Anyone who's ever shopped at Victoria's Secret knows: a good bra and panty can sometimes cost more than your monthly grocery bill ... and apparently TRIBE has translated that logic into their 2010 offering, "The Secret of Silk" (translation - there are some VS bra sets with more detail and additions than some of these costumes!)
At what point exactly does a costume stop being glorified underwear and translate into creative expression? In my opinion, it starts somewhere with sufficient crotch coverage and moves into intricate bra work.
The other issue I have is how four rows of beads or a smattering of stones is going to look on a bigger bra, if the bra is a A cup it may not look sparse however when you go up in cup sizes the less decoration on the bra the more glaring it is that the bra has been shortchanged in the decoration department. It is simply no longer acceptable for me to settle for a bra that looks unfinished. Those days are long gone when I first played in Barbarossa and my costume was $400.00TT! Add an extra zero to that figure on today's prices and some more decoration please!
