CAMBRIDGE, Ont. — The HBO series "True Blood" has featured a Coquette piece in its most recent episode “Let's Boot and Rally” from Season 5.
Rutina Wesley who portrays Tara Thornton in the show, wore the Coquette bustier style #1077. Her character has made a dramatic change in fashion since being reintroduced as a young vampire. In a complete style reversal Wesley's character went from plain jane to sexy vixen.
From the Rocker Chic line, this purple and black bustier was paired with simple black pants.
“I was overly thrilled to find out that the hit show was using another Coquette piece,” designer Jacqueline Macleod said. “This piece was inspired by fishnet trends in lingerie that have become more in-demand over the last year. To know that Hollywood recognizes that and their [True Blood] on-set stylist chose one of our designs, is just amazing!”
The fishnet over lycra bustier has boned underwire padded cups, a center back hook and eye closure and elasticized waist. It features studded trim detailing on the cups and bone covers, removable straps and garters, and comes in small, medium and large.

Coquette's collection covers a wide range of styles that includes the Rocker Chic, Electric Blue and Emerald Green lines.
Also comprised within this collection is a full bridal lingerie line, accessories and stockings.
The Rocker Chic #1077 bustier, along with other Coquette lingerie, can be purchased from a number of the Coquette retailers both in Canada and the U.S.
