Empreinte is a French lingerie designer who for sixty years has answered the call for full busted women seeking beautiful, sexy bras. Empreinte has a legacy of delivering fashion forward bras that still deliver a flawless fit and amazing support.


Empreinte is constantly evolving, taking notice of women's ever-changing needs and emerging design innovations. Empreinte was one of the first lingerie manufacturers to launch a bra with a deep and “revolutionary lift effect. Since their launch in 1950, Empreinte has positioned itself as a large cup size specialist. Empreinte delivers collections that all women can enjoy; timeless styles, beautiful color palates, spectacular fabric selections and of course, an amazing fit.


From humble beginnings to world renowned lingerie brand, Empreinte began with just a four-person operation under founder Jean Le Her. Within a few years, the team was built up to fifteen employees. In the 1950's, two female seamstresses were on hand to create bras in cup sizes A-C. They designed pieces that catered to the new American fashion trend: enhancing the female figure, instead of covering and concealing. It wasn't long until the duo turned out cup sizes D and E to keep up with women's demands.


In the years that followed, Empreinte grew quickly. They began showcasing their models, further added to their staff and moved to a larger factory. In the blink of an eye, Empreinte was designing its first strapless bra, creating a swimwear line, and most recently, designing bras in a G cup.


Empreinte has sealed its place as one of the top European lingerie companies. With a current size range of 32C-46G, Empreinte is a brand not only well-known, but beloved by full figured women around the world. Empreinte-Bras.com stands by Empreinte and is proud to make these fantastic bras and panties available to the women who frequent our Charleston, SC boutique and online store.
