Curvy Kate Lingerie From Simply BeTuesday, February 21, 2017
I have always had what you could call a large chest or big boobs, however you want to put it, that coupled with being plus size has always made finding underwear difficult. Finding everyday plain t shirt type bras and plain briefs is difficult enough but trying to find pretty lingerie sets I have found to be a real nightmare.
I was recently asked if I would like to choose some lingerie from Simply Be, I have tried clothes from Simply Be and they have always been great but for some reason, I haven't ever purchased any underwear. Simply Be have an amazing range of underwear, I was completely blown away, they have their own brand and also brands such as Figleaves, Freya, Curvy kate, Berlei, Panache and many more, I was honestly spoilt for choice and couldn't believe the range I had to choose from.
The Simply Be website is easy to use and has different categories down the left hand side of the page such as brands, cup size, size, cup type, back size, price range and also which item of lingerie you would like, it is so easy. I simply put in my bra size when I was searching for a bra and bottoms size when looking for briefs. I was absolutely amazed when I put my bra size in and I had a choice of 484 bras to choose from, I couldn't believe it, I am used to having less than 10 items to choose from when searching high street websites. There were so many lovely bras to choose from including plain t shirt type bras and absolutely stunningly pretty bras, I couldn't believe I had such an amazing choice.
After searching through all the bras on offer, I put my favourites in the basket and added matching briefs and then narrowed it down, one set that had caught my eye from when I first started looking was the Curvy Kate Princess Flamingo Bra and Briefs, I kept going back to it and when it came to choosing my favourite set, this was the standout for me.
The Curvy Kate set is stunning and perfect for me, it is a stunning bright coral shade with fuchsia pink ribbon detail. It has a semi sheer fabric with soft raised polka dots and lace detail, the bra comes with adjustable straps. I love anything coral or pink and this set is beautiful, it is more of a fluorescent coral and is very bright, it is stunning and perfect for the spring and summer.
Curvy Kate bras come in sizes from a D cup to a K cup and briefs come in sizes 12 to 24, the Princess range I chose is also available in White, Nude and Black if the Flamingo colour isn't your thing.
The detailing on the bra and briefs is stunning, the soft polka dots and the lace detail are lovely, the floral lace is so pretty and feminine and the fuchsia ribbon compliments the coral perfectly. The bra is a non padded balcony style and fits me perfectly giving a good support and shape, it has a 2 hook, 3 column fastening. The briefs are a different style to what I would usually choose, I usually opt for a shorts style brief, these are a Brazilian style but are very comfortable to wear and have a seamless edge meaning they aren't visible under my clothing.
Both the bra and the briefs are very comfortable to wear and the bra gives me a lovely shape that looks nice under my clothing. I have always saved pretty underwear sets for a special occasion and worn them if we have been going out for a meal or another occasion but I decided that I shouldn't save this set, it is too pretty to save and not wear very often, so I have worn it on a day to day basis. Wearing pretty underwear does make me feel nice and this is such a pretty set, yes there is only me (and Simon when he is helping me to get sorted out) who sees it, but it isn't about who sees it, it is about feeling nice and this set makes me feel nice and I will definitely be ordering more lingerie from Simply Be.
One thing I really liked is that on the bra there is a label about checking boobs, this is such an important message and I was really pleased to see it.
I am so pleased with my lingerie set and so impressed with Simply Be, I could have picked out numerous sets of pretty lingerie from the Simply Be website, and also numerous every day t shirt bras and every day briefs too, they have an absolutely incredible choice on their website. Bra sizes range from an A cup to a L cup with back sizes ranging from a 28 to a 56 and brief sizes range from a size 8 to a size 38, catering for so many different sizes, this is the most varied range of sizes I have ever seen for lingerie and I wish I'd checked out Simply Be sooner when looking for underwear, I will definitely be ordering some more lingerie from Simply Be, there are so many pretty sets I like and as I said, I don't usually wear pretty sets every day but now I have a huge range to choose from with Simply Be, I think I might just start to, with such an amazing range to choose from, why not?
I unfortunately don't have the confidence to share a photograph of myself wearing the lingerie so I will share with you a photograph of the model wearing the set I chose so you can see how it looks on.
