[New Blog Post!] 5 Patterned Bras For Full Busts That Aren’t Florals
(Shown: Miss Mandalay and Elomi)
Note: All lingerie in this review was purchased by me. For years, people have been telling me I need to try Empreinte. Founded in 1946, this French company is regarded by some as the Rolls Royce of lingerie,offering a distinctive style of bra that is both richly luxurious and wonderfully supportive. You know an Empreinte bra when you see one, and you can’t say that for every lingerie brand.
With a price tag that starts in the three figures, Empreinte’s bras were far outside my budget when I first started blogging. They were also completely at odds with my personal style at the time. But over the last year or so, as I’ve become more and more enamored of the cut-and-sewn look, I found myself giving Empreinte another, much longer glance.
Making this response public (I hope you don’t mind!) because we are constantly asked this question and I’m considering having the answer engraved on my tombstone.
Just want to start by saying that we would LOVE to make every size range in the world ever, but it’s pretty much impossible to do that when you are a tiny brand like us. It’s not that we don’t want to, or we aren’t considering it, it’s just that we can’t afford the financial risk.
However, we ARE trialling out some larger cup sizes in January. We will be running two bras (one open cup) in sizes 32A-32F, 34A-34F and 36B-36DD (that’s 4 new sizes of 32E, 32F, 34E and 34F) and seeing how those sell for us. These are the bras in question:
If they sell well, we can start rolling these sizes out across the coming ranges (we don’t restock our old collections so this would only happen on new styles). I think we’ve already got a sample size 32F in this bra, which is coming in AW14, so that’s promising!
These larger cup sizes will not just be graded up; they have been redesigned to give you the support you need with a stronger mesh back and thicker straps. We have experience with designing and manufacturing larger cup sizes (and larger back sizes) so we are not just taking the easy route ;) Also we will be shooting these on a 32F model so you can see how they fit a larger cup size.
I hope that answers your question, and keep an eye out for those Lily bras that will arrive in January!
If you are a fuller-busted woman who likes Playful Promises, buy these bras!!! At full price.
Brands use their sales figures to determine if it’s financially feasible for them to expand or continue expanding their size range. If no one buys this bras or if they only sell on clearance, that makes it a lot less likely Playful Promises will attempt to expand to their size range in the future. So use your dollars to show that this is something you want.
