Trying to find a good comfortable yet sexy bra and pants these days is sometimes impossible! I often find the bra looks good but the pants aren't sitting right or the other way around so I had high hopes for the new Playtex Collection when I was told it has been recommend by Mary Portas herself.
Mary Portas says that: "Good, well fitted lingerie is absolutely key to any look - it's all about getting the foundations right. Playtex has designed two gorgeous new styles that combine fit, support and comfort with stylish glamour to perfectly complement my new fashion range."
The new, limited edition range combines pretty detailing with natural shapes to deliver a fabulously feminine silhouette with all the comfort, fit and support the lingerie brand is famous for. I was sent a set of the multi-coloured ivory to review. I was suprised to find that the cups on the bra are just material so very sexy and as you can imagine a bit see through so not really sure it can be worn with some tops especially at work! It is lovely though and makes you feel very womanly whilst wearing it. I love the shape this bra gives you as well and although it's very thin material it actually gives you a nice support. The bra is well detailed too with a little bow at the front, frills along the straps and beautifully crafted lace at the front.
The pants are really nice too a quite comfortable, they have fabric at the front and back and the sides are all made of lace to match the bra. They're stretchy so don't dig into your skin, they just sit nicely on top. They're also very soft you'd hardly realise you had them on! It really is a beautiful set.
There are two different styles and four different colours to choose from. Satiny Lace (this is the set I received) features pretty, stretchy lace and comes in a choice of black or multi-coloured ivory. The Delicate Embroidery features sheer tulle with two-tone embroidery in a choice of mink & pink or multi-coloured ivory. Sizes, bra: 32-38 B-F and briefs: S, M, L, XL & 2XL. Pirces: Bra £30 and Briefs £14.
The new "Mary Portas Recommends Playtex" range by Playtex is available exclusively at House of Fraser and independant lingerie retailers nationwide.
Overall a lovely set, very comfortable and stylish. Beautiful delicate colours and these sets would make an excellent sexy gift from the man in your life! Not too pircey for a decent set of underwear either and I would recommend them to friends and family.
