Esty Seven Cities Lingerie Collection

Esty will be launching their third luxury lingerie collection to date on the 1st of March 2012.

Designed by Esty Lingerie founder Estelle Puleston, this S/S 2012 collection is named Seven Cities as it was inspired by different cities from around the world, including fashion capitals London, New York, Paris and Milan.

The collection includes three corsets, a chemise, a babydoll, a kimono and a bra set, each with a very individual look.

"It's not a collection in the traditional sense," says Estelle, "The items don't match each other - they're not the same colour, or the same style.

Each piece is inspired by the local culture and fashions of its city such as the Paris corset which I got the idea for on a recent evening out at a cabaret there, so each design just as unique as the city it was based on".

As with previous Esty Lingerie collections, Seven Cities is all handmade in the UK.

Pour Moi? for Large Cup Bras

Figleaves is taking 20% off selected items from the Pour Moi? line which is an exclusive line of lingerie that has large cup bras.

Once I found this out I had a look through the range of their large cup bras and came across the very French and very sexy Pour Moi? Opulence full cup plunge bra.

I think it was the delicate scalloped lace with the soft lilac and white art deco styled embroidery design on the large cup cups that got my attention. Looking a bit closer I also noticed the gorgeous French design of the straps with interwoven purple through it. Feminine yet sexy.

The sheer full cups on the Pour Moi? Opulence full cup plunge bra are very naughty, enticing us to watch, to see right through.

The two gorgeous bows right on the side of each cup is very playful and the bow right in the middle of the cups is beautiful too.

Bras Galore for Large Cup Size Bras and Swimwear

I found the website Bras Galore which caters to large cup size bras while I was on my regular jaunts on the internet.

I was absolutely thrilled to find they had large cup size bras I haven’t seen on the regular sites I shop on which is always exciting.

As much as I love pink sometimes I think I will scream if I see another bra website with pink all over it. Bras Galore you see is a lovely light green.

The next thing I did after having a good look at the front page is search for any large cup size bras in my size which is 30G (8G). I couldn’t believe they have 161 in stock! LOVE IT!

But it was not the bras that caught my attention but the swimwear for big busts in particular the Freya Marinella Plunge Bikini. It is an exciting African tribal print with lots of zig-zags in colours of coral, aqua and green framed by white, titanium grey and black. I love it because it is electric. It is so exciting and so different. Thumbs up to the Freya design team on this one.

I also love their Coming Soon section which gives you a sneak peak of styles that will be coming soon! Is that the Deco Bra in an Ocean Blue colour I see available in March? Yes I think it is.

Another thing I love about Bras Galore is the price of postage. It is sooooo cheap:

Free Standard UK - £0.00
European Airmail - £3.00 (AUD$4.50)
Rest of the World Airmail - £5.00 (AUD$7.50)

Consider they even apologise for not having free shipping worldwide:

We apologise for having to charge our overseas customers for shipping - costs are becoming too high to offer Free Shipping.

Really we do not need an apology we should be thanking you for charging so little.

Yes I think I will be a regular shopper at Bras Galore which is why I recommend it to you too. Enjoy!

Orange Bras in Season

What is with the demand for orange bras I ask you? It must be the colour of the season so since you have asked for them let me deliver.

I have noticed that there are many definitions of the colour orange which does not make me happy as I have a set colour in my mind and these colours are not meeting my expectations of a lovely juicy orange bra colour.

Anyway I have done some searching for you and have come up with these colours and styles for orange bras. I have a few that are all orange in colour but most bras have some orange in them.

The Cleo Jude T-shirt Bra at Belle Lingerie (pictured above) is an orange bra with red trim. The great thing about Belle Lingerie for those living in the UK is free postage!

Next I made a pitsop to see what orange bras Brastop had on offer. Orange was not a colour choice but 'other' brought up a few options and I liked the Curvy Kate Thrill Me Bra in Peach with some plum trim.  I also found the Masquerade Anise Bra in Coral by Panache

Can't go past the gorgeous, zesty, juicy Bettie Mae Bra by Bravissimo. It's full of spunk and style. Now this is an orange bra!

The deliciously colourful Sherbet Stripe Bra by Bravissimo has some orange in it. I really love this bra it's a great fit and really colourful.

 A search at Simply Yours for orange bras brought up three bras with a bit of orange in each but they neglected to add the Panache Paloma Balconette Bra which is a wild bra with swirls of orange, black and white.

Do you know of any other orange bras I may have missed? If so please feel free to post your comments here.

