Boux Avenue

Georgian bra and underwear set: Balcony bra £28 NOW £10 Georgian panties £12 NOW £3.50

One of the few things in life which can make you feel so special and good about yourself is firstly, when you know you're wearing matching underwear and secondly when  you know you're wearing fancy underwear. However, I only ever usually buy my underwear from either Primark or George, cheap and cheerful! And the only times I can ever afford the likes of Victoria Secret or Boux Avenue is when they have offers or a sale on. I just don't see the point in splashing the cash on items of clothing that can't even be seen! 

Anyway, the other day I was shopping in town and noticed that Boux Avenue had a sale on, so of course I went for a little look, I wasn't holding out much hope though as I hardly ever find anything worth buying! Not only do they have a sale on at the moment, but they also have an offer which offers a free pair of knickers with any matching bra, considering their knickers tend to be between £12- £15 this is definitely a good offer! 

I absolutely love this little 'georgian style' balcony bra and frilly sheer panties set. To be honest there is no way i would have paid £40 for the set at full price, but for £13.50 it was a bargain! Really though, I would say that the quality is certainly matched to the price in this case, it is amazing and there is a huge amount of detail to the products, so I would definitely consider going and perhaps buying something full price when I have a little spare money! 

With regards to sizing, I would say when it comes to bra's definitely get yourself measured, as I do think with the balcony bra style you may need the size above, and because these pants are quite loose fitting, I would consider trying the size below. 

This set is definitely being saved for a special occasion, as with all of the products at Boux Avenue I doubt this would be my everyday underwear. What do you all think? Do you shop at Boux Avenue? Leave me a comment below! :)

  1. Every year I go through my underwear drawer and have a sort out; throwing away anything old, tatty, ill-fitting, or worn. Then I go out and replace them with new things. I always wear matching sets though so often find that the sale is a good time to pick up new pieces. This is a great find - I'll have to check out Boux Avenue to see what else they have.

    1. Oh I'm the complete opposite, I am definitely guilty of underwear hoarding! My New Years resolution definitely has to be to wear matching underwear from now on haha! X

  3. This is such a cute underwear set and I can't believe that you only got it for £13.50. I've seen a Boux Avenue shop in Westfield before, but I never really bought anything from them, but I think I need to look again. :)

  6. This is so lovely! I'm someone who goes to Primark or H&M. I don't really see the point of spending £30 on a bra! I get really nice ones in the sale. I do think Primark has really upped it's game though. They do have some stunning bra sets in there!

    1. I completely agree, I've bought 2 sets from Primark in the past week they looks so fancy and great quality, I doubt I'll ever spend £30 on a bra it's ridiculous! X

  7. I absolutely love Boux Avenue, i'm due a new bra fitting though because i've lost weight and it's been a while since I bought anything from Boux so I'll have to pop into a store. My favourite ever bra is from there and I think it's called Tori
