The Fairytale Bra by Faubourg which is exclusive to Bravissimo is a wonderfuly dreamy bra with a stunning burst of colour along the centre of the cups from the floral embroidery.
The Fairytale Bra is the type of bra that I would not leave just for special occasions this it the type of bra I would wear all the time because it is just too beautiful to sit in the draw waiting for it's time to shine.
It reminds me of those emails you get which implores you to seize the day. Why wait for a special occasion to take out the good silver or the good china or wear that beautful dress or those gorgeous shoes with the towering heel that make you feel like you will fall over if you do wear them.
Well I ask you what is wrong with falling? Why not fall then just pick yourself up!
Now is the time to wear the Fairytale Bra, today is the day to use the good silver and china, today is the day you should wear that beautiful dress you have yet to wear or wear only on special occasions and match it with those towering heels!
No-one knows what tomorrow will bring and now is the only moment we ever have so now is when you should have your fairytale moments and feel like a princess and that is what you should think of when you wear the Fairytale Bra that now is your moment and this is your time. Seize the day!
The fairytale is waiting to begin today and the Fairytale Bra will help you begin your journey!
This Lingerie buying guide for men is a must have for that will make it easier for men to buy appropriate lingerie this Christmas and not dominatrix garb that will get you and your partner arrested if you actually get them to wear it!
Lingerie Buying Guide for Men
Know her size
If there’s one thing that makes underwear buying a minefield, it’s sizes, look through her underwear drawer and check her size.
Choose the right colour
The only thing to really remember here is do not buy bright red (prostitute) or cream (wedding lingerie). Base the rest on the colours your girlfriend usually wears otherwise go for black, it looks good on everyone.
This isn’t necessarily an exercise in what suits your girlfriend’s body shape, but what she feels comfortable in. Look at the underwear she regularly wears. If it’s thongs, buy a sexy version of that. If she wears proper knickers, opt for that shape. Check whether her bras have padding – if most do, make sure the one you buy does as well.
Don’t play it safe
Lingerie is supposed to be sexy so don’t under any circumstances buy something she can wear every day. If it looks like her normal underwear, you haven’t got the right stuff. But don’t go too far the other way.
How to get it right
When in doubt buy a gift certificate. Make a point of writing something meaningful on the card and offer to choose the lingerie with her to make it a more personal experience.

Butterfly Collection is an online boutique started by Claire Dumican and her fiancee Paul Syrennein in 2010 because Claire couldn't find anything pretty or supportive for her size 32H chest. It wasn't until she met her partner Paul and combined his design skills with Claires bra knowledge that they launched Butterfly Collection. A homage to big boobed women in Canada and the world.
"When I moved to Vancouver from England in 2004 I really struggled to find something gorgeous to support my 32H ladies. I was in my 20s and wanted to have pretty as well as practical bras - why were they so hard to find? It was then that I started planning my own big bra solution for Canadians.
It wasn't until Paul and I got together in 2009 that I had the confidence to leave my career and pursue my dream whole-heartedly", Claire said.
So I had a wonder through the Butterfly Collection online boutique and I saw the gorgeous Grenier Underwire Molded Easy Fit Bra pictured above. Actually it wasn't that hard to find as it is their bestselling bra at the moment.
The Grenier Underwire Molded Easy Fit Bra has beautiful dual spaghetti straps with pretty bow details. I love the black and silver moulded lace cups which have a very sexy French flavour especially the brief, va va va voooooom!
If you would like an Easyfit Bra of your own you better get in super quick as there aren't many sizes left - remaining sizes range from 32D-38F.
Grenier Bras is not a label that we know of in Australia but it actually has a lot of history in Canada. Grenier Bras was founded in 1860 and is a pioneer in the evolution of the Canadian fashion world. The Grenier Underwire Molded Easy Fit Bra is also Grenier's #1 selling bra.
There is free shipping in Canada and USA and a flat fee of CAN$20 for International orders.
So head on over to Butterfly Collection and take advantage of all the beautiful bras Claire and Paul have selected for you to make your boobs look beautiful.

