With Christmas fast approaching, Blog Reader, it is time to focus on more than just the lingerie brands themselves but the sites that can help you find that perfect bra / style of lingerie / loungewear piece / weapon of seduction* for your holiday gifting. This week we start with a UK site, Charlie Girl Lingerie, who stock a range of lingerie, swimwear, loungewear and menswear intimates including key brands like Calvin Klein and Berlei.
Charlie Girl kindly offered to gift me a piece from their collection alongside a review of their site. I browsed for only a short while, categorizing lingerie by my size and found this Wonderbra Ultimate strapless bra and brief which I thought could be the perfect solution to holiday party dress dilemmas. This Wonderbra is not so much cleavage enhancing for yours truly but it feels very secure and comfortable on and this version has a pretty lace overlay for a very feminine look. The smooth moulded cups use Wonderbra’s ‘hand’ technology – your breasts are enhanced by the hand-shaped structure inside the cups and the silicone bands around the back provide extra stay-in-place support. For someone my size I’d say this bra is an excellent foundation for strapless tops and dresses**.
The Charlie Girl site is categorised well overall, even going into the detail of separate sections for sports bras and their bridal collection. I do wish that their brand list was alphabetized but overall the site is easy to navigate. They have many of the usual lingerie and swimwear suspects to choose from but also some interesting choices of brands like Red or Dead swim which is a lively and contemporary addition to the brand listing. Some excellent sale picks too.
My top picks from Charlie Girl:
Red or Dead Garden Swimsuit (adorable)
