Lingerie Review: Ava “Ines” in 70I

24 Apr

Ava is one of those brands, which I quite rarely review but every time I do, their bras pretty much fit me like a glove. Their availability is not as good as with some other Polish brands such as Kris Line or Ewa Michalak but I am fortunate to live in the same city where the Lumingerie lingerie online store is based – so I have access to many Polish brands that are carried nowhere else in Finland! I popped in at the Lumingerie storage to say hi to the lovely owners, and Mervi decided to put together a bag of goodies for me, the sweetheart she is. This particular set has been very much on demand, so if you see your size on the web store, grab it while you can (psst, they also offer free delivery within EU)!

The Design: The Ines is a non-padded balconette style which reminds me a lot of Panache and Cleo bras – in fact, it’s something that Panache and Cleo would create if they made a love child together. What I mean by this, is that the shape of the bra is beautifully rounded as with most Cleo signature balconettes but the construction is a bit more elaborate to offer a tiny bit more support, especially around outer breast area. The cut of the bra is called “Side Support Bra” at the website but it is still not too full-coverage which is something you would typically expect from a Panache bra.

The style of the Ines set is quite young and hip yet sexy – the leopard is still very much on trend and the black/raspberry colour combo keeps it sassy. The stretchier lace upper panel compliments the bra beautifully and brings together the four-piece cup construction.

The Fit: When buying Ava bras, you need to remember that their cups run on the bigger side. I would actually go as far as saying they run exactly one cup size big, as my usual European bra size is 70J and this bra fits me very well in 70I. The cups are still very spacious and could perhaps even endure some period size fluctuation. The band is firm in 70 and is rather something between UK 30 and 32 than a solid 32. To be frank, the Ava 70 band is a perfect fit for me: I am exactly between 30 and 32 with Panache and the Ava 32 (70) band is just snug enough to feel comfortable yet sturdy on my body.

The cups of the Ines are quite deep as you would expect from a Polish bra. However, the underwires are not particularly narrow, which is something you need to consider if you like your wires are narrow as eg with the likes of Ewa Michalak. I would say The Ava wires are quite close to Samanta and Ewa Bien wires, which is a rather good width for me personally.

Comfort: The way I see it, there are two ways to judge if a bra is comfortable enough for everyday wear: A) after the “breaking-in period” (the few times when you wear the bra for a first time and then wash it) it shouldn’t “feel” too much while wearing it, and B) it stays put when you are active. The Ines ticks both of the boxes, especially the latter! Don’t get me wrong – you will totally feel it when you wear it for the first few times and the centre gore especially tacks my sternum very firmly. However, the bra does “loosen up” a bit after a few wears and thus becomes more comfy over time. The sturdiness is still there though – this bra lifts heavy! It stays and feels supportive no matter what, which is a sign of a well-thought-out full-bust bra.

The Ines hooks at the back with three hooks and eyes in the bigger sizes and features fully adjustable straps which is always a great feature regarding comfort. This means the bra can be adjusted no matter the shape or the size of a person wearing it. It also comes quite high on my armpits but as the materials are not scratchy, I actually enjoy it as it means my breast tissues near the armpit area is fully encased.

The Ines bra comes with two different types of panties – regular short-style knickers and a thong. Obviously, I went for the shorts, as I like my panties to cover a bit more and feel comfy no matter what. My only issue with the knickers is that they are cut quite small – I thought I would be fine with size Medium as my size hasn’t changed for the bigger in many months but it appears, that Ava does run very small with their knickers. Sure, I can wear the Mediums but I wonder if the Large would have been a more flattering look. That thought in itself feels peculiar to me as I usually still wear Small-Medium with all other brands!

As mentioned in the beginning of the post, this set is flying off the shelves, so if you want to get your mittens on it, don’t wait! You can find the English website for Lumingerie here. The Ines bra (65-105 D-L) costs an affordable 39€ and the cute panties (S-XXXL) 19€.