Brastop is celebrating 12 Bras at Christmas for £12 (AUD$19). So I looked through the 12 bras at Brastop.com and really liked the very feminine Panama Bra by Bestform which was previously Vanity Fair that will have you looking like a beautiful English Rose in the garden of Eden.
The beautiful supportive Panama Bra by Bestform is made in a smooth cream fabric that is deliciously decorated with rich floral embroidery and delicate ribbon bow detailing in a rich coral colour.
I love the vintage inspired look and traditional elegance of this bra it is so pretty. Available in sizes 12HH-20E (34HH-42E).
I also liked the Dahlia Balconette Bra by Flirtelle in Nude. We all need our basic bras and this one is a perfect bra to go under light coloured tops. It has a beautiful embroidered floral pattern on the full cups that will definitely keep everything up, in and supported. Available in sizes 8DD-18K (28DD-40K).
The other one that caught my eye was the St Tropez Bra by Pour Moi in Fuschia Pink with white detail. It is a very cute and very pink bra that has a full cup that will support any ample bosom and make an easy job of it hahaha.
The bra has a scalloped edge and opulently embroidered cups with intricate floral patterns across the top of the cups.
It is a semi sheer bra with slim straps, I love slim straps, and a beautiful petal bow at the centre. It is just too delicious for words. Available in sizes 10D-22F (32D-44F).

Wacoal bras are very popular in the US but outside the States not many people have heard of this label. I certainly had never heard of Wacoal bras until I went on my regular wanderings on the internet to see what it is out there.
One of the Wacoal bras that I noticed and that more importantly caters to girls who need a larger cup size bra is the Wacoal Retro Chic Full Coverage Underwire Bra. Anything with the word retro or vintage in the title will always get my attention and this pretty bra certainly did that.
The cups have a double layer on the outside and are lined with Powermesh for terrific support. The cups are seamed horizontally which creates a beautifully rounded shape. The material around the cups are trimmed in elastic for a snug fit which also helps to slim your sides and keep the bra anchored.
The straps are built up from the top center of the cup to create an amazing uplift and reduces shoulder strain. Add some sheer lace overlay to this sheer bra and a rhinestone bow and you've got one sexy bra!
This bra is available up to a H cup and in colours Black, Cappucino and Crimson from Freshpair.com (this is not a direct link as this website does not have this facility) which ships internationally.
Additional colours Crimson and Toast are available from Bare Necessities which annoyingly only ships to the US.

I have a few Panache bras but the Porcelain Bra by Panache is my absolute favourite t-shirt bra. I would be absolutely lost without it.
I love Panache bras especially this one as it goes beautifully under all my white shirts and white tops and even lower cut outfits without being seen or heard from as a good Nude coloured t-shirt bra should do!
My favourite feature on the Porcelain Bra by Panache is the thin straps. It's so rare to get such thin straps on bras for girls who wear larger cup sized bras. I would love to see more of it.
Designers seem to think we need humongously wide bulldozer straps to keep our boobs up but this is not the case! I would like to see thinner straps on all bras. There is nothing worse than wearing bras with wide straps peeking through tops with thinner straps.
The bra has a slightly higher cut in the cups but not too high it really is the perfect t-shirt bra. The key to a good seamless t-shirt bra is that it keeps your boobs in so you get no bulges, it's suppose to look smoooooooooooooth which this bra does easily and effortlessly.
The Porcelain Bra by Panache is incredibly comfortable, so soft and smooth, lightly padded and has the sweetest cut at the front, I love the shape and the cup height. All these features make it an exceptional bra which is easily able to support a more ample bosom. It comes in Nude, Black and White and is available in sizes 28DD-38G.
I highly recommend this bra as a staple in your wardrobe go without it at your peril!
If you are after a busty polka dot bikini then you will be super happy as they are sooo in fashion. There are many different styles available from the balconette to the halter and the bandeau to choose from but you will need to get in quick as they are all selling like hot cakes.
The busty polka dot bikini I am wearing above is the Ibiza Bikini by Fantasie which has almost totally sold out with only one size left from Bravissimo so you gotta be super quick to get that one. Another polka dot bikini I saw that caught my eye was the La Senza DD+ Pink & White Spot Bikini which is so cute.
Midnight Grace Red Polka Dot Bikini is another super cute bikini that is great for those with a large bust because it is a full cup bra so it will keep everything in to keep your modesty. Sizes left range from 30G - 38G. You can also get Midnight Grace as a blue polka dot bikini in sizes 30D-38G.
If you prefer a different style Midnight Grace also comes as a Bandeau Bikini Top in a deliciously vibrant violet and white polka dot colour available in sizes 30D-38G.
Another super popular busty polka dot bikini is the Freya Swim Pier Underwired Halter Top which is a gorgeous lollypop pink colour that will defintiely get you some attention on the beach. It also comes with the cutest matching Freya Swim Pier Rio Bikini Brief with frills on each side or the darling Freya Swim Pier Latino Bikini Brief which is a gorgeous little ruffled skirt.
So get out there on the beach in your busty polka dot bikini and strike your sexiest 1950's pin-up pose and watch the boys or girls come running!

