Undrest is the Best!

We just love! They just test drove the Undrest Marissa set! Here's what they have to say!

Product Review: Alison tries Undrest’s “Marissa” set

March 27, 2007

Kicking off our Review Week is new Knickers addition Alison, who tried out one of the lovely new sets from Undrest. If you like the Brazillian-inspired style of Undrest, stay tuned as we’ll be covering more Brazillian-cut knickers this week!
Undrest “Marissa” Panty and Bralette

Price: from $48
Get them at: Shop Isabella, Faire Frou Frou, and other pieces at Bittersweet Butterfly
Sizes: XS,S,M,L
Colours: Cream/Cream trim, Menthe/Cream trim, Peach/Cream trim
Range includes: Marissa Bikini Knickers, Bralette, Camisole, Girlshorts

This sexy Brazilian-cut “Marissa” set from the designers at Undrest are made from 100% Supima Cotton (a type of cotton grown predominately in the US, OZ and Peru – for those of you who like me have never heard of it!) and as a result, are amazingly soft and sensual. The cotton has been teamed with traditional French lace and opulent cream silk ties to create unusual and sexy lingerie set in sanguine pastel colours.

Having used the Brazilian all-derrieres-look-great-in-this cut, the bikini knickers may be preferred by those who like a low-cut brief. Similarly, the bralette (pictured first) is ideal for less buxomly challenged, but there’s also a camisole on offer. The knickers have ribbon ties at the sides so you’d be advised to wear something non-figure hugging with this set. Gorgeous as they are, the ribbons do have a tendency to create unwanted bumps where you don’t want them. (Editor’s note — I tried the matching girlshorts and they proved much more practical for everyday wear — and look at that adorable heart!)

This lovely Lolita-esque set is perfect for the romantic and for the sexy, traditional femme in you and is a definite weekend outfit – think crisp white sheets, croissants and coffee and the sun streaming in as you wake up looking like the goddess that you are…

I love the Knickerblog too! So show them some love and support the girls at the same time.
