Hannah Wilton tests out Leonisa’s Contouring Lace Demi Bra in a 34D and shares her thoughts.
Leonisa says: ‘Floral lace brings out the natural shape of your bust in this feminine bra design. Enjoy medium bust coverage with supportive underwire. Wide back wings offer a great torso fit and perfect coverage. Feel gorgeous in this delicate, yet supportive design.’
Hannah says: ‘The first thing I noticed about this bra when taking it out of the packaging was how light it felt – it is an underwired bra but doesn’t feel like one to handle, a far cry from many of the more matronly, structured styles available. So far so good, but would it provide enough support?
”This feeling of lightness transfers into the fit when the bra is on – it is extremely comfortable and almost unnoticeable when you’re wearing it, which is exactly what you want from a bra.
‘I was initially concerned that such a delicate bra would not be very support, but despite its light feel it provides a good shape and more support than I expected. I first wore it with a silk top that was fairly clingy and it gave me a really nice silhouette, which sadly is certainly not something that happens without some help!
‘In terms of appearance, the bra is a very attractive one, with black floral lace cups edged with a pretty golden spot design embroidered along the top of each one. Matching small ribbon bows in the centre and at the base of each strap in the same colour finish the look.
‘I would say the fit of the bra is pretty much bang on average, which is to say that it fits true to size – I tried a 34D. If anything the cups probably felt on the slightly generous side, however, I think this may be due mainly to the fabric of the bra, which is very unrestrictive compared to some lingerie materials and so probably has a bit more give in it than I may be used to.
‘The underband also fitted nicely and sat flat on my back without digging in. All this meant that the bra was completely invisible at the back under my top.
‘Overall I would say this is a versatile and attractive bra, comfortable enough to wear every day but pretty enough for when you want something more special. It is also very practical as I could wear it instead of a traditional T-shirt bra and be confident that it wouldn’t show through my clothes.’
