Retro Chic in Lavinia (Part Two)

All photos shot by Jason Kamimura Photography.

I recently took a trip to Mexico and I got to stay at the most exciting spa in San Juan Cosala. That dream location combined with the perfect natural light were a match made in heaven to showcase my new lingerie addiction available through Lavinia Lingerie

*Here is a recap about the brand:

Lavinia Lingerie was founded in 2002, as a family-owned business that offers lingerie for the woman of today. What caught my attention was that their website also offers quite a few options for plus size ladies who want to dress their curves with the perfect foundation.

So I was thrilled when Armands Kruze, the founder of the brand reached back to me earlier this year and requested that our team create stylish photos wearing Lavinia Lingerie to empower curvy women. This is the purpose of what I do as a lingerie model, and there is nothing that thrills me more than to have the trust of a brand to accomplish that.

The entire collection of panties and lingerie sets that were sent to me, were all classic pieces. I feel like the modern woman who is looking to have the perfect garment foundation will definitely be able to find some fantastic pieces to wear underneath her dress or a pair of pants.

First of all, let me start by saying that each piece is super comfortable and the fit was perfection. It was never riding up and I love that they were available in a basic beige and black. I love how neutral each style is and you can easily include it in your everyday wardrobe. To me, Lavinia Lingerie creates staples that allow a woman to not think about the lingerie she’s wearing and just live her life to the fullest.

There are conversation pieces when you think about lingerie and there are classic staples that you will always go back to. Lavinia Lingerie offers classic and timeless staples that are available up to a size 3X for the bottoms. I am wearing a size 36G for both bras that I modeled in the lookbook.

I love my lingerie when it’s vintage inspired and reminiscent of Bettie Page and Marilyn Monroe, and I felt like a total retro bombshell when I modeled each piece from Lavinia Lingerie.

One thing that can be tricky when you are a full figured busty woman is to find classic staples that flatter your figure. By now, I know for a fact that certain silhouettes look better on my body type. And Lavinia Lingerie allows me to celebrate my curves and feel good about myself.

It is not hard to see how beautifully crafted every single set is. I favor chic and timeless prints over loud and not so subtle designs. I love the details from the Laura collection panties especially on the back. I am quite fond of the peek-a-boo effect and I feel it suits my curves really well.

For this particular collaboration I was seeking minimalism and a classic and timeless feel that would resonate with the brand’s identity. I love that each photo has that ethereal quality that we don’t often see in lingerie for plus size gals. It is something that I take pride in and I am always inspired by different aesthetics for my lingerie photoshoots. My idea was to create a story around the brand and the beautiful lingerie that they offer for curvy gals. And I am moved by how all the photos turn out.

In addition to creating their own lingerie designs Lavinia.com also carries a number of other brands well suited for the curvy gals. My swimsuit pick from them was this gorgeous two piece with a black and white timeless print by Lauma Swimwear. It is the perfect swimsuit whether you want to take a hot yoga class, just go for a swim, or simply lounge by the pool.

I wear a 36G for the the bikini top and a size XL for the bottoms. This suit fits me like a glove and to me this is a summer must have for the plus size gal.

We are often told that curvy gals aren’t supposed to wear bold prints because they will tend to make us look larger. To me this is nonsense. We should be able to wear whatever print we want and have confidence in our curves.  I live for this print and that classic style that will look good on any body type!
