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

Colette and Sebastian review - black and gold lace suspender belt

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?

Assessment: Amoretu Red Babydoll & Thong

Author: Eliza

Disclosure: I received this set free of charge of charge by Amoretu to evaluation. All opinions are 100% honest.

As summer season ends and university classes start off up once again, much less time to work indicates less funds for me to spend on lingerie. Amoretu to the rescue! I was lucky enough to be asked to review 1 of their pieces, and right after scrolling through their collection on Amazon, I chose this sheer red babydoll which comes with a matching thong. I do not own numerous babydolls, and I can in no way get sufficient red lingerie, so this was the ideal addition to my collection.

amoretu-red-babydoll-set-review

Look: 7/ten

Two issues struck me most about the babydoll’s appearance. The initial was the floral lace on the bodice, a pattern of swirls and flowers which was even more stunning in reality than the internet site pictures suggested. The second was the bottom, made up of about a dozen diverse pieces of fabric which fall from the bodice to generate a beautifully flowy skirt. Every single piece moves on its personal which makes it best for twirling, and I really like how you can lift a piece or two for a attractive peek of the thong underneath.

Building: 6/10

The quality is what I would count on for the cost. Each the babydoll and thong seem sturdy and have survived a couple of wears, but I did uncover a few loose threads on the babydoll ahead of I’d even place it on. The material is a bit stiff as effectively.

amoretu-sheer-red-chiffon-and-lace-babydoll

Match: four/10

I suspected from the start off that this piece might not match perfectly. As a 32E cup and UK size eight, it’s uncommon that a core sized, non-adjustable piece fits me. Typically, a size Medium is as well little in the cups, even though a Massive is as well huge everywhere else. Given that this piece has a flowy bottom, I most likely could have gotten away with ordering a Big without having it becoming as well loose around my thighs nonetheless, I thought the Huge thong wouldn’t match me, so I went with a Medium.

A word of caution: don’t trust the size chart on Amazon. According to the chart, the Medium babydoll is supposed to match a bust up to 37 inches, but that is my bust size and it is a bit tight on me (there’s also a separate size chart by Amoretu that states it fits up to a 39″ bust). That is not a enormous concern, mostly because this garment was designed for short-term bedroom put on. I’ve worn it for a handful of hours at a time with small discomfort.

I nevertheless could have sized up. Despite the fact that the size chart claims the Medium thong fits a UK 12-14, it was slightly tight on me as a UK size eight. I wouldn’t recommend it for even a UK size ten, and absolutely not for a 12. The measurements for the size Modest greater fit with the actual sizing of the Medium. I advise sizing up.

amoretu-red-babydoll-back

Value for Cash: eight/10

That all getting mentioned, I believe it’s a good deal for the value. For a mere $ 14 (~£11 / ~13€), you get a set of lingerie that is both stunning and sexy.

Would I Advise?

Yes, with reservations. If you want some new lingerie with out emptying your bank account, Amoretu is the brand for you. It’s attractive and spending budget-friendly. Just make sure you follow my sizing advice.

Even so, for a item for day-to-day put on or a single that will last a extended time, look elsewhere. This set is more about sex appeal than utility or comfort.

What are some of your favourite spending budget-lingerie brands? Have you ever bought lingerie from Amazon?

Review: Lara Catherine Collections Josaphine Bralette & Thong

Author: Estelle

Disclosure: I received this bra set cost-free of charge from Lara Catherine Collections to review. All opinions are, as often, 100% honest.

When Lara Gilmour of Lara Catherine Collections got in touch with me lately, it was the very first time I’d heard of her brand. British-born but primarily based in Buenos Aires, she functions with a tiny, nearby group to create her styles which she describes as mixing “a charmingly English and ladylike style with attractive and sensual”.

I couldn’t decide between a bra set or a bikini and asked Lara to surprise me, which she did by sending each! So there will be a stick to-up swimwear assessment to come, but these days let’s speak about my first ‘proper’ bralette…

Lara Catherine Collections Josaphine bralette set review

Appearance

Most of Lara’s bralettes have extremely narrow elastic bands, which I didn’t feel would supply me the sort of assistance I like in a bra, so I was left with a decision of three which have wider fabric bands. I picked Josaphine simply because of her print. I want to contact it ‘quaint’, although I’m not confident that’s very the right word. It tends to make me think of old porcelain teacups and Laura Ashley cushions.

