Kate Gibson Lingerie, a British company, specializing in handmade bras, knickers and nightgowns for women who traditionally wear AA, A, BB, or B bras, up to a 34B, sources only the finest silks and laces for their exclusive made-to-measure creations. In addition to the quality silks and laces, the company sources limited edition fabric that is used in top fashion houses around the world. The garments are described as beautiful but fragile and are sought after for their luxurious and unique designs.
Kate Gibson Lingerie’s workmanship process is extremely fascinating as a new pattern is fabricated for each customer. Even more interesting is the fact that all the pieces are cut by hand even though some bras use upwards of thirty individual sections. The pieces are then sewn together by an experienced seamstress using a highly precisioned machine. Beads, embroidery and other fancy embellishments are then meticulously sewn on by hand. The last stage in the process is to check the exact measurements of the garment ensuring they are correct for the intended customer and then the garment is given one last quality control check. Once the garment is approved, it is shipped to the customer. The whole detail oriented process from receipt of order to shipping takes as many as eight weeks.
So fastidious with sizing and fit, the company does not even use standard sizes of wires, bands and straps. Each add-on piece is custom fitted to the woman’s size so that when finished, the garment is perfectly made. Even the thickness of the garment relates to the woman’s real body so that she does not encounter any discomfort when wearing the undergarments.
Although, the company sells bras, knickers and nightgowns, it is not possible to order knickers alone. The customer chooses the type of knicker, whether it is bikini, demi-bikini or brief, and then the company makes a set to match. In addition to the everyday petite lingerie sets, they also offer a stunning Bridal Collection.
