Lingerie Review: Mimi Holliday Frappe Bra and Boyshort
Mimi Holliday has been a brand I have really wanted to try for at least a year because I love the sophisticated girliness of their designs and their cup styles have always seemed absolutely perfect for a small-busted girl such as myself. Plus, I adore their combinations of satin and eyelash lace. Unfortunately, I had tried on a Mimi Holliday bra at Journelle a month or so ago and it didn’t fit right at all, which made me afraid that these gorgeous bras were never going to work for me (a terrible lingerie fear!). However, when I saw this Frappe Plunge Push-up style in a flash sale on MyHabit, I let my risk-taking spirit take the better of me and ordered it anyway. And I am so glad that I did.
Honestly, I’m not sure I have ever worn a bra that fit me so perfectly as this one. It is absolutely gorgeous. I should point out that I got a 34B, not my usual 34A after reading that their cup sizes run small and that was definitely a good idea. Another thing to keep in mind is that the briefs run very small– I bought these in a size L and they fit perfectly although I am usually a S/M. The reason for this can be explained in the fact that the waistband is the only stretchy portion of these panties; the lace has no stretch at all and wearing too-small underwear with zero stretch is not even possible, let alone comfortable.
All that being said, I found these panties incredibly flattering. A key detail that I definitely wanted to photograph is the adorable tiny bow above this peekaboo hole in the boyshort. I have to say, my feelings on my butt have always been rather agnostic– but after wearing these panties I was firmly assured that it is pretty darn cute.
In these photos, the color seems almost to glow– it’s not really that vibrant to the naked eye, but for some reason the combination of morning sunlight and bright pink satin make the images almost psychedelic. Well, I hope you’re not to upset about the inaccuracy as that’s not an entirely incorrect assessment of how this lingerie actually makes me feel .
Do any of you guys have any Mimi Holliday? How have you liked it?
