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

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?

Overview: La Lilouche Adelle Bra & Lana Tie-Side Knickers

Author: Estelle

Disclosure: I purchased this lingerie with my personal funds and was not asked to evaluation it. This blog post contains affiliate links.

If you’ve been following me on social media for any length of time you have almost certainly seen me swooning over La Lilouche on numerous an occasion. Liya’s styles seamless blend the fairly and the risqué and are luxurious in the accurate sense of the word, with breathtaking focus to detail and only the finest materials utilized. Add to that the truth that La Lilouche is totally handmade and properly, there’s not really anything a lot more I could ask of my underthings!

I’ve been meaning to purchase from La Lilouche for completely ages, so when lingerie blogger Write Me Negative Checks tweeted that she had a sale on it took me all of fifteen minutes to location an order. Getting sample sale items, they’re no longer offered but the sale is nonetheless on with other beautiful items still in stock! I’ve linked to some equivalent La Lilouche designs at the end of this post.

La Lilouche luxury lingerie review

Look

I bought this set for the bra. The knickers are lovely but, nicely, appear at that bra! It’s extraordinary. The ‘cups’ are made from a fine, translucent (i.e. extremely revealing!) tulle with a swathe of sparkling crystal gems hand-applied across the bottom.

As if this feature alone wasn’t striking enough, the straps are gathered in at the shoulder with oversized bows made from peachy-pink silk. They are attached to tiny silk ‘tubes’ so you can slide them up and down, wearing the bows at the front, atop the shoulder, or component way down the back. It’s all finished off with an underbust band of ruched silk in a various orangey-pink.

The knickers are not actually meant to match this bra, but like the bra they also feature a mish-mash of shades that range from coral to blush pink, so the two perform completely with each other as a set. Combining super soft silk, ruffled chiffon and thick lace (which has been cautiously cut and appliquéd on to comply with the lace’s pattern, even though this function is mainly hidden by the ruffles above it), it’s just a actually beautiful, detailed and decadent design and style.

Verdict: 10 / ten

La Lilouche lingerie review

Construction

La Lilouche is handmade in Israel, and the top quality is excellent. It all starts with premium-top quality fabrics which are sewn together beautifully – think factors like double-sided, tapered silk bows, rather than the satin ribbon you’d locate on a more affordable set. Even the gusset is lined with silk, speak about luxury!

A lot of threads do keep unravelling from the chiffon ruffles on the knickers nevertheless. It’s not quite, but it does not seem to be affecting the building in any meaningful way (the ruffles are not falling off or something).

Verdict: 8 / 10

La Lilouche Adelle bra review

Match

I bought the Adelle bra in a size M (32D/34C/36B) and the Lana knickers in an XS (UK 6-8 / US 2-four). The knickers are a ideal fit. The bra is a great fit but as a 30E a size S might have been better the straps are a tad also lengthy for me and often slip off my shoulders.

Due to their design these cups don’t truly have a size as such, it’s just loose fabric that sits on prime of the breast (and consequently does not provide something in the way of support). They’re super flexible on sizing and the M would still fit an individual a excellent couple of cup sizes bigger than me, so for other bras in this style I wouldn’t assume you’re sized out if you are only 1 or two cup sizes above what La Lilouche recommends.

Verdict: eight / 10

La Lilouche Lana tie side knickers review

Durability

No surprises that this bra set is strictly hand-wash only. I don’t even dare squeeze the water out of the bejewelled bra cups when I’m carried out soaking it, but luckily the fine tulle dries super rapidly.

Regardless, the diamanté gems do fall off, an typical of about 1-2 every single time I put on it. I do not know exactly where they’re going – they’re not in the set’s storage bag, they’re not in sink post-washing. Perhaps I am just leaving a small trail of glittering crystals in my wake when I put on this bra, like the fairy goddess that I feel like when I wear it! :)

I did buy myself some coral-coloured crystals on the web to repair the bra but when they arrived they looked awfully low-cost compared to the ones Liya employed originally. I contacted her to ask where I could get a lot more of the same, and alternatively she was super lovely and sent me some replacements for cost-free! That is wonderful client service, especially taking into consideration I didn’t even buy this set at complete price tag.

So in summary, I’d say La Lilouche’s diamanté-topped lingerie designs are pieces you will require to manage with the utmost care. I’m not saying it is poor quality, I’m saying it is incredibly delicate – it’s not for you unless you’re prepared to invest a tiny time in the gentlest of hand-washing and the occasional repair job.

Verdict: 4 / 10

La Lilouche Lana silk knickers review

Worth for Income

I’m not confident what the original RRP of these two pieces is, even though I do know it is drastically much more than what I paid in the sample sale. This set expense me $ 40 (~£30 / ~36€) for the bra and $ 30 (~£23 / ~27€) for the knickers, which was an amazing price for such a unique, gorgeous, ethically-created and luxurious style!

