Back to Curve Expo! This week, we feature luxury French brand Empreinte. I’ve never tried Empreinte lingerie, but Darlene raves about it, and I absolutely love the fit and styling of the Empreinte “Star” bikini that I reviewed last fall and then wore several times this past spring and summer.
For spring/summer 2022, Empreinte describes the collection as “about a delicate femininity with a bohemian vibe.” As always, you’ll find high-quality yet soft and delicate lace, this time in shades of “delicate and cheerful pinks, as well as delightful blues to brighten the essential Natural, Licorice, and Indigo colorways.”
Empreinte is a French brand and thus uses single-letter sizing. All bras go up to at least a G cup, and some offer up to H, which in theory is approximately a UK FF. However, French brands are known for featuring deeper cups than UK brands and the difference from cup to cup is not a one-to-one conversion with UK sizes, so my French 30G Star bikini top fits my UK 30G boobs just fine. Until you familiarize yourself with Empreinte’s fit, I’d suggest trying a couple different sizes in your first order.
Anyhow, here are the new styles of lingerie coming out for spring/summer 2022:
Moving on to swimwear, this collection “heralds the exhilaration of a new-found sweetness in life and pays tribute to nature’s rejuvenating and energizing qualities.” In short, you’ve got bright colors and optimistic prints, as always presented through Empreinte’s signature eye for elegance. There are a few more sets than what I’m sharing here, but I thought the following ones are the standouts:
