Happy Saturday friends!
How are we all doing? I’ve honestly had a weird week, and I’m ready for it to end. But today I’m showing off another little set from Revival Lingerie, so hold onto your hats guys, the back rolls are back!
So after my last post from Revival Lingerie, I got a wonderful response from people. It’s not a concern for me to open up about my mental health or my issues with my body, as we know. But standing in my underwear was genuinely terrifying. But I faced the fear, and I was lucky enough to only receive one string of bad comments.
Now, I realise that to many, you might think I’m asking for my body to be critiqued by posting these photos. If you’re here to tell me I’m glorifying obesity — I’d suggest you leave. My body is not to be commented on, this is just for illustration of the underwear of which I’m reviewing. It’s to help others find nice knickers, purely.
Plus, you know what I AM glorifying? My own body, and my body only. If it helps other people find underwear or strength to love themselves, then I’ve done more than my job. No one is going to gain a load of weight to look like me, but they might just realise that their body is absolutely fine the way it is.
But I digress — let’s talk about knickers, right?
In my last review I mentioned how the circle-stitched bullet bra wasn’t quite my shape, since my breasts aren’t quite full enough to fit them. The remedy to that? This subtly pointed bra!
It has a slightly more rounded point to the cups, so it’s a better option for newbies and weird busts like mine! But it also means this bra isn’t as tight on the top of the bust, which makes it so much more comfortable. It doesn’t look or feel as tight as the other style, too.
The same with the 030 bra from the last post, I’m wearing a 38D due to the 38E being too large in the cups. However, this one is a much better fit for me. The band is still too tight — but the good news is that Revival Lingerie will be bringing some more band sizes too!
I love french knickers. They look so comfortable and classy… on anyone but me. This is the second pair of french knickers I’ve tried, and they really aren’t for me at all.
Not that they’re not comfortable and soft — because they’re pretty lovely to wear, and the lace isn’t scratchy at all! But sadly the shape of french knickers in general just does nothing for me. I feel like I’m wearing boxing shorts from the 40s, but I also happen to be Danny DeVito.
I took the 5XL in these, and I’d size down according to your hip size, since the waist is very generous!
So between this post and my last post, my thoughts on Revival Lingerie are as thus; they’re a great value brand for any of your vintage-styled underwear needs.
Beginners will find great styles to ease them into foundation garments; I recommend the 008 bra or the 018 bra, the 067 briefs and 064 6 strap suspender belt.
