Evaluation: Colette & Sebastian Elise Bra, Thong & Suspender Belt

Author: Estelle

Disclosure: I received this lingerie set free of charge (except for $ 25 postage which I paid) from Colette and Sebastian to review. All opinions are, as always, one hundred% sincere.

Colette &amp Sebastian is a new US lingerie brand by Colette Khalil. The brand has debuted with a pretty narrow 32-36 B-DD and S-L size variety, but it is no wonder when you see how a lot of merchandise there are – there are 59 bras alone! There’s a tiny bit of some thing for everybody, from lined balconettes to sheer bralettes and super-strappy pieces. I was offered a set from Pure Temptation, a collection of classic, unlined bra and suspender sets, and obviously went for the 1 with sparkles.

Colette and Sebastian Elise bra set review

Appearance

Black and gold is a single of my favourite colour combinations, it constantly adds a sense of opulence no matter how simple the design and style it is a component of – and Elise is a relatively easy bra set, not one particular that would have caught my eye in plain black. I know that due to the fact it’s also available in black as the Alexandra set, which is nice sufficient if you just want a simple, lacy bra, thong and suspender set – but when you can add a glittering gold shimmer for just $ 11 additional, there’s no query in my thoughts more than which to go for!

Not only is the Elise metallic, it has my other favourite point in a lace, scallops, which continue all the way about the base of the band and trim the cups and thong. They adorn the straps too all the way to the shoulder, which is a fairly touch. I like it when bra straps don’t get forgotten about.

There are no bows as you so typically locate on lingerie. The decor details all really subtle – the gold rings breaking the suspender straps in the middle, for example – producing this a classic, timeless style, and minimalistic despite the lace. It’s one that operates just as well for daytime as it would for particular occasions.

Verdict: 7 / ten

Building

Continuing the subtly-accomplished decor theme, the lace pattern is symmetrical all through, which I appreciate. It’s not some thing you notice right away, but it is 1 of these small information that sets larger-finish lingerie apart from the inexpensive stuff.

The bra is a 3-part cup with a silicone trim along the cup edge to keep the lace flush against the skin. The hardware is metal and the fabrics and elastics utilized are all really soft, including a mesh lining inside the bra’s cups.

Verdict: 8 / 10

Colette and Sebastian Elise suspender belt review

Fit

I received the bra in a 32D, a sister-size up from my present usual size of 30DD, and the thong and suspender belt in a S (UK 10 / US six) so a couple of dress sizes bigger than usual. I’d for that reason expected that they’d need to have some alterations to fit me, but the thong has sliders at the side and is so adjustable that it wasn’t an issue at all.

The suspender belt on the other hand kept slipping down to my hips so I took 4″ off (tutorial here if you missed it) and it now fits considerably far better, even though it didn’t resolve the slipping-down difficulty. The lace and elastic are each fine, soft and stretchy, so it just will not stay place at waist-height. The suspender straps are also not fully adjustable due to the gold ring detail, so it doesn’t maintain my stockings quite as high as I’d like. It is a lot more of a boudoir piece actually, or for someone tall.

As for the bra, the band is accurate to size as a 32 and the cups are just my size. It is not a especially supportive bra – the vertical seam is on the lining layer only and feels unsubstantial so it doesn’t do any aggressive sculpting – but it is comfy and fits effectively.

Verdict: 6 / ten

Durability

Colette &amp Sebastian’s Elise set is hand-wash only, even though you’d most likely be fine popping it on a delicates cycle in a mesh lingerie bag. I’ve worn it about five occasions so far and haven’t noticed any troubles, it still appears virtually new.

Verdict: 9 / ten

Value for Income

The Elise bra is $ 114 (~£92 / ~107€), the thong is $ 61 (~£49 / ~57€) and the suspender belt is $ 72 (~£58 / ~68€). That’s a lot more than I would have considered paying for it personally if I’m sincere. I like the set, but I have a tendency to value trend-led design and more striking components (like the embroidery on the lovely Allegra suspender belt), and would be looking something much more exclusive if I have been going to drop a couple of hundred pounds on a lingerie set.

