I have always been a huge fan of Gossard lingerie; it is often my payday treat to myself! I usually buy the satin patterned designs so I was excited to try the Glossies and Luxury Lace range.
Let’s start with the Glossies. Before I even tried it on, I loved the design, especially the colour of the set. The shade of Coral is a perfect pop of brightness and the sheerness adds a touch of luxury, creating a slight shimmer.
The design is very simple with no padding and a simple underwire design, however the detail such as lace on the back fastening, edging on the straps and the signature Gossard gold plate stop it feeling like an ordinary, everyday basic bra.
This is the unique kind of underwear that delivers on the comfort front, but still makes you feel sexy. For me this was perfect weekend underwear for a chilled day out when you want to look good but feel relaxed. I usually always wear a padded bra, but really liked the natural feel this bra gave you. In the words of Gossard it is ‘more about you, less about the bra’ and I absolutely agree with this.
This lingerie set wouldn’t be suitable for everyone or all occasions. Ladies with a bigger bust might feel the level of support isn’t adequate for them. With the bra being so sheer there is also no protection from the elements – if you are cold everyone will know about it, so it’s perhaps not a ‘work’ bra.
I went for a 34C and a small thong. I’m often in between sizes with Gossard bras, and have found before that the 32 measurement comes up smaller on some styles than others, so I opted for the bigger back size. As with any bra it is if course important to buy your correct size, with this bra particularly if it was too big the cup material would wrinkle, you do need to be able to completely fill the cup. I find the thongs to be generously sized, and the small fitted me well. I wear a 8-10 but the small would still fit a standard size 10.
This lingerie set has quickly become a firm favourite for my weekends and I’m definitely considering the aqua shade!
In comparison to the fun, laidback style of the Glossies set, the Luxury Lace lingerie is seductive, glamourous and sophisticated. The black lace over a champagne base is timeless, think classic sexiness rather than anything too explicit. This is a beautiful underwear set, the lace overlay looks expensive and the bow on both the bra and brief shorts is a lovely finishing touch.
I was very impressed by the cleavage the bra gave me, the padding certainly gave me a boost! I did find this bra came up quite big, so again be conservative with your sizing. I chose the shorts though there is also a Brazilian style. As with the bra the shorts do seem quite big, but are a good fit when on, a small would fit a size 10 or under easily. This range also comes in aqua, and though it is the same style, the colour changes the dynamic entirely. Think black for sensual nights and aqua for flirty days!
This is special occasion lingerie for me, the kind I would wear for myself when I wanted to feel stylishly sexy and glamourous. It is a confidence (and cleavage!) boost in the guise of lingerie!