Suomeksi: Heippa kaikille! Pitkästä aikaa laitan tulemaan myös suomennosta postaukseen, koska tämän postauksen tuotteet on sponssannut ihana kotimainen alusvaateverkkokauppa Lumingerie. Lumingerien varastohan sijaitsee täällä meikäneidin kotikaupungissa Oulussa, joten välillä piipahdan siellä ihan vain kahvittelemassa ja ihailemassa sesongin uutuksia. Tälläkään kertaa en lähtenyt kotiin tyhjin käsiin, vaan mukaan tarttui Avan ihanan pinkki leopardi-kuosinen “Ines” setti, jonka Lumingerie lahjoitti minulle arvostelua varten. 

Ava onkin minulle jo tuttu niiltä ajoilta, kun olin viimeksi kesätöissä Lumingeriella ja muistelin heidän mitoituksensa olevan hieman reilumpaa kuppien suhteen. Muistini ei pettänyt minua vaan niinpä koon 70J sijasta mukaan lähtikin 70I, joka vastaa brittien koissa n. 32GG:tä. Puolalaiset merkit ovatkin tunnettuja hieman syvemmistä kupeistaan mutta myös tiukemmista ympäryksistään, joten vaikka moni brittimerkki istuu minulle myös koossa 30H (65H), niin tämä kaunokainen on aivan riittävän tukeva jo 70-ympäryksessä. Ympärysnauha on myös ihanan leveä, joten se tukee hyvin aivan arkikäytössä.

Alushousuja tähän settiin löytyy kahta mallia: stringiä ja tavallista boy short-mallia. Meikäläisen mantra on “Mitä mummompi, sen parempi”, mitä alkkareihin tulee, joten tiedätte varmaan kummat mulla lähti matkaan. Näissä kannattaa myös kiinnittää huomiota kokolappuun: puolalaisten pikkarikoot on aikas niukkoja, joten suosittelen ottamaan ainakin koon isommat tämän merkin kohdalla. Mun kooksi valikoitui M, mutta veikkaan että L:kään ei olisi ollut hassumpi. 

Tätä settiä ei ole enää montaa jäljellä, joten jos hyvinistuva, kaunis ja vieläpä edullinen alusvaatesetti kiinnostaa, nyt kannattaa katsoa vieläkö omaa kokoasi olisi jäljellä. Rintsikat löydät (koot 65-105 D-L) täältä ja alushousut (S-XXXL) puolestaan täältä. Lumingeriella postikulut, vaihdot ja palautukset on ilmaisia, joten jos merkki ei ole vielä tuttu, voi liivejä tilata vaikka parissa eri koossa ja laittaa vääränkokoiset takaisin!

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…

DSC_0076  DSC_0107
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.

DSC_0095 DSC_0099DSC_0077
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.

DSC_0093DSC_0091
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!

Bradrobe Essentials for 2015 – Review of Avocado “Essentia” in 70H

2 Jan

Have you met Avocado yet? Well, I reviewed their “Annick in Love” and “Caprice” bras a while ago and fell in love with their luxurious lingerie instantly. The aesthetics are great for someone looking for sophisticated elegance combined to great materials and superior construction. The new Essentia range is a simple yet pretty style that offers two basic colours; black, and beige. The people at Avocado were so kind to send me not one but two Essentias to try out – just the basic colours I always need in my bradrobe. Here’s how I liked my gorgeous essentials…

DSC_0059DSC_0053
The Design: The pictures on the Avocado website don’t do justice for the looks of Essentia as the materials are truly gorgeous and there is actually a lovely little pattern to the mesh-kind-of overlay of the bra. I opted the Essentia in the K-shape since I had figured it would be the best Avocado shape for me, based on my Annick in Love trial in the past. The shape is great for my boobs and the bra gives me a great deal of uplift. I would say Avocado is the master of great construction when it comes to bras and I never see them do any weird shapes that would make my boobs look sad and droopy – this however is something I always expect from Polish brands as they do have a long history of making bras.

DSC_0064

The Fit: I was weighing on whether I should go for my regular 70H with Avocado or go up a cup size to a 70J. Luckily, I followed their size chart and decided I was still more an H-cup with them as the J would require a 106 cm bust and mine is 103-104 at the moment. The Essentia is a great fit like it’s counterpart Annick in Love and I adore how well it suits its purpose as an everyday essential.

