I had given up hope that someone would create non-boob-bifurcating triangle tops for us, so you can imagine my joy at discovering Two Figs at the Curve lingerie show last week. Dear readers, meet Deb Figge, our new best friend. Her sleepwear is designed to fit women who wear bra cup sizes D through G.
A large-busted former bra-fitter, Deb understands exactly how left out a woman feels who, having just been put into the right bra, can find nothing else in the lingerie store that fits. As she puts it, we want something flattering to wear before bed that won’t cause spillage when we reach for the remote control. The pieces that you see on her 32E model below are what she would have liked for her own wedding.
Deb chose Modal fabric for her line because she finds that it shows curves without highlighting every ripple. She also likes the A-line more than a bias-cut mermaid (I can’t remember her funny quote about why, but it made sense at the time). These pieces, which include custom Swiss lace, are definitely a splurge–they retail between $188-$250. Treat yourself, or tell your sweetie that he can buy one for you from Alla Prima Lingerie in San Francisco. When I know of other outlets that carry this line, I’ll add them in the comments section.
A few more technical details. The chemises, gowns and camisoles (not pictured) come in sizes 1, 2, 3 and 4 to correspond to band sizes 32, 34, 36 and 38, and each size accommodates a D-G cup. The colors are black, indigo and white.
|Doesn’t this back make you swoon? Who said we can’t wear backless?|
|Triangle Chemise. Deb cautions that this style in size 4 could run slightly tight on a 38G, which may be a good reason to try it in the halter style instead.|
|Shelf Chemise. There’s also an empire silhouette that I don’t have a picture of.|
