The first of the hand-painted bras have arrived. I know they are very limited in size and style, but the dye process for silk is rather labor intensive and requires quite a few steps. If the style or size you are wanting is not currently stocked (which, I admit, is many right now), please know that I am working to stock every item upon my return from LA.

For s/s 2012 I ventured into silk painting with these dead-stock 1960's-era silk bras. The bras arrive new to me, each individually packaged, and I then use the highest quality French silk dyes to create the patterning on each one. Each bra will vary slightly as every one is hand-painted using natural resists. These bras are available only in limited sizing - from Extra Small to Medium. This particular bra is a size Medium, which would best fit a 38B to 36C. The cups are free from underwire and structuring, so there is some leeway with sizing. The model in the above photo is wearing a size Medium. Please message me if you require more information or measurements with respect to sizing.

(These are perfect for summer ensembles where you want your underthings to be on view - sheer tops, open backs, and loose tanks. Although they are a bit of a departure from my normal jewelry designs, I still see them as a slightly-unexpected-in-the-best way accessory to any look.)
