Passion beneath the surface...

A wise woman once told me that the way to true confidence is through lingerie. Not in a sexual way- more in the feeling of feeling great in what you’re wearing, even down to your underwear. And to be honest, I’ve never heard a better piece of advice! When you’re just wearing a plain black ill-fitting t-shirt bra, you’re not exactly going to feel like BeyoncĂ©. 

The ‘ill-fitting’ part was always my problem. I’d never been truly sure of my size, and after a couple of scary fitting sessions at various places (with the end size being so contrasting you’d think it was two separate people being fitted), I’d been scared by getting fitted. While in conversation with Passionata about being sent some of their lingerie to review, they suggested they took me to Selfridges to be fitted. Maybe this time it’ll be different…I thought. And I couldn’t have been more right!

Selfridges fitting room and staff are so amazing! I felt at ease straight away, to the extent that I didn’t feel awkward taking my kit off! The fact that the staff were able to guess my size before they’d even measured me was pretty impressive. Let’s just say the end measurement was really far off what I’d been wearing…

Passionata don’t have a huge range of bras for ladies with small backs and a big cup size like me, but the styles they do have a truly beautiful! I decided on this longline bra and hipster pants from the Bloom collection. They also have this style in blue, but I thought the black was really timeless in this style. The two-tone floral design is discreet alongside with the delicate lace that borders the pieces. 

The bra is more of a bralet as it has quite a thick back and straps, meaning you can let it show under things without feeling too exposed. It can be quite hard to do up the back, but practise makes perfect ;)  The see-through mesh merges into the floral design so just the right amount of skin shows through. I couldn’t believe how comfortable this bra was! When you are fitted, you are fitted tighter rather than looser, as over time the material slackens, but this isn’t uncomfortable tight- I feel held in! The bigger style also accommodates for a wider cup, which is great if you’re wide at the sides. 

The pants are really comfortable too, which is really something for undies this sexy! The waistband is nice and wide, which really flatters your shape, while the hipster style shows a little flash of cheek. I really love the contrast between the different panels of lace; again really flattering.
