As a full-figured, top heavy woman, it is challenging to find a reasonably-priced set of underwear that offers great support and comfortable wear. Most brands that cater to the Cup C/D/DD/XL are usually over the Php1000 mark, so what is a girl on a budget going to do? You can’t live off one or two pairs of bras forever (LOL), right?! Good thing Avon has given us options!
I have always loved Avon intimates because not only do they offer big sizes, the designs are nice too – not just the token blah/boring/mature/manang designs! I have purchased many bras and panties in the past from them – from lacy ones to more colorful ones to the more smooth t-shirt bra no-nonsense type. They offer options such as wired and non-wired bras, cotton/full panty/bikini panty/etc bottoms and their prices are all under Php1000. Their products often go on sale too – I remember I hoarded my favorite nude lacy bra when it was on sale for less than 500 pesos. Score!
Avon’s new product line called Body Illusion has two bra and two panty options – one is the Charlene underwire seamless bra and panty, with sizes going from 32AB to up to 40B in the color Tuscany, which I believe is a brown-nude. The other one, and the one that I was sent, was the Sonia Non-Wire Seamless Pull-on Bra and Panty. The bra and panties go from Small to XL, and is available in the color Blush, which is a pretty pink color.
The fabric is very soft and silky smooth. It actually feels great on the skin. Powered by Invisilite Technology, these underwear pieces are seamless – no stitches, no seams. Whatever fabric you wear – even silk, which I find is the most unforgiving of fabrics – you won’t have any visible bra/panty lines. I think that is essential if you wanna look pulled together because even the most expensive outfits doesn’t quite look as nice if there are VBLs and VPLs (Visible Bra Lines and Visible Panty Lines). This is definitely one of those “get shit done and feel/look fabulous while doing it” kinds of underwear – the ones that you don’t have to worry about and does not get in the way!
The Sonia bra is a pull-on bra, so much like gym bras, there are no clasps to fumble with. I have to say though, that because it is a Non-Wire bra, it doesn’t offer much in terms of pushing up, but surprisingly, it offers great support. It fits great too! The straps are adjustable and you can even adjust the back hooks if you want to transform it from a regular strap bra to a criss-cross strap bra. It is VERY comfortable, no digging on the sides or on the rib cage. You know how at the end of the day, you look forward to the time when you can take off your bra and breathe (and in some cases scream “FREEDOOOOM” as soon as you get it off – oh, you don’t do that? Just me? LOL okay)? I didn’t have that with this one because it was so darn comfortable! I loved wearing it, and more importantly, I felt good in it!
They are reasonably priced too! The bra is Php899 and the panty is Php299. I wish it came in different colors though, I would love a black one too; maybe even white. Hopefully they come out with more colors in the future. I see this as being one of my favorites because the comfort is amazing and the feel is great!
Here’s a quick video about the Body Illusions line from Avon. I love that they showcased beautiful, badass women characters in their ad!
