Lejaby Elixir Rosae set (32F/85F & Small)

DSC08934

Lejaby, with its full-bust range “Elixir”, was the first French brand that made me feel “included” when I thought I should actually give up on lace delicacy for my G/GG cup. While some other brands reserved beautiful lace and embroideries to their core size range, Lejaby Elixir was offering dainty lingerie up to a G cup in different cup shapes. I know a G cup is not much for nowaday full-bust lingerie industry but it is still rare to find luxury brands that use the same material for their core sizes range and full-bust size range.

[This set was gifted to me by UK Lingerie for the purpose of a review. This doesn’t affect my opinions.]DSC08991

Let me explain… Although French Lingerie is known for luxury detailing and high price point, something it always missed in my opinion is inclusivity. I have found myself out of most French lingerie brands size range after the age of 16 while I was a UK 32FF/G. Indeed, everytime I went to a lingerie store the bra fitters used to tell me I was a 85F(32F), F being basically the bigger cup size they had in stock and it was usually too small for me in the cup and too big in the band. I felt like my needs as a full busted teen were ignored by the lingerie industry for such a long time… So I just stopped buying lingerie in stores and discovered British lingerie, which saved my boobs.

DSC08958
However, I have to admit that I was still a little bit sad that I couldn’t wear the fine tulle and lace or gorgeous drape detailing that were only available in core sizes. This lack never disappeared since I couldn’t afford British luxury full-bust lingerie which is usually less affordable than brands like Chantelle or Lejaby, essentially because you can hardly get it on sale. And then, one day I discovered Lejaby Elixir, which was basically what I always wanted to wear : fine French lingerie that could fit me and still make me feel young at a time when lingerie made me feel like I was more than my age and beautiful when I was self-conscious about my body. I think Lejaby makes lingerie for a wide age range of women. Colored, black or white, simple or featuring ruffles and huge tulle bows… This brand is one of my favorite.

DSC08981_1

I know I am being talkative, but before starting this review, I should probably give you a quick introduction about French brands sizing.
I have heard plenty of things about an International size system but I truly think YOU CAN’T RELY on it. You can’t translate a UK 30GG into a FR 30J. This will simply not help you. EU sizing chart can be helpful for Polish brands but it has nothing to do with French brands. Actually French brands tend to run bigger than UK brands, both in the band and in the cup. While I can sometimes get away with a F cup in France, this is quite impossible when I buy UK bras (I usually need GG cups). Nevertheless, brands don’t usually translate bra sizes on tags, except for band sizes. So on a French bra sold in England you might read FR 85F/UK 32F/Int 70F and then think that this bra runs really big. My best advice would be to try in store at least once, since French brands tend to be very consistent in the sizing. And now let’s go back on track! 🙂

DSC08973_1

Guys, I would recognize Lejaby’s lingerie from thousands, but the Rosae set really caught my attention in a different way and you might guess why! This definitely has to do with the big embroidered guipure rose that pops out like a big brooch. I find it gorgeous. It looks old fashion in a very nice way and really gives life to that set. Because of this element Rosae reminds me of ballroom dancing clothing. I instantly think of tango. Warm colors, beautiful arabesques embroiderie that recall sensuality, impetuosity.  This set also exists in black but I had a crush on the red colorway. It feels fierce and regal. The quality of fabrics is noticeable, it feels precious. I like the touch of this high quality microfiber on the band of the bra and the panty.

DSC08946_1

I own several sets from this brand but this one is the first full cup I tried.
Lejaby classifies its full bust bras in different categories. First, some style goes only up to a F cup (usually the “balconnet 3T” which is more like a plunge but also some halfcup bras called “corbeille” in French) and some goes up to a G cup ( “cerclé 3t” or “cerclé” which look either like full cup, or balconnet bras as we know them in the UK system). Note that 3T means that the bra is made in three part.
I think the full cup are a better fit for even to full on top breasts while the balconnets have less room at the top.
This time I am glad I went for a F cup since I am very full on bottom, I think this bra could even fit bigger breasts than mine depending on their shape. However a smaller size would be too small at the sides for me. I would love to try a 30G to see if it fixes the top part wrinkles on my smaller breast. You must know that French sizes don’t have double letters so a French F cup runs bigger than a UK F cup, plus Lejaby Elixir range runs quite big.

