Kinky Knickers – The Cheeky Brit Knick

At one point we Brits ruled the world.  The goods we consumed and traded were made by our own fair hands and considered some of the finest quality in manufacture.  We bought British because it stood for the best, our livelyhoods depended on the presence of the working factory and the union flag was our symbol that represented the British stronghold and we were proud of it. Then we fell out of love with Britain

What IS Curvy?

“You’re not curvy, you’re fat!” “You’re too skinny to be curvy!” Curves.  We love them.  We hate them.  Gok Wan really loves them.  And often, we get curves all wrong.  The thing about curves is that they’re not size specific, yet time and time again the term is misused and abused to mock the bigger figure and defeminise the thin.  And while we debate the true meaning, we miss the real point that curves or not,

Bra Fit Problems – Bust Shape and Wires

Bra fitting isn’t just about establishing cup and band size.  Oh no.  With so many manufacturers, bra styles and varying fabrics, it would be impossible to fit into every single bra just based upon measurement alone.  In fact, fitting into a bra properly can mean a completely different size for exactly the same reasons and you may find in one particular style you require a larger cup than others.

Homewares – Budget Vintage Florals

The country floral patterns that at one time were reserved for the older generations have recently made us go all granny chic, thanks to the likes of designers such as Cath Kidston.  Vintage loving fashionistas have long been rocking the trend with the regeneration of bygone era floral fashion, with the shabby chic style extending from clothing to homewares.  One reason why retro florals are now so popular is because it taps into the romantic

Read The Review, Buy The Bra

Many bras that I’ve had the pleasure of reviewing can now be found in various sales across the web.  Finding these elusive past season – and current season – collections can be a minefield and time confusing.  So, to make it nice and easy for you I’ve found some of the best places selling my reviewed bras, and some other bargains which I’ve not been able to get my hands on myself.

SS13 Trends at Next – Feminine Lace

As much as I love to indulge in an oversized snuggly jumper like the next person, something in me can’t wait for the arrival of Spring so I can ditch my heavy Winter wear and dress in something a little prettier.  The Spring Summer trends for 2013 are abundant with feminine key looks and Next are at the forefront with high street versions that flatter the womanly figure, inspired from the SS13 catwalks.
