Giveaway worth RM400+: La Senza Body Kiss Exclusive Blogger Party & Crazy Sale!

To know me is to know that I love La Senza, and wouldn't trust any other with my intimates. Before La Senza, lingerie shopping was basically store-hopping from one to another, getting the top support from a store and getting the pretty bottoms somewhere else. (I can tell you this makes matching difficult!) But I've been a convert since at least early 2008. I could answer everyone's curious questions about the different collections they have and the differences between them and suggest the best line for them to try from, so I'm super excited to introduce the new Body Kiss line!

If you're too excited to hear the details about the sales and GIVEAWAY WORTH MORE THAN RM400 to read through this post, scroll to the bottom for the good stuff! The sale is TOMORROW, ladies!

I was invited to the exclusive Body Kiss party on the 21st May. If you're not convinced yet that I'm La Senza's #1 fan, know that I actually took public transportation ON MY OWN for the first time, from Hospital Putrajaya all the way to KLCC. And it took a lot of practicing the routes with 4 different friends because I have absolutely zero sense of direction. (But that ERL is seriously something! I need an excuse to go on it again!)

I made it! I wore a butterfly headband to show my love! LOL

The event kicked off with bra fitting. The correct bra size is so important, but 3/4 get it wrong! Ladies, would you want to walk around your whole life with shoes that are too small or too big? Your ladies need a home that fits them right, too. The most common mistake is when your bra band is riding up at your back (should be even all round). I'd suggest switching to your smaller-band sister size. ie 36C --> 34D. Obviously if you're getting quadraboobs, your bra size is too small! But the less extreme signs to look out for are the straps digging into your flesh, and the gore not resting flat against your front, or the presence of side boobs (your ladies peeking out of the cups from the side). I could go on. Conclusion: get fitted!

1. UNDER BUST: Measure under the bust, pulling the tape comfortably snug.
2. OVER BUST: Measure around the fullest part of the bust, placing two fingers pointing up and out in under the tape. 

Once you have the two numbers, compare it to this chart to find your La Senza size. Each store has a different measuring chart, so it's better to get fitted at every store you go to.

The pretty manicure is Farisha's. We paired up to measure each other, and were later assisted by the La Senza team. I know right, talk about an ice breaker! LOL. This is how you use this chart. So the underbust measures 29.5", and the overbust is 37". You would look at the underbust first to find the column it belongs to -- band size 34 and 36, if your round it up to 30". Then you find the over bust from those two columns -- 34D, 36C. These are sister sizes that I was referring to earlier. The closest fit would be the 34D, but you can try on both sizes for the most comfortable fit. Don't forget to adjust the bra straps when trying it on, by the way.

The new La Senza Body Kiss collection!
One of my favorite things about it is the range of colors!

I've been looking for turquoise bras!
Don't you just love this mood board?? 

La Senza had a fun game for us. We had to search their drawers for the most number of lollipops for a chance to get 30 seconds to sweep absolutely anything from the Body Kiss range into a big bag - with the catch that you get to keep only what's in your size. I only got two T_T. Farah is so lucky! She won with 4 lollipops! We all had adrenaline rushing throughout that 30 seconds, yelling at her to grab everything but she took the time to pick and choose the colors, haha. She's lucky I like her so much, otherwise she'd be getting my hate mail. Or more accurately, envy mail. Goes like this. Dear Farrah, I envy you. Got it? Love, Sabrina. LOL! I poisoned her to scare her husband by showing up with a guilty face and big shopping bags and going, Alamak sorry, too pretty I couldn't resist. Sure pengsan when he sees how many pieces she had in the bag (14!). 

Looking so creepily excited next to the winner. Notice my grabby right hand, people! 

La Senza let me choose one Body Kiss bra. Hooray! 

The Body Kiss
  • I think this collection is perfect as a t-shirt bra because it's so smooth with the microfibres. It's seamless with no visible lines. But I advise you not to take the ones with the rhinestones embedded unless they're only at the underside of the cup. Sure they look pretty, but when placed at the top it looks like you have warts or ghastly chest pimples, and at the middle? Just scandalous. What with how smooth it is otherwise, it looks like you're letting loose. Seems a bit too literal with the invisibly sexy tagline, haha.
  • The bra comes in their most popular cut which is the plunge. It's a fan favourite for those who wear low cut tops.
  • It comes in 7 colors. If you're into the neon trend (which I'm not fashionable enough to pull off), you're in luck! All the summer colors are really pretty, I can't think of any colors that I'd suggest for them to add. I love the dark turquoise. 
  • It has a push up level of 2. La Senza reckons that it would be a good level for casual daily wear, with just the right amount of lift. I couldn't stop fondling the push-up bit because it was so smooo-ooth. Did you know their push up level goes up to a 4?? Seriously. So with that in mind, I'd say a 2 is relatively work-appropriate and not too dramatic. 
  • Cushioned underwire! This has to be my favorite feature. I find underwires absolutely necessary for support, but call it what it is - wires under your ladies! The cushioning makes it so much more comfortable.
  • The Body Kiss line is made to be light, smooth and invisible, so comfortable you barely feel like you're wearing anything. All of the bras come with matchback panties
  • The prices for the bras range from RM149-RM179.



