…it’s an M&S silk chemise. Designed by Rosie Huntington Whiteley no less. So I may not look like a supermodel in it (boo hiss!), but if you’ve left your Christmas shopping a little late and are looking for something special for the lady in your life but have no idea where to start, it might be worth popping down to your local Marks & Sparks.
Shopping for bras can be a nightmare for most of us DD+ ladies, but how about after fighting breast cancer? The market can be notoriously frumpy, unattractive, uncomfortable with little or no choice of styles or colours. I asked TV’s Trisha Goddard about her bad experiences with lingerie shopping with her small back size and DD+ bust.
For many people, sports bras are missing from their underwear drawer since they’re often (always) not that pretty to look at and not seen to be an essential item. I can understand this reasoning – why invest in the latest sports bra technology when you could get some pretty frillies instead? Article in the Daily Express 28th Sept 2011 Well since I started ‘exercising’ *shudders* I’ve really noticed a difference since I started wearing sports bras. I’ve never been much of a ‘sports girl’ – which I can hand-on-heart say is at least partially down to being ill equipped.
M&S suggest lingerie to suit your skin tone British high street giant Marks and Spencer have introduced a ‘lingerie to suit your skin tone’ application on their website which suggests lingerie to suit different skin tones. Whilst this is something you can notice ‘oh that really suits her skin tone’ – I can’t say it is ever something which crosses my mind as I purchase in the same way as clothing.
Ann Summers’ frankly genius but of PR (for those able to take a joke) offered ‘a weekend package with something sweeter than expected’; a ‘main’ (a lingerie set) a ‘side’ (adult accessory) and a ‘dessert’ (flavoured lubricant). Although a very tricky and risky stunt to pull, you can’t help but respect them for having the guts to go ahead with it.
Marks & Spencer have never been particularly well known on Invest in your Chest for their fitting… they got one of the lowest scores in my High Street Fitting Challenge, however this is perhaps an all-new low for the high street giant. If the model of the campaign has extra room (perhaps a handy storage solution?) does this not highlight a bad fit?
Next up in the series is my friend Georgina. She wears a 36A but admits that she is unconvinced this is correct and is well overdue a fitting! Nonetheless she has a petite décolletage and is proud of it!
