Is there anybody who is not aware of my love of colour green? There is?
Ava definitely knows of my affection towards greens, which is why the brand decided to offer a proverbial lamb for my critique slaugther in form of Haily; richly embroidered soft bra. It definitely did stir quite a murmur between my female office collegaues, all of whom wanted to examine the bra and oof in delight over it.

Hailey to piękny soft z side supportem, którego estetykę porównałabym do bogatych sari z Półwyspu Indyjskiego: pionowe hafty, romboidalne ozdoby ‘nanizane’ na nitki morskiego szycia, coś pięknego. Bardzo podoba mi się ta stylistyka i marzy mi się Hailey w wersji różowej, bo przypomina mi bardzo flirtellową Ariel, tylko w wersji z erratą konstrukcyjną 😉
Hailey is a pretty side support soft bra, which design bring rich sarees from Indian Peninsula to mind: vertical emboridery, diamond-shaped decor ‘threaded’ onto teal stitching, a beauty indeed. I really love the style and I hope Hailey will come back in bright fuchsia, as it reminds me of Flirtelle’s Ariel, just with a slight cut update 😉
Na mostku mamy kwadratowy klejnocik na sznureczku z mniejszych diamencików. Kurczę, przy takim dizajnie marzyłby mi się jakiś zielonkawiec albo podwójna kokardka! No i niestety obawiam się, że nie trzyma się za sprawnie; wisiorek zgubił mi się przy następnym założeniu.There is a squareish rhinestone on the gore, dangling one a line of smaller stones. Gee, which such style I would really like to have something green there or a double bow! And I fear that the pendant is not sewn on very sturdily; I lost it the next time I have put Hailey on after this photoshoot.
Dopasowanie jest raczej typowe – nigdy nie miałam żadnej Avy przed recenzowaniem Hailey, i 65G było dobrym strzałem. Obwód pasuje na pierwsza haftkę, miseczki mieszczą cały biust, delikatnie marszcząc się na mniejszej piersi. Nigdy nie widziałam zresztą takiego obwodu: został uszyty z dwóch warstw szorstkiej (ale przyjemnej dla ciała) dzianiny, które trzymają całość ciałka w ryzach i wyglądają na bardzo porządne.
The fit is rather standard – I have never had an Ava bra before I got Hailey and 65G was a good choice. The band can be fastened no problem on the first set of hooks, the cups are filled, though the on the smaller boob I ahve some wrinkling. I have never seen such a band before: it is made from two layers of rugged or rough fabric (it is still very soft on the skin) that keep everything in check and look very sturdy.
I have nothing to complain about when it comes to shaping. The boobs are roundish-pointish in a natural way, which might not be perfect, but the side support has one huge plus; it decreases sideways sway significantly. I am one of the girls who has to grab the boobage when I climb up the stairs even in a very sturdy soft bra – when wearing Hailey I can simply forget about it.
The comfort is almost absolute: the only thing to point out here is the elastic band that finishes the lower edge of the band, because it tends to roll in and scratch a bit, especially when I wiggle around a lot instead of sitting at the desk for eight straight hours. The gore tack and does not dig in, and there is no side boning, hooray!
The cups have three vertical seams and one horizontal seam, the latter flattening the boobs a little. On my small breasts you can definitely notice that in form of a pointier shape, but significantly bigger-boobed Stanikomania does not experience that at all. I am not claiming here that the horizontal seam in an issue in general; Ava’s side support cut is a good one for a lot of breasts, but it does not agree which my pocket-sized boobs.
The fastening does not lose shape and two rows of hooks are definitely enough to keep the band at bay. This is how the fastening looks like after month of exploitation and one night’s sleep in Hailey (tough time at work – I just forgot to take it off and slept in my clothes).
Matching briefs are very very transparent and were not spared the embroidery treatment. In the back a strategically placed seam underlines the bum very pleasantly. I am really happy that Ava does not cut costs when it comes to bottoms and they are as flirty and cute as their bras. It often happens that the designer ‘creates; the matching panties by choosing a stretchy fabric that matches the band of the bra and adding a bow – twin of the one from the gore – and here we go, bottoms done. Such designer laziness is not okay with Ava, and rightly so. My 103 cm hips fit into size Large well. The leg holes are finished with loopy elastic band, which fortunately does not cut into thights as the elastic in some other panties *cough* Freya *cough*.
Hailey is about 100 PLN (roughly $27) in Polish online stores – I think we can easily and gladly award it the medal of good value / price ratio for an especially pretty, accessible and relatively cheap bra. As always, we would like to knidly reming you all that voting with your wallets expands the size tables and cut portfolio of the brands you support and Ava deserves that. We are good friends since Magda’s Crystal review and we are definitely going to be an online place to gossip about new styles and look at them more closely. To give you something to wait for – our reader who has been chosen to test out Hailey in 65F is doing just that right now and will share her opinion soon enough. Don’t you worry, we will notify you once that happens!
Well then – jai ho?
