My review on Tropics Bra by Freya



I was meant to have this review up a few days after I put up the teaser but two weeks have gone past! When did that happen? Ok so I wore the Tropics Bra by Freya for a week and loved it.

The red colour is really cheery in the morning especially now during Winter in Australia. That bluey/purpley fluorescent colour in the cups is my favourite. I don't know why but I love it. Maybe because it's so vibrant and unexpected.

Cute bow!

I also love the deep pink bows they are so cute.

The plunge style worked a treat when I was wearing a lower cut sweater. It gave a nice shape and no bra peeking over the sides.

The straps are comfy though I much prefer them to be thinner.  Thick straps like this are never attractive no matter how colourful the print.

I got this bra in a larger cup size because I am finding the cup sizes are getting a bit snug and not covering and supporting my boobs as they should. Doing this I found I had a bit more room in the cups but my boobs were still covered and supported. Especially good during that time of the month when you need extra support and coverage.

The sheer material along the top of the cups and the scalloped edge are really pretty. I had no bulge and the bra fit just right.

The material on the bottom part of the cups at first felt slightly plasticey but as I wore it more it softened. I am sure after a wash and wear it will soften more. It was never uncomfortable just an observation I made.

Elastic around straps on the back.

The only thing that bothered me a bit was the elastic around the wings at the back of the bra along the top and bottom. I felt like they were a bit tight but as I continued to wear it they got a bit more comfy. I am sure after a wash and another wear it will be comfier still.

All in all I really like this bra. It's comfy, pretty and supportive. I highly recommend. It is a great buy.

Available in sizes  28DD - 38H. (AUS6DD - 16H)

Tartan Fling Bra by Bravissimo

Tartan Fling Cup by Bravissimo


Long time to hear from me. I am still here and I have a bra review for you. This bra I have been wearing for a week and I love it.

I usually go for bright colours but I really loved the more subtle colours on the Tartan Fling Bra by Bravissimo and bought it instantly.  I think I loved it because I have never seen a bra with a tartan print on it and had to have it.


Silky Soft Tartan Fling Bra by Bravissimo

What I love about this bra is how soft it is. The cups are soft, the straps are soft and the lace is soft. It is a very comfortable bra.  It doesn't dig in anywhere. It feels great. It feels so nice on my boobs too.

Even though the colours are subtle in the photos, in person they are lovely and vibrant in a subtle way. The different shades of lilac and purple, the soft cream background and the lines of aqua are really pretty.

Love the aqua blue bow. So pretty.

I really love the gorgeous aqua bow with lilac bow overlay in the centre of the cups. It is so adorable.

The lattice embroidery on the top of the cups is a lovely feature and still very supportive. In the photo the lace looks thick but the lace is actually sheer. The purple flower embroidery is beautiful too.


Silky soft bra straps. So Comfy.

The straps are also super silky soft and so comfortable. 

Yes this is one of my favourite bras.  It is so comfortable. Has beautiful colours and is super soft. What more can you want in a bra. I highly recommend it.

Available in sizes 28F - 38K. (AUS 6F-16K)


Note: The colours in the photo's I took are a bit dark but it was the best lighting I could get. The colours really are a lovely soft vibrant colour, trust me :)

Pin Up Swimwear from Midnight Grace by figleaves


Pin Up Swimwear from Midnight Grace by figleaves.com

How hot is this retro inspired pin up swimwear? Let me answer that for you, it is super hot. I really love these high waisted bikini bottoms which seem to be the fashion trend for this season as I have seen many similar designs.

What you are viewing above is the Pin Up Underwired Bandeau Bikini Top and Pin Up High Waisted Shaping Bikini Brief from Midnight Grace by figleaves.com in green.

Can't you just see Marilyn Monroe in this? It is so classy and classic. I love the polka dots and stripes with slight ruching on the side.

These will definitely hide the jelly and give you a sexy shape perfect for flaunting your figure on the beach.

The bikini top also comes in a non padded underwired halter neck and if the high waisted briefs aren't for you then check out the frill bikini brief. It is super cute.

This design also comes in a lighter and darker blue.

If the two piece is not for you how about the stunning strapless pin up swimwear one piece with detachable straps below.

Top 5 Tips on Caring for your Bras

 
Bra Voe Bra Storage


This is a good little list on caring for your bras that I found at Bra-Voe.com. They have a bra storage system which is a very good invention. This list was written up by Helena the inventor of Bra-Voe. Do you have any good bra caring tips?

Top 5 Tips on Caring for your Bras


1. When washing your bras in a washing machine, always put them into a lingerie bag. This will prevent the bras hooks from catching on the delicate material or getting caught and twisted within the wash.

