B.Tempt'd Lingerie at Simply Beach // Review and GIVEAWAY!

Whilst in the studio taking boring pictures of this gorgeous underwear set, my boyfriend encouraged me to keep things simple and just put them on (Getting mighty Gok Wan on me)! I protested at first, but then I realised something... 
This is why I love blogs so much, seeing real girls in action. So why should this be so different? I may not like my body too much, but I've accepted it, and we all know that what we see advertised is usually digitally exaggerated, to a borderline unrealistic level or has cost thousands in daily personal training that I know I don't have the time nor the money to invest in...  
Too many times have I moaned that these models don't give me a realistic idea of how things are going to look on someone who isn't toned and tanned, (i.e me)! And if I ever have tried to imagine, Its never accurate, so here I am in my new smalls (with a bit of help from low key lighting because I felt too naked).


B.Tempt'd  La Parisienne push up bra and hipster pant - Simply Beach 


SimplyBeach offered me a pick of lingerie from the new 'Underwear' section of their site, and I decided that this was an opportunity to try something different. After finding the perfect fit 4 or 5 years ago, I've bought almost all Gossard. I was worried about the fit and sizing of a different brand, but went for this gorgeous set.
I absolutely love the fit of this set, its perfectly true to size, a little stretchy and is incredibly soft to wear. The best thing though, is the slight padding. Now, I like a tiny bit of padding, purely for shape, but its so easy to go overboard, and I hate that. This bra doesn't *looks* like your conventional push up bra, and actually the padding is very minimal! 

Also, I can't fault the service at Simply Beach. My order arrived on Monday after ordering late on Friday, and I was given an hours time frame for the arrival of my package - Much less stressful than waiting all day!

  9. Seeing you have the confidence to put these pictures on the internet for everyone to see is just amazing. You look absolutely gorgeous and I envy your confidence! We have a very similar body shape and size judging by these pictures and I would never dream of doing this. It's making me think that maybe I can look this good too, without punishing myself in the kitchen or gym! Good on you for accepting you! x