DSC08967_1
What I really appreciate with French lingerie is how light weighted it is. Even for bigger busts. But note that it usually doesn’t give much uplift, it is more like a natural rounded shape under clothes. The wires are not super narrow neither wide, actually they are shorter than the ones I encountered with British and Polish bras. Because of that, I can sometimes have my breasts being too full on the sides to be fully encapsulated while the cup volume is big enough for me. With this bra, I would say that this is not really an issue but depending on the position I can see that my bigger breast shows a little bit at the side. That said, these wires are super soft and comfy and the gore tacks perfectly.
The band features 4 sets of 2 hooks and eyes, something I noticed with several Elixir bras. I would say that this band is true to size as a FR 32 band but will feel looser than usual UK 32 bands. I am glad there are plenty of hooks and eyes so I can start at the second set and still have 2 other positions for the future.

DSC08956_1
The straps are not fully adjustable but are short and wide enough for my taste. I love the satin elastic used for this part, it is kind of shiny and doesn’t only look utilitarian, plus the embroidery of the cup continues on the front part of the straps.

The coordinate in size Small is perfect for me. I usually wear a UK size 10. On the tag it is said to be a size 2 which is the size I usually pick with French brands if that can help. The microfibre as I said before is super soft. The finishes are beautiful and I think it offers a nice and flattering coverage. I like the medium rise that allows this set to be worn very easily under clothes. You can also find an high waisted and a brazilian version which are gorgeous as well.

DSC08951_1
I am so glad I got to try this set. I am usually not into red lingerie or clothing since it makes me feel like everybody has his eyes on me but I really love this shade of red. It really feels audacious but elegant at the same time. I would say it has this femme fatal vibe that is actually far away from my character but definitely makes me want to discover other lingerie horizons. 😀 (Also I watched too many Miss Fisher episodes and she might be rubbing off on me)

What do you think of red lingerie? Do you associate it to special occasion or does it make you feel brave?

This is a long post so I hope it is clear enough, ^_^ anyway feel free to ask question!

Sunny kisses,

Wen

 

 

 

 

 

 

Freya Fancies bralette and chemise review

DSC08731_edited4_edited_edited.jpg

Can bralette equal support? That is a question I have been asking myself a lot since I started considering the idea of wearing this type of garments.
Bralettes are soft, comfy, they make us feel… Hum… Free? Can we say that they basically are the equivalent for PJs in the underwear world?
For me, during a long time a bralette, also called brassière in French, was a bra for little girls and teens. I also associated it to small bust lingerie.

**These garments have been gifted to me by Large Cup Lingerie for the purpose of a review, all thoughts and opinions are mine.**

DSC08722_edited4_edited_edited

However, last year, I started noticing independent designers saying they could make proper bralettes for full busted ladies. Of course made-to-measurements stuff are rarely cheap. And then Freya launched the Fancies collection. Bras, bralettes and chemises in plenty of colorways. All the garments seemed to be made in order to be practical but still cute. The bralettes especially were supposed to provide the same support as bras for full busted ladies.

DSC08733_edited4_edited

According to Sweet Nothing’s review, the size range covered by this bralette should go from 28B to 38HH.  Cha, the owner of LCL was kind enough to send me these bralettes (navy) and chemises (black) in size Small (supposed to fit 28 E-FF, 30 D-F, 32 C-DD, 34 B-D, 36B) and Medium ( 28 G-GG, 30 FF-G, 32 E-FF, 34 DD-F, 36 C-E, 38 B-D). Note that I am a small 30GG at the time. So technically non of these sizes should have fitted. But guess what? Both of them did!

