I recently had the opportunity to try out a couple of bras from UK Lingerie. For those who haven’t used the website before, it’s an online treasure trove of beautiful lingerie. From shapewear and sleepwear to sports bras and corsets, they’ve got everything the lingerie enthusiast could dream of, at prices to suit all budgets. Even more importantly, this website is a gem for those with a fuller bust, as they carry sizes right up to a J cup.
I opted to try two different styles of bra, one by Mimi Holliday and one by Pour Moi. Pour Moi do a stunning range of items that would make any girl feel like the Queen of her Boudoir. Although they have items in the range going up to a J, I fell in love with this stunning Pour Moi Instinct Underwired Bra, which goes up to a G cup. Depending on the brand, I generally take a 32GG (my back measurement is 33, meaning I can size to 32 or 34 depending on style), so in this bra, I sister sized to a 34G, as they don’t make a 32GG.
There’s no getting away from it, this is a sexy bra. I’ve never been brave enough to try the harness style, so the cheeky lacy straps across the cup felt like a good middle ground between a more traditional bra and a harness. It’s well made and feels robust, which is just as well when there is a lot to support!
The underwiring is robust and comfortable and the central gore sits flat to my chest. I would say that the cup just about fits – had a 34GG or 32H been available, they may have been a slightly better fit in the cup, but on the whole, the bra is comfortable and fits quite well. There is a little bit of bulge, which I think the next cup size up would take care of, but this may also be due to the style as the cup is cut quite low. My breasts are uplifted and well supported and the bra itself makes me feel like a vixen.
This bra is also surprisingly versatile. Although very sexy, it’s supportive and comfortable enough to wear for a night out and worn with the right dress, could give an outfit a whole new look. I like how it looks with my Dolores Doll dress from Collectif – I just wish I’d thought to add a red belt to set of the decorative bows!
I’m really pleased with this bra and it’s definitely one of the prettiest I’ve had for a while. I always say that a good bra is all that is needed to make any girl feel good and this one makes me feel fabulous. Own your body. I may not be a lingerie model, but we all deserve to feel good. The Pour Moi Instinct Underwired Bra retails for £26 and matching briefs are available.
Bras at UK Lingerie start at £8 and go right up to £97. There is something for everyone and delivery is quick. Don’t forget to check back for my review on the Mimi Holliday bra!
