Part 3 of Curve coming up. This time I’m sharing Claudette, Tutti Rouge, and Passionata.
For the last few seasons, I’ve looked at Claudette’s offerings and my initial response is that the items look insane and useless. But then the reps start showing it off, I look at the model photos, I feel the fabrics…and it all starts to seem so cool and innovative. This year was no exception, with Claudette continuing to introduce more loungewear that could almost double as clubwear or even gymwear in some cases. Claudette is the only big-bust lingerie company I saw embracing the athleisure trend.
“The Cat’s Pajamas” is a whole new collection of sleepwear made of super soft rayon modal mixed with fishnet. It looks super comfortable. Check it out:
Moving on to more lingerie-esque items…
Finally, some bras!
As usual, Tutti Rouge is back with great colors and a new signature print. They also told me they’re working on lowering their price points by sourcing better fabrics and working with their factories to keep expenses down.
I was sad to hear the Passionata rep tell us that they’ve been adapting their aesthetic for American audiences since entering the market. They said European markets like big details and American shoppers like things more simple without any show-through with clothing. It really shows in their latest offerings, with none of the bright colors that drew me to the brand several years ago.
However, they did introduce one item that was absolutely genius—a medium impact sports bra with tons of adjustments! It comes in sizes Small (about a 34B) through XL (about 34G). Check this beauty out:
