Wanted to love it!
This was my first Mentionables purchase. The set is very well made and simply gorgeous. I agonized over sizing because I have a weird body, but I ended up going with a Small because that’s my normal size and it matches the measurements on the chart. It fits, but it’s slightly uncomfortable and unflattering in areas, so I think I’ll always buy a size up from Mentionables from now on. I have had 3 beautiful children and it shows, but this set doesn’t make me feel like I’m trying to *play pretend* to be young and sexy again, it is tasteful and I know if I got it in the right size I would have felt like a million bucks. On that note, I will say if you have had kids/breastfed, the strappy openings in the bralette can definitely give a “busted can of biscuits” vibe if it’s too tight but thankfully my husband didn’t seem to mind haha
Smaller than Expected
Right out of the package, it showed the quality and gorgeousness I’ve come to expect from Mentionables lingerie! I got my usual size that I order (1X as I’m borderline on measurements, and I prefer extra room knowing they can be tightened). I was really disappointed to find that this didn’t fit me well, like all my other pieces do. The wire doesn’t encompass enough, and then the appliqué straps were tight and unflattering, too. I’m not sure this is the best style for large-chested ladies, but it’s still very pretty and good quality!
Wow this bralette offers great support (I'm a 34C and ordered a M). I love all the strappy and lace details which make this piece sexy and mysterious all at the same time.
My New Favorite Set
Love this set, incredibly well made and made me feel so sexy. Care was definitely put into the design and the creation of this set!
