Triumph Endless Comfort Wire-Free Bra Review

Hi all,

Welcome to another vintage style bra review. Today I am reviewing the Endless Comfort Wire-Free bra by Triumph. I have previously reviewed and adored their Poesie bra so I definitely had high hopes for this.

I bought this bra as I was desperately searching for a wire-free bra is my local stores -read: Farmers and Bendon. I have recently gone up a cup size and grown to despise wired bras so I just really wanted a new bra that fit my criteria.

I was drawn to this bra particularly because it was black, most wire-free bras in NZ are either white, beige or made of flimsy lace and aren’t made in over a C cup. Also with a name like Endless Comfort I couldn’t not try it!

I really love the subtle brocade of this fabric, I’m never one for a plain plain bra and this accompanied with the shiny semi-sheer neckline really add some interest. The inside of the cups is lined with a soft knit fabric which feels lovely and soft when worn.

A close up on the detail of the bra. The tiny bow is so sweet and such a cute little addition. The seams are all beautifully neat and sewn to lay flat against the skin, they are not scratchy or itchy. In fact neither is the elastic, all types used have luxuriously soft plush backs.

EC2

At first I was a little hesitant to buy it due to it’s thick straps. I always shy away from the ‘comfort shoulder’ style bras as it isn’t something that I require in a bra and I don’t want it to feel too bulky of ruin the lines. These straps are slightly wider over the shoulder but don’t have any padding which I like, they feel very comfortable and never dig in whatsoever!

EC5

This bra has a slightly pointed look which I love for everyday wear. It’s not as sharp as the What Katie Did Padded Bullet Bra, nor as round as the Lovable Lacey and Seamless Soft Cup. I believe I’ve mentioned before that I am not a fan of the spherical breast look and it’s nice to have something easily available that doesn’t fit that mould.

Edit: The size range for this bra is 12D-24DD with many of the band sizes going up to an F cup

I bought the size 12DD as they don’t go down to a 10 band size, I would normally be a 10E. I find the band to not be too loose and the thickness of the stretch really helps that. I find the cup size to be a great fit on me, I tried the 12D and it was just a bit too tight in the cups. I definitely think these cups would suit a large variety of breast shapes as the cups do have a bit of stretch to them. The cups are also full coverage, so the neckline is a little high but I don’t wear a lot of larger necklines anyway.

EC4

The fabric used for the wings is extremely comfortable and it has a nice thick stretch to it. Having three hooks and eyes is also sooo much more comfortable and supportive, and these have a lovely plush back. The care and composition details are actually on a removable tag, so they can be easily removed. The only tag on the inside is a small woven ‘Triumph’ label which I have not found scratchy, or actually noticed at all!

The Triumph website claims that this bra “will have you wanting to wear it everyday” and over the weekend I was moving (a very long and intense three days) it was actually the only bra I reached for.

EC1

I bought this bra for the regular price of $69.99 which is a pretty average bra price I would say. This has definitely been worth it for me. I wear this bra more than any of my other’s currently as it is just so darn comfortable (endlessly one might say) and has such a shape that I love.

I have to admit this is another bra which I have accidentally gone to bed wearing so if that doesn’t sell you I don’t know what will. If you are looking for another vintage style bra to try or even just want to try wire-free a spin I definitely recommend this.

Triumph Poesie Lingerie Review

Hi all,

Time for another lingerie review! I was in Farmers the other day trying to find some new lingerie (I haven’t purchased any for several months). I was mainly looking in the clearance section to see if there was any Dita Von Teese I might have missed. I suddenly thought ‘I should try something new and different’. So I scuttled my way to the other end of the lingerie department to the Triumph section, full of beige and white (not my thing) Granny style underwear (very much my thing).

After a little while of browsing I settled on buying the Triumph Poesie Support Bra in Beige and the matching Triumph Cotton and Lace Full Brief in Beige. I was drawn to these as I could see the bra had a pointed cup shape, rather than the modern rounded shape, and do I really need to explain the high-waisted briefs?

*If you see some lines from my clothing it’s because I took these pictures after a full work day.

This bra starts at a 12B and goes up to a 24DD. There are no A cups and only go up to a maximum of DD in back sizes. I am usually a 10D sand I ended up purchasing it in a size 14B and taking in the wings as there was no 12C available at the time.

ling6

I find the cups fit really well for me. They are made with a non stretch lace with a sheer non-stretch lining so they do not lose or change shape. At the bottom of each cup there is also a soft – almost felt piece which helps to lift and support each breast. The cups are also separate and have a non-stretch frame that they sit in.

If it looks at all scratchy – it isn’t. I’m actually finding this bra my most comfortable at the moment, as I’m really noticing the wires in my regulars. This bra is seriously comfortable, I’ve had no digging in of anything and the lack of wires means I can sit in odd positions and still be comfy.

I actually took the sides in really lazily, I just did a row of black stitching and left the excess fabric in. At some point I may re-do it properly by moving the elastics round so there’s no break. You can also see the gorgeous cup shape in these pictures!

ling7

As you can see taking in the sides has meant the straps are very close to the underarms. I don’t notice it too badly, but if you need to have a bra taken in it’s best to be only 1 sister size away. The straps are also attached closer to the center on the front than regular bras which stops them slipping off my shoulders.

I think this bra is nice and looks really sweet. It has a very true vintage look which I adore! The colour is described as ‘beige’ but I think it’s actually better described as a very pale peach. It has quite pink undertones and isn’t as harsh as I find a lot of beige to be.

ling5

Also I am obsessed with the cup shape. This is my IDEAL shape. I find the rounded shape to be really boring and this makes my vintage clothes fit better. It’s also not super pointed, I think it’s very natural and subtle under regular clothing.

ling2

The briefs look really long in person, but when I tried them on I found they actually did not reach my natural waist! It was a total surprise! I’m still happy with them though, the non lace parts are 100% cotton which makes them suuuper comfy. Also it’s summer at the moment here and I’ve found them great for combating the heat.

ling11

Here’s a silly picture of my showing off the points!

The bra costs $54.95 and the brief $15.95, so I think this is a great way to try out vintage style lingerie for a cheaper price. I wish this was available in black but unfortunately only few of Triumph’s styles come in it. I find this bra to be super comfortable and the briefs are too. Ideally you would buy your regular size but as they don’t do larger cups or smaller backs you may have to go for a sister size.

Hope you enjoyed this post! I know I enjoy the lingerie!
