Christmas is already gone, and it’s time to enjoy our lovely presents…
This one is from Gossard. You can’t imagine my joy when the lovely Laura from Gossard gave me the opportunity to choose some ranges I would like to review. As I have almost tried all of their ranges, I decided to pick out the amazing Gypsy range in Rouge. With the help of the nice Frances I get this gorgeous set just in time for Christmas Eve!
The Gyspsy range was launched in the 1980 by Gossard, and was a very successful range. The brand is now reintroducing this vintage beauty to our delight in red, black and caramel!
I received the Gypsy non-padded bra in 30FF and the brief in XS.
The first thing you have to know with the Gypsy is that it runs reaaallly large in the cup! If you have read my previous articles you should know that I’m a 30GG (except with Gossard (30G) and, you’ll see it later, with Curvy Kate (30H)). In fact, I initially received the Gypsy bra in a 30G but it was way too big in the cup and I had no choice to ask for an exchange. It was the first time I needed a 30FF in these three last years of lingerie addiction. So, if you want to try it, maybe you should go down one or two sizes in the cup (as it is a full-cup bra, if you take a too large cup size your breast will be literally swallowed by the cup, maybe in a very bad way…). I think this sizing “issue” is a good new for all of the beautiful gals who are usually out of Gossard sizing!
The 30FF, after many worries, fits me beautifully.
The central gore which did not want to lie against my sternum with the 30G tacks perfectly with the 30FF. This bra is one of the comfiest Gossard bra I ever owned (and I own a lot of their collections…). I feel like my boobs are in a cloud. The fabric is soooft! For real, my friends! It is so sweet inside of these cups!
This bra gives a nice shape, quite round, and a good projection.
The band is true to size but maybe less tight than other Gossard bands. It is still a snug fit. Also the wires are narrow and don’t hurt at all.
I do love the colour of this set. The first pictures of the article are really close to the reality. It’s a lovely red, not too bright but still vibrant, and elegant. The lace is beautiful and stretch! These big vintage flowers make this set very different than other modern Gossard ranges and I like it. The straps are similar to the Desire straps: nicely pleated over half of the length, but a bit too thin.
Well, now the brief! What I appreciate with this piece is its “super flat lace”. I hate VPL SO MUCH, at the point that I wear thong and brazilian knickers most of the time. But this brief is, just like the bra, made with a super soft fabric and the lace follows perfectly the curves of my bottom (Ahaha!). I like it and it would be perfect if the elastic has been less tight on my hips. But it’s no big deal,as there is no real muffin top.
To summarize, I think this set works for every occasions! It provides enough support for everyday life and is pretty enough to make me feel beautiful. As I don’t have so much red in my lingerie drawer, this set is a very nice addition to my collection!
I hope you had a lovely little Christmas, with many presents but above all, lots of love!
