Wacoal AW15 press day
Lingerie, lingerie and more lingerie from the masters at Wacoal, featuring Freya and Fantasie!
I do love DD+ shopping but of late I got mine from eBay as I needed a few and was on a strict budget so I got some rival end of season styles. Unfortunately they didn’t quite measure up as I don’t think my back is quite so small anymore (booooo), so this press day invite came at the perfect time!
Anyway I made it to my first Wacoal bra press day, who have their own signature range, but they also look after Freya (best selling) and Fantasie (for the older woman). There’s also brands for smaller cups or the super large cup, so Wacoal really do cater all bra sizes.
I focused more on the ones that do 28-30 backs and funky colours, so let’s take a look inside Wacoal’s AW15 offering!
The biggest and most popular brand probably across the lingerie industry. I’ve only ever had a few Freya’s in the past and I tend to find the band comes up larger than others. Everytime I get fitted at Bravissimo they recommend Freya as I apparently should be wearing half cups, which Freya apparently generally cut close to, whereas my signature Cleo by Panache is fuller and balconette.
Everyone loves Freya as they’re the most colourful of bra brands and they literally refuse to stick to neutral colours, so defo a brand for me. I picked out their most vibrant styles as my ones of choose, which launch this month and July, so I better get my skates on.
I’ve never tried DD+ swimwear but the scuba style block colours are right up my street! I may have to invest!
This is the bigger sister of Freya and is more suitable for the older woman that prefers more classic styles, The AW14 range is dark with burgundy, navy and neutrals (sorry my images didn’t come out well) but their swimwear is bright and closer to Freya’s style. I’m a fan of the swimsuit and it’s great to see a one shoulder version on the market as it’s been lost over the years!
This is the first I’ve heard or seen of the Wacoal brand which starts with a 32 back and B cup going up to an E, so not 100% suitable for me, but I thought I’d show you the amazingly decadent underwear anyway as it’s ridiculously plush. It’s got deep plunging necklines, quarter to half cups, intricate lace detailing and super slimming lines, so it looks more like luxurious shape wear! I actually wish I was a 32 back just so I can try one!
