Ohhh Lulu Lingerie: Anyone Tried It?
Everyone who knows me on a personal level knows that I love Etsy. When asked “where did you get that?” 90% of the time, I’m going to respond sheepishly with “Etsy…” I actually have a shop of my own on Etsy where I sell prints of my art, as well as a couple original drawings. If you find it, I’ll be impressed! Maybe one day I’ll share my Etsy store with you when I’m comfortable enough to associate my real name with this blog.
One of my favourite shops is Ohhh Lulu Lingerie, but I’ve never been adventurous enough to try anything from it because all the designs are wireless. I decided to finally inquire as to whether underwire could be added to the designs, but unfortunately that’s not something that Sarah, the shop’s owner and designer is doing at the moment. Sarah was very helpful and suggested adding boning to a design. I’m definitely intrigued as to how that would work! I look forward to continuing to communicate with her to see if we can come up with something that will work for my size.
One great perk about Ohhh Lulu Lingerie? Every garment is custom made for you, so I could get bras in a 26 band! There’s also the option to add or remove frills, bows or lace form a design to suit your individual taste. For an additional cost you can apparently have light foam padding added to any bra as well.
I have to wonder if the wireless designs could actually work as they are in my size. 26FF, the size I would order from Ohhh Lulu, really isn’t that big. While I know it wouldn’t be as supportive as one of my underwired balcony bras, I imagine it could work. What are your thoughts on wireless bras? Has anyone in a full bust size considered them as an everyday bra? And if any readers have any experience with Ohhh Lulu Lingerie your comments would be much appreciated! I’m very curious as to the fit and support.
Some designs I’m really interested in…

So as you can tell, I’m a bit smitten with Ohhh Lulu. I’m certainly hoping I can make something work, not that I can afford all these lovely sets anyway. I’ll have to settle for one or two!
I’ve ordered some panties from her, so expect a review of those when I get them! I am not planning on trying her bras right now, as I don’t use wireless bras too often, small busted as I am. They are SO pretty though!
Found your blog today, I’m also a 26FF/G / 28F/FF and an art student so I’m really enjoying reading you so far.
For daily wear not really but I would love to get some to sleep in, and these are pretty, but for the time being $50 is way to expensive for a sleeping bra for me, I’ll stick to my Bravissimo nightwear for now.
Glad to hear you’re enjoying reading my blog! I’m hoping the custom order I have for a longline bra I have with them will be supportive enough for daily wear, even without wires. But I’ll have to wait and see! Nice to hear from another art student and 26 bander! What medium(s) of art do you study?
Looking forward to read the review 🙂
I have a degree in Painting and am finishing a Master in Drawing at the moment, even though the medium I use the most is photography.
Oh awesome, we’re working in the same sort of vein then. I focus on Photography in school, and drawing to a lesser extent. In my spare time I do a lot of painting though. So glad another arty found my blog!
That’s nice, now I’m curious to see your work! The funny thing is even though I studied painting for 4 years I don’t paint at all, I really wanted to learn how to do it well, but afterwards totally lost interest in it.
Good luck with your studies, already added the blog to google reader so I’ll keep an eye on it 😉
