown as well in the photoshoots which were taken outside.

PrimaDonna – Ode to Curves

PrimaDonna Delight in Riviera Blue
Since 1965, PrimaDonna has always been about women embracing life, full of confidence, not afraid to show off their femininity. PrimaDonna underlines that message now with the Ode to Curves campaign.

PrimaDonna has – for more than 150 years now – kept the same goal: designing perfect-fitting luxury lingerie for naturally curved women. The collections marry the best support in larger cup sizes (all the way up to J-cup) with elegant designs. 93% of women who wear PrimaDonna would recommend it to a friend. Since 2013 we have also added PrimaDonna Swim.

Andres Sarda – Designed in Barcelona

Andres Sarda Berlin
Since 1962 Andres Sarda has been creating luxury lingerie and swimwear in the atmosphere of a cosmopolitan and avant-garde city as is Barcelona. The refined and surprising collection combines sophisticated taste with craftsmanship and innovation. Andres Sarda lingerie has a unique identity.

The designer swimwear of Andres Sarda is highly elegant and attractive and meets the needs of the contemporary woman. Exclusive prints on fabrics of the highest quality show the feminine forms to their best advantage.

Rigby and Peller store front

Above: Rigby and Peller store front.

The Van De Velde name is associated with over 5000 companies worldwide. What do you look for in companies that you feel can aptly represent the Van De Velde brand and business ethos?

Passion for women and focus on wanting to shape their body and mind because they also [like Van De Velde] firmly believe this philosophy [combined] with premium product is the way to win market share in the lingerie industry and to grow the business.

The specialty boutique and Van De Velde work as true partners. We as a manufacturer need the specialty boutique/ retailer and its team to transmit our passion and expertise to the consumer; the specialty boutique needs us to have a niche offering with many opportunities to sell a variety of products in the fitting room. The consumer leaves the store happy and will return for more. The whole circle helps the retailer to differentiate him/herself from department stores and/or lower price point chains in the industry.

MarieJo Axelle in black

Above: Marie Jo.

Since 2002 Van De Velde has its own and operated retail shops? What’s this experience been like for Van De Velde?

Van De Velde entered the retail business because – in Europe as in the US – we noticed a lack of multi brand premium lingerie boutiques in many geographical areas. The potential consumers were / are there but too often had/ have no access to stores with fit expertise and a good variety in size-runs or collections. As we entered into the world of retail, we discovered many aspects of the business which we – as a manufacturer – had never anticipated or expected. We were not always aware of the day-to-day challenges a retailer encounters or the demands, frustrations, complaints that were expressed by women in the fitting room. Over time we noticed how extremely valuable this direct feedback from the fitting room was to learn how our collections were perceived, where we missed out on opportunities, etc., also how valuable it was to be able to test out certain innovations in our own stores [and] fine-tune them before bringing them to the market, etc.

Today Rigby & Peller [the Van De Velde operation] is based in the UK, US, China and Germany and currently counts for 44 stores.

PrimaDonna Sunrise in Powder Rose

Above: PrimaDonna.

Given the success of the Van De Velde name particularly in partnering with and undergirding other businesses – what can you offer to retailers seeking to attract new customers, increase profitability and take their business to a new level?

Complementary lingerie and swimwear brands with consistent sizing and body shapes within each brand. If a customer is for example a PrimaDonna size 34D, you can bring at once in the fitting room a skin tone bra for every day, a lace bra, and a swimsuit. Same size – same fit – same quality. The variety in our offering creates more and better sales opportunity.

PrimaDonna

Above: PrimaDonna.

Van de Velde takes risk in stocking back-order possibilities for fashion series. This allows stores to carefully buy into series with an initial size-run and when they see a series is very successful, they can re-order in season and can count on a quick refill delivery. This allows stores to spread their risk – fill-in on series that do extremely well – play safe on series that might have a little less demand. Less risks [means] more rentability at the end of the season.