I’d expected the set to be white from the product photographs, but it’s truly much more of a cream/ivory which is nice because it adds to that vintage-y feel of the set.

The bottoms are named ‘culotteless’, which seems to be a word exclusive to Argentinian Spanish to describe a thong with a wide, Brazilian-style back. I preferred this to the regular Josaphine thong due to the fact of the wide, scalloped lace trim about the leg lines.

Verdict: 7 / 10

Lara Catherina Josaphine culottes review

Construction

The Josaphine bralette has two-component triangle cups, seamed all the way up the centre. At the front, there’s no real ‘band’ to speak of – a centimetre-high strip of elastic runs along the inner base of the cups, which overlap the tiniest bit in the middle. The straps are super narrow 6mm satin elastic, with white plastic hardware.

General, this set is nice but absolutely appears handmade. The edges of the gusset have been left raw for instance (not visible from the outdoors), and here are there you will find wonky stitches if you look for them. Personally, I don’t thoughts these little imperfections as they just serve to remind me of the set’s artisanal nature. That stated, there is a seam to one side of the thong where the lace trims don’t match up neatly, which is a more obvious flaw. Don’t expect shop-purchased quality with this set, but it is wearable.

Verdict: 5 / ten

Lara Catherine Collections review

Fit

According to Lara Catherine Collections’ size chart (which goes by overbust size only) I’m a Modest but following mentioning I normally put on a 30E/32DD, Lara decided the Huge would be the best fit.

She was right – the cups on the Large are a perfect fit for me. They do not offer any assistance, but they’re comfy despite the inner seams. The band is not a undesirable fit either, it rides up just a tad like most of my 32DD bras do. So (based on my restricted encounter with this one particular bralette) I’m thinking Lara Catherine Collections maxes out at about a 32-band size.

The culotteless nonetheless is offered in S-XL, covering UK 6-16. I was sent the size Little (UK six-8) and it fits correct to size.

Verdict: 5 / ten

Lara Catherine Josaphine bralette and thong review

Lara Catherine Collections bralette review

Durability

Lara recommends to hand-wash all of her pieces, and this is so far nevertheless in beautiful, virtually-new condition right after a number of wears and washes.

Verdict: 8 / 10

Worth for Cash

The Josaphine bralette is £13.99 and the bottoms are £7.99. That is extremely low cost, it’s H&ampM kind of pricing but ethically-handmade. The set isn’t perfect, it has its flaws, but for £22 you genuinely can not ask for more! I’d be satisfied to acquire one more bra set by Lara Catherine Collections.

Verdict: 7 / ten

Lara Catherine Collections Josaphine thong review

Final Thoughts

Lara aims to make “fun, very feminine [lingerie] with an innocent but attractive appeal” and I consider she’s nailed that in this Josaphine set, where dainty print meets cheeky cut. There’s surely room for improvement in the construction and finishes, but regardless of that I actually like this bra set. I’ve been wearing it fairly frequently lately!

What do you believe of the Josaphine bralette and culotteless from Lara Catherine Collections? What kind of quality would you anticipate from a £22 bra set?

Evgenia ‘Janus’ Bralette and Thong and Ribbon Corset.There’s…

Evgenia ‘Janus’ Bralette and Thong and Ribbon Corset.