This is the fun Poppy Bra by Bravissimo
I love anything with vibrant colours and prints and this one drew me right to it the second I saw. A week later after it was shipped from the UK to Australia I was wearing it.
Never in my wildest dreams did I think I would be able to find something so vibrant and fun in my size and enjoy wearing it.
The Poppy Bra by Bravissimo is a plunge bra but I have never had any problems with my boobs falling out. Love that type of bra. I love the silky satin fabric it's lovely and soft on the skin.
The centre is low enough to wear low cut tops and not have any issues with your bra peaking over the top and just high enough to keep everything in. Perfect.
It really gives you cute cleavage not too much and not too little, perfect again.
And who knows, if you get your own Poppy Bra by Bravissimo you may even be able to juggle balloons just like I can.

I have been meaning to write about the Lucy Bra my favourite big cup bra by Freya. It is one of my favourites because it was the first bra I wore after getting fitted correctly into my right size. I went from a 12E (34E) to an 8G (30G) so I am very sentimental about it.
I was actually fitted incorrectly I was told I was an 8FF (30FF) but found the bra pinched on one side so I went up a cup size and found the 8G (30G) was perfect.
I actually couldn't breathe well in it and found it quite tight but the lady who fitted me said that since I had been wearing such a large size previously that it would seem very tight but this is how it should be so I persevered and I am glad I did. I broke it in and it has been one of my favourite big cup bras ever since.
It is my favourite big cup bra because it makes my boobs look small. It really brings them in from the side so you can finally see my real figure not just a blob from the waist up. After I wore it I could finally buy clothes in my true size and could fit into size small tops not medium to large because my boobs were too big. This bra really changed my life.
I love the rounded shape and I like that it keeps all my boobs in. It is a full cup bra so it protects my boobs from all sides. There is no need to buy minimiser bras because if you find your true bra size then any balconette or full cup bra will do the perfect job.
Don't waste your time with minimiser bras I can't stand them they are all ugly. Just get fitted to your right size then you can pick and chose any pretty bra and it will do the job.
Originally I bought the Lucy Bra by Freya in a gorgeous black colour with coloured flowers on it. Then I bought it in the silver colour which will be very hard to come by now. I stretched that one out so much from all the wear. Then I saw the new colour in white with pink lace trim on the cups.
I hesitated in buying it in the new colour because I wondered how I would be able to wear it under a white top as the pink lace would show through. It would have been nicer I think if it had white lace on top but I love this style so added it to my large bra collection.
This big cup bra has been a huge hit and you can see why. It is available up to a J cup and is perfect for those of us who have larger breasts and need larger cup size bras. It comes highly recommended by me.

The second I saw the Portia Balcony Bra by Curvy Kate pictured above I knew I had to have it.
I love the hot pink ribbon laced through the top of the cups. I love the cute tiny pink bows on the straps and I love the signature criss cross pattern on the cups and the shorts.
I chose the Portia Shorts by Curvy Kate as I am not a fan of thongs at all. I love the briefs anyway. Again I really love that criss cross pattern and the pink ribbon and bows on the briefs. How can you go wrong with pink and black - you just can't! It's the cutest pink and black bra.
Please remember to adjust the straps before you wear the bra or you will be cursing its ill fitting design only to realise at the end of the day its not the bra it's just that you didn't tighten up the straps!
If you purchase the Portia Balcony Bra and Briefs by Curvy Kate now you will get 20% off! So get shopping and you can start having fun too.
The Curvy Kate pink and black bra is available in sizes 8-16 DD-K (28DD-38K).

