It’s not very often that you see Lepel bra reviews. In fact, I don’t think there’s ever been one on Invest In Your Chest before and a quick Google search will reveal just how under-represented they are as a brand within the lingerie blogging world. So why not more Lepel coverage? Well, for me they’re a brand which don’t often put themselves out there. They don’t really shout about themselves too loudly and their designs often have a very safe look to them.
It’s not that often that I find a bra in my size that I find really sexy. I’m not actually that huge a fan of overly sexy lingerie and will rarely go out of my way to buy any, let alone wear any. I’m much more of a cute, pretty, glamourous, fun lingerie kind of girl (and not all at the same time). For this reason it’s pretty unusual for me to pick something up that’s both bright red and lacy, but when I saw Pour Moi’s Amour Longline in my local independent lingerie boutique, I couldn’t resist.
Boux Avenue and I have never really got along. It’s true, I’ve written previously about their questionable in-store fitting service and previous reviews have had low scores. In fact, whilst I’ve made a few recommendations to friends about trying their bras for size, I’ve near enough avoided entering a Boux Avenue store since my last blog post in 2012. It wasn’t until a recent trip to Bristol when I spotted a super-cute fluoro orange bikini caught my eye the week before my holiday that I popped in.
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.
The Panache Jasmine has been in my collection for quite some time now (hence why I’m showing off my beautiful oriental print version circa Autumn/Winter 2012!), but they re-release and re-release this style season after season, always in pretty prints and standout shades and it never fails to catch my attention.
Hello dear readers – you may be surprised to see that today’s post is a bra review, after what seems like forever since I posted my last one. Thankfully, it’s a good’un and one of the nicest bras I’ve seen from Freya Lingerie in quite a while – in the form of Freya Tropics. I roped in a pal to help me with this one as she has recently changed bra size and is somewhat of a Freya Deco junkie so I wanted to help her try something else.
When it comes to buying bras, or anything for that matter, I’m what can only be described as a ‘massive bargain hunter’. It’s extremely rare that I’ll buy anything full price, and my lingerie addiction rarely evades this philosophy. The good news is there are so so so many options for frugal frillies – so for those of you waiting on payday or your student loan, you needn’t wait to kit out your top drawer!
