Department of Curiosities Longline Brassiere


The longline balconette, strapless brassiere is too beautiful to keep under wraps.  With pieced cups and an unique full coverage design, it is equally suited as a special boudoir item or shown as evening wear.  Paired with our tap pants or a skirt, this bustier would be perfect on the board walk or for an evening of social dancing.

Every detail has been considered in this brassiere to make it a pleasure to wear: it is exceedingly comfortable on account of the elongated bridge, vintage-style power net wings, contouring spiral steel boning, top-of-the-line-underwires, plush elastics,  and cushioned hook and eye closures.

With these components, we craft our bras with the finest Italian textiles, woven in the Lake Como region, and designed, cut, and sewn in our Chicago workshop. We offer our brassiere in a solid stretch silk satin, or an exclusive silk/cotton satin print designed by Esther Garcia of Butterfat Studios for Department of Curiosities and printed in Italy.

Our brassieres are hand crafted to order following a slow fashion model. This means that each piece is made with the utmost care and attention: each bra is placed and cut individually meaning every printed bra is unique.
