Bra Review: Bali Comfort Revolution Shaping Wirefree (3488), Smart Size S

I’ve never reviewed a “matrix sized” bra from a department store before… until now! Since finding out my actual (comfortable) bra size and learning that I was sized out of most brands, I’ve relied wholly upon UK and Polish fuller bust brands. Matrix and/or S/M/L sizes have long been off my radar entirely. I have also been so preoccupied with finding supportive, wired bras that fit that I have rarely made space in my bradrobe for wireless options other than sports bras. Then some things changed …

Valentine’s Day lingerie: beauty and bras makeup matchmaker edition

Personally, I don’t celebrate Valentine’s Day because my partner thinks it’s dumb. 🙂 And anyway, when it comes to lingerie, I buy and wear what I choose for myself to feel amazing. I don’t tend to gravitate towards sexy lingerie that isn’t practical the rest of the year. Still, I enjoy the idea of Valentine’s Day lingerie for its romantic themes and design inspiration, and to peruse fun, beautiful and/or functional pieces to add to my collection, especially since traditional “Valentine” colors like red and black are perennially underrepresented in my bradrobe.

Bra Review: Freya Wildfire Plunge, 30DD

If you follow my posts, then you know by now that I have a tendency to buy some fabulous-looking bras for the prettiness alone.

Bra Review: Victoria Sport Lightweight by Victoria Secret, 32D & 32DD

I’ve never reviewed anything by Victoria Secret before, and if you had asked me a year or two ago, I probably wouldn’t have considered it a possibility. However, by some unforeseen planetary alignment, I can now sister-size myself just within the size range of this retail giant. When I visited the US at the end of the summer, I had left my sports bras in the UK, so I took the opportunity to cash in on free shipping in the Victoria’s Secret semi-annual sale.

Bra Review: Gorsenia Margo K280 padded balconette, 30E/65E & OtherEden.co.uk Giveaway!

I’m excited to introduce another Polish lingerie brand in this post.

Bra hunting in Spain + Oysho Bralette & Leggings Reviews

I’m going to try something a little different for this post. I recently got back from a visit Spain, and while I visit the country fairly often, until now I’ve never had a chance to go bra or lingerie shopping when I’ve been there as my itinerary is usually packed, which is another way of saying that I hardly ever get a moment to myself to just go browsing for pretty things. This time I managed to sneak away for a couple hours to see what I could find. Continue reading “Bra hunting in Spain + Oysho Bralette & Leggings Reviews”
