Fab Foundations
               by Ali Cudby
What’s New For Full Busts?

As part of the Fab Foundations mission to enhance retailers and help them serve their customers, each month we profile products that are new in stores. This month we look at a few new entrants for the full-busted woman. 

Do you have a product you’d like to see included? Just email for more information.

Panache Sport Swim

Sometimes, at Curvexpo, I see something that is truly exciting – it’s new, it’s different and it’s a product that will help women find a specific solution. A couple shows ago, seeing the Panache sport swimsuit for the first time, was one of those moments. The Panache sport bra has been a fan favorite since its launch a few years ago. Integrating that sports bra into a swimsuit marks Panache’s entry into the “Sport” category means the same award-winning technology from the Panache sports bra is now available in the pool. Full-busted swimmers have had an increasing number of fashion swim items, and having something for athletic swimming is a welcome extension, whether training for a triathlon or simply swimming for a little exercise.

The Panache sport swimsuit is available in sizes 28-40, D-H.

Lunaire Raquel

The fashion-forward and wallet-friendly Lunaire brand offers the Raquel to the full-bust woman, as part of their Simply Sexy by Lunaire line. The bra is a European semi-demi, 3-part cup featuring a lace top cup and strap, with an animal printed microfiber bottom cup. Red embellishments stand out against the fabric for a pop of color. From a fit perspective, the cup’s side slings keep busts inside the rib cage, and firm straps help ban the bounce. 

Available in 34-40C and 32D-40DDD. Bottoms in S-XXL.

Shock Absorber Active D+ Flexiwire

Leading sports bra brand Shock Absorber has a new option for full-busted women looking for the perfect sports bra to pair with their exercise regime – perfect for the New Year’s Resolution time of year!

The sports bra features an advanced, flexible underwire for optimal comfort. 
Fans of the bestselling non-wired version - N109 Active D+ Classic Support – will appreciate having a choice of non-wired and wired styles. The bra offers wide, padded adjustable straps, and a soft, wide underband for comfort. The non-rub, 3-row hook & eye closure mean floor work without hooks and eyes digging in uncomfortably. Of course, this new style incorporates the performance fabrics with moisture wicking and breathability that customers expect from Shock Absorber.

Sizes begin with 30D and go to 38H.

     The International
     Lingerie Show
The International Lingerie Show was held September 23-25, 2013 at the Rio Hotel in Las Vegas. 
As one of the biggest lingerie shows, The International Lingerie Show featured hundreds of  exhibitors, including sexy lingerie, club wear, adult products, sexy Halloween costumes and more. It is the perfect opportunity to view the latest industry trends and newest designs for the upcoming season. 
One of the show’s biggest highlights is the runway fashion show, where brands showcased new lingerie lines, club wear trends, and sexy costumes.

"We had such a good time at the September ILS debuting our new Top Drawer Corset line that received a lot of attention. It was great to see familiar faces and meet a lot of new retailers interested in our brand. ILS is such a great opportunity for us to meet face-to-face with our retailers and get their feedback about our products"
- Jennifer Reynolds of Daisy Corsets

"It's amazing how time flies. This is the one show where you can find everything you need for your lingerie business. The Tia Lyn brand is best known for luxurious lingerie offered in full size range, S - 3X. I am grateful for all of the fabulous loyal buyers and friends that have been made over the years. The traffic is always strong at ILS and our numbers are up! More and more boutique buyers are coming to find their 50 Shades of Grey along with increasing numbers of big box stores looking for fresh new product. I wouldn't miss it for the world!"
Tia Lyn of Tia Lyn Lingerie 

"All of us at Shirley of Hollywood just love the ILS Show, we have such a big build up to the event, and as always, we had a fantastic reaction to all our collection including Intimate Attitudes, HOT and Gyz. The boxed lingerie category has been so HOT, that we added more boxed Shirley styles, and wrote them very well. We had all our buyers from across the country in and writing, as well as our Canadian shops, and buyers from Asia and Europe. We premiered the brand new “Love is in the Air” Valentine collection to a great response. Shirley Valentine’s starts shipping the end of October, in addition to our Holiday line, ready for all the re-merchandising right after Halloween. We opened quite a few new customers at the show, and are looking forward to March, but before that, the Shirley of Hollywood Big Book is in the works, and will be ready for release right after Christmas to start the New Year off right." 
- Eric Schlobohm of Shirley of Hollywood

"Dreamgirl, as always, was thrilled to be a part of both of the International Lingerie Shows this year and we look forward to the upcoming shows in 2014 where we will be showcasing our latest seasonal collections! Our 2014-2015 Collection Catalogue will be launching next month and we’ve expanded some hot-selling categories, as well as added some new and exciting categories! Our new Bridal lingerie packaging will sure to be stunning and we have a few “tricks up our sleeves” for clubwear, which we will announce in November!
We are also very excited to have won the Storerotica Costume Manufacturer of the Year award for the second year in a row. With the Halloween season right around the corner, we anticipate a stronger sales turnout in stores due to the holiday falling on a Thursday night this year. Dreamgirl is once again sponsoring the French Tuesday’s Halloween Bash at the House of Blues on Thursday, October 31st. Members attending will be receiving Dreamgirl “swag” and merrymaking with fabulous crowds of Hollywood!"
- Lar Hovsepian of Dreamgirl

