Bravissimo and Being Refitted

I’ve done quite a few posts now about getting fitted for a new bra on the UK high street. In fact, it was the subject of the first blog post I ever published on Invest In Your Chest, back in 2010.

Help! My Boobs Have Shrunk

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.

IIYC x Parfait by Affinitas Spring: Our Creative Collaboration

It might still be too cold to be thinking about florals and bra straps on show, but the world of lingerie waits for no one; my 300 denier tights are still going strong, but Spring/Summer collections are just around the corner. Who cares about Christmas, it’s the most wonderful time of the year.

Pour Moi Promise Non Padded: Bra Review

I’ve been of the opinion, until now, that Pour Moi were the best thing since sliced bread, and without doubt my favourite inexpensive full cup lingerie brand.

Pour Moi Geometric Bra in Spearmint: Bra Review

I have recently gotten really tired of ALL my bras, so have been on a huge spending spree to give my lingerie drawer a bit of a refresh. Living in Bournemouth, there’s not much choice when it comes to bras in my size, and even less of a choice of reputable fitting outlets.

Independent Store Focus: Mabel & Jacks

On this blog you’ll notice that I will always include a link to where you can buy the products that I feature, just to make life a bit easier. I usually just search for a big online retailer who stocks the product in a large size range so that you’ll be most likely to be  Read More
