Ok onto today’s topic which is all about wonderful colours as well. I want to tell you about one of my present objects of lust: Claudette. As you all may know I’m not too shy to paint my lips red or purple neither I’m stuck with lingerie that is “only” pretty. A girl needs sometimes lingerie that makes her feel like a total superwoman.
As with Fräulein Annie, I came across Claudette on Invest In Your Chest (a link to a review on Dessous range) where Cheryl introduced the fairly new brand to us lingerie enthusiastics. I fell completely in love with the look; their colour combos were amazing when the designs were pure and simple. Their brand has been a true success story even if they are turning just two next November (haha, I’m turning 21 in Nov and still feel like a child..). Here are the wonderful Claudette ranges I would love to try on one day!
Dessous is Claudette’s most popular line that carries whopping 18 colourways at the moment with five more to be stocked soon and eight to launch next spring! This style is a almost completely see-through which is rare for a bra going up to G cup. The bra is made with three-piece cup construction. There is also a new padded convertible Dessous coming up this fall (above in Black Grape) which will make a great addition to the line.
2COP’s colour combo picks: Cyber Yellow/Navy, Peony/Limeaid, Sucre, Navy, Chinchilla/Lollipop, Tomato Soup (the orange one above, last three picks are from AW13 collection so they are not sold anywhere yet).
I feel like Paramour is kind of a big sister to the Dessous range. It covers more and has a little bit more glamorous feeling to it with the satin panel on the lower part of the bra. This range does not have that many colour combos yet but it’s a good choice for women who don’t dare to bare all (believe me, there are LOTS of them).
2COP’s pick: Seafoam
En Dentelle is a half cup bra with a beautiful lace on jewel tone satin. This shape is quite different from Dessous and Paramour and the style is definitely a bit more romantic and classic with a sexy edge.
2COP’s pick: Neon Pink/Black
Sophia is also a half cup bra but in a simple everyday manner. It is said to be great under t-shirts while offering a round shape and smooth cups with two-piece cup construction. Also the materials are divine and suit women with more sensitive skin. What I personally love about this range are the knickers. They spice up the otherwise sporty style perfectly! Claudette team is also re-colouring this range for SS14, can’t wait!
2COP’s pick: Papaya/Navy
New lines for AW13: Ouvert and FishnetOuvert is definitely something else: it’s a half-cup bra with buttons on the front that ACTUALLY OPEN. This might not be your everyday bra under a white t-shirt but it’s a perfect option for a night out to show a glimpse of you underwear. The debuting style in Snake Print is a definite confidence booster and a choice of every fashion-forward lingerista.
Fishnet is another new style to wow us with its sheer sexiness. There will be two options when it comes to cup construction: a half-cup and a plunge. The colour combos are a bit too traditional for me with their shades of pink and aqua but we’ll see what Claudette will come up with for spring season if this style is continued. However the suspender panties look amazing and would be a great pair with even a plain black bra.
In addition Claudette has a range called Cool Cotton which is their basic line consisting of neutral colours and vertical seaming.
All the styles are available in 28D-G, 30, 32, 34A-G, 36,38B-G which is pretty amazing for such a new brand! Claudette is sold at HerRoom, Asos and Faire Frou Frou which all ship internationally though the size range varies from store to store. Thanks for Claudette’s Bok for providing all the useful information! Have a relaxing sunday ya’ll, xx
