Scantilly Voodoo Bra and Ouvert Panties Review for Large Cup Lingerie

July 29th, 2017 @ Amber

One of the sexiest lingerie sets for full bust women of the year is from Scantilly, of course. Large Cup Lingerie was kind enough to offer me this set up for review after I had been swooning over it. The Scantilly Voodoo will put you under it’s spell. The Scantilly Voodoo Bra and matching Scantilly Voodoo Ouvert Crotchless Brief is magical. In all of it’s strappy gorgeousness. It’s a bondage-esque inspired set with black mesh and black satin. Unlined cups, but with a soft cup overlay, givingĀ  layered look, with a double strappy detail at the neckline, and silver toned studs around the keyhole detail at the top of each cup. Sexy! The bra fits true to size, the bands tend to run a bit generous, so size down for a firmer band. The cups that overlay the underwired cups are slightly darted, so it has a hard time staying flat on my bust and ofter looks like a little nip or pokey tip of the softer cup, but you can smooth it out with your fingers or try to move more breast tissue into the cup if it bothers you. The straps are adjustable, and so are the smaller straps that embellish the front of the neckline. The briefs are available as a strappy high waist design, or a crotchless ouvert design with straps over the butt in the back. I’m obsessed with all things ouvert, so of course I went with the ouvert style. Scantilly only offers S-XL knicker sizing, unlike the sister brand Curvy Kate which offers an XS bottom. I’d love it if Scantilly offered XS and perhaps larger sizing as well, as I usually wear a XS bottom and so the Smalls run a bit large on me. I tend to be busty but petite elsewhere, so would love to see the brand grow a bit in the sizing areas for some of us gals who are busty but small everywhere else.

The bra fits well, it offers some cleavage with straps that go over the tops of the breasts. It’s really a sexy set. This bra is so fierce! It’s hard to wear this bra and not feel like a total badass. The matching ouvert bottom is so sexy, with black crisscross straps along the back of the open butt, an open gusset, and then a small metal toned Scantilly disc at the waistband. These ouvert bottoms are super scandalous, and leave a lot to be seen. Which I love! This set is a winner for me. Great lift and support and shaping from Scantilly as usual, super sexy and trendy design, some of the best in the full bust bras market, and matching ouvert knickers. You can find the Scantilly Voodoo set at Large Cup Lingerie, which offers FREE worldwide shipping and awesome prices!

Review of the Avocado Lingerie Mirabelle

July 29th, 2017 @ Amber

I love how pretty and stylish Polish bra brand Avocado is. There has been a surge in popularity of polish bra brands, and while some of them have great fit and a nice size range, I feel like I’m still looking for another type of aesthetic. Avocado Lingerie has that aesthetic. Gorgeous delicate designs, sexy silhouettes, unique and interesting designs, available in a great fit and also available in full bust sizing. Avocado is the sexy polish bra brand in my book. They were kind enough to send me their Mirabelle set, which actually reminds me of a AP style of design. It’s the kind of design I might be interested in but rarely comes in my size. This cute set, which the sheer panels, delicate embroidery and little pop of bright pink color is so fun and pretty and sexy at the same time. Avocado fits very well, with a firm band and offers great lift and support.

I like the way that their styles lift the bust and center it, while also providing nice cleavage. I really like the eyelet trim detailing, the little bright pink embroidered dots, and floral motif embroidery print over the sheer cups. The cups are paneled for added support of the bust. The band is firm, but I like it because it makes my bust feel lifted and supported and doesn’t make my shoulders feel sore from straps digging in. I definitely recommend this brand to those who love Polish bra brands but really want sexy and unique sets, or for those who are new to the Polish bra game and would like to start with a brand that offers great quality and fit. Check out some of my other favorite designs from Avocado below:

Sugar Candy Bra Review: Everyday Fuller Bust Wireless Seamless Full Bust Bra

July 26th, 2017 @ Amber

Cake Lingerie, best known for their stylish and functional maternity and nursing bras, just released their new fuller bust bra design that is seamless, wireless, and supportive. They are marketing the bra to all and have created Sugar Candy as a sub-brand of the regular Cake company. So far there is one bra style, it’s a wire-free bra, with hook and eye closure, and a lot of lift and support without any padding or underwires. I didn’t think it was possible for a wireless bra to be so supportive of my boobs, but it’s happened! The Sugar Candy Bra brand was kind enough to send me their black Everyday Seamless Bra, which features knit cup construction, XS-XXL sizing, and is made from a soft yarn type of material. Not the type of knitting yarn you’ may think of, this is a stretchy and supportive knit that almost feels like a leotard. The cool thing about this bra is that it’s specifically made for fuller bust women, but it offers small bands too, as well as larger bands, so it will fit full busts *and* plus sized women. No bra sizing here, just a handy dandy size chart that tells you which size you should order based on your band size and your cup size. I ended up going it a size Small, which wouldn’t fit in any other type of bralette or bra sizing system, but since these are made for a fuller cup, the size Small was a great fit offering my a tight band and a larger cup that conformed and fit my breast shape while also lifting it and offering me mad crazy support. This bra rocks! I could even work out in this bra. I’m so excited about Sugar Candy and I really hope they continue to take bras in this size range, and offer more styles and colors in the future. This bra is really comfortable, and the V neckline offers an added oomph of cleavage making this bra anything but boring. I need to buy a few more of these because thats how awesome this bra is. I was worried that it would squish my softer breast tissue too much and give it an unsightly shape, but I actually really like the shape that it gave me, I actually felt more happy with my au natural shape when I wore this. Under the cups there is reinforced material and it really scoops up the breast tissue to bring it up and to the front.

I very rarely get to wear wireless designs, because my boobs are heavy and they aren’t super perky either, so I like them really lifted and supported. Bralettes or wireless bras aren’t usually synonymous with support, and thats okay, they’re usually for comfort. But I was thrilled to be able to find that a wirefree style actually worked for my size, my breast type and was basically everything I had been looking for in a wirefree design. I am super sweet on Sugar Candy Bra. If you want to check them out and order one, it’s available in classic black or a beige color. Available at Sugar Candy Bra.

 

Pour Moi? Checkers Bikini Review for UK Swimwear

July 26th, 2017 @ Amber

I love swimwear that specifically makes sizes for full busts, but doesn’t necessarily “look” full bust. By that I mean, a piece of swimwear that has obvious underwires and a typical bra shape. Most full bust bikinis fall into this category, so I was really loving the Pour Moi Checkers Bikini from retailer UK Swimwear. UK Swimwear is sister site of UK Lingerie, and they carry great brands for all sizes. I really like the fun gingham black and white print of this set, but I also like that the checkered print reminds me of a flag at the finish line. The bikini top has a halter tie, firm band, and hidden underwire. It looks like a regular wireless triangle bikini bra and thats my favorite part! It fits well, and because of the hidden underwire it actually offers lift and cleavage. So cute and fun! The matching bottoms are a high waist brief with checkered panel at the front and back but semi-sheer black mesh side panels with black stripes. The bottoms and bra fit true to size. The bikini top uses UK bra sizing.

There is a oversized black bow at the center gore, not sure how I feel about that, I think the bikini could have done without it, but it’s still cute and doesn’t detract from the over all look. I like the cut and style of the high waisted bottom, especially the side panels. This set is so fun and not a print of design I see often in full bust sizing. I’m curious to check out more swimwear from the Pour Moi? brand. Special thanks to UK Swimwear for sending me this bikini to review! You can find Pour Moi bikinis and other swimwear brands such as Freya, Gossard, Gotexx and more.

I also tried the Pour Moi Glamazon Bikini which is so sexy and fun and really a fun design for the full bust swimwear market, but it didn’t work well for me as the sizing ran small and my nips were super exposed by the fishnet on the bikini top. It might have to do with my breasts being more full on top than on bottom though. Check out all of the full bust bikinis at UK Swimwear, and be sure to check their selection of Pour Moi for sexy fuller bust styles.

Cora from The Lingerie Addict modeling the Playful Promises Bettie Page Faux Feather Robe and Chemise

Have you seen the awesome new lookbook images that Playful Promises just released? They asked the lovely Cora from the powerhouse lingerie blog The Lingerie Addict to model for their Bettie Page Lingerie collection and the photos are stunning! Cora looks fantastic, and the pieces are stylized and the color palette of the photos is just a real treat. It’s always great when brands consistently feature diversity in their lookbooks, and it’s so cool that they asked Cora to model for them because they are a big fan of her blog and all of the work she does, and they specifically wanted to feature a beautiful black pinup to showcase pinup in a way we see far too less often than we should. Cora wrote an awesome post about her experience with modeling for this new collection and she also included fit notes and her opinion on all of the wonderful pieces she modeled. Go check out her blog post and then go shop the collection on Playful Promises! Go celebrate this awesome new diverse photoshoot at Playful Promises. We see black models very rarely in fashion lingerie and in the market in general, representation is so important and does matter. So please go support the brand and vote with your money!