Baci Lingerie Garners 
6 Nominations for 
2014 XBIZ Awards
From Lingerie Lines to Eyelashes, Baci Recognized
Across the Board for High-Quality Products to ‘Celebrate Every Woman!’ 
Baci Lingerie receives six nominations for an array of products and lines for the 2014 XBIZ Awards, held at the Century Plaza Hotel in Los Angeles, California on Friday, January 24.
In addition to Lingerie / Apparel Company of the Year, which Baci was awarded in both 2011 and 2012 by XBIZ, the luxury goods company has been nominated for the following:
• Lingerie Collection of the Year, Dreams 2
• Sensual Accessory Product / Line of the Year, Luna Veneziana Masquerade Collection
• Sensual Accessory Product / Line of the Year, Baci Eyelashes
• Marketing Campaign of the Year, Corsets by Baci
• Luxury Toy / Line of the Year, Shiri Zinn for Baci
“We're truly honored to receive these nominations," says Baci Lingerie Director of Global Sales and Operations Christian Savoie. "It’s humbling to be recognized for all our various lines by our industry peers; it means we’re making the right choices for our designs and new products, as well as the retail support we provide around the world, to ensure that Baci is a global brand known for luxury and quality. Thank you, XBIZ, on behalf of everyone in the Baci family.”

This is the third consecutive nomination for Baci Eyelashes, which offers users "glamour in the blink of an eye;” the product line earned both the 2012 and 2013 XBIZ Awards for Sensual Accessory Product / Line of the Year. Baci’s plethora of easy-to-apply natural, fashion and glamour eyelashes allow women to accessorize their facial makeup, whether in the mood to be fun and flirty or dramatic and intense. Eyelash sub-collections include Natural Look, Starlight Edition, Magic Colors, Glamour, and Paradise Dreams. The lashes range from an enhanced natural look, to colors, rhinestones, or feathers.
The Luna Veneziana Masquerade Collection is handmade in Italy and distributed by Baci. Many masks are embellished with Swarowski Elements crystals, while each Mask features bendable elements, allowing the wearer to adjust the fit to the face for optimum wear and comfort. More than 30 styles of the ornate Masks were part of the collection’s launch.
Corsets by Baci is the company’s newest collection and features steel boning for a comfortable fit. The Fall/Winter set is inspired by heavier, richer materials, such as leather and suede, as well as metal. The Valentine's Set is inspired by the essence of the romantic holiday, featuring lace and satin. The Spring/Summer set is playful and encompasses the outdoors through floral patterns and the use of denim. The Bridal Set is more elegant, influenced by the erotic fantasy of a woman's wedding night.
The Dreams 2 Collection of bedroom costumes was created for those looking to spice up their love lives with some role-playing. The collection includes mischievous and sexy nods to costumes depicting nurses, schoolgirls, flight attendants, secretaries, cops, and more. Each costume in the Dreams Collection is luxurious yet affordably priced. In keeping with Baci’s ongoing efforts to “Celebrate Every Woman,” all lingerie products have been extended to include Plus Size offerings, to make all Baci products available to beautiful women of all sizes. 
“Shiri Zinn for Baci” is the luxury goods company’s first venture into the sexual aids market. A collaborative effort with luxury adult novelty designer Shiri Zinn, Baci introduced the Minx Designer Vibrator, styled with the Baci brand in mind. Every vibrator displays 12 Swarovski crystals encircling a stainless steel end cap as well as a detachable pink and black feather tail. Each comes in a handcrafted snakeskin box with satin lining, with “Shiri Zinn for Baci” on the lid, stamped in silver.

Third Time's the Charm
The Halloween industry is quite busy churning out 
1,000's of costumes per year. Many sexy costumes from at least one hundred different manufactures. 
So it's kind of surprising when one of your costumes 
gets singled out on television. It's even more of a 
surprise when 3 of your designs get chosen. Well that's what happened to Mark Behar who's 99% salesman 1% designer. 

A couple of years ago The Ellen Degeneres show called and wanted to include Behar's Nemo costume on her show. 
Being that Ellen played the incredibly well liked Dori 
in the hit movie it was a natural. 
The "Finding Nemo" segment was hysterical stating that it looked like Nemo went to Hooters. The costume proved to be a certified number one hit for a couple of years. 

It did come as a shock to Behar when two of his other designs hit the airwaves. Degeneres once again found one of Mark's designs; the Chocolate Chip Cookie sold exclusively at and featured it on the hit show. Ellen stated "nothing says sexy like a half eaten cookie". 

The 3rd and final design that made the air waves, really had everyone laughing. Mark's sexy Jolly Ranchers were being named one of the ten worst sexy costumes of the year. The Jolly Rancher featured Gina Marie of Big Brother 15, which brought more attention to the costume. There is no end to the amount of press dedicated to it. 

When asked about his good fortune of having his designs all over the airwaves Behar just had to laugh.
"With all the thousands of costumes being created each year I really find it awesome that Ellen keeps discovering my designs." Mark said laughing. " I have some fun ones coming out again this year so who knows where they will end up."
