It’s been a tough few weeks, this week especially. I received these pieces a little while ago and have only just found the motivation to put them on and feel good.
I’m currently working for a a non ethical fast fashion house where my boss constantly raves on about losing weight, all our models are real life barbie dolls and there is no diversity in size or ethnicity whatsoever. The environment has really taken a toll on me personally. But enough about that. This is a positive space.
Yesterday I took a much needed me day and channeled some creative energy, which should keep me recharged for the rest of the week.
I think every lingerie loving gal has tried one of Kayleigh Peddie‘s wonderful creations. Me? I’m always a little late to the game, I spend too much time ooh-ing and ahh-ing then getting distracted by something else! I’ve been wanting to try one of her designs for as long as I can remember, but places like the local AP store always got in the way. I’m glad they have now closed their doors.
So I got my chance and here are my findings. Order time was as stated on the website which was great, my goodies were handmade in Montréal and shipped after 3 weeks. All three items were ordered in a size small.
Evan Bra $76 CAD
All of those pretty gold rings are what lured me in. The mesh is soft comfortable and it fits me rather well.. well except for the bra. According to Kayleigh Peddie’s sizing chart I was a size small (my bust is 34″). I didn’t find that it fit well, you know when it cuts in on the cleavage, that’s never really a good look. So I’m pretty bummed about that.
Elena Garter $166 CAD
The suspender. This is the holy grail, I think I may have a love hate relationship with this one. It’s beautiful, look at it sitting there like some sort of cephalopod like creature! It’s my first six strap suspender and to be honest I had to channel my inner Regan MacNeil to get it on, maybe my stockings were just too thick? But I got there in the end and it was worth it. LOVE!
The thong. What can I say, can a thong be any comfier? Probably not. I don’t own any high cut panties because I don’t think they suit my body shape. I wasn’t limber like the girls I had usually seen this type of cut on so this is a first for me. I still don’t think high cut panties look as great on my figure as others but I love these anyway. The adjustable waist band is a bonus which means they won’t be digging in. I’ll be getting alot of wear out these. Til death do us part!
Elena Thong $46 CAD
The brands designs are clean, simple and edgy all in one. I am totally lusting after all the pink and red in the SS17 collection. Will definitely order a size medium in the bra and report back to y’all.
I will close for now my lovelies.
Till the next set my lovelies.
