If there is anything I love more than lace lingerie it’s satin lingerie.
I was going through a little lingerie slump, nothing was really catching my eye but I had a hankering for something new. Then along came the Chantal Thomass SS18 collection and this unicorn ‘Ballerine’. This was it! It’s like the designer knows me and she’s in my head..how’d you get in there?!
I adore this set for it’s simplicity and retro style, it’s the perfect shade of pink, with bows and the playfulness of a tuxedo style. It’s all so feminine and what my collection was missing.
Full cup underwire bra 75€
The bra is made up of a large stretch satin bow in the center, which covers half of each bra cup and topped with a smaller bow. The full cup underwire style is available in sizes 32A-42D and the panties in S/M/L. I was a little indecisive about getting either the underwire or the push up bra, though in the end I went with the underwire because I don’t really like too much padding. Chantal Thomass is probably one of my favourite lingerie designers, not just for her designs but I just love her whole aesthetic.
Her designs are always stunning and I don’t have as many pieces in my collection as I should, so I’m still figuring out sizing.
Inside of the bra beautifully sewn
I purchased the bra in my regular size (34D) but found the band to be a little roomy, and I could have possibly sized down in the cups. I think if I had a 34C it would have been a nicer fit, at the moment the bow only covers 3/4 of my nipples. The satin look also carries on to the straps which is lovely, (I hate it when details don’t flow throughout lingerie) and the back of the elastic straps feature the Chantal Thomass signature logo with a two hook closure. My only con is I wish the bra had thicker satin straps to give more support, I find that these thin straps aren’t comfortable for anyone over a B cup as the straps dig into your shoulders after a while.
Though the bra is out of this world cute and what originally sold me on this set, the high waisted knickers are actually my favourite part. The panties are made of soft stretch tulle with satin panels on the side and a large bow in the center (which is also removable) they give the curves just the right amount of hug. I’m always loyal to brands that are comfortable and don’t skimp on style.
I hope you’ve enjoyed seeing a little more colour on my blog and it’s something I will be working more towards this year.
Till the next set my lovelies.
