Review: Affinitas Parfait Charlotte in Dusty Rose
The Charlotte Padded Bra and Panties have had a makeover for AW2014 when the design now comes in a a Dusty Rose color. So pretty. The Affinitas Parfait Charlotte Padded Bra and Affinitas Parfait Charlotte High-Waisted Panties. The Charlotte design still comes in the super cute vintage style with black contrasting stripes over the padded cups and a a bow at the center gore. The straps are thicker and wide-set and adjustable. The back band offers a nice amount of stretch but is also pretty true to size if not a bit tight, so I would suggest going up a band size if you’re in between sizes. I went with a 34E and am thinking I really should have went with my usual 34F, as the cups were a bit small on the Charlotte. Not so much that it was a huge problem, but enough that I spill over the top a bit. The cups are 3 part cups for a nice shape and support and are padded with foam. The bra is so pretty though! It also features side support panels at the outer sides of each cup for added support. The material on the bra is lovely too, made of satin, poly and spandex. I have this set in Red, and found that the band ran a bit large and the cups true to size if not a bit small. Now Parfait just added some sizes and made some changes to offer larger cup sizes, so this may be why I noticed a bit of change in size.
The matching High-Waist panty is so cute! It features the same satin and poly-spandex fabrics along with the black contrasting to give it a pretty retro look. The material is so super soft and delicious. I really like the feel of the panties, and the fit. They fit true to size and fit higher up near your bellybutton. They have a bow at the center waistband and a retro full button back. Super cute! This panties make a great set with the padded bra. Affinitas Parfait is releasing a new color of the Charlotte for SS2014 in a bright pink, can’t wait for that color! I had Charlotte in Red, and now in Dusty Rose, and I like the set so much I’d like to add a few more colors to my collection. I like the shape and feel of this bra, and I feel like it’s a great bra for my asymmetrical breasts, as the padding and the adjustable straps makes it ideal to tighten the straps on one side, while the padding offer oomph to the smaller breast. I adore the Affinitas Parfait Charlotte, and can’t wait to see what other colors they bring to upcoming collections!
You can find the Affinitas Parfait Charlotte Bra and Panty at Her Room, where the bra is available in back sizes starting at 30 and goes up to cup size G, and the panty is available in sizes XS-XXL. If high-waist panties aren’t your style, this bra can also be purchased with a matching brief instead!
