Hello lovelies! I hope you all are having a great week! Today, I’ve got a review of a wonderfully frivolous lingerie set from UK based indie brand Pimp my Pants. I got the three piece set of bra, ruffled knickers, and ruffly harness. The bra is made to fit my measurements and bra size of 26FF. The knickers are an XS and the harness is one size fits all (unfortunately it doesn’t fit me). I loved this set because it mixed femininity in the ruffles and pale pink with overt sexiness in the quarter cup design and sheer mesh. Best of both worlds!
I ordered from Pimp my Pants through their Esty shop. If you need a custom size, just message them through Etsy and they’ll let you know what is possible for you! I’m overall very impressed with their work, and would order from them again. Anyways, on to the fun part!
Oh I really love this set! Simultaneously romantic and come hither. The bra is a quarter cup construction made of a thin foam. There are no seams in the cups, and they are quite shallow. Which, is to be expected in this style of bra. The knickers are made of sheer mesh with ruffles made of satin and mesh. Because of the ruffles, they are a bit heavy. So be aware of that if you’re prone to having knickers fall down on you. One thing that I really love about this set is its character. You can tell that it was lovingly handmade, and to me that adds specialness to the already pretty unique design. No two of these sets are likely to be completely identical, and that’s a great part of the fun with handmade lingerie!
So here’s a closer look at the bra. Now, it’s easily visible that this is not the best technical fit on me, but to be honest I really don’t care. It’s not like I’m going to be running about town in this! The ruffly straps above the cup lay perfectly flat and don’t cut in even though they are not adjustable! I was seriously worried about that with my lack of upper fullness! The gore here does tack, and it’s fairly narrow. As I stated above, the cups here are quite shallow, and I think this style would look particularly stunning on shallower or small busts. I like the way it looks on me, but I do have a fair amount of folding at the bottom of the cup because of the shallowness at the wire. My bra is custom sized, but if it’s relevant to any of you the cups are 5 inches (12.7 cm) wide and 7 inches (17.78 cm) deep. They’re right about 3 inches (7.6 cm) tall. The gore on this is short/average height at 2 inches (5 cm) tall.
Look at these adorable ruffles! I have a big love affair with all things ruffly when it comes to lingerie. Sometimes you just have to screw what’s practical and wear what you love! These knickers fit wonderfully at the top, but I do find that they cut in a bit on my butt. The mesh fabric used is so much looser than the elastic, that they can have a tendency to get swallowed by my butt occasionally. Nevertheless, they are exceedingly cute and I’m very happy to own them! The bra band is cut perfectly for me. It stretches to 24.5 inches which is on the tighter end for me, but the fabric is quite soft and stretchy so that length feels perfect. The straps here are nice and thin, always an appreciated touch for me!
I’m super happy to own this adorable set! Always fun to find a quarter cup that works for non-matrix sizes. I’m really enjoying my recent adventures into indie brands! There’s something so special about hand-written notes, hand stitched details, and getting to chat directly with the store owner!
Finally, here’s a little shot of the full set! The harness was much too big in the waist and shoulders for me, but it’s adorably ruffly. It should fit most standard sizes well. It’s quite adjustable, I’m just very, very petite and small-framed. Nothing one-size-fits-all ever works for me, so I wasn’t surprised here. Pimp my Pants has generously offered to let me return the piece to them for alterations.
So much love for fun lingerie!
