I’d had the Lovehoney Flirty underwear set comprising of the teal underwired plunge bra and matching Flirty boyshorts on my wishlist. Then I was lucky enough to be treated to the set by a generous forum friend. It was a surprise Christmas gift.
The bra is not available in teal anymore, though it is available in 5 other colours; red, black, white orange and pink. It is available in sizes S/M (UK 8-10), M/L (UK 12-14), L/XL (UK 16-18) and XXL (UK 20-22), and costs £12.99. The bra comes packaged in a simple clear plastic sealed packet. It has a cardboard tag attached to the inner label. Off that went straight into the bin, then I had a good look at the bra. It appears well-constructed albeit it with one or two ‘loose thread’ ends. Nothing that would cause concern, just purely cosmetic imperfections. The teal colour is vibrant, and the lacy nylon / spandex material is attractive, having some ‘give’ to it.
How does it ‘hold up’?
I got the bra in the M/L size, and my bust is 38C. The strap that goes around under the bust was on its loosest setting. Initially the straps around the shoulders were adjusted so the ‘sliders’ were all the way to the rear. I found they were starting to dig in slightly, about halfway through the day. I then readjusted the sliders on the shoulder straps all the way forward towards the central rings. This then made it much more comfortable to wear for the rest of the day.
The under-wiring gives some support, but the nature of the bra having a ‘plunge’ shaping means that the padding sits under my nipples, leaving my upper areolas and nipples ‘exposed’ behind the see-through lace. The scalloped edging is flattering, though the bra does not provide full coverage over my bust, leaving about a third of it above the bra. This does not really pose an issue but I might be disinclined to wear the bra on occasions where I’d want more coverage.
Washing instructions state to wash the bra by hand, which I will do, to prevent the lace getting caught. Overall, this is a pretty and sexy bra that will catch your eye when you’re going through your underwear drawer deciding which one to wear!
The boy-shorts also come packaged in a similar way, and are priced at £7.99. The scalloped edging on the shorts matches the edging on the plunge bra nicely, and feels comfortable with no unsightly ‘visible panty lines.’ The shorts cover my generous rear end, without sliding down or giving the dreaded ‘wedgie’. If you want some flirty colour in your panty drawer, get some from Lovehoney! Available in black or red.
