Victoria's Secret: Vintage Victoria Push-Up Review

[Okay so first off, sorry if today seems like a Victoria's Secret overload! I haven't seen any coupons pop into my inbox, and out of respect for waiting for the polls to end, I'm holding off posting anything that has to do with the stores up for voting.]

Victoria's Secret launched their Vintage Victoria line not too long ago, and like pretty much everything else I've reviewed, I loved it! As usual, I went back and forth on buying them, but they went on sale, from $45 down to $34, so I bought a few, taking advantage of some free shipping promotion and dollars off.

Victoria's Secret describes the bra (item #226-443) as such:

A collection of intimates for every boudoir. Push-up.
  • Swell: Padded for dramatic lift. Level 3. With inserts.
  • Underwire cups.
  • Adjustable straps.
  • Back closure.
  • Imported nylon/spandex.
When they finally came, I was pretty excited. I had ordered 3 colors: Soft Pink (H25), which is really a nude color with light pink accents, Pale Aqua (360), and Pale Yellow (G23). The bra and these colors are just as pretty in real life as pictured online and in the catalog. It is very soft and feminine looking. The fabric is very smooth, but is not the sleek microfiber of some of their other bras.

As for the fit, this bra fits fairly true-to-size, but if you are on the bigger end of your size, you might want to consider sizing up (either bust or cup size), because this bra gives you a considerable amount of lift. The inserts are removable though, which is nice, depending on how much cleavage you want to show. If you are on the lower end of your size, this bra is a great fit.

Aside from that, the bow detailing is nice, and the contrasting fabric on the bra and straps is also a very sweet touch. The Blush Pink (434) bra has black straps, and the Dusty Rose (S36) has lighter pink straps.

I won't be posting any IRL pictures of myself wearing this bra, but I would be happy to post pictures of just the bras themselves if anyone is interested in getting a closer look. I would definitely recommend this bra if you are looking for a new one, or just looking to spoil yourself and buy something pretty!
