Lissome Lingerie & Panache Bra Review

I’m always super interested to hear from new brands and lingerie retailers, especially those who pay particular attention to the needs of larger boobs.  I first came across Lissome Lingerie on Twitter during a networking hour some time ago and at the beginning of February Lissome got in touch with me.  As the online boutique only opened earlier this year I was keen to learn more about them. When I first visit a lingerie website

Raynaud’s in Pick Me Up Magazine

This week you’ll find me inside women’s mag, Pick Me Up (Issue 14, Apr 4).  For the first time away from this blog I decided to share my experience of a condition I have called Raynaud’s disease.  I spoke about it here last year and Pick Me Up were really keen to hear more about my story. Raynaud’s isn’t an uncommon disease, in fact, it’s not so much a disease, more a phenomenon.  It’s not normal

National Cleavage Day & By Caprice

Yesterday was National Cleavage Day but it wasn’t the best of weather to be celebrating revealed flesh.  I’ve been more familiar with my Heat Holder socks and chunky knit scarves lately than I was in December.  We’ve definitely never had as much snow as we’re being pelted with now, and with April now on our doorstep I’ve never felt further from spring.  So to be even considering baring anything beneath my neckline just wasn’t going

Happy National Cleavage Day!

Eleven years ago, in 2002, Wonderbra decided to celebrate cleavage by giving it an official day of it’s own and so National Cleavage Day was born. I really like National Cleavage Day because, to me, it represents the mile stone of acknowledging I’m a woman and being happy in my skin.  As a developing teenager I hated the sight of myself developing boobs and looking like a woman.  I didn’t feel defined as anything particular when

Wonderbra Limited Edition ‘One & Only’ Bra

If you read my earlier post WIN a Wonderbra with National Cleavage Day, you’ll know by now that I’m, you guessed it, an official ambassador for Wonderbra‘s very own National Cleavage Day towards the end of this month.  You’ll also have noted that I’m giving away a Wonderbra to one lucky winner.  I was asked to select my favourite bra out of the entire Wonderbra range to offer as the prize and the decision was

WIN a Wonderbra with National Cleavage Day

There’s something inimitable about Wonderbra that’s proven the test of time.  Generations can share stories of a personal Wonderbra experience; parents saw the introduction of the first push up bra and we couldn’t wait to get our hands on the mother of all sexy bras in our teens.  The ‘Hello Boys’ tag line that had us all gawking at the monochrome Eva Herzigova image of the 90s is still true to the word today –

DD+ Bra Review – Bravissimo ‘Dixie’ Plunge Bra

When I couldn’t make Bravissimo’s Boob School launch last month I was really disappointed, but I was soon cheered up with the news that I could still review a piece from the new Spring collection. The only Bravissimo own brand bra I’d been able to try on before now was the Paradiso Plume on my recent trip to their Newcastle store, and I hadn’t had a very good experience with it despite falling madly in
