Back in February Addition-Elle invited me to the spring launch of their new intimates collection featuring plus model Ashley Graham. Much to my disappointment I was not able to attend but shortly after they sent me a press package which included a coupon for a bra a panty from my local store.
This past weekend I was finally able to make it over to Addition-Elle to check out their lingerie line. I have to say, IT’S FRIGGING HUGE! Seriously, I could not believe how many styles there were for pretty bras and functional bras; both underwire and wire free. I took a few pictures while I was there and of course tried on a few styles.
And that was not all of them.
As you can see from their mannequins many of the pretty bras have matching panties.
Unfortunately many of the pretty panties did not go above 2x. In fact there was a huge amount of 1x and 2x sizing but I did not not find anything larger. Perhaps those sizes just sold out quickly. When I say “pretty panties” I am referring to the lacy ones, not the basic briefs. The bras though had many sizing options to choose from.
I tried on the lacy Femme Fatale and Smooth Curve Underwire Bra (definitely check out this one as its band is really unique) but ended up taking home the Smooth Embrace Underwire Bra in white (with a coordinating white brief) which does not have any molding so will be perfect for summer. I also loved how it covered the back area (I will do a full review posting once I wear it for a day).
The staff of course were friendly and helpful. I think they might have had a few extras on for the customer appreciation day (I have such good timing) they were celebrating with their customers. One of the things they were giving out with purchases were some kick-ass fashion watches — I was given a lovely Michel Studio bracelet watch. This photo does not do the watch justice.
I looked at their website and they still have their buy one get the second 40% off if you are interested.
