Sculptresse Lingerie Launches
Panache, a British-based designer of lingerie and swimwear for D+ cup sizes, announces the launch of a new lingerie brand, Sculptresse.
Designed by the fit experts at Panache, Sculptresse is a collection of lingerie for full-figured women, offering everything from everyday basics to fashion-forward lingerie with thoughtful style details. The brand looks to promote a healthy attitude of feeling beautiful while enhancing confidence with lingerie that blends the best of support, comfort and superior fit with feminine, flattering styles.
“After intensive research in the lingerie market, we discovered that the fuller-figured arena was virtually being ignored by the industry. We felt we could fill this void with a beautiful lingerie collection that focuses on both fit and fashion,” said Kay-Lin Richardson, North American Director of Sales for the Panache lingerie brands. “The idea behind Sculptresse is to ensure there are gorgeous lingerie options for women of all sizes so that everyone can feel sexy and confident.”
Sculptresse bra sizes range from 36 – 46” bands and D – J cups with briefs ranging from L – 6XL. Each product within the line has a variety of technical design features to ensure that the wearer feels comfortable and supported without compromising style, such as specially-shaped wings, cushioned hook-and-eyes, padded and adjustable straps, and more.
Inspiration for the debut collection was taken from ballerina-inspired trends, focusing on a light color palette with feminine prints and touches of floral and lace. The ranges within the spring/summer collection include:
Pure – a contemporary “basic” of a non-padded, molded T-shirt bra in black and in nude. This style is intended to fit like a second skin, giving extra coverage, support and a smooth overall finish. The straps are designed to sit closer together to stay in place, comfortably. Pure is available in sizes 36-46, D-H with matching boyshorts and high-waisted briefs.
Pure Lace – a non-padded, moulded lace cup bra with a seamless appearance in core colors of black and nude plus a vibrant hot pink. The superior fit and shape in this range comes from a concealed sling between the two moulded cup layers as well as padded lace-front straps. Pure Lace is available in sizes 36 – 46, D – H with coordinating briefs and high-waisted briefs.
Bellise – a balconette style for a supported, uplifted shape in a gorgeous floral print consisting of shades of red, taupe, black and yellow. This bra is complemented by subtle detailing in the neck-edge trim and scalloped straps. Bellise is available in sizes 36 – 46, D – J with matching briefs and boyshorts.
Rosie – a full cup bra with a stabilizing inner sling for extra support and an enhanced shape to bring the bust forward for a slimming effect. Available in black and blush, Rosie comes in sizes 36 – 46, D – H with coordinating briefs and high-waisted briefs.
Willow – a gorgeous fashion style in a bold and rich berry color with lace print. This contemporary take on a retro style offers a four-piece cup with an outer sling for an uplifted shape and maximum support. Willow is available in sizes 36 – 46, D – HH.
Sculptresse launches in the United States in March 2013 and will be available at retailers across the country, including BareNecessities.com, HerRoom.com, Amazon.com and Intimacy stores as well as MyIntimacy.com. Prices range from $62 for an underwire bra to $28 for a coordinating boyshort.
