*The product featured was sent to me to review by Love Honey
When I started my blog I was adamant I would be very serious about bra fitting. That I would only discuss how a bra should fit and I would not review “fashion” styles or dress size pieces. This meant I started to lose the joy and fun that lingerie can actually bring; enter Love Honey to shake things up!
So what did I think?
I avoided buying lingerie from shops such as Love Honey. Being a size 20ish woman with 38HH boobs I figured I would always be left disappointed. Then I noticed some of my favourite plus size bloggers wearing the most striking pieces from this brand, I was intrigued and excited. Could I fit into this stuff? Could I push my bra fitter thoughts aside and just wear something purely because I love it? Well Love Honey very kindly gifted me two pieces so I could find out…
The first piece was the Belle Amour Body I ordered a 3XL/4XL because I was mainly thinking of boob room. The body is crotchless which is, ermm handy, and has strap detailing across the bust. It also has removable suspenders so you have the option of wearing stockings. The bodysuit is very generously sized, if my boobs we’re smaller there’s no doubt the 1XL would have fit with ease. The bra section is wired and has 3 hook fastening plus adjustable straps so you can actually get a decent support from it. I know there’s often a feeling that this type of lingerie will be scratchy and cheap but this piece is made of a lovely soft, smooth microfibre with lace panels… Not an itch in sight!
I’m not going to pretend it fits my bust, it doesn’t and I don’t need it to. I’m not going to wear Belle Amour round Tesco or on the school run. The range is unapologetically sexy and designed exclusively to showcase curves and it does just that. It is a bedroom piece and it did exactly what it sets out to do when I put it on.
I am so pleased I took a chance on Love Honey, it definitely (re)ignited the fun side of lingerie for me. I find sometimes there can be such a serious almost bullish approach to bra fitting so it felt good to break that down for a change and focus more on enjoyment. I’d say if you wanted to buy some Valentine’s pieces or just want some sexier additions to your closet then definitely check out their ranges. I’m fully eyeing up this piece as my next buy.
Note…I did get a second piece but I’m yet to photograph it mainly because it’s pretty much X-Rated on my body so trying to get usable angles was impossible haha!