DSC08739_edited4_edited_edited

First off, it seems that bralettes, although they don’t give “uplift”, make the breasts look smaller than bras do. Maybe because they don’t really allow projection. They can actually “hold” the breasts but the shape and support they give really depend on the way they are sewn.

My breasts are in between sizes (as usual) in this range. Apparently, the Small isn’t deep enough for me even though it is quite right in the band and the Medium would be alright in the cup but the band is too large. However, sizing-wise there are some differences between the chemise and the bralette.

DSC08721_edited4_edited_edited.jpg

Well, when I received the garments about 1,5 month ago, the bralette in Small wouldn’t even pass my breasts. At least it didn’t seem to, but the Medium fitted like a dream. That said, the chemise in Medium was way too large in the band and fitted large in the cup too. For this one, the Small was a better choice. So in these pictures I am wearing the bralette in Medium and the chemise in Small. However, it seems that holidays make me lose weight (I guess eating only cereals, apples and almond milk because of lazyness doesn’t help) and now, the bralette in Small although it is too tight in the cup, can “contain” my breasts. I would easily fall out of this one, though. Note also that the straps are fully-adjustable in both pieces.

DSC08678_edited4_edited.jpg

I think these bralette and chemise would fit better full on bottom women. Indeed, I heard that some people experienced their breasts to get out of the bralette during their sleep which never happened to me and I have worn it a lot (as you can see by the crumpled fabrics on the third picture ^^’ ). Also, I feel like the big difference between these two garments are the support they provide. The bralette seems to be made to be supportive but the chemise is bigger under the breasts even in the size Small. I imagine that the support is considered as less important with a chemise as you mainly need to be comfortable to sleep.

DSC08700_edited4_edited_edited.jpg

To be honest, I couldn’t go out with this bralette but it is not because I would not feel secure, it would be more because of the shape it gives to my breasts. It is almost like it flattens them (not in a painful way, though). But I guess that is also how it provides support. In fact I am very happy to wear it all day long. It is like a supportive cropped top so I can just lounge around in my apartment without shirt and without looking naked. That said, it is not the same feeling as a bra because my breasts will always meet each other at the middle at some point. They aren’t squeezed, though!

DSC08714_edited4_edited_edited

I also enjoy the chemise design. I first thought it wasn’t that pretty but then I saw it in real life and I really liked the difference of opacity between the different parts of this piece! Also the lovely lace at the sides makes it definitely prettier and more elegant in the way it falls. The little bow at the junction of the lace (on both of these pieces) has tiny white polka dots which is an adorable detail here.
For me, the black and navy were the prettier colors (but y’all should know I mostly wear black and navy blue so I might not be the best opinion to listen to on this x)). Nevertheless I am happy to see that Freya made these garments in a lot of colorways and also at an affordable price so it is easy to own several of them or to replace them if they get damaged.

Tell me your thoughts about bralettes? Did you find one that was satisfying? Have you ever tried the Fancies collection?

Sending love, as always,

xoxo Wen

Discovering Samanta lingerie: The Daisy set (65H & M)

Spring is finally here. Meaning, 70% of rain, 30% of sun, and around 12ºC more or less constantly. But I am happy. A lot of opportunities are coming up and I feel blessed even if life seemed determined to make me learn everything by the tough way. I am where I am supposed to be.

**This set was gifted to me by Samanta lingerie for the purpose of a review. All thoughts and opinions are mines.**

DSC08498_edited45_edited.jpg

Today I want to introduce to you a set that is not only unusual for my wardrobe but from a brand I had never tried before. The Daisy set by Samantha lingerie is what I needed to wear during these cloudy days. I think my pictures hardly give it justice.

For those who don’t know it yet, Samanta is a Polish brand which focuses on very feminine designs to create a wide selection of every day lingerie and nightwear. This brand has now 24 years of experience and claims its lingerie to be created by women for women.

DSC08497_edited45_edited.jpg

When Samanta’s designer offered to send me this set, I was a little bit worried that it would be too girly for my taste since I am not into white feminine lingerie, but once I finally held it in my hands… GUYS ! I loved it.

