10 of the best bras to deliberately show off

A little bit sexy, a little bit sweet, the peek-a-boo play of the season invites you to put forward your best bra and to deliberately show it off during the hot, hot days. Layered underneath a sheer top, an unbuttoned shirt or a sporty tank, the visible bra gains sophistication this summer when cut in delicate lace, and featuring nothing but interesting cuts.

Lingerie, flowers & feminine beauty: Midnight Garden

Here’s something I’ve observed while walking down the street: carry a bunch of flowers and you’ll receive infinite amounts of attention from male passersby. Why? Aside from making one look desirable, I can only theorise that the beauty of the flowers somehow compounds the beauty of any woman in their vicinity. In carrying a delicate rose, you become a delicate rose. The same is true…

More than just your average stockings

I.D. Sarrieri lingerie: elegance & fetish in the same breath

Rarely does a lingerie label incorporate sculptural folds, ballerina skirts of fine sheer tulle, vintage-style panelled corsets and studded full-cupped bras into their offering. Especially not all at once. I.D Sarrieri are the kind – maybe the only kind – of couture lingerie maker that can pull it off.

What happens when you cross lingerie with mythology? Sexiness happens.

Long before the influence of shows like Spartacus and Game of Thrones there’s been something inherently sexy about mythology. Just think of the Homeric verses, peppered through with alluring Sirens, frisky nymphs and beauties like Helen of Troy. When a lingerie label like Ludique looks to mythological references for their latest bridal campaign, the results are about as sexy as you might expect and then…

Luckily,…

The latest campaign for the “Very Sexy” push-up bra (aren’t they all?) is very sexy indeed, filled with night time city lights in bokeh form, Doutzen Kroes’ Angel waves, and Karlie Kloss’ infuriating combination of rock…
