My first pair of tulle panties was purchased at Jane’s Vanity a long time ago. Completely plain and sheer. Black. A revelation in more ways than one. I still have them, still wear them. My love of tulle, or netting, continues. Tulle is practical as well as sexy. Dries quickly. And notice how often it is the helpful background for all sorts of lingerie embellishment. Tulle is sophisticated in black. Subtle in a pretty color such as champagne. Tulle is our secret essential.
What is tulle? “A lightweight, very fine, soft flowy machine-made netting fabric...(distinguished by) its fine yarn size and very small hexagonal holes.” Tulle does not fray at the edges. Tulle is a city in France. Tutus cannot be imagined without tulle fabric.
Vannina Vespirini can imagine a rear view in tulle. The back of her so-comfortable panties is often made entirely of tulle, shirred slightly for shape, and unseamed at bottom rear for invisibility under clothing. Experience this special design on its own with the Opera Gilded Panties. Or as part of a bra or camisole set. The charming champagne and black Classique Black Lingerie Set would be a nice place to start. Both bra and panty are constructed entirely of appliqued tulle.
Tulle lends itself to interesting color combinations. Voiment’s Tulle Wireless Full-Cup Bra Set mixes color-blocked tulle in shades of blue and purple and gives them an edge with silk accents of light blue. The set brings to mind the innovation and grace of costumes for the ballet.
Tulle is always seductive. Gilda & Pearl let it happen with their Deshabille Tulle Babydoll. The drama of this piece, in champagne, comes from its length, which sweeps to the thigh, from its total transparency, and from its hint of French lace at bust and hem. Don’t you need this? There aren’t many left.
Tulle is a canvas. Studio Pia thrills us with its embroidered flights of fancy on tulle. The Sofia Balconette Set offers images of jewels on black tulle. The Flora and Cerelia Embroidered Lingerie Sets turn beige tulle into a delicate flower garden. Taryn Winters dares us to live the embellished life in the Margot and Ava Beaded Lingerie Sets. And we’ll want to--their stretch tulle is soft as a kiss.
