While undeniably dramatic in color, this demi bra is a wonder for the more average-sized bust-line. Enhanced with a tiny bit of subtle lace detailing, this t-shirt bra is perfect for figure- conscious cuts.
Sleekly smooth, comfortable microfiber lovingly supports your figure with full-cup modesty and coverage. Featuring an underwire that shapes without chafing, this bra is destined to be a consistent favorite for its subtlety and its sweetly feminine detailing.
Available in an array of color, this padded bra enhances your natural cleavage while disappearing seamlessly underneath whatever you choose to wear with it, from button-down blouses to cotton t-shirts.

Even the most perfect of figures become more striking with the right support. This bodysuit encourages a sleek silhouette while still comfortably (and sexily) keeping everything perfectly in place.
Functional and sensual? This bodysuit has it all, from a full-coverage bra to incredible tummy support. Enhanced with a flirty sheer polka-dot motif, this standout bodysuit is versatile enough to go from morning ‘til night.
Sometimes a little bit of extra support in the right place is all that’s needed. Picked out with accents of hand-embroidered lace, these shaping panties give your bottom a lift while smoothing your tummy. And, because they’re constructed of microfiber, panty lines are nowhere to be seen.

It looks like 2017 will have a bit of a rebellious streak. Harkening back to the Age of Excess, these re-imagined off-the-shoulder cuts are as flattering as they are edgy. Asymmetrical necklines pose unique problems, but the right support can make this kind of flair accessible to just about everyone.
When an outfit demands support but the neckline thwarts your best efforts, strapless is the way to go. Unbelievably smooth satin cups help to support and minimize your bust, all reinforced with a wide silicone band to banish any worry of slippage. It can also be worn with straps, showcasing a great figure with great practicality, no matter what daring fashion choice you make.
With a quirky nod to 80s style itself, the subtle checkerboard pattern on this strapless bra is as fashionable as the designs you wear over it. Microfiber lined cups and coated underwire update a slightly traditional look into something with as much spice as sugar to its design.
Ample cleavage is no problem for this Chantilly-lace detailed strapless bra. Comfortable in plush and breathable microfiber, it makes even the most daring off-the-shoulder styles accessible all the way up to a 42 E.
Not all foundations need to be subtle and understated. In this case, the dramatic push-up power of this bra is paired with a bit of sassy flash. A black-on-black sequined edging makes this strapless little number pop, and it is a prime candidate to flash an enticing little detailing through your clothes.

Eye-catching assets will be on display with plunging necklines in the new year. Whether deeply V-shaped or softly draped necklines, this year is all about classic bombshell curves and daring cuts. Keeping up with the trend are wickedly wonderful plunge bras, doing double duty as serious breast support under your clothes. Plunge bras offer the opportunity to reveal a bit of enticing skin without showing off the bra itself.
Complete with bows, scalloped edging, and embroidery, this satin bra is nearly invisible underneath your clothing. It is also richly crafted with feminine details. With smoothly finished edges, this bra can take on the deepest, most daring necklines without showing a hint of its alluring detail.
Sometimes less is more, and a seemingly subtle design conceals a multitude of delightful details. Combining the low-slung profile of a plunge bra with the minimal coverage of a demi bra, this piece may look demure at first glance, but it really makes a subtle impression.
Sweet, sheer, and simple, this bra is detailed with gorgeous feathery lace trim and plumped with perfectly placed padding. This bra is an example of restrained elegance at its best. An excellent warm weather choice, it lifts and supports without an excess of heavy fabric.
With multi-positional straps, this plunge bra flaunts an unabashedly feminine power. Softly sculpting your figure while still maintaining a seamless finish, this is a bra to enhance even the humblest V-necked t-shirt with jaw-dropping cleavage.
A Brilliant Start: Color Trends for 2017
Fashion is in constant motion, and perhaps the most changing aspect is color itself. As 2017 swiftly approaches, the icy depths of winter reveal a brilliant new palette: one that influences all aspects of fashion, inspiring clothes, shoes, accessories, and lingerie.
Winter fashions use colors from the extremes of the rainbow, from soft and subtle to intensely saturated with fresh, bright shades. The new year is a colorfully brave new world, both inside and out.
At First Blush
Taking a page from the romantic ballet-inspired fashions waiting in the wings, lingerie in soft nude and blush tones will influence lingerie trends. Colors ranging from beige or tan to warm peachy hues will be popular in elegant and universally flattering pieces. Utilitarian but stylish, these nudes are anything but bland and old fashioned, especially when embellished with sweet lacy details.
Sweetly subtle patterns infuse the Kaela demi bra and boyshort with understated elegance designed to showcases a woman’s natural beauty. Sheer blush, nude, and brown color options make this particular line a gorgeous choice no matter what skin tone you have. The smooth, neatly tailored fit in this set also helps to enhance natural curves.

Delicately detailed Chantilly lace allows skin to glow through this charming bra and panty set. Beautifully sewn and so comfortable, this set is one that you’ll want to wear every day, but it serves up enough élan to serve as lingerie for the most formal of events—even as bridal wear.
Intensity and Flair
Richly saturated lingerie colors bring an eye-opening trend that contrasts the stark winter whiteness of colder months.

A universally flattering shade of blue makes this set stand out from typical lingerie. Comfortable, dainty, and easy on the eye, it’s a foundation garment base that will elevate the spirits and make an impression.
The trending colors for 2017 are not just limited to intense color and dramatic necklines. A sweetly feminine influence will be debuting this winter, bringing a balancing move of a mid-range of colors and textures. A bit more saturated than pastels, these colors are energizing and cheerful. Expect playful clementines, corals, turquoises, and teals to appear in a sorbet-hued abundance.
Like the swoon-inducing bright splash of tropical oceans, this set in intense blue fits with undeniable flair. With carefully considered engineering, the demi-bra not only fits like a dream, it supports beautifully, even under bulky sweaters.

Bright and citrusy, these colors wake up the palette during colder months. Like a secret weapon against the winter blues, bright and cheerful lingerie can help restore the spirit while awaiting spring.
