I have wanted to try out Flirtelle for awhile, I own one “desperate” purchase bra by them which I’d bought in a panic for a wedding in 2015 but never revisited so when I saw the Lula wine padded bra was on sale at £16 I decided to give it a go, unusually for me I purchased the set. I’m normally a huge black cotton brief gal but these briefs tempted me in!
First impressions where “Wow!” Because the colour is so rich and I actually don’t own a red bra and I kind of think everybody should treat themselves to red underwear occasionally as there’s just something confidence boosting to It… now, onto the fit.
I bought a 34J because the panic buy Flirtelle bra I had was a 34HH and I have a bit of spillage in it, I’m glad I did as it fitted my bigger side really well (always expect it to be roomy on one side) The band is really firm but still comfortable and I was definitely right in a 34. The cups are lightly padded but not bulky and give a nice rounded shape as a result. The Geo print is really appealing to me as I’m a bit Geo crazy just now and I like the touches of gold detail in the bows too. I ordered a size 20 in the briefs, my dress size is between a 16/18 but I always size up in briefs especially as I hate anything sitting directly on my csection scar, I like briefs to be up and over the pouch (oh the glamour!) The briefs fit perfectly, good stretch, sheer back and nice wide sides so they don’t dig into my fleshy hips.
Overall I’m very comfy in the Lula and love the cleavage it gives. It lacks a bit of support but I expect that in a padded plunge and I still feel secure and don’t fall out of it… Will just possibly avoid trampolines! Definitely a brand I’ll be trying again.
