Both the color and construction
Both the color and construction are lovely. I wish I could have purchased just the top as a bralette, but I ended up returning because the bottoms are so terribly unflattering. The bottoms seem too tight, too small for the top. If you've ever had a cesarean and have the scar and skin to prove it (no matter how much we work out!), these bottoms will not be flattering. I'm hoping to try something else though, and I really love the vision behind this company!
When putting on the bra, the jewel on it completely fell off. However, the construction on the set was well done, but maybe could have been done better I'm 5'8" I weigh 160lbs and usually wear a 8/10. My bra size is usually a 34D at Victoria's Secret, and off brands I usually wear a 36C. I bought a large, and it fit well, I hadn't adjusted the straps, but it overall fit me well. The underwear was a bit on the small side. I'm really happy with my first purchase of Mentionables and I think I will shop here again. I'm hoping that soon your sizing will become more standard and fit universally and become more diverse in sizing so that I can recommend them to all of my friends and family.
I love this set! It is absolutely gorgeous! The color is stunning. It does run small, so I would size up. I wear a size 8-10 and I bought a large and the underwear are still a little tight. It is still a very loved piece by me and my husband.
The set was beautiful! Very delicate and thoughtfully designed. I originally ordered it for after I have third baby, but it actually is quite large and fits now. Re-looking at their sizing chart, however, I realized that it was my mistake and that with my normal measurements I should have ordered a medium. However, I decided to keep the set in this size because it was so pretty I wanted to wear it right away. I think it's an impressive set of lingerie that can make a 9 month pregnant woman feel sexy again. I love this site and the fact that I can ask my husband's opinion without dragging him into a place like Victoria's Secret, or flashing him views of half-***** models online. I would definitely order from them again. :)
Beautiful, but poor sizing
Same as a few other reviews have mentioned, I love the look and the color is beautiful! The bralette fit well, but the bottoms were tight. I'd recommend going a size up with this set!
