CURVYCOUTURE by Dora Lau-Full Figure Lingerie Apparel

We had the pleasure of meeting a woman who is so smart---she defines for us what an fashion industry entrepreneur can accomplish-meaning-have a  vision to creatively fill a niche-combined with the expert knowledge of fabrics, fabrications and construction---and sourcing know-how to get it all made flawlessly and delivered on time.

animal prints and lace---slimming...signature micro-plunge pad for enhancement+support, adjustable straps, paneled with velvet trim
Dora Lau may have started her professional career as a computer guru---but it's fashion that commanded her true interests---and eventually that led to this gal masterminding the launch of lingerie collections- for women of a certain sizes...a neglected market that let's face the USA ---is major.

Lau has serious credentials that led to her establishing her own label-CurvyCouture---as her Lane Bryant helm ed offerings have sold like gang busters.

Cabaret Lace plunge bra-signature microfiber cups are lined-no headlights...shaping and support

adjustable wide straps---are made to move/support
We've never actually been in a Lane Brant store---but after this preview---we can see why that line earned Lau a Vendor of the Year Award...
Looks aside-this is engineering of under pinnings that comfortably support and flatter...with special stretch materials that are moisture wicking, wires set just so ---so they don't dig in, insert panels with extra oomph for  where a gal needs it---all fashioned into sexy bras, panties, corsets---with all the feminine trims we expect.