The band is really firm at first so don’t chicken out if you get a bit of back bulge! Mine disappeared in a few days as the band loosened up. This needs to be taken into consideration when choosing the band size though: when you measure according to the website you extract 5 cm from your underbust measurement when measuring in cm’s. If you fall between band sizes, I would suggest you take the smaller one. I am 75 under my bust and that gives me an accurate band size of 70 so I am wearing the exact right size at the moment.

The cups are deep and the wires narrow-ish but not to the extent that they would hurt me. I have had trouble with some Polish brands making a bit too narrow wires for my breast root leading to pinching and aching after a few hours of wear. Even though the K-shape is said to be one of the narrowest shapes of Avocado, it’s still reasonable for me (for reference, I need medium to narrow width wires). It seems I would need a little more depth to the cups at the bottom but as I have stated many times before, this happens to me a lot and does not bother me unless it’s super obvious.

DSC_0071 DSC_0084
Btw, the hue of beige is a bit darker than in the pics so take that into account 😉

Comfort: Even though Essentia does not feature my favourite material cotton, it is made of high-quality materials that prevent the bra from irritating my sensitive skin. The bra is double-lined both at the top and bottom to give me extra support but also comfort: the upper layer of mesh could be too scratchy on itself so I do like the softer materials on the inside.

The band of Essentia is very comfortable even though it is quite firm before breaking the bra in. The band features three hooks and eyes which is always a plus for me as a large bust like mine needs all that extra support. The style has clearly been made to please all your everyday preferences as it has been crafted to be as simple and as comfortable as it can be. The straps are fully-adjustable but take note that they are quite short to begin with. So some great news for you petite girls 😉

All in all I am in love with my two new bradrobe staples and they have already got a ton of wear as they go well under all my clothes. If you fancy an Essentia of your own, the Avocado website offers international delivery. The bra sets you back at 49,79 € which is a rather good price for a well-fitting piece of luxury lingerie. The size range is generous: you can find the bra in EU sizes 60-95 C-K and in multiple different shapes. Remember to check the size chart as the brand has a rather unique way of sizing!

I hope you enjoyed the review and I also wish you the best year of 2015! Thank you for everyone who took part in my year of blogging once again and I welcome any new readers that want to come along this year. Also a big thank you to all my lovely sponsors who have worked with me regarding my reviews!

Suomeksi: Moikka kaikille ja hyvää uutta vuotta! Kuten viime postauksessa mainitsin, mun joulu lähti käyntiin kasallisella uusia rintsikoita, joiden arvostelemisella onkin mukava aloittaa tämä uusi vuosi. Tällä kertaa vuorossa on puolalainen laatumerkki Avocado ja heidän uutusmallistonsa Essentia. Avocado lähetti ystävällisesti minulle Essentia-liivejä kaksin kappalein, joten tässäpä olisi teille pieni arvostelu niistä!

Avocado on minulle jo ennestään tuttu merkki, joten koon ja mallin valitseminen tuntui melko helpolta. Vaikka kokotaulukon mukaan kuuluisin johonkin 70H ja J väliin, päätin luottaa vielä 70H:hon tällä kertaa. Onneksi tein näin, sillä koko oli jälleen kerran todella hyvä! Avocadon ympärykset ovat aikalailla linjassa muiden puolalaisten merkkien kanssa, joten 70 on minulle oikein passeli ympärys. Kuppikoiden kanssa saa kuitenkin olla tarkkana, sillä ne eivät noudata ihan perinteistä eurooppalaista mitoitusta.

Avocadon rintsikoissa ympärys voi tuntua aluksi melko tiukalta, mutta sitä ei kuitenkaan kannata säikähtää: ympärys kun venähtää melko nopeasti löyhempiin mittoihin, jolloin ylimääräiset selkämakkaratkin tasoittuvat sopivasti. Kupit ovat minulle tässä mallissa oikein sopivat, vaikka tilaa voisi kuppien alaosassa olla hieman lisää kuvista päätellen. Valitsinkin Essentia K-mallisena, joka on Avocadon malleista syvin kupeiltaan ja matalin peittävyydeltään. Muita malleja merkiltä löytyy A, H ja F, joihin voi tutustua heidän nettisivuillaan.

