As I mentioned in last week's post, I participated in this year's Lingerie Secret Santa, and was delighted when a box arrived addressed to me from Harlow & Fox, a brand I've long admired and dreamed of trying for myself. As a former bra fitter and current-and-always busty girl, I'm certainly aware of the complications that come with making bras for an ample bosom. Let me say this: there's a reason I only make Bralettes for the time being - there is a ton of work involved in crafting brassieres for larger busts. I have a huge admiration for companies that specialize in larger cup sizes, because the fit considerations are just so complicated past a C/D cup, and I've seen plenty of bras that don't quite fit the bill. So, Harlow & Fox, you absolutely rock and you have my full admiration!
Let me start by saying that Harlow & Fox's branding is absolutely exquisite. From the uber chic black magnetized gift box, to the wax seals and sleek lookbook, there is not one detail that founder Leanna overlooked. I can't remember the last time I was so excited to open a package!
And now to the best part: the lingerie! Dreamy doesn't begin to describe the Eleanor set that Leanna sent. The Mink hue is a gorgeous fawny brown (silk and elastene, so stretchy and luxurious), with an oh-so-soft Chantilly lace detail. Leanna sent the Full Cup Bra and Classic Brief, which are both so comfortable and fit beautifully. I can't remember the last time I had a satin (let alone silk!) bra, so this set is truly a treat.
I'm not sure if it was the Special Washing Agent, but I should also mention that the package itself smelled heavenly. Just another treat for the senses. Thank you so much, Leanna and Harlow & Fox. I am one very happy giftee!
