Lingerie of the Week: Uye Surana Limited Edition Luna Cropped Cami & Strappy Panty in Honey

It’s happening again. That thing where I can’t stop thinking about a particular lingerie set. Where it fills up my thoughts and my dreams and makes me obsessively check my budget, wondering if this is the day I move forward and commit…or do I dare to wait just a little while longer?

Truth be told, there are two reasons behind my hesitation. One, I’ve never purchased anything from Uye Surana before, and I find myself hesitating to try new labels as I grow both older and wider. It’s a weird sensation finding yourself sized out of the more luxurious side of the lingerie industry, and while I think I may actually fit within Uye Surana’s size chart, that fear of buying something new only to have it be too small has made me reluctant to attempt many new brands nowadays.

But aside from that, this entire aesthetic, much as I love it, is such a departure from my usual lingerie style that it’s both exciting and intimidating. I’ve developed a bit of lingerie uniform over the last few years. Everything black. Bras in microfiber or mesh. Knickers in cotton or bamboo. This cropped cami, strappy knicker, white embroidery aesthetic is miles away from what I typically wear, and I’m fearful I’d buy the set only to leave it in a drawer. Where does one wear a cropped cami, anyway? Were I more fashionable, perhaps with a pair of high-waisted jeans and cork sandals, but I don’t think I’m quite that stylish.

Still, despite trying valiantly to talk myself out of this set (because that’s how all this entire blog post sounds to me), I can’t help but want it. Uye Surana’s Honey Collection feels like it would be perfect for this new sunnier, happier, California-based version of me. Like it would remind me lingerie can be about fun and play – something I’ve come dangerously close to forgetting these last few months. Like it would reassure me that it’s okay to experiment.

At this point, I think I’ve talked myself into going through with it. I’ll add the Honey set to my list of 16.

Have you tried Uye Surana before? And are you making any changes to your lingerie wardrobe for the summer? I’d love to hear about new brands you’re loving lately.

    Oh! I had the opportunity to try this top in their atelier this summer and it was sooo beautiful! But just like you I thought I would buy it and never find an opportunity to wear it. Also, I was not sure if I had anything that would go well under this top. And that would be very sad to abandon it in my drawer… So I contained myself. I am still thinking about it, though :'( .

    I actually bought the bra and panties of this set (but in a different color combination, because honey looks sad on my skin-tone). Very much wanted the crop top as well, but I managed to contain myself. I’m excited to see how they turn out, because I’m trying their made to measure sizing.

      Oh, that’s exciting! Will you review them on your blog?

      • Grace says:

        Yes, I will as soon as I’m able to! I’ve actually just received a shipping notice. So hopefully it will be fairly soon that I get to see these beauties! :) As always, I’m anxious with trying a new brand.

    I bought that very top and also two bras during their recent event and everything was so pretty! Thank you for introducing them to me.

    This is gorgeous! I particularly like the colours, reminds me of the Marlies Dekkers Earl Lagertha set but in a more wearable way.

    They make such lovely stuff! I’ve yet to buy from them, but the interactions I’ve had with them have been incredibly professional and positive. It’s also a pleasant surprise that they offer free custom sizing.

      Also, I believe Petite Collegiate has sent in an order there, so I’m excited to see how it turns out for her!
