Crystal Gems Lingerie

I’ve recently been watching a lot of Steven Universe, and a dear friend and I got to discussing the Crystal Gems’ individual styles. I thought it could be fun to put together some sets of lingerie inspired by the Crystal Gems, and as my friend (Lorna) is an illustrator, she thought it would be fun to do her own lingerie designs and illustrate the Crystal Gems in them. So, we decided to collaborate!

Let’s start with Pearl! Pearl’s style is elegant, floaty and ballerina-esque, using shades of duck egg blue, peachy pink, apple green and sunny yellow.

Perfection in Panache Floris

The Panache Floris was introduced a few seasons ago, and while I own many colourways and would describe it as one of my favourite bras, I haven’t yet gotten round to reviewing it! However, the Floris has been released for this season in an absolutely breathtaking Aurora colourway, and when Panache asked if there was anything I’d like to review from them, I knew exactly what it would have to be.

Panache Floris in Aurora - 30JJ, 14

I would consider my usual size to be a 30K (70K in Ewa Michalak, 30JJ/32J in padded Curvy Kate), but I usually take a 30JJ in Panache, so this is a 30JJ with size 14 briefs. Continue reading

Review of the Coquette Powernet Bustier (14-16)

Today’s review is going to be something a little different! I was recently contacted by Sexcite, a newly established online adult retailer, asking if I would be interested in reviewing something from their lingerie department. At first I was skeptical – sexy lingerie is often not to my tastes, and finding something that fits my 30K bust well can be a real challenge. However, looking through their collections, I was pleasantly surprised to find that there was a wide range of pieces, with quite a few that really appealed to me!

Coquette Powernet Bustier Black 14-16

After some umming and ahhing, I eventually settled on the Coquette Powernet Bustier. I hadn’t tried anything from Coquette Lingerie before, but a quick google search suggested that this style was generous in the bust, and I was pleased to find that this was the case! Continue reading
