Hot on the heels of other recent product launches Victoria’s Secret has now unveiled a new bra for the holiday season: the Starlet halter.
The name of this latest in the long line of new products from the company likely has more to do with the celestial theme of their new Holiday Collection rather than popular silver screen actresses, although many would kill for the cleavage some of the Angels are sporting these days.
Naturally, the new Starlet halter comes in a variety of colors and materials from seamless dark blue nylon/spandex to a limited edition black version with tie-up corset detailing and a lace panel on the back (bottom right photo, below).
Each of the Victoria Secret’s Starlet bras come padded and with underwire cups for “dramatic lift” as well as self-adjusting straps to help with the fit. The magnetic front closure promises “easy on-and-off” so you won’t have to struggle with the neck strap and a back clasp.
While “halter” does conjure up visions of summer, one can also see why this might be a popular bra come holiday season, when fancy dresses with complicated necklines ensure the need for a myriad number of different bras. Plus, the lift and cleavage gained from a halter style is always something worth celebrating (although one wonders what the new Starlet halter really offers that past Victoria’s Secret halter or convertible bra styles did not).
If you’d like to add the Starlet halter to your wardrobe this holiday season, they run from $45 to $48 and are meant to be paired with the (also) new Lacie panties, which come in four styles (hiphugger, brief, cheeky panty and thong) and cost $10 a pair.
