Bra Review: Freya Wildfire Plunge, 30DD

If you follow my posts, then you know by now that I have a tendency to buy some fabulous-looking bras for the prettiness alone. I have rarely had success with Freya’s plunge balconies, but I couldn’t resist the Wildfire plunge. Let’s talk about why. Continue reading “Bra Review: Freya Wildfire Plunge, 30DD”

Bra Review: Comexim Victoria Plunge 60H standard & 60HH reduced cup comparison

Bra Review: Comexim Elena Plunge, 28G (60HH)

A lot of my reviews end up focusing on bras that don’t quite fit, which is unsurprising because 1) hardly anything ever fits me and 2) as soon as I find a bra that fits great, my size seems to change and I have to start all over again. Finding that perfect fit is simply too elusive! But today I’d like to review a bra that actually fit: my first Comexim plunge bra, the surprising Elena.

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.

My first Comexim order: A fit odyssey, Part I

Well, I did it. I finally ordered my first Comexim bra! I wasn’t planning on blogging anything about Comexim until my order arrives (hopefully in about 3-4 weeks). I definitely don’t want to “jinx” it. Since it has taken me a long, long time to place my order, I thought it would be helpful for myself and for others if I record the various stages of my Comexim journey. It has taken quite a few hurdles for me to get as far as placing an order: figuring out the styles, guesstimating my size, opting for alterations, worrying about the language barrier, and committing to spend $40 and over a month waiting for a bra that could easily not fit. I see questions about these same issues popping up all the time, and it’s no small feat trying to figure it out alone. Here’s how it has gone for me so far.
