Overview: Rosie for Autograph Silk & Lace Unpadded Balcony Bra Set

Author: Estelle

Disclosure: I purchased this lingerie with my own cash and was not asked to assessment it. This post contains affiliate hyperlinks.

Marks and Spencer – the home of ‘this is not just food’ food, Percy Pigs, and lingerie. Can you think I’ve lived in the UK for 26 of my 27 years, create a lingerie weblog, and had by no means till not too long ago bought underwear right here?

M&ampS sell over 61 million pairs of knickers per year and claim that 1 woman in three owns a bra by them, and over their 90 years in the lingerie biz they’ve carried out some fantastic items such as launching nude lingerie for multiple skin tones back in 2011, but I’ve constantly located their styles a tiny standard for my personal taste. They’re the place to go for spending budget-friendly, every day wardrobe staples apparently, but that is not actually my issue.

Then, in 2012, model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and M&ampS with each other launched Rosie for Autograph which rapidly became the quickest-promoting lingerie range in their shop. Preconceptions are hard to forget though and I still didn’t actually pay the brand any consideration, till I was in their café earlier this month across from the lingerie division and figured I could as effectively have a browse.

I was right away drawn to two Rosie for Autograph bras in a glorious shade of red, and I also picked up this unlined balcony bra in a pinkish-cream to try on. The fit of the red ones didn’t kill me but oh, the third bra! I left the shop devastated it wasn’t red too and seriously thinking about acquiring a single plus a packet of dye.

Properly, silly me, it does come in red. And in black and a cool olive-and-cream combination. The 1 time I try lingerie purchasing in a shop and I nonetheless finish up purchasing on-line!

Appearance

The Silk &amp Lace Non-Padded Balcony Bra is an sophisticated affair combining lace, sheer mesh and silk, and the colour is glorious. Specifically the shade of red I have been hunting for a lingerie set in because forever ago – not too bright and orangey, not also dark and burgundy. Just a rich, deep, lovely red.

The Brazilian short-style knickers are lovely, with a wide lace trim, silk front and a tiny rose-gold charm like the bra. I know rose gold is everywhere right now and it’s the ‘cool’ point to like but I do not care, I really like it and it operates perfectly alongside this shade of red.

And then there’s the French knickers. Soft, slippery, glossy silk with a little mesh and lace trim. Can you think these are only £20?!

Verdict: ten / 10

Building

I expect a certain level of good quality when I’m acquiring lingerie on the higher-street, but this set exceeded those expectations. Almost everything is just perfectly sewn with each other with tiny little stitches, and the ‘Rosie’ embroidered elastic on the bra straps is a detail I certainly didn’t believe I’d find on a £26 bra. (Other, padded bras I tried on in the shop had Rosie’s signature imprinted into the lining). I can see why M&ampS is a favourite in the nation’s lingerie drawers.

Verdict: ten / ten

Fit

Either M&ampS does not carry Rosie’s line in retailer in 30-bands, or they’d all sold out, so I attempted on a 32D. It match nicely but a tad loose in the band so I ordered a 30DD online, and I couldn’t be happier with the match. It’s like the bra was created just for me! It’s so comfy I barely notice I’m wearing it as well.

The matching briefs and French knickers I bought my usual size of a UK 6 and they both fit correct to size also.

Verdict: 10 / ten

Durability

This is a silk and lace set with an underwired bra, and do you know what? It’s all machine washable up to 40 degrees. I haven’t attempted that, I’ve only hand-washed the set, but I can inform you it doesn’t leak a drop of dye which is so unusual for a silk this richly-coloured.

Verdict: 10 / ten

rosie-for-autograph-lingerie-review

Truly need to reduce that label out!

Worth for Income

So here’s the best bit – for the three-piece set I bought, you are hunting at significantly less than sixty quid! £26 for the bra, £20 for the French knickers and £12.50 for the briefs. This is only marginally much more than they’re charging for considerably less fancy bras – tons of Marks and Sparks’ plain-searching t-shirt bras are retailing for £25 – but this one’s beautiful, and it’s silk.

£20 for the silk French knickers is an absolute bargain too – a swift search reveals similar-looking types by other brands at £20 and up, in polyester satin.

