Style For The Everyday - Iva Grbesic
In June Linea Intima (a go-to-source for luxury lingerie and bra-fitting expertise) invited me to a special Fall/Winter preview for the French lingerie house of Empreinte and their bras specifically created for figures with a C cup or more. Both of these companies believe that lingerie should fit like a glove and flatter curvaceous busts.
I already own a few Empreinte bras and when I received this invitation I was going. Empreinte was founded in 1946 in France and it takes three years to fully train an Empreinte craftsperson. There are several reasons I am a loyal customer – sizes range from 30-42 C-G (depending on style), pretty bras made with beautiful lace and bras that shape and hold the breast beautifully.
At the preview I was gifted the bra of my choosing and I chose the Lily Rose. I was also able to customize my bra with my name and I added a little cameo detail. I chose black because I have the other Empreinte bras in “fashion” colours and needed a new black bra.
The day I was at Linea Intima I also received a bra-fitting – Linea Intima is known for its signature bra-fitting technique. I cannot stress how important it is to get properly fitted and then try on different styles. You may fluctuate sizes depending on the styles you prefer and every style may not be the best for you. Linea Intima has five Ontario locations and once you’ve been fitted you can also shop online.
