Several weeks ago, Hourglassy was contacted by a luxury lingerie brand I’d never heard of before, Edge o’ Beyond. I was excited to learn that they offer bras up to UK H cups. However, I was at first very confused by their sizing system, which comes in numbers 1 – 10, with each number representing a series of sister sizes. How could one bra fit four different bands??
Turns out, the bands are adjustable too! Once I got a good eyeful of the designs in the lookbook, I was actually really intrigued and felt I had to share this brand with Hourglassy readers.
Now, I haven’t tried these bras myself, so I can’t speak to the fit, but I think the product is so innovative on paper that I wanted to write about it anyway. (I’m receiving no compensation for doing so, by the way!)
As for back story, Edge o’ Beyond (EOB) is a black-owned, British luxury lingerie brand that aims to be size-inclusive and to account for women’s changing bodies due to weight fluctuations, the menstrual cycle, etc. The models include women of varying skin tones, shapes, even a pregnant model—and there’s minimal Photoshopping, keeping freckles, stretch marks, tattoos, etc. intact. I really appreciate this photography choice. When it comes to spending money on a luxury product, this adds a level of trust that makes me feel more comfortable making a purchase.
EOB is designed in London and created in Wales using embroidery and gold-plated hardware crafted in France. As well, they offer a collection of body jewelry designed to be worn with the lingerie. The jewelry is surprisingly affordable (ranging from £25 to £100), and is something I would consider incorporating into my everyday wear, rather than just under my clothes.
The lingerie itself, by the way, is beautiful! The colors, embroideries, and hardware are incredibly pretty and feminine. Here are some of my favorites from the Spring/Summer 2021 collection (available now!):
There are so many more styles from this season and seasons past on the EOB website that are incredibly pretty, edgy, and sexy. It’s fun to browse even if you’re not in the market for some luxury lingerie!
