What's so special about French lingerie brand Simone Pérèle?
Maybe it's the approach they take to their design and manufacturing. Simone Pérèle believes there are certain rules women should follow when it comes to lingerie. It's not those finger-wagging guidelines about how to find the right size or fit, either. They believe the secret to feeling fabulous in one's skin --- or bra -- is about unapologetic self-acceptance. It's about attitude.
There are many reasons why so many non-French fashion brands choose faux-French names. There's a certain cachet (another French word) associated with the culture. It reflects a history of innovative design, quality materials, and above all -- attention to detail. All of it in service to the beauty and splendor of the fashionable, feminine form.
Simone Pérèle does not disappoint on any of these fronts. I admit, I was a huge fan of the brand long before they gifted me a bra and panty set last year. It's in my blood to love all things, French. My mother was born in Paris, and our family lived in Europe when I was a child.
I was, at first, disappointed to find they sent me an everyday T-shirt bra. But leave it to Simone Pérèle to reinvent this boring basic. They make theirs from lightweight, breathable 3D spacer fabric and add delicate Leavers lace to the straps and band. It's a bra you forget you're wearing until you remember how gorgeous it looks underneath it all.
The brand offers consumers a surprising range of sizes, styles, and fabrics. You'll find super sexy demi-bras, as well as gorgeous plunge, push-up, and full cup styles -- many available in up to a G cup. You don't want to miss their bridal and shapewear selections, either. There's something for everyone who believes foundations should lift one's soul, along with her breasts.
Here are a few examples from their latest collections:
Revelation 3D Demi Full Cup Bra Available in 3 colors Fits Bands 30-40, Cups D-G
