The Spring of 2014 will be remembered as “The Season of All The Pink Lingerie” From hot pink to deep magenta, a bunch of my favourite companies have come out with some gorgeous lingerie pieces in yes, you guessed it – pink – for this season. Just recently, I reviewed the Yes Master Bra & Thong Set and the Charnos Cherub Bra – both of which are awesome. Now, I have another gorgeous set to add into the mix.

Meet the Blue Bella “Millie” Satin and Lace Bra and “Millie” Shorts. When I found out the lovely people at Lovehoney were going to send me this bra & panty set to review, I was tickled pink – literally. Looking at the photos, I could tell right away that this lingerie pairing was right up my alley. The Millie Bra & Shorts have a sexy, retro inspired look that I love, plus it totally looks like the kind of set you could easily wear everyday. Also, after reviewing this camisole and shorts set, I’m a big fan of Blue Bella products.

One of the first things I noticed when I received these two pieces, was how bright and richly vibrant they are in person. The product photos really don’t do them justice. Both the bra and the shorts are made of a “Skinny Dip”-ish bright pink satin material trimmed with orange lace. Some people may find the combination of orange and pink garish, however I really like it. It works. It’s bright & fun & kind of reminds me of a sunset.

Cut like a pair of cheeky boy-short panties, the Millie Shorts are made of ultra soft pink mesh material with a seamed, pink satin panel on the front. The front panel definitely gives them a unique look. When I first took the panties out their box, my ever-critical sister was in the room and remarked, “UGH! What is up with the  stitching on the front?! It looks like a jock-strap!” Originally I thought these panties were really pretty, however as soon as she mentioned the word “jock-strap” that was all I could think of. JOCK STRAP. JOCK STRAP. JOCK STRAP.

I’m glad I got that out of my system though, because as it turns out, these panties totally rock. I was worried that because of the design, they’d give me a frontal wedgie. However, these are some of the most comfortable panties I have ever owned. I’m happy to report that there is zero wedgie action (in the front or back) and they don’t look anything like a male protective undergarment when on. Hooray! Here’s a close up of the panties.

I was equally as impressed with the Millie Satin and Lace Bra. It’s made of the same pink satin material as the panties and is trimmed with lovely orange lace. It’s very lightly padded and has an underwire.

Like the panties, the bra has some unique details that really sets it apart from the crowd. The v-patterned stitching on the cups of the bra give it a luxe, vintage-y feel that I totally love. Look at those perfect V’s on the cups! I swoon.

Things You’ll Learn About Love & Sex at 33

April 18, 2014

When it comes to love and sex, being 33 is both totally weird and awesome. On one hand, your hormones are raging and you want to have as much sex as possible. However, after a decade of bad decisions in your 20′s you’re now way more selective about who you sleep with…well, sort of. Most days you want to have sex with everyone and no [...]

Lingerie Review | The Charnos Cherub Bra from Ohhh Canada

April 9, 2014

One of the things I wasn’t expecting when I entered my 30′s was how much my body would change. I’ve always had a fairly large chest for my frame, however over the past two years or so my boobs have gone from a C cup to a DD. Maybe that’s TMI, but it’s the truth. I didn’t have surgery and I haven’t [...]

On Sex, Videos and Blurred Lines

April 8, 2014

One of the most challenging parts of being a blogger and writer is keeping up with the ridiculously fast pace of the news cycle. Thanks to the internet, stories spread faster than wild fire. If you don’t jump on a story right away, you can guarantee that someone else will write it. Life as a writer is busy. I always put my [...]

Review | The Jackrabbit One Touch – a Decent Budget Vibe

March 17, 2014

Although I’m obviously a fan of very high end toys like the Lelo Soraya and the Jopen Vr 12, as an experienced sex toy reviewer I believe it’s important to try toys from all price points in order to get a well rounded view of  what’s available. I’m always curious to see how cheaper toys measure up to my higher end favourites. [...]

What Writers Wear: Statement Necklaces

March 12, 2014

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial. The life of a freelance writer isn’t nearly as glamorous as TV shows make it out to be, however occasionally I like to break away from my usual sweats & work-out wear and dress up a bit. I’m a Virgo who doesn’t like fussy clothes, so I like to keep my wardrobe [...]
