Winter is over. Or at least, the bleak, cold months without getting my hands on any new lingerie are. Freya’s newest Deco inspired molded plunge bra – the Ashlee in sorbet – landed on my desk this morning, and its coconut ice pink (more vivid in real life) is the perfect antidote to a month of sub-zero temperatures and thermal undercrackers.
I’m a big Deco fan, not least because I live in Amsterdam and the way it lifts the boobs is fantastic for defending G-Unit from the anything a bumpy bicycle ride can throw at them (see this post for more on protecting your delicate bits from your two-wheeled adventuring). And Ashlee fits very similarly to other twists of the Deco – it’s certainly comparable to the Taylor. It fits beautifully in the cup and and the deep plunge gives a great shape, though as with the Taylor some women – especially inbetweenies – may prefer to size down in the back and size up in the cup to get the most wear out of their style.
With that in mind, it is disappointing that once again this style is not available in a GG for 28 backs, but I believe the much coveted bigger cupped Decos could be in the pipeline so perhaps there’s good news for GG+ sizes to come. In the meantime it comes in the standard Deco sizing – 28D-F, 30D-GG, 32-36 B-GG, and 38 B-G – and with the option to partner it with some cracking high waisted pants too… Yum.
What style is brightening up your February?