There’s lots to adore about these 3 pieces, all great examples of Evgenia signatures. The bralette is a modelled on the Kesto bra, which in the 20′s was the very first to separate the breasts. It wraps around, buttons under the cups and provides help while still providing a organic shape. I must say, I can not typically ‘do’ a bralette but this one I enjoy and it works(!) due to the non-stretch star print lace. A cool trait of Evgenia styles is that no stretch fabric is employed. All match comes from becoming cut on the bias and this makes up a big component of the 20′s/30′s influence noticed throughout the brand as a entire. The matching thong is simple and modern day and 1 of the few thong cuts I like- tiny, triangular and string hipped. It is generally looks and feels invisible below most garments, just super comfy. The Ribbon corset is divine and exceeded my fairly high expectations, really. It’s side-boned, hooks at the front, laces at the back. It provides a very good quantity of cinch whilst becoming a lot more versatile and comfy than a fully/multi-boned heavier duty range. It is a very ‘wearable’ corset. All of these pieces are beautiful, exceptionally nicely-made (anything I could not inform just how much so until worn and observed up close) and constructed from high-top quality materials. The styles are subtly attractive, incredibly chic and have a dash of quirk. Evgenia is the label I most suggest to style-focussed close friends- these with impeccable-but-understated style and a demand for luxury high quality.

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.

Review: ViVi2Anna Silver Celebration Bra & Thong

Author: Estelle

Disclosure: I purchased this set with my own money and was not asked to assessment it. This weblog post contains affiliate links.

I don’t tend to be that brand loyal with my lingerie, not simply because I do not want to be but because there are just so, so many brands I want to try out, and I only have restricted funds! Plus I consider this weblog would get a bit boring if I kept giving you reviews of the exact same handful of labels…

That stated, final summer season I reviewed a bra set by ViVi2Anna which has turned out to be a single of my most-worn sets so I didn’t take significantly convincing to go back for a second set.

The Silver Celebration set is only offered with these high-waisted knickers which are cool, but I wanted a thong like ahead of and the great issue about acquiring from indie brands is that they’re generally happy to do custom orders. So even though you will not uncover this thong in her shop, if you want to acquire it you require only ask!

Bra &amp thong: Silver Celebration by ViVi2Anna. Suspender belt: Ariana by Esty Lingerie

Bra &amp thong: Silver Celebration by ViVi2Anna. Suspender belt: Ariana by Esty Lingerie

Appearance

Silver Celebration is a lightweight bra produced from sheer black mesh and an great, sparkly black and silver fabric. The thong was a bit of a surprise (I didn’t request something much more than “can you make me a thong in this fabric please?”), so I love that she added a little keyhole design and style at the back, topped with a satin bow.

It’s a fairly easy set general, but made eye-catching thanks to the fabric – I do like a bit of shimmer!

(P.S. The black mesh isn’t sparkly also – that is just me getting overenthusiastic with silver glitter in my photographs, which I then had to painstakingly wash out. I didn’t consider that one particular via totally!).

Verdict: 7 / ten

ViVi2Anna Silver Celebration bra review

Construction

Both pieces are excellently and expertly constructed, with completely neat stitching everywhere and the sort of finish you’d anticipate from a shop-bought lingerie set.

The two items I wasn’t super keen on with my previous ViVi2Anna set are each ‘fixed’ with this one too – the lower half of the bra cups come lined (it was never a comfort concern ahead of but did make the bra appear somewhat unfinished), and the single hook band fastening has been replaced by a double-column one for a tad far more assistance.

Verdict: 10 / 10

Thong: Silver Celebration by ViVi2Anna. Suspender belt: Ariana by Esty Lingerie

Thong: Silver Celebration by ViVi2Anna. Suspender belt: Ariana by Esty Lingerie

Fit

My prior ViVi2Anna set is a 32DD and XS, and an superb fit if just the tiniest bit loose in the band. Still, I went with a 32DD/XS again and though my new set fits me extremely properly, it’s not the exact same size.

The thong is a great 2″ shorter about the waistband, and the brand band is 2″ shorter too. Which happened to operate in my favour considering that I choose a 30-band to a 32, but it is worth noting that you may encounter sizing inconsistencies if you’re ordering multiple pieces from this brand.

Verdict: 7 / 10

ViVi2Anna thong

Durability

I’ve had this set considering that December and, like my rose-print one particular, have been wearing it consistently. It is a fantastic, comfy everyday set which is specifically what I was hoping it would be. And however it is nonetheless in really very good condition, so yay!

Verdict: 9 / 10

Vivi2Anna bra review

Worth for Money

ViVi2Anna is based in Latvia but lists prices in US dollars – the Silver Celebration bra costs $ 25 (roughly £18) and she asked for just $ 10 (~£7) for the thong.

