Ever since Freya’s Spring/Summer range was released for preview on Lingerie Buyer’s website what seems like forever ago, I have had my eye on the Loretta. A bra which combines beautiful fit and shape, practicality and support seamlessly with beautiful design – something I’ve come to expect from Freya. It is right up my street with stunning paisley print and sheer lace panels, delicate pale pastel colours and embroidery, this has to be my favourite of Freya’s Spring/Summer 2011 collection.
Side view: the prettiest print of all time?
The great thing about the Loretta is the placement of the sheer panels – I found no nip was showing which is always a plus. The straps are a beige which makes this bra a great alternative for those of you who don’t want to wear a plain ‘nude’ bra – why hide away in the spring?
Size wise, I’ve found my ‘usual’ 28FF to be the perfect fit (if not a little firm in the band – I often wear mine with a bra extender and wish for a 30F!) and the bra washes and wears beautifully. I have the shorts, thong and brief version of the bottoms of this set – (note: obsession!) And I’ve found myself wearing it pretty much constantly since it arrived from the wonderful online Freya retailer Lembrassa.

Perfect under summer dresses, a flirty nod towards the pastel colours which have been bang on trend for Spring/Summer combined with the classic Freya fit. What’s not to love?
