Video review of the Paysanne basque by Silhouette lingerie. This is a beautiful, form-fitting black corset-style basque in black with suspenders and detachable shoulder straps – watch the video for my full review!
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[…]
The Gossard Retrolution has been an object of desire to me for a while now, so you can imagine how excited I was when I discovered that it was on sale at House of Fraser. If you have read my review of the Gossard Ooh La La corslette you will know I had a bit of trouble with the sizing, so with this in mind I went for a cup size smaller – and I was not disappointed. So, I bought the Retrolution panty girdle in a small and the longline plunge bra in a 32DD (I usually wear a 32E) from House of Fraser. The first thing that struck me was the quality; it is absolutely second-to-none, the little details Gossard have added to the Retrolution range are similar to those on the Ooh La La range – everything that matters is there in the design, including all-metal fittings[…]
So a couple of days ago I discovered Pinterest, yes I know I know I am sooo three years ago. Anyway I was doing a bit of afternoon “research” and I came across this little beauty and more importantly this fantastic brand! So here we go, introducing the Kiss Me Deadly – Elle robe. As you can see, it’s available in three beautiful colours from Kiss Me Deadly, who make some of the most incredible boudoir wear, retro lingerie and corsetry, but I think my favourite is the red! ON saying that, I can’t quite make up my mind, as the black is beautiful – and the purple is exquisite too. So once again Santa Claus, if you are reading my blog, you know what to do for my Christmas this year… Which is your favourite colour? Do you own an Elle? Let me know what they’re like. I’ve been really,[…]
So last weekend was two of my good friends 30th birthdays. The theme was ‘Hollywood Glamour’ so instantly I was thinking ‘I can really go over the top!’ I absolutely loved the recent pictures of the Pinupgirlclothing.com‘s Spanish inspired autumn/winter collection so I decided to try and put my own look together. I bought a gorgeous lace dress from eBay for the princely sum of £28, I have tried to show it off to its best here in the pics and in the photo gallery below. Obviously because it’s see-through I needed to wear something underneath, I went for a black satin body with bra cups from New Look, they haven’t got the exact one I have but they do have this which is very similar and the same price I paid (£12.99) For underneath the skirt I went for a couple of petticoats, I decided on two as I[…]
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[…]
