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!
