R E V I E W | Damaris Mimi Holiday Silk Bra

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!



  1. Not tacky at all, you look gorgeous! Love the bra so much, it's beautiful!


  2. It's a lovely bra and not tacky in the slightest. You said you're a fan of triangle bras and I was wondering if you could do a post on where you get yours because when I look for some I usually only find ones that are really expensive, thanks :) xx

  3. Super jealous of your figure - having bigger boobs can be such a faff! I dream of triangle bras, maybe after I've popped out a kid ha! You look so lovely (and brave), it really suits your skin tone :) <3 Claire @ Jazzpad

  4. You have such an awesome figure! And these photos are not tacky in the slightest, you look all demure!


  5. Great Shot!


  6. Beautiful, definitely tasteful and very pretty. I was asked to review some underwear and not sure but you might have just changed my mind on it, lovely photos xx