Verdict: 10 / 10

Er, so, I just rated this ten out of ten for every thing which is a first on this blog, and should tell you every little thing you need to know about my opinion of this purchase! That doesn’t imply it is my favourite lingerie I’ve ever bought by the way (it’s not), but for the price it charges I actually can not fault it.

The unlined bra is obtainable here, the French knickers here, and the Brazilian briefs here, all in a selection of colours. Also in the same range are a padded balcony bra, padded plunge bra, padded ‘beau’ bra, shortie knickers, high-leg knickers, teddy, pyjama set, brief chemise, extended chemise and robe. You can’t say M&ampS does not give you possibilities!

What do you think of this bra set, and have you ever attempted anything from Rosie for Autograph?

Evaluation: Foxers Lace Bralette & Lace Boxers

Author: Estelle

Disclosure: I received the lingerie shown here free of charge of charge from Foxers to evaluation. All opinions are, as often, 100% honest.

A even though back Foxers got in touch and asked me if I’d like to overview something by them. I currently knew them from their lace boxers which I’d had my eye on as a prospective obtain, so I couldn’t have been more thrilled. They asked me to send more than a list of items I liked, and by coincidence picked out my favourites from it to send me – one particular pleased Estelle!

The goodies arrived in the Foxers drawstring bag pictured above which I loved (and which comes with every order) – best for storing them in but lots huge adequate to use as a typical bag as well for going to the gym or what ever. Here’s what I thought of the lingerie itself…

foxers-pink-lace-bralette-review

foxers-review

Appearance

I consider ‘casual’ is the word that very best sums up Foxers’ aesthetic. There’s just some thing so relaxed and easygoing about every little thing they style – this is lingerie that is fairly and stylish, but also looks comfy enough to put on all day lengthy and even to sleep in. Maybe ‘wearable’ is the word I’m look for.

Usually, casual is not my individual style at all! I like to dress up. I’ve also not massive on boxers or anything menswear-inspired, and yet somehow I fell in enjoy with Foxers’ lace boxer shorts the moment I saw them on one of their stockists’ internet sites. Perhaps it goes back to my old penchant for clothing in unexpected fabrics, like lace and silk zip-up hoodies.

The lace is beautiful, with flowers outlined in a thread that has a beautiful sheen to it – it stands out specifically effectively in the Fuschia colourway. The Watercolour striped trim on that one particular is cool and colourful and just tends to make this set so entertaining to appear at! I also love that each shorts have bows at the back – another unexpected details, simply because they’re always at the front proper?

The black boxers have the Foxers branding on the waistband. Normally I’m not a fan of logo waistbands (which are coming back in style proper now) but with the black embroidery on black elastic it’s not an in-your-face feature. Subtly accomplished like this, I in fact very like it!

Verdict: six / ten

foxers-lace-bralette

Gorgeous lace!

foxers-pink-lace-cropped-camisole-review

Match

I’m a UK 6 / 30E and received the boxers in a size XS and the bralette in a size S. The boxers fit me totally perfectly and in line with Foxers’ size chart.

With a 27″ ribcage, I could have gone with either the S or M bralette. There are cup size recommendations but honestly they’re meaningless with out a band size, so I went for the S which was closest to my dress size (it says approx. US four-6 which is a UK 8-ten). And, yay, it fits me perfectly also! The size chart says ‘A-C cup size (about)’ for the size S and like I stated, I’m a 30E, so the bralette sizing is far more flexible than Foxers may realise.

Verdict: 9 / 10

foxers-lace-boxers-review

foxers-boxers-in-lace-review

Building

Foxers’ lace pieces are made from a 90% nylon, 10% elastane blend so it has a lot of stretch. It’s also a lovely, soft lace that feels a bit spongy if you bunch it up – wonderfully comfy to put on! They each have gussets too, constantly a must.

The bralette is actually more of a cropped camisole (and that is the category it is listed beneath on the web site) so it’s not constructed to provide assistance – the band is not especially tight for instance – but it’s all nicely sewn with each other. The only issue I do not like is that the rings and sliders on the straps are plastic, which tends to break sooner or later.

