Despite getting my body out regularly on the internet, like most girls I’m really not that confident about my body, especially after a bit of post-Uni weight gain. Whilst I used to be able to slip on a body con and rock it with confidence, these days I’m left feeling a bit out of shape and conscious of every curve. Now, I’m all up for curvy figures and body celebration, and I won’t be heading over to Skinny Gossip for any ‘thinspo’ any time soon, but I also like to feel that I’m under control, toned-looking and feel like all my lumps are in the right places. Cue Aunty Gok.
Well it’s not strictly a bra, although it does also come as a standard lingerie set! So as this blog post goes live, Cheryl (the birthday girl!) will be joining some other wonderful lingerie bloggers at a breakfast to launch a new collection from Simply Yours with the man himself, Gok Wan. And what will I be doing? Getting ready to have surgery on my eye, woe is me! Despite my misery, I thought it was perfect timing to review my favourite piece from the Gok Wan collection at Simply Yours. Say hello to the Osaka body!
Simply Yours are a fantastic place to go to buy lingerie due their large size range (especially for larger bands and cup sizes) and great choice of brands and styles. They have a handy ‘buy now pay later’ payment option which I must admit I often exploit, and it’s particularly handy if you’re not 100% which size you’ll need. Their returns service is exemplary and customer service very good, which is always a great foundation for any retailer.
Last month I posted the exciting news that Simply Yours were going to tap into the plus size strapless bras market and were to release a strapless bra which goes all the way up to a K cup. With limited information released when I wrote this blog, I was not sure whether the bra would be made in my size or even in a size which would be greatly appreciated amongst my circle of friends (one being a 30HH and one a 30K).
Simply Yours are sponsoring my ’30k Blog Giveaway’ so in anticipation I thought I’d do a big post showcasing just how great this company are. Generously offering some samples for me to try – I’ve gathered a motley crew of different dress sizes and cup sizes to highlight how the curve-savvy brand cater for the smaller and fuller bust. Stocking a 28-58 A-L cup, Simply Yours have one of the best size ranges available on the market.
Hello my lovely readers, The day has finally come! Overnight I passed the 30 thousand milestone of views on my blog – not bad for something I started in October 2010! I’m so happy and proud and have had such fun (and hard work) from my efforts and enjoyed every minute of the researching, photo-taking, investigating and most of all talking to you guys.
