The first time I saw the Gossard Desire, it was on a 2cakeonaplate article about AW15 upcoming styles… I just fell in love. Since this day I was overseeing Gossard Facebook page to be the first to buy this beauty (even if I knew it would take a big part of my student budget…) . Then, October came and my birthday too… I had to put my hands on it. As if the lingerie God heard me, Gossard‘s newsletter gave me a -20% code the week after my birthday. NO CHOICE. HAD TO BUY IT.
Less than one week after having placed my order, the object of my desires was at home.
I’m actually a small 30GG so I bought a 32G because Gossard doesn’t sell my size. My first impression was “DAAAMN these cups are huge!”. My roommate found it very funny then she wanted to compare with one of her bra cup.
Yet, after trying it, I realized I shouldn’t size down in the cup, but it would be magic if I could buy a 30GG.
The fact is that I ordered in the same time the Gossard Glossies in 30G ( my usual size in Gossard unpadded bra) and the difference between the bands’ firmness was huge. I wear it at the medium hook to extend the life of my bra but I could comfortably close it at the first hook. I was a bit surprised as Gossard 32 bands are usually closer to a 30 band.
However, after wearing it for several hours I find it to be correct. The bra gives a round shape ( I was worried about that because I tried in the past the Floral print plunge Gossard bra and it really didn’t fit me). I have to say that the lace is absolutely marvelous!!! I do love longline bras, I find them so elegant! This one is no exception. I feel like a queen (or like Wonderwoman) when wearing it.
The biggest issue with this bra is the cup edges… They are too close to my armpit and to be honest it is a bit disturbing. Also, the wires are not firmly into my inframammary fold ( maybe a 30 band would solve this problem). I don’t know if these issues are the result of a bad adaptability of the style to my size but I know it could be a real inconvenience for narrow wires lovers.
The matching Brazilian knickers in an XS (as usual with Gossard) creates some muffin top around my hips. I should probably have gone for a Small. I don’t like that but as I am not sure that the S would not be too big, and as my roommate told me it was fine, I think I will just go more often to the gym…
But in the end, I think I really love the Desire. It’s my first “boudoir” set and I think it is one of the things that mark the beginning of a new part of my life.