Verdict: 8 / 10

foxers-black-lace-boxer-shorts-review

Bobbling at the gusset, sadly :(

Bobbling at the gusset, sadly 🙁

Durability

Regrettably, as beautiful and comfy as the lace is, it’s not really tough-wearing. It pulls easily and has bobbled fairly badly at the gusset and sides on the boxers, so I’m guessing this is where they were rubbing against the seams of the shorts I’ve worn regularly this summer. If you’re a skirts and dresses sort of particular person (which I am, typically) they’re possibly fine since the bralette hasn’t bobbled any, but if you prefer trousers then you’ll likely find Foxers’ cotton boyshorts longer-lasting.

One particular point I do like even though is that the black boxer shorts have an embroidered, not printed, waistband. I know from doing my fiancé’s laundry that printed elastic fades quickly, but you know embroidery is going to final and final!

Verdict: 5 / 10

foxers-pink-lace-cropped-camisole-bralette

foxers-bralette-review

Worth for Funds

Foxers’ lace boxer shorts and bralettes come in tons of colourways and they all price $ 32 which is about £24.50 or 29€ at current exchange prices. Despite the fabric getting significantly less sturdy than I’d hoped for, I still feel that’s a excellent price tag for each pieces. They’re enjoyable, they’re super comfy, and they’re also from an independent brand that manufactures ethically.

Verdict: 7 / 10

Final Thoughts

The Foxers philosophy is “stylish, comfy, and multi-functional”, and I believe the 3 pieces I got to attempt out sum that up completely. You can wear this set as lingerie but also as sleepwear, it’s that comfy. The bralette’s band is also extended sufficient that it can be tucked into a high-waisted skirt on me, so if you’re a bit far more daring perhaps you could even wear it as outerwear too!

See all lace boxers here and all lace bralettes right here.

I’d adore to know what you consider of Foxers, particularly if you have purchased from them in the previous. Which of their many, several colourways would you get the bralette or boxers in?

Assessment: Sugar Lace Lingerie Lilac Dream Set & Ruffle Babydoll

Author: Eliza

Disclosure: This set was a individual obtain, not a brand sample. This blog post consists of affiliate hyperlinks.

If you have any knowledge with handmade lingerie brands, you have probably heard of Sugar Lace Lingerie. I had, and, truth be told, ahead of my 1st Sugar Lace order I was skeptical. Folks raved about the brand in a way that seemed as well good to be accurate. Even if the pieces are as lovely as they look online, I thought, they couldn’t possibly be as great as I’d heard.

Nicely, now I’ve learnt my lesson. I believe the hype.

I placed an order for both the Lilac Dream Set and the Lilac Ruffle Babydoll on the tail-end of this previous May possibly, which arrived at the start of July. As soon as I pulled my new items out of the packaging, I fell in love. I was immediately struck with the worry that they wouldn’t match, thinking there was no way they could be as excellent as they seemed, no way I could really personal such beautiful clothes. But, to my immense pleasure, the pieces have been fantastic in every single way.

Sugar Lace Lingerie blog review

Look: ten/10

Both the babydoll and the set are specifically as the brand name would suggest: sweet, fun, and coyly sexy. The pastel lilac colour is gorgeous—it’s what initially drew me to these pieces. The details are spectacular, too: glossy satin buttons, ruffled sides, and lavender mesh on the Lilac Dream set come collectively to generate a dreamy, delicate, sugary-sweet appear.

Although not sold as a total set, the Lilac Ruffle Babydoll matches the Lavender Dream set to a tee. It comes with optional marabou puffs for the ideal extra touch of softness and luxury. Adorable ruffles – a recurring ingredient in Sugar Lace merchandise – add a playful element to every single piece. All round, I locate Sugar Lace to be consistently original, a really exclusive brand that mixes vintage types with contemporary components.

 

Sugar Lace Lingerie Lilac Dream Set review

Match: 9/10

I do not generally put on bralettes due to the lack of support, but often I see a single as well beautiful to pass up, huge bust or not. The Lilac Dream longline bralette was 1 of these, so I had it custom-sized for a 32E (sizes variety from XS-XL, but Adrianna, the lady behind Sugar Lace, was content to custom-size it for me free of charge). It does match me completely, but, as expected, there’s minimal help and my boobs have a tendency to fall to them bottom of the longline. As this is my usual issue with bralettes, I wasn’t surprised or even genuinely disappointed, which is why I’ve nevertheless offered the fit an excellent rating overall.

