Want of the Week: Nearer the Moon Overwire Bra and Shorts

Overwire Bra and Shorts in Back Satin and Polka Dot Mesh, $127.61

The second I saw this overwire bra from Nearer the Moon, I knew it would be a perfect addiction to a lingerie lover’s knicker drawer. Ever since Dita von Teese came out with overwire bras in her ‘Von Follies’ collection, it seemed like the internet was abuzz with this vintage style and I was so excited to see that Nearer the Moon was the first indie designer I’ve seen give it a try.

I was lucky enough to meet Tilly, the designer, for tea when she was in NYC and we had a fantastic time chatting all about random lingerie things. I also got to see a sample of this bra and it looked great. It’s clear that she and I are on the same page because she used polka dot mesh (one of my favorites) and bloomer bottoms! And look at the adorable cut out in the knickers:

Isn’t it adorably retro? I hope to see some pin-up photos with this set from someone soon, because it would be so cute.

  1. I know I’m not super knowledgeable about lingerie but I had never heard of an overwire bra. I can imagine getting larger sizes would be tricky but now I’m so curious. Starting some overwire research.
