Founded in 1993 by Laurie Dunlap, Blue Canoe, a Californian organic yoga and intimate apparel company, has recently added a few new pieces to its line. To the Sheer Lace Lingerie group of boy shorts, crossover bra, camisole and panty, comes the new slip in pretty colours of naked, black, natural and aegean. A comfy looking undergarment, this slip could easily double as a nightie for sleeping. Made with very light organic cotton and spandex, it is trimmed around the neckline and hem with accent coloured lace.
The newest item added to the Just Cotton line is the one hundred percent cotton tap pants with lace trim. The whole collection is made from organic cotton and does not contain any spandex or latex (the bra is the exception with a latex band). Slightly ribbed for added detailing and comfort, the total group includes a gathered bra, lace rib tank top, string bikini, high cut panty, and full cut panty. Fresh, bright colours in russet, black, bluebell, natural, sky and violet, this is a cute mix and match set.
While the Shape Lingerie collection of bras does not have any new pieces, the fabrication is worth mentioning as the innovative designs provide proper support without the use of invasive hooks, wires and binding straps, all of which are very uncomfortable during a workout session. In several styles and a pretty array of colours, each bra is suited to a specific look or type of clothing worn. And the Jane bra in regular and plus cup sizes is ideal for nursing mothers.
Blue Canoe is full of simple designs that cater to comfort and an easy-going sense of style. Pieces from any of the yoga, sportswear or lingerie easily complement one another to create fun sets. And everything is made in the USA.
