Bra*: c/o Damaris Mimi Holliday (available here
I'm handling a bit of a taboo subject when it comes to blogging here. In fact, I've blogged about lingerie before but never have I been sent lingerie for review. I've been dubious even whether to post these photos as I'm not the most confident lady when it comes to these things, but I believe to give an honest review surely it would be better to see the bra on - however I do understand there is a fine line between tasteful and tacky. Hopefully I've managed to achieve the first!
When it comes to underwear I'm a little scruffy. If I had my way and a bank account to fund it I'd have a lingerie cabinet lined with drawers to resemble Boux Avenue. Unfortunately my bank balance will only stretch to fund as far as H&M and New Look (who are pretty damn good at pretty undies if I do say so!). As you can imagine it was a treat to be gifted this lace, padded, luxury bra which you can find here. As I'm not particularly blessed with the biggest bosoms in the world I opted for a padded version. I usually hate padded bras that are uncomfortable and feel the necessity to make you look 3 cup sizes bigger. I'm not interested in making my chest look any bigger as I'm quite a fan of being smaller chested and hate how unnatural a lot of padded bras can look. I literally live in non-wired, triangle bras! However, this Mimi Holliday number only has a minimal amount of padding just to create enough shape, which is perfect underneath for t-shirts or blouses. It's quickly become my favourite bra and makes everyday a little better when I know I'm wearing it!
