Up to a K from Parfait!

Full-cup ladies rejoice! Another fantastic brand has stepped up to the plate and increased their cup sizes!

If you’ve been keeping an eye on fashion week you’re probably as giddy as a school girl over all these adorable new lines. I’m in love with the girly lace and pretty floral patterns emerging from fashion week and I’ve got more material to blog about than I could possibly cover in a year. Not only that, but lingerie companies are hearing our pleas and have responded with sexier styles in larger cup sizes.

Just a few days ago I discovered Parfait for the first time and was ogling the AW13 line and was drooling all over my keyboard. I was utterly dismayed when I found out that they only carried bras up to a G cup. Being a HH I often find myself sized out of brands I like so, as usual, I just saved a few photos for a later review and kept browsing the fashion show photos.

If you’re not familiar with Parfait, they are part of the Affinitas brand family. It’s an American company that has over 30 stocklists and growing! They recently moved their UK headquarters to London and have been making waves with their gorgeous, vintage inspired bras, panties, camisoles and bustiers. Affinitas offers sizes 30-38 A-DD and Parfait offers sizes 30-40 D-G. I know there are so many women out there who, like me, have sized out of that range and feel a bit disheartened when a brand stops at G.

But dismay no more, ladies! Parfait is expanding their line to a K! Their best-selling bras will now include sizing up to a K in standard UK sizing. That means you can now get the Charlotte, the Sophia and the Alexis baby doll in an H, HH, J, JJ or K! And you don’t have to wait until next spring to get one. Parfait is starting the K cups this fall. The Charlotte will be available in Peach, Red, Dusty Rose, and their new Wild Pink. The Sophia (unlined) will be available in Pearl White, Black and European Nude. And the Alexis baby doll will be available in Black and Ivory.

 Parfait’s best selling Charlotte is a beauty to behold. It comes in Peach, Red, Dusty Rose and Wild Pink. It’s so nice to see a bra have so many options when so often the shape of the bra is fantastic, but the color options are slim. I’ve always had a soft spot for red lingerie (might have stemmed from the red panties in “Miss Congeniality”) and Charlotte’s satiny red padded bra and matching high waist briefs have me swooning. The up-front shape of the padded bra is absolutely lovely. They also have a balconette and bikini briefs available and they are just as gorgeous! I’m such a sucker for vintage, pin-up girl style clothes and Parfait gets it spot on.

The Sophia is available in lace (D-K) or padded t-shirt (D-G) and is utterly feminine. I love lace bras and the lace on this bra and brief set is just enough, without being too much. It’s lined so if you find lace bras to be itchy you shouldn’t have this problem with the Sophia. It is also available as a built-in-bra camisole and has matching hipster and high-waist briefs.

Other beauties from Parfait’s fall line include feminine Nina, which is available in unlined lace or padded plunge, and the show-stopping Danielle, which available in two styles. The purple color on these is GORGEOUS! (I’m just dying for a Danielle long line in my size!) The Danielle has beautiful details like the soft gray lace of the top of the cups and satin covered buttons and has plenty of options - long line or regular bra, briefs or high-waists for a perfect mix and match. (Oh that all brands would do this!)

And that’s not all!  I haven't even touched on the Affinitas line for AW13 or the rest of the Parfait AW13! Head over to their website to check out their other lovely bras! 

Oh! Have I mentioned how affordable these bras are? The Charlotte is listed for $38 on Her Room! How fantastic is that?

It won’t be long before their AW13 line releases but in the meantime you can browse and shop their lovely SS13 line on Her Room.
