We all deserve to feel as good beneath our clothes as we do on the outside. With a fuller bust, however, this can be no mean feat. Bra straps cut into shoulders, cups fail to deliver on the support they promise, and wiring nips under arms. Bring forth Empreinte, the French lingerie specialists who provide the best in cut and comfort (as well as glamour), to bras in those bigger cup sizes.
Supplying some of the most high-quality, renowned lingerie shops in the UK, as well as being available across France in the chicest of locations, Empreinte is a lingerie brand with a history, focussing on only the best in manufacture, materials, and quality for cups D and above.
Whether you’re looking for a completely seamless silhouette that betrays no hint of the engineering beneath, or you’re looking for something to show off - Empreinte is your answer. The same piece can fulfil both functions, with lace finishes offering intimate embellishment without disrupting your silhouette through clothing.
Using the finest materials and an expert eye, this is underwear of the highest quality. Lace, embroidery, and the finest of detailing make Empreinte a brand that offers unparalleled luxury, for every single day.
Feel supported, shaped, and uncompromisingly beautiful with this elegant French lingerie brand.
Empreinte: a history
Empreinte was founded just after World War Two in 1946. The brand’s reputation for timeless quality remains to this day.
Focussing on creating high-end products for women wearing bigger cups, in D to H, they balance aesthetic considerations with ultimate fit and comfort, for an unequalled, high-quality product that offers a little luxury to your everyday life. Specialising in producing perfectly fitting bras, and swimwear too, the brand offers timeless looks, luxury finish, and an almost made-to-measure level of fit.
This prestigious brand, made in France with the expertise of in-house French seamstresses, has chosen to utilise sustainable and responsible production methods too, using only European-made materials. This is the antithesis of ‘fast fashion’, as an investment in Empreinte is an investment that can be worn for years to come.
True to its original mission statement, Empreinte continues to liberate the confidence of women everywhere, and reconcile women with their bodies. Women should never feel held back by their curves. Empreinte works to provide the comfort, support, and style that curves call for, to make sure you never feel held back by an inadequate bra.
Choose from their iconic classics, in classic tones as well as more unusual shades and finishes. With invisible look bras, sporty chic bras, strapless bras, plunge bras, demi-cup bras, full-coverage bras, and swimwear all available across the range, all decorated and finished with an eye for luxury and elegance, Empreinte is a brand that juggles luxury with day-to-day.
The brand’s craftsmanship
Empreinte’s innovative craftsmanship is what makes it stand head and shoulders above the competition.
Honed and tweaked over their three-quarters of a century in the corsetry and lingerie business so far, the Empreinte product range is designed to “model” women’s bodies, with both respect and generosity, to hug and support curves.
The central tenet of Empreinte’s products is two-fold: to give the comfort and support you need from underwear, and, as they say, to provide “a source of wellbeing, confidence, and freedom”.
How do these two factors unite? Through the unique Empreinte fit. This superior fit means that their bras may have up to 40 different parts (which is about twice that of a high street lingerie shop equivalent), ensuring that their product hugs every curve, supports at every angle, and uplifts where fuller busts need.
When discussing their own product, Empreinte says that their lingerie “puts women in touch with their bodies, banishes self-consciousness, builds confidence and liberates their seductive side”. Their talented team of seamstresses works by hand as well as with the latest specialist equipment and machinery to ensure their expertise is infused into every Empreinte product they painstakingly create
Some of Juste Moi’s favourites from Empreinte's new introductions
For a different take on seduction: the Garance Indian Blue
When choosing underwear for self-confidence and seduction, many look to the classic shades of deep reds or black. The Garance Indian Blue shows that there is another way. The sheer sapphire rose detailing at the centre of each cup subtly draws the eye, and the rich blues flatter so many skin tones. Start by being in love with yourself every day, and see where the journey leads!
If you simply won’t deviate from black, the Garance Black brings the same motif, with just a subtle touch of navy blue added to the central flower embroidery to up the intrigue and make for something unique.
The Garance is just as perfect against sun-kissed summer skin as it is against pale, cool winter skin. Reveal its richness best through candlelight.
We love: the sheer side ruching detail on the full briefs, and the unique take on a classic romantic rose
For feeling special every day: the Melody Wild
The Melody Wild is both fun and flattering, with a younger look and feel than the typical Melody range, providing a vibrant feel as we head towards the cold winter. The band across the top of the briefs and on the strap detailing is a delicate pattern of hues, which combine beautifully with the grey-lilac body of the lingerie for effortless everyday elegance.
The seamless cup in high-quality, moulded chantilly lace injects luxury into your every day - whilst keeping those lines to an absolute minimum. Many bigger busts fight a daily battle with underwear lines - but this is where Empreinte’s finesse steps in, making for the ultimate in invisible underwear.
The Melody Wild is the perfect choice for wearing underneath a T-shirt or anything in jersey or clinging materials, which requires minimal visible lines. That makes it a brilliant summer piece, but it fulfils this brilliant job - being subtle but supportive - year round.
We love: the bra’s invisible finish, and the shorts, for their trick-of-the-eye hipster look, but full brief-level support.
For those subtly special embellishments: the Josephine Fusain
This delicate design reveals more the closer you inspect it. The ornate sawtooth cup edge is actually a pattern of intricate lace, and an ornate dance of botanical furls and curls sprawls across the cups. With Empreinte products, high levels of support and comfort are non-negotiables, and nothing changes here with the Josephine Fusain model. In a subtle hue of grey-green, wearing the Josephine Fusain feels like a treat meant just for you. For a very similar design but with a completely different feel, opt for the Josephine Albatre, in an elegant and ornate ivory tone. For an Autumnal model in warm and sensual wine shades, meanwhile, opt for the Josephine Grenade.
We love: the unusual shade of the Fusain, and the intricate and delicate detailing across all three shades.
