Back in July, I went down to London for the weekend. While I was there, there was one place I knew I had to visit: Bravissimo! Bravissimo stock a huge range of styles and sizes, and their fitting service is regarded as one of the best in the UK. So, when I had some time, I headed down to Covent Garden to get fitted and try on some different styles.
The Panache Sport is a style which I’ve written about on the blog before, and one which I absolutely adore. I have had the grey colourway on my wishlist for a long time, so I was very pleased when the wonderful Large Cup Lingerie kindly offered to gift it to me. I have previously found that the level of support and comfort the Sport offers is outstanding, and the grey colourway is no exception.
The Panache Sport is available in 28 DD-H, 30 D-H, 32 C-H, 34-38 B-H, and 40 D-GG, so as before, I opted to try this colourway in a 32H. As always with Large Cup Lingerie, the bra was sent out swiftly and arrived beautifully wrapped in tissue paper (a little detail I always love!). I did notice some differences in sizing between this and my other colourways, which is mainly the reason I decided to write a mini-review for this colourway. Continue reading
A couple of weeks ago, I wrote about the bras I tried while looking for my size in Curvy Kate Gia (full post here). While I didn’t keep any of them, trying them made me more confident about the size I would need. So, when I saw AW13′s Purple/Black colourway on sale at Brastop a couple of months ago, I decided to give her another chance.
As before, I went for the 30K, and I am pleased to say that the Purple/Black colourway was everything I expected and more. Continue reading
Curvy Kate are a fairly young brand in the full-bust world, but they are constantly coming out with new styles and revamping the older ones. The Gia is a style that was introduced in Autumn 2012, and I’ve been eyeing it since. However, at the start of my bra-fitting journey, I had found that I did not get along with many of Curvy Kate’s earlier styles, and with plenty of other bras that fit me at a 30JJ, I saw no reason to take a risk…until I went up to a 30K/KK about a year ago, and suddenly found that my options became much more limited. So, seeing it on sale in August last year, I decided to try out both the Seafoam and Cherry/Blush colourways. This is mostly a quick comparison of the bras I tried while looking for a good fit, so won’t be quite as detailed as my usual reviews.
If you follow me on any social media you may have seen this already, so this is mainly a post to reach my subscribers, casual readers, and anyone who missed it before.
I’ve recently been thinking that I want to be sure I’m getting a good balance of good posts, as well as ensuring my blog is accessible, readable, and helpful. I sometimes worry that I write confusingly or focus too much (or too little) on certain things, so I would just like to check in and make sure I am on the same page as all of you.
So, to do the above, I’ve made a quick, anonymous survey on google docs. There are 10 questions, most of which are multiple choice, and all of which are optional.
It should only take a minute, and any responses would be very helpful. If any of you could fill it out, I would really appreciate it. You can find the survey here: bit.ly/1ixeX3H
