Affinitas Intimates Carol Hipster

This week on Intimate Guide we are happy to feature a lingerie brand that has found that delicate balance between FUN and SEXY. Flipping through the Affinitas Intimates Spring/Summer ’09 catalogue is like watching my underwear desires come true. Cute styles, great prices, comfort, soft fabrics, feminine touches – I guess like my own candy store! For example, here is a photo of their thong collection:

Because I can’t send each of you an Affinitas Intimates catalogue, I’ll feature some products this week that I have worn, washed and worn again – and give you the true scoop as to how they look and feel.

Affinitas Intimates designs bras, panties, camisoles, babydolls, chemises and bustiers. “Our collections are made to be stylish, comfortable, well-made and most importantly well-fitting,” they say. Their bras retail for $23-$35, panties from $8-$18, camisoles $25-$58, and babydolls, chemises and bustiers for $25-$45.

The collection utilizes high-quality, soft materials sourced from all over the world to provide maximum comfort, such as cotton, microfiber, satin, French embroidered laces and even technologically advanced materials that are seamless and label free. Their bras and bustiers span 30-38 A-DD sizes, with all other items sized XS-XL. I find their items to run one size smaller than expected, so I recommend ordering a size up.

carol hipster and braThe Affinitas Carol collection includes a balconet bra, thong, cami, padded bra and hipster panty of 78% Nylon, 14% Polyester, 8% Spandex. It comes in 4 different colors: pink, black, ivory and lavender. The Affinitas Intimates Carol Balcony Bra is a molded underwire with full support and coverage. It features contrasting lace that accents the bustline.
The Carol Hipster Boyshort in lavender is the panty I tried (shown). They are extermely lightweight and didn’t show through a pencil skirt or cotton shorts. The fabric has super sheer stripes – making them sexier than a traditional sporty hipster. The pretty lace accents along the waistband and legs were comfortable – not itchy at all, and with a bit of stretch so they don’t dig in. The lace washed beautifully – both in my washing machine and handwashed in Soak Flora Detergent. 

A Carol Thong is also available. It’s a sexy low-rise with lace along the front, back, and waistband.

It’s not easy to find pretty purple underwear. I know because purple panties are  favorite of mine. And these are certainly at the very top of my list!

    The problem I had with this panty is that the cotton panel in the crotch started to roll up after a few washings, and I had to throw them away because the part that rolled up kept rubbing against me funny – down there…
