Before I start this review post I should mention that I am wearing a different bra size from the last lingerie reviews I did. I decided to measure myself using the Sophisticated Pair calculator after realising that my bra band was far too loose. You can find their calculator here. So I measured myself up and typed the numbers in and out popped ….32E! So, the first thing I purchased for my newly sized boobs was a Curvy Kate Angel bra set in black and white. I really like Curvy Kate as a brand, they’re properly sized for D+ boobs, unlike a lot of high street bras, and they are in fun, with funky colours and designs. As you can see I went for the full set as it was in the sale – I thought ‘why not?’. The bra fits really nicely, it holds my boobs in place and feels[…]
So this was my first Curvy Kate set, amd unless you live under a rock you will know that Curvy Kate is a fab lingerie range from here in the UK which specialises in larger cup sizes, but makes the effort to design their lingerie to look sexy and appealing to younger buyers. I recently got refitted and discovered that I am a 32E in a bra, so I thought I would treat myself to some swanky new lingerie. I bought my set from the Brastop website, as they cater for bigger boobs and they always have really good prices and deals on offer. I went for the Curvy Kate Angel Bra in bluebell and white, because, lets face it, there just isn’t enough blue lingerie around, which is another thing I really like about Curvy Kate: the colours and designs are fun, not just the usual black, white and[…]
I had never heard of Krisline before visiting Brastop and I thought I would give it a try. Krisline is a Polish company specialising in larger cup lingerie up to a H cup. Their designs are a bit more traditional with lots of lace and more neutral colours. I went for the Queen Body as I really wanted to try one. The body fit really well, the cup sizes were accurate (I’m a 32E) and it felt secure without feeling like shape underwear and was really comfortable. This body is fantastic for creating a smooth silhouette, it would also be terrific under a sheer blouse with high-waisted trousers or a skirt. I love it so much I may have to purchase another in black!
So this is my first proper “lingerie” review here on Tricky Little Corset, and I thought I would go for something that sums up the title of the blog (ie. a bit of classy, 50s-inspired corsetry) with the Gossard Ooh La La corslette in noir from Brastop. As soon as I saw this corslette, I knew I wanted it – it’s difficult to describe why, but it kind of just leaps out at you, and I wanted something that looks both sexy and stylish – and classy. I’ve had plenty of basques in my time, but never anything as elaborate as this. Straight out of the parcel, it felt like something that’s well made and designed; sturdy materials, beautiful lace pattern and reinforced stitching. It’s certainly not flimsy, but equally, it doesn’t feel like it’s made of canvas and girders. I was genuinely excited when I unwrapped it – and[…]
