Affinitas Rosie lingerie set

As promised, here is my review of the Affinitas Intimates Jennifer set that we are giving away this month (see previous post for details and instructions on how to enter).

One of my favorite things about this set is the color scheme. It’s even prettier in real life, and this shade of teal is flattering on almost any skin tone. Second favorite thing: it’s very breathable, and I imagine it would be easy to wear all day even in hot summer weather.

This is a push-up bra, and the style is somewhere between a plunge and a demi-cup. If you’re sensitive to wires and/or don’t like a lot of padding, this is probably not the set you want from Affinitas; fortunately they do have a non-wired alternative called Rosie (shown at right), which is also really pretty and looks ultra-comfy.

The 34A in Jennifer fits me very well and gives a nice tasteful hint of cleavage, without shoving my boobs up to my neck or squishing them together too much. In the words of my fiance, my bust “needs more guidance than lift” (yes, that’s a direct quote).

Who knows what would happen without such guidance? The girls might stray down the wrong path. They might run wild… it could be utter madness! So I appreciate what the Jennifer bra does for me.

I especially like it that the cups are not set too close together, so I don’t end up feeling like my boobs are being squeezed in a vise. The push-up padding is angled up and out to the sides from the center gore, which gently pushes things inward and doesn’t create that awkward “shelf” effect.

"Chloe" bustier by Affinitas Intimates.

Affinitas Intimates "Chloe" bustier.

Hey ladies!

I know that many of you who need a size 30A or 30B bra are frustrated with the lack of lingerie available in band sizes under 32. Although this is not a problem I personally have to deal with, I can certainly sympathize.

That’s one of the reasons why I’m thrilled to be writing a review of the “Chloe” bustier and hipster set by Affinitas Intimates: this petite-friendly brand starts at a 30A.

Reason number two: this set is incredibly hot.

Men: if you’re looking for something to get your petite wife or girlfriend for V-Day (or any other occasion), I really do not think you can possibly go wrong with any piece in the Affinitas Chloe collection. Just make sure you know her size, and you’re all set.

There’s even a choice of colors: blue and black, or pink and black. I went with the blue in a size 32A… but honestly, if I’d gotten the pink I might have suddenly developed a taste for pink! That’s the level of gorgeous we are dealing with here.

Who went back to school this semester? You’re probably done with all your back to school shopping by now but when you picked up all your new notebooks and pencils, did you remember to get yourself some new undies? If not, how would you like $1000 worth of new Affinitas lingerie as well as $1000 for tuition?

Affinitas Intimates is holding a contest and all you have to do is send them some pics of your favorite back to school looks, like them on facebook, tell them where you go to school, what you study, and what you want to be when you grow up. Also, pick out your favorite new style from the new fall line. For complete rules, go to their website. The contest ends on Sept. 18, so hurry up!

For those not familiar with Affinitas Intimates, AAmanda tells me they are primarily a fashion lingerie brand and that their small-scale sizing makes them a good fit for petites. The new fall line, called “Forbidden Romance” features chemises, bras and bustiers ranging from everyday to occasional nights. Band sizes start at 30 and cups start at A. Also new for fall is the Parfait line with band sizes also starting at 30, but with a fuller cup fit ranging from D to G.
