Intimate Experiments

lingerie-video-experiment-quotes-underwear-underpinnings-strapless-bras-youtube2.png

Do you ever dream of a world where you have a lingerie solution for every conceivable outfit and occasion?

Me too.

Unfortunately building the perfect lingerie wardrobe takes a lot of time, trial and error. There is no easy route or quick fix to underwear utopia.

Apparently there are seven different types of breasts and there are countless body shapes and size combinations. What may work for one woman may not work for you. There's no avoiding it - in order find the perfect underpinnings to suit your shape, size and lifestyle you need to be open to experimentation.

The results can vary - sometimes you find a life-enhancing bra or a game-changing ensemble but sometimes you end up with a yeast infection or a pair Spanx so tight they cause indigestion.

It's just an awkward, often embarrassing and sometimes liberating part of life's journey and there is nothing we love more than watching these very real, honest and funny experiments on Youtube.

Enjoy!

After studying Fashion Design at the Isitutuo Marangoni in London, Marika went on to work for several fashion and intimates brands, including Pauric Sweeney, Giles Deacon, Vanessa Bruno and Yes Master, before launching her eponymous label in 2010.

Now based in the heart of Mexico City, Marika designs timeless pieces that elegantly bridge the gap between underwear and outerwear. Worn by countless celebrities including Rihanna, Daisy Lowe and Emily Ratajkowsky, the brand effortlessly combines style and sensuality for the modern woman.

You studied in Australia, and at the Istituto Marangoni in London, then made the decision to return to Mexico and launch your own brand. How important is your international background and your Mexican soul?

 

When I graduated I had no choice but to come back to my country, it is hard to find a job in Europe with a Mexican passport. In Mexico it is hard to find a well-paid job as a designer and the lingerie industry is very focused on the mass-market, it’s about volume and Mexican consumer behaviour (mainly padded bras and shape-wear), so I had no choice but to try to build my own brand. I think the International experience has influenced my fashion culture and knowledge of design; however, it is here in my country where I found the infrastructure to make it happen at a reasonable price. My soul is in making women all around the world feel free when they work, when they seduce.

How would you define SIGNATURE by Marika Vera, your diffusion line of lingerie?

 

SIGNATURE by Marika Vera is an extensive collection of reinvented teddies, negligees, kimonos, bodysuits and lingerie. Complemented by a mix of luxury basics that fit into every modern woman’s wardrobe. The garments are made in Mexico with high quality fabrics and trimmings, always following delicate and minimalistic lines, without compromising the erotic element of the garments.

What are your sources of inspiration?

 

I am always on the search for what’s happening in the world of fashion, music, art and design. I love to find strong female characters in films; a few days ago, I found this amazing Director from the 1930’s - Busky Berkeley, he was such a great artist and his work was very related to femininity and eroticism. He was the one that made that Carmen Miranda video "The Lady in the Tutti Frutti Hat", I highly recommend having a look at his black and white work. I love vintage lingerie and swimwear and I own a collection of cheap yet amazing finds, which inspire me a lot in the design process.

Any tips to young designers that are going to approach the lingerie world?

 

Get to know the market, the competitors, give your best at your graduation collection, ask for internships more than 10 times if necessary in the places you admire, understand female bodies, design things you will wear anytime to represent your sensuality. If you are building a brand focus on finding production and materials that allow you to have a competitive price, you need to compete if you want to have creative freedom and continue to grow.

Larger Cup Lingerie

Larger-cup-lingerie-agent-provocateur-myla-la-perla-sexy-black-lagent-03.jpg

 

For a long time larger-cup brands have seemed to lack labido. With campaigns full of bubblegum bright colours, smiling faces and theatrical displays of girls 'having fun'....It's no wonder that until recently I had never bought a set.

As a 34DD, I have been lucky to be able to shop at both straight size and larger-cup brands. My personal taste is minimal and mostly black, but when it comes to my lingerie I want to invest in luxurious, innovative and, most of all, sexy pieces.

Only a couple of years ago when browsing through the most popular larger-cup lingerie sites I noticed the distinctive lack of suspender belts, lace or anything that took my fancy. Ok - the bras were supposed to be comfortable. And the fit was supposed to be amazing... but where was the sex appeal (and on occasion, taste)?

 

Larger-cup-lingerie-freya-panache-curveykate-cute-bubblegum-02

Granted people buy lingerie for many different reasons - maybe a lot of women want bright, floral, overly - cutesy everyday lingerie? Just not me. The knickers appeared to be an afterthought with very little detail - and maybe a bow or two stuck on for good measure. It was too bright, too girly and sometimes too garish. There was such a particular lack of ANY sexier ranges it was hard not to feel disappointed.

So for a couple more years I continued to shun larger-cup brands, opting for the likes of Agent Provocateur, Myla and independent brands that catered to women above a C cup. The lace was more alluring, the suspender belts increasing more intricate and the detail unrivalled.

Larger-cup-adina-reay-cromat-ashley-graham-additon-elle-04

However in 2015 things are changing in larger cup lingerie market. Brands, designers and ranges are surfacing that I can finally get excited about. As I've mentioned before Adina Reay is a brand to look out for in 2015, the detail, suspenders and sexiness of their lingerie is intoxicating. Also the popular usually-bubblegum-and-bows-brand Curvy Kate is launching their own more seductive range complete with ouvert knickers in A/W15, and the much anticipated release of the Ashely Graham collection has seen black lacy lingerie available through Addition Elle. There are countless other brands I have come across - Harlow & Fox, Scarletta, Land of Women, SJ Lingerie DD+ Collection etc... and I imagine many more are yet to be discovered.

 

What are you're favourite larger-cup brands and what would you like to see more of from them?

 

Next week we will be showcasing some of the sexiest larger-cup lingerie in an exclusive editorial.