It is fairly though and extremely comfy to put on. It is worth taking into consideration if what you want is a classic, sophisticated set that will look just as fashionable five or ten years from now.

Verdict: 6 / ten

Colette &amp Sebastian lingerie set review

Colette &amp Sebastian also makes a plunge version of this bra called Andriele, which has a tanga bottom and slightly distinct suspender belt, and there’s a Madison balconette and brief also in the exact same lace, so you can mix and match among the 3 ranges to generate your perfect set. The slightly less expensive, non-metallic Alexandra version of this Elise set also comes in red and white.

What do you consider of this Elise bra set, and the rest of Colette &amp Sebastian’s debut collection?

Harlow & Fox ‘Eleanor’ Bra, Short and Suspender BeltWhere do…

Harlow &amp Fox ‘Eleanor’ Bra, Brief and Suspender Belt

Where do I begin with the Harlow &amp Fox ‘Eleanor’ set? How about with a tiny about the brand. They are the greatest ‘luxury pretty’ label for fuller cups that there is, in my opinion (30-38 DD-G). The top quality is exceptional, the supplies divine and the match ideal. This blue silk version of ’Eleanor’ (it comes in several colors) characteristics an exquisite black eyelash trim, tiny pearl detail and ruched straps. The bra is a complete cup, it is not moulded or padded but gives the most beautiful lifted shape sheerly from the way it is cut and sewn. The short is basic, comfortable and versatile and complements the bra and matching wide suspender belt (there is also a genuinely cute teardrop cut-out on the back). Stated suspender belt is a Real suspender belt, that manages to be each totally sturdy, holding evens totally-fashioned silk stockings up and firmly in location, with out compromising on the delicacy of the garment and it is style. All hardware is tough and higher high quality. This set generally just feels beautiful on the skin and to put on, whilst nonetheless remaining extremely supportive. The cost for this set is really reasonable for a luxury label. I adore this set, I adore this label and I feel they are 1 of the most underrated in the lingerie industry. I have never ever attempted a Harlow &amp Fox piece that hasn’t blown me away with it is wonderful match and sumptuous really feel.

Honey Birdette ‘Natalie’ Suspender Set

A sheer, unlined, underwire bra is my favorite style. In accordance with my personal preferences, it offers support, but none of the extra bulk that comes with padding or even moulded cups. ‘Natalie’ is a balconette style and her support (in addition to the underwire) comes from vertically boned cups. This also gives an ‘upwards’ cleavage/lift without extra size. I find the bra comfy and supportive, even with the thin shoulder straps, but I’ve heard some in larger cup sizes find the boning can bend to a more ‘square’ shape, but it’s not an issue I’ve encountered as a 10D. The suspender- always the best in HB styles- is simple, sturdy and the lace applique and embroidery detail is used to best effect here, the edging in my particular. Even though it’s a relatively narrow belt, it holds the HB cuban heel stockings in place. For once, I actually preferred and chose to go with the thong option, as it seemed daintier compared to the brief and the hip straps matched the shoulder straps. The trim (as with the bras boning casing) throughout ‘Natalie’ is a faux leather and the fabric is a sheer mesh. I like this textural juxtaposition of hard and soft, it makes the set both delicate and strong- an often hard mix to nail. This is the sort of timeless, classic black set I always recommend for partners buying their ladies gifts, as it’s pretty safe and hard to go wrong with, and also for those wanting to branch out from Bonds and take their first steps into lingerie.

‘Natalia Nightshade’ Bra, Brief and Suspender by Pleasure State…

‘Natalia Nightshade’ Bra, Brief and Suspender by Pleasure State White Label.

