Bricolage Black Longline Bra
We are so in love with this bra style! This elegant longline soft cup bra is a gussied up version of a 1947 foundation staple with a few key features of improvement and luxury.
The wireless cups have a light beige mesh lining and ivory stabilizer with an exquisite black chantilly lace overlay. The scalloped eyelash edging decorates your decolletage in almost a bodice or camisole manner, but with much more support. Front is a double layer of black satin silk/cotton blend with decorative top stitching details and a stable interlining for a smoothing effect. Heavy weight powernet backing offers plenty of additional support and finishes in back with 6 hook and eye closures in 3 rows for adjustability. The longline ends just at the waist for a nip, and would pair perfectly with any of our girdle skirts as well for a "corsolette" full body shapewear effect.

Our robes come in 2 sizing options—size 1 will fit smaller frames and size 2 is for the plus size and broad-shouldered clientele. While the piece is very open and flexible, I would recommend size 1 for XS-L and size 2 for XL-3X, roughly speaking!
To determine glove size, measure the palm at its widest point across the knuckles. The small should fit roughly 6-7" circumference, the medium should fit 7-8" circumference, and the large should fit 8-9" circumference.

Quality Takes Time
Dottie’s Delights is a small company, committed to ethical labor practices. The utmost attention is paid to high quality and authentic workmanship, as we work to reproduce as close as is possible the craft that was put into mid-century clothing.
- All our products are constructed here in our Nashville studio.
- Each piece is patterned by the designer and hand-cut by her or one of our team members.
- Then it’s put together by one of our small team of sewists (who are paid a living wage).
With that kind of attention to detail, we can guarantee that our high standards for quality are met and that each piece you order from us is built to last.
