There is something about a black woman starting a business and bringing it 100% to fruition that just floats our boats and screams Black Girl Magic!
Just in case you are wondering, Magie de fille Noire, is the messy google translation for “Black Girl Magic” in French and Christel Lecordier is the founder of BomBom Lingerie the super sexy lingerie line designed with the curvy brown girl in mind.
Have you ever traveled abroad and noticed how hard it is to find good quality lingerie that really suits your curves? Do not even get me started on finding quality pieces in great colors that are not just black or nude!
Christel who is originally from the Ivory Coast, calls France home and when we talked about what inspired her to create her line she said something many of us are familiar with.
She said, “Frankly I (and my boyfriend) had trouble finding great pieces specifically made for my curves and in colors that complimented my brown skin”.
After much research, and using the knowledge she gained from working in the French fashion district Christel created what was missing from the market. Bombom was born.
Check out some of her pieces below:
All of her pieces are well made and created to fit a curvaceous body so you are bound to find the perfect size and fit for you in a vibrant color that compliments your skin tone. Her sizes range from 32-36D and 4-12, and her upcoming collection is up to E/F DD-DDD as well as 14-16.
For an entire week, Christel and her Lingerie brand will be in New York City in an effort to introduce the line to the US market and I jumped at the opportunity to help her promote her event. I would encourage you all if you live in that area to visit with her next week and check out the pieces.
