It’s that time of year again! It’s Black Friday weekend, so many retailers have announced big sales and discounts taking place between now and Monday. So, as I did last year, I thought I’d share the best deals I’ve seen in the world of lingerie and bust-friendly clothing.
BiuBiu is a full-bust clothing retailer, creating a variety of clothes cut for curvy figures. Stocking everything from casual tops to work clothes at very reasonable prices, they have become a firm favourite in the full-bust community. Their sizing is based on waist and bust measurements, covering sizes 34-46 (waists from 65-102cm) with three bust sizes of B, BB and BBB (up to 30cm waist/bust difference).
Monaco Dress in Blue, available in 36-46 B/BB and BB/BBB.
DD Atelier is a Russian retailer, dedicated to creating clothing to fit and flatter a full bust. They provide a wide range of clothes in a variety of styles, from evening dresses to casual shirts. Their clothes are available in sizes 65-85 (approx 23-32″ waists) and three bust sizes of D, F and H (allowing up to 12″ waist/bust distance), though various bloggers have found their sizing to be generous.
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.
I spend a lot of my time wearing pretty dresses, which means that for the past year or two, I’ve been looking for a good vintage-inspired coat to cover up with through autumn and winter. Most of my dresses are knee length and full-skirted, so I really need something with plenty of bust room, as well as being long enough to cover my dresses without crushing my petticoats. Last year, I bought a Trashy Diva Courtney Coat Dress (worn here), which, despite fitting well and being stunningly beautiful, was just a bit too formal for everyday wear.
This autumn, I was very happy to see that vintage-inspired brand Collectif Clothing had introduced a new style: the ‘Dietrich Swing Trench’, initially available in blue, beige and black. I wear a lot of black, red and blue, so I thought the blue colourway would be an interesting neutral colour for my wardrobe and a great way to wrap up, but it was out of stock whenever I looked. Not to be defeated, I bought a gift voucher during one of their sales…and waited. After months of checking, some sizes reappeared, and I just managed to order one in a size 14…only to get an email saying that they had sold out, and the blue colourway wasn’t going to be restocked again. I was gutted. However, upon hearing how much I wanted the coat, the wonderful Siobhan phoned around and managed to track one down for me! Here’s how it looked on me… Continue reading →
