Chloe Lace Balconette Bra


I was searching for a lace balconette bra and came across this beautiful delicate Chloe lace balconette bra from Boux Avenue.

This luxurious white moulded lace balconette bra has a touch of fairytale about it. Chloe looks so delicate and romantic with the floral lace overlay and scalloped trim

I love the cute ribbon bows and rouleau strap detail which adds charm to this beautiful style

The Chloe lace balconette bra comes in black, lipstick (a lovely soft pink) and violet and sizes 30A - 40G.

Freya Bikinis introduces the Funky Waves

Freya Waves Bikini

Freya Bikinis introduces the funky Waves sounds like a promoter introducing a funky rock band but Waves  is one of Freya Bikinis popular styles and its not hard to see why. It almost has a hippy seventies vibe about it with all the different shades of blue and white and deep pink running through it like it has been tie dyed.

This is one of many Freya bikinis which comes in a classic cut. The bikini top is quite supportive and the brief is a classic cut brief so not too low cut on the top and you don't have your butt cheeks hanging out the bottom.

The only issue I have with it is that the white lining peaks through at the top so I did have to sew in a few stitches on either side of the cups so the white material wouldn't peak over otherwise it is really great.

I love the funky colours and the classic cut makes it an easy style to wear and should suit anyone. It has a great fit, shape and flattering beach look.

If you would like to get one of these funky Freya bikinis for yourself try Brastop.

Gok Wan Shapewear


Gok Wan has launched Gok Wan Shapewear his 7th lingerie collection to Simply Yours.

Along with the cherry blossom prints you will find some retro-inspired designs to his new non-shaping lingerie line whilst his shapewear collection consists of bodies and briefs that feature lovely lace, prints and corsetry detailing with varied levels of control.

New additions for this seasons shapewear range include the ‘Multiway Sculpt’, a low cut shaping slip that allows you to wear your own bra for invisibility under clothing; the high-waisted and elegant laceShape Me’ briefs and matching bra, and lace ‘Shape Me’ slip.

Where to buy Gok Wan Shapewear you ask well the main collection seems to be at Simply Yours which ONLY delivers within the UK which is highly unfortunate and frustrating but you can also find a limited selection at figleaves which ships worldwide.

The second stage saw her battling 20 other bra stars to be in the top 5, gathering votes from family, friends and curvy fans everywhere!

Lula Mai Bra from Masquerade Lingerie


Lula Mai Bra from Masquerade Lingerie
 
This is the gorgeous Lula Mai Bra from Masquerade Lingerie which is a very sophisticated design that I don't normally go for but it was too beautiful to pass up.

I love the Antique Ivory colour it whispers luxury so elegantly. The beautiful emroidery is a wonderful antique teal colour and a perfect contrast against the champagne satin colour of the cups which are lightly padded.

The cups have a jungle lion look about them with the way the seems are cut which I found alluring. It's wild yet tame. The straps are slender and soft. The cups come in sizes D-H.

The Lula Mai Bra and Brief from Masquerade Lingerie both have a little medallion on them but I don't like it so took them off. Be careful if you do this especially on the bra because the lace falls away. Maybe sew a little patch first then cut the medallion off.

The brief is very brief. It is close to a hipster, very low cut on the front and high cut on the butt cheeks!

So if you are looking for bras for larger breasts I recommend you make a stop at Bravissimo and try the Lula Mai Bra and Brief from Masquerade Lingerie you won't be disappointed.

Freya Sports Bra for Big Boobs


This Freya Sports Bra is great for big boobs. Sounds funny but we girls need a decent sports bra to support our boobs while we are jumping around. I don't want my boobs to keep bouncing once I have stopped. Don't laugh it used to happen all the time until I got my own Freya Active Underwired Sports Bra.

The first time I wore mine I found it incredibly tight but persevered and now it has stretched a little and fits like a glove. It is perfect. I don't bounce at all and I can breathe.

It keeps my boobs firm and in place. It also minimizes my boob size. I have never looked so small its great. You can keep your attention on the workout class or activity you are doing and not worry about bounce or if your boobs are showing. This Freya Sports Bra for big boobs comes in D-H Cup.

The Freya Active Underwired Sports Bra is designed for high impact support. It is made from Coolmax fabric to wick away sweat, it has mesh panels between the cups to keep you cool and wide adjustable padded straps for comfort. It fastens with 3 hook and eyes.

Bravissimo Bra Parisian Plume in New Winter Collection


This gorgeous Bravissimo bra is the Parisian Plume. It is a half-cup bra that is lightly padded. It has beautiful Parisian influenced lace and embroidery in hot pink and bright blue and the cutest bows I have ever seen on a bra. They are half pink and half blue. Sooo cute.

