I was sent this product free of charge for the purpose of this review. All words and opinions are my own.
I was over the moon to be sent an absolutely gorgeous lingerie set from My Curves and Me.
I was sent the Fern Balconnet in black and floral and matching underwear. I seriously could not be happier with this product.
The lingerie is a beautiful design, floral set against a sheer black. It is pretty, sexy, and just amazingly supportive where you need it most. Like a lot of mothers, my body has changed since giving birth. I confess that I have not really adjusted my underwear to my new body shape. I am curvy. I never really see myself as this. I am not the woman wearing a triangle bikini - I do need that extra support, and this underwear set has made me realise that some extra support can make you feel prettier, and, dare I say it...sexier.
* 3 part seamed, unlined, unpadded, underwired balconnet
* Fully adjustable
* 3 column, 2 row hook and eye back closure
* Stretch microfibre
The briefs are the same floral design with full coverage to the front and sheer panels, which adds a bit of oo-er to your underwear.
The main advantage I found to this set was the support that it offers. The band is quite wide and offers maximum support without pinching or squeezing. I was really surprised that a bra with zero padding could have so much support. For years I have bought padded bras thinking that they would offer more support, as it just feels like there is more 'there' - I realise how mistaken I have been. It seems that underneath all this padding I have been hiding my real shape - and this bra just brings out that shape.
I'll be honest, after trying this, which is an absolute bargain in the sale at £14.50, I won't be buying cheap padded bras that offer an amazing shape...something that I actually already have without the added bumpf!
