Cake Sugar Candy: The Fuller Bust Comfort Bras

If you’re still hunting for the perfect comfort bra, today you can call off the search.  Whether you’re after a nursing bra, sleep bra or just a really comfy wire-free bra for everyday wear,  I swear I have finally found the holy grail of comfort bras that’s actually full bust friendly too.   When Cake Maternity first made known they were introducing the fuller bust Sugar Candy bra I couldn’t contain my excitement.  I’ve long been attracted

Wonderfully Wire-Free: Royce Charlotte Comfort Bra

I’m continually amazed by how breast change in pregnancy falls in line with bump development.  It took me until the start of the 2nd trimester for my tummy to really start growing, by which time my bras also started to feel less comfortable.  While it didn’t really look like my boobs were any bigger, my abdomen was, which meant I was outgrowing my small banded bras as fast as my leggings.  Time for a new bra –

6 Full Bust Sleep Bras: Bras For Moody Boobs

At certain times of the month my boobs can feel something crazy.  One minute they’re just big, cuddly mounds of squishiness, the next they’re moody boobs, rocks on fire, inflicting pain and misery into your sleepless life.  It’s times like this that I can’t cope with my regular wired bras and sure as heck can’t do with sleeping bra-free. Soft and casual but keenly supportive sleep bras are a blessing when my boobs are playing temperamental.  Some come

Autumnal Jewels | Freya Jade ‘Rio’ Collection

Do you remember your first bra?  Or how about the bra you wore for your dream job’s interview?  For something so insignificant to daily life, underwear has a funny way of imprinting memories.   I do remember my first bra (a set of two basics) and the bra after that one too (my favourite ever blue gingham bra).  Just as memorably, another bra stands clear in my mind.  I was first professionally fitted in my mid twenties with a full bust

Wonderbra Glam Part Two: The Cleavage

When the Wonderbra Glam was released it took the iconic lingerie label into boudoir territory.  Boasting a more luxurious aesthetic with a vintage feel, the Glam’s sumptuous design offered a new take on sexy femininity. This month I had the opportunity to take a closer look at Wonderbra’s Glam range; firstly the balconette bra, and now the latest style: Glam Cleavage, which I’m going to compare with the former. Moving away from the balcony shape, Glam Cleavage takes on the best

Maison Close ‘Hotel Diva’ Teddy

Growing into my pregnancy body is proving a challenge already; bras aren’t fitting as they did a week before, and everything feels a bit… tight.  Even though my body’s changing and getting bigger for an amazing reason, it doesn’t mean I don’t sometimes feel a bit frumpy.  Feeling shabby about yourself at an important time of your life is just not right, so wearing clothing – and indeed lingerie – that makes you feel extra special is top of

A Carnival of Colour with Freya Parade

Never underestimate the power of fantastic lingerie.  We all have our own ideas of the perfect lingerie set, but looks and fit are inarguably two of the most defining points that make lingerie truly amazing. Colour is a massive influencer when I’m lingerie shopping.   I love bright colour; when I know I’m wearing something really vivid I feel like my energy is feeding off it.  Exciting patterns and shades aren’t pointless when they’re sending a

Pretty in Pink: Freya Fifi

One of the best things about February is the promise of impending Spring, and with that hope comes forth an array of lighter, prettier lingerie collections. Freya launched a capsule of delicate feminine lingerie in time for mid-month Valentine’s Day, and I was offered to pick from the new sets including Fifi, Deco Charm and Siren.  Having brought Deco Darling and, similar to Siren, Ooh La La, recently to the blog, I decided to opt for
