This basque from Pour Moi? is gorgeous. I am always a fan of lace-ups, and the black satin lace up feature at the back really makes this piece. It does up with a 12 hook fastening which can be fiddly – the lace-up is purely for show – but totally worth the effort and you’ll not be in a hurry to remove it!

Designed with lightly padded half cups that are partially sheer, it is embroidered with a floral pattern and comes with detachable suspenders. It’s rather short in length but stops at a nice spot on the stomach, with the lace-up at the back being able to be adjusted if you want it be more form-fitting or loose.

While I’m normally a fan of cleavagey styles that really push the girls up and in, the cups on this style have the breasts sit in a more natural position, as you can see from the above photo. I bought the 8F and find that it can cut in a little where the sheer material begins, so could have gone up a cup size. It’s not quite as va-va-voom as I’d like in terms of cleavage and a side profile, but the gorgeous style and pattern is enough to make me forgive that.

The matching underwear is also lovely – a very flattering G-string with a plain black back and matching silver floral pattern on the front with lace-up details on either sides of the hips.

The Pour Moi? Provence basque can be found online through select sites including Ebay, although you’ll need to go searching as it’s sold out in most places!

Kleemeier Lace Torsolette 30F

Review: Kleemeier Lace Torsolette 30F

Kleemeier Lace Torsolette 30F

I went for a visit to my favourite lingerie store Silk Elegance to try and find something white for a group photoshoot that I was doing and came across an absolute gem. Imported from Germany, this torsolette is of the highest quality soft lace and satin and has a plunging neckline and moulded cups that give really nice shape, uplift and cleavage.

The straps are fully adjustable and removable, so it could be worn strapless, but I don’t think I’d feel supported enough in it as the cups are quite shallow. The suspender straps are also detachable.

The sheer panels of lace and boning create a flattering shape and although I did have misgivings about it being too loose as it was a 30F rather than a 28, it’s super clingy and tight without being uncomfortable and I can wear it on either of the 2 hook and eye fastenings and be comfy. The cup runs true to size, although it would be a very snug fit for a size 8 body as it is made for, given I usually wear a 28 and it was very form-fitting on me.

I didn’t buy the matching underwear as the G was high-cut, the boylegs made me look a bit frumpy (too much coverage) and they didn’t have the brief. I did however find a pair for the shoot (pictured below) from an entirely different brand that worked perfectly!

The price tag – $190 – did have me umming and ahhing for a good 10 minutes or so, but I guess for a bridal set you would be willing to pay top dollar to have gorgeous lingerie for your big day. It is such good quality that as soon as I put it on and saw how beautifully it fit, I was in love! It’s a definite sexy and classy winning piece. Check it out here. You can shop the Kleemeier brand – if you speak German! – here.

Pleasure State Penelope Jane

Pleasure State Penelope Jane Control Balconette Bra 30F Review

30F, Black, Bra, Lingerie, Pleasure State

Worth every cent! This bra is that winning combination of sexy, comfy and supportive.

The Penelope Jane is all over black satin with a floral crystal lace overlay on the cups that gives it a very pretty shine. It also has the signature Pleasure State crystal buckles and a few other bits of sparkle that catch the eye.

The bra provides more cleavage than I expected after looking at photos of the set (compare the difference of the fit on me to the model pictured here). My only issue though is that the gore comes up a bit high and wide on me so doesn’t provide the perfect separation and shape. This could be due to the fact that it’s a 30 back, whereas I should be in a 28. The cup size (F) is a good fit for me, though. It looks good under a tight shirt and gives great shape, uplift and support – in part due to the firmness of the band and it also has wide wings.

You can buy the Penelope Jane set here. It also comes in a pastel blue colour, and white with salmon coloured lace inserts.
