Adore Intimates SS18 Style Review
See Adore Intimates at CURVENEWYORK this July 2018!
“Adore Intimates makes dramatic fashion pieces to fulfill your greatest lingerie fantasy…”
L ace, please, is all I could say when Adore Intimates offered me a chance to review two of their newest offerings for the Spring/Summer season. Bad puns aside, I was delighted to see what this new brand had to offer in comparison to its uber-successful parent brand, Allure Lingerie.
Created to celebrate Allure Lingerie’s 25th anniversary, The Lingerie Journal got its first peek at Adore Intimates this April in a previous piece. Allure Lingerie’s ambitious debut line features bodysuits, corselettes, panties, dresses and accessories. Featuring seven named collections, Adore Intimates’ marketing director, Peline Kurtdarcan, explains, “These decadent lingerie pieces enhance your every look and mood, making you look breathtakingly sexy and fabulous”.
I was asked to review two very different looks from the SS18 collection, the Freya Wild Lace Chaps, panty and bra style and the Tia Heavenly Bodysuit featuring dreamy sheer sleeves. As discussed in our previous piece, the names of the collection are important in understanding the rich artistry of Adore Intimates and the moods they wish to convey with their intimates.
Freya is fearless. Inspired by the goddess of love in Norse Mythology, this collection is a stand-out for the season. My favorite of the two styles I reviewed, this intricate look is made up of three separate pieces, the sheer mesh and strappy triangle cup bralette, a matching panty with a flirty keyhole opening in the back and the matching high-waist lace chaps.
Although, I can be a little put-off by when lingerie gets too intricate to put on, I was relieved to find that everything was easy to wear and made in general sizing so I didn’t have to search for three different items in three different sizes. Oof, what a nightmare! I measure a 36” bust, 26” waist and a 37.5” hips and found that the small in this style fit perfectly.
“Inspired by the goddess of love in Norse Mythology, this collection is a stand-out for the season.”
The lace nicely stretched when necessary and did not bag when it was not. The panties are also very well designed and ultra-flattering with its high-waist length. The panties also feature an opaque lace-lined panel in the front for modesty. The bra for this style can accommodate many different bra sizes as it has a vertical seam that allows for more room in the cup. Perfect for girls with a petite frame and bigger cup-size! I LOVE pieces that can be used for multiple purposes. If you feel that you don’t need the full editorial look of all three pieces together, just the bra and panties work well for a more everyday look.
“I do love the design of this garment, there’s something very ‘Lady Gaga’ about the Tia Heavenly bodysuit.”
Tia is a seductive head-turner. This sexy black bodysuit features a plunging V-neckline, a high choker neck, on-trend ‘cold shoulder’ panels, long, draping mesh sleeves, a sheer bodice featuring a tie back closure and an open back.
I do love the design of this garment, there’s something very ‘Lady Gaga’ about the
Tia Heavenly bodysuit. I could totally see her paring this lingerie look with some platform boots and lighting up the stage with her radiant confidence. This style is also multipurpose and can be worn together or separately for a different look. The entirety of Adore Intimates SS18 line is black in color, making every piece easy enough to mix and match within the collection!
The Tia Heavenly Bodysuit and Freya Wild Bra and Chaps Set are perfect pieces for those wishing to create a more dramatic look with their lingerie. As Kurtdarcan explains, “these decadent lingerie pieces enhance your every look and mood, making you look breathtakingly sexy and fabulous…” These pieces are very easy to shop as they are generally-sized and utilize great nylon fabrics that stretch when necessary and fit the body in the most flattering way possible. Adore Intimates makes dramatic fashion pieces to fulfill your greatest lingerie fantasy and I look forward to seeing what creations they will bring into the AW18 season!
