I really liked the look of the Bondara Flirt Wet Look and Mesh Cami, Thong and Stockings when I saw first saw it on the their website, so I was delighted when Bondara agreed to send it to me in exchange for an honest review. I love clothes and I love lingerie, as much even as boots and shoes so, as much as I also love sex toys, it it was exciting to be able to review something different. As luck would have it, we were heading away for a few days so I hoped that it would come in time for me to try it out and also take some pictures.
My items arrived in a lovely Bondara box a couple of days later, which meant that they could definitely come along on our mini break. Although the packaging doesn’t affect the item, I always think that it helps to set the tone for me and I was feeling excited as I took my first peek and looked inside, unwrapping the tissue paper to reveal the cami. My first impression was positive. The cami is one size and although it looked neat, I could see that it was really stretchy and that there would be some give in it.
I am 5’7” and usually wear a size 8 or 10 so, although the size chart states that it fits a size 6-14, I think it would depend pretty much on your actual shape. I like things to feel fitted but am also self-conscious of my body so I don’t like them to be digging in to me in a way which isn’t flattering. As it was, I slipped into it and was really pleased. I have quite a small bust so if you were larger then that might be an issue. I wear a 34 bra as I like them to be looser and am usually a B or a C depending on the cut.
The first thing I have to say is that the cami is super comfortable and I got a positive reaction from HL straight away! Often what looks good on the model doesn’t work so well in real life but thankfully the stretchy nature of this piece meant that it not only felt really comfortable, but the bands didn’t dig in and sat well on my body. The wet look leather gave it a sort of BDSM feel that he was also a fan of. I had it on for quite a while as we wanted to make them most of the venue for photos and I felt good in it so it was a winner as far as we were concerned.
The mesh is pretty fine so it felt smooth and soft next to my skin and the bands of wet look leather gave it a much more structured look and feel. I prefer to leave something to the imagination, especially in pictures, so the positioning of the bands across the nipples really suited me. The combination of the halter neck and the leather gave it a fetish look without it being too extreme. The set also came with a matching thong and a pair of fishnet stockings, so was a complete outfit in one.
The shape of the detailing works really well as there is no cup support. Personally I like this as it allows for a cleaner line, but I would usually choose under-wiring in order to add some shape. My boobs were never large but post children then are less perky than previously, so the contour of the lines on the top helped to make it look more aesthetic. I want to look slim but sexy so I felt that this piece was good in that there was nothing to dig in but it still had some shape.
The contours continued around the shape at the bottom which seemed to frame me nicely. As you can see from the picture it is shaped up at the front which is flattering and also allows you to see the front of the thong which came with it. The suspender clips are fully adjustable and the fishnet lace top stockings which complete the outfit and are shown here, go well and are a nice touch. In terms of materials, the cami is 90% Polyester, 10% Nylon and is handwash. Although this can be a bind, I prefer to wash my lingerie by hand anyway as I find that the machine can be harsh on delicates.
All in all, I would say that retailing at £34.99 the ‘Bondara Flirt Wet Look and Mesh Cami Thong and Stockings’ is a good deal for a set which is a lovely quality and looks fab. The marketing describes ‘sexy black wet look straps that wrap around the curves of your body, accentuating your hips and breasts for an impossible-to-resist finish..‘ We were away with friends when we took these pictures and everyone was very complimentary in terms of my irresistibly, so wearing it did really give me a boost. All in all, it is a definite thumbs up from me.

I really like clothes and dressing up. I think as we age it can become more difficult to feel good about our bodies though and I wanted to focus on showing that it is possible to still feel good and look sexy as an older woman with a real body. Follow the link for more posts about Feeling Good