Customer Service : B2B platform 24/7 to check in real-time product availability per size; place orders, consult invoices, open order, track shipments [all] next to a top team of customer service agents who can assist on-line or via phone. Very quick and consistent shipping (free of charge). Refill orders will take less than a week to be delivered in store although we still ship everything out of Belgium.

MarieJo Avero

Above: Marie Jo.

What’s next for Van De Velde? Are there any new partnerships, innovations or products in the pipeline that you can share with us?

Our R&D department is constantly working on new projects but is now fully testing a 3D mirror for the fitting room.

In France we have launched the home party channel in response to the declining number of multi-brand specialty stores. We do this in collaboration with existing customers/stores in order to help them increase and diversify their revenue. It’s a win-win for all parties involved.

In Germany and Belgium we are testing an E-com service offered by Van De Velde to our wholesale partners by giving them access to an e-com platform (branded as the retailer but the back-office and stock is managed by Van De Velde).

Vanilla Night & Day AW16/17 collection

Vanilla Night & Day AW16/17 collection

“Classic collection is an expression of what every woman expects from night underwear.” – Kasia Pastwa

by Michelle Broomes, Lingerie Journal Editor

Beautiful Polish Brand Vanilla Night & Day is known for stunning night and lounge wear that teases the element of sleep owing to such exquisite design. The collections are as prolific as they are captivating and, as an ode to the ensuing cold season, the brand has an AW16/17 range called Frozen Dreams.

With dreamy notions of cosy nights by the warmth of the fire, Frozen Dreams romanticizes what can be at times, a dreary season, through the use of luxury laces, flattering, feminine cuts and rich colourways balanced with the softer touch of pastels.

Ever inspired by the hand of nature, the brand has called on the unique facets of the autumnal and wintry seasons to conjure up the multilayer tribute to the colder season that is Frozen Dreams.

“When we start to work on the collection we have peak of summer. Therefore moving to the winter days becomes extremely magical and sensual,” says brand designer Kasia Pastwa. “I do not suffer a physical chill but in my mind I have only beautiful images of winter landscapes.”

Despite the melancholic nature of this period, Kasia defines this bleak procession as a “journey into the land of winter sleep, which can be called a real romance” and colours and prints are the vehicle into Kasia’s winter wonderland.

Vanilla Night & Day AW16/17 collection

Its contrast colourway and speckled theme of the Snowflake collection represent that cold bounty from the winter sky whilst the Camelia range so charmingly speaks to the bittersweet shedding of leaves that have lost their lustre of warmer times, a sure sign of the colder clime. The Winter collection is a delightful diametric story of the complementary relationship between light and dark and Bianca is for the snow queen with its dominant white laced garments.

Other inspired ranges in the Frozen Dreams collection are Frost, Misty, Alaska, Holly and Crystal each adding a layer of mystical sentiment to the overall collection.

Frozen Dreams’ palette ranges from the deeper robust hues like garnet, black, claret, ruby, cacao, and petrol blue to the comforting gentleness of pastel blue, powder pink, peach and cream to balance the aura of awakeness and reverie throughout the darkened days.
Yet, in spite of the sentimental value of Frozen Dreams, Kasia remains aware that passion and practicality must go hand-in-hand in any collection, especially one that’s meant to keep out the cold.

Vanilla Night & Day AW16/17 collection

“Autumn/Winter weather means that we are looking for heat – both physical and [that] for the state of mind” explains Kasia. “That’s why we try to take the physical and mental aspect into account in our underwear regardless of the season. It is very important to us that customers feel not only comfortable in [wearing the pieces] but as well as [in its] aesthetic comfort.”

High quality knits and viscose lend cosiness and warmth (or “heat”) to superbly feminine pyjamas, chemises, night dresses and robes in which the wearer can envelope and cocoon herself – each piece teeming with dramatic appeal. The designer herself, refers to this enchanting collection as “delicate and sensual” – an understated truth.

