I’m so excited to share that Parfait (have you entered the giveaway? You have until midnight!) will offer expanded cup sizes beginning this August! This is such a delightful surprise, especially since the news I received at Curve in February was that expanded sizes were still a ways off. Parfait has really listened to customer praise and size requests, and will offer three very different styles up to a K-cup (UK), with the incredibly popular “Charlotte” style going down to a 28 back!
This news really thrills every fiber of my lingerie-obsessed being. Parfait is raising the bar among American lingerie companies to break out of the DD-DDD size cut-offs and catch up with their English and European competitors. Each style is a little different: you can choose padded, unpadded, or boudoir, and while the colors for the initial launch are a little basic, they’re merely the first steps in what I hope will be many more to come (and I love the new Wild Rose colorway for Charlotte: am I starting to overcome my anti-pink lingerie stance?). Finally, Parfait offers supportive, fashion-forward UK-sized full-bust lingerie for incredibly reasonable prices (bras are generally in the $40-55 range). Size-, style-, and budget-friendly: Parfait, you’re perfect. I can’t wait to try the new styles for myself; the only trouble is which to try first?
All expanded-size styles will officially launch in August of 2013. I’m not 100% sure yet which retailers will carry the line, but Erica of A Sophisticated Pair is already accepting pre-orders! She helped me order Julia Lambert’s “Danielle” set from Parfait and offers some of the best customer service around!
Happy Friday, indeed.
