Claudette Review: Sandstone/Navy

Lastly, let’s talk about the Sandstone/Navy. I purchased this in a 28G. The in-cup quadding is BY FAR the worst in this one, which is sad because I like a lot of things about it. I like that it’s not “Nude/Navy” but “Sandstone/Navy”. That’s exceeding rare to find.

Claudette Review: Leopard Dessous

Today, I received my three Dessous bras in the mail. I was most excited for the leopard print one, but, unfortunately, that one has the worst fit of all. Since you can’t return from the Encore sale, I’m stuck with it. I’m considering doing some alterations, but it’s just too damn big. I’m swimming all over the sides and top, though it’s the only one that doesn’t quad where I have center fullness.


First, let’s consider the child I wanted to love but made me sad.