You actually can’t ask for a better deal than that, especially taking into consideration this is from an independent designer, but you’re going to get one anyway since I just received a 20% off coupon in my inbox. So if you’d like it, use CELEBRATION in her Etsy shop here until the end of April.

Verdict: 10 / 10

Final Thoughts

I do not actually have a lot far more to say, except to point out the brand’s extensive size variety – this bra is accessible up to a 40-band size, and almost all products can be custom-sized if you are outdoors of the listed sizes also.

Have you shopped with ViVi2Anna prior to? What do you consider of this sparkly style?

Maison Close ‘Villa Satine’ Bra, Thong and Garter Belt. Maison…

Maison Close ‘Villa Satine’ Bra, Thong and Garter Belt. Maison Close was a label I very first found soon after modelling for them at a lingerie show in Sydney a handful of years ago. I right away went house and ordered one of the sets I wore, a black satin and velvet style that I only haven’t posted on TDK simply because I lost the brief! ‘Villa Satine’ is my most recent MC acquisition, piquing my interest following the French brand launched it is initial US retail retailer in Soho, NYC final year. The bra is beautiful. An unlined, underwire, sheer lace is my preferred style and this 1 is exceptional. For me personally, it creates an amazing shape- lifted/supported but nonetheless natural and I like the curved higher apex of the lace. I really like the icy-blue silver shade of the satin, it’s a colour I really take pleasure in in lingerie and I consider is extremely chic. The white lace is soft, delicate, with an eyelash trim. I ordered my most commonly worn size and it was accurate. The wide garter belt is also a fantastic shape, sexy but extremely elegant. The silver sections are boned and there are adjustable hooks at the back. For all-day wear, I would recommend attaching to stay-ups or ordering the garter belt in a size smaller to avoid ‘pull down’. The mini thong is extremely mini. I below(over?)estimated it’s size. I had to exchange my regular size for a size up and it still sits super low, but is certainly created to. For a thong it is simple, tiny and comfortable, although I do think I will be getting the brief to go with this set as effectively, as I will wear it far more. All round, a gorgeous, classically attractive set from a brand I’ve only so far had optimistic experiences with.

Assessment: Pour Moi? Ditsy Bra & Thong

Author: Estelle

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

Pour Moi? is a British lingerie and swimwear brand offering on-trend pieces at reasonably priced rates, with an impressive size variety that spans 30AA to 44H (though this specific bra is a D+ a single only). They retail through their personal internet site as nicely as significant retailers like ASOS and Figleaves, so they’re relatively straightforward to get hold of (in reality Pour Moi? is the only ‘fashion’ brand stocked by my local lingerie boutique).

This Ditsy set has previously been released in a blush pink, and is currently accessible in both navy and this black.

Pour Moi Ditsy bra set review back

Appearance

I chose this black version because it is most ‘me’, combining collectively my enjoy of black lingerie and bold, striking colours.

I also liked the lightly-ruched, mesh sides on the thong. However, what I was most drawn to on this set is the embroidery. Richly-coloured, intricate embroideries are a growing lingerie trend and one I’m definitely thrilled about, but this usually comes at a value. It’s so rare to see such elaborate embroidery on a brand in Pour Moi?’s cost range!

Combine that with the pretty, scalloped edges and the Ditsy set genuinely looks like it’s far more pricey than it is. The back of the set is a small plain, but then let’s be realistic, it’s a £24 bra – it currently exceeds expectations thanks to the front!

Verdict: 9 / 10

Pour Moi Ditsy bra review

Construction

Not only does this set look excellent, it’s nicely-created also. The embroidery on the thong is backed with soft, fine mesh the upper section of the cup has no such lining but it is not at all uncomfortable. There’s absolutely no scratching or irritation that you may well anticipate with some embroidery.

Speaking of which, whilst I’m sure a lot more luxurious embroideries exist, it’s really nicely done – thick, neatly edged and quite detailed (each flower has small flecks of contrasting colour in its petals).