A Love Story for Big Bras

Big bras are beautiful in this Love Stories shoot for the February 2012 issue of Lingerie Buyer. The magazine photographed some beautiful larger cup lingerie on a beautiful larger cup model.

There is a gentle, romantic feel to larger cup collections this season, with elegant shades of black and nude, pretty details and cute cuts.

The designs for these big bras are from Mimi Holliday, Charnos, Chantelle, Curvy Kate, Else Lingerie, Gossard, Bestform and Masquerade (but not in this order on the video).

I really love the second set which is the Entice Plunge Bra in Black & Gold from Curvy Kate. It is quite dramatic and very sexy. The big bra is new to the Showgirl collection which has lightly padded cups beautiful scalloped black lace trim on the cups and a super sexy bow in the centre of the bra.

This bra is available in sizes 28-30 D-J, 32 D-HH, 34 D-H, 36 D-GG, 38 D-G.
All I want to know is when and where can I buy it!

10 Tips on How NOT to Enter Star in a Bra

The competition for Star in a Bra opens on the 23 Feb 2012. So you must be thinking hmmm why don't I give it a go this year! Well why not?

So to give you that added edge, Cheryl who made it into the top 30 last year and has the blog Invest in Your Chest has written up us a list of what NOT to do!

Let us listen to her words of wisdom.

10 Tips on How NOT to Enter Star in a Bra

1. Get fitted
The right fit can make all the difference to how you look and feel. The right bra can take wight and years off you, giving you back a waist that you’d forgotten you had. Defining your bust and waist is a sure-fire way to get attention.

2. Don't wear something unattractive.
Wear a set which shows off your curves and work it! 

3. Never underestimate the power of good lighting.
It makes your skin glow, your eyes sparkle and you look good. 

4. Enjoy yourself but don't go overboard
Try and look like you’re having fun but remember they are looking for the next face and body of Curvy Kate, not the next top glamour model.

5. Make a bit of effort but don't overdo it
They we want to see how amazing you really look. Whilst a little bit of make-up can enhance your features and a little bit on lipstick never killed anyone don’t want go overboard they don't want to see a drag queen!

6. No sneaky photo editing
Everyone has lumps, bumps, scars, wrinkles and imperfections of all kinds Рthey want to see your natural look! It sounds clich̩, but photo editing just distracts from your natural beauty.

7. Don’t over-crop
If you’ve got problem areas and are scared by the idea of going Photoshop-free, don’t just crop things out. It’s natural to get folds of skin, cellulite, wobbly bits – celebrate your curves with pride!

8. Choose your background wisely
Any distracting background can be off-putting especially the toilet in the bathroom. So try find a plain wall to stand in front of for maximum focus on you.

9. Don’t worry too much about photo quality
They are looking for the future face and body of Curvy Kate, not the next top photographer. They are not particularly concerned about the quality of your photos, but it helps if they’re not grainy, blurry or too small. 

10. Don't be scared
Girls enter of all shapes and sizes, ages, heights, bra sizes and ethnicities. As far as they are concerned there is absolutely no limits to entry – as long as you’ve over 18 and have natural boobs that fit into their lingerie, you’re in!

For the perfect Curvy Kate lingerie set to wear check out Brastop which has the biggest selection in one shop online!

Good Luck! And don't forget you have got to be in it to win it!

The Tempt Me Curvy Kate Bra in Black & Gold has become a best-seller and now available at Brastop. It is a veeeeery low plunging number with a lot of pizzazz and style. The cups are lightly padded with intricate swirl embroidery. I really love the silky champagne colour of the cups. 

When buying this bra note the cups tend to come up small so be sure to add two cup sizes to your original size!

All you are missing now is the top hat and whip to keep those lions in line under the big top or maybe it's just me! Hahaha

Available in sizes 28D - 38G (6D-16G).

Tease Me

TheTease Me Bra in Black & Silver by Curvy Kate is one of my favourites. It has that glamorous Showgirl feel that would fit in perfectly amongst a line up on a Vegas stage or better yet a Paris hall.

The cups are lightly padded in a silky silver colour with with seductive black mesh overlay producing a very sexy look. I really love the striking slot ribbon that trims the top of the cups and the seams along the cups which gives it a bit of a mermaid look. I also love the black and silver bow trims.

It is such a wonderful bra with lots of lace, ribbon, bows and style. So beautiful yet so sexy.
Thrill Me

Now if you are still standing it is time to be thrilled with the Thrill Me Bra in Grape & Jade by Curvy Kate. This is such a vibrant effervescent bra with lots of shine and attitude!

It is a padded bra in a rich glossy satin grape colour with jade embroidery and trim across the cup and a lovely little ruffle on the edge of the cups with pretty little bows to complete the look.

