Taking The Plunge With Passionata

Fashion blogger festive party season LBDAlthough I'd call myself a total lingerie addict, when it comes to practical pieces of underwear that solve wardrobe dilemmas, up until recently I've been a bit hopeless.  I'm aware the right type of bra can do wonders for your outfit, and now that the festive party season has come around those plunging necklines from our wardrobes are once again making appearances!  So, with a little help from Passionata, I'm taking the plunge...

Opting for super-delicate, lacy lingerie has meant I kissed goodbye to cleavage-ville a long time ago, but then again, I wasn't aware such pretty plunge bras were around!  The Brooklyn plunge bra by Passionata is available in four different colours: black, teal, violet and blush. It's undoubtedly one of the most comfortable bras I've ever worn and creates an ideal silhouette underneath dresses - no matter how tight!  Speaking of which, this Dorothy Perkins bodycon beauty is a firm fave of mine for the season thanks to the elegant length and plunging lace neckline.

Busy and pretty lingerie underwear flatlayI've no doubt I'll become best friends with the Brooklyn bra over the next month, though it'll have to wait until the weekend because I'm spending the rest of this week in Germany for the Christmas markets!  While I'm away I'll be hitting 'publish' on a pretty new Christmas gift guide for women - keep your eyes peeled, and in the meantime catch up with my Christmas gift guide for men!  Kiss kiss!

With love,

  16. This is so gorgeous! Not only is the lingerie stunning but I love how you have showed it! You are beautiful and so classy. I also prefer lacy bralettes to push-up bras usually, but for a party dress sometimes a structured bra is necessary! Also, that dress is amazing!

  21. I'm a huge fan of lacy lingerie too! Love your dress!


  22. A good bra is so important, I work in the lingerie department in a department store and 80% of women are wearing the wrong sized bra ! You be amazed at the new found confidence they have walking out of the fitting room in a pretty, well fitted bra and nice underwear ! You look stunning in this outfit :)

    lots of love, Marianne xxx


  23. It's a pretty set and I love that dress on you! Nice photos with the roses too.

  24. You look absolutely ravishing in that bodycon dress. I absolutely love how you accessories the dress with that lovely chocker necklace and red lips. Such a feminine and flirty combo!

    This bra seems so perfect. Lingerie can make such a difference. Especially when it comes to tight or tailored clothes, well fitting lingerie is essential. This bra looks both beautiful and comfy...and it seems very practical.

    You're right that with festive season, we need to revise our lingerie collection. I mean we do need perfect lingerie to go with our festive dresses and outfits for special occasions.

    Enjoy your time in Germany!

  25. I like the bra. It has a touch of sexy and looks comfortable too (these two don't always match).