The Parisian Plume is from the Bravissimo bra collection and is available in the very sexy Blackberry colour above and the bright summery Aqua with a mix of yellow, green and silver embroidery. The bra comes in DD to a HH cup.

Camouflage Candy Bra by Gossard

 
Gossard Camouflage Candy Plunge Bra

This is the Camouflage Candy Bra and Shorts by Gossard which I bought from Bravissimo my favourite online bra shopping site.

The cups on this Gossard lingerie plunge bra are silky soft and very supportive. They are lightly padded but do not make your boobs look bigger. It is a cotton bra that has a silky satin overlay on the outside with a rich animal print in pinks, browns and cream.

The top part of the cup has a lovely lace overlay and the centre is finished with a very pretty pink ribbon.

The Camouflage Candy Shorts are very silky and comfortable with lace trimming on the sides. You can also get it as a thong.

Brastop also has a few of this Gossard set left as well as Bravissimo.

Gossard has discontinued this style which means there are only a few sizes left so you better be quick if you want to get your own set.

Debenhams has added Curvy Kate bras to its online lingerie store. Curvy Kate bras has seen incredible growth since it was launched in 2009. It is now stocked in over 500 stores and 15 countries worldwide.

As soon as I found this out I went directly to Debenhams Curvy Kate bras section and found the Portia Balcony Bra (pictured above) which I instantly loved. This is one of Curvy Kate's bestsellers and you can see why. It's sexy yet pretty. I really love the pink ribbon it's a wonderful burst of girly colour against the black. 

I also love Debenhams customer service. You get an email stating they have received your order then another email stating they have received payment and then the best email of all the one that says they have dispatched your order. Yippeee! That is excellent service.

Then all you have to do is wait for your items and hope it doesn't take too long to arrive.

The bras are specifically designed for us girls who need large cup size bras. Their bestsellers include Princess, Emily,Lottie and Portia all in D to K cup sizes.

Lilly Wiggler Vintage Lingerie



How gorgeous is this vintage lingerie by Lilly Wiggler.  I discovered it on my almost daily search on the internet to find large cup sizes bras ie a bra to fit me.

I found it at Esty Lingerie which features independent designer brands from around the world. The site was set up as a platform to help these up-and-coming designers. So if you love original pieces including a little retro lingerie you will be in heaven here. 

The stunning bra which immediately caught my eye and is pictured above is the Black Blossom Balconette Bra. It comes in sizes 6 (28) - 26 (48) and cup sizes A - KK. It is handmade with satin and lace.

This beautiful vintage lingerie piece has a black and floral print with black eyelash lace on the top half of the cups and a lovely satin ribbon bow accent in the centre. It is also padded.

The price for this beautiful vintage lingerie piece is £49.99 (AUD$77.50). Even better is the postage at £3.99 (AUD$6.50) for all worldwide orders.

Makes me wonder how a small independent company like this can charge such cheap postage yet the bigger companies charge you £14.00 (AUD$22.00)! Hmmm...

You can also get the elegant matching
Black Blossom Satin & Lace Shorty Style Briefs or the very sexy and playful
Black Blossom Satin & Lace Tie-Side Briefs.  It is retro lingerie with that 50's style especially the too cute tie-side briefs.

Let's not forget the
Black Blossom Silk Chiffon Playsuit which would have been perfect for an evening with Hef at the Playboy Mansion during the fifties. I am sure he will appreciate it today too!

So let's support the independents, that's where we always find the beginnings of greatness and I think we have found it in Lilly Wiggler.

Karina Bra and Shorts by Cleo

Miranda Kerr in $2.5 million Bra


Miranda Kerr has posed in the Fantasy Treasure Bra, which is worth approximately $US2.5 million as part of her Victoria's Secret duties.

The stunning turquoise bra which is from the Christmas Dreams & Fantasies collection was co-designed by Long Island’s London Jewelers and boasts almost 3400 precious gems, including 142 carats of white and yellow diamonds, pearls, all set in 18-carat white and yellow gold.

“It’s such an honor to wear the bra,” Kerr exclusively told People magazine. “And it’s such a piece of artwork! It’s absolutely stunning—it kind of feels a little mermaid-like—but I can’t believe I’m wearing $2.5 million on my chest.”

Kerr, will hit the runway wearing the sparkling jewell encrusted bra for the luxury lingerie line in November.

Each year one model is chosen from the Angels to wear the bespoke jewelled bra during the famed runway shows and the Australian was the perfect choice this year.

