Fashion: Freya Retro Bloom collection

Fancy underwear is something I’ve been really getting in to recently. Even though I’m single and have nobody to share it with, I find that there’s nothing better than knowing that you are wearing a matching set of underwear or a fancy bra underneath your clothes and it can do a lot for your confidence. Back in December I attended the Clothes Show where I was treated to a bra fitting with a specialist from Freya. It had been quite a few years since my last fitting (probably around eight or nine if I’m honest) and since then I’ve grown quite a bit, so I was curious to find out what my real size was.

When I went into the fitting I was wearing a 32D which I’d recently bought because I had noticed that my 32Cs had started to get a bit too small. I thought that the 32D i was wearing was probably fine as it felt great and I wasn’t in any sort of discomfort at all but I was surprised to find that after trying a couple of different styles on in different sizes, I was in fact a 30E!

The girls at Freya then showed me the latest collections of both underwear and swimwear and they very kindly allowed me to choose a set for myself. I couldn’t help but fall in love with the Retro Bloom collection with its pretty vibrant pink flowers on a black background, I decided to go for the longline bra and briefs.  This is by far the prettiest underwear set that I own and I can’t help but feel like I have my shit together when I’ve got matching underwear on, so when it’s as pretty as this, I feel like I can conquer anything.

I’ve never owned anything from Freya before and it’s not a brand that I would have usually considered as they are only available online and in department stores and I usually get my underwear from places like Primark. However, now I own my first set of Freya lingerie, I will definitely be checking them out next time I need to go underwear shopping.

    This is such a beautiful and feminine set, I really love the colour and print. I think many times we just throw on whatever and forget about how wearing a set like this can really make you feel fab x

    I never know how to style florals, so wearing them like this where minimal styling is required is perfect for me!

    I absolutely love going underwear shopping! Completely agree with that feeling knowing you’ve got a new matching set on, I’m single too and it’s as much for me to look and feel good as for a man to think I look good in
