Intricate Embroidered Illustrations Offer a Playful Twist on Intimate Apparel


Embroidered bralette by Birds & Beestings

Bralettes are en vogue, and I am here for it. One of my favorite iter­a­tions of this trend is the embroi­dered bralette, which com­bines intri­cate stitch­ing with del­i­cate, sheer fab­rics. Emi­ly Parkin­son of Birds & Beestings has an illus­tra­tive take on this type of inti­mate. She stitch­es entire scenes that extend across the chest. Her small but strik­ing col­lec­tion fea­tures embroi­dered prick­ly cac­ti (pre­vi­ous­ly), spot­ted fun­gi, jade snakes, and the art of Hen­ri Rousseau.

Pair [them] with your favorite skivvies,” Emi­ly writes, “take it for a dip as a biki­ni top, or wear it under a sheer blouse.” These styles are all avail­able through the Birds & Beestings Etsy shop. Fol­low her on Insta­gram, too!

Birds & Beestings adds some hand-stitched beauty to the embroidered bralette. The illustrative scenes feature the likes of cacti and snakes that extend across the chest.
