If you’ve been following me on Instagram or Twitter you may have seen my incessant mentions of My Fitness Pal and going to the gym more often than I go to the bathroom. I’ve been following this updated gym routine since January (I know, a New Year’s Resolution that I’ve actually stuck to for longer than 2 weeks!), and I’m pretty chuffed to have dropped a dress size and lost 9kg in just three months.
Cleo are, for me, a pretty failsafe brand and I tend to find that most of their items fit me pretty well (with quite a few achieving pretty impressive scores in their reviews!). It wasn’t until Cleo’s Meg got a pretty lacklustre 7/10 that I started to doubt in Cleo’s flawlessness. I was especially disappointed as the Meg style became the base for many beautiful colourways – often some of my favourite styles from each Cleo collection.
Next up in today’s Follow Fridays interview series is the delightful June from Braless in Brasil – one of my go-to blogs for bra problem solving, in-depth information and intellectual opinions on the world of bras – yes, there really is such a thing. June’s blog really is wealth of information. Each of her posts are jam-packed full of text, but it’s always well worth reading and I always learn something every time I stop by. Plus, June is currently pregnant so her recent extra twist of maternity information is really worth checking out if you’re expecting.
I have to admit, this was one of the most fun blog posts I’ve written in a long time. It basically consisted of online shopping, but without the budget or guilt. Best thing ever! I’ve simply put together the top 10 bras that I would pick if I were to ask for lingerie for Christmas. You may not agree with my choices, but it may give you some ideas of what to ask Santa for, or even what to pick up for your significant other.
So this may seem a little out of character and very unlike me, but last week I fell in love with Bravissimo’s Lucine. I’ve never actually done a Bravissimo brand bra review on here before, and considering how much I talk about their fitting service, that might come as a bit of a surprise. It’s only because of past bast experiences – the otherwise much loved Dotty Spot and Alana bras are a hideous fail on me – I’d kind of written them off and gone for the branded styles. It was only when I went in last week for a fitting and was fitted into a few ‘own brand’ styles that I found myself reintroduced and left as a complete convert, and that was almost entirely down to this bra.
This post doubles up as my entry to Undercover Lingerista’s bloggiversary competition, as well as a last minute reminder for those who are yet to enter. There is a huge pool of prizes and you only have until midnight tonight, so get typing! I’ve picked the Panache Cleo ‘George’ as the bra that changed my life for two reasons.
Bravissimo Pepperberry, Oxford Circus Yesterday I met up with fellow lingerie blogger Kitty Lingerista in London’s Oxford Street so naturally we went along to Bravissimo on Margaret Street for a fitting. Wanting to compare experiences and bra tips as we both wear a 28FF but both have very different body types and breast shapes it was certainly an interesting experience going shopping with her!
