The Yellow BraMarch 18, 2012
As I walked out of my front door last week, I realised that Spring had finally arrived. There were beautiful yellow daffodils everywhere, and it made me think about the colour yellow.
A friend of mine who has something called Synesthesia – which for him means he sees words as colours – told me that my name ‘Sophia’ is yellow, so when he looks at me, that’s what he sees.
I like yellow very much, it’s happy and cheerful, but I never really wear it, mainly because it doesn’t often go with my pale skin.
However, when I discovered that Panache were making one of my favourite bras – the Cleo Lucy – in a canary yellow in addition to their girly pink, I just had to test it out.
This is the first yellow bra I have ever owned, and I’m smitten. It’s also a bright bold yellow rather than pale, which means it doesn’t look quite as ghastly on my skin tone as I had expected. Win!
I actually bought this in a 32G even though I have the pink version in a 30GG, but this is purely because my size has fluctuated a little lately. I found the band perfect in the 32, which is my current ‘usual’ size. The fit is of course, just the same as the pink version; it gives a really great rounded uplifted shape, with fully adjustable straps too.
I really love the stitching and detailing, it really makes it special. I’ve come to the conclusion that you shouldn’t always avoid a certain colour; you never know when a good shade of it can sneak up on you.
A perfect summer bra. I’m hoping to test out some more summer colours soon!
