At the Lingerie Americas show, I was introduced to the German line, Conturelle. Conturelle is unique in that A-H cups are accommodated by their sophisticated and seductive line. Specializing in meeting fit with fashion, Conturelle utilizes quality materials to ensure that every woman can achieve that exquisite and elegant shape she desires.
Conturelle features two sets of ranges – the never out of stock basics and the fashion collections. Some of my favorites include the Provence, Arabesque, Maroc, and Reflexion ranges.
Provence features femininity at its finest. This range, made of elastic tulle, is noted for its delicate embroidery on the bras as well as on the straps. Well-constructed, as well as beautiful, the bras create a beautiful silhouette in white, black, vanilla, or magnolia mauve. Complete the look with a thong, mini briefs, or bikini briefs.
Arabesque provides a sophisticated and classy look and is marked by its exquisite embroidery. I particularly love the look of the molded bra which is adorned with guipure embroidery on the center of the bra as well as the straps! Divine! The colors for this range include black, white, vanilla, and the incredibly rich, indigo. A matching thong, mini brief, or bikini brief is also available.
Maroc is unique in its own right. Made of sheer, elastic tulle, this range stands out for its classic diamond pattern. In black, white, vanilla, and apricot, the cleavage and underwired bras are edged in lovely eyelet embroidery. A flawless look is complete with a matching thong, mini brief, or maxi brief.
Reflexion is extraordinary! Indulge in lavish satin accented by graphic embroidery on the cups as well as the straps. Feel confident in opulent vanilla, black, Havana (a metallic shade), and amethyst. Finish the look with your choice of the thong, mini briefs, bikini, briefs, or control briefs.
So what can you buy and where can you buy it? Currently, the Harmonie, Provence, Arabesque, Perfection, and Maroc ranges are available in stores. Reflexion, along with the fashion ranges, will be available this fall. Those of you in Europe will probably have an easier time finding Conturelle in shops near you. For those of you in the U.S., I’ll keep you posted as I find stockists. However, online, try Bits of Lace or Sylene. Keep us posted in our forums if you find this great brand at a store near you!
