Given my love of the Freya Deco, I thought I’d try their Fearne bra to see if I like it just as much. Unlike the Deco, it’s seamed and has far thicker straps and the gore comes up considerably higher since it’s a half-cup rather than a plunge. That said, it doesn’t come up as much as the pictures suggest – it may be the colouring that creates that illusion, or it could just look different on smaller sizes.
Most girls’ first experiences with lingerie and how fantastic it can really look are probably through cinema or tv. As an adult, I still love a good lingerie scene and watching costume designers choose the right lingerie for that character at that moment.
A huge number of Lingerie List readers have larger cup sizes – it’s no suprise given that the average UK size is put at a 36D, but we know that a lot of women are wearing the wrong bra size too. According to Boob or Bust, the average is much closer to 32GG!
I’m always surprised at how hard it is to find a decent larger cup bra, given just how many UK women need a larger size. Here are some of my favourite brands from trying and testing the high street and online shops for a good 10+ years.
Few lingerie sets are as important as your bridal lingerie – you need it to work well with your wedding dress design, feel comfortable (nobody wants an over-tight band when they’re saying their vows or eating all that cake…), and look fantastic when you finally take your dress off.
One of the toughest things can be finding lingerie that works with the cut of your dress, especially since there are so many beautiful strapless, plunging, and backless wedding dress designs. Here are a few of the most beautiful sets I’ve found online, as well as some solutions to awkward necklines.
Payday’s coming up and I’ve seen and coveted so many designs over the last month! Here are my favourites from the last few weeks.
