I have always found lingerie shopping difficult and having a smaller bust has been a frustration of mine. Trawling through shops and trying to find flattering bras that don’t make me look flat chested, aren’t ridiculously padded or give me an in-your-face cup enhancement has been a struggle.
I don’t often buy lingerie, let alone online as I usually like to try bras on in the store. So when I was approached by Hunkemöller and asked to review one of their bralettes I was apprehensive. I browsed their beautiful lingerie sets, their longline and strapless bras before deciding on this statement black Suuze bralette.
Hunkemöller was founded in Amsterdam in the 1800s. They originally made corsets before developing over the years and creating stunning lingerie products across Europe. Now I didn’t know they sold their products in the UK so exploring their UK site was completely new to me. I noticed they have really handy guides that can help you measure your bra size, find a shape of bra that suits you and also find a comfortable sports bra.
When the Suuze bralette arrived I was so pleased. The material is soft but robust. The detailing of the lace edges and the gold strap attachments are so pretty. It is clear to see that every part of this bralette is thought out and well made. The main thing I love about this bralette is that the straps on the front and the cross straps at the back can really make a top of a dress bolder. I paired it with a low cut black top and having the bra poke out actually makes the outfit look nicer in my opinion.
The one thing that did niggle me is that because the bralette is quite a complex design I did struggle to put it on. The first time I did have to ask Jamie to help me get it on and if put it on before going out I have to make sure that the straps aren’t twisted so I have found that I have to ask friends or family members out help a girl out with this one!
Overall I love the design, it fits perfectly and is easy to adjust as well. I think that bralettes enhance smaller busts simply because they are delicate and flattering and I hope Hunkemöller create more in this style. There is a such a wide range of items on their UK website and more importantly, the brand caters to all body shapes and they make their bras in a variety of sizes. For smaller busted girls like myself and larger busted girls, Hunkemöller has a fab selection ranging from AA to H cup.
