Each piece is loving handmade, and the brand even offers a Bespoke service. If you can dream it up, Rachel can make it. Not only are her designs unlike anything else on the lingerie market right now, but she has a rather impressive size range. With bands ranging from 28-42 and UK cup sizes A-H. I love that she offers mermaid inspired lingerie and swimwear that is ideal for both core and fullbust sizing. Out of her size range? No problem!

The collection boasts a range of swimwear that is both tailor made and made of the highest performance swimwear fabrics on the market. MariLupa’s swimwear playsuits have both a really playful vintage feel along while fitting in with the other mermaid style pieces in the lingerie collection. The lingerie collection, the first from the brand, offers bras, nipple pasties, knickers, slips, camisoles, slips and chemises. All pairing well with the sea-inspired. Truly of the sea.

The price range for the original collection is in the luxury price point, with most bras costing upwards of £200 and matching knickers around £100. While custom Bespoke pieces begin at the £300 price point. MariLupa also has a smaller collection that fuses beautiful lace panties with optional harnesses that feature a cheeky semi-precious stone at the overt gusset. Very sexy and fun! utilizing the powerful powers of healing and sensuality that semi-precious stones like rose quartz and jade lend to the power of the sacred Yoni. I feel like the collection fits right into MariLupa’s vibe and really adds a playful element to her lingerie, allowing you to wear the harnesses on their own, or layered over lingerie.