Pleasure State is one of the most consistent and reliable Australian brands, across the board. ‘Natalia Nightshade’ has the mix of great style, amazing match and high quality that has made PS so profitable. This underwire, lightly lined plunge bra is comfortable, supportive and an accurate fit, so far as my most usual size goes. This is undoubtedly a bra you can wear all day, but is also, as you can see, quite lovely! Significantly the very same for the mini-brief, a reduce which can typically be annoying due to it is prospective to ‘ride up’, but this 1 stays in location and is also good for long wear with no aesthetic compromise. The shape of this suspender is beautiful, flattering the cut of the bra and short, making a good balance on the body and functioning properly. The secure match on the waist and hip implies it does it’s job of really holding up stockings nicely. My favored issue about this set even though is the navy colour (a delightful and exciting alternative to black), the fabric and all the other designs particulars. A crochet, navy lace with metallic silver sparkles woven in? I’ve in no way quite noticed something like it, not at this place in the marketplace. The scalloped edge of the lace is perfection and each tiny decoration from the ribbons to dual-colored bows and hardware is exciting and quirkily quite. Yet not 1 specific feature distracts from or overwhelms one more. A beautiful, chic and attractive style, Natalia Nightshade is an instance of fantastic and uncompromising style.

Honey Birdette ‘Veruka’ Brief Suspender Set and Cuban Heel…

Honey Birdette ‘Veruka’ Short Suspender Set and Cuban Heel Stockings.

The definition of ‘not-so-fundamental-black’ Veruka is something I haven’t come across in lingerie however- military inspired. The bra has a lot of padding, so be prepared for ultra lift and cleavage. Which is possibly just as effectively because you are going to want to show of the neckline, which has a detachable collar, which means it can function as a typical bra or as deliberately visible statement piece (if going for the latter, I suggest beneath a black pencil dress, a white or black collared shirt or a deep-v plunging black leading, as recommendations). The wide shoulder straps make it far much more comfortable than thinner strapped bras as there is much less chance to ‘dig in’. The hot pant short is a cheeky/brazilian cut, which I’m usually not a fan of, but this is cut just-so and in fact STAYS in location (!- the reality most don’t is why I don’t normally like them). Paired with the suspender, the brief is truly amazing. The two garments, exactly where they sit on the physique and the fabrics, a thick black satin and a powermesh, act like shapewear, giving an remarkable smoothing and subtley waist-cinching effect. I completely intend to put on this even with no the bra for this purpose. My favourite aspect of this style nonetheless is the details- the gold military buttons and strong, sturdy gold clips, clasps and adjustors. Get a soldier’s cap, an HB riding crop or some undesirable-ass boots and go to town on the roleplay with this distinct, however versatile, character-inspired set.

Helen Valk Varavin ‘Venus’ Bra  and Brief, ‘Astrild’ Suspender…

Helen Valk Varavin ‘Venus’ Bra  and Brief, ‘Astrild’ Suspender and signature knit baroque stockings. I hold going back to Helen Valk Varavin for two reasons. 1) butter soft silks. two), the rich rainbow of colors they come in. Last time I reviewed HVV, I was attracted to a vibrant emerald green set with cage-like strap information. Conversely, right here I believed I would try one of Helen’s frilly, ultra-girly designs in the ballet peach. I like the demure-but-not-immature air of the style and shade. Much more chic than pink, this peach silk reminded me of ballet slippers of my youth, an sophisticated femininity. The soft-cup bra has ruffles on the shoulders, the band is wide elastic and ribbon ties at the front, in the centre of the cups. It provides a adequate, but not large, amount of support, is extremely comfortable and I can get away with wearing it throughout the day, but I do not feel I would advise it for anyone over a DD cup. Beneath that and you are a lot more than fine! These briefs have been created custom for me as per request and have been not initially in the collection. However, Helen liked them so a lot (following I recommended a short with hip ruffle) that now they are! We had been both really content with how they turned out! They cute and really feel divine on the skin- HVV components are excellent quality. This set looks incredible with out a suspender currently, but even more so with. The most lovely aspect of this 1 is the lace-up back. It’s a wide, nearly retro shape. Combined with the knit stockings, this look is very ‘comfort luxury’ and some thing that reminds me of a Dauphine. A much more basic and chic Marie Antoinette. This set is ideal for languid afternoon lounging of a much more playful and character-filled range. It is, at the identical time, pretty and without care. Consider couch, netflix at 4pm and a glass of champagne almost certainly also expensive for the occasion. Such particular feelings, reasonable costs and good quality, ethical production, is specifically what I want from my favorite indie labels.

