As I have gushed earlier, our drop dead gorgeous new lingerie collection is now out. Lush, dark colors are adorned with bold lace in an ode to old days, where icons like Greta Garbo and Katherine Hepburn spun a dreamy charm upon our collective conscience.

The colors chosen for this collection are Indigo, Sepia and Vine. Why these particular colours, you ask? Let me tell you, I have always kept the Indian woman’s unique skin tone top of mind at Buttercups. When I set about designing the new range, I wanted to have colors that would be both bold and yet compliment the Indian woman’s ethos. Enter Vine, Indigo & Sepia. (more…)

Underwired Bras: Yay or Nay?

Print

Every woman, at some point in her life or perhaps daily, has wondered while wearing an underwired bra, is this really necessary? We can confidently say, yes it is! Underwired bras are definitely better for support and overall control over your chest than soft cup bras are.

I hear endless complaints about how an underwired bra feel like B-prison. Well, they don’t have to! The first thing you need to do is find your correct size. Wearing the right sized underwired bra will make all the difference in how you feel in it during the day. A major point to keep in mind is the quality of underwire of the bra. When picking an underwired bra style, try to twist and turn  the wire gently. If it moulds easily without a lot of strength, you’ve got a winner! If it’s hard and does not, put it aside. At Buttercups, I ensure we use the most flexible yet strong wires, to ensure comfort and great support. (more…)

Strapless Bras

Sometimes, going bare shouldered, with a spring in your step and a toss of hair over your shoulder is a fabulous feeling. And when you go strapless, you need a supportive strapless bra! Be it sleeveless dresses, tank tops, tube tops, halter tops, sundresses or strapless evening gowns, all of them demand a well fitting strapless bra to look their best. Please don’t wear bras with straps under any of these styles, and especially not those transparent straps! (more…)