Complementing the Frozen Dreams collection this autumn/winter season is the Classic Line Collection – an entourage of luxury lace and viscose garments, enhanced with clever cutwork and inserts.

“Classic collection is an expression of what every woman expects from night underwear. This collection is co-created by our customers: the most popular models, which got the highest grades, gets into the Collection under the loving care of our design team,” informs designer Kasia Pastwa.

The classic range is filled with lovely pieces that are ideal for lazy days on the sofa with a bestseller as well more sumptuous cuts and colourways for late evening romantic encounters. As it is a compilation of well-loved pieces from Vanilla Night & Day, brand fans will benefit from its well-rounded assortment of flattering shapes that never seem to go out of style.

Vanilla Night & Day AW16/17 collection

“Timeless models, produced on the basis of careful execution [and] attention to details can become a main element of the wardrobe of every woman,” says Kasia of why her classic pieces will always have a place in women’s lingerie drawers. Teamed with Frozen Dreams, the possibilities for this delectable duo will be exponential during the days of longing and reminiscence.

“Everyone knows the big red lips! It’s such an iconic symbol of the Rocky Horror Picture Show. How cool to have it on something so sexy and provocative, like lingerie!” – Kat, Rocky Horror fan.

by Kim “Kimmay” Caldwell

After 45 years and counting, The Rocky Horror Picture Show is reborn as a two-hour television event. Airing on Fox on October 20th, 2016, it’s being re-imagined with an acclaimed new cast. To celebrate this exciting event, Hanky Panky is releasing a special series of items inspired by the film.

Part of the Hanky Panky After Midnight® collection, this capsule collection consists of ten provocative styles paying homage to the cult classic, and sure to delight Rocky Horror fans everywhere.

the “TOUCH-A TOUCH ME” Group

The “TOUCH-A TOUCH ME” group showcases a lip and fishnet print on polyester-spandex jersey. The focus of the graphic is a red-lipped mouth, an iconic emblem of The Rocky Horror Picture Show. Along with the lips, fishnets play a vital role in the look of the movie. And the name of the group is a nod to one of songs in the film, sung by the character, Janet Weiss, originally played by Susan Sarandon in the 1975 film, and reprised by actress Victoria Justice in the upcoming release.

“Give yourself over to absolute pleasure…” – Dr. Frank-N-Furter, The Rocky Horror Picture Show.

In addition to the “Touch-a Touch Me” group, the collection also features the “UNTAMED THING” group, a roundup of some of Hanky Panky’s best selling panties in their signature lace with a special Rocky Horror touch. It’s another nod to a popular song, this one sung by the Dr. Frank N Furter character, whom was originally played by actor, Tim Curry. The role is being reprised by Laverne Cox, known best for her portrayal of Sophia Burset on Orange is the New Black, and Curry returns, this time playing the role of The Criminologist, who narrates the show. The designs of the “Untamed Thing” group include a colorful rhinestone appliqué of the iconic lips displayed on black lace in a low rise thong, original thong, boyshort, and crotchless low rise thing silhouette. The items retail from $23 to $39 each.

Fans are sure to love the collection! Kat, 30, a Rocky Horror fan, has gone to several of the midnight showings of the 1975 film and is looking forward to the new release in October. She was lucky enough to get a sneak peek of the upcoming Hanky Panky collaboration and said: “Everyone knows the big red lips! It’s such an iconic symbol of the Rocky Horror Picture Show. How cool to have it on something so sexy and provocative, like lingerie!”

Mixing well-loved favorites, like lingerie brand Hanky Panky, and cult classic movie Rocky Horror, makes perfect sense. The provocative, playful, flirtatious, and down-right sexy tone of the show is very much in line with the After Midnight collection from Hanky Panky.

