This past month I've been super efficient and have ticked lots of things off my Wedding To Do List. Having found The Dress, the next big thing for me was to get some gorgeous lingerie to wear underneath it.
Usually I am a t-shirt bra and big(ish) drawers kind of girl. I go for comfort over sexiness (sorry to my poor husband-to-be!) The fact of the matter is I have huge bosoms. And I like to have those bad boys strapped down so that they can't do any damage. I also have a particularly voluptuous bottom which I like to cover up with proper knickers. I'm sorry but g-strings are NOT comfortable.
But despite my simple and comfortable choice of every day underwear, I have always wanted to go uber glamourous with my wedding lingerie. I love silk and lace plus, of course, I want to make sure I'm wearing something that fits perfectly and holds everything in!
Panache, makers of gorgeous underwear and swimwear for us ladies with ample assets, were recommended to me by quite a few people, and I was just about to start my research into local stockists when they approached me and asked if I'd like to review one of their bridal sets. Needless to say I jumped at the chance - and I opted for the Evie bridal basque and briefs.
The Evie set is just beautiful - it's an ivory colour and has super pretty lace detailing with satin bows and tiny little pearls. The basque has multiway straps (or can be worn strapless) and suspenders and is the perfect length - it covers my tummy but still exposes a little bit of flesh between it and the briefs (which was what I chose to go with it). The briefs also have the cutest little peephole at the back which I adore!
The set fits like a DREAM and is honestly everything I ever wanted in wedding lingerie. Apart from being completely gorgeous, it's also comfortable and, most importantly, extra supportive. I normally shy away from strapless bras due to the lack of support but feel very confident in this one - the boning and underwire both seem lovely and strong and the cups are large so I needn't worry about *ahem* popping out on the day.
I'm so happy with the set and can't wait to wear it! Only three months to go! xoxox
Panache sizes start at a D cup and go all the way up to a KK. Aside from their wedding lingerie, they also make every day underwear, sports bras and swimwear - all of which are beautifully stylish and supportive - and they are available from lots of stores, including top online retailers Figleaves and Bravissimo.
This underwear set was gifted to me by Panache.
