Lingerie Review: Avocado “Jewel” Bra in 70H

19 Jan

I started off the year with a proper Avocado extravaganza by introducing you to their basic range Essentia. I was so happy with the range and when Avocado told me that they were sending me another style to try you must guess I was over the moon. When Essentia was a simple style for everyday wear, the Jewel in A-cut was a whole another story. Here’s how I liked this decorative little number…

The Design: After trying out something rather simplistic I was pretty smitten to get testing something really exquisitely designed and unique. Though the colouring may feel a bit autumnal to some, I find it rather lovely combo for spring as well. I am not a huge fan or brown but as the hue turned out to be a lovely dark caramel with red accents, I was actually rather pleased with the result. The styling is very European with stunning large embroidery and I am glad to see it done by the Polish brands as well as I’m used to seeing such styles with French lingerie in particular.

The shape is same as with my A-cut Caprice bra (click for the review!) so rather rounded yet natural. The breasts hang on a rather natural level so you won’t get that pushed up look with this bra! For me, this makes the bra a great option for everyday wear even though the design looks more night-appropriate. The bra cups are constructed of three parts with one vertical and one horizontal seam and the straps are attached to the top panel of the cups. The coverage is medium level and I would say it suits well under most regular t-shirts, even with a plunging neckline.

The Fit: I have always felt that Avocado makes great options for every breast shape and I still think that to be pretty accurate. I am lucky enough to suit both their A- and K-cuts pretty well so again, I have no real complaints about the fit. I went for the size 70H with the Jewel as well and have been pretty happy with it, even though the cut seems a bit shallower near the centre core. If you are very full all over then do take that into consideration! The cup edge feels a tad tight across my larger breast but doesn’t cut in so it’s not a real downside for me. However, the cup construction makes my boobs look a bit smaller than they actually are so I actually dig the style the most for that feature! It’s a true heaven on earth as you try to cram your tits into a dress that’s suitable for a 36″ bust when your actually 41″ (and I do that a lot).

The band is lovely and snug for a 70 and even though I am 65 (UK 30) with most brands, the Avocado 70 fits me very well. The wires are again pretty much perfect and the cups seem to have enough depth to them even though I do get a teeny tiny bit of wrinkling at the bottom.

Comfort: As the wire width and length is spot-on for me, the whole bra seems to be a very comfortable piece to wear throughout the day. I can easily wear the bra at home too, just lounging around, without feeling that I have something super restrictive on. The band features three hooks and eyes so it feels supportive and comfy even after loosening up a bit. The straps are half-adjustable so this may be something that you want to take into consideration if you are very tall or petite.

Avocado makes all their lingerie Poland with a love to details and quality, so I suggest you take a good look at their English website, here (click!). The prices are rather similar to other European luxury brands but do guarantee a good quality bra and a superb fit, alongside the massive size range Avocado offers (EU 60-95 C-L). They have a sizing system of their own so do check out the size chart on their website before ordering!

The lovely team at Avocado has also asked me to deliver an important message to you. They will be raising their prices a bit very soon for wholesale related reasons but they would like to offer a little discount to their returning customers. If you are a returning customer you will get a 10% off your future orders so basically the prices will stay pretty much the same 😉 The Jewel bra will still cost 72,25€ for a while so snatch it up real quick if you are new to Avocado!

What do you think of the bra? Do you like the colours for spring or do they suit autumn better? Let me know your thoughts in the comment box!

Suomeksi: Moikka kaikille! Tänään mulla olisi arvostelussa vähän koristeellisempi Avocadon rintaliivimalli nimeltä Jewel. Avocado on yksi lempparimerkeistäni laadun ja mukavuuden puolesta, ja tässä tyylissä riittää lisäksi vielä ihasteltavaa kriittisemmällekin silmälle. Vaikka karamellin ruskea ja punaisen eri sävyt tuntuivat aluksi melko syksyisiltä, on stailaus kuitenkin todella sievä myös kevättä ajatellen. Erityisen kauniilta värit saattavatkin näyttää juuri hieman ruskettuneella iholla!

Tästä A-mallista minulla on aikaisemmin ollut testissä merkin Caprice-liivit (linkki arvosteluun!), jotka ovat edelleen tuolla laatikossa hyvänä vaatekaapin peruspilarina. A-malli on hieman plungen ja balconeten välimaastoa muistuttava hybridi, jossa olkaimet kiinnittyvät rintsikoiden kuppien yläpaneeliin. Peittävyydeltään rintsikat ovat keskiluokkaa eli sopivat hyvin esim. ihan perus t-paidan alle.

Malliltaan ja istuvuudeltaan Jewel on minulle melko lähellä täydellistä, sillä sen ympärys on napakka ja kupit melko lailla oikeaa kokoa. Liivien keskiosan läheisyydessä ei ole ehkä niin paljon tilaa kuin sietäisi, mutta tuplatissi loistaa onneksi edelleen vain poissaolollaan. Kooksi valitsin tässä mallissa oman perinteisin Avocado-kokoni eli 70H, joka piti kutinsa jälleen kerran (kokotaulukkoa kannattaa kuitenkin vilkaista, sillä mitoitus on aika lailla omaa luokkaansa). Kaarituetkin olivat todella soppelin mittaiset ja levyiset, joten kokonaisuudessaan ei valittamista!

Jos mielit kokeilla Avocadoa, vielä lopuksi pari vinkkiä tilaamiseen. Avocadon hinnat nousevat aivan lähitulevaisuudessa, joten tämäkin kaunokainen kannattaa ostaa heti pois kuleksimasta! Jos kuitenkin olet jo vanha asiakas, ei huolta. Avocado on luvannut palaaville asiakkaille 10% alennuksen myös myöhemmistä tilauksista, joten jälleen kerran kanta-asiakkaat palkitaan 😉 Suomeen postikulut ovat n. 10€ luokkaa ja paketti saapuu yleensä perille noin viikossa.

Mitäpä mieltä sinä olet tästä ihanuudesta? Sopiiko väriyhdistelmä mielestäsi myös kevääseen? Jätähän alle kommenttia!

    At Shop Brafinette last week it was possible for me to try some Avocados. I think the brand is in same level as finest french lingerie. Bands are narrow, so I tried a 40 band with a D-Cup. I was impressed from Jewel and confirm with you. The fit is great and so I have now my first Avocado in my lingerie drawer.

    […] Die BHs der polnischen Firma Avocado sind außerhalb Polens bislang nur sehr schwer erhältlich, das ändert sich aber gerade, denn im Berliner Geschäft Brafinette treffen bald einige Modelle ein! Hier könnt ihr schon mal einen Eindruck der BHs erhalten, denn das Modell “Jewel” sitzt bei Bloggerin Sophie wirklich gut! Nur die Träger sehen sehr weit außen sitzend aus, was bei manchen Frauen wie mir z. B. vor den Armen unangenehm einschneiden kann. Sophie selbst hat damit allerdings keine Probleme. // Link […]
