Following on from the big reveal of Daisy Lowe’s sensual swimwear, the curve crusade continues thanks to buxom beauty Dita Von Teese, who is set to launch a lingerie line for women of all sizes. We woop!
Yesterday, Dita took to Twitter (natch) to announce she’s ‘just signed a new lingerie deal!!! Glam underpinnings in XS to plus-sizes! Launching in Australia, then going global shortly after. Excited!’ As are we, DVT! Because as the ultimate burlesque queen and mistress of all things curvilicious, Miss Von Teese is the perfect gal for the job - it’s baffling this hasn’t come sooner, in fact – but if you remember her collections for Wonderbra that she created a few years back, you’ll know we’re in for a real treat! (relive the brilliantly bonkers ad below).
‘I love lingerie that fits well and is also beautiful, bringing function together with glamour and sensuality,’ said the super-sexy Dita. ‘I am especially excited to be designing lingerie with a vast sizing range so that women of all shapes and sizes can have a beautiful, sensual lingerie wardrobe that suits their body type.’ Amen to that, sister! ‘Indulging in elegant lingerie isn't about the seduction of another person, it's about seducing yourself first and embracing womanhood and femininity.’ Oooh la la!
So we’re anticipating bejewelled bras, figure-flattering corsets and lashings of crimson satin to be worn with fluttery fake eyelashes and glamour-puss red lips, of course. What’s more, the Australian company Lime Door Brands, who DVT has signed with, is already tantalising us with promises of retro-inspired dresses too. What a teese!
