If you don’t already know Gabi Fresh, then where the heck have you been? She’s one of the biggest and most influential plus size figures in the world. She’s a blogger/influencer/model/designer and everything in between. She’s the OG of plus size fashion and has led the way for hundreds and thousands of women on the road of body confidence. She is beautiful, talented and her taste in underwear is second to none. Which is why it’s no surprise that her latest collection from Playful Promises knocked the ball right out of the park.
Since having the boys I can’t say that sexy lingerie has been at the top of my list. But when you put matching underwear on you can’t deny it gives you a little boost. Am I right? You know it! But when the Gabi Fresh Bond Woman themed photos came out showcasing the whole curve collection. I was actually floored. I wanted to be a Bond Girl right there and then and I NEEDED some of that collection in my life. Even if it was just to look at admiringly in my wardrobe. It was just so incredibly pretty that I had to have it. The fact it was sexy, pretty and plus size… I mean COME ON this is the kinds stuff we’ve been shouting for.
Let me introduce you to the Gabi Fresh, plus size, Celeste sequinned embroidered Basque. It’s fun, pretty and sparkly. It’s also incredibly sexy with its harness shoulder straps. But overall it’s just incredibly beautiful. Yes, it’s underwear, but what I love about this basque is that I’d wear it tucked into jeans and under a fitted blazer for a night out. Underwear as outerwear is a must when you have something this gorgeous in your wardrobe.
As for the fit, I’d say the bust is generous and the hips are a little snug. But you can make it work for you. It has a three hook fastening at the back all the way down but I managed to pop it straight over my head and pulled it down. No help required. I wore it with the high waist briefs from the same collection which I think are really generous in size. It’s a fab set.
I want to get the bra (from the same collection) as an everyday piece as the basque is a little bit special. But that just shows how much I love the collection. To be honest, the entire Gabi Fresh collection is beautiful. It’s my birthday in March so I’ve already popped some of it on my wishlist!
