Hi there gals, and happy weekend! I hope you have had a great one so far. 🙂 My past week has been amazing, I have loved to answer your comments which are more than welcome and I have done so many fun things including a job interview at H&M and discussing blog co-operation with a Finnish lingerie webstore Lumingerie. The job interview went well and tomorrow’s the third part of the interview which I’m looking forward to so much after a couple of weeks just studying at university. I resigned myself three weeks ago so it’d be awesome to get back to work asap. Anyway! I had a really nice and lovely chat via e-mail with Lumingerie’s Mervi who kindly send me a couple of bras of my own choice to review for you guys. The bras came in just one day after ordering which was really helpful since I’ve been wearing them to get a real feel of them both for proper reviews.
The two bras I got were ones that I had been eager to try on for a long time. The first was Freya’s cult bra Deco (Honey) and the other was praised and beloved Panache’s Jasmine. I actually had a bit of prejudice towards Deco since I know it’s not for all types of breasts and mine are pretty tricky with really deep necklines. After failing with Curvy Kate’s Elegance (which I can review for you later) I thought the Deco would be a hopeless case. Until I got it on.
The cleavage! The lift! The shape! I was struck by the fact that for once in my life I had a bra that made me look like Kim Kardashian. And I NEVER have cleavage! I mean, like ever. My boobs have always been more on the sides of my torso than in the front of it and that is why most my bras have left them looking a bit like east-west, if you know what I mean? Curvy Kate’s soft cups which are my everyday go-to bras have always given me very natural look, so as some of my fellow bloggers would say: in those bras they look like my boobs but better. Others like Smoothie and Marcie which are my absolute favourites make my breasts look really good but still they lack the appearance of great cleavage which I’d prefer especially with lower cut dresses on nights out. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t want my boobs to be stared at, for godsakes I have a boyfriend, but for my confidence cleavage is always a plus.
When I was opting for the size I’d like to try on I went for 28G since my boobs have grown a bit during the past two months or so (yes, they do that still after my 20’s..). There are some rumors that Decos run big in cup but for me going for the G’s was the right move. This means I’m currently in the 30FF/28G size range. For some gals with lower fullness the Deco can indeed be a tough one to find the right fit ad therefore some of you might consider going down a cup size. In my case I found the bra quite true to size, though a bit different than the unpadded styles of Freya which I have in 28FF. The 28 band was nice and firm but at first it was so tight is was a bit uncomfortable to wear for several hours. To me this bra needs a bit longer break-in period.
I think this bra’s assets are its oomph-affect and shape. It is wearable almost under everything because of its smooth appearance and that is what makes it an everyday bra. However some of you might find it a bit more suitable for nights out since it’s definitely not a bra too modest because of the cleavage it gives you. For me this is a great asset since I don’t like the idea of my bra showing too much under my clothes and the low center gore makes you at ease with cleavage-y dresses. I don’t mind a peek here and there but sometimes you just want to look classy, especially with dresses and shirts that have low necklines. If I’d have to say something bad about Deco it would probably just be the mild skin irritation it gives me near the armpits. However, this is mostly because of my skin and it happens almost always when wearing bra that comes that high up. Otherwise Deco Honey is looks- and fitwise a great bra.
This bra was sent me by Lumingerie for review purposes. However this does not affect on my opinion on the bra and my reviews will always be honest and true.
Moikka moi sinne! Mulla on ollut ihan mieletön viikko, kiitos ihanien kavereiden, mukavan työhaastattelun ja tietenkin uusien rintsikoiden. 🙂 Lumingerie -verkkokaupan Mervi laittoi mulle tulemaan parit itselleni mieluisat liivit, jotka saapuivatkin jo heti seuraavana päivänä tilauksen lähettämisestä. Huippua, että myös Suomessa on alusvaateverkkokauppoja, sillä itseäni ainakin ärsyttää lähetellä britteihin aina takaisin ostoksia ja vekslata niiden postimaksujen ja lähetysaikojen kanssa. Lumingerien valikoimasta valitsin jo kulttiklassikoiksi muodostuneet Freyan Decon ja Panache Superbran Jasminen. Molempia olen päässyt käyttämään jo ja pakko kyllä sanoa, että ovat aivan ihania vaikkakin kovin erilaisia.
Decosta valitsinkin sitten koon 60G, sillä rintavarustukseni päätti taas kasvaa vielä teinivuosieni jälkeenkin. Mahtavaa. No, joka tapauksessa kokoveikkaus osui oikeaan ja kuuskymppinen ympärys on jo alkanut tuntua suhteellisen mukavalta muutaman käyttökerran jälkeen. Teinkin teille pienen videon, jossa arvostelen liivit perusteellisemmin.
Tämä tuote on lähetetty Lumingeriestä arvostelutarkoitukseen. Tämä ei kuitenkaan vaikuta mielipiteeseeni tuoteesta vaan arvostelen jokaisen tuotteen rehellisesti lukijoitani kunnioittaen.
