Moda time is one of my favourite times of year. There’s nothing I love more than popping around the stalls and seeing what my favourite brands have to offer in the coming seasons – or even better – finding a new favourite brand to drool over! This year was no different, with a fair few ‘must haves’ from the likes of Gossard, Tutti Rouge, Freya, Panache and more.
I have to say, with weather like we’re having in the UK at the moment (and long may it continue, pretty please!) I have to admit that most days I’ve rarely been out of a bikini, whether I’ve been on the beach or in the office. When you’re a bit, ahem, hot and sweaty, there’s no bra that feels quite as comfortable as a bikini, and since mine rarely get an airing, I’ve been using any excuse to actually wear them for a change!
Whilst we’re on the subject of Moda Exhibitions, let me share with you another brand which I feel have a great season ahead of them – and that’s good old faithfuls, Curvy Kate. Again, since their awesome YouTube video (anyone seeing a theme lately of these sneak preview videos popping up everywhere?!), this Autumn/Winter collection has gotten Becky and I rather excited. Plus, can I just take a moment to stress the excitement at the thought of a babydoll up to a K cup!?
Star in a Bra is a competition that I’ve followed since the beginning – I remember back when Lauren Colfer and Laura Butler stormed their year’s competitions and showed us all how it was done. I’ve been everything from a spectating fellow Curvy Kate fan, to a rejected entrant, to a top 30 finalist to a judge. So I think it’s safe to say I’ve seen the competition from every possible angle.
I’m no fitting expert and have never claimed to be, but I’ve tried on a LOT of bras on both myself and other women and have developed quite an eye for what makes a ‘good’ bra for me and a lot of other women, and what doesn’t. I have recently had a huge clear out of my lingerie wardrobe, first getting rid of the ones which are clearly not my size or that I’d fallen out of love with, but secondly I made myself try on everything that was left (admittedly still quite a fair pile – oops!) and only kept those that truly FELT amazing.
Hello, I’m Cheryl Warner, and I’m addicted to Swimwear Designer. The social media boffins at Curvy Kate have handed over the ‘creative edge’ to their customers, and asked them to design some fantasy swimwear. Not only is the Facebook app hella fun, every entry you create gives you a chance to win the brand’s next season 13-piece swimwear collection, which is particularly yum.