Lingerieplease for Beautiful Big Bust Bras


I am loving this new website I found for big bust bras called Lingerieplease, and yes it is one word Lingerieplease!

I was having a really good look through the website and searched many different sizes when I came across this gorgeous number pictured above that is perfect for big bust bras.

This item is the Florence Underwire Bra by Fantasie. It has got a very Moroccan feel about it with the gorgeous lace detailing and especially the gold contrasting embroidery which adds a lot of glamour and class, while the black oozes elegance and seduction.

Another point I love about Lingerieplease is that they deliver overseas for only £8 - or AUD$12.50. Now that is a bargain and the prices of the big bust bras are a bargain too. Much cheaper than I have seen on many other websites and I have seen plenty!

They show live stock levels on the website. In stock items are dispatched the same day if they are ordered before 4pm (the next working day for orders after 4pm). If an item is out of stock they will order it from the supplier and dispatch it to you within 24 hours of receiving it.

Deliveries usually take 1-3 working days to arrive for UK orders and 2-3 weeks for overseas orders.

Lingerieplease ticks all the boxes for me. Gorgeous bras, inexpensive prices, very low deliver fees and great delivery service. What more can you want. Let's start shopping!

This particular nasty cancer involves the damage of white blood cells that multiply uncontrollably, enlarging lymph nodes and forming tumours.

"I got the diagnosis properly on July 6 but I'd known about it (that there was a problem) for months," she said.

"I was convinced I'd pulled a muscle moving house.

"A photographer in the industry told me to get it checked out and the doctor said `it's in your lymphs; it's not a pulled muscle you crazy girl'," she added.

    Scarlett Johansson wearing Panache Bra


    Did you notice Scarlett Johansson wearing a black Panache bra in Iron Man 2? I did because I have the Panache bra in blue. The movie is one of only 10 films to have broken the US$100 million barrier in its first three days of release.

    The Panache bra she is wearing is the Eliza Bra which you can get from Her Room in Black or Ivory. If you are feeling a bit adventurous you can also get it in dusky purple from Brastop. Unfortunately you can't get it in blue anymore.

    Looking at the bra you may think it is not supportive and looks a bit flimsy but I can assure you it is a very supportive bra. The panache bra features vintage Austrian embroidery which is soft on your boobs with quite a fun look.

    The style is a low-cut balconette but it supports all your bosom, nothing will fall out. For GG to K cup sizes there is a lining (that is not sheer) in the top part of the cup that provides extra uplift and support.

    Now you too can be just like Scarlett Johansson and get the Panache bra in black or ivory or be a bit adventurous and get it in dusky purple.

    Please note this bra has been discontinued with only limited sizes available which means you need to get in quick if you want one too!

    Her Room Bra Coupons



    I wish I knew about Her Room bra coupons  last night while I was shopping on their website. I came across the Veronica Moulded Bra by Fantasie pictured above.

    I was looking for a t-shirt bra and that one was unlike any I have seen before and so pretty. They are usually the basic colour black, white, beige or very bright like hot pink or lime green but not this one.

    This bra comes in a cream base with a stencil-effect leaf and floral print in black, gray and berry. I really love the luscious berry velvet trim along the top. And of course I bought the matching Veronica Short Panty underwear. How could I not!
    This print is too gorgeous to just buy the bra I definitely had to have the set. The shipping price to Australia is AUS$29.21 (USD$27.84) which made me think twice but this set it too beautiful to pass up and the last one in my size and it was on sale so I bought it. It would have been nicer if I had a Her Room coupon code but doesn't matter.

    The Veronica Moulded Bra by Fantasie is still available but in limited sizes and if you search through Her Room bra coupons  you might find a Her Room coupon code to get it at the extra special price.

    Bras and Breast Cancer

     

    I bet you weren't execting to see a blog post about bras and breast cancer here but I saw this article and thought it was important to pass on the information and let you decide for yourself. There are so many articles for and against but I think it is good for us to be aware that the debate is on and what the two sides to the story are.

    A separate article to the one below also stated that wearing bras that are too tight cuts off the flow of lymphatic fluid through the breast area and drastically elevates breast cancer risk. This is why you really need to get fitted properly for your right size.

    So are bras good or bad for you lets's see the two arguments.

    Argument that bras are not good for you:

    Bras and Breast Cancer
    by Ralph L. Reed, Ph.D.

    Although I am an environmental chemist (Ph.D. in biochemistry), I have been doing a lot of literature research on breast cancer since I saw an article on the National Library of Medicine database over a year ago. That article documented an increase in breast cancer rates between women who do wear bras versus those that do not.

