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”
Just imagine; it’s 6am, and you’re waking up on a freezing December morning – you can see your own breath in the room and the thought of leaving your duvet seems about as appealing as swimming with piranhas. Continue reading “Behind the Scenes at The IIYC Parfait by Affinitas Shoot”
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.

They’ve gotten into their bra and knickers and snapped their entry shots, they’ve submitted their five photos to Curvy Kate’s panel of judges, they’ve beaten over 1000 other curvy hopefuls to the top 30 and faced the public vote, they’ve been whittled down to the public’s top 10; been preened, pampered, backcombed, and snapped by a professional photographer at the top 10 photo shoot, and they’ve faced the public vote.

Cast your mind back to this time last year. I myself was shreiking in excitement to find that I’d made it to the final 30 of Curvy Kates infamous Star in a Bra competition. It felt amazing to be chosen from a group of 400 other curvy hopefuls and is something that really helped make this blog what it is today – full length body shot pictures and all!

As it was Australia Day last week – instead of celebrating in traditional Aussie fashion, we thought it would be the perfect time to get in touch with Star in a Bra model search winner Julia McLean. With only a few short weeks to go before the launch of Curvy Kate’s Star in a Bra competition, (Blimey, is it that time again already!?) We were eager to catch up with the brand’s latest victor Julia McLean who triumphed in the Australian ‘SIAB’.

Ultimo CEO Michelle Mone (OBE) has been giving sneak peeks for this campaign for weeks now and I have been champing at the bit to get a glimpse of their ‘real women’.
Although I don’t tend to agree with the whole ‘real women’ debate in general (see my ‘real women’ dictionary definition here) you can still get the drift of what is being intended here – models with more varied body shapes – I love to see what lingerie looks like on someone a bit more comparable to myself when buying, particularly online.
