Getting Intimate With Addition Elle

Growing up as a plus-size girl in Canada, Addition Elle has always been my go-to "Fashion Mecca". Which was why I was especially excited to be chosen to attend a private viewing of this season's Addition Elle Intimates Collection. Who Say's Support Can't Be Sexy?


I was instantly greeted by the lovely women of Addition Elle, including the absolutely stunning Ashley Graham - muse and model for this new collection. I use the term "stunning" quite literally, as I was completely stunned by how gorgeous she is as soon as I saw her (and incredibly down-to-earth and personable - the perfect spokewoman!). Other plus-size fashion bloggers and myself were then showed the Intimates by Addition Elle Bra TV Commercial (featured above) followed by a discussion all about the new Intimates Collection. I have to tell you, ladies - I am incredibly excited about Addition Elle's new outlook on plus-size fashion and all of the things they are bringing to the fashion-table!

Let's take a little look, shall we?

Smooth Curves - Smooth Curves by Addition Elle is "invisible for a visible difference". This bra features flexible, tipped underwires that don't poke through (they've heard us, ladies!); a U-back for stay-in-place, all-day comfort; molded cups for a sleek, flawless look under absolutely any top or dress; and my favourite detail - bonded, seamless back wings (thicker straps along the sides for side and back smoothing). This bra is finished with a darling little crystal that rests at the cleavage, giving this simple, everyday, comfortable bra that little bit of something extra.

Femme Fatale - This bra and matching panty set is one of my many favourites (and one that Ashley personally modeled for us - amazinggg and flawless is all I can say!). The Femme Fatale from Addition Elle is a "seductive, two-tone underwire bra and matching panty that affords a feminine allure all its own!" This bra features unpadded cups; U-back; wide straps plus a hook & eye closure with lace stitching and satin bow detail. This set is absolutely stunning - I want it in every colour.

All are feminine, flirty, beautiful and sexy - while still being comfortable, flattering, and thinking about YOU as the model and customer. Definitely be sure to stop into an Addition Elle store near you and grab up one of these beautiful bra sets - or if you don't happen to have a store near you, don't fret!

  Who Says Support - and Curves - Can't Be Sexy? Addition Elle, Ashley Graham and all of us fellow fabulous ladies all show the world that IT CAN and IS!


  1. I love this! I love how passionate you are about fashion and how proud you are of your body! Thank you so much for representing so well. Your style is on point. (I mean, you do shop at my two fav stores LB and Torrid.)

  2. <3 your dress. I also love that we share the first name. You do us Courtneys proud. =)

    With all these books, articles, etc. on helping women find the right bra size, I wonder if the stats will reflect that more women are finding the right size. I personally don't care if my bra is the right size. I don't have a lot of tissue to support so a well-fitting bra isn't a big priority to me.

  3. Thank you so so much, ladies! What lovely things you have both said. I'm profoundly honoured to do us big girls (and Courtneys!) proud. ^_^

  4. I absolutely love this bra. It's light weight and very comfortable, so comfortable that I purchased another one in a different color.
