Playful Promises is a UK brand that’s new to me, but I heard they were having a sale. Now, this is probably just like the rest of you, but the word sale excites me like no other thing does. I saddled up my proverbial horse and moseyed on over to their site and fell in LOVE. There were so many cute things for under 15 pounds, I had a hard time reigning myself in to just the one set. But I did, and I am pleased as punch with it.
It’s a satin burlesque little number that makes my little heart patter with joy. It’s got bondage-y things (the scientific term, I assure you) on the tops of the cups that look hot as hell peeking out of a t-shirt and three colums of hook and eye closures in the back. It’s soft and comfortable, and at twenty pounds for the set, I don’t think it can be beat in terms of value. This is a 32DD, as Playful Promises hasn’t delved into the sub-32 bands yet, so I’m going have to get handy with my sewing for this one. However, it’s quite snug for a 32 band, so if you’re in the 30 or even 28 territory, I’d give these guys a shot.
The bra gives a shape reminiscent of the Parfait Charlotte though not quite as uplifted. It has tall, shallowish cups and narrowish underwires that are almost floppy. They’re padded but definitely not molded, as there’s no rigid shape to them. Underneath a shirt I have a slight east-west thing happening, which has never really bothered me but might annoy you.
Under clothes, the shape is a bit odd due to the satin seams running along the cups. For this reason you may not want to wear it under anything snug, but this really isn’t a t-shirt bra anyway. The longline rolls up a bit when I wear it, but it doesn’t bother me nor is it noticeable. And now, the big question: What about the bondage thingies?
The bondage thingies aren’t noticeable at all. I forgot the bra even had them as I wore it, and they’re not binding or chaffe-y whatsoever.
The briefs are comfortable and will go just swell under my plethora of summer dresses. They make me feel fancy when I wear them 🙂
The playful Promises sale is amazing, and I’m so happy I got this set. Go check it out if you haven’t already and if the size range caters to you. It’s not the best longline I’ve worn, or the most supportive, but for twelve pounds, I’m quite content with it. I’ll be keeping it and wearing it under some plain t-shirts to spice them up, or on days when I really want to be comfortable.
What do you think of Playful Promises? Have you tried them? Will you be? Thanks for reading, my queens.
Until next time…