What ever the full cost was although, I do think this set is worth it. Comparable La Lilouche designs retail for about £70-100 a piece, and whilst that is certainly not cheap, it is at the reduce finish of what luxury lingerie powerhouse Agent Provocateur charges – and I personally think La Lilouche is the a lot more luxurious brand! Not to mention becoming ethically handmade.

Verdict: 10 / ten

la lilouche review

Final Thoughts

La Lilouche’s Adelle bra is a function of art, pure and straightforward. It’s up there with my Agent Provocateur Verronika corset and Pleasure State Couture Glimmer set as some of the most stunning and luxurious lingerie I’ve ever had the pleasure of owning. If you’re going to acquire one of La Lilouche’s crystal- or bead-encrusted styles nonetheless, be conscious they’ll need to have some TLC to stay that beautiful.

I wish I have been writing this evaluation while it was nonetheless offered to buy, but she does have some existing bras in a equivalent style – verify out the Fiona bra, cream Belle bra, black Belle bra and Veronika bra. For other knickers with deluxe silk tie-sides, take a peek at her Alexina and Tonni designs. There’s also 1 pair of high-waisted knickers from the Lana range nonetheless on sale right here!

What do you feel of this bra designs, and the knickers? Have you ever bought something from La Lilouche, or wanted to?

Overview: Playful Promises Miranda Absinthe Peep-Hole Bra & Ouvert Brief

Author: Eliza

Disclosure: This set was a personal obtain, not a brand sample.

The Playful Promises summer sale not too long ago ended, which signifies it is time to show off some new goodies! The Miranda Absinthe bra and ouvert short have been on sale for just £15 each, and even though originally I had been eyeing the set in black and ivory, I couldn’t turn down a cost like that. At 1st I was a tiny skeptical of the set in this colour, but I’m happily surprised by how much I really like it!

Playful Promises Miranda bra set review

Appearance: 8/ten

I chose the ouvert Miranda short more than the common one due to the fact I wanted it to match the peek-a-boo theme of the bra. The openings on both the bra and briefs are super fun, and not at all subtle – there’s nothing coy about this set!

The lighting in the photographs on the Playful Promises internet site tends to make the precise colour difficult to figure out. I anticipated the set to be more of a light blue, while it is really a pale, electric mint green. Though not exactly what I had anticipated, the absinthe green is intriguing, and the much more I wear this set, the much more I adore the way it looks.

Playful Promises Miranda peephole bra

Building: ten/10

1 of my favourite bra styles is unlined and unpadded with underwire. It creates a lovely mixture of comfort and support. The Miranda Absinthe Peep-Hole bra embodies this style completely. It’s from Playful Promises’ DD-G fuller bust collection, and maintaining in mind the want for additional help for bigger sizes, the straps are slightly thicker than on the average bra. The underwire contributes to the shape and help, and the mesh fabric is breathable and light. Following a few wears, the set seems to be high quality.

I may confine these briefs exclusively to the bedroom, but the bra is comfortable adequate that, with the proper layering, I would wear it out for the duration of the day as properly.

Fit: Bra: 10/ten, Briefs: 7/10

If this bra is any indication, Playful Promises excels in the DD+ variety. I ordered my typical bra size, a 32E, and it fits perfectly. There’s no squeezing or gapping against the skin, and it gives a modest lift although maintaining a all-natural shape.

Sadly, the briefs didn’t work out really as nicely. They fit accurate to size about the hips, but the ouvert middle is awkward. It’s as well wide for my body, so it hangs strangely and bunches a small close to the front and rear of the opening.

It is also pertinent to note that, as opposed to some of the far more subtle ouvert knickers I own, the opening on the Miranda brief is very apparent when worn, as it covers the majority of the knicker. It’s extremely dramatic, which can be best for the right occasion!

My overall suggestions on the briefs would be to take into account how massive the opening is. If you’re petite like me, it might be as well wide for your hips. Either stick with the common Miranda briefs or be ready to return them if needed. Regardless of the imperfect match, I do like the briefs and I am maintaining them.

Value for Money: ten/10

I bought this set for £30 total, which was a steal! One particular great issue about Playful Promises is that they have a handful of major sales a year, so as long as you are willing to wait you can grab pieces for a huge discount, typically less than half their regular price tag. I also identified a coupon for totally free international shipping on-line, which cut the cost even additional.

I most likely wouldn’t have bought this set at full value, as both the style and colour are slightly uncommon for my tastes. Nonetheless, if you really like these pieces, even at full price tag they’re not a undesirable deal. It’s a comfortable set of excellent high quality, it’s entertaining, and it’s full of surprises!

Would I Advocate?

Yes! Playful Promises’ DD+ bras are a touchstone for anybody in that size range. I’ll certainly be purchasing more from them in the future.

