blue and black bra

Did you know that most lingerie brands release new collections for only two seasons per year (spring/summer and autumn/winter)? It’s true!

Of the two, autumn/winter is without a doubt the most luxurious season. While we love the romantic silhouettes and soft color palettes that a spring/summer collection provides, there is just something about the luxe fabrics and rich, moody colors of autumn/winter that gets us especially excited about lingerie.

This autumn/winter season was no exception. We went all out this year and, in doing so, we can’t wait to bring you one of our best autumn/winter seasons yet.

Best of all? We’re giving you a sneak peek of our upcoming autumn/winter 2018 collections right here on our blog.

Next up: The Mariela collection, which features a lacy Unlined Wire Bra, sexy Contour Padded Bra, and flattering Bikini panty in two stand-out shades: Nightshadow and Plum/Nostalgia Rose.

Though lingerie has come a long way in the past 100+ years, sometimes you can’t help but look to the past for design inspiration. The retro-inspired Mariela collection does just that but combining the beauty of vintage lingerie with the advanced fit and fabrics of modern lingerie. We’re loving how current this collection feels for fall with its three flattering and effortlessly wearable styles.

Read on for more about the Mariela collection and find out why it’s at the top of our fall shopping list.

Mariela Contour Padded Bra P5581

The Mariela Contour Padded Bra is a contour bra with padded balconette cups, a power mesh and satin band, and a satin outer sling. This pretty bra gets its support from its snug band and its shaping from its foam cups and outer sling.

Construction & Fit

Padded contour cups constructed of cut and sewn foam are designed to give you a rounded shape. The center front keyhole gives the illusion of a low-cut shape without sacrificing any support. The satin cradle and power mesh wings also provide extra support for large busts and keep the bra band from moving up your back. Satin covered adjustable shoulder straps feel luxurious to the touch and even more comfortable on. The U-back design on the Mariela Contour Padded Bra helps to keep straps from falling off narrow shoulders.

With its t-shirt-friendly shape, this versatile bra works well with scoop neck and v-neck necklines.

Best for these breast shapes: Round, tear drop, asymmetric, slender, wide set, outward facing

Also features: Adjustable straps and a back hook and eye closure

You’ll love this bra if…you’re in the mood for a padded contour bra that is anything but basic.

Mariela Unlined Wire Bra P5582

The Mariela Unlined Wire Bra is a seamed underwire bra with three-part cups and a supportive power mesh and satin band. With balconette cups that flatter a multitude of breast shapes, this bra fits like a dream and looks stunning on.

Construction & Fit

Three-part cups are constructed of lace and lined in lingerie mesh for comfort. The center front keyhole on the Mariela Unlined Wire Bra gives the illusion of a low-cut silhouette while still maintaining support. Satin covered adjustable shoulder straps up the glam factor. A decorative outer satin sling ensures that breast tissue is pushed front and center and it also provides extra support for full busts. The two-tone effect of the lace and satin coloring is flattering on many different skin tones and an unexpected touch for a lace bra.

The Mariela Unlined Wire Bra is a beautiful and wearable addition to any lingerie wardrobe. We love the sexy fit of the balconette cups – their low-cut shape works especially well for scoop neck and v-neck necklines. This is a great style for anyone who is looking for a supportive, pretty bra without any padding.

Best for these breast shapes: Round, teardrop, wide set, outward facing

Also features: Adjustable straps and a back hook and eye closure

You’ll love this bra if…you love lace bras and you’re picky about the fit – this bra won’t let you down.

Construction & Fit

The Mariela Bikini is mainly constructed in satin with lace details. It features a decorative lace overlay on the front panel and a keyhole at center back with a bow. Stretch elastic along the waist and leg openings feel non-restrictive and keep the panty in place. The 100% cotton-lined gusset provides comfort and breathability.
