Freshpair - Review & Giveaway

**Warning - This post shows photos of models wearing undergarments. If this offends you or you have children in the room, you may want refrain from reading further.***

In my personal opinion, undergarments can help make or break how you feel. If I am wearing a bra that digs into my skin or shifts often, it can be quite irritating. I'm also not a fan of my underwear sneaking up in places that it's not welcome. I've bought many bras and underwear in my time that have been poor quality or have not given me the comfort I need.

Also, being somewhat of a larger size, it's hard to find undergarments that are cute. Usually I'm forced to go with plain white, black, or tan. I want pizazz, color, and oomph just like anyone else.

Thankfully, Freshpair has a large selection of bras, panties, sleepwear, and shapewear to suit anyone's needs.



I received the Wacoal Retro Chic Full Coverage Underwire Bra and the Wacoal Retro Chic Hi-Cut Brief for review. Usually I don't pay mind as to whether my bra and underwear match, but I've been wearing this set together. Not that anyone besides me or my husband gets to see it, but it's pretty nice to have such a lovely set of undergarments. The lace detailing is charming and the little diamond gemstone on the bra is lovely.

Unlike some other bras and panties that I've owned, this set has yet to cause me discomfort. It stays in place where it should. I've washed them in the washer and have laid them out to dry. So far, so good when it comes to keeping their shape and elasticity.



My oldest daughter received the b.tempt'd by Wacoal Pretty Please Bikini and the b.tempt'd by Wacoal Pretty Please Contour Bra. Wacoal's new line, b.tempt'd, caters to younger women's tastes and budgets. Her opinion of her bra and panty set are the same as mine. She is very pleased with them and has been satisfied with how well they fit her body.


My husband received the Nautica Cotton Trunk. Although I won't divulge what he normally wears, this is the first time he's worn this style of underwear. He likes them enough that he is interested in owning more of this kind. He particularly likes the waistband and how it helps keep the underwear from moving while in motion.

Wacoal and Nautica are just a couple brands offered at Freshpair. They carry all the top brands and styles to help you feel confident and comfortable. In addition, they offer free standard shipping on all U.S. orders.

I would choose the Felina Helena Full Busted Unlined Bra. So pretty!

cindi said...

I learned the underwire of a bra should lie flat against your brest bone and rib cage. Guess I need a bigger cup size!

cindi said...

Freshpair.com is strictly an online store and they have no catalog.

I learned:
Washing Bras
Hook your bra together to keep it from catching or tangling. A lingerie bag is your best bet for keeping bras separate. Wash on a delicate cycle in cool water with gentle detergent. Never put bras in the dryer because the heat will break down the spandex and you will lose elasticity.

I am Lee-Ann... said...

I learned this from FAQ;
If my order is shipped in multiple shipments, will I be charged twice for shipping?
No. You will only pay shipping once.

little bird said...

i would get the Olga Luxury Lift Underwire Bra 35063

little bird said...

i learned from their expert advice that #
#

T-shirt or fitted top made with clingy fabric: you'll want to wear a seamless, full-coverage bra to smooth over the natural curves and bumps of your breasts. The reason you need to stick with a full-coverage option rather than a demi-cup is because you need to be sure the bra doesn't hit in the middle of your breast and have a dividing effect.

little bird said...

from their faq i learned that You may track your order by logging into the My Account section, or by entering the order number and billing zip code in the Customer Care section. Once logged in, you will be able to click on the tracking information.

Amanda said...
