Now that it is December, holiday season is in full swing! That means our favorite lingerie departments and boutiques are stocking their shelves with all the lovely goodies of the season. Whether you are adding something to your wish list, or splurging on something special for yourself, here are my top 5 full bust options for holiday and New Year lingerie.
For me, colder temperatures mean swapping my Sauvignon Blancs for Syrahs. This opulent, wine-colored, satin set reminds me of the warm, rich flavors of my favorite reds. The Panache Harlequin Rhea Bandeau Bra is a true stunner! In sizes 28D-38H, the ever flattering balconnet style features a lush satin paired with delicate embroidery. I imagine this gorgeous hue flattering many skin tones. The bra retails at $79 with the matching short at $34 making it a great value for a high quality set. The panty is available in sizes XS-XXL.
Tis the season of shiny things! From silver bells to the sequins on a New Year’s Eve dress, this is the season of shine and the Freya Deco Charm Moulded Plunge Bra evokes the same twinkle in my eye. In a luxurious silver accentuated by black trim, this plunge style bra brings the sexy by providing a little extra oomph accented by a simple bow and charm. My favorite detail, however, is the subtle ruching of the straps. Ladies sizes 28D-38G can enjoy this style and the matching brief, in sizes XS-XL. Again, you can look good, feel good, and keep a little more in your wallet. The bra retails at $53 and the panty at $22.
Let it snow! White isn’t reserved exclusively for June brides anymore. Channel the signature winter element with this white babydoll by Affinitas Parfait. I’m particularly excited about this style, Alexis, because even though many brands have expanded to full bust bras, not all brands have tackled full bust babydolls, chemises, and the like. Full bust girls can have fun too with this underwire and side sling supported, see through mesh nightie. Not only is Affinitas known for its modern styles and accommodating fits, but also for its reasonable pricing. Pair this babydoll with a matching bikini or high waisted brief for under $100. You can treat yourself and have a few extra dollars to treat others, but only if you want to! Babydoll, in sizes 30D-40G, retails at $65 and matching panties at $22-$25.
Mistletoe and evergreens are signs of the season, which is why this fabulous green number is a great choice for the season. I love the look, but have never tried the Figleaves Boudoir brand before so would be interested in knowing about the fit. I’m just excited to see a set, complete with a garter belt, for us full busted ladies! This style, known as Tease, could easily be known as ‘tempt’ as well. The set features a sexy demi in lavish emerald silk accented by darling black eyelash lace for sizes 30B-36G. Pair the bra with the matching brief (click on the link to see the keyhole back!) or thong for an alluring look. However, to ensure this is the show stopper it is meant to be, add the suspender. If you’re feeling really cheeky, a matching mask is available. It’s the gift that keeps on giving! The bra retails at $75, panties, $47-$50, and suspender at $53.
What better way to toast a New Year than with Champagne! Or at least a delicious, champagne colored bra! This Simone Perele Demi Full Cup Bra, Celeste, in Peau Rose, fits the bill. Made with Chantilly lace, this underwire bra with lined, two part cups provides you the support you need while still being festive and fun. My favorite detail is the feminine scalloping of the cup. Pair this with the tanga or boy short for a complete look. The bra accommodates sizes 32E-38F and retails at $95. Matching panties, in sizes XS-XXL retail at $45-$55.
