I have been coveting Elle Macpherson Intimates’ colourful boudoir inspired lingerie since they launched their D-G range, but hitherto haven’t been able to play with much success because they started at a 32 back.
Enthusiastic as I was though, I somehow missed the announcement that finally my ship had come. It’s finally happened – Elle Macpherson now stock 30 backs. Hurrah!
Or so I thought. I tried the basic Artistry bra (above – how beautiful is the blue?) – and though it’s beautiful – simple, elegant, vintage-y and sophisticated – it’s definitely not for me. The band is snug, which I like, and the cup technically fits perfectly. But somehow, it’s not a match. The wires come up far to high at the sides for my (pretty average) frame, and didn’t quite sit right in the middle either – the cups seemed slightly too far apart. For my shape at least, it was too wide a bra for my body. But for those trying to problem solve a long rib cage, or wide set boobs – it might just be the solution for you – would be really interesting to see who it works for. Even though it’s a bit ya-boo-sucks for me….
