Being a J Cup I’m always on the look out for brands that cater for my size that I may not yet have tried so when the super lovely people at UK Lingerie offered me a chance to try out a PrimaDonna Deauville I was very excited. After a really helpful chat with them I decided to go for a 36J (rather than 34) and my usual size 20 briefs and we chose the “natural” colour as a classic essential.
The set is a little more expensive than my usual lingerie but the quality is quickly apparent. The fabric is so soft and silky and everything is finished to the highest standard. The colour ‘natural’ sounds a bit unexciting but it’s actually a gorgeous rich creamy tone that just makes me feel instantly sophisticated – no easy task!
As I say I ordered a 36J and I’m glad I did as I think the 34J would have been too small all over. The band is a dream and the cups fitted beautifully, my only issue was the centre gore didn’t quite sit flat to my chest but I’m ridiculously full centred so it tends to be an issue fairly often for me, it definitely wouldn’t be issue for the majority and despite it not snuggling in there, I actually still found it very comfortable to wear.
The cups do run deep and I had absolutely no issue with overspill thanks to the stretchy lace top. The 4 sections of the cup, especially the presence of my favoured side panel, meant I felt very supported and lifted (Husband did his test and agreed they felt very firm…) and I knew it was a good bra when I left it on till gone 10pm!
The briefs are my ideal kind; big, stretchy and super comfy with wide sides, fab tummy panel and lots of bum coverage. I know I mention comfort a lot but honestly at 34 and after having 3 children, it really is an essential of mine! The reason I really loved this set was because it is a proper ‘box-ticker’ for me;
- Looks beautiful
- Feels amazing
If you fancy giving this set a try I recommend going for your usual size unless, like me, you are very full centred, in which case I would go up as I did.
