We're featuring Else Lingerie on the blog today because I recently visited their new flagship store, here in Los Angeles. They don't just design bras and knickers; they offer a complete brand experience that reflects a timeless aesthetic, including home textiles and candles.
I'm a big fan but never tried on any of their styles. But I thought that the delicate look of their pieces might not hold up my older 34D boobs. It turns out I was wrong and left their boutique with new items for my intimate apparel wardrobe. They may be my new everyday favorite to wear.
What first attracted to me to the brand was their gorgeous, intricate graphic lace bodysuits and bralettes. But they also make loungewear, swimwear, and supportive underwire bras---up to an F cup! So bigger busted sisters don't have to miss out.
Else is made in Istanbul, and recently introduced a line using eco-friendly lace. As a member of the Fashion Revolution, they educate women in the art of lingerie making, as well. You'll also find their commitment to sustainable products in their environmentally friendly packaging.
Here's a quick look at only a few of the pieces from their many collections. Check out what I bought for myself, and let me know if you'd wear Else, in the comments below.

It was a tough decision, but I left with the Petunia Full Cup set and bikini brief (in Indigo), plus the Fiona plunge bra and matching half slip, for myself. Next, I like to purchase some of their lounge or swimwear.

Else did a great job in creating a friendly, accessible boutique where it's easy to see and try on their entire collection. My iPhone pictures don't do it justice. So be sure to visit them the next time you're in Los Angeles.
