I almost forgot because I’ve been so busy! For May I spent two weeks in Korea and Thailand, and fell in love with asian lingerie all over again. I, as imagined, had a difficult time buying lingerie at an E/F cup. With that being said I found a few things I fell in love with and came back with a set. I’ll be making another post about my experience buying lingerie abroad, but on here you will definitely notice a few pieces from asian brands I encourage you to look into!
- Lillie by Dollymilk
My lists are usually out of order, and aside from this piece it is, but this Lillie set is my absolute #1 priority to own at the moment. I’m absolutely enamoured with Lillie and have set my sights on owning it. It’s feeding into my current obsession with baby blue and frills, and I cannot wait to own it (once I eventually pay off my trip, haha).
- Bra by Wacoal Salute
I’ve been lusting after Wacoal pieces after discovering that their Japanese line was so, so beautiful in comparison to the dull and boring American line. I saw many of their pieces while on my trip and they’re somehow even more extravagant in person. The bras are layered with lace, embroidery, crystals, and and tulle. My only problem I could think of with buying from Wacoal (other than the price which I honestly consider fair), is that I don’t think I could ever pick just one.
- Bra by Amphi
Amphi makes beautiful pieces. Far simpler in comparison to Salute, but still more intricate than your average American bra. This totally feeds into my blue addiction I mentioned earlier, and I just love how delicate and sweet it is. Amphi has fewer pieces I would gush over, but still plenty I’d be more than happy to take home. Their designs are a little simpler and less elaborate, but pretty, sweet, and something I would consider an everyday bra for myself .
- Nymphea by Chantal Thomass
I actually avoid talking about this set a little, because I get a little overwhelmed. I have that happen with sets sometimes that I either can’t afford, can’t fit, or are sold out. One of the little perks of being an addict. If you don’t get what I’m saying, it’s that I’m absolutely obsessed with this set and love it more than you can imagine. The lace, the tulle, the cut of the bra and those details make my heart skip a beat or two. I have a heartbreaking feeling this doesn’t come in my size, so I’ve never looked into buying it. One day I’ll take the plunge, hopefully before it’s too late to own…
- Salon by PeachJohn Bra
You might remember Peach John a few years back – the brand went viral after releasing ridiculously cute sailor moon lingerie sets. They continued making extraordinarily sweet pieces, like this one here. I’ve seen this style done many times many different ways by many different ways, and I admit it’s hard to do well. Here, I believe it was beautifully executed. It brings me a 20s feeling, but with a little more support. If this came in my size I would cave and buy it immediately.
- My Size Collection by Dubleve Bra
This brand honestly warms my heart – finding Japanese lingerie available from a AAA-F is HUGE – not to mention they carry band sizes past a 34 (which is surprisingly rare in bras I tend to fall in love with). I had a difficult time choosing just one piece, but this one feels so ethereal and sweet. A love pieces of cute embroidered flowers speckled across a bra, and the feeling of whimsy it gives. Now that I know I can get this in my size, I’m eager to give it a try.
- L’ge Bra
Another brand that fits me, and another brand that temps me. I hope you’re noticing a pattern in the ridiculous beauty and details that are Japanese bras. I wouldn’t say this brand is my favourite, but only in comparison to the others I’ve listed here. It would trump most brands I’m used to seeing by a long shot. There’s a few variations on this bra which I like, as not every style works for everyone as we all know. This bra is available in a few colours, but I can’t say I liked the others as much as I’m not a fan of bright pinks or blues. I do like seeing a brand offer different colours of the same piece for people like me who fear bright colours
- Celia by C’est Jeanne
I have a new obsession with gloves, and I can 100% attribute it to C’est Jeanne. I’ve never seen someone create such magic with gloves. They’re absolutely breath taking, and she has created so many different cuts, lengths, and details. I particularly love this full length mesh ones, created carefully with sneaking vines of flowers up the arms. If you want to see some of her wizardry I suggest checking out her website to see the rest of her pieces.
- Pieces by 13eme Lune
These are some of my favourite pieces of lingerie ever, by one of my favourite brands. Her craftsmanship, details, and unique designs make her one of the most exquisite designers I’ve ever seen. Most of their pieces are harnesses or harness type garments, which generally I’ve grown tired of, but they have somehow managed to constantly create new and innovative designs that keep me captivated.
- Liana Plunge Basque by Studio Pia
Studio Pia has taken the lingerie world by storm. They’re loved for their large embroidery, scrappy details, and interesting designs. This bodysuit in particular is loved by many, including myself, for obvious reasons. It’s been replicated by many but perfected by one. When it comes to Studio Pia designs accept no copies, because the original is a piece you’ll love to cherish forever.
