Fifi Chachnil is a brand that makes you feel like like a doll, a Fifi doll! And if you are ever graced with her presence you will see that no one represents the brand better. Style-wise it’s very much frou-frou sixties, pastel and bubblegum hues. Her designs are floaty and are made for singing, dancing, twirling and frolicking. Just like Fifi herself. Most of the Fifi Chachnil items are made in Paris at the atelier on Rue Jean-Jacques Rousseau.
I’m wearing the “Cocktail” bra which is available in sizes 85B-95D. Though the brand does offer custom orders if your size and style are not available. This set comes in an array of colours such as pink, black, chamade and red but I fell in love with the violet colourway which was part of the FW18 collection. A full-coverage bra which is made of nylon adorned with white lace trimming and features a dainty little white bow placed at the centre gore.
I purchased the bra in my usual size, 34D but with this style, I find I could have gone a size down. I’m quite ok with the cups but a smaller band could fit a little more snug. I would definitely suggest going down in the band if you are interested in purchasing the cocktail bra in the same fabric.
What I especially loved about this design are the thick straps. The straps are soft but durable, and they don’t leave indents on my skin at the end of the day, I also don’t have to re-adjust anything as the sliders stay in place.
I’ve worn this bra quite a few times for long periods and it’s really comfortable to wear all day, I forget that I’m wearing anything. I also love the sheerness of the fabric. It makes it a perfect bra for the warmer weather, but wear with caution as the fabric is very delicate it can easily be snagged by your nails or jewellery.
Look at these cuties, the “Allons Bon” culottes are a full bikini style brief that features a gathered skirt. I love this style and chose them because I’ve yet to have anything similar in my lingerie collection, and they are really fun to wear.
Sizing does run small on these and there is no gusset on the briefs. Most of my bottoms from Fifi are a size 38 but I sized up and purchased these in a size 40. To be honest I could have even gone for the 42. Available in sizes 36-42.
My first experience shopping at Fifi was at one of their boutiques in Paris, and since then I have absolutely fallen in love with the dollhouse! It’s all in the little details, the boutiques really do transport you to a special place.
From the beautiful candy-coloured dresses, the frou-frou frilly curtains to the lamps and the carpet. It’s truly an experience one should not miss when in Paris. Not to mention all the staff are complete gems!
Since then I’ve always purchased through email. I know some people find this method old fashioned, but I find that it creates a unique experience and it allows the brand to get to know and understand it’s customers. Which makes it feel a little more exclusive.
When it comes to luxury packaging Fifi Chachnil is hands down the winner for me. Your items will be wrapped in tissue paper and placed inside this pretty box with the pink logo and pink satin ribbon handles. When purchasing online the box comes inside a sturdy packaging box to ensure your order won’t be damaged in transit.
I hope I’ve given you a glimpse into the dollhouse and you get to visit it for yourself.
Till the next set.
