One of the things that SJ warned me about when moving was that it’s really hard to buy pants. She was right! It’s oddly difficult to find matching sets of bras and pants here (at least in the shops I went to) and I was starting to panic a bit that I would have to *gasp* wear non matching sets. This was a real concern, especially since Jess seems to like chomping on bras.
I idly browsed over to Boux Avenue* and found that not only could I order from my favourite brand to the US, but that they do free delivery over $50, and they deal with any customs and fees. I’ve been a fan of Boux Avenue since way before they opened up in Bristol 5 years ago
I picked up the Amber Blossom bra* (with matching giant pants) which was in the sale for £15 for both, the Aleena bra and pants set* for £19.50 (the pants were free!) and the Chloe bra and shorts set* for £28.50. In total, I spent £63, which if you’re over a DD cup, you’ll know that it is fairly easy to spend about that much on just one set!
Getting three sets of bra and pants for the cost of one set was pretty awesome, but when I placed the order at 11pm Wednesday my time, I really didn’t expect to have the gift wrapped box in my hands (well, on the doorstep) by 1pm Friday. I recommended them when I was in the UK, but now I really recommend…what’s more than recommend? Super recommend?… them now as an US based expat!