Did you order something throughout Playful Promises’ summer sale? Has any person else had strange experiences with the fit of ouvert knickers?

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.

purrfect pineapples cat bra set review

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.

Overview: Chaffree Anti-Chafing Underwear

Disclosure: These items had been sent to me cost-free of charge for assessment purposes. All opinions are my own.

IMG_5271

As somebody who has never had a thigh gap, I can not bear in mind a time in my life where I wasn’t actively searching for solutions to alleviate chafing or as I affectionately call it, ‘chub rub.’ My thighs touch year-round so whilst my skirts might get shorter in the summer time, I am at risk for chafing fairly a lot any time there is not fabric amongst my thighs. I have attempted almost everything from powders and sprays to medicated soap, but what I have identified generally functions best for me is a thin, breathable pair of shorts that I can put on over underwear but underneath clothes. When I discovered that there was a brand that produced underwear made to avoid chafing, I knew I necessary to try them out!

Chaffree is a UK-based underwear brand created especially to decrease sweat and chaffing. The brand’s founder, Amanda Whaley, came up with the idea primarily based on her own knowledge and frustration with hosiery and nylon-primarily based underwear that left her skin irritated and even bleeding at occasions (a feeling that I am all too familiar with). Whaley wanted to generate a solution that could be worn by a variety of men and women regardless of size or gender and as a outcome, Chaffree gives women’s knickbockers, briefs and boxer briefs as well as men’s boxer shorts. Both options are accessible in sizes S-3XL.

IMG_5297

Chaffree Briefs with Full Waist Height and Wide Leg Opening

At first glance, I was disappointed that the size variety did not extend previous a 3XL (usually a size 22/24) nevertheless, I was pleasantly surprised that according to their size chart, a women’s 3XL fits a US size 30/32/34 with up to a 56” waist. Primarily based on this details, their 3XL fits closer to a women’s size 4X or 5X. A closer look at their size chart reveals a significantly a lot more inclusive spectrum than the S-3XL sizing suggests but I cannot assist but wonder how a lot of 4X or 5X people may possibly see that size variety listed and assume they are excluded from this solution.

Despite the fact that I would generally order a size 3X/4X in underwear based on the brand, I ordered a size XL/2XL primarily based on the size chart and the fit was perfect. They are also incredibly stretchy which I think contributes to the brand’s inclusive sizing.  Besides size, there’s a lot to customize when it comes to Chaffree products. You get to pick the color, waist height, leg height or leg opening based on the style.  As someone who is plus size but only 5’1”, these customizations are main for me. I tried out both the women’s knickerbockers with the complete waist height and short leg height and the women’s briefs with the complete waist height and wide leg opening. They are available in four colors including white, black, pink and mocha. Because the majority of my skirts are black, I picked black.

IMG_5273

A closer look at the CoolMax fabric of the Chaffree Knickerbockers

The fabric content material on both pairs is the same: 77 % polyester/CoolMax, 15 % polyamide, and eight percent elastane. To the touch, the fabric feels lighter and undoubtedly less scratchy than other seamless polyester underwear that I have attempted. But there’s definitely far more to this fabric than meets the eye (or in my case, the touch). The CoolMax fabric was developed particularly for put on for the duration of high exertion sports to wick away sweat. While there’s very a science to CoolMax, my understanding is that the design and style of the fibers enables moisture to evaporate rapidly. If you appear closely at the fabric, there’s a patterning to the design and style that does give the underwear a far more athletic feel than I would typically gravitate to but this is an aesthetic sacrifice that I am surely prepared to make.

Even with my favored cotton bike shorts that I typically put on to prevent chafing, I am nevertheless not entirely irritation or moisture-cost-free among the thighs so I was undoubtedly curious to test out how CoolMax stood up to my higher exertion chub rub. I wore the knickerbockers two different full days both times below skirts — 1 was a pretty leisurely day in Mexico and the other was a higher activity day spent moving boxes up and down a few flights of methods. On my leisurely day in Mexico, the knickerbockers seemed like the excellent substitution for my cotton bike shorts. It was 90+ degrees and I didn’t sweat at all. In reality, I forgot I was wearing the shorts. But on the more active day moving boxes, I became conscious of how significantly the shorts rode up my thighs when I sat down and stood up. I discovered myself pulling them down and adjusting them. While I nonetheless didn’t experience moisture, I wished the shorts would have stayed in location.

IMG_5286

Chaffree Knickerbockers in Complete Waist Height and Quick Leg Length

Functionally, I was a lot more excited for the knickerbockers but aesthetically, I ended up actually falling in enjoy with the match and cut of the briefs. Although I know some other plus size people might expertise chafing at their underwear line, mine is really centralized to my inner thighs so the briefs did not necessarily help with my chafing. I am often searching for higher cut underwear that hit at or slightly above my natural waist and don’t roll down. The briefs delivered on each accounts. I found myself taking a million mirror selfies in the briefs just due to the fact I loved the way they looked that significantly.