2. Make sure you use a delicate cycle with cool water and mild detergent to help protect the delicate fabric.

3. Alternate bras more often so you don't end up washing the same bras over and over causing them to lose their shape more quickly.

4. Never put your bras in the dryer or wring them out. Let them drip dry on a clothes rack.

5. When storing bras never invert the cups because it can lead to lumps and dimples in the fabric and padding. These lumps can show through your clothing and ruin your outfit. Instead use Bra-Voe to store your bras.

Loving the exuberant Freya Tropics Plunge Bra


Freya Tropics Plunge Bra

The second I saw the Freya Tropics Plunge Bra I said WOW! I love all those bright, vibrant colours plus it is the perfect colour for a red hot Valentine's Day.

I really love it when the colours run over the straps. I think all bras should do this as bra straps can usually be seen through tops in summer so why not make it part of your outfit. 

Love the red bows, love the sheer cups and the brilliant floral design. I also love the blues peeking through the reds. What a wonderful combination. 

From the 13th February- Monday 17th February you can get this stunning bra at 20% off by using the code TWENTY at checkout. Figleaves has a sale with 20% off everything sitewide so why not treat yourself to this bra you deserve it!

Available in sizes 28D - 38G (AUS6D - 16G)

Lepel Hello Sailor Retro Swimwear

Lepel Hello Sailor Moulded Bikini Top Red

I was moseying through the swimwear at Brastop when I came along the striking Lepel Hello Sailor Bikini. The bikini top is underwired with moulded cups that are lightly padded.

The bikini is decorated with a beautiful striking red retro floral print and pinstripe trims. I love that big floppy bow in the centre of the cups. 

Available in sizes 32D - 38G (AUS 10D - 16G)


Lepel Hello Sailor Deep Pant Red

What attracted me was not the bikini top but the bikini bottoms. I adore the Lepel Hello Sailor Deep Pant. This is where the beautiful retro floral print comes alive.

You can see the bold red, the beautiful retro flowers with blue centres and the pinstripe detail around the waist. Now this is style!

These are very flattering bikini bottoms that will flatten the jelly, give you a sexy silhouette and have you feeling fabulously confident on the beach this stinking hot summer!

As I write this at 9.40pm it is 31C/88F. It actually went 41C/106F today! Yes it has been a very hot summer. Can't remember when it was this hot before. Stay cool!

Seduction by Gorgeous from Debehams D-H Cup Bras

Seduction by Gorgeous Ivory Lace Trim Balcony Bra up to G cup

I have never noticed the Seduction by Gorgeous from Debenhams line before so I will assume it is new and snuck in without me noticing it!

I am thrilled to have found it because there are similar items at Boux Avenue but those bras are available in smaller cup sizes and I miss out but the Seduction line goes up to a H cup so I win!

The bra I noticed was the Seduction by Gorgeous Ivory Lace Trim balcony bra pictured above which alerted me to this line. It looked very different to what I normally see from the Gorgeous line by Debenhams and because of this I had to have a closer inspection.

It is an elegant bra. I love the gentle ruching on the cups made of ivory satin and the lovely black lace trim on the cups that are slightly padded.

I also like the contrasting black trim on the straps and bottom of the bra. Just beautiful.

Also available in this range is the ivory lace trim hipster briefs and ivory lace trim thong.

Available in sizes 30DD - 40G  (AUS 8DD - 18G)


Seduction by Gorgeous from Debenhams Black Lace Balcony Bra up to H cup

The other bra that stood out for me is the Seduction by Gorgeous from Debenhams Black Lace Balcony Bra. 

What I noticed is that the top of the cups are made of sheer mesh with no trims. I love the simplicity of it. There is some beautiful lace detailing on the bottom portion of the cups that looks like a flower. I love the silky black straps too. It is a beautiful, sophisticated bra.

Also available in this range is black lace mesh briefs, thong and a very sexy lace suspender belt.

Bra available in sizes 30DD - 40H (AUS 8DD - 18H)



The other bra I really like in the Seduction from Gorgeous by Debenhams is the Black lace bra. Yes the bra above has the same name as this one. Come on Debenhams get creative, you can do better than this!

I like this bra because it has a sexy French boudoir flavour.  The cups are slightly padded with beautiful black lace overlay that has eyelash trims and satin panelling with a silky black bow in the centre of the cups and sexy ruched straps. A very seductive bra.

And how cute are those black lace bikini briefs? Also available in this range is a black lace insert babydoll (really sexy just ignore the boring name) and a black lace thong.

Available in sizes 30DD - 40GG (AUS 8DD - 18GG)

Note this is an extremely popular line and sizes are selling fast so get in quick to avoid disappointment. Don't dawdle like me then curse when your size sells out. I always do it. D'oh!

Which one is your favourite? I really like them all.
