Boux Avenue Alarna: Bra Review

boux-avenue-alarna-balconette-bra-black

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. 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.

Pour Moi Geometric Bra in Spearmint: Bra Review

Pour-Moi-Spearmint-Geometric-Bra

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 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.

Freya Tropics: Bra Review

Hello dear readers – you may be surprised to see that today’s post is a bra review, after what seems like forever since I posted my last one. Thankfully, it’s a good’un and one of the nicest bras I’ve seen from Freya Lingerie in quite a while – in the form of Freya Tropics. I roped in a pal to help me with this one as she has recently changed bra size and is somewhat of a Freya Deco junkie so I wanted to help her try something else.

Curvy Kate Horizon Halterneck Bikini Review

I have to say, with weather like we’re having in the UK at the moment (and long may it continue, pretty please!) I have to admit that most days I’ve rarely been out of a bikini, whether I’ve been on the beach or in the office. When you’re a bit, ahem, hot and sweaty, there’s no bra that feels quite as comfortable as a bikini, and since mine rarely get an airing, I’ve been using any excuse to actually wear them for a change! Not only this, I’ve also seen this as a pretty stellar excuse to get my hands on some more – and the Curvy Kate Horizon Halterneck bikini was one of the sets at the top of my list.

Cleo by Panache ‘Melissa’: Bra Review

Since the sun is shining and it’s SUCH a beautiful day here in the UK (that’s right folks, not a cloudy in the sky here in Blighty!), I was rummaging around in my ‘to review’ pile (some delights and some disasters in there let’s put it that way) and thought – now’s not the time to get negative – it’s time to share my latest lingerie love with you. So forgive me, I’m about to sip some Pimms in my suntrap back garden and wax lyrical about the lovely Melissa by Cleo.

Tutti Rouge Betty: Bra Review

After pretty much falling in love with Tutti Rouge’s ‘Liliana’ (so darn pretty!), when I got my hands on the Tutti Rouge Betty (the set that I was perhaps looking forward to most out of Tutti Rouge’s SS13 offerings) I can’t help but feel that, despite her gorgeous exterior, unfortunately she’s prettier than she is perfect. That said, I love her all the same. Why, I hear you ask?

Freya Hello Dolly: Bra Review

Freya Hello Dolly Review

Before you all have a heart attack – yes I am posting my fourth review of the week: the Freya Holly Dolly. After being a bit MIA for the past few months (sorry about that!) I’m finally back on this blogging malarky, and I’m sure you can imagine I’ve got quite a backlog of products to review for you guys. This Spring/Summer has been so strong in the full-bust-lingerie world, so I’ve picked up loads of things that I simply couldn’t resist – and here is one of them!