Because women, like fish, are attracted to shiny objects

The Body Kiss bottoms in colours to match - plain and lacy

I had to show the green one again, it's so ethereal and mermaid-like and mine. I adore the new laces!
If you haven't been to La Senza in awhile and want to see some of what's in store, here you go:
On the top row is the Beyond Cleavage (Level 3), bottom row Hello Sugar (Level 4). That pink lace is so pretty!

Isn't the store pretty? At the bottom is the ♥ Cotton line.
La Senza then treated us to dinner at The Apartment!
Simple but pretty table decor - that's Illy the ever cheerful, laughing at absolutely everything. Met her for the first time! Really warm and friendly

The Apartment soup, Piquant Cream Grilled Chicken, and Chocolate Mousse.

The food was really good! The chicken was a bit dry, but I loved it despite that. It was HUGE, I couldn't finish the portion. You should definitely come by and give it a try. The Chocolate Mousse was super good too! My only gripe was the drink was too sweet. If you do go over there, do let me know what else is good? Off to a promising start :)

We were given bunny ears and a goodie bag!

I met some new faces too!

The Sabrinas. Same name, same baking passion.

With Wiida, pretty kan?

Now have I got a treat for you girls. I've been very busy with hospital and I'll stay busy for the next two months, so you won't see me around much. So to make up for lost time and share the love, I thought I'd do a giveaway with the La Senza goodies that I got! AND I'm adding to them even more goodies I bought. These babies I'm giving away are worth more than RM400! Pictured is 36C, but if don't worry if that's not your size. I promise I'll go and get your size once you get fitted! I don't want you to be wearing the wrong size just because you won it, haha. Same goes with the size S panties (not pictured here because they're at my other home, but I promise they're all gorgeous because I have awesome taste in lingerie! Hint: Lots of lace)

*3 pretty pairs of La Senza panties not pictured

    1. Mirene, that's such an exaggeration but thank you so much! It's no problem at all, I love sharing these girly things :D

      I actually didn't manage to go to the sale :,( I was stuck without transportation.

      The decision is actually not mine, it's a totally random draw. The more tasks you complete and points you get, the better your chances! Good luck dear!

  5. We have the same idea, where I start my LaSenza back in 2008 and did not switch to others. I always wish to stay near LaSenza store but I am living far away and I traveled miles to get them. I wish to join their event but I will only be going Kl next week. Hey, and thanks for sharing info on LaSenza. And the size about is my perfect size too. ^^ Ahahaha..Have a nice day, dear.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. That's so unfortunate! Where do you stay? But all that traveling sure shows your dedication. Good lingerie is too important, isn't it? You wear it every single day, comfort is everything. I'm very near to all the outlets, but I haven't gone as much as I'd like to this year.

      It seems to be a popular size, so convenient hahah :D

    1. Hey! Thanks so much! Lol you're right - the comfort does make the skin deep beauty tagline possible. With so many references to the choice of colors, I'm starting to wonder if I should let the winner choose the color of her choice too?

  15. Hi, hmmm...i never wear La Senza before as i always thought they do not have any size that fit me. And i am shy to ask people to measure for me.
    BUt after reading your post,i really feel like trying their bras and panties

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. You really should. You can measure yourself at home, and consult the chart to find your size. (I know how insanely embarrassed I am during bra fitting to have people measure me LOL) Then just go to any of their outlets and start by trying on the size, then go up and down a size for the perfect fit ;)

  34. I still remember the first time I went to LaSenza and the feeling of being overwhelmed by those gorgeous bras and sexy lacey panties. I felt like buying the whole store! I was really happy with the panties I purchased (although I was a little worried at first - never tried lacey panties before) and I would love to get more of them. I do find them to be a tad bit out of my budget, since I'm still studying and not earning yet. I would love to win this giveaway! =)

    1. Overwhelmed is right! I still remember my first time too :) And yeah, I started by getting myself lots of panties too. I'm also a student btw, I've just garnered a massive collection over time. There's just always an excuse to buy more, haha. Good luck!
