Fit. Form. Feeling.

Plus size, fuller bust lingerie review of Sculptresse by Panache. A review of the DD plus Candi bra in Navy.

‘When I’m wearing Sculptresse I feel empowered, confident, happy and playful’.

I was recently lucky enough to participate in the #FitFormFeeling campaign with Sculptresse.  The campaign, featuring their host of new season designs, celebrates ‘different body shapes, attitudes and desires; with each design created to make the Sculptresse woman look and feel amazing.’

And that is truly the test of lingerie.   Any lingerie; whether it be fuller figured or straight size.  It need to make you feel amazing.   Your underwear is the foundation of your day and as much a part of expressing yourself as the clothes you choose for people to see as you go about your daily life.   Underwear may not be seen, but the right underwear can lift, support and embolden both mind and body.

The Sculptresse Candi Review

I have reviewed the Sculptresse Candi bra before but, with a new colour in town, its hard not to draw attention to the bra again.

The Candi is a soft cup bra made from a three part construction that allows for a very natural, mid-lying shape to the breast. The satin fabric has a subtle shine that is contrasted against the dotty mesh panels.    The back band is wide and made from a soft, cotton-like material that provides both comfort and support.

In my previous review of this bra I spoke about the central gore sitting uncomfortably high on the sternum.   I’m not sure if this is something that Sculptresse have amended in the new colour-way or if dropping a back band has affected the positioning on my sternum.   Either way, the bra no longer sits uncomfortably high and, after a month of wear, this bra has become a staple of my daily wardrobe.

Because the lift of the breast is subtle in this design, it is the perfect bra for pairing with the high-neck shirt styles that autumn brings.   I often feel that an exaggerated cleavage (the type created by a moulded plunge or balcony bra) can look a little too overt when wearing a poloneck.  However, the soft cup style of the Candi bra is perfect for creating a rounded shape that looks a little more natural beneath  autumn’s turtle and boat necks.

I can testify that the Candi bra is also long lasting – I have had the black version for over a year.  It has recieved substanital wear and still feels like new.  As with all Sculptresse bras, it is definitely worth the investment.

    This looks like a fantastic, well fitting bra. I think it’s great that this one doesn’t sit uncomfortably high like the previous one.