I received the set in a 65H for the bra and the coordinate in Medium and these sizes are just fine for me .

DSC08526_edited45_edited

The Daisy actually exists in 6 shapes of bras and 3 shapes of coordinates. One thing I really like with Polish brands is their ability to created the same design in multiple cuts so that the costumer always has a chance to find the right one for their size and body shape. So I received the A922 cut for the bra and the boxers.

I know I must sound very excited, but guys, I am! The pattern is very nice and I don’t know what exactly is the difference between it and my other balconnet bras but I love its shape. Also, I don’t think I have ever had a set that white. It is like immaculate and so bright! After these 5 months of winter (and dark lingerie),  it feels so refreshing!

DSC08591_edited_edited45_edited.jpg

Also, can we talk about the details? Daisies used to be my favorite flowers as a kid. They are so simple and yet so nice and welcoming. I like that Samantha went for a monochromatic look with these flowers. It makes this set classy and simple. I could have it in nude, black and white and they would be my go-to everyday set.

The gore is narrow and feels also very nice against my sternum. I mean, even when I lay down, I still don’t feel any pressure. The wires are also very narrow and just like the gore they sit comfortably. So far I haven’t got to complain about them. This bra is a real everyday bra, I have been wearing it for like 12h hours straight and didn’t feel the oppressive need to remove it at any point.

DSC08520_edited45_edited_edited.jpg

The back features 3 sets of 2 hooks and eyes but I don’t think I would prefer it with additional hooks. The straps are fully-adjustable, short (as you can see, I didn’t even need to tighten the left one, note that it is also my bigger breast’s side) and cushiony, which makes them very comfortable, and certainly prevent them from slipping. You can’t see it on my pictures but the embroidered daisies continue on the straps.
The workmanship is so great on this bra… The finishes are neat and the fabrics are soft yet sturdy. I particularly like that the side support is almost invisible. You must have noticed that some brands add some side support to the bras after a certain size (usually a G cup). Most of the time they also “slightly” change the pattern.

DSC08595_edited_edited45_edited.jpg

Well, the result is more likely to be unattractive to my eyes, but not this time. Although you can see the side support on some picture it is due to the light since the brand used a very transparent and light mesh instead of a sturdy white fabric. The bra itself gives a nice natural, yet rounded shape to my breasts.
As you can see, my smaller breasts would probably need a smaller size but considering how great my bigger breast fits in the cup and how symmetrical the overall look is, I think this bra is a great fit.

The coordinates are also very nice to wear. I adore the sheer back of these boxers! It has a satin touch and I really appreciate the seamless edges! The size Medium is a great fit for my bum. This bottom feels very secure, it doesn’t go up or down and my butt does not eat it either ^^ . I think Polish brands know very well how to make comfy bottoms, I always find them bum-friendly. I haven’t talk about the cute flat bows on the gore and on the boxer but I really like this detail, despite its size, I think it completes the set without being too present.

DSC08616_edited45_edited.jpg

This set is a very nice surprise and I hope I’ll get to try this brand again in the future! If you are not a fan of white lingerie this set also exists in beige and green colorways. The green one looks actually very nice! I think the ratio quality/price is pretty good with this brand. This lingerie set is young, delicate and makes me feel pretty without compromising the fit. Yeah, you get it: I am conquered.

Hope it is sunny in your part of the world!

Yours truly,

Wen. ❤

Wellfitting Meow Longline Demi review

A long time ago, I remember myself lusting after some longlines that were only available up to a D or F cup, and even when they went up to a G cup, it was the shallowest G cup ever. I even got to the conclusion that brands usually make the last cup of their size range only to be able to look more inclusive but kept making exactly the same size range with the wrong letters on the products… Well, all that is in the past and now I own a handful of longlines that fit me properly. This is maybe my favorite bra style. It makes me feel dressed up under my clothes. I like this old fashion feeling of wearing something a little bit heavier with more coverage underneath.

