A new high-end lingerie brand has launched in London, offering bespoke designs in all sizes.
London-born Karyn Eson, 28, founded Empress of Lace after years of being unable to find modern, versatile and sexy lingerie that suited her shape.
Her debut collection is made up of silk bras, suspenders, slips, thongs and petticoats. Many bra styles are available up to a GG cup, but customers can request a garment to be made in their individual size, if it’s not stocked on the website.
“Empress of Lace was formed on the premise that bigger busted women should have an equal number of lingerie options as there are for smaller busted women,” explained Eson.
The range is handcrafted in the UK using materials sourced from France and Italy, including Leavers and guipure lace.
Some styles can be worn multiple ways, such as Angelika (pictured), a demi plunge bra featuring hand-sewn guipure lace, which can be teamed with a detachable waspie.
Eson was able to establish her business after receiving funding from Virgin StartUp.