IMG_5317

The Chaffree Briefs from the back

Each designs are tagless and feature the fabric content material and care guidelines printed in the back inside portion of the underwear. In terms of comfort, this is enormous. But the brand name, Chaffree, is printed on the front proper of the underwear. It’s excellent for branding — not as fantastic for my selfies. This is minor but something I noticed as a difference amongst other seamless choices I’ve worn in the past.

IMG_5316

Selfie ready in the Chaffree Briefs!

Overall, I am impressed with each of the Chaffree products I attempted. I felt that the underwear delivered on its sweat-totally free guarantee and offered a desirable look alongside that functionality. The customization and inclusive sizing make this a fantastic alternative for folks spanning a wide variety of body varieties.

Overview: Playful Promises Cordelia Bra & Knickers

Author: Estelle

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

In case you haven’t heard, Playful Promises is performing some rather exciting issues with their size range proper now – initial, they introduced a full-bust variety for DD-G cups, and then very quickly afterwards announced a plus-size collection that will cater to 38B-42G and UK 18-24 sizes.

I’ve always really liked Playful Promises and I’ve bought a fair bit from them more than the years, but only soft-cupped pieces considering that they didn’t genuinely make my size. So I was really excited to hear about their full-bust launch!

The red Cordelia was my favourite set from the variety by far (since, red), and I couldn’t resist when it went on sale in February. Playful Promises’ summer sale has just launched so till June 15th it’s lowered from £85 to £30 for the set when again, like the mint-green version.

Playful Promises Cordelia review

Look

Black lace and the colour red are possibly my two favourite factors when it comes to lingerie aesthetics, so needless to say I was captivated by Cordelia!

I particularly like the eyelash-edged scallops which adorn the front of the bra and knickers – on the knickers, they generate a subtle, kitschy heart shape, which is all the a lot more excellent in the romantic red colourway. Sadly even though, these scallops do not stay in spot for very long, at least not on me – the ones trimming the knicker and atop the straps tend to flop over forwards, and the two at the centre-leading of the cup fold more than inwards. I’ve tried reshaping them while damp but nope, they just don’t want to lie flat. At least the two over the straps can be fixed in location with a couple of fast stitches.

The other finishing touches are all extremely lovely though – rose-centred bows, ruched satin straps and gathered elastic straps around the hips.

Verdict: 6 / ten

Playful Promises Cordelia bra set review

Building

The bra and knickers are each actually well-made, using fabrics that all look good and feel soft to the touch. The bra has a three-part cup that is lightly lined, so it gives a lot of support and a rounded shape for DD+ sizes.

Verdict: 8 / 10

Playful Promises Cordelia bra review

Match

Initially, I ordered Playful Promises’ Cordelia bra in a 30DD. I have a tendency to wear a 30E in unlined bras and a 30DD in most things molded/padded, simply because my shallow-on-best shape signifies that pre-shaped cups frequently stand up and away from my physique rather of lying flat – going down a cup size fixes this concern.

Even so, the 30DD was gaping massively on me which I’ve in no way had occur ahead of, so I exchanged for a 28DD (equivalent to a cup-size smaller sized, and with a tighter band). Yet the 28DD cups nonetheless gape on me. Only a little bit, but I’d favor but one more cup size down if it had been accessible. Some bras are constructed with full-on-top shapes in mind, this bra is truly, truly created for full-on-top girls. Here’s a overview by Scarlet’s Letter, for contrast.

The 28 band although fits correct to size, as it’s tighter than the 30s I generally purchase. I think I probably spoke too quickly when I attempted a 28 band for the initial time and declared they have been certainly not my size – the Cordelia bra is way much more comfy than that one was. I’d probably go for a 28-band over a 30 from Playful Promises in the future.

Oh, and the knickers! I bought an XS / UK size eight and they fit correct to size and very comfortably.

Verdict: 5 / 10

Playful Promises Cordelia knickers review

Durability

Playful Promises’ Cordelia bra set is hand wash only, and is nevertheless in ideal condition after several wears and washes over the past three months.

Verdict: 9 / ten

Playful Promises lingerie review

Worth for Income

The Cordelia bra retails for £55 and the knickers for £30, even though on sale appropriate now (and the cost I paid) they’re both £15 – an incredible deal on the bra especially!

Sadly, this bra just isn’t produced for my physique shape and I wouldn’t acquire it once again, but if you are a full-on-best girl it’s a gorgeous and effectively-made set that is worth the money.

Verdict: 7 / ten*

*I have decided from now on to price my testimonials against the original RRP, as that appears a fairer way to examine purchases, some of which may have been on sale and some not. Earlier critiques are all rated based on the price tag I really paid.