Verdict: 9 / 10

Pour Moi Ditsy bra in black

Match

I bought my usual bra size of 30E, and a UK size eight thong. The thong is a excellent match, and these soft, wide mesh sides are oh-so-comfortable! They’re fairly stretchy so there’s a great amount of sizing flexibility.

The bra, unfortunately, is much less perfect – it is cutting in a fair bit and I definitely want a cup size up from usual in this bra. It’s not usually I want a 30F today, so possibilities are a lot of you will be better off sizing up as well! The band on the other hand is a firm but comfortable match and feels like a normal 30.

Verdict: 7 / ten

Pour Moi Ditsy thong review

Durability

The Ditsy bra is hand-wash only, even though the thong says it can be machine washed up to 40 degrees. The greatest worry with a set like this is that the embroidery could begin unraveling, but I’ve been hand-washing it and it is held up completely so far. If you are going to machine wash the thong, I’d certainly pop it inside a mesh wash bag for this explanation.

Verdict: 8 / 10

Pour Moi Ditsy review

Worth for Cash

The Pour Moi? Ditsy bra set costs £24 for the unlined bra and £12 for the thong (though they’re both at present half that price!), so it’s not a super cheap set but it is very affordable and a fair bit more affordable than most DD+ brands.

As pointed out, this embroidery is completely beautiful and not at all some thing I anticipated to see in this price tag range – I’d absolutely be content to get this set once more at complete price.

Verdict: 10 / ten

Pour Moi Ditsy thong

Final Thoughts

Overall I’ve been genuinely impressed with this acquire, and I wouldn’t hesitate to get from Pour Moi? again. In fact I may have to purchase this in the navy shade too…

If you like the embroidery but not the unlined style, there’s also a padded version accessible, plus a short-style short.

What do you consider of this Ditsy set from Pour Moi? Have you ever bought lingerie by this brand just before?

Carol Malony Haute ‘Hope Chest’ bra and thong. I adore this set….

Carol Malony Haute ‘Hope Chest’ bra and thong. I love this set. Pale blue and cream, especially with lace, always gives major Marie Antoinette vibes. The blue is silk and the cream is sheer lace with small tulle trim. The fit on this is impeccable, as is the shape and support it provides for such a fabric. It’s just a great cut on me personally, I suppose, and an unlined sheer underwire is my favorite style. And even though I usually prefer a brief, this thong is great! Very comfortable and not at all annoying. Both the bra and thong have ruched straps and that is another detail I love in general. Conventional 2 hook, 3 length adjustor at the back of the bra and adjustable straps. I particularly love the small gems on the lace, which, being so tiny and fine, are an example of this detail done well. It so often is not. I can’t find fault with this set, I really can’t. I just adore it.I found some of the full ‘Hope Chest’ sets- even with suspender!- on eBay HERE!

Bras N Things ‘Louisa’ Plunge Bra and Thong. To be truthful, it…

Bras N Things ‘Louisa’ Plunge Bra and Thong. To be honest, it was the colours of this set that drew me to it and not the shape or style. I don’t usually wear push-up bras OR thongs as I find the first unnecessary (I’m usually trying to make my bust appear smaller, not larger) and the latter uncomfortable. But I loved the intermingled shades of pink, purple, blue and green on floral lace and to me they had a quirky, ‘80s tropical’ vibe. I’ve actually found this to be a good basic set though and I especially love the thin straps on both pieces and simple shapes, as these aspects make ‘Louisa’ a very versatile option for beneath a wide variety of outerwear. The thong is a simple, ‘V’ string style. Unlike a lot of them, this doesn’t ride up on me, move around or cut in. The bra I like a lot more than I though I would, unlike the hugely padded push-ups of the Victoria’s Secret variety, this just gives my breasts a lot of LIFT and ‘push-together’, rather than an actual massive size increase. It creates a ridiculously hot silhouette beneath a black strappy singlet! The quality is mid-range and good for price- especially considering how comfortable it has been since it’s first was, where softened up considering, I ordered a 10(32)d and 10(US4) and sizing for both was perfect. I really like ‘Louisa’ and it’s been one of my more surprising, sneaker sets. Bras N Things ‘Louisa’ here