Known for its more daring and naughty silhouettes like crotchless panties and key-hole bralettes, Rocky Horror and After Midnight are the perfect paring for the “sweet transvestites from Transexual, Transylvania”, and long-time Hanky Panky fans alike. “I can always enjoy another black lace panty – and this one has that extra special, playful touch because of the sparkly lips!” adds Kat.

Cosabella Bras Evolve

Cosabella Bras Evolve Evolved Bra, a beautiful and comfortable range (t-shirt and push up) from Cosabella

How do you make the most comfortable bra?

First, you listen to your customers, take note of what they want and need from a bra and start designing. Then, you source high-quality components from around the world and wait for samples to arrive.

That’s what Cosabella’s design team, headed by Kristin Bear, did for over a year to update the brand’s Evolution Bra.

close up of Cosabella's Evolved Bra

“It was a slow crawl to find all the things that we wanted,” explains Kristin. “One month, we would get in a wire. Three months later, straps came in and we would have to choose from the best.”

The result? The updated Evolved Bra — a beautiful and comfortable range (t-shirt and push up) from Cosabella that features six key improvements:

The Evolved Bra

Evolved Bra, a beautiful and comfortable range (t-shirt and push up) from Cosabella

• Super soft, newly developed Italian Lace that lays so flat it’s practically invisible.

• Updated wires and wire casing for better support and a softer feel.

• New developed padded hook-and-eye closures.

• Soft foam t-shirt cups for subtle shaping.

• Peached Lining inside the bra cup.

• and Thin brushed finish elastics inside straps for extra comfort.

close up of Cosabella's Evolved Bra

“The cups have a very smooth outside and the inside are very plush — they have a peached feeling and are super soft, molding to the body.” – Kristin Bear

The Lingerie Journal received two samples: the Push-Up Bra in Nude Rose and a T-Shirt Bra in black. Of the six improvements, two of the bra updates stand out immediately — the new Italian Lace and updated hardware.

The gorgeous lace draws your eye towards the bra’s wings and feature a hand-designed pattern unique to the bra that Kristin helped create with the brand’s Italian Lace supplier.

The hardware — the front closures, clasps, slides — are clean, modern and in the case of the bra in Nude Rose, comes in a beautiful Rose Gold color that’s a joy to look at. The black bra features hardware in a stunning gun metal shade.

The changes stem from Cosabella’s constant self reflection and feedback from their retail and wholesale customers.

“The straps have a microfiber backing making them super soft and the front have this beautiful cording detail.” – Kristin Bear.

“All of these improvements were needed and missing in our line,” said Kristin. “Also, I felt that as a woman, we needed something better, we need something more comfortable and we just went after it.”

close up of Cosabella's Evolved Bra

Cosabella fans can expect these improvements to find their way into many other of the brand’s ranges by the end of 2017. Retailers interested in the collection can order the new bras now with an expected delivery for mid January.

“We hope all these changes mean as much to our customers as they do to us,” said Kristin. “We worked as hard as we could to build the most comfortable and beautiful bra for them.”

Curvy Couture Tulip Strappy Lace Bra Review

Curvy Couture Tulip Strappy Lace Bra Review

Photos by Karen French Photography @karenfrenchphotography
Make-up by @jenniferchristinebeauty.

Curvy Couture’s latest lingerie creation – the Tulip Lace Strappy Lace Push Up and Smooth Push Up Bra is meant to inspire and excite the senses.

TLJ’s Michelle Broomes recently wrote, “Adorned with scalloped lace overlay, gorgeous sheer neckline and designed with over bust cage strap accents, Tulip Strappy Lace is perfect as an evening/boudoir option with its sensual outlook.”

The new bra styles are welcome spin offs from their popular Tulip collection. and one of the first to experience this new set first-hand was Pin Me Up author, Jenny Rieu. A few weeks ago, Curvy Couture sent her the bras in both colors and today, we talk to Jenny about her experience with this Curvy Couture creation:

Curvy Couture

What were your first thoughts upon seeing the Tulip Strappy Set?

