Review: Luva Huva Lingerie
Luva Huva produces beautiful, handmade lingerie using ethically sourced fabrics. Joanna Ketterer, the designer, wanted to create a lingerie collection that celebrated elegant feminine style whilst also providing a sustainable alternative to the often wasteful fashion industry. All of the pieces are handmade in the UK from locally sourced, vintage, and end-of-line fabrics wherever possible. Ethical fabrics such as soy, organic cotton, and bamboo, which are brilliantly soft and breathable, are also used in this beautiful collection.
In a previous post, I covered ethical lingerie brands, including Luva Huva. Because of limited fabrics and editions, some ethical lingerie brands lack a wide range of sizes, but I'm happy to report that Luva Huva carries both larger cup sizes (A-D) and panties (UK 8-18). They sent me their Coraline Black Lace Triangle Bra and Brief Set to try out and review.
As soon as I opened the small envelope from London, I could tell the the pieces were delicate, but extremely well-made. The lovely lace detailing is strong and the bamboo jersey is soft. This bra won't provide much support, but it's light and breathable, making it perfect under airy summer dresses; I've found that lighter bras make a world of difference in the summer months. For this reason, I am definitely taking this set on vacation!
I'm impressed with the fit, quality, and style of the Coraline set and would love to own more pieces from Luva Huva. They carry a wide range of sizes, colors, and styles which include pajamas, slips, t-shirts, bridal, and even swimwear. Luckily, they are having a huge sale online and, although they are located in the UK, shipping is amazingly only $7.95 to the US. Free recorded delivery is available on all UK orders over £50. You can also order from them via Etsy. Below are some of my favorite items (all on sale right now!)