Honey Birdette ‘Bonnie’ suspender thong set. Leopard is the…

Honey Birdette ‘Bonnie’ suspender thong set. Leopard is the Small Black Dress of the lingerie planet- it’s a staple, it has nothing to do with trends. It is a gamble although, performing a classic usually is. Completed nicely, leopard is timeless attractive. Accomplished bad, it is tacky at very best. The ideal bet to creating leopard function is to add a subtle retro nod for vintage pin-up vibes. This is what HB has done with ‘Bonnie’ and taken it an further step by adding other complementary particulars- the lace, the red velvet bows and the faux-leather piping. It could very easily have gone OTT with all these components, but as an alternative, is a perfect balance of cute, undesirable-gal signatures. This, to me, is what the modern Bettie Web page or Tura Satana would wear. I like the golden tones in the print (not a fan of browns), which is a beautiful semi-matte satin. The lace is equivalent to that on other HB designs, such a Senorita, which as I’ve reviewed ahead of, softens extremely nicely over time. The bra is a lightly padded underwire that I find fits properly and provides good help. It’s sturdy straps, also on the suspender belt, are fantastic for staying put and holding items in spot. I Enjoy the shape of the suspender belt and I find it operates effectively with even non-remain-up stockings. I believe it would’ve been cool as a much more 50′s six-strap, but this nevertheless retains that vibe. The easy thong is functional and permits the bra and suspender to get the focus. My favorite portion of ‘Bonnie’ is her details. The contrasting textures of the satin, the ruby red velvet bows and the leather piping are what tends to make this set stand out, begging you to touch it. It was a very good style get in touch with, as was the huge metal hardware, and is what tends to make me like this way more than any other leopard on the marketplace right now. In reality, I only have one particular other I like as considerably as this (and the elastic has disintegrated in it, so this is the new leopard star in my wardrobe). This set- thanks to all it is tiny thoughftul particulars- is a winner, excellent for the vintage vixen with contemporary sensibilitites.

 The various Honey Birdette ‘Bonnie’ designs are Here, but I don’t believe they will be obtainable for much longer.

Harlow and Fox ‘Augusta’ Bra, Short, Suspender and Robe. Harlow…

Harlow and Fox ‘Augusta’ Bra, Short, Suspender and Robe. Harlow and Fox struck me immediately with their classic, luxurious styles. They are a full bust brand, making in the size variety of 30-38 DD-G. One of the pros of my bra size is that I can typically uncover types in common lines and also edge in at the smaller finish of full-figure lines, such as this. ‘Augusta’ filled me with want from very first sight. A bra/brief/suspender set with matching luxe kimono robe. For one particular issue, it is a excellent green shade I do not think we see adequate of in lingerie, but when accomplished nicely, is spectacular (particularly for us redheads). For an additional, it is got 1 of my preferred details- fringing. LOTS of fringing! The bra in a 32 DD fits completely. I hover amongst a D-DD based on brand, sometimes unable to fill out a DD volume-smart (thanks pregnancy and breastfeeding). The shape this bra creates- lifted, perky, properly-supported without any padding, moulding or added bulk- is great and generally what most of the busty amongst us want from a bra. The construction is really higher-top quality, as is the silk and the lace, which contrary to how it looks in the photo, is not a print, but 3-dimensional laser-reduce embroidery. The short is a excellent fit, insanely comfy and has a keyhole back with dangling tassel! An adorable surprise. The suspender is just incredible. It provides excellent coverage and in spite of the delicate fabric, is really sturdy. Completely fashioned/non-keep-up stockings can be worn securely all day, no moving, sliding about or pulling down. The long fringe on the hips is so, so specific and my favourite issue about ‘Augusta’. If you are feeling added luxurious, then this robe is for you. It is fairly heavy, consisting of double layered of silk- green on the outside black on the inside- and lots of that fringing. Far from becoming a hindrance, that heaviness makes the garment really feel very high-priced and it wears like, properly, a strong caress. I do not know if that is an correct description for all, but it is to me and it’s one particular of the most pleasurable feelings in my opinion. If you have a fuller figure and discover your self sized out of a lot of luxury lingerie labels, then Harlow and Fox is your answer.  I was already recommending them on reputation and design and style alone to bigger busted close friends just before even experiencing these pieces. Now I can’t advise them enough being aware of that their high quality is also exceptional.

