We've included NK iMODE luxury lingerie in a more than one blog post on The Breast Life. Their gorgeous silk and lace styles are perfect for the full bust woman. But I was curious to learn more about this Canadian brand.
The first thing I wanted to know about NK iMODE was the meaning of their name. Turns, out that the NK stands for the first names of the two founders: Nanette and Kenneth. The "i" stands for the special person who enjoys the comfort and luxury of silk lingerie and “mode” is the expression of their style.
NK iMODE provides women with luxurious lingerie options that offer bust support. For someone in my age group, there is nothing more uncomfortable than my boobs making an unexpected exit from my nightwear. So this feature is great because I can choose what works best for my body. You can shop for items by three levels: maximum, moderate, or natural support.
There's more to know about this Canadian brand. They design a variety of luxury lounge and nightwear styles, including timeless silk pajamas and pretty bralettes. You can read more in my interview below, and view an example of their gorgeous gowns.
