A few months ago I received a rather exciting email:
“Due to high customer demand, leading full bust lingerie brand Parfait is thrilled to announce expanded cup & band sizing for Fall. The best-selling Charlotte Padded Bra, Sophia Wire Bra and ever-popular Alexis Babydoll will be available up to K cup, while the Charlotte Padded Bra will also be available in a 28 band.

Ever since Invest In Your Chest reviewed the Charlotte bra by Parfait Affinitas set I’ve been dying to get my hands and boobs on and in one. And so after reading that the bra would come in a K cup and in a hot pink… 36H Parfait Affinitas Charlotte, please be mine!
This set is a UK 36H/20.
This set has a gorgeous retro-ey feel to it, and of course that ticks my box. And even though I’m not normally one for pink, the girly side of me was so excited to finally own a hot pink padded bra.
The bra has nice thick straps which are fully adjustable, and the band has FOUR!!!!! hooks and eyes. The lightly padded cups give my bust a great rounded shape and the straps and wires are perfectly placed for my broad torso and wide bust.
The bow details and the patterns on the bra and knickers stop this set from being too sickly sweet, and they instead add the that retro twist. The high waisted briefs are lush – although I wish they were dark at the back like the bra, or maybe sheer. They fit my generous booty rather well, but it is visible from the front that they could do with being a little roomier/stretchier.
Sadly the bra is a smidge too small in the bust. It fits well at the side, but I do experience some slight overspill at the cleavage. The band fits perfectly, and so I think that a 36HH or a 36J would be the best fit for me. It is such a comfy bra, and I hope to get it in the right size one day soon.
How do you like the Charlotte? Have you tried any Parfait Affinitas sets before?
