Adore Me Tristin Set Review

tristin bra panty set review so parisienne
"Tristin" push up lingerie set in black with red lace, bra in 34B and thong panty in size S

As you'll remember back in September, I featured a pretty little magenta lingerie set named Jenna. Adore Me kindly let me choose another set to try and love, and their spring offerings featured a lot of delicate lace used as sexy accents over the traditional tshirt bra shape. The Tristin has a sultry black base colour with delicate red lace overlays. Inspired by how French women always wear matching lingerie sets underneath no matter the occasion, I am excited to start curating my collection with pretty (but functional) little things like this.

The lace does create bumps when worn under tshirts, so it is better worn with looser fabrics that don't cling too tightly. They did not carry this style in 32C so I went with a 34B and it fits pretty well. There is a little gapping between the cup and my goods but it doesn't detract from comfort or function - it does however create some visible bra lines from the front. They weren't exaggerating when they called this a push-up bra because it easily gives the appearance of 1-2 cup sizes larger due of the generous two-part padding. Adore Me lingerie has a keen eye for detail - there is even a little delicate jewel that sits at the bridge and sturdy hooks for the straps that don't burst open and leave one running to the bathroom to fix that unsettling feeling.

The front has decent coverage but the back of the panties is full-blown thong. The ruffly boyshorts that were an option with similar styled sets sold out so was forced out of my comfort zone to venture into rubber-band-around-a-head-of-lettuce land and to be honest, it is a really weird feeling. Once a boyshorts girl, always a boyshorts girl. Near the top there is a little keyhole and heart-shaped flash of red lace.

Overall, I feel the bra alone is worth the $40 price tag compared to some of Victoria's Secret's pricey push ups. The company's representatives are polite and easy to work with. Shipping is free to you and for exchanges in US and Canada and you can subscribe via your showroom (like Shoedazzle or Jewelmint) or pay as you go for the ones that really catch your eye. The website recently underwent an overhaul on design and user interface. I appreciate that are dropdown menus to search for bras and panties by size, especially since I wear a rare 32C and have a bigger butt than most petite ladies. If you're looking for a specific style, there are more options to search according to coverage on the left sidebar as well. I spy recently added bra & panty sets of cute bright summery colours and styles, so take a look!
