Fantasie SS16: Ivana

Hello, beauties! It's wedding season and that always brings out lace, pastels and luxurious lingerie. So whether you are a bride, going to a lingerie shower or just looking for something feminine and beautiful, allow me to present the gorgeous Ivana set.

Fantasie, a division of Wacoal Europe, describes themselves as "experts in creating beautiful, comfortable and exceptionally well-made underwear for women with larger cup sizes."  I do not have larger cup sizes myself so I can testify that their lingerie is excellent for all sizes (not just the larger cup sizes).
One of my favorite aspects of Fantasie's Ivana lingerie is the Swiss embroidery along the border of the bra. Look at those beautiful flowers and the hints of lace... Gorgeous.
The bra options include: padded half cup (which I tested) and balcony. I find from my experience with Fantasie that their balcony bras are better made for women with fuller and larger cup sizes.

The Ivana bras are paired with either a deep thong or brief in the same color (oyster) and with similar lace detailing. I want to give the set a 10/10 rating except for the unfortunate fraying on the lace edges of the brief after a couple uses. I don't remember snagging it on anything but somehow the brief is now frayed.
Sad. I would highly recommend the Ivana bra. With its gorgeous detailing, it would make a great present for yourself or a future bride. Unfortunately, I am not so convinced about the matching underwear. You'll have to be the judge of that.

Where to Buy: Nordstroms (USA) and Debenhams (UK)
