Like most, I’m a sucker for a good sale. Sample sales, the holy grail of all sales, come once in a blue moon and are a huge part of why I’m a materialist. When I heard Ohhh Lulu was having a sample sale, I got more excited than I’m willing to admit.
My bank account took quite a hit, but I’m extremely content with what I bought. The pinkish-colored bralette you see above is one of my favorite Ohhh Lulu pieces ever, and when I saw it in the sale, I had to buy it. The cream set you see below spoke to me with its cotton and ditsy florals.
You can’t really tell how delicate the pieces are from the photos. I couldn’t either, until I unwrapped them– and let me tell you, they’re stunning. Flawlessly crafted, the three pieces I bought are both comfortable and functional.
The only drawback to the garments is the fact that they’re using standard sizing, so I was only able to get these beauties in an S for the pinkish one and an XS for the cream. The underwear were labeled S/M, and fit more like a small than a medium.
The cups of the bras fit wonderfully, and have surprising projection (much more than her corresponding “Jasmine bra” sewing pattern, which I found to be quite shallow and had to alter the curve of the cup to get a good fit). The band, however, is a bit roomy in the XS and definitely on the big side in the S.
Both bras are lined in soft cotton, a detail I wasn’t expecting but am very pleased about.
Overall, I’m extremely happy with my purchases, and am even more excited for the Ohhh Lulu order I placed from her non-sale shop. The sample sale is still ongoing, so feel free to see if there’s anything fabulous in your size.
Until next time,
