Today’s post is going to be something of a first! When Gossard kindly sent me the Iris set to review, they also offered to send across the Desire collection, an absolutely beautiful style which has been on my mind ever since I saw it at Moda back in February. However, as the bra is not available in my size, Rachael and I decided that today, we would review the collection together.
A few months ago, I tried out and reviewed the BM Gwiezdny Pył by Ewa Michalak in a 70JJ. However, not long after I bought it, the BM Miętusek was released, and (surprise surprise) I fell in love all over again! Given that I found the Gwiezdny Pył still had a little room in the cups, and knowing that black colourways frequently run smaller than lighter colourways, I decided the try out the Miętusek in a 70J.
The pastel colours of the Miętusek are reminiscent of ice cream, macarons and candy floss. The mint colour is light and fresh, and the baby pink bow on the gore adds just the perfect touch! Since I wasn’t 100% sure that the bra was going to fit me, I decided not to order the matching briefs, so I’m wearing the bra here with a pair of F&F brazilian briefs (which I think match quite well!). Luckily for me, this size fits beautifully. Continue reading
Masquerade (also known as Harlequin) was the luxury brand of the Panache family, providing slightly more sultry, sexy and sophisticated options in sizes 28-38 D-H. Masquerade has since been rebranded as Panache Black and the available styles have been completely changed, but many of the older Masquerade styles are still floating around if you look for them. Obviously, with my usual Panache size of 30JJ, I’m a fair way out of Masquerade’s size range, but I had to know what I was missing out on. So, I decided to try out a couple of pieces in a 34H.
The first style I tried was the Masquerade Persia in Black, matched here with some high waisted briefs by Starline Lingerie. As the highest cup size available was an H, and Masquerade were often said to run firm in the band, I decided that a 34H (sister size to a 30J) might be my best shot for something wearable.

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.
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
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!
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