Kokonaisuudessaan Essentia tuntuu oikein hyvältä mallilta, joka sopii varmasti myös jokaisen simppeliyttä rakastavan suomalaisnaisen alusvaatelaatikkoon. Liivit maksavat vajaan 50 € ja Suomeen postikuluja kertyy n. 10 €, joten laatuliiveistä tuo summa ei ole todellakaan paha! Linkit nettisivuille löydät tuolta englanninkielisestä tekstiosuudesta 😉

Lopuksi haluaisin kiittää kaikkia lukijoita edeltävästä vuodesta ja toivon, että moni teistä innostuu lukemaan blogiani myös tänä vuonna! Muistakaapa myös seurailla blogiani noitten “Follow”-painikkeiden kautta, niin saatte ensimmäisenä tietoonne esim. helmikuussa järjestettävät synttäriarvonnat 😉 Kiitos myös kaikille yhteistyökumppaneille, ilman teitä blogiani olisi todella vaikeaa pyörittää. Jos löysit blogini kuitenkin vasta nyt – tervetuloa! Toivotan sinut tervetulleeksi mukaan alusvaatteiden täyteiseen vuoteen 2015.

Redhead in Pale Pink – Review of Freya “Ooh La La” in 30GG

28 Dec

Hi world, I haven’t forgotten you! I just had a fantastic Christmas holiday with my family so I put aside my blog and the lingerie world for a moment, though I did receive five (!) new bras before the holidays. Today I will be introducing a set by a brand I have not bought or reviewed in a while, that is the mighty Freya. I was approached by the wonderful online boutique Clara Olivia and asked if I wanted to review something courtesy of them. I was so delighted of the chance and opted for something I had not tried in a while. The set reviewed today is the lovely “Ooh La La” which is one of the best sets Freya has released in a while. I have not worn unpadded Freya bras since my beloved 28FF Arabella so I figured it was time to give them another try…

DSC_0028 DSC_0032

The Design: As I opted for the Ooh La La I knew there would be something I did not like and it’s the way Freya double-lines the bottom half of their GG+ unpadded cups. I would prefer the bra to be completely see-through for a better look but obviously there is a reason why the double lining has been seen a necessity: Freya bras are designed with bottom-heavy breasts in mind, meaning they aim to support the lower part of breasts and give you superb uplift from the very root of the breast. As I am more top-heavy when it comes to my boobs, I don’t really need this but do understand the logic behind it.

The construction is pretty much the same as with the B-G sizes even though I do feel there’s a bit more coverage and the shape is more balconette as opposed to plunge. The idea behind revising the shape for the bigger sizes seems to be the extra support as well. The cups are constructed of three parts with one vertical and one horizontal seam. This can lead to a sad “upside-down seven” shape but luckily Freya is the master of ultimate uplift. The vertical seam goes high enough to create a curved, almost a pointy shape which actually goes great under most vintage reproduction clothing I own. The colour and looks are also pretty sweet and cutesy but also go great under light-coloured clothing. The geometrical embroidery is very Freya but not too kitchy to be a turn-off for me.

DSC_0049DSC_0033
The Fit: I was a bit hesitant to order this style in 30GG as I am more of a solid 30H now with most brands. However, I had been fitted into Freya bras at Bravissimo a few months ago so I was aware that the unpadded plunge balconettes would run a bit larger than their padded balconettes. I also still wear a 30GG with my regular Deco bra and it fits well so I was pretty sure I would be fine with a GG. Luckily, I was right! The cups fit me really well though they are better for someone with a little less upper fullness, as the cups are rather closed at top.

The cups are quite deep for a British brand so if Polish bras are out of the question for you and you need deep cups/narrow wires, this is a brand for you. The shape is extremely projected and the uplift is heavenly, although I do prefer a little more subtle look under some clothing. The band features a three hooks and eyes and is one of the most comfortable 30 bands I own, meaning it’s nice and snug but has enough stretch to accommodate fair amount of movement.