Playful Promises review - Cordelia DD+ bra

Final Thoughts

I was super excited about acquiring this bra set, but with the mixture of the slight gaping and the constantly folding-more than scallops, it just does not appear quite how I’d pictured it would on me. I nevertheless consider it is a quite set, which is why I kept it, but I’d have returned it had I paid complete-value.

Nevertheless, as heartbreaking as it is discovering that a piece you’ve lusted soon after just won’t operate with your physique shape, it’s fantastic that there’s one more entirely beautiful lingerie selection out there for girls who do have full-on-leading shapes. And for just £15 appropriate now too!

What do you feel of Playful Promises’ Cordelia bra and knickers set? Have you bought something from their new DD-G range?

Overview: Silent Assembly Elidi Bra & Cheeki Short

Author: Estelle

Disclosure: I purchased this set with my own money and was not asked to review it. This blog post contains affiliate hyperlinks.

Every single now and then a lingerie brand comes along that is performing something genuinely diverse. No matter whether it operates out or it doesn’t, I admire brands that are willing to experiment and take design and style risks.

Silent Assembly is one particular such brand, thanks to their unique Curvessence technologies, which is an alternative to the ubiquitous metal underwires in typical bras.

Standard underwires are flat, and get stretched into shape when you clasp the band behind your back. Silent Assembly’s Curvessence is a nylon ‘rib’ that is closer in shape to the actual curve of a physique – the video on this page explains it fairly effectively if you’re getting problems picturing what I mean.

Even though I do not personally discover underwires uncomfortable (95% of them anyway), my curiosity was piqued. Could a Silent Assembly bra be even a lot more comfortable to put on than I was utilized to?

I purchased this bra by way of flash-sales site MySale about four months ago now, and am writing this evaluation right now simply because their Silent Assembly sale is now back on. You can purchase this set and other designs at crazy low prices till Tuesday only!

Silent Assembly bra set review

Look

I bought the Elidi bra and cheeki brief in ‘ballard blue’, which I believed was the most unusual of Silent Assembly’s designs. There are lots of smooth contour bras and lacy ones, but this one particular stood out to me thanks to its abundance of chiffon flowers .

Every of the flowers is centred with tiny silver studs and sparkling Swarovski crystals, and I enjoy that they’ve been somewhat randomly scattered across the bra and brief, rather than placed symmetrically.

The fabrics look high-good quality, from the slightly pearlescent Italian stretch chiffon to the semi-sheen satin straps – even though the hardware on them does seem to be plastic. Overall, I locate it a pretty and unusual bra set.

Verdict: 7 / 10

Silent Assembly bra inside

Construction

So this is exactly where it gets intriguing! You’ll notice from the picture above that there’s no underwire casing along the inner edge of this bra. Instead, the nylon rib is sandwiched in between the fabric, and it doesn’t have that best, flat ‘U’ shape that metal underwires do. I wouldn’t say it feels any more flexible than a metal wire, but it does seem to be much more contoured to the organic curve about a ribcage.

The bra is really effectively-produced in basic – the fabrics as I’ve pointed out look higher-high quality, and all of the stitching is perfectly neat. The elastic on the bra’s band and around the knicker edges is encased within the chiffon fabric which, once again, looks really neat. The back half of the leg seams are actually elastic-free of charge (the fabric is double-layered so the edge is exactly where it folds more than), which aids to give the knickers a smooth and seamless appear under clothing.

Also, I purchased two of these bras (32D and 32DD) and the DD version has wider straps and a marginally wider band, so help considerations have been taken into account for DD+.

Verdict: 9 / 10

Silent Assembly Elidi bra

Silent Assembly bra review

Match

The reason I purchased two bras is that, silly me, I put on molded cups so seldom these days that I forgot I tend to need a cup size smaller sized in them. I originally bought a 32DD but the cups have been gaping, so repurchased in a 32D (which just arrived yesterday) when Silent Assembly next popped up on MySale.

The 32D is a excellent match in the cups so in regards to that, I’d say it fits correct to size. Nonetheless the band does really feel a tad looser than most of my 32s so size down if you choose a really snug band. The short I purchased is an XS – there is no sizing info on Silent Assembly’s web site which is extremely odd, but they seem like a UK six-eight to me as they fit me completely.

What about the Curvessence technologies? I have to say, it is a really comfy bra to wear! I think that is as much to do with the reality that the rib is underneath a layer of padding as it is to do with its shape or flexibility. It’s like possessing a layer of cushioning more than the wire, which can in no way be a negative point!

Verdict: 9 / 10

Fraying on the flowers after about 4 months of wear.

Fraying on the flowers following about four months of put on.

Durability

Regrettably, the chiffon flowers have not held up properly to put on and gentle hand-washing. None have fallen off, and they’ve all nonetheless got their beads/crystals also, but as pictured above they are undoubtedly fraying. (All other photos were taken when the set was relatively new).

It is a shame, because the delicate little flowers do appear gorgeous but I don’t count on this set to final as long as most of my other lingerie.