As for the Lilac Dreams briefs, I’m a UK size eight and the Medium are a best match. For me, Sugar Lace is a lot far more about beauty than utility. It is lingerie to lounge in, not necessarily one thing I’ll put on out and about.

I ordered the babydoll in size Large, per Adrianna’s suggestions, and it fits perfectly. The elastic comes in tight enough that the prime fits perfectly without digging in. Prior to ordering a babydoll, especially if you are a larger bust size, I recommend shooting Sugar Lace a message to double-check sizing.

Construction: 10/10

The craftsmanship on these pieces is exceptional. There isn’t a thread out of location, and none of the fabric digs in or itches. Each button and ruffle is very carefully, sturdily sewed on.

Client Service: 8/10

I had a handful of concerns about fit and sizing, and although the responses were very useful when they did come, I wasn’t wholly impressed by the speed – and, in some circumstances, the lack – of response. Even so, much more importantly, the items have been exactly as I had requested. There had been a couple of optional details I requested – straps rather than a halterneck ribbon on the Lavender Dreams set for a bit of extra assistance, and marabou puffs on the babydoll – and these were executed beautifully on the final item.

I also appreciated the response to my inquiry about ethical sourcing for the marabou puffs. As a common rule, I attempt to keep away from fashion that makes use of animal products. So, even though these puffs are drop-dead cute, I wanted to do some study prior to deciding on them. Adrianna was very open to the question and not only did she give me the name of the website she gets them from, but she also informed me that she’s always on the lookout for more ethical options. I was impressed by her transparency, which is rare in the style industry.

Worth for Money: ten/10

When I placed this order it was the most funds I’d ever spent on lingerie at one particular time, as I’m on a student’s price range. But I’d been eyeing these products for months, so when there was a 20% off flash sale, I took a leap and placed my order. It came out to about £120 including shipping with the discount – regular costs are $ 76 (~£58 / 67€) for the Lilac Ruffle Babydoll and $ 94 (~£72 / 83€ ) for the Lilac Dream Set.

I’m content to say that I’m so happy with the resulting goods that I would absolutely purchase a lot more at full value. The high quality, craftsmanship, and detail behind these pieces make them well worth it. Nonetheless, if you are like me and you are on the lookout for sales, follow the Sugar Lace Instagram page where flash sales are sometimes announced. There’s presently a sale on the brand’s Cheeky Cactus Knickers.

Would I Recommend It?

Yes! Sugar Lace Lingerie makes me feel beautiful and glamorous, and these goods are some of my favourite lingerie.

Clearly, Sugar Lace has stolen my heart. What about you? Have you fallen in really like with the pastels and ruffles, or do you prefer much more utilitarian underthings?

Overview: Purrfect Pineapples Kitty Black & Gold Lace Bra Set

Author: Eliza

Disclosure: This set was a private acquire, not a brand sample. This weblog post consists of affiliate hyperlinks.

There’s one thing special about getting lingerie from a one-woman production. I like to support tiny businesses, and it’s even better when that organization was started by a lady, for females, and every item is ethically created. That was why, when I stumbled across the Purrfect Pineapples Etsy web page, I knew I had to have 1 of their sets. This kitten-print bra and panty set was also cute to pass up.

Appearance: ten/ten

The most striking portion of any Purrfect Pineapples piece is the fabric. On this set, the cat print is adorable, even though the black lace offers it an edge. Gold undertones add further sparkle and assist marry the orange in the print with the rest of the design and style. Overall, I was captivated by how cute and coy this set is — I adore the cheeky kitten on the underwear — while nonetheless becoming sexy and fun.

In contrast to numerous pieces where ruffles seem dainty, right here they add a girly touch with no making it seem fragile. Purrfect Pineapples claims to draw inspiration from its alternatively-styled, tattooed models, and this set completely complements that counter-culture. It’s adorable sufficient for any individual to wear, but also has a distinctive edge that makes it special and thrilling.

Building: 9/ten

The craftsmanship of this set is excellent. Each the bra and panties are very good high quality, and after a handful of wears and washes they look as good as new. The fabric is thicker than expected, which makes it really feel tough. I expect this set to last a long time.

