Mimi Holliday Sticky Toffee Pudding Superplunge shoulder bra

What girl needs the most after moving from Ukraine to Bay Area – a new bra of cause ))

May be this isn’t really the case, but after I discovered that I forgot to pack my favorite bra into the unaccompanied luggage (it was supposed to go there, because I loved it, but bright red with black is not the most practical combo, so I decided that I could survive couple of weeks without it), I just needed to buy a new Mimi Holliday bra to fill in for Nymphina,

Actually current selection was a real disappointment for me. Where are all the bright and deep mono-colors? Magenta? Indigo blue? Canary yellow? Aquamarine? Well, “Strawberry split” is bright and it’s not some funky color combo, but I don’t like this particular shade of red on my skin, and that’s pretty much it ((. So I decided to go with “safe” color (old quest for perfect bra to wear under white shirt).

Fit

It’s on larger side of Mimi cups (like Bisou-Bisou Rose), so 32E is closer to real E, It’s not super small like Berry Fest. Actually the fit very much the same as Bisou Bisou Rose I reviewed here. May be band is a tiny bit more snug, but it’s new and I was wearing Rose time to time for months now. Conclusion: kudos for consistency!

The only difference shoulder design makes for me: straps doesn’t slip that much (it is the only issue with other Mimi bras I have), but of cause they create some limitations on necklines.

I also have a feeling that for some strange reason this bra gives more pointy shape, but not terribly pointy.

Materials

Consistent with other bras I have, Mimi quality is good (silk, elastic and cotton for padding inside cups – all materials feel really good). What I don’t like is that they obviously decided to go with what they already had in stash from other bras and used despite it wasn’t really good choice.

Colors

You can’t see it on promo photos, but mesh and elastic they used for back of the bra has slightly different shade than everything else (more rosy) and it doesn’t make bra to look more pretty, it actually looks a little bit sloppy. Given the price tag: shame on you. Damaris!

Compare to real life colors:

As you can see there is a quite noticeable difference in colors

Main color in is a little bit darker and very close to light peachy beige. So it works as nude for fair skin tones quite well.

The brightest point of this review is: this bra can go under white shirt! (and for me it’s more comfortable than any other bra I currently have).

Photo-proof: it's invisible under white shirt on me

For that I can forgive that some sloppiness in colors, so I didn’t sent the bra back.
