General Recommended Care
La Perla products are delicate and require particular care when washing.
Please handle your garments with care and read all garment care labels carefully. For most products we recommend a warm hand wash. Do not leave garments to soak and do not wring, rub or spin dry your items. Hang products to dry or allow to dry flat. Garments should be ironed inside out.
Some garments specify dry clean only.
Do not put bras in the washing machine or in the dryer. Every underwire bra has a protective rubber tip; this protects the garment and your skin from being exposed to the sharp edge of the wire. Machine washing underwire bras causes the rubber tip and the fabric to wear, which can eventually expose the wire. The cups of padded and pre-moulded bras can also be damaged by washing machines and dryers.
Hand wash in luke warm water, avoid chemical products, sun tan oils and detergents. Do not rub, do not soak and do not wring the item. Dry garments in the shade, away from heat.
Do not put any silk garments in the washing machine or dryer as this may damage the fabric.
THE CLASSIC BRA
This bra is characterized by cups that almost completely cover the breasts, with central straps and by a shaped, high back. The Classic can have underwire support or not, and the cups can be with or without padding. If there is no padding, the cups are usually lined so as to give more support to the breasts.
Style Tip: The presence of cups that give control, inner lining, wide straps and a shaped and high back make this model ideal for larger breasts which require firm support and control.
THE BALCONNET BRA
This bra is characterized by the cut of the cups which reveals and highlights the upper part of the breasts. The straps are at the side of the cups, the back is lower than that of the classic bra and it is unshaped; the cups are underwire and they can be either with or without padding (total or partial).
Style Tip: Particularly suitable for low necklines as it highlights the décolleté by pushing up the breasts.
THE TRIANGLE BRA
Both the neckline and the cups are of triangular shape. The straps are central, the back is low and unshaped. The “brassiere-bretelle” has been launched by La Perla in summer 2001. It’s the evolution of the triangle bra: two strips of lace cover the central part of the breasts and resemble a pair of male braces.
Style Tip: Although traditionally suitable for those with small breasts, today there are models that thanks to an internal support structure, offer greater wearability.
THE PUSH-UP BRA
This bra is characterized by a special slant of the cups and it highlights the breasts by pushing them up and together. The padding, total or just in the lower half of the cup, forms a rounded shape and greatly increases the proportions.
Style Tip: It’s the ideal solution for those who wish to enhance their decollete as it has the effect of adding almost one extra size.
THE BANDEAU BRA
It is, by definition, strapless or with removable straps: its cups cover the breasts in a horizontal fashion, the back is high and it can be with or without padding. It is often trimmed with silicone borders which make it easier to wear, preventing it from slipping.
Style Tip: This type of bra is perfect under strapless dresses or those with very thin straps.
This process can be used for all types of bras with or without underwire, and with or without padding. A special technique is used, utilizing heat on metal moulds to shape the fabric in such a way that the cup doesn’t need to be modeled by means of cuts or seams.
Style Tip: The absence of seams on the cups and the rounded shape makes this type of bra particularly suitable for wearing underneath lightweight, transparent or close-fitting fabrics.
Descended from the old-style corset, with whalebones replaced by softer supports that go down to the waist leaving the hips free. It highlights the breasts utilizing underwire cups that offer support.
Today the bustier is used in its strapless form as an undergarment substitute for the bra worn under strapless or low cut apparel. It is also worn as outerwear with or without straps comprised of fabrics such as satin, LYCRA®, lace, velvet etc.
Style Tip: Particularly suitable for those who want to increase the fullness of a slender bust with a thin waistline.
An obligatory pendat of the bra, they can be high, medium or low cut depending on the hip shape.
Reduced in size both at the front and the back and narrows the hip to a thin strip of fabric.
Briefs with very reduced dimensions at the back leaving the buttocks completely bare.
In the more classical version they completely cover the hips and the buttocks or the upper part of the thigh. Several versions exist, however, sportier or utterly sexy versions with a g-string or short skirt or cut-out on the hips. They can be made of either stiff or elasticized fabric.
It’s similar to the bustier and has a whalebone structure that extends to the hips, culminating in a suspender belt. It can be made of classic fabrics like lace and tulle or of smooth fabrics. The breasts are normally supported by underwire and the cups are almost always padded.
The body suit is extremely versatile: it can be made of lace or tulle or smooth and concealing fabrics: there are various possibilities of leg cuts and styles, including the g-string, and it is characterized by the structure of the cups. It can be classic or in blaconette or triangle style.
This item is a band that goes around the waist with four pieces of elastic (or metal hooks) hanging down to which stockings are then attached. La Perla has contributed to the evolution of what, today more than ever before, can be considered as the item of seduction par excellence, by exclusively creating a number of innovative models: these include the corset, the g-string, the micro-skirt and the short slip with incorporated suspender belt.
This is the “glamorous” version of the well-known “slip”; short so as to reveal most of the legs and also made of stretch and smooth fabrics so as to outline the body even more. The version with cups can be classic or in the triangle or balconette style etc. with or without underwire and padding. It can even be worn without a bra with coordinated briefs and g-string.