If you want to make a statement with your bra and thrill people this is the one to do it with!

Daisy Balconette Bra by Flirtelle

The Daisy Balconette Bra by Flirtelle is such a lovely, light, fresh large cup size bra. It's feminie yet gets the job done. All these reasons could be why Daisy is Brastop's Bra of the Week  priced at just £14 (AUD$20).

What really stands out is the lovely delicate floral embroidery. The soft pink and cream flowers are just divine aginst the cream base, it gives this large cup size bra a hint of colour and beauty. It is simplicity at it's best.

I also love the little cream bows like little kisses all over this large cup size bra.

The Daisy Balconette Bra by Flirtelle is a wonderful everyday bra that will support a large bust yet is feminie enough to make you feel so beautiful.

Available in sizes 28DD - 42FF.

Spring into New Large Bras at Bravissimo

Bravissimo has released some new large bras for their spring collection. The one that caught my eye is the Sherbet Stripe Bra in lilac (pictured above). I love the little minty green bows and the silky slim peach coloured starps. If you like bright colours on your large bras you may prefer the Sherbet Stripe Bra in Hot Pink. Available in sizes 28DD - 38K.

I must say I did try the Sherbet Stripe Bra in Hot Pink but found the lace trim on top of the cups came up too high and being a Summery bra you wear it under Summery tops which are low cut and it all shows. It was dissappoinitng but it looks like they have fixed that problem by reducing the size of the lace. I just may give it another go.

The full cup Andorra Bra by Panache also stands out due to its minty colour which Panache has creatively chosen to call waterlilly. This is a very feminine colour choice that gives the bra a very ethereal feel. It really is lovely. This bra also comes in four other colours Black, Pearl, Purple and White. Available in sizes 30D - 40J.

I also like the Juna Bra. I never really noticed it before but the cup which is lightly padded has only one seam which makes it great under fitted tops and the nude colour is great for lighter coloured clothing.

There are days when I just prefer simplicity in my clothing and this bra is perfect for that. I really like the Juna Bra in Ivory too they are such beautiful simple large bras. Available in sizes 28DD - 38H.

Another item that I noticed was the gorgeous frilly undewear for the Paige Bra. I don't wear thongs and unfortunately the frill is on the thong but it is still cute none the same. Available 28D - 38GG.

So there you go four gorgeous new large bras from Bravissimo for you to enjoy.

Gossard Ooh La La Corselette

The Gossard Ooh La La corselette has become incredibly popular since its release with its show stopping look and the amazing hourglass shape it gives you.

The elegant design will have you feeling like a movie star from the by gone era where women were ladies and men were gentleman.

It's glamorous 50's retro design has endeared us to it and the two colours highlight it's beauty perfectly. The Gossard Ooh La La comes in the gorgeous vintage cream pictured above or the Noir which is equally stunning with peach trims and undertones.

A great feature of the Gossard Ooh La La corselette is that you can wear it many ways:
- Strapless
- One shoulder
- Straps over both shoulders
- Halter
- Crossback

The cups are lightly padded for extra support, there is a three hook fastening under the arm and a side zip fastening as well.

Note that some sizes are on back order and are due in mid-February, but you can place your order now.

Gossard Gives you Candy for your Sugar

Gossard is helping you sweeten up your lingerie gift to your sugar for Valentines Day by adding Lovehearts candy to each order. It's just sweetness all round.

The candy is sent out with any purchases made through but shhhhhhhhh, they have not advertised it on their website so that it is a nice surprise when it arrives!

Gossard's managing director Tony Jarvis said: 'We’re self-confessed romantics here at Gossard, so we thought a surprise gift was the perfect way to get into the spirit and show our customers that we care.'

I always thought Gossard bras stopped at a D cup but I was wrong as I noticed they went up to a G Cup which excited me. Even better was the discovery of the stunning Fleur Plunge Bra (pictured above). Talk about sexy hot! Wow!
I love the shades of fiery red and vivid violet that conjure up images of red hot love, fire and passion which is perfect for Valentines Day.

The Fleur Plunge Bra has a revamped vintage print that is exclusive to Gossard which is printed on stunning satin with supportive mesh in the back wings for added comfort and the cutest chiffon organza bow in the middle of the cups. The DD-G Cups do not have any additional padding.

This bra is available in sizes 30D - 38G. (8D-16G).

You can also purchase the Fleur Plunge Bra from Brastop but you don't get any candy.

So if you want to give your sugar some candy you better get your order in by Valentine's Day eve and maybe get some extra loving on the day!
