At $13.47, Ann Summers Sicily Underwired Bra is an amazing deal. I mean, this is the definition of a perfect little splurge. Even if you buy it, and its not quite what you hoped for, youre out maybe $20, including shipping. Thats not bad for giving a brand a try and maybe discovering a few favorite.
Personally, I adore the colorful, floral embroidered details on the Sicily bra. The brand looks much more expensive than it actually, and has a very French aestheticwhich is unexpected but also refreshing, and perhaps explains Ann Summers recent return to profitability. If this is the direction Ann Summers is going, its a good one, and I want to see more.
As always, because this is a clearance item, please remember that sizing is extremely limited. As of this writing, the Sicily underwire is only available in sizes 32A and 34A, quite a coup for smaller-busted readers.
If youre looking for more of an outerwear/crop top look, theres also a longline plunge version of the Sicily bra, and it would look amazing paired with a high slit maxi skirt. The longline does retail for a few dollars more at $20.21 and is only available in size 34A. But again, if thats you, congratulations.
Unfortunately, it doesnt appear that either of the matching panties is still available, but Ann Summers does have a basic Ebony Thong on sale for $4 if youre okay with a somewhat simpler panty.
Ann Summers is exclusively a UK company as far as I know and Id love to hear what people whove had a chance to try them in person think.В What would you say about their quality and fit?В And do you have any thoughts on this new direction from the queen of British high street lingerie?
