When I started to follow lingerie blogs one of the first ones I found was The LIngerie Lesbian who taught me a thing or two about how inspiring, quirky and/or inventive lingerie could be. I was smitten to see some pretty hot designs that weren’t necessarily made out of lace, even though I was a girly girl and would have never said no to a pink or a red bra. There are some awesome indie designers in the luxury category but here comes the twist; they all pretty much make their lingerie in so called straight sizes which means 32-38 A-D. Something I’ll never fit into and IT BUGS ME.
I recently saw Lady GaGa’s Applause music video and my lust for almost androgyneous lingerie choices grew into a massive desire. Seriously, I’d make myself a leather-glove bra if I could but my sewing skills are less than highly developed. But yeah, instead of starting my own leather-lingerie business I would kindly ask all the lingerie designers out there to make something like this for full busts as well. I know a lot of brands doing the fun-and-girly theme (which is perfectly fine and I love it) but there is so much room and demand for these kind of pieces. Even though they might not be the most practical under clothing, I would love something this daring to wear around house of even at a night out as outer wear (a longline bra with leather glove pattern + a high-waisted pants = awesomeness!).
What I’d also like to see is some edgy embellishments like studs and chains. I have already seen some on high street fashion stores but as you may have already guessed they don’t play well with bigger than average boobies. I myself am a big lover of 3D patterns and anything that literally pops out and would die to wear something with a little more showy, eg. a bra with 3D roses.
At the moment I feel like there’s only a couple of brands that offer more androgynous lingerie for fuller busts; Claudette and All Undone Lingerie. They are certainly doing something that’s been missing from the industry forever but I’d still like to see even more daring styles along with the bold colours. I know, it’s a risky move for any company to make something that’s probably gonna have a niche customer base BUT PRETTY PLEASE. It’s probably not the “thing” of Freya, CK, TR or any big full bust company at the moment but I’d love to see someone to take the first step. We have seen this trend conquering the fashion world so I’d suggest lingerie jumps in before the train leaves the station.
