If you told me two year ago that one day I would be a lingerie lover I wouldn't have believed you. I hadn't had my measurements taken since I was a teen and I was wearing completely the wrong size bra. I had this crazy notion that my boobs were really small and so plus I couldn't find bras with a back size to match the much too small cup size I thought I needed, so getting a bra and briefs set in my size seemed like an impossible task.

Although it's only been two years since the magical day I got properly measured and my undies life changed forever I've learned an awful lot about what for me makes a comfy lingerie set and let me tell you, the Amelia Bandless Moulded Bra & Briefs Set* by Elomi ticks all of my boxes!

Let's start with the bra. The first thing to note is that it's bandless which means that there is no solid band of fabric/lace underneath the cups as you would usually find. I think this is the perfect style for girls like me whose torso is chubby as it fits to the line of your underbust rather than trying to create a solid fit around your underboobs, so it's much less restrictive and you especially note the extra comfort when you sit as there is no digging in. 

Secondly, the cups are moulded and seemless which gives a lovely smooth rounded shape without being padded - great for girls who really don't need any help when it comes to boob size which I know if a frustration for many busty plus babes. The fabric the cups are made from is pretty magical too - if you get one hold it up to the light and you'll see that it's different. It's made from what is called a 'spacer fabric' which traps a layer of air between the fabric and your skin making it cool and comfy and also helping with that nice smooth silhouette.

Now on to the briefs which are a lovely mid waisted style made from a stretchy yet supportive fabric with the addition of lovely stretch lace. These babies are supportive but super comfortable, not like shapewear really but there is no doubt that they have those magical smoothing properties too. I got them in a size 4X which is meant to fit a 22 but they perfectly fit my size 24/26 bottom too which is great!

The overall styling of the set is beautiful. I'm wearing the black variation here but it is also available in Nude and Ink which is a lovely shade of navy blue. The stretch lace is gorgeous and super soft so it doesn't irritate the skin at all like a cheap lace can and the way it has been used to detail the sides of the bra and the briefs is clever and classy, especially the lovely little cut out on the briefs. I really can't recommend this lovely set enough.
