I bought this beautiful set a while ago but I never got around to reviewing it. I adore the colour, and it’s the only green lingerie set I own (currently!). I’ll take any opportunity to take photos of myself in gorgeous lingerie and share it with the world – hope you like it!
The longline bra set was on offer at Lovehoney when I made the purchase so I snapped it up for an absolute bargain of around £20. The bra has a black panel running down the centre which is quite unusual, and having that bit of black means I can team the bra with black knickers instead of green.
A full set!
The set comprises a longline bra, skimpy thong and a suspender belt with suspender clips. The only thing it lacks is stockings, but I have plenty of those at home! As the bra has a touch of black in it, black stockings look particularly good.
What I love the most about this set is the colour and the style of the bra. The cups are padded enough to give me a decent cleavage, without being so padded that they feel bulky. It is really comfortable for long-term wear, I’ve worn this out and about several times and it doesn’t rub anywhere. The straps are standard size (quite thin) but having the extra length underneath the boobs makes me feel better supported. There is underwiring in the cups.
How does it fit?
The bra is a perfect fit. The medium size fits around my 32DDs very well and the light padding pushes them up to afford me an impressive cleavage. The thong is very skimpy, and doesn’t cover much at the front! It is more of a g-string than a thong as the back is basically just elastic. It looks cute though as it matches, and I love to have a pair of matching knickers, but do you know what would make me really happy? 2 pairs of matching knickers with a bra set, both being different. A fuller thong and a pair of briefs would be perfect in my book!
The suspender belt is the worst fitting part as it’s quite thin and flimsy, so when I attach stockings, the belt hangs low on my waist. I can adjust the stocking connectors a little but it doesn’t really fit me any better. The parts the stocking connectors are attached to tend to hang lower too so the belt doesn’t sit straight on my waist. I’ve only worn the belt once when I first bought the set, since then it’s just been sat in my drawer! I do wear the thong with the bra occasionally but mostly I wear the bra with a pair of black knickers.
How does it look?
I feel really good wearing this set. It looks pretty thanks to the colour, and the longline bra is so flattering as it narrows towards my waist making my waist appear smaller. The thong is very cute from the front, but you can barely see it from the back!! The suspender belt is what lets this outfit down I feel, as it doesn’t sit right. You could team this set with a black one with stockings.
I think longline bras are generally flattering on all body types. I am petite, so I avoided longline for years as I assumed it would shorten my already short body! But it’s actually super flattering. I find them slimming, and comfortable – and the extra support from having a thicker band below my boobs is great. If you’ve never bought a longline bra set before, you could potentially be missing out on something super flattering!
