Lingerie Lingo: Brocade

Brocade is rich, oriental fabric consisting of raised patterns, often in gold or silver. The word, related to the same root as the word "broccoli" comes from from the Italian word "broccato" meaning "embossed cloth".

Quite a few of Lingerie Diva's products are brocade. The following are examples:

Brocade Corset by Coquette

Asian Brocade Cut Out Dress by Leg Avenue

Wildflower Zip-Front Corset by Escante
