New lingerie label Meg at Midnight has taken inspiration from the 1920s for its first collection of vintage inspired pieces for smaller-busted women. Created in cup sizes AA to B, ‘Else‘ features delicate, dark coloured lace cut in ways to flatter the curves of smaller figures.

Designer Megan Leung felt there was a gap in the market for a brand that produced beautiful and well fitted lingerie for small-chested females:
“There are plenty of lingerie brands out there catering for big-busted women which is great! But I have yet to see elegant, luxurious lingerie for small-busted, even flat chested women, who often feel they are not feminine enough. Such is the stigma for these women that the intimate apparel industry often offer padded bras or bras with fillers to encourage the effect of a smaller bosom.”

By offering an alternative – grown up intimate-wear that would enable women to feel sexy, sensual and also love their bodies, Megan has produced a collection that aims to inspire love for petite bosoms and celebrate the women at the heart of the label.
I admire what Megan has set out to do with Meg at Midnight. I love the editorial images, shot at Blakes Hotel in London – I hope you will check out her website here and explore her collection for yourself, Blog Reader!
Finally, a note on the name “Meg at Midnight”. There is a wonderful story about the Brothers Grimm tale that inspired the brand name, which you can read here.