DSC08258_edited44_edited44.jpg**I received this bra free of charge for the purpose of a review. All opinions are my own.This post contains an affiliated link.**

Another thing about me is that I am definitely a cat lady… So, I guess you already made the equation… When Joanna from Wellfitting offered to send me their Meow longline, I was more than happy to review it.
I am not very into prints on my lingerie but I found this one so fun and unusual! It has this weird vintage look that I really enjoy! I seriously think the full bust industry often forgets that big boobs also want fun prints. I mean, if you are in between an A and a D cup, you can find all over the internet, or just going to Undiz, loads of funny printed bras… Superhero bras, cartoons, funny sentences or citations… But it seems like full busted ladies have to be all feminine and only can get colorful flowers /fruits or any other things related to what society finds cute for women.

DSC08266_edited
Ahah I don’t want to annoy you with my thoughts about society and my desire for Batman inspired lingerie that would fit me… I just mean I think Wellfitting is bringing something very cool to us. (You should have a look at their very new style… Two words: Unicorn print!)
So I was originally sent the bra in a 32J/70J which is the size I always pick when buying from Comexim, but I found the bra to be too small/not enough projected for my breasts. I am actually a UK 30GG and this bra in a 32K fits me way better.

DSC08273_edited1couleur.jpg
I was actually pretty surprised with the construction of this bra. It seems to be something in between a halfcup and a plunge. The cup has 3 vertical seams and the wires are wider than my other Comexim bras’. But they are perfect for my roots.
This bra provides a rounded shape. It is made to provide cleavage and is not very deep. It might be a good idea to size up in this bra especially if you are projected. But once you find the right size for you (and Wellfitting has a super wide size range, and a pretty easy return policy) the result is amazing. I never got a cleavage like the one this bra gives me before.

DSC08241_edited
You can’t really tell with most of my pictures and you must think that my right boob doesn’t fill the top of the bra, but once my breasts take their natural place in the cups (about 30min after wearing it, moving and all) they fill them completely and I finally get some cleavage. I think the only picture that shows the final result is the penultimate one.
Also, I put on weight a little bit since I received this bra and my bigger breast feels a little tight sometimes. (See the picture below)

DSC08289_edited_edited44_edited.jpg
However, the bra feels very secure for a “push up” bra. The gore is very narrow and low, which makes it super comfortable. I don’t really feel it actually. It tacks but it seems to be so low that it only tacks at one point then the wires do the rest of the job. I personally like that.
The back of this longline is very wide and features 3 sets of 5 hooks-and-eyes, which makes it feel like a tight crop top in my opinion. This wide band is soft and warms me up in this cold weather. 🙂 I like that it is quite stable and doesn’t roll too much.
The straps are very well situated, they do not fall out of my shoulders and they also are fully adjustable.

DSC08261_edited44_edited.jpg

Something I like with the overall look of this bra is the black edges that make everything look clean and finished. The cute unusual bow on the gore reminds me of the ones I make when I pack presents. It goes pretty well with the design of the bra. Also, I noticed some shiny curved lines on the prints. I personally don’t find them either bad nor necessary. I easily forget them actually. (Check My Fashion Insider‘s blog to see what I am talking about).
This bra is well-made and I find the construction very appropriate for big breasts. I rarely get along with plunges or half cup, either because my breasts are too FOB or because my nipples are too high-set,  so I really like this hybrid. I can have it all. Plus it is a longline 😀 . I am super glad I got to review it!
Note that Wellfitting bras are manufactured by Comexim, so if you aren’t familiar with this name, that means, you must allow arround 4 weeks after your order to receive your bra. I think it is worth it but yes, it requires patience :p .

A sheer armor: Scantilly Knock Out…

I don’t know if you remember my obsession for nude/sheer lingerie last year? Well, it only stopped to become stronger. The first time I saw the Scantilly Knock Out at Curve last year, I was head over heels. My first impression was that it had one badass look to it, also it looked fairly wearable and very FOB friendly. But I was also concerned about the shade of this beige mesh. Although I usually get away with “nude” colorways if they are lightly caramelized, I thought I might look like wearing a pale foundation in this set.

