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”

Bra Review: Curvy Kate Florence Balcony, 30E

The results of my Twitter poll are in and you’ve voted for me to review another Curvy Kate bra. I’ve chosen my second favorite balcony style from my Curvy Kate haul in a lovely springtime color. The Florence balcony bra in powder blue is my perfect pick for Easter. Let’s have a look. Continue reading “Bra Review: Curvy Kate Florence Balcony, 30E”

Bra Review: Curvy Kate Belle Balcony, 30E

After exclusively wearing lightly lined and padded bras basically forever, this year I ordered my first set of unlined bras from various brands. I’ve had mixed results wading into unlined territory, but I’m definitely on a mission to find a style that works for me. Belle was part of a Curvy Kate trying spree that I indulged in. Let’s see how it went. Continue reading “Bra Review: Curvy Kate Belle Balcony, 30E”

A Comexim fit odyssey, Part III: Victoria 3HC – 70HH, 65J & 65HH comparison

I began my first Comexim journey with the Victoria 3HC almost 9 months ago now. The bra I received was beautiful, but didn’t fit, mostly because the band ran abnormally tight. This post will explain what I did next – I simply wasn’t prepared to give up on Victoria! Continue reading “A Comexim fit odyssey, Part III: Victoria 3HC – 70HH, 65J & 65HH comparison”

Bra Review: Bravissimo Etta Longline, 28F/G & Bravissimo Satine Plunge, 28FF

Bra Review: Comexim Elena Plunge, 28G (60HH)

A lot of my reviews end up focusing on bras that don’t quite fit, which is unsurprising because 1) hardly anything ever fits me and 2) as soon as I find a bra that fits great, my size seems to change and I have to start all over again. Finding that perfect fit is simply too elusive! But today I’d like to review a bra that actually fit: my first Comexim plunge bra, the surprising Elena. Continue reading “Bra Review: Comexim Elena Plunge, 28G (60HH)”

Spotlight on The Fitting Room & Bra Review: Freya Fearne Half Cup, 28G

Freya half cups were my first bras that truly fit and they will always hold a special place in my heart. When I saw previews of the Freya Fearne half cup for AW16, I fell in love with the print and the understated details. My love of this bra also serendipitously brought me in touch with Clare, owner of The Fitting Room, a lingerie boutique in Stevenage, UK.

Winter coats for fuller-bust petites: do they exist?

With winter in full swing around here (seriously, it’s been nothing but rain and freezing temperatures for the past two weeks), I find myself suffering from cold weather blues. As in, my hands and feet are quite literally turning blue. Winter is a tough time for me because, as a Reynaud’s syndrome sufferer, my extremities get uncomfortably cold and numb when the temperatures drop. Even inside toasty boots and two layers of gloves, my hands and feet stay cold most of the time. A super-warm coat is an essential for me, especially when I’m going to be outdoors a lot.  Continue reading “Winter coats for fuller-bust petites: do they exist?”
