Lingerie Review: Mimi Holliday Sugared Almond Bra High Waist Corset Knicker

Disclosure: I received this set as a gift from Mimi Holliday for review purposes. All opinions are my own.

Mimi Holliday Sugared Almond Non Padded Shoulder Bra and High Waisted Corset Knicker

Mimi Holliday Sugared Almond Non Padded Shoulder Bra and High Waisted Corset Knicker

Mimi Hollidays Autumn/Winter 2016 Collections are full of styles named after sweet treats that are neither sickly nor saccharine. Cinnamon Sugar, Wild Strawberry, Marmalade these simple, delicate flavors bring to mind sunlit autumn mornings in bed, with warm milky tea and cozy cotton sheets and fresh fall air. These sets fit right into that vision. Theyre pretty enough to satisfy your sweet tooth, but delightfully simple and oh-so-wearable.

Using the softest blush stretch lace, the Sugared Almond groupВ fits in perfectly. I didnt request a specific set when Mimi Holliday reached out, but aesthetically-speaking, I couldnt have made a better choice myself. The pink lace is ultra-soft, edged with tiny blossoming garlands, covered in swiss dots, and layered overВ creamy, vanilla-tinted mesh. Its so pretty but also incredibly soft and comfortable. I received theВ Non Padded Shoulder Bra, available in UK sizes 32-38 B-F, and the High Waisted Corset Knicker, available in sizes XS through XL.

The bra is excellent and almost acts like a faux bralette.В In a 32F, my usual size, I can barely feel it around my torso when I wear it. The band does runВ a tiny bit big. Combined with the single-hook back and the soft, stretchy lace, you get a bra that doesnt do a lot of heavy lifting, but rather gives just enough support. For individuals who love the idea of a soft, comfortable bralette but have trouble fitting themВ (hi! me!) or simply want a bit more lift, this could be a niceВ alternative. Plus, the high cups are lovely to show off under a lower top, just like a fashion bralette. Its really the perfect comfortable bra. It could even be a nice underwire sleep bra, if thats your style.

The stretch lace gives a retro teardrop shape, and the position of the dart means youll always have a little point at the apex of your breast. If youre looking for a perfectly round, ultra-lifted shape, this isnt the bra for you. I wear the largest cup size available for this style, but from my experience fittingВ similar Mimi Holliday soft-cup bras, the shape will stay basically the same on smaller-breasted figures. The overall silhouette is very 1970s wildflower meadow maiden and I am so down withВ it.

Comparing the photo of the model with my photos, it looks like the plunge might be cut slightly different in largerВ sizes due to the laces width. In the 32F, the lace meets the center gore almost horizontally, giving the V shape a wide, flat point. That angle looks less dramatic on the model, but its hard to say without comparing the two inВ person. Having said that, if your breasts are particularly close together, the extra-wide V shape of the plunge may cut in. However, IВ can see this style working well on both shallow and full breasts.

I have a very short torso, so predictably, the knickers come up a lot higher on me than on the model. High-waisted panties in general give me mixed feelings, I love the vintage vibes, but I dont like how they look on my narrow hips. Luckily, this pair in particular is very high on the leg, which is a nice contrast and makes them look more like a style choice than a modesty decision. I typically wear between a Medium and Large in panties, and this Large feels true to size. I could size down, but the softness lends itself well to a slightly fuller fit, and Im not sure Id want that gusset to be any smaller! Its preeeetty narrow.

Both the bra and the knicker are mostly seamless and sit smooth against your skin, aside from the pretty grosgrain elastic corset lacing on the back of the knicker, which Im obsessed with. If you dont mind the lack of nipple coverage, it makes a great t-shirt bra, with no edges showing from beneath your top. A bra that is full of pretty lace but soft enough to feel like a bralette? Like the name implies, this Sugared Almond set is delicately sweet but casualВ enough to wear on a daily basis. I love it.

What do you think of this Mimi Holliday set? Do you wear bras with this teardrop shape?
