Wacoal Lingerie & Swimwear

A few months ago I was delighted to attend a Wacoal Press day in Soho, London with a couple of my favorite bloggers, the gorgeous Charlotte Broadbent AKA Charlotte Loves & the fabulous Joanna from Lovestyle40. If you don’t follow either of these two ladies, you really must!!

Anyway this is where, not only did I learn that the Wacoal manufacturing group also owns Freya, Fantasie, Elomi, b.tempt’d, Freya Active & Wacoal, but I also had my first bra fitting in years…….and found out I’m a apparently a 32 D!! Embarrassingly I’d been wearing a 36 C, however to be fair I’d not bought any new undies since losing over 2 stone on Slimming World. I really must do a blog about this one day…..if anyone is struggling to loose any weight I 100% recommend this diet, it doesn’t even feel like a diet and really really works, trust me!

I digress…..These events are so much fun & if you follow me on insta you probably would have seen some of the action from the day on my stories……but if not, here’s a few snaps below for you.

Not only did we get a bra fitting but we were also given a couple of pieces and I have also since been sent a couple of sets from the Fantasie range so I thought I would ask my photographer boyfriend if he minded taking a few snaps of me in them and funnily enough he was delighted! 😉

Now this blogging world is all fairly new to me & has taken me out of my comfort zone more than a couple of times but posting pics of me in my under crackers has really taken things to whole new level!!

We tried to do the photos tastefully, so hopefully not too “Readers Wives” and hopefully does give you an idea of what they can look like on a curvy size 12, 45 year old woman!!

So the first set is from the Fantasie latest collection and called Aimie.

I’m wearing the Aimee Antique Gold Padded Half Cup Bra and the Aimee Antique Gold Brief.

This set is so pretty, a mix of lace & my favourite animal print leopard and comfortable to wear for every day and has a flesh tone so can be worn under white or equally great if you want something a little sexier to wear. I’m wearing them here with a beautiful old Chinese Kimono that my mum gave me years ago to a hide my modesty which also offers a fabulous pattern clash!

The bra price is from £38.00 and in a size 30-38,  C-GG cup, I’m wearing a size 32 D

The pants are from £19 and available Sizes XS – 2XL, I’m wearing a medium

I have also included the pictures of what they look like on the gorgeous 20 year old model below 😉

The 2nd set is also part of the Fantasie range, its the  Fusion Sand Average Coverage Bra

and the Fusion Sand High Waist Brief.

The bra is great for every day, TBH I prefer flesh coloured underwear as a great alternative to white as I seriously can never keep my whites white and when investing in nice undies you can’t afford to have any washing machine errors!!

The bra price is from £32.00 and in a size 30-40,  C-GG cup, again I’m wearing a size 32 D

The pants are a little Bridget Jones but defiantly hold you all in. These are from £21 and available Sizes XS – 2XL, again I’m wearing a medium.

The final set of Lingerie is from another of Wacoal’s brands, b.tempt’d.

I’m wearing the CIAO BELLA FAIRY TALE BALCONETTE BRA and the CIAO BELLA FAIRY TALE TANGA BRIEF. I love the pretty pink colour, worn here with one of Nick’s shirts to hide my modesty again however this set is perfect under one of my go to floral dresses as it’s so feminine and sexy.

Bra Available in up to an E cup. PRICE FROM £32.00

Pants available in sizes S – L. PRICE FROM £16.00

Finally I just wanted to show you the Fantasie bikini I choose for my little mini break to Nice.

The Ottawa Pacific Twist Bandeau Bikini Top and Ottawa Pacific Mid Rise Gathered Briefs. 

This is a gorgeous electric blue, that worked so well (even if i do say so myself) with a tan and my leopard print scarf from Zara I used as a sarong. A similar one can be found here in the sale for £3.99!! Your welcome 😉

The bra price is from £42.00 and in a size 30-38, C-G cup, again I’m wearing a size 32 D

The pants are from £21 and available Sizes XS – 2XL, again I’m wearing a medium.

So there you go…..There’s a few pics of me in my pants and bikini now on the old internet!!

Hope it’s not too cringe and my mum still speaks to me as I know she reads my blog to check my Insta everyday, so I’ll be expecting a call shortly if she’s not happy! 😉

Let me know which is your fav and please shout if you have any questions on any of the pieces I have shown you today.

Lots of love
