Simply Yours ‘Naturally Close’ and ‘Shapely Figures’ Strapless Bra Review

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).

Freya Active underwired sports bra: Bras for 28+ backs reviewed

This bra has really served me well: I’ve worn it on a charity fun run, for multiple gym trips and bike rides and has become somewhat of a staple in my collection. My first Freya Active was the underwired version and it has been a favourite from day one. It survived the gravel path and pot holes test effortlessly as well as being one of the first sports bras that I reach for when I’m about to embark on a health kick – but is it perfect?

Ewa Michalak

Ewa Michalak (also known as Effuniak) is a Polish brand which I have been curious about for a long while, but ordering from overseas as well as a lack of many reviews held me back, however when expert lingerie blogger Brittany over at Thin and Curvy reviewed them and gave a glowing review, I was finally persuaded to give them a go.

Curvy Kate ‘Portia’: Bra Review

This is the first time with Curvy Kate that I’ve actually been completely underwhelmed with a bra. I’ve been on the look out for a good black basic bra for a while now and I thought the Portia could have been ‘the one’. The design is basic and I feel like that is the point – the pink ribbon detail on the one I received adding a pop of colour which reminded me ever so slightly of the Freya Arabella. Whilst admittedly I was looking for a ‘basic’, my bras all tend to be something I love, something pretty, lacy and fun. Unfortunately I wasn’t drawn to the Portia (one of their oldest styles and yet I’ve only just reviewed it now) and upon receipt of one, I’m still not.
