Lingerie de Paris: Chantal Thomass at BrandAlley

Lingerie should never be underestimated in its power to transform the wearer, making them feel confident, feminine and beautiful. As a lingerie blogger, I find myself seduced by quality garments that are exquisitely designed and well-constructed. My addiction to gorgeous underwear combined with my love for a sale have led me to the discovery of BrandAlley, which has since become one of my ‘go-to’ places for designer lingerie at affordable prices. 

BrandAlley recently got in touch with me to let me know about one of their upcoming designer sales for Chantal Thomass lingerie. Chantal Thomass has been dubbed the “Queen of French Lingerie” and her 40 year career has seen her dabble fearlessly in Ready-to-wear fashion, Interior design and of course, Lingerie. Since the beginning, Chantal Thomass has sought to revolutionise lingerie through a strong focus on aesthetics, transforming lingerie into a celebration of femininity and creativity.

BrandAlley kindly sent me a sample of Chantal Thomass lingerie to review – a perfect way to whet my appetite before the sale officially launched! I received a stunning set from the ‘Broderie Losanges’ line, which comprised a half-cup bra, garter belt and brief. 

The half-cup bra is underwired and unpadded, featuring cups made from nude mesh overlaid by polka-dotted black mesh. The cups also boast a knock-out lattice design with a triangular fringe and a bow adorning the centre gore.

The knickers match the bra beautifully, with an identical diamond design, nude and black mesh overlay and feminine bow motifs. The black dotted mesh on the back of the knickers allows for a cheeky flash of derrière - a look that is saucy yet sophisticated!

The black mesh suspender belt is also a very versatile piece that adds contrast to the lingerie set, whilst nipping you in at the waist. Featuring a minimalist lattice design, thick adjustable suspenders and bows, this garter belt is modern vintage seduction through and through!

Although the bra is not my size, the garter belt and knickers fit beautifully. The stretch-mesh knickers and suspender belt with boning are very comfortable to wear and both contour to your curves without digging in. The nude and black mesh fabric combination is really striking and the attention to detail makes this Chantal Thomass set delightfully luxurious and elegant.

Chantal Thomass lingerie certainly impresses with its timeless, feminine and seductive pieces. If your underwear drawer is crying out for a Spring/Summer update, get ready to feast your eyes on the BrandAlley Chantal Thomass lingerie sale. You won’t be able to resist a slice of Chantal Thomass’ iconic French style..j'adore!
