Introducing Mila by City Chic..

I have always been a fan of City Chic. Not all their styles are for me but i have previously got some amazingly cute things from them.

Recently i caved to their amazing sale of a Bra and Panties set for $50... so many pretties

I brought a few sets (which i will review them all) but for today i will be talking about the gorgeous.. 
Mila Underwire Bra and the matching Mila Shorty.

When i saw this set i just had to try it. it was a very different look than their normal bras and right up my alley style wise.

For reference my numbers are 

Bust: 49 inches or 124.5 cm
Waist: 36 inches or 91.5 cm
Hips: 51 inches or 130 cm

In City Chic Bras previously i have been a 18G

I typically wear a size 18 in clothes approximately 
(i usually go on measurements rather than size number)

When i tried it on in-store i ended up getting a 16H as the 18 band was too big. 
Other than the slight change in size the fit is pretty much perfect.

The bra has lace cups and a deep blue satin contrast edging. the strapped bust sits very well. It also has adjustable shoulder straps, centre bow, padded hook closure, powernet lining, and boned side seam frame to offer further support.

The fit of the bra is very nice, i found it super comfortable and i am easily able to wear this all day. no digging in, no pinching.

The cups are not the firmest support, but with a soft lace half cup i am not surprised. It still managed to keep my girls looking good and supported enough for me to be happy.

The back closure is padded so it not scratchy at all. It has a 4 hook closure and the band is lovely and wide.

So over all, I loved the bra. The style is completely adorable. 
All boudoir and sassy while being practical as well.

The shorty was a little more hit and miss. 

Style wise they are super cute. The same black lace and blue satin as the bra.
I will say right out the fit of these is quite firm.
The picture above is in the 18.
I ended up getting a 20 to comfortably accommodate my bubble butt.

They have a solid blue satin front with a lace detail on the leg hole

The back is a sheer mesh , which is lovely and soft.

Now fit wise, these are not that fabulous. i can by all means wear them very comfortably but if i wear them for a full day they do end up driving me bonkers.

As you can see from the images of me in the set. 
While the back sits nice and high, the front dips quite low. 

So if like me you have any belly at all, after wearing for a while the front rolls / folds down and sits just under my belly and i really dislike the feel and look. so i am constantly adjusting all day.

I will say however that regardless of this, the look is so pretty. So if you are not planning on wearing them for a full day, then this would not be a problem.

Overall i have to say, Mila is stunning. The set is stylish, sexy and has that little point of difference on most out there.
