I was kindly gifted the Pour Moi Opulence set from Belle Lingerie and even though I know that Pour Moi as a brand don’t fit me the best, I was so taken with the aesthetic that I was keen to try it out.
There are several pieces in this range. I went for the Underwired bra and shorts in 38HH and size 20. I will note that my size has changed recently and I am back at a 34/36 band so this will be reflected in my fit commentary.
About the fit
When I ordered this set I was experiencing pain & bloating from my medical conditions so I opted for a 38HH however due to some lifestyle changes the bloating stopped and my weight dropped a little so I had to fasten Opulence on the tightest hooks. That being said I would say the band on this bra is true to size and if you are between sizes go for the lower one. The largest size available in the shorts is a 20 so I chose that which is my usual brief size. The bra is available to a J cup though so that is a bonus.
As expected, the centre gore did not sit flush to my chest. This is always the case for me with Pour Moi as I have very full centred breasts and need quite deep cups. The support was surprisingly good and I felt there was decent lift and shape. I had no bulging at the top, which is always a surprise with top heavy boobs! If I’m honest though, with this set, it was all about the looks for me.
I do wish the briefs were available in larger sizes but this is always the case. They fit me absolutely fine, slightly generous in the hips but a lovely cut.
About the Style
Opulence really caught my eye when I saw it. I loved the black lace over the dusky pink base. It had a really decadent and vintage vibe which is very me. There are quite a few pieces available in the range (size availability does vary though) I would have really liked to try the basque but sadly that was not an option in my size. For me, this set is all about subtle seduction, with delicate lace and soft colour.
I did order myself the suspender belt to complete my “seductive” look but this topped out at a size 18 and unfortunately didn’t quite fit my hips which is disappointing. I would like to see more consistency with sizes available, plus girls like sexy pieces too!
I would recommend this range especially if you have slightly more shallow breasts. I am discovering more of a love of lingerie rather than focusing on the fit. I think we can get a bit too serious about everything having to be perfect. Fit is important for day to day life but Lingerie is fun, if you feel good in something then wear it!