Erika Elfwecrona is a top lingerie model that is especially favoured by Simply Yours.
So they sat down and interviewed the gorgeous plus size model Erika Elfwencrona to get to know her a little bit better.
Here is how the interview went...
Freya reveals some tips on swimwear for big busts and curves for those who are considering covering up their curves instead of wearing a bikini or swimsuit.
Do not let your love for beautiful bikinis and swimsuits go away! Wear them proudly! Here are a few simple ways that can help you look a million dollars in your swimwear for big busts and curves:
Be CLEVER with your CLEAVAGE...
• 80% of us are wearing the wrong size bra, so make sure your bikini bra top is the right size for you.
• Go and get professionally fitted and choose a bikini top that is your bra size. This will vastly improve posture, comfort and will take inches off the silhouette.
• Make sure your bust is fully contained within the bra, if it is bulging you need to wear another size.
• Make sure your bikini straps are tight enough. You should not be able to put your fingers under the
• Wear your bikini top on the loosest hook, then as you wash and wear the item more, you can tighten it.
A great bikini top to show off some sexy cleavage that will have the boys falling over themselves at the beach is the Eclipse Soft Triangle Top. Don't think this comes in your size wrong. It goes up to an F Cup.
Try a few TUMMY TRICKS...
• If you don't fancy braving it in a bikini top, wear a tankini or swimsuit with a plunging neck, this will give you great shape across your chest and make your legs look longer, drawing attention away from your tummy. A fabulous choice can be seen with the Black Pier halter suit from Freya swim.
Think THIGH HIGH...
• Not keen on your thighs? You don't need to cover up completely! Why not go for a bikini bottom with drawstring sides that can be adjusted to suit your shape. These can be lengthened or shortened depending on how much coverage you want. Try the Bardot skirted brief which can be lengthened down the thigh.
• Choose a bikini or swimsuit that comes with a swim skirt like the too cute Freya Swim Pier Latino Bikini Brief which comes in manmy colours. Not only will this accentuate the swim pieces, but it is really practical for swimming or lazing on the beach.
There is some beautiful swimwear for big busts and curves so don’t cover up this Summer show it off!

Internet lingerie retailer Bare Necessities sold its 5 millionth bra and to celebrate they are giving away Five $1000 Bra and Lingerie Vouchers.
Fear not of indecision if you win because you will have also have a consultation with Jenny Altman the former Oprah Magazine stylist to help you choose the most suitable style and best size for your shape.
You don't have to purchase any items from Bare Necessities to enter the competition either, all you have to do is enter! That is my favourite type of competition, easy and free!
Their bestselling bra is the Dream Tisha from Le Mystere pictured below which Oprah stated as one of her favourite bras.
Dream Tisha from Le Mystere
The average bra size they sell is 36DD which staggers me considering most main stream labels end at a D or DD. If DD is average then they should all be catering to larger cup sizes DD+ in all their lines but they are not which is frustrating!
Now for the legalities:
The prize will be awarded as a Gift Card to barenecessities.com.
To enter you must be a resident of the 50 United States and District of Columbia, age 18 and older at time of entry.
Competition ends at 11:59 PM ET on 29 November 2011.

Debenhams has an extensive selection of Gorgeous brand bras, 137 bras in fact which is fantastic as they are available in large cup sizes so we don't miss out.
Since red is the colour of the festival season the Gorgeous brand bra that stood out for me is this Red Lace Trim Satin Balcony Bra.
The bra is styled in soft crimson satin with a lace trim along the top of the padded cups which look like sparkling jewels, never seen anything like it before and a too cute black and red bow in the centre.
You can also purchase the matching thong or shorts to complete the vibrant, sassy look.
If you don't like red you can choose the Lace Trim Satin Balcony Bra in Blue. Love these colours they have so much zest to them.
These Gorgeous brand bras are available in sizes 8-18 (28-40) DD-H.
They are also on sale at the moment at 20% off so if you want to treat yourself there are two colours you can enjoy.
If you are in the UK standard delivery will be within 4 working days and it's free! Would be nice if they could extend that to overseas customers but I understand it is not financially viable. Overseas customers can expect to pay between £7.00 - £14.00 (AUD$11-AUD$22) for delivery.
I needed to buy some new t-shirt-bras so headed straight over to Debenhams t-shirt bras section. They have two packs at really inexpensive prices so I went over and went a hunting!
It didn't take me long to find what I wanted. There were many two packs to choose from which is not good because I am so indecisive but I honed it down and decided on the pack of two black and white lace trim t-shirt bras by Gorgeous.
Since I will be wearing the bras under tight singlets and fitted tops for Summer I wanted bras with minimal lace and minimum fuss and low enough at the front that it didn't show over the front of any top I would be wearing and not too low cut so that I would have boobs bulging over the cups. So this bra would have to perform a few jobs!
The t-shirt bras by Gorgeous only have lace trim under the cups and a cute bow in the centre, simplicity at it's finest and exactly what I wanted. The front is cut low but doesn't look like it is too low that I would have boob bulge!
The straps are a little wider than I would have liked but they are still fairly slim so it doesn't look too unsightly under spaghetti strap tops.
This bra is available in sizes 8-18 (30-40) DD-FF.
There are many more t-shirt-bras to choose from in many large cup sizes so head on over to Debenhams and start choosing.

