Canadian Goodies – Review Of Blush Lingerie “Paramour” High-Waisted Brief

14 Oct

First of all, I am hyperventilating here because I have my final job interview for being a bra fitter for a very well-known brand (and I REALLY want the job). So please excuse me if this review turns out odd, I am not myself at the moment. Okay, moving on…

A few weeks ago I saw this amazing set by Blush Lingerie and of course, got super excited and tweeted them that I would literally die if I couldn’t get my hands on it (this happens now and then). What I wasn’t expecting was that the lovely people at Blush contacted me and asked if I wanted to review the very same set called “Paramour”. Unfortunately, I do not fit into their bra size range which only goes up to DD with this particular range but I was very happy to be sent the lovely retro suspender brief in the lovely Black/Obsidian colourway. Here’s how it looks and fits…

I want to say something before I tell you about the briefs. It took me a whole lot of courage to post pics of myself in my panties so I hope you are gentle on me. I have scars and wounds around my body because of my eczema and I am not perfectly slim, I know that (also, I just noticed I have super weird ribs poking out under my bra band). Why I wanted to post these pictures was because I want to show how lingerie looks on someone my size and hopefully some of you can relate to my body type. If you are about to comment on this post, which I appreciate, leave my body out of the comments unless you have something nice to say. I am very touchy about this subject because of my eating disorder problems and will ask you to respect that. #diversityinlingerie

The brief looks as stunning in nature as in the pictures though the mint-green undertone looks much more accentuated in natural light. I am so glad Blush Lingerie has decided to pair the mint shade with black as it makes the bottoms approachable to us fuller-busted ladies as well and we can match it to any basic black bra we own. The design of the panties is so adorable and sexy at the same time and I love the high rise that looks pretty good on me too, even though I don’t have the best proportions for high-waisted stuff. The brief comes up to my belly button but doesn’t cover it so I would say the panties are designed for someone with rather regular proportions and height.

I went for the size Small with the panties even though my waist measurement belongs to the M category. The thing is, my waist and hips don’t have a dramatic difference between them so each time I go for a certain size, I need to pick whether the panties are a bit snug on my waist or a little too loose on my butt. I usually go for the snugger waist as I do like a nipped-in look with everything high-waisted.

The quality of the panties seems great to me and the detachable suspenders are made of a lovely velvet-y material, creating a more luxe look to the style. The materials are stretchy enough to feel comfortable and the gusset feels a good width to me. Also the butt section has enough room for my booty and looks quite flattering even though I don’t have much curves on my backside. All in all, the Paramour high-waisted knickers seems like a very good quality for their 38 CAD (=27 €) price tag! Shipping to Europe can be costly but eg. to USA it’s only $5.

How do you like the panties? Do you love or hate high-waisted bottoms? Let me know in the comments! xx

The Best of Esty Lingerie

19 Oct

Esty Lingerie in an online boutique specializing in hand-made luxury lingerie by independent designers all around the world. Recently I’ve been eyeing their stuff more than I should and would like to share with you what I like the most on their site.

First what caught my eye were these bra choker straps which Undercover Lingerista reviewed on her blog a while ago. The skull detail is one of favourite choker strap designs and they make me sigh out of pure desire. They also come in various colours, here presented the black and pink versions. What I especially love about the pink version is that it supports breast cancer work by donating 5 £ off the purchase to Breakthrough Breast Cancer when you buy it this October! Very tempted to snatch one up…

My other favourite on the site are these simple yet extremely delicious “Mistress Collection” side-tie knickers. They come in all the colours in the world and are made of silk. I also love how these are photographed on the site, I have never been this well lured to buy a pair of panties! They cost £27,50 so not bad for a piece made of silk.

What I first saw when I got to know Esty were their beautiful eye-masks. These eye-masks are made of silk and have a VERY luxurious feel to them with all the bows and trims. I love how great a gift these make, since there is no issues with sizing! In Finland the summers are very bright during the nighttime which is why I recommend to get one if the light bothers you. So my future boyfriend, be prepared for Christmas. I want one. The one above is one of my fave colourways and costs £66.

Esty also offers a range of garters, bridal lingerie, corsets, bra sets and nightwear so be sure to check them out too! They also have a blog of their own including a post co-starring me! (Images courtesy of Esty Lingerie)

Next I will hopefully review Parfait’s Danielle for you! I’ve been having trouble with my internet so I think I need to exchange it to a faster one before I can operate. Til then, have a great weekend! As we Finns say: brains and pants on 😉
