Braless in Brasil: Follow Fridays Blogger Interview

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.

The Only Way is Essex: Jessica Wright’s Lingerie Boutique

Any TOWIE fan will be well aware that the hit TV series’ Jessica Wright has embarked on the venture of opening her own lingerie boutique. The naysayers may ask ‘what does a girl from Essex know about owning her own lingerie business?’, but as the face of luxury lingerie brand Alexis Smith, Jessica has more than the average insight into the world of lingerie. Her gorgeous little shop in Loughton, Essex, (a stone’s throw from Lydia Bright’s cake, fashion and gift shop Bella Sorella) is a luxury boutique experience with the likes of Mimi Holiday by Damaris, Miss Mandalay, Baci Lingerie, Blue Bella, By Caprice and of course, Alexis Smith.

H&M: Companies using ‘Real Women’ as models

There has been a re-release of the uproar surrounding the ‘Real Women’ debate on the blogosphere of late,  (for examples see here  here and here!). I’ve written on this subject in the past, but today I saw a story which has made me double-take. H&M’s ‘completely virtual’ swimwear models are an all-new extreme of ‘body snark’; with models who really aren’t ‘Real Women’ being used to display the products. The creepy mannequin-like faces and uncannily realistic bodies are a bit of a slap in the face to body acceptance activists as they go full circle on the ‘Real Women’ debate which has indeed gone a little too far now.

One of Coppafeel’s posters – one of the most philanthropic boob tubes I’ve ever seen. Kristin Hallenga, founder and CEO of Coppafeel is such an inspirational lady.

Coppafeel is a charity which stives to raise awareness about checking your breasts regularly for any signs of change and to act quickly should any be found.

Freya Active underwired sports bra: Bras for 28+ backs reviewed

This bra has really served me well: I’ve worn it on a charity fun run, for multiple gym trips and bike rides and has become somewhat of a staple in my collection. My first Freya Active was the underwired version and it has been a favourite from day one. It survived the gravel path and pot holes test effortlessly as well as being one of the first sports bras that I reach for when I’m about to embark on a health kick – but is it perfect?
