Okay okay, it may be 2020 but I am still 100% obsessed with animal print! Leopard print, snakeskin and even zebra! I love the bold bright prints, they’re great for dressing up or down any outfit and they pretty much go with any block colour. Versatile and a great statement look that is set to follow for 2020, I’m obsessed still! I have my key items in my wardrobe that I love to switch up depending on occasion, including a few oldies but goodies. But today I’m bringing you something a little new, an animal print option that you can actually wear everyday!
Yep you’ve guessed it, it’s underwear! I used to be such a plain Jane when it came to underwear, always sticking to basic nudes or monochrome sets, never experimenting with prints or bold colours. As you may be able to tell, those times have changed and thank goodness! I love experimenting with new sets and styles. So today new to the Sculptresse family, let me introduce you to Dionne, kindly gifted to me by Panache. As I’ve said in previous blogs, Sculptresse by Panache are one of my favourites. Every time the quality and fit is really great and I’ve yet to find a bra that doesn’t work for me from them, but what about this one? What did I think of Dionne?
First up the print, the animal print! It’s a tile print that has a gorgeous snakeskin look, the python set! I love that it’s not an all over, too much print and that it features in sections along side the black mesh and matches perfectly with the mid rise briefs. It’s so stylish and so on trend. It’s great to know you can be on trend even when you have to pop office wear over the top or just jeans and a tee on, it’s one of those sets where you can feel like an utter queen underneath and no one knows!
Next the fit, I received my bra in a size 36G. The overall fit is great, sitting flat the cups and giving a really comfortable fit. I love a four part cup that gives support all around. With adjustable straps and double hooked back it really offers great support. The shape this bra gives is also really lovely, I’m such a massive fan of a harness strap! It adds so much sass with just a simple detail. It’s great for under any outfit and on a low plunge neckline it really adds effect! This bra runs from a size 36D to a 46K, a really great range for the plus size fuller bust babe. If your band size is smaller than this range, Panache also do a range of really gorgeous bras in a similar print and style that fit just as great.
Then the briefs, I received mine in a size 18. And they are a really comfortable mid rise style which give great coverage and comfort, again the material is so lovely and super soft. The briefs run from a size 12 to a size 24. Again a good range, although it would be nice to see Panache extend their range past a 24 to match the bra sizes. I love how the print on the briefs match the bra perfectly, with the snake print and mesh details.
This is such a great set that sits perfectly under any outfit for day to day or to spice up an outfit if you want it to be seen! I actually wore this bra under my Christmas party dress to make the harness detail seen! It was really gorgeous and really finished off my outfit! It’s so comfortable too It’s definitely my go to for a busy day. As always I’ve linked the set below if you wanted to have a look or even treat yourself! Is animal print still a favourite of yours this year? It’s definitely not leaving my wardrobe! X
