About three weeks ago, I was browsing through Instagram and came across a picture of a bra and panty set that had little kittens on them. The poster, Purrfect Pineapples, said that she only had enough fabric left to make one more set, and to contact her if you were interested. Needless to say, I was interested, and nothing lights a fire under your ass faster than the phrase “only enough fabric to make one more set”. I sent her an email on the spot, and she got back to me fairly quickly. Fast forward a few pleasant correspondences, and the designer, Erika, agreed to make me the set to my measurements.
The set arrived very quickly, and it fits wonderfully. Like all of Erika’s sets, the kitty set is striking and unique. It’s playful with a hint of sexy, a combination that is very difficult to achieve. The bra is a wonderful addition to my lingerie wardrobe, and will be filed under “impractical but fabulous purchases”. The ruffles make it a bit less versatile than some of my other pieces, but can be worn under a loose-fitting shirt and is fairly comfortable when I wear it.
I say ‘fairly’ because it’s ever so slightly pinchy under the arms, despite the lovely satin edges it has. The spot where the strap meets the cup digs in a little bit, but it’s not that noticeable and I’m hoping after a few washes it’ll go away.
There’s some wrinkling on the green mesh of the cups, so I can’t tell if they fit bigger or if it’s just the fabric.
The band fits perfectly, and overall the bra is a purchase that I’m quite happy with.
The underwear are super comfortable, and I can’t feel the ruffles at all. They’re also the perfect size, so I’m super content with them.
The garter belt is actually supposed to sit around your hips and not your waist, which is a first for me, but it was more comfortable than having something constantly around my waist.
The mot outstanding part of this set is the detailing. Intricate ribbon, ruffles on every visible seam, and big purple bows compliment the teal mesh like a match made in color heaven.
As I said before, I’m very happy with this set. I’d definitely buy more of the underwear and garter belts, and as for the bra, I think if I got another one, I’d request the satin edging to extend up to cover the strap attachment (if that’s possible) so it doesn’t rub as much.
Check out Purrfect Pineapples’ Instagram (she often posts limited-edition sets that can only be made a few times, and special fabrics) and ‘About’ page, where she talks about some of the methods of making the lingerie (it involves silk-screening and heat!) Finally, check out Erika’s Etsy shop to have a look at all of the adorable lingerie she can make.
As always, thank you for reading, and I’ll see you next week!
