This winter we are introducing the first of our "Mix and Match" series Bra and Panty Kits. We think it would be such that would be such fun to mix coordinating prints up in all sorts of ways for your lingerie. What about a bra in one print and a pair of panties in a different but complementary print? Or maybe the band of your bra out of one and the cup fabric it's mix and match partner? You could even mix the fabrics on an adorable pair of mix and match panties. With these Mix and Match Kits we will offer a half yard of each of two fabrics that we have created especially for you to mix and match in all sorts of fun and beautiful ways.
The first combination of beautiful bamboo jersey prints we are offering are called Sun Valley. With the 1936 opening of the Sun Valley ski resort in Idaho, skiing was established as 'the' winter sport for Americans all across the country. We love the wintery blues and whites of these prints, complete with the miniature skiers in their teals, yellows and pinks for a pop of color. Together they will make the most delightful bra and panty set for the winter!
The Sun Valley prints featured on the bra and panties are luxurious, with a 4-way stretch and perfect recovery. Bamboo jersey is a great fabric for lingerie -- antibacterial, breathable, soft, light, airy and altogether yummy. Because the print is a 4-way stretch knit you can cover the band of your bra with the print for an all-over look. The bra kit will come with your choice of Frost or Midnight materials underneath. You may choose either Frost or Midnight for your band materials and the channeling for under the cups. If you use Frost, the colors will appear more true. If you order self straps you will receive a small piece of white strap elastic to add a bit of flexibility to the strap. If you want an elastic strap it will match your accent color. The hook and eye unit will also be dyed to your accent color. Some gals like to use Spacer Foam under the cups to add a bit more body to the cup, and you can order a kit cut of spacer in Frost or Midnight for this purpose. Accent colors offered on this kit are Glacier, Golden, Storm and Frost.
Bamboo jersey is also a beautiful fabric for panties! It is exceptionally soft, breathable, and is reported to be anti-microbial also. It has a lovely soft stretch and perfect recovery. You can pair your bamboo jersey print with any of our panty elastics dyed to your accent color. The Wide Daisy Elastic is a great waistband and helps avoid that dreaded muffin top. Our panty picots are soft and a breeze to apply. Our ultra-thin gives you stealth panties. The elastic is so thin that it disappears. The foldover elastics are great, and lots of patterns give great instructions for applying them. I especially like the fancy foldover. The plush is super soft and the fold line in the middle makes applying it easy peasy. Finally, choose our 1/2" or 1/4" non-picot elastic for an enclosed elastic option. You can choose to double or triple the yardages of your panty elastics and they'll be cut as a single piece. This gives you the best utilization of your elastics.
