The idea for the framed hourglass top started with our shaped wire. We wanted to create tension on one side, and drape on the other, with negative space in the centre front, guiding the eye of the viewer in curves. The result is a comfortable yet countouring top with metal wire insert that sits perfectly in the middle of the chest. The right side has a shaped cut that holds fuller busts without the need of a bra, and the draped side holds the breast comfortably without the need of extra support - we did our test: we danced and went on a little fast paced walk in this top to make sure nothing slips out!
As the other pieces in the Barely There series, the stainless steel wire is finished by hand by our partner jeweller in London, and chrome plated for extra shine and durability. The body of the top is sewn in our studio, with special attention to finishings and internal construction.
