I know this is what you have all been waiting for! The photos from last week’s CILA Gala. Enjoy! Video coverage soon…

It’s been a month since our first catalog started arriving in people’s homes, and we couldn’t be happier with the results. In addition to the styles we knew would be top sellers, such as the new Wacoal Luxe bra that graced our cover, and the popular Body Sculpt bra from Chantelle (*such* a great fit!), here are some other items from our catalog that are selling well.
We wanted to make shopping our catalog fun for fuller busted women. So we filled the book with great DD+ bras, and put a little orange “DD+” icon to really highlight those styles. One highlight was the Aragon balconette bra and thong set from Harlequin, a new brand that understands full busted women want luxury too. Full busted shoppers looking for fun, flirty bras (without having to sacrifice any support!) really took to the Arabella plunge bra from Freya. And we’re getting great feedback from our DD+ customers on Ultra lift strapless bra from Va Bien. The patented boning constructed within the cups keeps the girls up and keeps you looking fabulous all day.
We devoted a half page of our catalog to Pure Style Girlfriends, so we could show off this new designer of fun wardrobe solutions. Plenty of ‘oh, I didn’t know they made that’ styles that are perfect for summer fashions. Such as Stay Put Double Sided Fashion Tape to keep everything in place (pre-cut in a cute dispenser that is small enough to fit in most purses), or the Haute Stuff Underarm Liner, to prevent unsightly stains on your clothes.
No matter what they say, I still haven’t found a black dress friendly deodorant, so the new underarm liners are key to dancing your summer nights away. Pure Style Girlfriends offers seven different wardrobe solutions in all.
Want to look great in white pants this summer? It’s all about the foundation. Such as Spanx High Falutin’ footless styles, perfect for under long and Capri length pants. Or Spanx footless panty hose, to provide shape from your mid-riff to your thighs and rid you of VPL. Love your white shorts or skirt?? Try Commandos CYA Panty. This laser cut seamless panty is virtually invisible underneath clothes. And of course, summer whites evoke simple luxury. Our catalog features the newest collection from Hanro, Cotton Sensation. The combination of the finest fabrics and classic silhouettes makes this group truly irresistible.

Heather is the assistant buyer over at Bare Necessities. She buys shapewear and the luxury & designer bras (like Chantelle, La Perla, etc.), so she knows her lingerie.
The beautiful Andi Muise, canadian model, for Nordstrom.
If anyone knows the labels she’s wearing, let me know! *okay, we have this info now thanks to Sara from Nordstrom, check below!
1: The leopard print set is by Felina. It’s a push-up, and it also comes in a strapless. As you can see, it has a deep plunge, but my goodness! It’s hard like a rock! *lol*
2 and 3: Now in the next two, the black and lavender, are by Wacoal. I haven’t tried the black one (love its non-molded sister, though!), but the lavender is a push-up. When it comes to Wacoal’s push-ups, I have to go down a size. Well, at least, I do.
4: It’s the strapless sensua by Chantelle. Great fit! I love bringing this in fits.
And finally, 5: This is a set by Calvin Klein.
Thank you so much Sara, and thanks to Nordstrom too, obviously!
So, I got a sneak peek of the new Bare Necessities catalog and it is FABULOUS! What other catalog combines your favorite brands (Hanky Panky, Wacoal, Spanx, Chantelle, Cosabella, Freya, Felina, and many more!) all in one convenient location? It’s one stop shopping at its best. A condensed version of its popular and well-stocked online site, the 32-page, full-color catalog features the best of intimate apparel from the practical t-shirt and sports bras to the more sensual balconette and push-up bras. And, of course, shapewear and accessories designed to slim, shape, conceal, and control!
The catalog features a Hanky Panky sleepwear set, exclusive to Bare Necessities, as well as the new luxury collection, Wacoal Luxe, prominently displayed on the catalog’s cover. My favorite part of the catalog (naturally), is the easy-to-identify icon indicating bras designed especially for full busted ladies – through size K (see more in the photos below)! With an online site that stocks over 3,000 styles from 125+ brands, I’m sure choosing what to leave out of the catalog was the most difficult task for this premier retailer.
Want to be the first on your block to have a catalog of your own (they just hit mailboxes on May 14th)? Sign up here to be a part of this groundbreaking, industry redefining endeavor. Happy shopping!
See this is the kind of testing we can all enjoy. The lovely girls over at Entiise Lingerie totally get it: we don’t want to see boring old photos of strapless undergarments supposedly being great support etc… We want proof, and we want it in a funny format like Entiise’s Shout!-test. According to Entiise-owner Veronica “The purpose of the Shout Test is to demonstrate the immovability and overall effectiveness of the undergarment while eliminating any risks and fears of wardrobe mishaps.”
First up, the Felina Strapless Bra:
Next — Felina Strapless Bustier:
They also did a Wacoal Bustier and I’m sure there’s more to come… Again, this is such a great idea — and the (gorgeous!) model seems to agree to. She’s genuinely having fun. 😀 Expect more videos from Entiise Lingerie on TLP in the future! 🙂
