It used to be that if you had larger boobs then getting sexy, pretty lingerie was a no no. I have lost track of the number of times I have seen gorgeous styles on the high street only to be thwarted that they stop at a C or a D cup. Bras for larger boobs generally have become more common place and no longer do you have to put up with wearing something that might look more at home on your 90 year old grandma as retailers wise up to the fact that girls with big boobs want to feel pretty and sexy too.
There is still though a downside and that is underwear for big boobs is still on the expensive side. With good fitting, well made and pretty bras sometimes as much as £40 – £60 when you need two or three it makes a massive dent in your wallet, and I won’t sacrifice on buying cheap underwear. I’ve learned that mistake. Whilst it may be a quick fix it doesn’t last and gives you that awful double boob look when you find you’ve come spilling over the cups during your days exertions in the office.
There is though one lingerie brand that is challenging the price point on underwear and particularly for those with larger boobs and that is Marie Meili. Your eyebrows may be raised at this point, like me you’ve probably not heard of this brand, with a USP of ‘everywoman is unique but we all share a love of good design and good value’ they have produced a range of fun, flirtatious, practical lingerie that caters up to an E cup.
Stocked in House of Fraser the Marie Meili lingerie range is reasonably priced with some bras coming in at £18 and some of the more intricate designs topping out at £32.00. I was lucky enough to be sent this gorgeous set from their SS15 range to try out and wear and the moment I opened the parcel I fell in love with Moulin Rouge style set.
The fabric is gorgeously soft with a sateen finish and the lace detailing on the briefs makes them much more attractive than just wearing a normal high leg brief. The moulded cups on the bra have a nice deep side band to avoid that back bulge we all worry about and the underwear gives a gorgeous shape under clothing thanks to its smooth fabric and well shaped cups.
I’ve worn this several times since receiving the item to review from House of Fraser who stock a large selection of the Marie Meili lingerie and every time I have worn the set it has been superbly comfortable giving me no marks or rubbing and fantastic support. The fact that it is gorgeous also makes me feel gorgeous and confident when I wear it.
It has quickly become one of my favourite bras and when it is time to update I my lingerie draw I will certainly be looking at what new designs Marie Meili have created to tempt me!