Verdict: 4 / ten

Silent Assembly Elidi knickers review

Value for Cash

I bought this set on MySale for an absolute steal – £9 for the bra and £5 for the knickers! You can even buy a 2-pack of these or the high-waisted knickers for £9 if you are quick – the sale ends Tuesday.

The original RRP is £38 for the bra and £22 for the knickers, which seems like a very fair price, particularly offered the unique Curvessence ribs which add to the comfort and would probably have cost more to manufacture than acquiring in pre-made metal wires. Even so I’m not giving it a 10 out of ten primarily based on the longevity issue.

Verdict: 6 / 10*

*I have decided from now on to rate my testimonials against the original RRP, as that appears a fairer way to evaluate purchases, some of which might have been on sale and some not. Preceding evaluations are all rated based on the value I in fact paid.

Final Thoughts

It’s lovely to see a brand pushing the boundaries of how a bra can be produced. Will nylon ribs 1 day replace metal wires as the status quo for structured bras? I’m afraid there was no “OMG so this is what I’ve been missing out on my entire life” moment, but I didn’t locate it slightly more comfortable than usual and I’d advise giving Silent Assembly a go if you do have comfort concerns with standard underwires.

Remember, you can buy this and other Silent Assembly sets here at teeny tiny rates till Tuesday 17th May! I’ve just picked up yet another set, so count on yet another review next month.

What do you believe of this Elidi set, and Silent Assembly’s Curvessence rib idea? If you have bought a bra from them prior to, did you discover it any far more comfy than usual?

Overview: Impish Lee Style-Your-Personal Robe

Author: Estelle

Disclaimer: Impish Lee gifted me a voucher in exchange for this overview, and I also spent about £21 of my personal income on best of the voucher value. My opinions are, as constantly, one hundred% truthful. This blog post consists of affiliate hyperlinks.

Impish Lee is a brand I’ve covered prior to on the blog which gives style your own lingerie. I really like this notion. Possibly it’s the designer in me, but there’s anything additional particular about receiving a garment you’ve had a hand in making that picking out a pre-created item, nonetheless pretty, just can not examine to.

After beginning out on Etsy, the sister duo behind Impish Lee raised over $ 14,000 on Kickstarter to launch their personal web site, which has an interactive style tool to support you envision how the finished piece is going to appear. There’s also a gallery of finished pieces which you can click to pre-fill the choices in the design tool, if you want to buy precisely that look.

I found the tool super straightforward to use – after picking from a variety of garments, you select a skin tone (which corresponds to the lining colour utilised in some pieces), and then the entertaining genuinely begins! There’s a variety of fabrics to decide on from for each different part – including velvets, laces, mesh, sparkly spandex and far more – and on many pieces you can even select the number of bows (or no bows at all) to suit your style.

The tool brings your style to life appropriate in front of you, so you can play around with colours and fabrics to figure out which complement each and every other best. I made two pieces, and nowadays I’m reviewing the robe. Here’s how it looked on screen:

And here’s how it looked in actual life:

Impish Lee long velvet robe low res

Appearance

Gosh, I adore this robe! I mean, I did design it myself, sort of. But it looked even far more gorgeous than I’d expected when I opened my parcel.

I’ve wanted a velvet robe for ages, so choosing that as the primary fabric was a no-brainer. The velvet is oh-so-heavy and drape-y, so it hangs beautifully and swooshes about a bit as I stroll. Also, velvet just appears so luxe. I absolutely feel much more glamorous wearing this a single to my massive, fluffy, white dressing gown.

As you can see, the colour shown by the style tool is not an exact representation of the fabric, but I really like it all the very same. I would have liked to have observed the two black lace fabrics in far better detail just before selecting, as the design and style tool only shows a very zoomed-in version of every. I have since discovered these fabric videos which are useful, but you nonetheless only get to see one style of lace. That stated, I’m content with the lace I chose which is not a luxury lace, but a pretty 1.

Verdict: 9 / 10

Impish Lee design your own robe

Construction

Impish Lee’s robes are unlined, and this velvet has such a soft backing that that’s entirely not an situation. It’s extremely comfortable to put on.

All the seams – around the shoulders, on the sash, exactly where the black edging meets the burgundy physique – are quite neat and it’s the sort of good quality you’d expect from a shop-bought robe.

The only, little issue I have with it is the sleeve cuffs – they have wavy, ‘lettuce edge’ stitching which is fairly but has come away from the fabric in a couple of places, leaving small holes. It’s not as well noticeable although and effortlessly fixed.

Verdict: 8 / 10

Impish Lee long velvet robe dressing gown

Match

After consulting Impish Lee’s size guide, I went for a US two / UK size 6 (I have a 26″ waist which is their US four / UK eight, but my bust and hip measurements are both closer to the smaller sized size). And it fits me really properly, though if I were to order another 1 I feel I’d opt for the size up so that I could wrap it additional about my physique – just individual preference. It does match true to size.

