Thèmes Désir d'un Soir and Divin'Elle
Collection Hiver 2017 to 2018
Allande collections are divided into 'thèmes' - a mini collection based on a common luxurious fabric.
In the Collection Hiver 2017-18 there are eight thèmes. Each thème comprises at least three bra types:
- a balconnet bra. A pretty, uplifting look for most body types. Usually only up to a 'd' cup. Torso range is typically 85 to 95/100.
- an armatures bra. For fuller busts and/or greater coverage and sturdier hold. Some themes offer armatures up to 'f' cups, and some offer up to size 115 torso size.
- an amplimousse bra. Lightly padded. This is the only type to come in an 'a' size. Torso size, typically 85 to 95, with an occasional 100. Some amplimousse are 'push-ups' with removable coussinets for added volume under the bust.
All bras are underwired, except for the triangle, offered in this Collection in the Désir d'un Soir thème.
And each thème has at least three different types of undies to choose from:
- a 'slip' (bikini). Great for under trousers or jeans
- a 'culotte'. Elegant fuller coverage. Perfect for under dresses
- a string. Beloved by many
In addition, some thèmes also have a string fantaisie - with more detail than a regular string; a shorty; or a shorty string.
Below are pictures, sizing and pricing of two of the eight thèmes in the Collection Hiver 2017-18: the useful, very well-priced Désir d'un Soir and the ultra classy Divin'Elle.