I haven’t had any problems with the bra straps, but they do seem much less sturdy than the rest of the piece due to how thin they are. They’re slightly thinner than the typical bra strap. On somebody with a smaller bust, I doubt this would present a dilemma. Nonetheless, for larger-busted girls like myself, this set would advantage from the added help of thicker straps.

purrfect pineapple cat print bralette review

Fit: six/ten

The fit was the primary problem I had with this set.  Both the bra and the panties have been just tight enough to be uncomfortable following wearing for an extended period of time.

Despite giving Purrfect Pineapples my bra size upon buy, the band is tight. I was a 34DD before I ordered it, so I requested that size. More not too long ago I was measured as a 32DDD (UK 32E), yet the band nonetheless feels tight. It’s comfy adequate to wear in the course of the day, but not comfy sufficient to sleep in.

As a US size four (UK 8), I typically order panties in a size small, at times medium, but I virtually in no way have to size up to a huge. However, the medium panties were tight on me. According to the Purrfect Pineapples size chart, the medium panty is produced for a 34-37 inch hip, and my hips are 36 inches. However they’re tight enough that, right after wearing them for a day, there are imprints on my skin. It could be worth it to size up if you are on the tail-end of a size.

On the optimistic side, the wireless bra lends far more support for fuller busts than most bralettes I’ve encountered. This is due to the thickness of the reduced-cup, which is lined with cotton to give added support and a tiny amount of push-up. It offers a much more flattering look than some of the much more flimsy bralettes I’ve worn.

Buyer Service: 10/ten

I enjoy becoming in a position to directly get in touch with the creator of the newest addition to my lingerie wardrobe. There’s one thing so intimate about knowing the individual on the other side of that e-mail will quickly be making a function of art specifically to my measurements. And that’s exactly what the lady behind Purrfect Pineapples, Erika, did for me.

The client service was excellent. Erika responded quickly and politely to every single question I had. She was willing to custom-size the garment for no additional charge (I ordered by means of her Etsy web page, exactly where there is no written policy about extra fees — on her web site, it states that she does charge additional for custom sizing). Soon after I notified her that I had mistakenly entered the incorrect shipping address, she right away ameliorated the scenario, and didn’t seem at all troubled. I was pleased to do enterprise with her.

Value for Cash: 8/ten

Overall, the set was just beneath £90. That’s not specifically a steep value in the lingerie enterprise, but as a university student it was somewhat of an investment for me. I am disappointed that, even soon after providing Purrfect Pineapples my bra size and following their size chart, each pieces have been slightly tight.

However, I’m quite satisfied with my obtain. It’s unlike any other set I personal, and it is just adorable! I’m willing to shell out a tiny further funds if it implies supporting a tiny organization, and the superb customer service I received produced me even more confident in my option.

Purrfect Pineapples panty review

Would I Recommend?

Yes! This set will certainly add a special edge to your boudoir. If you do not adore the cat print but nevertheless want one thing enjoyable and various, Purrfect Pineapples has this very same style in many diverse prints, and Erika can also custom-design and style pieces with the fabric of your decision. Even so, read her size chart cautiously before a obtain, and contemplate sizing up if you are in-among or practically in-between sizes.

How do you really feel about prints like this? What are your experiences with small-business lingerie?

Assessment: H&M Lace Bodysuit

Author: Estelle

Disclosure: I bought this bodysuit with my personal income and was not asked to overview it.

Back at Christmas I managed to pack a suitcase with almost no lingerie in it for a 2-week trip, so I had to do a bit of rapid buying when we arrived in Spain. After dragging my poor fiancé about all of the common Spanish lingerie shops (Oysho, Women’s Secret, Tezenis, Yamamay, Change…) and truly not seeing something I liked, I headed to excellent ol’ H&ampM where I knew I’d locate one thing worth acquiring.

Despite the fact that not somewhere I usually lingerie-shop due to the fact of their size variety, I’ve often really like H&ampM’s lingerie section – the brand utilizes a lot of lace for one issue, which is always a plus in my books. And I did certainly discover the nicest thing I’d noticed in the shops all day – as quickly as I attempted this bodysuit on I knew I’d be purchasing it!

H&ampM burgundy bodysuit

Appearance

Basically referred to as “Lace Body”, it is produced from all-more than sheer mesh, overlaid with lace. Four panels all converge at the waist, topped with a narrow band of satin, which helps to define and emphasise the waistline.

