This week, I’m finally starting my coverage of the Curve Expo Spring/Summer 2022! If you follow our Instagram account, you’ll already know that it took place a few weeks ago (first in-person show in over a year!), but I’ve been pretty busy with travel and work, so I’m just now getting to the actual writing part.

This week, I’m featuring French brand Aubade. (See our previous articles about Aubade HERE.)

As a reminder, Aubade is a French brand and thus uses the European single-letter sizing scheme. Many of their styles go up to a Euro G cup, and a few stretch it to H. Euro G translates to roughly a UK F, but French brands tend to run deeper in the cup, so it’s not really a one-to-one conversion. As a luxury brand with a slightly more approachable price point, Aubade bras range from about $125 and up.

The S/S22 season is a celebration of spring and of being back together. Here are the G-cup styles coming out in November 2021 – March 2022:

The “Idylle à Giverny” collection is my absolute favorite! That bright cobalt blue just calls to me. The Underwire Half-Cup style seen here comes in 30-38 and B-G cups. To be released in February 2022.
The blue-on-blue embroidery is so pretty!
With S/S22, Aubade introduces its new “Sweetessence” line, an everyday collection made with recycled materials. This is the Spacer Plunge bra, which comes in sizes 30-40 and B-G. There’s also a lightly padded Full-Cup bra that goes up to H cups.
Sweetessence also comes in a juicy “Grenadine” color. Both shades will be available in March 2022.
Next, we have the “Danse des Sens” collection, which is rolling out three colors perfect for springtime. These will all be released in March 2022.
My favorite of the three shades is the pale green “Sauge.” The Comfort Half-Cup bra (seen here) comes in sizes 30-40 and D-G.
Here’s a real-life photo of the Sauge color.
Next, we have “À Fleur de Toi,” which includes three G+ bras! Seen here is the Underwired Half-Cup, which comes in 30-40, B-G. The Molded Half Cup is 30-40, A-G; and the Full-Cup is 30-40, B-H. This black base is called “Rouge Prodigieux,” and there’s also an ivory base with the same embroidery called “Romance.” Delivery November 2021.
Another of my favorites is “Trésor Infini.” The Underwire Half-Cup bra seen here comes in sizes 30-40, B-G. Coming in November 2021.
Trésor Infini’s black with gold lurex embroidery is so stunning!
I also adore the art deco charm and the lacing at the gore.
Finally, check out the Swiss dot mesh on the band. This is serious attention to detail!
Trésor Infini will also come in this gorgeous saturated berry color called “Night Purple.”
The “Softessence” collection will now be offering four (yes, four!) out of five styles in G cups! This is the new Padded Bralette. It actually comes in sizes XS-XL, but the size XL is equivalent to a G cup (not sure about the band, though.) The other (cup-sized) G-cup options include a Molded Half-Cup, Plunge Spacer, and Underwire Half-Cup bra.
Just wanted to show off the back of the Padded Bralette above. The fabric was truly incredibly soft—even the embroidery!
Next up is “Magic Garden.” I really like the combo of lace cups with floral band. This Underwire Half-Cup bra comes in sizes 30-40, B-G. It drops in January 2022.
Back view of “Magic Garden.”
Here is the ivory “Magic Garden” color, called “Candle.”
And the back of the Candle color.
Lastly, we come to “Mélodie d’Eté.” This photo is the body suit, but there are two bras that go up to G-cups—Molded Half-cup and Underwire Half-Cup. Once again, I’m drooling over the embroidery!
