I have just added a lovely lace padded push up bra (and matching items) to my collection. It comes from an Italian brand called Lormar. This is the most padded bra in the collection, and although it is lace it is smooth enough to wear under a sheer dress without showing through.
Beautiful Bridal Basques and Low Back Bustiers for your Wedding Day
There are lots of bridal basques available on the market, so I have done a lot of research to try and find something really special. These basques are not from the "mainstream" lingerie brands and come from smaller more specialist bridal companies.
Choosing your bridal basques
For most brides I would recommend a "Torsolette" style basque. These are slightly longer in the body. I feel these are more comfortable, and the shaping continues all the way down to the hips. This gives a lovely silhouette all the way down your torso, and will give you the shape, feel, and look you are trying to achieve.
The only exceptions to this recommendation are if you are looking for a low backed basque to go with a low backed wedding dress or you need a larger cup size (more than a UK E cup).
For low backed dresses try a Low Back Basque or a bridal bustier
In this case I would recommend one of my shorter, low backed basques. They do not come down over your hips, but they do have a far lower back than the torsolettes (please see the images of each one as I have included rear photos as well). I also sell a couple of extremely low back bustiers - there are not many products on the market that provide this level of support with such an amazingly low back.
For those needing a Larger Back or Cup Size ?
The torsolettes only go up to a UK E cup. To cater for the bride with a larger bust I have selected some basques from Panache and Silhouette. These are specially designed to provide great shape and support, but still look great. Size wise they go all the way up to a 38H. Another great option I have had a lot of success with is the Panache Evie bra combined with an Underbust Corset - a little more expensive - but a fantastic combination.
Getting the size of your basque right
These basques "fit true", so just order your normal size, and it will give you a lovely shape. Don't order a back size too small, thinking it will pull you in a bit more - as it will just be too small for you. If you are in doubt, try my size calculator (there is a link on the left hand side of each page) or just give me a call on the number at the top of each page.
