I've spent the last 15 hours with the most hideous stomach virus. Lord. I cannot tell you how awful I feel (or how many dozens of times - no exaggeration - I've thrown up since 7pm last night).
As you know, when I get sick, I get very anxious, so this post is a way of keeping me connected to the wider world. I have to assume I'm getting better. 5 hours ago, there's no way I could have lifted my laptop, much less typed. But I have fever and chills and the myofascial pain is through the roof. Dehydration will do that.
Anyway, want to say that my Masquerade Persia set arrived last night. I cannot review it because it is strangely large (I did wonder how this size-up thing was going to pay off). I need to go down a cup size (but not a band size - the band is super comfy) or maybe 2. I'm going to try 1 cup size because the difference between one and 2 cusp sizes can be dramatic. The bottoms, which for some reason I bought in a UK size 16 - when technically I would wear a 12 - are VERY large for size. They fit more like an 18UK, I suspect (not that I've bought an 18 UK, so I'm guessing). The vendor is very accommodating and is holding the set in a smaller size because, as soon as I can leave this bed (aka not today), I will return the one I've received. There's a point to be made that you shouldn't size bras online when you have really bad PMS.
I can say that this set is as beautiful as I'd always hoped it would be - and the materials are very luxe. Much more so than what you would generally get with Freya, Fantasie (and way more luxe than Cleo). It looks, and feels, delightfully high end.
More when I can think straight.