Review: Roza Grase Bra & Scarlet Suspender Belt & Knickers

Author: Estelle

Disclaimer: This set was sent to me free of charge by Black Alice to be reviewed. My opinions are, as often, one hundred% honest. Roza is not affiliated with this blog post.

Black Alice is a new on-line retailer specialising in sexy, price range-friendly lingerie. Although UK primarily based, a lot of of the brands they sell are from Poland, such as Gracya, Irall, Beauty Night and the brand I’m reviewing these days, Roza. Minimum wages and living fees are much reduce in Poland than the UK, so numerous brands there can afford to produce locally and nevertheless retail at prices that are decrease than we’re utilised to here in Britain.

Polish lingerie gets a lot of really like from full-busted bloggers and clients, but the nation is also house to a number of popular core-sized brands. Roza is 1 such brand, providing 32-38 band sizes and A-E cups and with prices that start from £17 for a bra at Black Alice.

Roza Grase Scarlet lingerie review

I picked out the Roza Grase bra plus the Scarlet suspender belt and knickers (the Grase and Scarlet ranges are matching), but if these are not very to your liking there’s also a molded bra, higher-waisted knicker and thong available – plus some of these types are offered in a white and child blue colourway.

Roza Grase bra review by Black Alice

Appearance

The Grase bra has a simple, 2-component cup with a semi-opaque reduced half that is covered with raised velvet dots, and a sheer upper half produced from ultra-fine mesh that is thickly embroidered in black and pink. I particularly like the spiky, scalloped edging on the embroidery.

The embroidery is utilised again among the cups, and the straps are covered with the very same flocked-velvet fabric as is utilized on the cups and the band. In spite of the comparatively low price tag, it is a pretty bra with consideration paid to the smaller sized specifics.

The matching Scarlet knickers and suspender belt are each produced from the sheer, spotted fabric with embroidered mesh details and also the addition of mesh ruffles. I like the way that the embroidered panels slant outwards on the suspender and are placed even further to the side on the knickers, which creates the illusion of much more curves when worn collectively on the body (never ever a negative factor in my books, considering that my waist does not really nip in naturally!).

Verdict: 6 / ten

Roza Grase bra

Construction

General, the building is about what I’d count on for a bra set in this price tag variety, maybe even a small much better as the fabrics are intriguing and unusual. It’s neatly sewn, with coated metal hardware on the suspenders.

Up close, the pink embroidery doesn’t match the rest of the embroidery in terms of quality or design, but I do like the flashes of hot pink (which go perfectly with my favourite new stockings, yay!).

Verdict: 7 / 10

Roza and Black Alice lingerie review

Match

Initially I asked for a 32DD but what arrived had UK 32E / European 70E on the label (which they’d sent as a 70E ought to equate to a UK 32DD) and was significantly also massive for me. Black Alice have been quite valuable and promptly sent out a cup size smaller sized, which has UK 32D / European 70D on the label. One European cup size down but two UK sizes down, which is all extremely confusing! I’m mentioning all of this to say that I’m not completely confident of what size bra I’m wearing and if it’s what I’d ‘ordered’, but basically the 1 with UK 32D on the label fits me in the cups like a common UK 32DD.

