I really adored this set. The striking v-neckline, the ruching under the bust and the long length of the top had me at hello! In this photo I’m wearing a size 24 as they were out of stock in my size but I got them to send me it anyway as I wanted to try it on, check out the fabric and you know what, even though it was looser than I preferred, it still knocked my socks off. I liked that the cut as flattering, that the fabric felt luxurious and the front had reinforced panelling. It does come with little soft thin breast inserts which sit within the lining to assist with lift and nipple situations but I took them out as I’m happy with the way my breasts naturally sit and a firm believer that nipples are perfectly normal chest accessories.
The briefs were awesome, I liked that they’re a wide cut, see how they cover they comfortably cover the width of my bum without creeping up my crack. They also were mid rise (also with the reinforced panel) which kept my tummy comfortable yet held in. This meant that I wasn’t constantly pulling my bottoms up over my belly and my top down over my belly. The top also has ruching across the stomach which fools the eyes of on-lookers that your roll is actually just how the fabric folds… sneaky swimsuit!
I was apprehensive about trying this one on as it looked much smaller than all the other garments I’d been sent and it was. This was a size 22 and I felt like I should have ordered a size up. The shorts felt really good at the back but were unforgiving at the front, constantly rolling up my thighs as they sat quite high. The top also rolled up as it was quite short on my body. I think for someone who had a small hip/thigh size or was even just shorter in general it would look amazing on. The fabric didn’t feel as lovely and soft as the first two I’ve shown you, just felt like the everyday kind od swimwear fabric. I do like the straps and the way the top sits at the back. The built in shelf bra was pretty supportive, I was quite surprised by that actually! At the end of the day it just made me fidget too much so I wasn’t comfortable. The quality of the singlet set was great and I can imagine this being a summer staple for many women.
I’ll be completely honest, if they manufactured this piece in all black instead of the flower print I’d buy it in an instant. I love the silver chain detailing on the straps, the shape of the neckline and how high it rises up the back, it made my boobs feel really supported. This has an inbuilt shelf bra too and I found this one gave some lift yet also managed to minimise them at the same time. This one gave me the perfect shape and coverage on the hips and bum too. Tummy isn’t forgotten either with reinforced paneling on the front. Don’t get me wrong, the flower print is lovely but it’s just not me, personally I’d prefer a bright block colour like Ruby or Cyan.
