Fashion - Freya Deco Moulded Plunge Bra Review2:01:00 pm
Ever since my lady lumps started growing, my Mum, also a larger busted lady, has constantly drilled into me how important it is to wear a correctly fitting bra. As I have got older I have developed a slight obsession with having nice matching underwear, Mum I blame you! One of my must do's everyday is to wear matching underwear, not for anyone else just for me. It makes me feel good and you never know when you could get hit by a bus, at least you would have matching underwear if the worst was to happen. Blogs like Fuller Figure Fuller Bust and Big Cup Little Cup have inspired me to feature more of my obsession here on my blog so here goes my first underwear review.
Every girl should own a simple nude bra, simple. The Freya Deco Moulded Plunge is the perfect example. Its smooth with minimal detail so not the most interesting to look at but perfect in so many other ways. They are so verstile, you can wear them under absolutely anything and I personally prefer them for wearing under white to make that area slightly less obvious than it does wearing a white bra that gives that white as snow bust area. I think a nude bra can just look much more classy and put together.
After much research I decided a 38F would be the right choice of sizing for this bra, that is a size down from what I measure at but I had read that Freya can come up slightly larger in cup sizes. Im glad I made the that calculated choice as it fits me perfectly, I hadn't had such a perfect fit for a while. I had been buying a lot of bras from Boux Avenue lately and the sizing would be perfect for the first couple of washes but after that the shape was lost, anyone more on that in the future.
The cup size is no less than perfect, no spillage or four boob as I normally call it, from the cup. The underwire does not fly out into my underarm, thank god nothing is more uncomfortable. No gaping which surprised me as I find it happens a lot with moulded cups.
The band size fits like a glove, feeling snug but not tight when fastened on the last hook, the centre panel rests on the sternum between both breasts with no room for even a finger, everything sits flush at the back with no back fat emphasising, ain't nobody got time for unwanted back fat.
I love the quality of the straps, they are thick enough to aid with support but thin enough to not ruin the look of the bra, any thicker and it may start to look a bit fugly.
The little bows just add a delicate feminine touch but keeping in with the simple design.
As I mentioned I have a slight 'thing' with having matching underwear on a daily basis so it will come as no shock I also own the Freya Deco Short Brief. Coming in four sizes, small, medium, large and extra large I decided to go for the large, guessing that for my size 16-18 lower half they would fit okay. They fit perfectly just like the bra. Shorts are my prefered style of knickers nine times out of ten, of course I have a few other styles just incase I fancy something different.
The style keeps in with the simplicity of the bra and also makes the appearance of VPL (visable panty line, incase you didn't know) pretty much non exsistent. I think the little bow and slight frill just add a girly touch to what would normally be a boring pair of pants.
I think its safe to say I have fallen head over heels with this set and am now a complete convert to the much talked about Freya Deco range, I will most definitley be looking into more colours for my next lingerie purchases. At around £30 for the bra and £10 for the briefs this for me is a reasonable price for high quality, well fitting underwear. Lingerie is something I have always had to spend a conciderable amount of money on due to my larger bust but definitley justified when it makes me feel and look amazing. I will be featuring these in the future in outfit posts to show you how they sit under clothes and the difference they have made to my shape.
