Last week we highlighted a stellar full-bust lingerie brand and this week we’re going to cover another one! Full-bust bras are incredibly popular with our curvy customers (and we find that many women are curvier than they believe once they are fitted properly by our store staff). Today we’re focusing on Elomi, the full-figured lingerie brand that keeps designing bras that become popular classics.
Elomi Lydia Sahara Bra
This full cup Sahara Bra looks gorgeous on and works as a fantastic t-shirt bra! This is a little higher cut than some of Elomi’s options, but equally stylish and as supportive as their popular plunge shape.
Elomi Charley Ballet Pink Bra
If you want your t-shirt bra a little more plunging, this Charley bra is a great option. It works well under almost any low cut neckline and is seriously supportive on.
Elomi Sachi Leopard Print Bra
Everyone loves Elomi’s delicate and famine take on the bondage influenced strappy bra trend! This one has a gorgeous butterfly outline combined with lots of unexpected details. This leopard print one is a classic! Leopard print is basically a neutral these days, so we suggest buying it to mix and match with your other fun fashion panties.
Elomi Matilda Petrol Bra
The Elomi Matilda is sheer and extremely supportive! It comes in a range of great colors but we’re particularly drawn to this petrol color for summer. It reminds us of the water on our summer vacations! The satin dot embroidery on this style is really beautiful.
Elomi Cate Black Bra
This wireless Cate bra is an old Elomi favorite and has an extremely devoted following among our customers. It’s supportive, comfortable and great for those of you who just don’t love wearing a wired bra all of the time.
Elomi Bijou Purple Bra
This t-shirt bra has serious style! We love the strappy detail as well as the j-hook capability. It feels special enough to be fun to wear but is supportive enough to become part of your weekly lingerie routine.
Elomi Kim Caramel Bra
This is another great plunge bra from Elomi that is surprisingly beautiful in person. We love the subtle pattern combined with the stretch lace cup that makes for an easy fit on most people.
Over the next few weeks we’ll be shining a spotlight on several of our most popular brands in our stores! If you shop online, it can be harder to know what pieces are more universally popular and might work really well for you. By getting to know our favorite brands, you might discover your new favorite brand!
Today we’re talking about Curvy Kate and their sister company, Scantilly Lingerie. Both companies focus on high quality bras and lingerie for curvy women. Their pieces are available in an incredibly large range of cup sizes and their bras hold up well over time. If you want bras to wear on a weekly basis then check out Curvy Kate. If you want bedroom appropriate styles with serious support built in then check out the various offerings from Scantilly. Either way, we know you’ll be back for more from this powerhouse UK lingerie brand.
Curvy Kate Victory Black Bra
This Victory bra provides lots of support and a really great shape under t-shirts and other clothing. Many of our customers also love it due to it’s unfussy and more androgynous look. If you’re someone who loves a great t-shirt bra and cuts all the bows off their bra purchases, then this one is for you.
Curvy Kate Smoothie Latte Bra
If you’re full-busted and need a great beige t-shirt bra, then look no further. This one is it. This bra was the result of years of development and testing and it’s incredibly popular with our customers. The attention to fit and materials really shows. If you take good care of it then it will hold up forever.
Curvy Kate Unwind Black Bra
Curvy Kate has recently released their first ever non-wired bra! It’s stunning and fun to wear – and has that focus on fit and support that comes with everything from this brand. If you’re someone who never thought a bralette would work for you then you should try this one.
Curvy Kate Luxe Ivory Bra
When this bra debuted, Curvy Kate showed that you could do cartwheels in it without it slipping! It’s wildly popular build and huge range of cup sizes has made it one of the best strapless options for full-busted women on the market.
Curvy Kate Scantilly Vamp Black Bra
If you want a sexier option, try Scantilly! We love this bra because it has the support of a t-shirt bra but the looks of a bedroom bra. It’s great under a dress for a date night surprise.
Bridal season is in full swing here! We love seeing all of our new brides in the stores each year. In fact, it’s one of our favorite parts of the entire year! We recently received a huge shipment of new bridal lingerie, so today we thought we’d show off some of our favorite pieces from it.

Here at Karnation we believe that everyone should have equal access to great underwear! The men in our lives often neglect their underwear drawers. How many men do you know that have been wearing the same ratty pair of boxers forever because they hate shopping? How many men do you know who buy itchy underwear in packs because it is easy?
We’ve restocked our men’s section lately with lots of new goodies so now is a great time to convert your favorite man to a better quality of boxers! We have lots of different cuts and styles, as well as a full range of colors and prints. We know from experience that once he can feel the different in support and comfort he won’t want to go back to his old underwear!
