‘La Perla knows so well how to mix elegance and seduction with comfort. Perhaps this is because it was founded by a woman, the corset-maker Ada Masotti, known in Bologna s ‘Golden Scissors’ for her ability to cut and tailor underpinnings.’
I certainly think a lot of underwear brands miss the point. All designs seems too blatant and too obvious. This bra, however, is beautifully subtle and alluring. It can be worn both with straps and without. The colour is well considered. The peach toned slip is constructed from Georgette and satin and the decollete is covered in tiny pearls all hand sewn using a soutache techninique.
Now this little number is certainly daring and most definitely revealing but maintains an air of sophisticated seduction. It shows a corset effect at its very best. It is available in black but somehow loses its appeal unless in this sexy, flesh tone.
La Perla is by no means a budget buy but it will last when treated with care.
‘Good lingerie is the quintessence of femininity and secrecy is part of the pleasure.’
