The color of the sky and sea, both calming and energizing, blue symbolizes trust, confidence, intelligence and truth. This season, blue is everywhere to be found and lingerie is no exception.
Here are few of our favorite shades, patterns and silhouettes in blue lingerie foundations from this spring’s collections:
Marie Jo L’Aventure – Ingmar Contour Plunge, B-F cups
Teal diamond-patterned tulle, layered over a sea green molded cup creates Ingmar’s striking effect. Sleek and modern, this bra features ribbon edging, a center bow and thinner straps. With a deep plunging neckline, round shape and smooth finish, Ingmar is a perfect match for figur-hugging T-Shirts and dresses.
Simone Pérèle – Opera, B-G cups
Designed and made in France, Simone Pérèle’s Opera line is a tour de force for lovers of lace! This style features stretch Chantilly lace and tulle panels for full yet gentle support, accented by beautiful Guipure embellishments along the strap and center gore. The dramatic periwinkle shade is irresistible, and flattering on blondes, brunettes and redheads. Opera is also available in a bodysuit, perfect for underneath blouses and dresses…or on its own for a special occasion.
Prima Donna – Eden Luxury Full Cup, D-H cups
With its tulle cup in a smoky, navy blue, “luxurious” describes how you will feel in this elegant bra. Contrasting pink and white embroidered flowers fan outward to create a flattering scalloped edge along the top of the cup, and continue along the straps. Despite Eden’s gauzy transparency, the three-part cup and discreet seams offer the support of a full coverage bra with the skin-baring style of a demi cup. Perfect for lower and square necklines, Eden is a fantastic option under sundresses, blouses and medium gauge knits.
Empreinte – Melody Smooth Full Cup, C-G cups
This semi-sheer, smooth cup option has long been a favorite for many. This season, the band and straps are an icy pale blue satin finish, complemented by a geometric floral print cup in several shades of blues and greens. A balance of beauty and practicality, the Chantilly lace disappears underneath clothing and creates a beautiful, rounded shape. Dreamy!
So instead of reaching for your typical black bra, consider one of these beautiful and colorful alternatives. Smooth or seamed … demi cup, full cup or plunge … blonde, brunette or redhead, there IS a blue bra out there for YOU!
