Lingerie, lingerie, give it to me!! Ooh I do love glamorous undies. I won the gorgeous Lovehoney Parisienne Wine Bra Set in a bloggers competition, hurrah! Thanks Lovehoney, you’re ace.
Lovehoney say this about their Parisienne lingerie range:
Elegant and seductive with a provocative edge, Parisienne encapsulates effortless contemporary French chic.
…I couldn’t agree more. The Parisienne design is stunning, chic and super feminine. I particularly love the colour of the wine set (anything resembling wine appeals to me) and I’m looking to get some nude coloured stockings to go with it so it looks truly vintage.
Looks & Feel
The set is made from floral lace and sheer mesh. The longline bra has a deep plunging V neckline and the knickers sit high on the waist. I’m short in the body and don’t usually wear high waisted knickers as they shorten my body, which sadly these do too. But they still manage to look gorgeous and I imagine they’d look unbelievably sexy on someone with a longer body!
The bra is pure vintage glamour, but sadly it doesn’t amplify my ample cleavage. It isn’t designed as a booster I don’t feel. The V shape and cross over straps make my boobs look really nice, the straps crossing over at my shoulders. So pretty! The cups are a tad skimpy and my nipples tend to fall out. Therefore I wouldn’t wear the bra out for fear of ‘nipple spillage’! But it’s lovely to wear in the bedroom and has had a rather nice effect on hubby 😉
The suspenders in the knickers are good quality and don’t fall out, even when you’re moving around a lot (if you know what I mean). The knickers are crotchless so can be kept on for sex, and there is no chafing or rough fabric. There were no loose threads on either the bra or knickers, it appears to be a very well made set.
Size & Fit
I ordered the wine Parisienne set in a size medium which claims to fit a size 10 – 12. I’m a size 10, with 32DD boobs and I’m 5’1. So did it fit me?
The bra fits me well, although it’s a little skimpy and my nipples fall out. It feels comfortable and I can adjust it at the back using the hook and eye fastening, and on both of the straps to get a nice, snug fit. The strap around my back is nice and thick, with 3 rows of 3 hooks and eyes so you can adjust it quite a lot. It doesn’t dig in anywhere and I can move about easily. It’s underwired which supports my boobs, and lightly and comfortably padded.
The knickers fit perfectly. They show off the bottom of my cheeks and sit comfortably on my waist, with a thick band of lace at the top. The crotchless design gives ample access to my lady bits, although it sits quite far back so I have to pull them forwards a little to reach my clit.
The stockings fit well and don’t make my thighs bulge at the tops like some do. They are good quality, and I’ve managed to wear them three times now without tearing them!!
