Between outdated garter belts, uncomfortable underwire and one-too-many pairs of circulation-cutting shapewear, it seems as though our lingerie drawer has too many unmentionables to mention.
We're starting fresh this season with Marie Jo L'Aventure, Belgium's luxury line of saucy, supportive lingerie that encompasses the everyday and the extravagant.
Keeping with the brand's versatile tradition, fellow Belgian designer Veronique Branquinho's new capsule collection of graceful, sophisticated underpinnings consists of fit-like-second-skin bras and ultra-feminine corsets (all made with the softest, most form-flattering microfiber imaginable).
Inspired by Botticelli's Venus, the emerald-and-onyx-colored lingerie exudes a goddess-like seductiveness yet molds perfectly to our bodies--even when worn under a snug tee or a clingy wrap-dress. We're mad for the subtle feminine details in the bikini briefs ($54), the delicate trimmings of the high-waisted garter belt ($99) and the seamless silhouette of the T-shirt bra ($114).
Even if you don't wear them every day, these classic, oh-so-seductive pieces will take you from regular to Rita Hayworth in a snap.
