I fear I have a confession to make. I’m becoming addicted to Collectif Clothing. It’s terrible, I know. But their clothes are wonderfully boob-friendly! And they keep having all these sales. And I do adore polka dots. So, since I keep spending money at Collectif, I’ve decided I might as well justify it somewhat by sharing my recent purchases here 😉 I will probably split this into 3 or 4 separate posts, to spread out my numerous orders.
When I bought my Dietrich swing trench a few months ago, I also decided to buy a couple of basics for my wardrobe, starting with the famous Dolores Tops.
Urkye are a Polish boob-friendly clothes brand. Though they only officially launched in June 2012, Ula has been documenting her creations online since September 2009. She has a passion for creating new things, something which is very clear from her sewing blog!
Offering a variety of tops, dresses and cardigans, Urkye definitely fill a gap in the big-boob-market for more casual clothing. I particularly love the Kieska dress – the lack of pockets in most women’s clothes annoys me no end, so this is hugely appealing to me! Continue reading →
I have recently been persuaded to join a local choir for a Christmas concert, meaning I had to hunt out a smart white shirt for the occasion. Eep. Luckily, with options from brands such as Pepperberry, Urkye, Carissa Rose and Campell & Kate, this isn’t the daunting task it was once. Taking into account size range, price and the fact it had to be plain white, I chose to try out BiuBiu’s Vanity Fair, which came to £53 for two shirts, including delivery to the UK.
Going by the tailored clothing size chart, with 109cm bust, 75cm waist, I would ideally need a 38BBBB. Rather than risking buttons pinging off mid-concert in a 38BBB, I went for a 40BBB to get enough bust room, meaning it’s slightly looser in the body than I’d prefer. However, I definitely need every inch of space in the bust, so I think I made the right choice! Continue reading →
I must admit, I’ve been putting this off for quite some time, and now I’m writing it I’ve no idea why I was!
Any woman who is bigger than a B cup – which is in fact the vast majority of women – will know how hard it is to find clothes that fit your bust: trying to find something that doesn’t drown your lower half, to find the mid-ground between frumpy and tarty (or downright indecent), to find clothes that don’t stretch and gape in all the wrong places. As a 28K/30JJ, I definitely know how that is, and that is why I was so happy to discover a certain company from Poland.
Some among you may have heard of BiuBiu – if not, then you should definitely check them out! Much like Bravissimo’s clothing range Pepperberry, BiuBiu makes clothes made to accommodate a range of waist and boob sizes, the levels B/BB/BBB being somewhat comparable to Pepperberry’s C/RC/SC, though most have found BiuBiu’s sizing to be far more consistent.
