Image source: pichost.me Lingerie gifts have gone hand in hand with Valentine’s Day for as long as I can remember, as couples (and singletons for that matter!) indulge in the theatre of a ‘sexy’ lingerie set. Whereas I’m all for adopting this ‘on the daily’ if that’s your bag, but I do still, admittedly, still love looking around at the collections that are released in the lead up to this time of year as companies target the ‘gifting’ season. of Christmas and V-day. I decided to indulge myself and put some of my top picks in a blog post, as my bank account is bare and I’m unable to indulge in any other way. It’s like the blogger’s equivalent of ‘bagging‘. So what would I like to receive on the 14th of February this year?
Say hello to my ‘going out’ bra. This is my go-to LBD bra, and I’m sure you can see why. It’s not often I get a good cleavage in anything, (and I mean ‘good’ cleavage where the bra still actually fits and is comfortable, with no double, triple or quadruple boob in sight!) so when I first tried on my Ewa Michalak S Szykuś, I knew we were going to be friends.
I have to admit, this was one of the most fun blog posts I’ve written in a long time. It basically consisted of online shopping, but without the budget or guilt. Best thing ever! I’ve simply put together the top 10 bras that I would pick if I were to ask for lingerie for Christmas. You may not agree with my choices, but it may give you some ideas of what to ask Santa for, or even what to pick up for your significant other.
I was very excited to try lingerie brand Ewa Michalak after hearing great things on forums and on the Thin and Curvy blog, as I’m always excited to try new brands which offer a 28 band (and even below in the case of Ewa Michalak!) I ordered a fair few bras back in June, all in a 65F as Ewa’s bras are all sold in ‘European sizes’. Some people have been confused about which size to buy and I must admit I was one of them.
Onyx, 65F ‘Black padded halfcup bra. Push up pads and 3 pairs of removable shoulder straps.’ 129.00zł This bra was one of my favourites from my Ewa Michalak haul but was also the one which I felt needed the most to be a band size down. I ordered 65F in all the bras I purchased from them as this is the smallest back size available which can still be returned. In the ‘Onyx’ I feel like I definitely need a 60FF as the back band is much stretchier and looser than any of the other styles I tried. I will be returning this bra in exchange for a 60FF, however you can still see from the images of the 65F that this bra is simply stunning.
Koralik, 65F ‘Padded halfcup bra.’ 109.00zł This bra is absolutely stunning and I love the colour of it. Fits wonderfully around the cups and back, my only gripe with it is the minuscule straps which weren’t painful or cutting but were certainly a bit irritating. Even though the straps should only take about 10% of the breast weight, I still feel like I need the straps to be a bit bigger to hold up the girls comfortably.
Cieluś, 65F ‘Padded plunge bra in nude.’ 119.00zł This one I picked out as it looked like the perfect basic nude plunge bra. The detail along the upper part of the cup adds a little bit of something to what would otherwise be a fairly plain bra, however any girl knows the place for the perfect nude plunge (think t-shirts, the white work shirt, sheer tops, etc.) This bra seems like the plunge I have been waiting for.
