Mimi Holliday Arielle Comfort bra Review
Lots of reviews going on here! I can’t believe how positive they’ve all been, and this one is no different. I’ve finally had some luck with Mimi Holliday! The fit of Arielle is much much better than any of their bras I’ve tried in the past. Another plus is that it’s also my favourite design from Mimi that I’ve tried.
The colour is this beautiful moss green in real life. It’s very deep yet subtle all at once. At a glance it might be mistaken for black, but then you stop and say “wait, there’s something more interesting about this.” The lace is delicate and very comfortable, and the leafy design makes me feel like a forest elf (anything that makes me feel more like I’m part of a high fantasy novel, the better).
The shape is very minimizing. I happened to have been wearing my PL Onyks a while before putting on Arielle, so when I showed my fiancee he was kind of amazed at how much one can manipulate the size of their chest. In one if my looser fitting v-necks I look tiny in Arielle, whereas in Onyks my chest could not be mistaken for tiny by any means. Bras can do magical things! (but we all know that right?)
Now as you can see… I am wearing this on the tightest hook. I’m committing a bra crime here, but it’s a crime done out of love! I can wear it on the second tightest hook around the house, but if I want to wear it when I’m out and about I prefer the tightest. This is probably the comfiest bra that I own, so I am completely willing to wear it on the tightest hook until I decide it needs to be altered. Compared to my previous experiences trying to fit into Mimi Holliday lingerie, this is a huge jump forward. The central gore lies flat, I get enough support to wear it out of the house, no gaping quadboob in sight. Aside from an unfortunately stretchy band, this is a big success.
Do you ever make fit compromises for lingerie you love? I didn’t even feel like I had a choice in the matter. Arielle is just too damn lovely.
I’m always making fit compromises – I think you have to when you’re a 26/28 back and love lingerie! This bra is really beautiful on you 🙂
I’ve been finding a lot of great options for 26-28 backs lately actually! If you ever get the chance I suggest having 28’s from Ewa Michalak made for you. The fit is godly. There’s also Comexim, another Polish brand I want to try sometime. They stock 28’s as a regular size, so they wouldn’t need to be custom made and are thus returnable.
And thank you 🙂 It’s a beautiful little bra
It’s such a pretty bra, I can see why you needed to compromsie and it fits beautifully so go with it.