    That Harvard study fascinated me and I searched the medical literature for possible explanations. In January 1996, I discovered the book by Singer and Grismaijer and their explanation of impaired lymphatic flow intrigued me. I have since read everything that I can find on lymphatic flow.

    What I have found has amazed me, but that is another story. I can supply you with lots of info if you like. In essence, what Singer and Grismaijer found was that the odds of getting breast cancer dramatically increased with bra-wearing over 12 hours per day.

    * Women who wore their bras 24 hours per day had a 3 out of 4 chance of developing breast cancer (in their study, n=2056 for the cancer group and n=2674 for the standard group).

    * Women who wore bras more than 12 hour per day but not to bed had a 1 out of 7 risk.

    * Women who wore their bras less than 12 hours per day had a 1 out of 152 risk.

    * Women who wore bras rarely or never had a 1 out of 168 chance of getting breast cancer. The overall difference between 24 hour wearing and not at all was a 125-fold difference.

    Now let's hear the otherside of the story.

    Argument that bras don't cause you any harm:

    Bras and Breast Cancer
    by Sarah Treleaven

    For over a decade, there have been rumours of a connection between the wearing of bras and the prevalence of breast cancer. Some of the rumours allege that women who wear bras are 100 times more likely to develop breast cancer than those who forgo bras.

    Underwire has also been blamed as a culprit, with allegations that the wire prevents lymphatic drainage and traps potentially fatal toxins in the breast tissue. Some sites have even alleged that the connection between bras and cancer is much stronger than the connection between smoking and cancer.

    While most of us are wise enough to be dubious about many of the things we read online, some of the information has come from seemingly credible sources. This week, The New York Times article "Q&A: Bras and Cancer" asked Dr. Ted Gansler, director of medical content for the American Cancer Society to respond to the rumour.

    So, is there a connection between bras and breast cancer?

    According to Dr. Gansler, "the short answer is no." He says that there is no credible scientific evidence to support claims that bras result in the accumulation of toxins within breast tissue -- and that such a claim doesn't jive with known concepts of how breast cancer develops.

    (Though the lack of any definitive scientific pursuit of this connection probably won't help to dispel rumours.) Even more, when the National Cancer Institute studied women with blocked lymph drainage (as a result of the removal of underarm lymph nodes), they found that breast cancer rates were not detectably raised for this group.

    Dr. Gansler says that the idea of bras causing breast cancer is so scientifically implausible that the theory will likely never by put to the test in a real epidemiological study.

    So what do you think? Have you heard this bras and breast cancer rumour and did you believe it? Do you think it's worth exploring further?

    Sexy Large Breast Bras at Belle Lingerie


    I came across some large breast bras at Belle Lingerie while I was on my daily Google search for a particular bra I wanted. 

    I love finding new sites that cater to those of us who need large cup size bras and who deliver worldwide - i.e. to me in Australia and was thrilled to find that Belle Lingerie does both.

    I love it when I can search by my size, it saves the dissapointment of looking for large breast bras and finding one I am mad for but then see it is not in my size so I close down the site and go for a good sulk! Hahaha. But once again I was happy to find I did not need to do this with Belle Lingerie.

    It's also nice to find a few more new bras that weren't available on some other sites. I think each site must get a few large breast bras exclusive to them so I guess it is good finding these new sites for  becasue you have a bit more choice.

    The one picture above is the spunky Curcy Kate Angel Balcony Bra This gorgeous number comes in Black & Ivory and features the signature criss cross stitch detailing that Curvy Kate is known for. It is also available from a D to a K cup and even better at the moment it is on SALE! So be quick!

    And if you buy this bra you too will be smiling like this girl just like in the Coke ads where everyone is happy and laughing! Hahahaha!

    Beautiful Her Room Bras


    There is a large selection of larger size bras at Her Room. Looking through their site one caught my eye. It is the Goddess Keira Banded Underwire Braicon pictured above. The incredible vibrant blue colour really stands out. It's so glossy silky sexy in colour. The shine is amazing.

    The bra comes in five colours Fawn, Chocolate, Scarlet, Navy (which is the vibrant blue above) and Black.
    Cup sizes M & N are available in the colours Fawn and Chocolate.

    The Goddess Keira Banded Underwire Braicon comes in sizes 12I (34I)  - 24K (46K).

    A very popular bra it was the Winner of the Undie Award for Favourite Overall Full Figure Bra in 2010.

    This is a full cup bra with sheer top cups and a V-plunge which gives it a lighter look. The side slings give you maximum lift and great support.

    Her Room bras are many and varied and you will find many more larger size bras there. The bra sizes range from 6A (28A) - 36I (58I) so there is definitely something there for everyone.  You won't have trouble finding larger size bras again.
