Dress handpainted in Erika motif. Every dress is individually painted (not screened) by hand, so each garment is unique.
Aguyé garments are known for their perfect bust shapes and their smooth, flattering lines.
A key feature of this garment and one main reason why our customers love our clothes is its bust shape and construction. We call it ‘Atomic Bust‘ and it is an engineered and constructed inner corselette, with boning and interlinings, which:
- Is totally supportive so you can wear no bra, because it acts like a built-in bra.
- Makes it impossible for your dress to slip down, which give you total comfort and movement freedom (as well as removing the need for constantly pulling up your garment).
- Has a 50s-true shape. If you’d prefer it to have a more modern, rounded shape though, let us know and we’ll make it to suit your taste.
- And it is extremely flattering, as it smoothes your curves and creates beautiful lines. It’ll be you, but better.
By default, this structure goes down to the waist and that’s perfect for most people. If you have a larger cup size, (E cup size or bigger), or if you have a waist measurement of 33″/84cm or larger, though, we recommend that you choose the longer version instead, that goes down to 10cm /4 inches below the waist. You will be more comfortable and it will provide optimum support. We will adapt the amount of boning strips to your particular measurements and shapes. Find more info and add it to your cart here.
You will not need to wear a bra with any of our strapless garments as their built-in corselette structure already acts like a built-in bra. If you’d like to have a bit of extra volume though, you can either wear a padded bra underneath, or you can have push-up pads sewn onto your corselette. If the former, we recommend using an unwired bra so the bra wires and the corselette boning don’t get in each other’s way. If the latter, please add it to your cart here.
