It may appear to be trivial but until recently it was quite hard to combine stunning design with good fit for women who were trying to find bras, panties, lingerie and other kinds of underwear. Since fitting rooms and measuring tape are definitely not every women’s favorite things in life webstores with custom lingerie are in higher demand than men might think!
We have researched and found an array of providers and brands that allow customers to design their personal custom lingerie online:
Etsy portrays itself a marketplace where people around the world go to make, sell and buy unique products. It had been founded 2005 in Brooklyn, NY and now has 32 million products on the market from 1.5 million active sellers. The custom lingerie section of Etsy features thousands of independent designers and artisans that offer hand crafted custom lingerie. For example you might find organic cotton lingerie, tummy control skirts, wireless bras or fancy bras with rhinestones.
Evlove Intimates was blessed with tremendous triumph after starting in 2006. Evlove Intimates began by hosting private lingerie parties and later serving customers with its online design studio. Their blissful luxury custom underwear line is becoming very favored by bridal parties and ladies in search of great feminine joy. “Nearly every female daydreams about being an underwear designer, that experience is brought alive for them by me,” said founder Jenny Dombroski.
The inspiration for the company name Hanky Panky came from a hand crafted lingerie set made out of embroidered handkerchiefs by designer Gale Epstein over 35 years back in 1977 for her friend Lida Orzeck. Now the brand not only offers the “world’s most comfortable thong” but their bustiers are not only comfortable but also manufactured in America with USA-made materials like US cultivated Supima cotton.
Astonishingly the prices for the Hanky Panky underwear are not expensive at all! For example a thong costs only $20 and a boyshort is just $29. Shipping and delivery is free on orders of $75 or more. Individualized orders take an additional 2-4 business days for creation and shipping.
Impish Lee has its roots on Etsy, the marketplace for custom goods we have mentioned before. The sisters Noelle Lee Ventresca and Kali Taylor Ventresca from NY have started with a little shop on Etsy and expanded it to their own completely customizable underwear brand. Currently their custom underwear design tool offers over 27 trillion unique design options.
Impish Lee offers bras, underwear, robes, slips, and loungewear in sizes 0-24. Their custom bras are even available in sizes 28A-40J. A custom bralette is approximately $118 and a custom thong panty $62.00. Domestic delivery in the is free of charge on purchases over $100 before tax and reductions.
The writer of the book “Demystifying Bra Fitting” and underwear sewing design designer Norma Loehr, sewed her first bra in 2009 but has stopped dealing with new clients because she wants to shift her focus on teaching and posting her knowledge to get everyone sewing their own lingerie. Her bra sewing patterns can be found on her website for prices ranging from $12.99 for brief or a thong to $16.99 for bras.
Renegade Lingerie is run by a certified professional bra developer and plans to eradicate the common bra. New customers need to do a short assessment which is $50 but will be deducted from the product costs after an order is placed.
True&Co is the first company that asks women questions like “How are your shoulder straps?” to find the perfect sized lingerie for their unique body shape. There are no fitting rooms, no measuring tape and no photos required and they also recognize that there’s so much more to fit than your band and cup size.
True&Co currently offers lingerie in sizes 32-38 with cup A-DD. They offer free shipping over $75 and free & easy returns. Defective products will be replaced, repaired or refunded within 6 months after the purchase.
How to find the Perfect Bra Size
A good fitting bra should feel nice around the band on the loosest hook, without shifting when you move or riding up in your back. The bra cups should encapsulate all breast tissue without spilling from the top or sides. The underwire should rest on the outside of the breast painlessly against your rib cage and the center gore in the front between the cups should lie completely flat between your breasts. Throughout the day you shouldn’t have to re-adjust your bra because a good fitting bra really is barely noticeable when you are wearing it.
