The Emily BraJuly 22, 2011
A little while ago, I fell in love with the very beautiful Emily bra by Curvy Kate.
I’ve had the Emily in ‘Flame’ for a little while, and I am constantly trying to stop myself from wearing it everyday, so as not to wear it out too quickly!
It’s has beautiful lace floral detailing on the sheer top half of the cup, which turns into delicate little points along the edge of the bra. It’s these pretty little details that make a piece of underwear so special. The cups are also very supportive, and I could happily wear this day in day out, for any occasion.
I decided to get the matching briefs in a size 16, as most of the Curvy Kate shorts do come up a little small. They’re very comfortable, also with the same lovely detailing.
Recently I managed to get hold of the Emily in ‘Lavender Blue’. I was very excited about this, as it was one version I had struggled to find in my size. I was told about an online lingerie company called Celebrar who were having a half price sale with lots of available sizes (I thoroughly recommend having a browse).
Having purchased the ‘Flame’ in a 32G, I felt I could go still go a band size smaller, so I bought the ‘Lavender’ in 30GG. I find Curvy Kate unpadded bras very true to size, which is vastly different from their padded bras – keep that in mind if you do decide to buy one.
Currently, the Emily comes in Flame, Lavender/Blue, Aqua/Ivory, Black and White.
It has been in different colours in previous seasons, so you may find the odd one on ebay. I am really excited about the Emily ‘Grape’, which will be available this coming Autumn, and it will also be available in Nude. Keep an eye out next summer for the Coral/Blush version!
I leave for a much needed holiday on monday, so it may be a little while before I can post again. However, fear not, because I will have lots of bikini recommendations when I return (having tested out my recent purchases!)