When I first discovered the two new Tulip Strappy sets, I thought to myself I want them both. I love a good caged bra because you can wear it as outerwear and let it peek through a sheer blouse or a low cut top. I couldn’t really choose between the two sets because one is more classic, while the second set is more unique and includes that gorgeous Maroon color. My second favorite thing in both sets, are the high waist bottoms in a solid color. As a full figure woman who loves all things retro, I am in love with both sets as they are such classics and they remind me of my pin up roots.

Curvy Couture Tulip Strappy Lace Bra Review

What kind of vibe do you think Curvy Couture was going for in this set? How do you think they achieved it?

To be honest I think these two designs are some of the sexiest ever created by Curvy Couture Intimates. I feel like they achieve sexiness, comfort and support all at once. I have modeled and collaborated with a variety of lingerie brands over the course of the past two years and I can assure you that both sets are perfection. In fact I can’t stop wearing them and I am currently trying to find ways to include them in some of my outfits.

I recently teamed up with Curvy Couture Intimates to do a body positive giveaway and I felt confident wearing both sets and introducing them to my audience. I would never endorse a product that I don’t believe in 100 percent. The Tulip Strappy lace sets really compliment my hourglass figure and they are a must have.

Curvy Couture Tulip Strappy Lace Bra Review

Curvy Couture wants this collection to bring out the inner vixen in all of it’s customers. How did these pieces do that for you?

The fact that I want to show them in some of my outfits indicate that I feel great about myself and the way I look in them. They are show pieces that bring out my femininity and I am in love with the strappy details on both sets. I feel like most full bust women are often given the option of full coverage and I never understood that. Women should be proud of their bodies and celebrate them by wearing sexy lingerie. Both sets will definitely bring out your inner retro Femme Fatale, as they are so 1950s inspired. To me they evoke Betty Page or Dita Von Teese because of the way they are designed. They also have a modern feel with the straps which I think is a style that came out much later. But regardless they really make you feel sexy and in control of your own femininity. I would add that gone are the days when a woman would have to buy lingerie simply to please her man. Curvy Couture knows that women want to celebrate their own womanhood and these two sets definitely help achieve that.

Curvy Couture Tulip Strappy Lace Bra Review

How did Tulip Strappy Set inspire the photoshoot? What ideas did it bubble up in you and your photographer?

So as previously mentioned, I teamed up with Curvy Couture Intimates and offered a giveaway to both of our followers for a chance to win either set. I also teamed up with Karen French Photography to offer a full on photoshoot with make-up, hair and styling by me. My goal is simply to share what I have been living for the past few years as a model. I have learnt to love myself after going through some serious body changes due to fibroids. I had two options after that. Feel bad about it or simply embrace my new curves. Both CC and Karen French Photography aim to make women feel beautiful about themselves and celebrate their bodies no matter what size. So all of these elements inspired me throughout my photoshoot with Karen. She had a variety of decors and I got my hair and makeup done on set. I felt confident, I had fun and I felt inspired by all the great pieces that I modeled that day. Karen had certain poses that she wanted me to do and I also brought my own stamp to the shoot with some of my signature poses.

Curvy Couture Tulip Strappy Lace Bra Review

What’s the fit like in this set?

Both sets feel comfortable and extremely supportive which is always a fabulous feeling.

How does the fit and design make you feel?

The fit and the design make me feel like I am not wearing lingerie, as it really feels like second skin.

Curvy Couture Tulip Lace Strappy Push Up Bra

What’s the one stand-out detail from this set?

The fact that the bottoms are in a solid color instead of an expected matchy matchy dual color that exist in the bra is definitely what caught my eye. I also love the strappy detail and the high waist bottoms, which are kind of a signature for the brand I feel.

What are the textures like on this set?

The lingerie sets are made of Nylon, Spandex and lace. The whole set feels really soft on the skin and I love that the straps feel like they are floating on my skin.
