My size: 36H
Fit: My bra size has been all over the place recently as I have gotten to grips with changing my diet. I estimated that I am back to being a 36H/34HH at present, and went for a 36H in this bra as Flirtelle can be rather firm. As it stands I should have maybe gone for a 34HH as the band felt like it had a little give too it, but the 36H felt perfectly comfortable and the band didn’t ride up. The cups felt good and gave me the most amazing orb like cleavage from the from. The three part construction meant that from the side my boobs looked a little pointy, but that was not noticeable under clothes. The under-wire under my armpits was a little lower than I would like which meant I had some slight spillage. 4.5/5
Comfort: The three hooks and eyes meant that the band felt good and firm when on the tightest hook – the fit I would have in a 34HH. I wore this bra for 3 days in a row at work and it was so comfy and supportive. The straps were wide enough to not dig into my fat and there were no uncomfortable scratchy bits or digging wires. A flawless 5/5
Occasion: I wore this bra to work as I said. It was perfect under a white shirt, and under a fitted top with a deep v. The central gore was low enough to be a successful plunge and the pattern and colour were not visible through my shirt. It is a simple yet gorgeous bra with a subtle rose pattern that almost has a bridal look too it, but can be worn on a variety of occasions. A very very versatile bra, I really cannot fault it on that front. 5/5
Briefs: The briefs I picked were a size 20. They don’t have too much stretch to them meaning that my overly large bottom struggled a bit. However they didn’t cut in and helped create a clean smooth silhouette under my clothes. 4/5
Rating: I give this set an overall 4.5/5. The price is amazing, the bra is beautiful and gives me a great shape and loads of support and I can see it suiting many women.
