So… recently I have been a very lucky girl, the lovely ladies at Panache have sent me something from their gorgeous new Serenity bridal range to review and a few weeks ago, I received the Serenity basque with matching thong and suspender belt in the post.
When I opened the package, my breath was literally taken away; I cannot adequately put into words just how gorgeous this set really is. The attention to detail is second-to-none, the fabric and detail are lush and it feels like luxury-quality lingerie straight out of the parcel. It is made of truly gorgeous soft satin material, exquisite lace and features little pearl embellishments across the fabric, making it such a beautiful and special item.
I requested the thong and suspenders in a UK size 10 and the basque in a 32E – and the fit on the basque is really fantastic; the cups fit my boobs properly and it feels snug and secure without nipping or digging in to my skin, which is a rare find in a basque.
Normally, I often find that a basque fits well in the cups, but the wires and boning can be uncomfortable under the arms – or the shoulder straps end up doing all the heavy lifting, and they can feel sore after a few hours’ wear. Another annoying aspect of basques is the “roll” effect in the midriff that happens after prolonged wear, but nothing like this happens with the Serenity.
There is no pull on the shoulder straps at all, which tells me that it fits me perfectly in this size.
The thong and suspender are also a really snug fit; the fabric is lovely and soft with just enough stretch and give, but with no uncomfortable digging in or pinching.
Obviously this is a bridal range, but the set is so beautiful and comfortable that I don’t see why it should only be worn once on that special day – or evening!
I can envisage me wearing this under some of my dresses to formal events and even somewhere like the races – and I could definitely wear this all day.
Anyone seeking out some luxury, affordable lingerie for their special day should give some consideration to the Serenity – it’s a truly beautiful set, it feels amazing on – and I would imagine it would help see you through a long day of wedding dancing and celebrating.
I usually try to be as honest as I possibly can with a review – and often try not to be too negative about an item – but I really have no dislikes of the Serenity at all – I really struggled to find any kind of flaws or niggles that would give me pause for thought; the set is well manufactured, it fits perfectly and has some lovely finishing touches to make it a truly special item.
The basque is priced at £89, which isn’t cheap, but you get what you pay for. The thong is £24 and the suspender is £36, there is also a matching brief available which is priced at £26, bra and strapless bra are both £56 and £59 respectively. To me this set is 100% worth the money, its beautifully made and would make any bride feel like a princess.