Speaking of the bra match, the band runs quite massive on the Grase. As a ‘true’ 30E, I’m used to 32 bands feeling a tiny loose but this one rides up noticeably. So, the 1 with UK 32D on the label fits in the band much a lot more like a UK 34. Undesirable news if you put on a 32 band size or under, but it does mean that if you wear a 40 band you have a excellent opportunity of fitting into Roza’s 38, at least in this distinct style.

The knickers are a size Small – a UK 8-10 according to the size chart on Black Alice’s website, but a UK 8 on the label and a UK eight in how they fit.

The suspender belt is the same – the Little is labelled a UK eight – but I located the match of this to be significantly much more generous. Probably because of the narrow hook-and-eye back, it does not do a very good job of staying at waist level on my 26″ waist. If you can, size down in this to get a greater match. It is also worth noting that the suspender straps are super lengthy. I’m going to lop a good 6″ off of them when I get a moment to do that and adjust the band size.

Verdict: 4 / 10

Roza Scarlet brief review

Durability

One particular of the pink motifs is beginning to unravel currently which is disappointing, but otherwise the Grase/Scarlet set has held up genuinely well to a number of wears and washes. It’s hand-wash only, but if you have been to use a mesh bag and a delicate spin cycle you could probably get away with sticking this 1 in the machine.

Verdict: 7 / ten

Worth for Cash

At Black Alice, the Roza Grase bra costs a really price range-friendly £20.99, the knickers are £14 and the suspender belt is £21 – generating it £55.99 for the 3-piece set or £34.99 for the bra and knickers for those who don’t want to do the maths :)

This is an reasonably priced, pretty lingerie set and it’s worth what you’d pay for it.

Final Thoughts

Despite the fact that I had a number of fit issues, they’re the sort of point that can be remedied effortlessly enough with a small alteration. To steer clear of your self the hassle even though, sister size down (one particular band size smaller sized and one particular cup size bigger than usual) if you can in the bra.

As my very first little foray into the Polish lingerie scene, I’ve been happy with the set overall and I’d take into account acquiring anything by Roza again – the Florence, Natali and Ginewra sets looks pretty! The Mon Amour bra by Gracya and Fabra basque by Bassaya at Black Alice are worth checking out as well.

What do you consider of this Grase/Scarlet design by Roza? Is there something else at Black Alice that you like the look of?

Bras N Things ‘Rosie’ Plunge Bra, Suspender and G-string. This…

Bras N Things ‘Rosie’ Plunge Bra, Suspender and G-string. This has been a surprise addition to what I call my ‘Wearable 3-Pieces’. That is, it’s a bra/suspender/bottoms set that is completely functional, even if it’s marketed or intended to be ‘sexy’. If your taste in underwear tends to run basic, I can see how this would be considered ‘fancy’ lingerie. If that’s the case, I definitely recommend it. However, as someone who’s lingerie is a little more elaborate&amphellip well, I’d still recommend it! I thought this would be a great, simple set for beneath skirts and dresses on days I wanted to wear stockings and I was right. It’s a sheer pale pink lace, over pale pink opaque stretch fabric, with black piping detail. The black detail extends to a strappy, cut-out feature on the back of the suspender that I like. The suspender belt is also lightly boned (which I really like) as it holds in place and feels a bit more secure and shaping. The g-string is a simple V shape, comfortable and doesn’t move on me, as most do. I forget I’m wearing it, which is rare for me with any thong style. The bra is a moulded cup with good lift. I find the fit great and the sizing spot on. Again, very comfy. Being a mid-range bracket and style, the hardware and fabric are OK and good for the cost, but of course, not luxury or anything. That is fine and to be expected at this reasonable price point, as this set’s strong point is definitely it’s fantastic fit and comfort levels, as well as it’s ability to walk the line between simple and special.‘Rosie’ styles by Bras N Things HERE
