This review doesn’t even have my pictures of the garment because it’s only a quick lingerie review. I usually dedicate longer reviews to pieces that I have actually had in my possession for enough time to get a sense of it, but I had to review this Jenna Leigh set because the fit was quite off and I thought I should share that.

I ordered the Malawi set from Gilt a few weeks ago and I just received my package. I will say that the lace and silk were lovely– but then I tried it on. The bra was definitely too small (despite being a 34B) and did something that I have never actually experienced before but is well known by those of you with larger busts: the lace above the bust point was tight, creating an unflattering indent, what I sometimes call “double-boob”. This is especially odd for me because I usually run on the smaller side of 34B, fitting into 34A some of the time– also I am not particularly full on top, so even when I wear bras that are too small, the issues are usually with too little room at the sides. Anyways, this was very annoying and meant there was no way that I could wear this bra. As an added bonus, the panties (I got a size M) were also quite small and I definitely would have preferred a large.

Happily, Gilt Support let me return the set and I feel much happier. I can’t say for sure whether the size would work for an A-cup, so I definitely recommend trying Jenna Leigh before buying. The funny thing is, I actually had tried a Jenna Leigh bra before, which is why I felt confident ordering this– it appears that she does not have consistent sizing among different styles, however.

  1. That is why I always try before I buy. I have had few mail order bras not fit right. The differences in bras label size and actual size can vary a lot, even from the same company.