Monique available in a large cup size caught my eye when I was searching through Boux Avenue. At the moment I am loving anything with polka dots and Monique has plenty to satisfy.
I love the black and white colours in such a sexy design. The white polka dots are too cute but what I really love are the black and white stripped bows across the top of the cups. They add a very sexy Moulin Rouge flavour.
Monique is a full support balconette bra which means it’s perfect for girls who need a large cup size. The bra is very supportive for a large cup size due to the high-tech lamination processed used. There is a secret lining which is bonded to the top fabric which eliminates wrinkles and ensures an enviably smooth shape.
Who knew you could use high tech to get your boobs up and fully supported. Why didn’t anyone think of this sooner! We could have been wearing prettier bras years back.
Monique also comes in a Sweet Pink colour and is available in sizes 10D-18H (32D-40H).
Shipping is easy in the UK as there is a free standard UK delivery service on orders over £50 but if you are overseas you will need to contact them directly to order.
Boux Avenue was started by entrepreneur Theo Paphitis who has announced the opening of his 8th Boux Avenue store in his home county of Surrey, UK.
The Boux Avenue Christmas range will be featured in the new store, which is a collection full of flirty fabrics, pretty prints, lavish lace and sumptuous silks, as well as everyday bra solutions and nightwear.
Boux Avenue focuses on sizing options that range from 8-20 and large cup sizes 30A to 40H, while offering a fitting and concierge service in store - something that will continue in the new store also.
Triumph lingerie's latest innovation is Body Make-up a 'new sensual concept in everyday lingerie' which will launch in April 2012.
Triumph lingerie has combined the latest fabric and manufacturing technology with styles and colours that will create a barely there lingerie collection to suit every skin tone.
Body Make-Up is designed to look invisible under clothing and offer a new level of comfort. It will be lightweight, breathable and as sensuous as silk.
The Sensitive fabric will hug the contours of your body to fit like a second skin by using laser cut edges, bonded seams and extra-flat straps to provide subtle support and shaping.
The Triumph lingerie collection will include three styles of T-shirt bra, four styles of brief, a slip skirt and slip dress.
The skin flattering tones they will use include pure white, vanilla and coffee sugar and seasonal shades will be cherry pink and violet.

I was reading the weekly newsletter from the Butterfly Collection which mentioned Booby Trap. I Googled it and instead came across Boobytrap Warehouse.
Boobytrap has over 30,000 bras available with heaps of great, sales, savings and offers and free shipping within Australia with orders over $75. They also ship overseas but check with them before you put in an order.
Bras at Boobytrap Warehouse are available in sizes from 4A - 28H. If you are not sure about your size just click on what you think it might be along the pink ruler on the top or bottom of the website and then it will show you the sizing from many other different nations. See example below:
Australia & N.Z. = Size 12
US/UK = Size 34
European/Japanese = Size 75
French/Belgium Spanish=Size 90
Italian/Czech Republic = Size 2
I find this incredibly considerate and thoughtful. I also love searching by my size because I rarely find anything in my size. I did have a search and found 1 bra but it's better than most which is usually none!
Searching by size saves me heaps of time as I usually spend ages searching through bra sites see a bra I like and then find it doesn't come in my size and get frustrated as I have wasted all that time.
At Boobytrap Warehouse you can purchase everything from bras, hosiery briefs, shapewear, corsets and gift vouchers.
There is a retail store in South Australia which is open everyday (oh how I miss doing some decent shopping on Sunday it's killing me here in Perth) or just shop online which is what I always do. So much easier.
I also had a quiet chuckle when I saw the warehouse is situated on Sir Donald Bradman Drive! Of course Don Bradman being a legendary Australian cricketer! I am sure he would of had a quiet chuckle too being the great gentleman that he was.