DSC08127_edited_edited_edited446

I think if it was just a little bit more transparent it could fit more carnations but well, at the end of the day it doesn’t look too bad on me, does it? 😀 I wish Scantilly could make this set in different shades!
I originally bought the bra in a 30GG but it was way too big even for my bigger breast so I exchanged it for a 30G (Brastop is incredibly efficient! I do recommend shopping with them, especially if you live in North America!). I think also because it was too big, the pale foundation effect was too present. But when I finally got my 30G bra, it was way better, in both shape, and the effect on my breasts. Weirdly the band also felt tighter, which was great because this bra was my first Scantilly try and I was under the impression that their bands ran pretty big. With the new one, the band is a comfy 30band.

DSC08134_edited_edited44

This bra is very generous in the cup. I can only wear a 30G in Love Claudette and Gossard bras and I usually wear a 30H in Curvy Kate bras. I think it would be best for even breasts. Mines fill the sides and bottom of the cup but for a “perfect fit” I would need to be more full on top. The bra (and the whole set) has a lot of stretch and it is very comfy. I am surprised how wearable this bra is for me as I  don’t get along with plunges most of the time.

DSC08130_edited_edited44H.jpg

The wires are rather wide, but they are very good for my own roots. I think you need to be even or at least full on the side to fill this bra properly. As you can see, even if I fill it, there are still some wrinkles on the upper part of the cup sides.
The gore tacks nicely and doesn’t hurt. I really like low gores but I think I particularly like this one because of the cutouts and the rose gold ring that makes it look very classy without any compromise on the support.

Overall I like wearing this bra, it is secure and comfortable. The additional strap that goes around the neck is fully adjustable just like the other ones. It is very light and doesn’t feel like a halter neck. It is just an aesthetic detail.

DSC08136_edited_edited4446.jpg

About the coordinates, I bought both of them in a size Small and it is perfect for me. The thong is very nice, I like that it sits high enough on my hips. It is very transparent and I’d say it does not leave so much space for pubic hair (well, except if you don’t mind).
The back of the thong looks simple but I like it as well because the contrast between the skin and the trims is everything. I think some of you might prefer the high waisted brief but I thought my tiny hips wouldn’t look so well in that brief.

DSC08149_edited_edited446.jpg

About the suspender belt, as you can see it is super cool. I am crazy about the fact that it can be attached to the thong (or brief). The whole set looks almost like a bodysuit because of that. This is seriously a great idea. However, I wonder if I am too tall or something because I have to wear the suspender’s straps at the maximum length and weirdly enough it still can’t stay high enough on my waist. I am not saying the set doesn’t look good but if you pay attention the straps that attaches the suspender to the brief is too long so even if I try to make it as short as possible I have to hide it behind the mesh. If the suspender could be worn longer, I would be able to wear it higher and so the strap could sit flat against my belly. I will probably sew it to make it shorter.

DSC08201_edited_edited444f.jpg

Apart from these aspects the whole set does its job very well and I am glad I bought it. It makes me feel somehow like Xena the warrior princess. Don’t ask me why. It is just my feeling, but it might be the rings…

I got the bra on Brastop with a 13% off code if I remember well and the thong and suspender on Fligleaves with a 15% off code. I like these two websites because the shipping is very affordable. I think Belle-lingerie UK, Figleaves and Brastop have the best shipping rate to Canada. Brastop is very very efficient. When I had to send back my 30GG I just had to call them in order to reserve a smaller bra to avoid any deception or additional shipping cost. Everything went smooth so far.

I am sorry I am not very present, my life is getting so overwhelming… I am currently exhausted. But I read your comments and will try my best to answer more often.

Tchüß!