Of course, you’re not going to locate luxury laces in H&ampM, but I identified this 1 actually lovely for the cost. I adore the sweet tiny lace caplets on the shoulders, and the trim around the legline – I also found the fairly higher reduce genuinely flattering, and I’ve constantly thought I hated higher leglines!

This piece also functions fairly well as outerwear. The double-layered mesh/lace front is just opaque enough, even though I’d almost certainly wear a bra underneath if I had been to put on it out of the residence without a jacket.

Verdict: 6 / ten

H&ampM burgundy lace body

Construction

The mesh employed is super soft and the crotch is lined with one hundred% cotton, which tends to make this incredibly comfortable to wear. I like it beneath a robe for lazy lounging around on the weekends.

I’m also very glad to see a poppered crotch, +one hundred points for practicality! The stitching is neat and feels sturdy – I’ve always identified H&ampM clothing to be much better-made than other higher-street budget brands like, say, Primark for example.

Verdict: 8 / ten

H&ampM burgundy lingerie bodysuit review low res

H&ampM burgundy lace body review

Match

I bought a European size 36 or UK size eight. It is an superb match on me and the fabric has a lot of stretch to accommodate distinct shapes and bust sizes, even though I would say you’ll possibly locate it also quick in the torso if you are very tall – I’m 5’3 and the crotch fastening has a single length setting.

Also worth a mention is the fact that this bodysuit has zero support at the bust.

Verdict: 8 / ten

H&ampM burgundy lace bodysuit low res

H&ampM burgundy body lace

Durability

H&ampM’s lace bodysuit is machine washable on a warm setting, so it is effortless to care for. I’ve gotten a lot of wear out of it in a brief space of time (it was the only thing I ended up purchasing in Spain, alongside the one bodysuit and bra set I’d remembered to take) and it’s held up wonderfully.

A single of the clear giveaways of cheap lace is that it has a tendency to bobble really swiftly, but this still looks more or much less brand new!

Verdict: 10 / ten

H&ampM lingerie review

Value for Cash

I paid €24.99 for this bodysuit – it’s £19.99 in the UK and $ 29.99 in the US.

It’s properly-produced, tough and pretty, and while it may not be as fancy as the lingerie I’m generally reviewing right here, it is worth every penny of its value tag. It wouldn’t have looked out of location someplace like Ann Summers for double the price.

Verdict: 10 / 10

H&ampM bodysuit lace

Final Thoughts

I consider this is a beautiful small piece that appears and feels slightly much more pricey than it really is. If you’re after a bodysuit that is comfy, appealing and very cost-effective, give this 1 a go!

Sadly, the burgundy colour is now sold out on-line, even so it is also accessible in black and powder (a light cream). Sizes left in stock range from a UK ten to 16 / US six to 12.

What do you feel of this lace bodysuit? And what are your thoughts on H&ampM lingerie in basic?

Splurge or Save? Agent Provocateur Vs. Ann Summers Red Satin & Pink Lace Bra

Author: Estelle

Disclaimer: This weblog post consists of affiliate links.

As quickly as I saw this Ann Summers Bette bra, it produced me feel of L’Agent’s Marisela bra – I thought the exciting red/pink might turn out to be a new colourway for the Marisela this season, which has so far been released in a slew of diverse clashing colour schemes such as blue/pink, teal/purple and mint/red.

As an alternative, it showed up at L’Agent’s parent brand Agent Provocateur, on this new-in Lucie bra. Lucie is the least expensive bra in Agent Provocateur’s present range, and as such it’s fairly easy – sleek silk topped with a band of Leavers lace. It is available in 32B by way of 36E.

Ann Summers’ Bette bra has the exact same plunge shape and padding, but with a wider lace flourish. The main difference is the fabric quality – polyester satin rather than silk satin, and a fairly but generic lace. It comes in a really similar size range of 32A by means of 38DD.

Personally, practically nothing about the Agent Provocateur Lucie bra kills me, and I’m drawn to the wider lace trim on Ann Summers’ Bettie. Also, I’ve been truly impressed with the top quality of my current Ann Summers purchases, although I haven’t seen this particular bra up close.

So for me, this one is absolutely a ‘Save’. How about you, which of the two bras would you go for?
