Wonderform Intimates Balconette Bra Review
“This bra was designed to be the perfect layering piece. How cute would this be under a white buttoned down and a pair of jeans?”
It looks like summer is finally here! And after the past few days of horrendous rain, what is a girl to do? I will cross my fingers tightly and hope the sunshine and warm weather is here to stay.
Seems a little silly, but I would venture to guess I’m not the only one partaking in this. Here we are, transitioning from one season to the next. This is a time filled with warmth, rays of sunshine (again, my fingers are crossed) and countless amounts of outdoor parties. I’ll be nosey and go ahead and ask if you’ve treated yourself to a new set of summer lingerie? I’m not referring to your basic sets (although, those are important too), but something that is fun and vibrant. A style you could show off by layering underneath your top. It is summer after all.
An Unforgettable Balconette Bra
If you haven’t found a set that has caught your eye yet, don’t sweat it. I’ll be happy share with you one of my latest obsessions – the Unforgettable Strappy Balconette bra and thong, in blue/black, by Wonderform Intimates. They were kind enough to let me try out one of their products to try and review. And let me start off by saying the “unforgettable” title is entirely accurate because once you put it on, you won’t want to take it off. What’s more, it totals out to less than $50 (you just can’t beat it). I am wearing a 32D bra size and medium panties.
Comfort, Style, and Coverage
“This bra was designed to be the perfect layering piece.”
Personally, I am all about my lingerie pieces having a multi-purpose. What is the point of spending time and money picking out an item you only wear once? Ladies, It’s so important to find pieces that are comfortable, pretty, and highlight your best assets. Something that you won’t dread wearing all day at work and then well into the night for drinks with co-workers. And this piece is perfect for providing the comfort and coverage by day, with the splash of fashion by night.
This bra was designed to be the perfect layering piece. It features cute strappy details paired with a blue lush lace. How cute would this be under a white buttoned down and a pair of jeans? You can even open up a button, or two, to show off the style a little bit. Or would that push the limits a touch too far? Hey, whatever works for you.
Balconette bras are widely known to have shorter cups, which ultimately leads to less coverage. They round out the breast, and push them up ever so slightly to create a little bit of cleavage. And yes, this bra will give you just that. Do not become discouraged by the term “shorter cups,” they completely covered my nipples with no issues.
If you were to take a look at the inside of the cup, you’d notice there are multiple seams. This is what the industry would define as a cut-and-sew bra. That means various pieces of fabric were used to create one full cup. It’s intended to help conform to the shape of your breasts, in this case giving you a little extra cleavage. Typically, it represents a higher quality bra.
Let’s get into the band, which is a highly important feature as a majority of the support is placed here. This particular band is built to last, combined with the double layer of mesh and slightly snug fit. Remember, the garment will stretch over time due to wash and wear so it’s better to get an option that is a little tighter from the beginning.
The matching thong is also cut from the same durable mesh as the band. Except it is constructed with a single layer. It does stretch a bit but fits me better as a low-rise piece. I think a large would have been a better option, to lie nicely over my hips. However, this is a personal struggle, and my panty size literally varies from one brand to the next.
This set is also available in a white option, which can be beautiful for a bridal moment, or for a brighter alternative to the blue and black. Either color, you won’t regret treating yourself to this lovely and unforgettable style.
