Back in May, Debenhams launched their #KnowYourSize campaign to encourage women to use their free expert bra fitting service so that they can reap the benefits of a correctly fitting bra. 8 out of 10 women in the UK currently wear the wrong size bra, thanks to outdated fitting techniques such as the "plus four" method. As part of this campaign Debenhams have been kitting me out with some beautiful lingerie. This month I have been sent an utterly gorgeous Freya bra and brief set and I have a set to giveaway to one lucky reader, too!

When I visited Debenhams Oxford Street store for my VIP bra fit I was surprised to discover that I had gone up a cup size, even though I had fully expected the fitter to tell me I had gone down. I've had two babies so my boobs are much softer now than they were pre-pregnancy. My problem was that as well as wearing the wrong size bra, I was also wearing the wrong style of bra so my poor boobs were just not being supported at all. Now that I have bras in the correct size and in the ideal style for me, I feel much more supported and have a lovely silhouette under my clothes.
This month Debenhams sent me a Freya Green 'Fancies' plunge bra and matching briefs. They are made with all over lace and the underwired bra has a low back single hook and eye fastening and peep hole in the centre at the front. The lace is soft and delicate and the bra and briefs both have contrasting purple detail. If bright fashion colours aren't to your style, the bra and briefs also come in black and white.
Now I'll be honest, when I first opened the package and saw this beautiful, delicate lace bra staring back at me, I thought, there is no way this will bra will be supportive enough. But I was wrong, so wrong! It is incredibly comfortable, and so supportive. I absolutely love the shape the bra gives; I would never normally have dreamt of going for a plunge bra as I always assumed that they squish your boobs into a strange position but this bra simply gives lift and enhances my natural shape. And I love the colour of this set, the bright green is just so fun and perfect for summer!
And now for the giveaway! Debenhams are kindly giving away a Freya Fancies bra and briefs to one of my readers.
