Though I may stray occasionally, I always return to Princesse Tam Tam. Their bras are so beautiful, so affordable, so French! Like a great pair of heels, they fit so perfectly that they are almost impossible to resist. The latest batch from our dear friends at Tam Tam is from the Reviens and Idylle lines. Those of you who missed out on the Delicate Gray Underwire Triangle Bra will be thrilled to find out that we've received three gorgeous bras in the same flattering cut.
Reviens is a dreamy design, to be sure - with intricate embroidery and a contrasting trim of velvet ribbon, it is supremely girly, but the fantastic colors keep it from being too over-the-top sweet. The "Mocha" is a warm chocolate color, and the "Grey" is actually the exact color of the Lille Boutique logo - that lavendar/gray shade we're so fond of here. Both are unique and beautiful hues for lacy lingerie, and the contrasting trim suits them perfectly! Matching boxer shorts complete the look - though it seems odd to label them as such, given how un-manly they are. Nearly a tap panty, I would say, though much shorter - the type of cut that shows just a bit of derriere décolletage (though technically that might be butt cleavage, but that's not what I'm referring to) at the leg.
The Idylle is reminiscent of the Cocotte set from earlier in the Fall. Made almost entirely of lace in a striking midnight shade of navy, it looks fantastic on just about any complexion. This one is definitely on my wish list, and I'm thinking it will replace many of my boring old black bras. The matching panty is a tried and true bikini cut, with a solid back and lace front - practical enough for everyday wear. The Reviens and Idylle Bras are sure to go quickly, and we've only received one in each size. Sara and I are already fighting over them, so swing by and pick yours up before they're all gone!
