Passionata Lingerie: Adorable Bandeau Set

Passionata Adorable Bandeau
I have three weaknesses: lingerie, shoes and chocolate.  Though truthfully, I'm not convinced they can be considered weaknesses when they're each so wonderful.  I'll admit the latter probably isn't the best for me, but I refuse to believe there's anything at all wrong with indulging in pretty lingerie and skyscraper heels!  Over the years, I've rewarded myself with any of the three.  A good test score would result in a pile of Green and Black's chocolate, a refreshed workout regime would see a new pair of black stilettos added to my wardrobe and the ability to remain polite to someone who was anything but would see me shopping for laced triangle bras.  On this occasion, however, there's no reason and it's instead a case of admiring something pretty.. for pretty's sake!  Say hello to the Passionata 'Adorable' Bandeau Bra c/o and Passionata 'Adorable' Sexy Shorty c/o...

Passionata Adorable BandeauIf you follow me on Twitter, you'll know of my adoration of lingerie by now.  It's true I do my best to keep the retweets of pretty delicates to a minimum in a bid to save people from public embarrassment - there's nothing quite like receiving accusatory looks in cafés.  ''No no no, you've got it all wrong.. I'm not looking at her, I'm looking at her underwear!'' Anyway, just like with shoes and chocolate, lingerie has a definite feel-good factor about it.  It's beautiful to look at both online and in person, beautiful to touch and most importantly, to wear.  Passionata has been on my radar (and in my lingerie drawer) for a good couple of years now and so when opportunity arose to select a set from their look book, it's safe to say both chocolate and shoes paled in comparison to the options available!

I have a track record of purchasing balconette and triangle bras and so this seemed like the perfect occasion to try a bandeau bra for the first time.  Although the material is delicate and feminine featuring floral lace cups, support isn't compromised thanks to the underwired design - the ultimate combination, if you ask me.  Also, if you're a fan of wearing pretty underwear that doesn't feel constricting, Passionata's bandeau design would certainly be a direction worth looking in - take it from someone who shares the same goal.

I should point out that although my heart well and truly belongs to this black version of the Adorable set, the design is also available in Tyrian Pink and Sage.  Then of course there's also varying styles of briefs to the Sexy Shorts, including the Thong and Bikini.  Sigh.. it's lingerie heaven!

This is undoubtedly my favourite set at the moment; I love how flattering the design is, how pretty the neckline looks when subtly revealed beneath a v-neck t-shirt and most importantly, how it makes me feel.  Well.. if you're in a public place, I hope nobody walked past and raised their eyebrows knowingly at you as you browsed this blog post.  But I mean, if you're going to be judged for looking at half-dressed women online, let them be wearing Passionata lingerie - right?

With love,

Gabrielle x

  15. Laughed out loud at "I'm looking at her underwear!" Oh, Gabrielle. I'll be honest and say I do have a soft spot for pretty lingerie too, and the lace details are making my knees weak. I agree with Angelina; the photos are taken so cleverly! I've also got a spot for heels (6 inch platforms, pl-EASE) and books. And cats. Cats, definitely.

  24. wonderful photographs....very sensual and beautiful. I don't think anyone should be judged for looking at these in public, I mean modern advertising that is in our face all the time is, generally speaking, much more shocking and provocative (and way over the top for my taste) but people hardly notice that. Your photos are very taste and rafined...and they provide us with lovely view of this lace lingerie. This set is really adorable. I must say I really love lace lingerie....I always did....and black lace is so feminine. I checked out the passionata site, they really do have great pieces.

    Plus, I love your philosophy of rewarding yourself with chocolate, shoes and lingerie...perhaps I should do the same, because I really love all of the above. I did buy a pair of shoes to celebrate something a few times and it is a nice way to motivate oneself:):)

  49. Nothing beats black lace and your new black set looks beautiful. I admire how you've managed to take such stylish and non-tacky pictures. Passionata is one of the few brands that always fits me and I like their designs. I also use to give myself little rewards, when I achieve a goal. A lot of times, it's something sweet (cake or chocolate), but lingerie is both a healthier and more long-lasting present, so that's what I'll be getting myself the next time:)
