Sacha Kimmes is one of my favorite indie designers. Not only is she a dream to work with, but she so smart and talented and nice, that I love to support her and her business in whatever way that I can. She offers custom made to order sizing, and she uses diverse models in her lookbooks and photos, which I appreciate. She also has a brand new website that she just launched which looks pretty amazing, and makes ordering a breeze! Sacha is my underwear superhero. She’s the bomb-diggidy. For real.
I tend to have an obsession for ouvert (open) knickers, and just so happens Sacha makes great ouvert designs on the regular. She’s an indie brand that consistently makes gorgeous open back, open cup, or open front and back panties. So I was immediately drawn to her newest style of the season, Chelsea. Made of a pretty baby blue and black colorway. The collection features an open cup bralette, knickers, leg garter, and ouvert knickers. I’ll be reviewing the gorgeous Chelsea ouvert knickers, pictured above, as well as my first ever custom made to measure bralette from Sacha Kimmes! The Camellia bralette, pictured below.
I don’t wear bralettes often, because they can be hard to fit my bust. I also require more support than a bralette can offer, but lately I’ve been loving adding bralettes to my collection for lounging around in because they’re so pretty and it fees great to go wire-free sometimes. I have the Camellia ouvert panty, so I’d had my eye on the matching floral lace Camellia bralette. Sacha asked me if I wanted her to custom make it for me in my measurements, I was so excited, and said yes please! She took my measurements and made the bralette using a thicker elastic band on the bottom and made the bust width and height larger to fit my bust size. Success! It fits, it’s stretchy, and it encases my bust well. The floral lace feels and looks lovely, and it feels great to have a bralette made to my measurements. Sacha totally made me feel special, as usual, and it’s just one of a million reasons why I’m such a huge fan of her brand.
The Chelsea Ouvert Knickers are perfection. I got them in size Small, which is true to size. The material offers stretchy and feels super smooth and lightweight on the skin. The blue is so pretty, it’s a stormy kind of baby blue that plays on greytones. It’s like a stormy sky just before it rains. There is contrasting black elastic band at the waistband, picot edging around the leg holes, which go around each leg, exposing your butt and your vulva area. There are completely open in the front and back, and it’s so pretty, sexy, and really a brilliant design. The front waistband is thick enough to give just a peek in the front, and a more open back, with black bows at each leg strap at the front and back. So cute! The design is so playful. I’m in love. I’m definitely a Chelsea Girl. Loving this design so much.
I’ve said it many times,and I’ll continue to say it. Sacha Kimmes is an underwear artist. Her work is so well done, her fabrics are great, and her stitching and craftsmanship is impeccable. Highly recommended x 10. Check out Sacha’s new website and her new Chelsea collection, and contact Sacha if you’re interested in custom sizing!
