Indulgent Lingerie | Gossard VIP ‘Phoebe’
It’s a fact: lingerie makes us feel great! Whether its wearing a cute pair of boy pants or a cleavage boosting bra that gives us that feel good factor, underwear is a simple and discreet way to boost confidence, self assure and feel amazing.
We generally associate indulgent lingerie with a special event; a wedding, the wedding night, a sexy weekend away or naughty night in, but luxury needn’t be confined to the incidental love affair. Whoever said amazing lingerie should only be worn occasionally, and why should it not be appreciated any day of the week, just for self satisfaction’s sake?!
Gossard VIP is everything Gossard – flirtatious, form boosting, and on trend – but with an extra touch of glamour. With hugely popular Retrolution already in the VIP range and some truly divine collections to come in the AW14 season, Phoebe is this summer’s starlet.
“A bounty of layered frill and lace”
Pale pink Phoebe is a feminine treat with its luxe metallic embroidery, lace, sheer mesh and tulle. Available in a D-G, the unpadded balcony bra offers substantial coverage and support lent by the side cup supports. The short features the matching beautiful embroidery design but with a stretchy plain mesh reverse, and the suspender belt – a bounty of layered frill and lace – makes the finishing touch, with four straps and clips to attach your favourite stockings.
Gossard sent me the full set to review which I was truly thrilled about. I adore tulle, whether it’s a skirted thong or frothy petticoat, so to try Phoebe was a delight. I received the bra in a 30G and the short and suspender belt both in a Small.
The bra is beautiful and feels gorgeous to the touch. The lace of the cups is very light and breathable, and the mesh side supports are soft. The cups follow my contours fit seamlessly. Comparing against other Gossards in the same size I am inclined to say the band is slightly more snug and so I’d suggest trying a band size up.
The small suspender belt and short are possibly on the too small side for me but that’s only because I prefer a medium for a less firm fit. The shorts are still super comfy though – I love how they’re fully detailed but comfy on the bum! The suspender belt feels like a mini tutu and it feels so cute to wear in accompaniment. I wore some stockings with the set to complete the look and it does look pretty amazing. The shimmery lace is so different and mesmerising; definitely a little luxury for indulgent ‘me time’.
