The first time I saw the Gossard Desire, it was on a 2cakeonaplate article about AW15 upcoming styles… I just fell in love. Since this day I was overseeing Gossard facebook page to be the first to buy this beauty (even if I knew it would take a big part of my student budget…) . Then, october came and my birthday too… I had to put my hands on it. As if the lingerie God heard me, Gossard’s newsletter gave me a -20% code the week after my birthday. NO CHOICE. HAD TO BUY IT.
Less than one week after having placed my order, the object of my desires was at home.
I’m actually a small 30GG so I bought a 32G because Gossard don’t sell my size. My first impression was “DAAAMN these cups are huge!”. My roomate found it very funny then she wanted to compare with one of her bra cup.
Yet, after trying it, I realized I shouldn’t size down in the cup, but it would be magic if I could buy a 30GG.
The fact is that I ordered in the same time the Gossard Glossies in 30G ( my usual size in gossard unpadded bra) and the difference between the bands firmness was huge. I wear it at the medium hook to extend the life of my bra but I could comfortably close it at the first hook. I was a bit surprised as Gossard 32 band are usually more close to a 30 band.
However, after wearing it for several hours I find it to be correct. The bra gives a round shape ( I was worried about that because I tried in the past the Floral print plunge gossard bra and it really didn’t fit me). I have to say that the lace are absolutely marvelous!!! I do love longline bras, I find them so elegant! This one is no exception. I feel like a queen (or like wonderwoman) when wearing it.
The biggest issue with this bra are the cup edges… They are too close to my armpit and to be honest it is a bit disturbing. Also, the wires are not firmly into my infra mammary fold ( maybe a 30 band would solve this problem). I don’t know if these issues are the result of a bad adaptability of the style to my size but I know it could be a real inconvenience for narrow wires lovers.
I bought the matching brazilian knickers in a XS (as usual with Gossard) but this time I wonder if I shouldn’t take the S because the elastic create some muffin top… I don’t like that but as I am not sure that the S would not be too big, and as my roomate told me it was fine, I think I will just go more often to the gym…
But at the end, I think I really love the Desire. It’s my first “boudoir” set and I think it is one of the things that mark the beginning of a new part of my life.
