TIAH REVIEWS | BEAU DAIQUIRI BODYSUIT

Posted in FASHION ON May 16, 2018


Mimi Holliday has been one of my favorite lingerie brands for over a decade. They consistently produce beautiful, interesting lingerie styles. The quality of both materials and construction is high, the fit is great. The aesthetic pleasure never comes at a compromise on comfort and functionality. But when living in Australia, I always found the brand hard to come by, so lucky for ya’ll it is now stocked at Porte-à-Vie!

Needless to say, with all this is mind, my Mimi expectations are high, but Beau Daiquiri doesn’t disappoint. Valentine’s-style, candy-conjuring, red and pink is my all-time favorite color combination. I am also partial to a heart motif and here, gorgeous little ones are expertly embroidered on delicate beige tulle to create a nude illusion. The little hearts appear to float, scattered across skin for a cute, whimsical effect. The ‘left-bare’ mid-section of this bodysuit, gives the appearance of a bra and brief, with the wear of a bodysuit.

Unlike many bodysuits, the crotch snaps on ‘Beau Daiquiri’ are actually comfortable and the garment itself is long enough in the torso for us tall gals. The brief-cut bottom does not ride up, wears well under pants, jeans, skirts, tops and dresses, and I think the diamond cut-out back is a nice addition.

I sized for cup (XL for my DD-E cup, in spite of AU10/US6 dress size) and found this detail, combined with the adjustable shoulder straps, allowed for the perfect fit. The cups are darted and underwired giving both support and, I found, a really beautiful bust shape. Mimi’s ‘Beau Daiquiri’ is a truly exceptional piece of lingerie, a must if you love a fun, ultra-feminine aesthetic, cuteness without infantility and would, in my opinion, make the perfect gift.
