Pearlle Lingerie review

*Note: these items were not purchased with my own money. My opinions are still my own.
On this journey of lingerie loves and explorations I tend to trend towards instagram for my inspiration. I love scrolling through the luxury lingerie, handcarafted lingerie, and new names in the industry.
Pearlle, a new lingerie company, reached out and asked for me to review and model their lingerie. I was estatic and said yes. We corresponded and I chose three sets to model and review. Visting their website was the first thing I did. I was happy to find a nice clean and easy to use format.
Pearlle is still brand new [within the first year!] and they have 17 beautiful sets of bras and panties. Not wanting to exploit their kindness, I ended up choosing the Emile bralette, Charlotte demi, and the Naught-ia push-up. Like most things I choose I chose one for me, one that my husband would like, and one thats a new style.
Just a week or so later my package came in the mail. I opened my package and pulled out my lace loves wrapped tenderly in tissue paper, a romantically tied ribbon, gold sticker and a hand written Thank you from Pearlle.
Prior to recieving my package my husband and I had been traveling and finally arriving home at midnight. I was exhausted, I told myself that I would wait and try everything on in the morning. One set after the other, and bedroom runway walk for my husband, I giddily tried on all of my new Pearlle intimates.
EMILE BRALETTE & PANTY:
This set was one I chose for me! Being smaller chested, I typically gravitate towards bralettes or bras that have little support, fabric or shape. This bralette was all the comfort, and a little surprise of extra. On first glance this set looks like any other typical bralette and panty. Its got the lace, the straps and extra frills, but what I really love is the back.
When I chose this set I didn’t realize that the back had this elaborate hook-and-eye closure. Before trying on, my brain instantly went to “oh dang, this is going to constrain me”. I choose barrettes for the free-ness, however, I am happy to say that these 4 clasps only made me feel more supported. Since the band is wide it spreads the work over more surface area of my body, giving that extra comfort I was looking for. The added bonus now is that I can prance around in a bralette and still be very sexy when undressing at night.
Make no mistake, the panties play their part too. I mean, imagine a set where one piece doesn’t quite fit your jam, then you only have half a set. I love that the cross ribbon design is carried down fro the bra to the panty. The cotton lining makes it soft on my skin and the elastic on the sides do not dig in. The only thing that’s worse than lingerie that’s too big, is lingerie that leaves red marks on your body.
This cozy set really set the standards for the rest of Pearlle. She found a way to make comfort sexy, and keep it comfortable. The lace on this piece is soft and elastic so it gives when I move, or if my body changes from day to day. I am happy to report that the hardware [clasps and strap adjusters] is made of metal! I am well assured that my strap won’t break or fail when doing one of my random activities of yoga, arial silks, or goofing off.

CHARLOTTE DEMI & PANTY:
This choice was going for something a little different than what’s already in my wardrobe. Since I have smaller breasts this demi-bra was an ideal choice as I don’t require full support or coverage of my breast. This set is very comfortable, but at my fault, I ordered the bra just slightly too big [it will probably be perfect on my cycle though!] and the panties a little small. This is in no way an impact on Pearlle, just me learning my true sizes. In fact, this is a good opportunity for us to remember that all companies vary and luckily for Pearlle shoppers that have a sweet return policy. Also, I have learned my ass can be a lot for some panties [people?] to handle.
See model bio for size help.
If you have fuller breasts and or wide shoulders I would highly recommend this bra. Even though it’s a demi, it really does have great support and comfort. For smaller chested gals, or those that like a lift, I discovered my breasts with this bra. The shape inside the cup pushes my breasts towards the middle and voila! Pokeable cleavage! The middle straps of sexy also accentuate the breast’s curve and draw the eyes to the meat.
Let’s keep going about the sexy details on this set. The lace: a gorgeous extra touch that turns this bra from plain, to fancy Charlotte. Even the touch of lace on the panties add just the right amount of spice to a deceptively comfortable piece. One comment to the seamstress, I wish the lace seams matched with the point of the bra. For me, it would have made the straps sit a little better on my body, and perhaps more ergonomic for a breast shape in general. The straps would function a little better for me too if the lace was sewn just a hair to the outside on the front of the piece. Again, for a fuller breast and wider chest/ shoulders, I think this would be just fine.
Okay, panty talk now. besides my butt being too big for the small, they are extremely comfortable. The “invisible” cut on the edge does not dig in and lays flat on the skin. I love love love the fact that the tag is printed on the inside. No extra cutting or worry that I’ll cut my panty when trying to remove a tag. The inner lining is not noticeable to my skin, or hardly my eye! That is how seamless this panty is. If you’re ordering this panty, may I suggest going up a size [possibly] to ensure comfort… for the bra, use the smaller sister size 🙂

NAUGH-TIA PUSH-UP & PANTY:
Here’s the piece chosen for my man, but also, well, its Naughtia! If I had a quarter for every time someone said that to me…
This lingerie set certainly lives up to the name. With sexy frills and extras around every curve, adjustable straps with cute gold hardware, this is my favorite piece out of the three. When I put it on I was momentary lost in all the straps, but a quick glance on Pearlle’s website reminded me the way this design works.
The first moment I fell in love with this bra was when I noticed the adorable sleeve caps on the shoulder. Even when it bunches slightly under clothing the sleeves aren’t a bother, just adorable as hell when you take your shirt off.
While in the middle of our photoshoot a visitor stopped by which required the throwing-on of clothing very quickly. As I was standing talking to our visitor I realized that even though I was wearing a strapped dress with an open back none of my bra straps were visible. It was awesome. What I love about lingerie is that it’s a surprise. Nobody but you has to know what naughty things you wear underneath, this bra shape makes the surprise possible. One moment you’re wearing your normal get up, next thing you know you’re a sexy temptress underneath it all.
The belly straps were the confusing part, but again, very intuitive to understand, or cheat like me and look at a picture. the very adjustable straps ensure that these sexy lines will fit your body as seen on screen. There’s nothing more annoying than purchasing something that requires only that model body to fit right. Naughtia bra fits all!
Let’s get down to the bottom with the Naughtia set, literally. The panties are incredibly comfortable and true to size. The lace is semi-elastic so even if my body changes, or moves, the panties accommodate my life. I personally LOVE full coverage, especially lace or mesh panties because fo me I get the comfort, for onlookers they get the sexy lace and a mystery ass.
With both the bra and panty Pearlle has done a great job with symmetrical lace. This attention to details and patters tell me that the designer and seamstress are legit serious about their products. Just like with the other sets, the hardware on this is made of metal, black metal on the shoulder straps and clasps and sexy shinny clasps on the belly straps.

OVERALL DESIGNER THOUGHTS: I vote GO PEARLLE! Having owned my own retail store I know how challenging it can be to run such an operation and in my opinion, she is killing it.
The company looks, feels, and truly operates and a unified family. They have great policies on returns, shipping and overall super easy to purchase from. Details like metal hardware and symmetrical lace shows me that this company is serious about feeling sexy, and making their clients feel sexy. For the price I think you’d be hard-pressed to find another company who equals this quality. In this case the client is certainly getting out on top.
The packaging alone, with the tied ribbon and tissue wrapped products, shows me that this is a quality company. On their own they’ve done a great job with social media, and lingerie conventions. Pearlle is in the game now and I surely will be fishing from her pond more in the future. <3
