I’m going to start off this review by saying this isn’t really my correct size. This was brought at a sample sale and I was kind of in the mind-set of ‘close enough I’ll take two!’. Purchased at a fraction of the retail price how could I say no?
So this is the Sophia set from Claudette in size 32dd and small. It is the less famous little sister to their Dessous bra. I have 4 of the Dessous bras but the Sophia is definitely a new fave. It’s a moulded cup in the balconette style and it has fully adjustable straps. Like all the Claudette styles, it comes in a multitude of colours. This particular one I’m wearing is called sea-foam. It has 3 columns and 3 rows of hooks and eyes so even though the back is a bit big on me I feel secure. If I was buying this bra again i would probably go for 30F as the 32dd is too big in the back and i have a fair amount of spillage out of the cups. There really isn’t a bad thing to say about the actual bra. The gore tacks well, nothing digs in, the straps are sturdy and the quality is good for the price range.
The Sophia Suspender briefs I purchased purely because I like to have my underwear match. I really wasn’t expecting great things. So i was wrong and they are amazing! the material used for The Sophia range is great for everyday as its smooth and thin so perfect for actually wearing under clothes! Who would have thought? The suspender briefs actually do what they say they do and managed to hold up my stockings all day. They didn’t pull my pants off and the sliders stayed in place and didn’t move on their own accord. I really wasn’t expecting them to stay in place. I was so doubtful i had a spare suspender in my bag just in case. The only thing i don’t like is the metal finishes. I prefer mine gold tones and on show. Not coated metal hidden beneath ribbons even though it gives the set a streamlined appearance.. But that just a personal preference.
Overall I am very happy with the Sophia range and I plan on buying it in some other colours in my correct size.This set is currently on sale on the Love Claudette website the briefs for USD $24.99 and the Bra for $29.99
