"The most prolific women in fashion are not 'of the moment.' They dare to be different and have distinctive style that does not change from season to season, it only evolves." Dita Von Teese has had a big impact on my views about style, and she continues to be a significant inspiration. She always stands out amongst celebrities, and she has taught me and so many other ladies that we too can proudly embrace our love for glamour, even when the rest of the world sometimes embraces a sloppy, baggy, unkept, "natural" aesthetic. Because of her, I actually feel so free being one of the select few ladies in a crowd who adores being put together and done up, with a nod to the classics - the way women used to love glamour.
This is why a collaboration with Dita Von Teese's Von Follies lingerie is such an honor for me. I was completely enchanted by the sexy yet sleek look of Madame X, and absolutely delighted to find that it's actually also one of the most comfortable bras I own! There is no underwire and yet still an enormous amount of support, even for a larger busted lady like me. She recently released a wider range of sizes, and as a curvy femme I'm simply in love with every aspect of the Madame X set. Besides it's sexy design and comfortable construction, I also love it's classic shape! There's a hint to the bullet bra with partial foam-lined cups that almost naturally extend out in a subtle structured cone form. The entire design seems to combine vintage glamour with a distinctive, unique blend. The Madame X set is my new favorite, and I highly recommend it. You can find it at Bare Necessities, Bloomingdales, and ASOS.
