Big boobs are both a blessing and a curse. Finding pretty, supportive lingerie is a nightmare at times. Enter Scantilly. This branch of Curvy Kate specialises in gorgeous sexy lingerie from DD to HH cups. The designs are classy, sexy and bold. I genuinely struggle to choose when on their site.
I fell in love with the Knock Out set. I’m not usually a fan of nude colours but Knock Out is striking. The parcel arrived fast and I can confirm customer service is excellent. Wrapped in pretty tissue paper it felt luxurious even opening it.
Knock Out comes in a handful of different pieces, a bra, suspender belt, thong and high waisted briefs. All in the same latte and black colour with rose gold accents. This colour combo is gorgeous and puts me in mind of 50’s pin ups.
High Waist Briefs
The Scantilly Knock Out Brief are high waist and look super comfy. They sport large cut outs on either hip and have black trim forming lines along the edging. At first the cut outs worry me. Each of these segments is joined by a rose gold ring that sits in the middle of the top front edge of the briefs. Just below this ring sits a tiny delicate rose gold CK charm. The material is slightly sheer and this is extremely sexy.
Despite my initial fears about cut outs they are extremely comfortable and flattering. The high waist is very retro and the size is bang on. Teamed with the bra this is a stunning combo that would be comfortable enough to wear every day.
Plunge BraThe Scantilly Knock Out Plunge Bra is made from the same sheer Latte material with black trim. The black trim runs around the cup and directly up the front and across where your nipple will sit, affording you some modesty from the sheer fabric. This creates a modern cage strapping look to the vintage beauty of the set. In the centre of the cups sits another rose gold ring joining them together and a tiny CK rose gold charm, which is a lovely detail.
The plunge cups create an amazing cleavage which looks knock out under dresses, ironically given the name. The Knock Out bra gives great lines under clothing and is very wearable. This is not just a bedroom bra.
The shoulder straps are wide and black, with rose gold adjusters and accents. They are very supportive and comfortable, which was reassuring as the sheer fabric will not give you any oomph in the lift department. There is an additional black halter neck strap which looks stunning and adds extra support.
The back strap is wide and there are three rows of glinting rose gold hook and eye fasteners to help you adjust fit to the perfect size. Sizes below FF will have two rows of fasteners. I find Scantilly band sizes are a smidge on the tight side so bear this in mind when sizing. Apart from that the cup fit was perfect, probably the best fitting bra I’ve ever had.
As well as the briefs Scantilly have released a thong to go with the Knock Out set. The Scantilly Knock Out Thong is like the high waist briefs, with a cut out to each side only this time sitting lower on the body. The black trim gives the same effect as on the briefs. If anything, it looks even sexier lower down the abdomen, almost hinting at what lies beneath.
The Scantilly Knock Out thong is made from the same sheer Latte material and is extremely comfortable to wear. I can wear mine all day and it doesn’t even feel like lingerie if I’m being honest. The fit is amazing. The panels are held together at the centre of the front by a rose gold ring and dressed with a tiny rose gold CK charm.
The Scantilly Knock Out Suspender is fastened at the back with two rows of rose gold hook and eye fasteners and is made from the same Latte sheer fabric. It’s trimmed with black casing and has a tiny rose gold CK charm in the centre of the top trim. The suspenders are black in colour and this is striking when they are clipped over the thong. They are long in length and fully adjustable which is great for the vertically challenged such as myself.
I could wax lyrical about Scantilly suspender clips all day if I’m brutally honest. They are so easy to fasten and never pop open. The rose gold metal clips add a real touch of vintage luxury and they are simply the best suspenders I’ve come across. Incredibly wearable, I’m more than happy to wear this under my day dresses in confident knowledge they are not going to ping open every time I climb stairs or sit down.
The bottom of the Scantilly Knock Out suspender belt has a small black strap in the centre which can be fastened to the thong or briefs. The little strap threads through the rose gold ring on the knickers and attaches back to itself. I LOVE this feature it looks amazing and really adds something to Knock Out.
It’s A Knock Out
When worn as a full set the impact of Knock Out is as suggested by the name. The nude colours of the sheer fabric take on a blush tone when worn over my skin and I love the striking clean black lines. My favourite thing about this set is it’s so wearable. It’s not just for the bedroom and so often with beautiful lingerie that is the case. You can mix and match the various Scantilly Knock Out pieces to add variety to the look.
The Scantilly Knock Out set is great value for money in my opinion. The Knock Out Bra is priced at £38.00, high waist brief is £20.00, thong is £18.00 and the suspender belt is £22.00. Any woman with large boobs will tell you £38.00 is reasonable for a well-fitting quality bra and this one looks amazing on too.
Scantilly Knock Out is a stunning, wearable lingerie separates set and I love it. You can buy Knock Out and other gorgeous lingerie sets at Curvy Kate
