Karolina Laskowska makes some of the finest luxury lingerie in the world. Harlow & Fox was one of the very first luxury fuller bust lingerie brands and basically created an entire market category. And the two of them have the AUDACITY to keep collaborating and creating stunning lingerie ranges out of the most beautiful silks and lace, with an enormous number of pieces and accessories, especially for DD-G cup sizes (DD-I in US cup sizes). Every time a new collection comes out I say it’s my favorite, and then the next one drops. I got to wear the PERFECT Alycya range for the Fairytale Bride lingerie editorial that ran at The Lingerie Addict, and I fantasize about owning more.
With a new (and completely bombshell glamorous) collection dropping just in time for the holidays, I have visions of silk and lace and pearls dancing in my head. Having seen some of these collections in person, I want to particularly shout out the suspender belts, lace cape, and ouvert briefs for being both stunning and comfortable. Which is your favorite?
Note: if any of these or other Harlow & Fox styles catch your eye, many are made to order, so if you want them in time for Christmas, place your order by November 22, 2020!
Oh my gosh, also, is anyone else absolutely fascinated by super luxe Advent Calendar/12 Days of Christmas style presents? I saw the Liberty Advent Calendar in person two years ago and was transfixed, and while I would never in one million years give someone one and would feel sheepish receiving one, I’ll just put it out into the universe that after a very hard year, I hope as many people as possible receive these ridiculous treats and feel joyful and comforted. Harlow & Fox, correctly reading my mind, has unveiled three tiers of 12 Days Gift Boxes, full of gorgeously wrapped lingerie and accessories, all designed to be both beautiful and easy-to-fit, so congratulations in advance to you lucky ducks who receive them!

Truly Love these!
I just wish they were not $250 a Bra!
Maybe $250 for a set (Bra, pantie… etc)
How does H&F compare to Playful Promises?
PP has great quality, and their sizing even in the quarter cup plus size range all fit beautifully at a reasonable price.

I can totally understand if $250 isn’t in your budget for a bra! That said, Harlow & Fox and Playful Promises, both companies I love, make completely different products using completely different production methods. Playful Promises is a much larger operation (while still being a relatively small brand), using factory production to keep costs down while producing at a larger scale and using less expensive (though still lovely) textiles. Harlow & Fox is a much smaller brand, with products produced entirely in the UK and Europe by a handful of individuals, using real silk, real pearls, French lace, and other luxury finishings. They also offer luxurious bespoke services. Comparing the two is like comparing Bluebella and Carine Gilson– both brands may make satin bras, or pretty robes, but the manufacturing process, stitching, textiles, finishings, and customer experiences are totally different! If you want silk bras and a luxury experience, then Harlow & Fox is for you, but you can’t get that at a Playful Promises price point. Both brands are fantastic, but they meet different needs.

thank you for the thorough explanation.
Makes a lot of sense. I admit I over looked Silk being a factor.
Perhaps one day I’ll splurge on a silk bra… but I’ll still struggle to see the value in a $250 Bra, short of supporting a small business.
