For this review, I will take a brief interlude from my ongoing Comexim Victoria 3HC fit saga to introduce a discontinued Comexim favorite that I was extremely excited to get my hands on: the unforgettable Irish Coffee. Continue reading “Bra Review: Comexim Irish Coffee Plunge, 65J”

Swim Review: Midnight Grace Jasmine Underwire Twist Bandeau Bikini Top, 30F

For this swimwear review, I’ll take another look at a Figleaves.com house brand, Midnight Grace, with the bright and cheerful Jasmine Underwire Twist Bandeau Bikini Top. I wasn’t expecting much when I snapped it up at a bargain $12 in their swim sale. Now that I’ve tried and reviewed a few bra-sized tops, let’s see how Jasmine compares.

Bra Review: Evollove Fly High & Estate Blue Splash Print and Lace Balconette, 32G/32FF

Since starting this blog, one of my aims has been to draw attention to under-reviewed or underrated brands. Evollove may be just that. I bought this bra when I wore a 30G/32FF and for a long time it was my favorite bra ever, yet hardly anyone talks about Evollove. The print is unique and the materials are wonderfully smooth. Let’s talk a look. Continue reading “Bra Review: Evollove Fly High & Estate Blue Splash Print and Lace Balconette, 32G/32FF”

Swim Review: Just Peachy Dove Padded Plunge Bikini by figleaves, 30FF

My next bikini top review for this season is from Figleaves’ own brand, Just Peachy by figleaves.com. I wasn’t sure what to expect for this top as there are so few reviews from this line, but when I saw the tiny white dove print on navy, I had to add it to my cart. It was an impulse buy. For science.

Swim Review: Panache Amelia Bandeau Bikini Top, 30FF

In my search for a bikini top, the Panache Amelia bandeau caught my eye right away and has been at the top of my wishlist ever since. In photos, it really stood out to me as different from other patterned tops and I was hopeful that it would be an ideal match for the swim bottoms I already have. When my order arrived, I was super excited to try it on, having never had bra-sized swimwear before. Let’s take a look at this beauty. Continue reading “Swim Review: Panache Amelia Bandeau Bikini Top, 30FF”

Bra Review: Fantasie Marianna Half Cup, 30F

I have admired this bra from afar since it was first released. There are some bras that I think “ooh, that’s pretty” and then forget about shortly after. But Marianna has been an aesthetic favorite of mine for a long while. Fantasie lingerie is fairly expensive for my limited lingerie budget at the moment (Marianna retails at $78), so when I saw it on sale for $40, I jumped at the chance. Let’s see if she was worth it. Continue reading “Bra Review: Fantasie Marianna Half Cup, 30F”

Swimwear Review: Lands’ End DDD-cup Beach Living Sweetheart Bikini Top

Oh, summer. It has long been my least favorite season, not least of all because of the daunting prospect of wearing a bathing suit in public. But this year, I decided it was time to try out some bra-sized swimwear, the final frontier in my bra fitting journey.

A Comexim fit odyssey, Part II: Victoria 3HC, 65HH Review

A month has passed and my long-awaited Comexim order has finally arrived. You can read more about my ordering experience and communication with Anna from Comexim in Part I. Spoiler alert: the bra doesn’t fit. Part II of this fit odyssey will try to work out why it doesn’t work for me and where to go from here. In this review, I’ll discuss some of my expectations about the bra, including the alterations and modifications that I ordered, and what I received.

Bra Review: Freya Deco Charm Plunge, 30FF

I’ve been wanting to try the Freya Deco Charm Molded Plunge Bra since finding out that some Decos work for me. It’s one of the more prettified Decos with a wide lace trim along the tops of the cups and wings, a lustrous finish to the material, and a crystal gore decoration. I didn’t end up purchasing the Deco Charm, so this is going to be a brief review from a recent shopping trip where I was excited to find the 2016 spring season colorway: a shimmering magenta with bright orange accents.
