Fun In The Sun

Looks inspired by style icon Solange Knowles seem to be rather popular among our customers at the moment.



One of our customers Kate wanted a vibrant ankara print bralet for her holiday in Portugal. Like us she loves Solange Knowles eclectic style and wanted something similar to the one worn here:

Kate is quite busty so the bralet was made using a deconstructed strapless bra with underwiring for extra support and a zipper closure at the back. My sisters and I are all busty so we hate when we buy standard size tops that comes with small bra cups that we seem to pour out of - it's ill-fitting and not sexy. So making sure the bra cups fit well and that there was no side/armpit cleavage was super important.


Check out the strapless bra cups with underwiring
The bralet also features adjustable bra straps and comes with a very sexy form fitting pencil skirt which has side panels in a contrasting print.






If your not into skimpy bikinis or swimsuits when you hit the beach, then this bralet would look super hot with contrasting shorts like this Boxing Kitten ankara pair worn by Bey or even denim Levi shorts like the Bukki Ojo pair worn here by Tiwa Savage. And depending on whether or not you actually intend to go for a swim you can pile on the accessories and still look glam and feel sexy without having to show loads of skin.
