Brand spotlight: Rochella

It’s been three weeks already since SIL took over Paris with lingerie brands from all over the world. I got the chance to meet up with Mette from 2 cakes on a plate and Anna from Bras and body image, who are both just as lovely in real life as they are online. Thanks to the SIL newsletter, I also discovered an impressive new British brand.

Created by Karen Johnson, Rochella  offers bras in 32-42 D-J and briefs in 10-24. Karen has a background in bra designing and bra-fitting and wears a 42G/40GG herself, so she makes sure that her sets are not only pretty as hell, but also comfy and supportive.

I fell in love with the Scarletta and Nina noir sets featured above, but check out Rochella website to discover more designs.

What really caught my attention though is that Rochella is a brand with a mission: a portion of the proceeds is given to a gynaecological cancer research charity (Karen is a survivor), a cause in severe need of awareness and funding.

With bras retailing at £59 and briefs at £30, Rochella is a premium brand with attention to details and quality: Italian super stretch silk feel satin, very strong power mesh, 18 carat gold charms, super supportive rigid liner and, as a reminder of the charity supported by Rochella, all the garments are lined in a lavender shade.

I haven’t had a chance to try Rochella firsthand yet, and that would involve some sister-sizing, but those balconnettes look very promising (hint: these are TRUE balconettes and the gore is not twice as tall as it should!). I’m sure that Karen’s 30 years of experience have worked their magic!
