Pour Moi Amour Long Line Strapless: Bra Review

It’s not that often that I find a bra in my size that I find really sexy. I’m not actually that huge a fan of overly sexy lingerie and will rarely go out of my way to buy any, let alone wear any. I’m much more of a cute, pretty, glamorous, fun lingerie kind of girl (and not all at the same time).

For this reason it’s pretty unusual for me to pick something up that’s both bright red and lacy, but when I saw Pour Moi’s Amour Longline in my local independent lingerie boutique, I couldn’t resist. Continue reading “Pour Moi Amour Long Line Strapless: Bra Review”

Cleo Lily Balconette: Bra Review

Cleo are, for me, a pretty failsafe brand and I tend to find that most of their items fit me pretty well (with quite a few achieving pretty impressive scores in their reviews!).

It wasn’t until Cleo’s Meg got a pretty lacklustre 7/10 that I started to doubt in Cleo’s flawlessness.

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?