Metalhead lingerie review: Scantilly Unleash bra

dsc07891_edited

Guys, I am not gonna lie, I am having a hard time blogging this month. It is hard to take pictures and it is hard to write something that would not sound as pessimistic as my actual mood. But today I felt like it was time to put myself together and write about something that looks like me and that makes me feel great. So here is my review of the Scantilly Unleash bra that I have been lusting after since the first time I saw it this summer at Curve NY. (Sadly I won’t be at Curve this time because, I am to busy with school to just take 3days off at the beginning of the week 😥 )

dsc07855_edited

I took advantage of December’s sales to put my hands on several Scantilly sets at a reasonnable price but I heared that the Unleash coordinate ran very big and I didn’t want to take a chance since I am already wearing the smaller size available. Instead, I got some faux leather shorts from La Senza, and I think they work pretty well together.

dsc07885_edited
If you had read my Curve NY preview last year, you must know that I loved everything about the Unleash set. Especially its biker style. I mean, seriously, this set it me:
⇒ Black colorway : checked
⇒ Gold rose buckle: checked
⇒ Faux leather: checked
⇒ Half-cup cut: checked
⇒ Overall perfect style to go to a metal concert: checked
I truly loved the design of the high waisted panty too…

dsc07894_edited
So I bought the Unleash bra in a 30H following the advices of my dear Hcup Chronicles who is truly a specialist when it comes to Scantilly :p! As often she got it right and this was the right size for me. I have to warn you that you might need different sizes depending on the bra you buy from this brand. I actually own four sets in 3 different bras sizes. For this one, I think it is preferable to size up if you want your breasts to stay in the cup through the day. Most people I saw on social medias said they got it in a size too small put loved the effect on their breasts. So it is up to you. Having high set nipples, I wouldn’t be able to size down.

DSC07875_edited.jpg
I found the bra to be surprisingly comfy. The cups are like pillows and the wires sit softly on my skin. I think the band runs more like a 32 band so take this in consideration if you are a 28band and wanted to try a 30band in this bra.  I wear it at the first set of hooks when I don’t want to feel like I am wearing a bra but I feel more secure at the second set of hooks.
The gore tacks gently against my sternum and the bra itself stays in place through the day. The edge of the cup are quite tall and the straps are rather short. I really like short fully adjustable straps but I think the high edges might bother some armpits. They actually don’t bother me but I feel them sometimes. Also the wires are wide but they are great for my breasts. I fill the cups entirely on the sides.

I don’t know how it is for other ladies but my main issue with this bra is that my breasts tend to come out of it very quickly. It is like it has enough space to contain them but an invisible force push them up and within one hour half of my nipples are out. They eventually stay this way for the whole day so I think this is how my breasts shape sit in this cup. The pictures are not very accurate in that sens that I had to always put my breasts back inside the cup to look decent. I don’t mean to lie to you about this bra fit but I don’t feel like showing my nipples so freely on my blog. Plus the bra looks actually like that if I spend my day sat at my desk studying or not moving so much but as soon as I have to hurry you can be sure my nipples won’t stay hidden. I also think this bra is more full on top friendly. Since I am full on bottom, I don’t get this freaking crazy cleavage that I have seen on other ladies… I don’t complain, ahah, just note that if you are FOB you might not get the same two cakes on a plate effect as the brand’s models.

One would say that Scantilly makes bedroom pieces so it doesn’t matter if your breasts don’t behave in their lingerie but for me there is rarely such a thing as bedroom pieces… 99% of the things I buy are for my own satisfaction plus I am kind of picky when it comes to fit… I really prefer being able to wear my lingerie at anytime because if not I know I just won’t wear it. So I really like putting this bra on but it is true that I wish I could wear it more often. However I do not regret this purchase because WHO DOESN’T NEED FAUX LEATHER LINGERIE IN THEIR DRAWER? Plus I feel super badass when wearing it. I could just put it on and stay undressed for the rest of the day. This would be a great satisfaction. One day, one of my girls told me I looked like I was about to give a concert in this set. 😀 Best compliment ever, right? Would just need to practice guitar a little bit more often…

It is a sunny day and I feel good. Hope y’all have a great Sunday too!

Lot of love!

Yours truly,
