Tempting Tuesdays: A Marlies Dekkers Giveaway!

Tuesdays will feature a lustworthy lingerie set and a suggested retailer. I think we all need a little something beautiful to at least look at to get us through the week. Hope you love them as much as I do!

Marlies Dekkers Fall 2011 + A Giveaway!

Okay, so I have a confession to make. I never tried on a Marlies Dekkers bra until this past Sunday. There, I said it and I'm not ashamed. Like, let's be serious: the bras are kind of intimidating. Straps galore and padded cups out the wazoo are a lot for a girl who prefers bralettes & cute printed things, not to mention who has A-cup ladybags that don't need a whole lotta support.

But after staring at some press materials for the past two months or so (and a few photos on Twitter by Alison at Faire Frou Frou of how she styled her Marlies Dekkers), I finally marched my exhausted bum over to Bergdorfs and tried one on. My instant reaction: "WHOA MAMA!" (Yeah, you're allowed to say that at Bergdorfs. No one kicked me out, at least). I was trying on a 32B because there weren't any more A's, so it didn't even really fit me and I was still wowed by how amazing it felt on.

It seems pretty genius how she's created a bra that comes in sizes up to an F-cup and is so supportive, yet has push-up styles and the insane strappiness becomes more of a decorative detail for the smaller ladies who don't need all that support. I'm a believer now, Marlies Dekkers. I'm a believer.

Soooo! To celebrate my conversion and the mini milestone of reaching 150 fans on Facebook (not bad for six months, right?) Marlies Dekkers is generously sponsoring a giveaway! Follow the instructions below, and the winner will receive a bra & panty set.

Marlies Dekkers Padded Push-up Bra & Thong - inspired by the naves in the Notre Dame de Paris

I loved this set from the Fall 2011 collection, "The Muse": Afterglow Balcony Bra & Thong, inspired by the "palest terracotta and golden-toned marble of [Florence] at sunset". LOVE.

How adorable is this top? Florence Pima Cotton Batwing Top. So Sonia Rykiel-esque.

I'll be posting a few more sets in the next couple of weeks, so keep your eyes peeled! Not that you can miss them, they're insane.

Marlies Dekkers is available at Bergdorf Goodman & Neiman Marcus.
