Bra Review: Cleo Marcie 30F in beautiful burgundy

Good morning!  Today will be a rather brief write up, as there’s not much difference between this bra and my previously reviewed yellow Marcie.  They are sister sizes, so very much the same dimensions overall.  The burgundy is a stunning color though, so let’s take a closer look at the aesthetics.  You can find Marcie here, here, here, and here.  She retails brand new at most places for around $55 USD. I picked up the burgundy color in a steal on eBay, and went with the 30 band because the yellow 28 band fits like a 26.  I can do

Bra Review: Ewa Michalak BM Mojito, 65F – my summer heartache.

Good afternoon loyal readers!  Today I’m reviewing one of Ewa Michalak’s newest bras, the Mojito.  The BM cut is an unpadded balconette with a stretch lace upper section, and is well known and loved among many larger busted ladies I’ve met in the industry.  I adore Mojito’s shades-of-teal summer vibe and was instantly enamored with the colorway when Ewa released it in both the BM and S (padded balconette) styles.  BM is different than the other unpadded balconette style, the SM, in that it has slightly deeper cups and the stretch lace section.  I have experience with both the SM

Bra Review: Ewa Michalak S Colette 60G + M Briefs

Good morning!  It’s a depressing, rainy day here so I thought I’d review my brand new EM Colette with its pastel summery floral feel.  I received this set for review from the wonderful Aisha at Zathiya – and if your size isn’t in stock she can likely order it for you!  She is also carrying a trial run of Avocado lingerie now so hurry over to her site if you’ve ever wanted to try them!  She’s based right here in Texas, USA.  I’m not a fan of florals, but Colette stole my heart with its somewhat abstract print and muted color

Bikini Review: Lilly and Lime Chevron Balconette, 28FF

Lilly and Lime is a brand new Australian swimwear company catering to full busts.  I’m excited about this for several reasons – full bust swimwear is still pretty lacking in size options and unique designs, and the Australian full bust options are very limited.  Shipping overseas to Australia is cost prohibitive, and Lilly and Lime is bursting onto the scene to save the Aussies looking for a local swim company!  Lilly and Lime has launched with an impressive size range of 28-38 D-HH.  Many full bust swim stops at G – GG, so offering up to HH off the bat is

Bra Review: Ewa Michalak SM Kusidelko, 65FF

Good morning!  The SM Kusidelko is a very sexy, unlined, nude and black illusion bra that I’ve had my eyes on for quite some time.  I was stalking a listing over at Bratabase for a couple of months, but couldn’t afford it and it finally sold from underneath my feet.  I was so sad.  Eventually I couldn’t help myself anymore and even though it’s a discontinued style, I asked Ewa if she could still make the bra for me in a 65FF.  They had enough fabric around and obliged, so I consider myself pretty lucky to have this baby. SM is

Bra Review: Curvy Kate Jewel 28FF

Switching gears today to my latest unlined acquisition.  I’m a sucker for purple and have long thought this bra was very beautiful, but Curvy Kate and I don’t always get along, shapewise.  Their bras in the past have been quite wide and shallow.  But Jewel is a somewhat newer style for them, and after reading enough reviews and checking measurements on Bratabase I decided she might be worth a shot and Amazon had the last one in a size that may work for me.  So, what’s a girl to do? Try it, of course!!  Ok, so I have my Bardot in

Bra Review: Cleo Lily 28FF, Parrot print

Today we’re going to take a brief look at one of my favorite bras to date, the parrot-printed colorway of Cleo’s Lily.  Much of what I previously wrote in my Aqua Lily 30FF review can be repeated here, so I won’t bore you with the same information.  But there’s a very important note I want to make here:  Lily was manufactured in 4 colorways – Aqua/Pink, Magenta/Orange, Parrot Print, and Swan Print.  The printed styles of Lily run bigger than the solid styles, by almost an entire cup volume.  I would say, from experience, Parrot and Swan run 3/4 cup bigger than

Bra Review: Freya Phoebe, 28FF

Look at me go, 2 reviews in one day.  And it’s another Freya for you!  Now we’re looking at the Freya Phoebe.  I’m assuming it is an older style for Freya and I could find very little information on it.  But I was on the hunt for a nude unlined bra, it was on eBay, so I took a shot.  You can still find a few Phoebes left for yourself! Not too bad!!  The color nude is a pretty close match to my skin, which I appreciate because most nude bras are too pale and pink-toned for me.  I went

Bra Review: Curvy Kate Bardot 30FF

Hello loyal readers!  I’ve been seriously slacking this past week – to say classwork is dominating my time is an understatement!  So I’m going to try to make up for it today and do 2 reviews. First up is the stunning offering from Curvy Kate’s SS2015 (I think) line named Bardot.  She’s a gorgeous sheer black and purple number and for AW2015 is coming out in black and red.  Bardot is simply sexy, no other way to put it.  Bardot was a huge hit for Curvy Kate and can still be found on Figleaves in both the violet and cranberry colorways.
