Just want to say thank you to everyone who's commented or emailed me about my post yesterday. Your feedback has been such food for thought and I welcome all of your considered perspectives. Please, keep up the conversation!
Today, let's switch gears, just a bit, in deference to the season - and because, really, what soothes a body-image challenge more than gorgeous lingerie??
Meet Lulu Tout bra and undies, wending their way from the UK:
|Lulu Tout Coco Lace Underwired Bra|
Technically, I bought the thong (which looks like it belongs more naturally, texturally, with the bra):
|Lulu Tout Coco Lace Thong|
FYI, this set is exceedingly affordable and I got it for 20 per cent off using a coupon code that someone else suggested. I believe it was TEMPTED but I can't quite remember. If you opt to buy on Figleaves in the next while, that promo code just might work.
But, you might be thinking, Kristin, haven't you had it with Figleaves? Haven't you said that 10 times in the last year, given that every experience you've been through lately has involved the receipt of product that doesn't fit and incurs Customs fees?
Thing is, the line is a Figleaves house brand. Ain't no way to buy it but from that vendor.
Moreover, I've only ordered one set which won't be boxed (I have to hope), and therefore should avoid detection. FWIW, last time I got Customs-dinged, for a batch of stuff from Figleaves - all of which I returned, I actually filled out the refund paperwork (what a pain) and got 40 bucks back from the government! Sure,that's 20 bucks less than Customs took originally but, natch, that's the "admin fee".
As mentioned, this is a really affordable set, even before the discount I finagled. Plus, if you're American, you can order from Figleaves US but Canadians, don't go Figleaves US! UK vendors are less likely to attach additional Customs charges.
Let me tell you why I decided to take a chance on this set, even though I'm pretty sure my heart belongs only to Empreinte:
- One can only afford so much Empreinte.
- One has
- One desires a pretty package.
- One is performing a public service for those who have not yet tried this brand, which is likely most everyone, since it's new.
- One has read that it's remarkably supportive, even as it looks light and sexy.
- One cannot crawl under a rock, simply because one's stomach is a mushball. Priorities, people.
After saying all of this, there's a high likelihood that I'll end up returning this sucker, cuz I know nothing of the brand and it's just as likely as not to be a bad fit.
What attracts me to it is the vibrant colour and the applique effect of that overlay. Plus the undies are adorable - a full coverage thong! What could be better!
So, what do you think of Lulu Tout? Have you heard of this brand? Do you like this set? Let's talk.
