Boux Avenue Alarna: Bra Review

Boux Avenue and I have never really got along. It’s true, I’ve written previously about their questionable in-store fitting service and previous reviews have had low scores.

In fact, whilst I’ve made a few recommendations to friends about trying their bras for size, I’ve near enough avoided entering a Boux Avenue store since my last blog post in 2012.

A return to Boux

Some of you may have read my recent post which told the sad tale of my experience in Boux Avenue’s fitting rooms, and an even more horrific tale of FullerFigureFullerBust’s 36H boobs in a silky 40FF bra.