It’s also a best length for me, just a tad off the ground so the hem doesn’t get dirty. I’m 5’3 so if you’re tall you could want to ask about custom length, given that it is created-to-order anyway.

Verdict: 9 / ten

Impish Lee custom robe review

Durability

I’ve owned my Impish Lee robe for about 5 weeks now, and worn it frequently. It is been worn to mooch about the home, it’s come half way across the planet with me on my existing holiday to the States, and it’s been employed on more than a single occasion as a blanket in the vehicle! (Why do Californians enjoy air con so very, extremely significantly?)

And yet in spite of all this, the robe is still in exceptional condition. There’s just those tiny holes at the sleeve cuffs, but otherwise no actual indicators of wear.

Verdict: 9 / ten

Impish Lee robe in velvet

Worth for Funds

costs $ 168, about £114. That is regardless of which fabrics you choose, it’s constantly the exact same price, so your concept of value for funds could depend on what you are searching for. I feel a velvet robe appears far more expensive (and may also final better) than a mesh one particular for instance.

For my distinct robe even though, I feel $ 168 is a good cost. To be sincere, it’s more than I’d have wanted to pay in a shop, but that is the point – you’re not just paying for the solution, you are paying for the reality it’s personalised. You can style a robe with Impish Lee that you can’t get anywhere else, and make it precisely how you want it to appear. That’s the beauty of custom and designing is half the entertaining right here.

It’s also important to remember that Impish Lee is a small, independent brand that manufactures ethically in the US, so prices won’t be comparable with mass-produced loungewear created in a sweatshop someplace.

Verdict: 7 / ten

Final Thoughts

General, really satisfied with my new Impish Lee robe! I’ve been wearing it non-cease since it arrived, and plan to put on it a complete lot much more.

As Impish Lee grows, I’d really like to see them offer far more luxurious fabrics such as silk, prints and prettier laces, which could come with an added price. Keep tuned for my other Impish Lee evaluation coming soon, of their knee-length lounge skirt. Oh, and click here for ten% off your Impish Lee order!

Overview: Mimi Holliday Bisou Bisou Strawberry Split Bodysuit

Author: Estelle

Disclosure: I bought this bodysuit with my personal cash and was not asked to assessment it. This blog post contains affiliate links.

I am so behind on my lingerie testimonials. I consider I purchased this bodysuit around October time final year and had planned to overview it over the Christmas break. But fortunately it’s nonetheless relevant since Bisou Bisou is one particular of Mimi Holliday’s ongoing collections in truth, I’d say this is their most iconic line – no matter what colour it is in, the Bisou Bisou lace makes pieces instantly recognisable as a Mimi design and style!

I picked this up on MySale at the same time as I bought my Mimi Holliday Raspberry Ripple slip and a bra set I’ll be reviewing soon. MySale has been running Mimi Holliday sample sales really regularly lately so do sign up if you are interested – you’ve just missed one particular that ended yesterday but I anticipate it’ll start off up again in March!

Mimi Holliday Bisou Bisou Strawberry Split bodysuit

Appearance

This specific bodysuit is from Mimi’s Strawberry Split range, featuring the Bisou Bisou lace in a vibrant, scarlet red that I couldn’t resist. All lingerie looks better in red as far as I’m concerned!

The entire front of the bodysuit is made from lace, such as the sheer cups that play on Mimi Holliday’s ‘shoulder bra’ appear – another iconic Mimi design and style. At the back, a centre panel of lace is framed with sheer red mesh, and there’s a massive keyhole reduce-out trimmed with a cute, scalloped net lace that also edges the leg line.

It is a pretty easy silhouette, but with the stretch lace is completely contoured to the physique and appears gorgeous on!

Verdict: 8 / 10

Construction

Although I’ve been seeing the Bisou Bisou lace pop up everywhere for years, this is my initial time really viewing it up close rather than on a laptop screen, and I’m delighted to say that it feels as excellent as it appears – soft and stretchy and wonderfully comfy to wear. The mesh is nice and soft too, and feels very tough.

It is a nicely-created bodysuit appropriate down to the finer information – the poppers at the crotch are set onto silk satin, and the bra straps function gold-tone metal hardware. I wouldn’t call it a luxury item, but it is a great quality 1.

Verdict: 10 / 10

Mimi Holliday Bisou Bisou Strawberry Split bodysuit back

Match

I bought the Strawberry Split Bisou Bisou bodysuit in size XS which equals a UK eight on the brand’s size chart. It’s a great fit on me, which is mainly down to the stretchiness of the fabric but there’s also two rows of poppers at the crotch (so taller girls can get an additional inch of length) and a bra-style back fastening with four settings for plenty of flexbility here also.

