Lingerie Heaven & Freya Deco 28GG!
There’s two things that can’t excite me more – fabulous well fitting lingerie and bargain hunting. Put them together and I’m one pretty happy bunny! Allow me to introduce you to the web’s best kept secret; Lingerie Heaven.
I first came across Lingerie Heaven back when I was hunting down a specific bra which was discontinued and so hard to get hold of: the pretty Panache Tango Spirit bra with it’s quintessential floral print. My heart literally skipped when I saw the bargain £10 price tag. I’ve found all the prices are significantly lower than the RRP and as if that wasn’t good enough, you can also earn loyalty points on your purchases in return for free lingerie! I suddenly felt like I’d discovered by destiny this hub of lingerie lust worthiness. If there was ever a recession beating tip, this is one.
Lingerie Heaven website
Lingerie Heaven is a neat little shop tucked away in a corner of the web with its roots firmly planted in fitting excellence. Should you be lucky enough to live near the Hertfordshire base you have the beneficial option of a proper fitting consultation, but even if you don’t, there’s always help and advice on hand via email from an experienced fitter. For anyone who struggles to source small backs such as 28s or need a cup right up to a KK, you’re sure to find what you need right here.
I was really interested to find out that Lingerie Heaven was founded out of the same frustration experienced by many of us. Proprietor, Clare, started the business after realising the very same problem with finding well fitting, supportive and attractive underwear in larger cup sizes. In a day when the archaic +4 is still being rung out, it’s refreshing to know that this is one retailer which shuns the old ways.
Clare told me “As someone with a smaller back size and a large cup I understand just how frustrating it is to find a good fitting bra and so I wanted to provide a ‘to order’ service so as many sizes as possible are available for my customers rather than selling just the items I had in stock.” Adding, “As a fitter I find a lot of women are a smaller back size than they realise as they are all using the +4 or +5 method to measure themselves when this does not give an accurate fit.”
I have to be honest, I’ve never had such a thorough and helpful consultation before. Clare was keen to help me find the best bra to suit me and following some wonderful options decided to go for the Freya Deco. I explained my recurring problem with sizing differences across brands and ranges, which was when the Deco in 28GG was recommended. Freya Deco in a 28GG? You heard right. They’ve only gone and introduced a GG to the 28 back options! Time for celebration, me thinks!
I’ve been envious of other Deco loyalists because I couldn’t join the club. I’d heard much about the amazing fit and got a taste of it via Deco’s pretty sister, Ashlee, but I’d found the 30GG a little too big. It was like a dream come true to be told of the arrival of 28GG this month.
The bra arrived speedily and I was ridiculously excited to get the package opened. I felt like I was eight years old again, opening the goodies in my Christmas stocking at the foot of my bed. Deco was lust at first sight and loved followed once I slipped into it…
Me wearing Deco Plunge Bra
I was sent the Deco plunge bra in charcoal which is a dark smokey grey colour. I actually love wearing grey so it’s a very pleasant, wearable shade. This Deco features two little pearlescent buttons and a grey bow to the centre gore.
The fit is spot on, I’m so pleased with it. I’ve been finding lately that 30 bands fit me best with Freya bras but as the band on the Deco is quite stretchy the 28 is perfect. The moulded seam-free cups are well supporting and yet gives a remarkable cleavage with a natural rounded shape. What I love about the Deco over Ashlee or Taylor is that the cups are totally smooth without additional frills or lace which means it’s excellent to wear under close fitting tops. Through my t shirt, I have no bulging, no unsightly boob spillage and I, for once, have a perfectly unadulterated silhouette. How refreshing to finally find a supportive and comfortable bra that doesn’t advertise through my clothes!
No spillage or quadra-boob!
And comfort would be the defining sensation I’ve experienced through wearing Deco for several days now. I’ve been able to wear it through entire days of activities and not once felt like I wanted to take it off. I think this is what makes a really great bra, something I’m sure my fellow fuller bosom friends would agree on. 🙂