The Taylor Bra by Freya has been receiving rave reviews all over the net and it's not hard to see why.I personally don't like jumping on any bandwagon, I like to dance to the beat of my own drum but I have to mention the Taylor Bra by Freya as well.
Normally when I buy a plunge bra I am usually dissapointed as I have a very full bosom on top and my cup runneth over so to speak hahaha but the print design and style of this bra is too beautiful to say no too. I love the retro look.
The pinstripes, gold velvet ribbon and lace trim are seductively elegant. It really is a stunning bra set.
The Taylor Shorts are so elegant ( I am not a fan of thongs at all). You can also get a high waisted brief (not available through Bravissimo) which is very sexy and will hide a mutitude of sins under any sexy fitted dress you want to wear during the festive season or any season for that matter.
Available in sizes:
28D - G
36D - GG
38D - G
I love the juicy, zesty orange colour of this gorgeous new bra by Bravissimo called Bettie Mae. I love the exuberant colour, the black velvet trim on the cups and the black polda dots are just too cute on this fun retro inspired design.
The matching Bettie Mae brief has a key hole cut out and a too cute large fun bow on the back making this a must buy for this festive season. It definitely says Christmas party time then party back at my house with lots of fun in store hahahahaha.
The Bettie Mae which is exclusive to Bravissimo will definitely have you dancing around and feeling great, how can you not with such a vibrant colour.

A bestseller at Brastop this week is the luxurious Lace and Velvet Bra by Wonderbra.
Such a luxurious bra deserves a far more creative and dignified name than Lace and Velvet but we will respect it. It looks like something a Sexy Southern Belle would wear. I just get a Southern Feel about it. Maybe the raunchy side of a Southern Belle hahahaha.
It is a stunning bra with lightly padded smooth cups to give your boobs a lift and some fabulous cleavage.
The cups are overlayed with a rich floral lace and soft fabric touches with a petite bow at the centre of the Lace and Velvet Bra by Wonderbra to complete the look.
Available in sizes 8 (30) DD - 16 (38) FF

How fun and cute is this bra. It is called the My Kiss Plunge Bra by Lisa Charmel from her diffusion line, Antigel.
The bra pictured above is a plunge bra and comes in sizes too small for our boobs, I just couldn't pass up on using that photo, but you can also get it in the My Kiss Balcony Bra which is perfect for our boobs.
It is a pretty sheer balconette available in black with a red lipstick print and in sizes 30-32 D-G, 34-36 C-G, 38 D-F and 40 C-F.
Fun, flirty and incredibly sexy this bra has it all! The sheer cups maintain the wonderful fit and support of a standard Lise Charmel bra while the quirky design of lips and lipsticks add a funky, modern edge. Finished with a beautiful bow and keyhole adornment.
Love it! About time we had some fun, zany prints for our ample bosom. You can get this bra from Pudding Lingerie. Go Pudding!
Also if you are shopping from overseas (ie not in the UK) delivery is free if you purchase anything over £29! Yipeeeee! Lets go shopping!

Have fun with romance in this decadent Curvy Kate Romance Bra and Shorts.
This gorgeous exotic creation looks like something you would wear in a tent in the middle of the Sahara lying amongst plush velvet cushions and Persian rugs while your servants fan you and your dashing Arabian Prince feeds you grapes and adores you.
The stunning Curvy Kate Romance Bra and Shorts which also comes in a thong if you want to be really daring has gorgeous gold embroidery on the top part of the cups and gold trim on the top part of the shorts.
I love the shorts as they have a vintage feel about them and the gold bows on the bra are a beautiful trim that adds that touch of fun.
Available in sizes 6D - 18J (28D - 40J) from Heavenly Curves.

The Freya Latisha Balconette Bra I am wearing above is one of my favourites. Unfortunately you can't see it too well (go through link above for a better view) but I just love this photo. I love the yellow wall it's so spunky.
Anyway what I love about the bra is it's bohemian vibe and the burst of bubble colour in purple, orange and pink tones. The shape is based on the popular Pollyanna bra. It is really supportive and I wear it on those days when I need that extra support.
I find the Freya Latisha Balconette Bra separates my boobs so they sit apart but it's a different look which I don't mind. I like trying different styles especially ones that have such a funky print.
The main thing is that my boobs are supported and they look smaller so I can fit into my right size top not a top where I have to buy a size larger because my boobs won't fit in it. Thankfully this is a problem I don't have any more which makes me ecstatically happy.
I love the rich silky black fabric, the burst of bubble colour and the lace. The vibrant violet coloured bows add that magic touch. They are so cute.
You can also get the Freya Latisha Short from Brastop or the Freya Latisha Brief from Bravissimo which I am wearing above.
Please note this is not a new style and limited sizes are available so be quick if you want your own bohemian style.
