There’s something so beautiful about lace, particularly hand made lace lingerie! For some, one of the many perks of being a female is the guilty pleasure we share indulging in beautiful feminine nick- nacks. Although let’s be real, its main appeal lies in their non-wired bodies and comfort provided support. Double win.

At Mura, we are fundamentally aspired to make each of you feel beautiful today and every other day. And to give you one more opportunity to feel as beautiful as you deserve, we thought a guide on how to hand make your own lace bralette would be fitting… in more ways than one.