Verdict: 8 / ten

Durability

So as described, I’ve had this bodysuit for fairly some time now and I’ve absolutely gotten a lot of put on out of it – it was 1 of the only pieces of underwear I remembered to take on holiday with me at Christmas (so I could write that review…) so I was washing it every few days there in shampoo (my holiday lingerie wash remedy).

I’ve worn it a lot given that as well, and there’s completely no wear or damage. This Bisou Bisou lace is hardy stuff!

Verdict: 10 / ten

Value for Cash

I was extremely fortunate to choose this up for a mere £15 at MySale, down from an original value of £90. I possibly wouldn’t have gone for it at full cost just primarily based on the solution photo, but realizing how much wear I’ve gotten out of it (it’s so comfortable, but gorgeous as well – a fairly ideal mixture if you ask me) I would now say it’s worth it!

Verdict: 8 / ten

Mimi Holliday Bisou Bisou bodysuit

Final Thoughts

Just before I purchased this, I was beginning to feel like Mimi Holliday’s Bisou Bisou line had been accomplished to death. Seeing the very same lace employed in related styles over and more than was acquiring a bit stale.

However, now I personal it I entirely get the appeal and comprehend why it’s a bestseller for them – the lace is quite, higher top quality and actually comfortable. This has turn into my go-to piece for effortless, relaxed style on the weekends. Still, I’d adore to see them release the Bisou Bisou line in some bold, Claudette-esque colour combinations. I’d buy this bodysuit once more in yellow also!

Unfortunately this Strawberry Split bodysuit is now sold out, as is the bodysuit from the current ‘Mercury’ Bisou Bisou line, but I doubt the subsequent Bisou Bisou bodysuit is far off! You can also nevertheless pick up the last few sizes of the Bisou Bisou Strawberry Split bra right here and matching pieces here.

What do you think of Mimi Holliday’s Bisou Bisou line? Are you a fan of this lace, or pondering sufficient already?!

Robes and loungewear look to have picked up momentum more than the previous year. I’ve certainly caught the bug, and have taken to wearing silky lingerie robes as luxe cardigan options for daywear. This Fringe Robe in silk chiffon by Norwegian Wood ($ 299 CAD / roughly $ 219 USD) is delightfully versatile for such a statement piece.

Like several Norwegian Wood pieces, this robe features custom printed fabric. The silk chiffon panels showcases images from the Rijksmuseum, selected in collaboration with photographer Hattie Watson. There’s a touch of each the celestial and the macabre right here – demon and angel wings adorn the top of an hourglass, a massive skull rests on an open book, and a scythe wielding angel reaches towards two skeletons, framed by a constellation map.

The all round effect is timeless, gothic, bohemian, and modern day hipster all at the same time. From the photographs, I could not have predicted how significantly I would enjoy this robe when it arrived. Whether or not my wife is throwing it on when she slips out of bed, or I’m wearing it to function paired with black jeans and a v-neck tee, it constantly seems like a excellent style selection. I by no means would have anticipated it to be so versatile that it became a virtual staple in my wardrobe, and but that is exactly what happened.

The construction is relatively simple. The flowing lines are fundamentally the result of well-proportioned rectangles. Though the body fabric is 100% silk, it is worth noting that silk chiffon like this has more of a crepe texture than the shine and slippery smoothness of, say, silk charmeuse. The shoulder and side seams are overlocked with a lockstitch for security, even though the collar and cuffs are attached with a normal lockstitch. There’s also a line of topstitching that holds the collar’s seam allowance down. At the bottom, the hem is flipped to the front, then covered with the luxurious 8″ fringe trim. Overall, its completed length is 50″, which tends to make it a floor-sweeping length when my arms are down on my 5’3″ frame. It’s sized as “One Size Fits All,” but the width of the cuffs could be limiting for larger sizes.

At $ 299 CAD (approximately $ 219 USD), this robe could be considered something of an investment piece for most consumers. Considering that it is silk (and printed silk at that), it’s a dry clean only piece, which is a cost that also requirements to be factored into your “cost per wear” evaluation. As such a loose fitting garment, even though, it’s not the type of piece that wants to be washed extremely regularly. I haven’t yet noticed any snags on the chiffon (in spite of my pet-owner status), but it does appear to shed fringe at a rate of roughly one string per put on. This is not atypical in my expertise with fringed garments. Given how a lot fringe adorns the hem, it’s going to take a extended time prior to that loss is even noticeable!

If you’re tempted by one of Norwegian Wood’s unique fringe robes, I would take into account it effectively worth saving up for. There’s a special feeling to being wrapped in a drapey garment with the weight of all that fringe swinging at its hem. Although I love the dark tone of this robe’s print, each and every of Norwegian Wood’s styles has its personal exclusive style. Do note that most robes are created-to-order, so you will want to enable a couple added weeks for production.

What do you think of Norwegian Wood and this fringe robe?
