Review: Jordandene Aprons and Apparel for the Geek in You

March 28th, 2015 @ Amber

So a few months ago, I saw this awesome Harry Potter inspired handmade apron design from Jordandene and I was so excited! She creates so many fun geeky aprons for the fan girls, and she also makes printed underwear and other apparel like tees. I was smitten with this fun Weasley Wizard Wheezes Apron, with a full skirt, a really cute pocket, and in a fun colorway inspired by the famous joke shop run by every HP fan’s favorite twins. I love to bake, and even though I do it pretty often, I don’t usually wear an apron, but thats all changed now, because I have found THE apron for me.

The cuteness! Love the orange and yellow colorway, and the full skirted style of the apron. it’s really well made, and it’s handmade in NYC. It has the Weasley Wizard Wheezes logo printed on the front, and adjustable ties at the neck and waistband. Totally cute for entertaining, making butterbeer cupcakes, or pumpkin juice muffins. Accio apron! You can find this apron and many others at Jordandene. Check out some other favs below!

Review: Bosom Galore Classique Bra and Panties

March 27th, 2015 @ Amber

I love hearing about new full bust brands. Growing up as a teenager and young adult with a full bust, I had basically very few options, and most of my bras were black, with maybe a beige or ivory color thrown in once in awhile. Now, all of these years laters, it blows my mind in the best way to know that brands are specifically creating beautiful lingerie for full busts. The adolescent in me is totally psyched just as much as the adult me :) One new brand I was really excited to try is Bosom Galore, a UK based brand creating pretty and supportive styles for smaller backs and fuller busts, with band sizes 26-34 and cup sizes E-H. So far they have two styles available, the Classique, pictured above, and the Amelia. They have other colorways and styles in the works and currently have a Indiegogo campaign to take pre-orders for their Summer collection. So if you like their styles, and especially if you have a full bust/small band, it’s a great way to support this new brand by signing up as a supporter and a great way to get one of the new sets at a reduced price.

I was super excited to try this brand, and was smitten with the Classique Bra and matching knickers. I love the red/black combo, and this set is even more beautiful in person than I thought it was going to be. Made of super soft red silk and seamed cups, with a black lace detailing the tops of the cups. The bra is lightly padded, and offers nice lift and shape. The balconette style creates a beautiful silhouette, the straps are lined with red silk, and the back band offers firm support with a power mesh band.  The seams and stitching are fantastic, and this just really looks and feels like a well made bra. The band is firm, and I sized up in the cup for the perfect fit, which was lovely and offered my softer tissue breasts a really nice uplifted and pulled toward look. It creates a sophisticated and beautiful look, while also offering sex appeal, which I tend to love in my lingerie. The matching knickers (there is also a matching short or thong) are true to size, and feature a sheer stretch mesh on the back of the panty, and the front panel features smooth red silk and a undulating panel of black lace at the waistband. Available in UK sizes 6-16. I’m really excited with this brand and this first collection, and hope to see more from Bosom Galore in the future!

You can find the Classique collection and the Amelia collection at Bosom Galore

Anna Pardal Lingerie

March 25th, 2015 @ Amber

Have you tried the brand Anna Pardal? This international brand is all sorts of awesome. They create bras in cup sizes A-K, and band sizes 28-50, which is quite an impressive range. They had a nice focus on full bust, and many of their styles are pretty awesome for fuller busted women. I like their range of styles, colors, and quality, which reminds me a bit of a few popular Polish brands…which makes sense because the bras are made through the Polish brand Comexim.  Anna was super nice and wanted to send me a set for me to try out for myself, and she sent me the lovely Milk and Honey set. Which is sweet, dreamy, and girly. This lightly padded bra is made of a champagne gold material with a lace overlay with slight pink sparkles. The band is quite firm, and the cups runs a bit small, so they are Polish sizing, so size up in the cup to fit true to size, and size up in the band too. I normally wear a 34F/FF but went with a 36FF which was a great fit. The straps are adjustable, and somewhat thicker/wider straps, which some may not like. The matching panties, are made of the same sheer lace that overlays the bra, in a bikini brief style. The panties fit a bit small so if you’re in between sizes, size up, and are very light and breathable and pretty, and make a great pair with the bra. The bra also features a long champagne pink bow, small crystal jewel and two very tiny ball chain accents. Cute! Definitely different than the usual gore embellishments. The bra itself is very light, it’s not heavy, and even though it’s lined, it’s quite thin, so it won’t give you serious lift and cleavage, but it does offer a really nice shape and support.

You can see the cute embellishment, the fabric, and the label in the photos above. If you’re familiar with Comexim bras (which I’m not, I’ve yet to try the brand) I think they seem to be similar in construction and fit, from what I’ve heard of the Comexim brand. Here are a few other designs I’m currently liking from the collection:

You can find the entire collection at Comexim for Anna Pardal Lingerie.

Review: Claudette Sophia Icon in Red

March 25th, 2015 @ Amber

The lovely ladies over the Claudette surprised me with a brand new set for my birthday! Introducing the newest colorway of the popular Sophia Icon range, Gia Red. The gorgeous warm red color is bright and vivid for Spring/Summer and is a nice pop of color, with lots of lift and oomph. I have the Sophia in purple and navy, but I really adore this new red colorway. It’s a classic red with black straps and a black bow at the center gore. The matching boyshort brief features a black waistband and matching bow at the center, with a cheeky high cut in the back. If you haven’t tried the Sophia line yet, it’s super soft and smooth! The bra is lightly padded, and the material feels velvety soft. The bra features a balconette style that is gorgeous on all bust sizes, but I really love this for full busts. It provides lift and a good fit. I would size up in the cup, but not down in the band, the band is pretty true to size. The matching bottoms fit true to size, and are made of the same soft super stretchy microfiber material that feels ultra delicious on the skin!

This set is super new for SS15 and isn’t available at many shops so far, but it looks like you can find the Claudette Sophia Icon in Gia Red at Lavinia Lingerie. I hope more shops pick this set up, it’s really cute and the red is on trend for the warmer months. The fabric of this set is soft, and the style and fit is both sexy and comfortable. Such a sweet set for the coming Summer months!