DSC_0037DSC_0060
Comfort: I am very well aware of how comfy Freya sets can be so my expectations were quite high. The underwires were definitely a bit on the stiffer side and I couldn’t wear the bra for multiple hours first but the wires loosened up a bit after a few wears and now they feel fine. The band and the straps are sturdy so they give me a good amount of support. The material is sturdy mesh that supports the breasts well and it’s not itchy either so I do feel the bra suits my sensitive skin. The straps are full-convertible which is always a plus for you petite and tall girls!

I opted for the panties in a size Small as my butt has grown a bit since last time I bought Freya knickers and it was a great choice size-wise. Freya bottoms usually run a bit large so as I am now between Small and Medium when it comes to panties, the Small fits me spot-on. The back part of the panties is made to prevent any VPL which is great for such a basic but pretty set as this.

All in all I really love my Freyas even though they are rarer goodies in my lingerie wardrobe. I am also ever so grateful for Clara Olivia for sending this set to be, it’s a good staple in my spring wardrobe. The bra costs an affordable £33 and the brief £16,50. The line also includes a thong, a short and a lovely suspender belt. The size range of the bra is incredible and suits both smaller and larger breasts with sizes 28-38 B-J! If you are as pale as me (see, I almost blend into the white wall!) this would be a great “nude” bra to go under those light-coloured spring clothes 🙂

What do you think of the set? Also, if you are GG+ would you like your mesh bras single or double-lined? Let me know in the comments!

Suomeksi: Moikka! Miten teidän joululoma on mennyt? Itse toivun vielä suklaista ja juustoista, mutta muuten olen nauttinut ihan alusvaatteiden täyteisestä ja rauhaisasta joulusta. Nyt arvostelupinoon on kertynyt jo aikamoinen määrä settejä, joten tässäpä olisi teille yksi uusi vaihtoehto esimerkiksi kevään vaaleita trendivärejä ajatellen! Freyan Ooh La La -setin minulle lähetti brittiläinen Evedenin merkkejä myyvä Clara Olivia mutta mielipiteeni ovat luonnolisesti omiani 😉

Minulle Freyan rintsikoista toppaamattomat plunge-mallit ovat tuttuja lähinnä vuosien takaa, sillä mieluisia malleja ei ole sattunut kohdalle sitten Arabellan. Tämä Ooh La La -setti on kuitenkin todella sievä ja mätsää hyvin kalpeaan ihooni, joten ajattelin, että miksipäs ei! Geometriset kuviot tuovat settiin mukavan lisän ja alushousujen saumaton takaosa lisäävät käytännöllisyysaspektia. Ainoa asia minkä ulkonäöstä muuttaisin, olisi kuppien vuoraus niiden alaosassa – tätä vuorausta kun ei ole koissa B-G ja minulle riittäisi vähempikin tuki kupin alaosaan.

Valitsin rintsikoista perinteisen Freya-kokoni eli 65GG:n, sillä olin pannut merkille, että Freyan toppaamattomat liivit ovat usein hieman isohkoja kupeistaan. Malli istuukin melko hyvin, huolimatta siitä että se on selkeästi tarkoitettu hieman alapainotteisemmille rinnoilla. Tämä tarkoittaa sitä, ettei rintojen yläosassa ole niin paljon täytettä kuin minulla 😉 Tuplatissiä ei silti ole näkyvissä, joten kaikki hyvin! Ympärys tuntuu kivan napakalta muttei läheskään niin tiukalta kuin monet muut 65:t. Olkaimet ovat koko matkaltaan säädettävät, joten sopivat monen pituiselle naiselle ongelmitta. Kupit puolestaan ovat melko syvät ja kaarituet kapeahkot, joten mikäli Puolasta tilaaminen tuntuu liian hurjalta, on Freya hyvä vaihtoehto puolalaisille sisaruksilleen.

Kaiken kaikkiaan setti on mukava ja tukeva ja hintakin on Clara Olivialla kohdallaan, 33 puntaa rintsikoista, 16,50 alushousuista. Postikulut Suomeen kustantavat reilun kympin, niinkuin suurimmassa osassa muissakin brittiläisissä nettikaupoissa. Kokojakin löytyy valtava määrä, 60-85 B-J! Tästä mallista löytyy siis myös vaikeasti löydettäviä kokoja kuten 65C ja 60B. Mitä mieltä te olette tästä setistä? 🙂
