Review of the Ewa Michalak S Turkusowe Kwiaty (70K)

I mentioned in my review of the Ewa Michalak S Gazeta that I usually take a 70K (32K) in my Ewa Michalak S bras, but I haven’t actually reviewed any of these yet! So, today I thought I would review another of my S styles, the S Turkusowe Kwiaty!

1 - Ewa Michalak S Turkutsowe Kwiaty 70K (32K)

The Turkusowe Kwiaty is a beautifully sweet and summery piece, featuring a delectable floral in bubblegum shades of blue and pink, with smaller pops of bluebell, sunny yellow, blush pink and rose red. The straps, band elastic and bows are bubblegum blue, while the cups are trimmed with bright pink lace, which I think is a really fun and eye-catching combination! Continue reading

Review of the Curvy Kate Tease in Black/Blush (32J, 14)

Those of you who have been readers for a long time might remember my love for Curvy Kate’s Showgirl collections – particularly the Tease Me and Thrill Me styles! Unfortunately, these styles only went to a 30J and sister sizes, and as a 30JJ/K, they were always a bit too small (not that that ever stopped me!). Luckily for me, not too long ago, the Tease Me was reinvented and re-released as the Curvy Kate Tease, in a new-and-improved size range of 28-38 D-J.

I usually wear a 30K in Curvy Kate’s unpadded bras, however, since this size isn’t available, I decided to try it out in a 32J with size 14 briefs. I’m also wearing the set here with my Lovehoney Flaunt Me robe (reviewed here) – I think the scalloped lace trims match this set perfectly! Continue reading

Fallout Inspired Lingerie

Last year, the gaming community exploded with the news that the much-loved Fallout series would be receiving a new sequel. I’ve been thinking about doing a series of Fallout inspired lingerie for a while now, and with the first DLC release coming up, it seemed like the perfect time!

So, first up, Vault Boy! Vault Boy is an iconic mascot for the Fallout franchise, usually shown wearing the standard-issue vault jumpsuit in shades of bright blue and yellow.

Burlesque Inspiration with the Ewa Michalak S Gazeta

A couple of years ago, Ewa Michalak released a particular style which received an unbelievable amount of attention: the CHP Gazeta. This burlesque-inspired, newspaper print piece sold out incredibly quickly, and it’s still highly coveted throughout the lingerie community today. While the CHP has a smaller size range than some of Ewa’s other pieces, Ewa Michalak offers the option for many of her styles to be custom-made in another cut for a small fee. I was lucky enough to get my hands on an S Gazeta, which uses the same fabrics and detailing, but in a construction specifically designed for larger breasts.

With how sought-after this style is, I wasn’t able to get this bra in my preferred size of 70K (32K), so this is a 60L (28L). Continue reading

Moda Preview: Rochella AW16

My last preview of the season is going to be Rochella! I actually didn’t get a chance to visit Rochella at the SIL, so I instead decided to pop into last week’s Moda show to see them. So, this is going to be my only Moda preview for this season! After looking through Rochella’s SS16 launch collection, I also got a sneak peek at what’s to come next season. All of the lovely details Rochella used in SS16 return again, with all of these pieces featuring high quality Italian satin, 18ct gold plated hardware, soft lavender linings, and beautiful embroidery. And, as always, Rochella will be donating a percentage of all profits to The Eve Appeal. So, here’s Rochella AW16!

Rochella Vintage Floral Bra and Brief

First up is this surprisingly Spring-esque piece, the Vintage Floral. This is the lightest piece of the collection, featuring a duck egg blue base with a delicate pink floral. Like many of the styles in the SS16 collection, the upper cup appears to be sheer illusion net, which should become invisible against all skin tones. I think this is one style my guest blogger Rachael will be a big fan of! Continue reading
