It's no secret that I LOVE a lingerie bargain. It's also no secret that I have a real soft spot for Curvy Kate as they were the ones that changed my life a few years ago by measuring me and giving me the revelation that I'd been wearing completely the wrong bra size for years upon years, hence opening up to me a whole new world of gorgeous lingerie! Obviously then when those two loves combine - bargains and Curvy Kate, I get very very happy.
I always buy my lingerie online and so I'm always on the hunt for great places that I can get high quality bras in larger sizes that don't cost the earth. One of my favourite such places is BraStop who very kindly sent me a lovely CK set to try!
BraStop are one of my favourite sites as they have such a large range of brands and sizes and their prices are awesome. They also have lots of sales throughout the year which I always keep my eye out for so I can stop up my lingerie draw without making my bank account cry. They also have an awesome fitting guide section on their website plus a blog that features interesting pieces on things such as sister sizing!
So, the CK set that I tried is the Atomic Plunge Bra in Melon (£18.95*) and the matching Shorts (£7.95*). As this is a pretty sheer set I've had to add modesty spangles but you can still see the gorgeous coral and fuschia colour and the dreamy patterned lace with super sweet matching bows. Apologies that I'm not showing the shorts but I just couldn't get a good photo of them on that didn't show far too much as they too are sheer!
As usual the fit was perfection and it gave such a nice shape to my breasts. The band size was spot o and really comfortable and the straps nice and wide so they didn't hurt or run at all. The only gripe I have is the the wires on this style CK bra in my opinion need to be a little longer and go further up the side of your breast, as this one poked me in the side boob when I sat down. I think this would only be an issue for people with excess fat around this area but even so, a longer wire would be a dream.
