I adore pretty underwear, I remember my mum always insisting on matching sets and now I do the same to my daughter and she teases me for it! I am a matching set type of girl, never to be found without, well you never know who might see you!? So it was lovely to be given the opportunity to review a set from Playtex (gfited), all I remember about them was the 'cross your heart' bra campaign way back when. So I was really interested to see how they have updated their look and products.
I chose the Playtex Flower Lace Full Cup Wired Bra and matching Briefs in the Cinnamon colour - which is pretty close to the Pantone's Colour of the Year - Living Coral - and one of my favourite shades for Spring/Summer.
This set is so pretty with a full lace cup and no additional padding, I love the slightly wider strap at the top of the cup and the style is very elegant with a romantic vibe.
The briefs are a midi style with lace at the top and a flattering slightly higher leg, they are very comfortable, although I usually choose a more mini brief style I do really like these ones. Comfort is my number one priority - but I also like something pretty and just the right cut so they work with my curvier shape.
These items are stocked at both J D Williams and Simply Be (who have the three pack plain matching pants or the lace style I have will be available soon direct from Playtex. And don't forget Valentine's Day is coming soon!
As I was finishing this blog post so the snow was coming down and now it is really heavy and very white outside! Roll on Spring! We have been so lucky with the milder weather but I suspect the worst bit is still to come.
Disclaimer: these items were gifted to me, I was asked to try them out and review them on my blog.. All opinions and words are my own.
