Mini Bra Review: Avocado “Mirabelle” in 70H

8 Mar

When it comes to Avocado, I actually rarely know what their team has in store for me. The first time I got a parcel from them, it was like a blind date: no idea who you are going to meet and if you are even going to like him. The surprise has always been a good one though and this time when Paulina sent me an email that a girl named Mirabelle was on her way to me, I was already at ease. How bad could it be? And it could not, I must tell you. I have already done a couple review’s on Avocado’s A-cut so this will be a mini review instead of a full one. Let’s see what post man Pat delivered me the other day…

The Design: The Avocado A-cut is what I call a plunge balconette – a style that dips in at the gore a bit but doesn’t go all the way down to be a true plunge. The cups are made of three parts which is a rather conventional bra cut and a favourite of many women with full-bust as it offers a decent shape (when done well) and good support. I have had the chance to try this style with Avocado’s Jewel and Caprice styles so click for the links if you want to learn more! The shape is overall a very good one for a three-piece cup construction as it is lifted and supported with the right proportions. The shape is quite natural so nothing too pointy nor super round!

The style of Mirabelle is absolutely adorable and sophisticated at the same time; I am completely in love with the Charcoal background and the hot pink accents (perfect to combine to my new Barry M lipstick!). Black and pink are a very traditional pairing but I loved that Avocado mixed it up a bit and went for charcoal instead – this gives the set a modern fresh touch to it. The cups are almost sheer with the exception of double lining at the bottom of the cup. The cups remain quite see-through even with the lining so be prepared for that! The overall aesthetics of the bra is very young and speaking to the “middle-market” woman who is tired of too cutesy prints but still wants something pretty in her bradrobe.

Fit & Comfort: I have noticed that the Avocado A-cut isn’t probably my best match from the brand’s selection of cuts – the K-shape is still my absolute favourite and I am actually waiting to get a chance to try their H-cut which is a more true balconette and might fit my boobs a bit better than this plunge balconette hybrid. Plunge shapes, even subtle ones, tend to cut into my upper fullness which is not obvious from the pictures but can occur during a day of wear. The cut is very flattering through clothes though and it minimizes the bust nicely (a feature I need now and then to get my clothes fit a bit better!). I am also contemplating on choosing a bigger size with the A-cut next time, to see if it’s just the shape that’s not the best for me or if the fit has something to do with too-small cups. We’ll see!

As usual, the A-cut is a sturdy little number and I love how comfortable it is after a little bit of breaking in. The 70 band feels snug as ever and the three hooks and eyes keep me supported for a long time and multiple wears. The wires are spot-on as well – great length and width for me to feel comfy all day long.

If you would fancy getting yourself the Mirabelle, do check out the Avocado online store. The bra retails for 72,52€ but if you are a returning Avocado customer, you get automatically 10% off. The shipping rates are pretty good to US as well – only 12€! What do you think? Would you have room for Mirabelle in your bradrobe? Let me know in the comments! xx

Suomeksi: Sain pari viikkoa sitten Avocadolta sähköpostin, jossa ilmoitettiin uuden paketin olevan jo matkalla minulle. Usein pääsen valitsemaan itse haluamani setin tehdessäni yhteistyötä brändien kanssa mutta Avocadon linja on aina ollut lähettää bloggaajille yllätyksiä – sinänsä hauskaa vaihtelua! Ikinä en kuitenkaan ole joutunut paketin sisältöön pettymään, päin vastoin. Brändi tarjoaakin ihania malleja moneen makuun – on pitsiä, perus nude-värisiä liivejä, kirjailuja ja upeita väriyhdistelmiä. 

Tällä kertaa sain testiin Avocadon Mirabelle-liivin, minulle jo tutussa A-mallissa. A-malli on hieman keskeltä alaspäin sukeltava liviimalli, joka on kuitenkin oikein sopiva jokapäiväiseen käyttöön ja tukee hyvin myös isompia rintoja. Kupit muodostuvat kolmesta palasesta yhden vaaka- ja pystysauman avulla, joka muodostaa hyvin perinteisen kolmipalaisen liivimallin. Kuppien muoto on melko luonnollinen: ei hirvittävän terävä muttei myöskään perinteiseen puolalaiseen tapaan yltiö-pyöreä!

Mirabelle on nyt aivan uusi versio A-mallista ja ainakin meikätyttöön tämä tyyli iskee ihan kympillä – pohjan hiilenharmaa sävy sopii loistavasti yhteen kauniin kirkkaan pinkin kanssa ja kirjailutkin ovat ihanan hienostuneita. Varmasti suosittu tyyli esim. niiden naisten parissa, joille perinteisen englantilaiset printit ja värit ovat vähän liikaa mutta haluavat kuitenkin jotain nuorekasta ja sievää alusvaatteiltaan. Kokotaulukkoa kannattaa kuitenkin vilkaista ennen ostopäätöstä – Avocadolla kun on ihan omanlaisensa käytössä! 

Mikäli oma Mirabelle kiinnostaa, voi sellaisen tilata Avocadon omasta nettikaupasta. Liivi kustantaa 72,52€ ja postikulut Suomeen ovat kymmenisen euroa. Vaikka hinta voi ensin kirpaista, voin sanoa, että Avocadon liivit on tehty todella laadukkaista materiaaleista ja ne todella kestävät hyvin käyttöä – ensimmäiset Avocadoni ovat viime keväältä ja edelleen tukevat löysimmissä hakasissa!

    So helpful to read your review in conjunction with Science & Silicone’s!

      Thank you! I loved her review as well and it’s always interesting to see the comparison of a bra on natural and augmented breasts 🙂

        Thanks! Nice to see this bra in a different size than my own :). It looks lovely on you.
