My overarching vision is to provide women with feminine, comfortable lingerie, whether that be through sewing their own or buying from the market. As a small chested woman who until recently had boobs about the size of bug bites, I used to shop in the teen section. Totally okay when you’re actually a teenager, but I was well past that age and still looking for bralettes in Limited Too. Then I learned how to make my own, and the heavens opened. Angels didn’t sing, but they could have because I was like, “Hallelujah!” My breasts were exposed to a whole new world. Bralettes, soft bras and even underwired styles that made me feel sexy and confident. Sound cliche? It’s the dang truth. Inspired to help other women feel the way that I did, I began teaching workshops and 1-on-1’s. Here’s the thing though – not everyone can sew. Also, even though I’m a die-hard sewist, I still LOVE shopping. Love, love, love. In moderation of course. So this is what I’m trying to achieve, and today, I’m SO excited to introduce what is hopefully the first of many Madalynne Intimates styles to come.
Made in the US – Brooklyn to be exact – the Nina set is inspired by my favorite me-made halter bralette. The bra has a high, halter neck and racer back and the panty is a basic high waisted style. Available in black and white, it is made with a soft lace that has a raised, textured surface. It is lined with stretch mesh and finished with picot plush elastic. The bra has elastic at the underbust for support. It has metal rings and sliders, but no hooks and eyes.
Like many women these days, Nina can be many things. It can be worn as an everyday bra and a crop top. Its softness also makes it a great option for loungewear, a sleep bra and even a comfy option for yoga.
Its super soft lace is machine washable (on cold water in delicate cycle), so its not a hassle to keep clean.
Lingerie can be a hard gift, but combined with the right pieces, it can make for a great holiday bundle for relatives, girlfriends, even coworkers. As the holiday season approaches, I’m really excited to pair the Nina set with a candle, the perfect striped tee, a planner, lipstick or martini glasses. I’ll toot my own horn and say this would be an even better because you’ll be supporting a little, indie lingerie maker like myself during a season that full of mass manufactured products.
