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. Continue reading “Bravissimo and Being Refitted”
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. Continue reading “IIYC x Parfait by Affinitas Spring: Our Creative Collaboration”
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.
I wouldn’t say that this isn’t completely the case, but my love has been dinted by the Promise – it simply didn’t, ahem, live up to the ‘promise’ of other Pour Moi bras I’ve tried. Continue reading “Pour Moi Promise Non Padded: Bra Review”
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: Cleo by Panache are one of my favourite bra brands like, ever. Their young, fresh and cute ranges are gorgeous, but even more importantly, wearable.
Elle Macpherson’s lingerie line has always been on my list of brands to try. Whilst a lot of the items are exceedingly grown up for the likes of me, sometimes we all need a good basic, ‘grown up’ set in our lingerie drawers. Am I right?
Well, in the Elle Macpherson Intimates Dentelle Pink Dogwood Underwire Bra, I thought I’d found my perfect set. It’s a bright, crisp white in stunning soft lace material, with a subtle injection of colour with the baby pink ribbon. Continue reading “Elle MacPherson Intimates ‘Dentelle’: Bra Review”
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. It wasn’t until a recent trip to Bristol when I spotted a super-cute fluoro orange bikini caught my eye the week before my holiday that I popped in. Continue reading “Boux Avenue Alarna: 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. Continue reading “Pour Moi Geometric Bra in Spearmint: Bra Review”
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 able to pick one up.
I’ll admit that, from an independent retailer’s perspective, this isn’t always the best approach to take. Independent retailers tend to focus heavily on the in store experience. Many don’t have a website, either because they want to focus on women coming into the store and having a fitting with a real expert, or because, let’s face it, not every small business has the capacity to operate as an online retailer, let alone compete with the likes of Figleaves and Debenhams.
