Vintage Pin-Up Style Bikini Bra from Boux Avenue



The Micro Spot Multiway Bikini Bra from Boux Avenue is the sort of glamorous large cup size bikini you would have seen the ever so elegant Grace Kelly in as she would have glided along the beach to her cabana.


The 50s-inspired bikini bra offers superb shape with a vintage pin-up look.



You can wear the large cup size bikini as a very elegant halterneck or tie the wide halterneck straps around the back to transform the Micro Spot Multiway Bikini Bra into a sexy strapless style.

Available in sizes 30DD-38FF (8DD-16FF)

Bra Blogs I Follow

 

I thought I would let you know what Bra Bloggers I follow because there is some great bra information out there and everyone is having a say about a different aspect in their own way.

I check on these blogs and keep up with these bloggers on Twitter and Facebook from time to time to keep up on the latest, news, reviews and information on the large cup size world and I suggest you do too:

Braless in Brasil
June is American but lives in Brasil and blogs her frustration at not being able to find a decent bra to fit her large cup size in Brasil. June wears 30H/HH Ewa Michalak, 28HH Bravissimo, 28J/JJ Curvy Kate, and is hoping to see some major changes in the bra industries locally.

Fuller Figure Fuller Bust 
I love Georgina, she is such a spunky chic with great style and blogs about her battles with huge bras and dresses to fit her gorgeous curvy figure.I don't know what she is worried about with her clothing though as she always finds something stunning. She should give herself a raise she is doing a brilliant job.

Holly also has a large bust and twitters about her bra issues which is where we have chatted about our frustrating bra journeys!

Kitty Lingerista
Kitty is another Bravissimo devotee who was properly fitted into her 28FF bra from the incorrect 34D she was wearing. I converse with Kitty on Twitter and also keep an eye on her blog too, she is also a campaigner for 28 backed bras.

Panache Loretta Plunge Bra


This stunning plunge bra is the Panache Loretta Balconette Plunge Bra which is specifically designed for women who need a large cup size. The tribal based embroidery on the top of the cups really caught my eye because it is so beautiful.

It looks like there are little oriental fans over it too and I really like the design in the middle of the cups, I have never seen that before.

The bottom part of the cups are double lined for extra support with thin straps which I love that are wide set with a very deep plunge. There is a leotard style back which smooths away any bulges. 

The cups are in three parts for extra support to lift your boobs and giving you a naturally rounded shape.

This is a beautiful must have sophisticated bra for those times when you need to be all grown up!

Available in sizes 30D - 38H  (8D - 16H).

You can find this large cup size bra at Freshpair which is having their Anniversary Sale where you can save up to 25% off this plunge bra until the 8th of April.

Boux Avenue Almeria Halter a Large Cup Size Bikini


The large cup size bikini top above is the Almeria Halter Bikini Top which is the first item I saw after I checked out the new swimwear from Boux Avenue.

I fell in love immediately. It has a darker base colour than what I would normally choose but I just love the ditsy floral print on it. It is a plunge halter neck but looking at this large cup size bikini it looks quite supportive.

I really like the big floppy bow in the middle of the cups it's like large rabbit ears, too cute.

Now I am not sure why their sizes start from 32 (10) as I am a 30 (8) and I doubt I will ever find my size on this site but as long as I can inform you of the beautiful swimwear for big busts I find then my job is done!

Ok I have been corrected by Boux Avenue! - I should look a bit more carefully at the information on the site and not just take things for granted. This bikini top is actually available for the purposes of this site from 30DD - 38FF. Still a cup size short of my size 30G! Darn! Hmmm maybe I can squeeze into a different size.

The Almeria Halter Bikini Top is available in sizes  30DD - 38FF (8DD - 16FF).

If you are ordering from Australia you need to phone up and order but I think you will agree that it is well worth it.

Star in a Bra UK Top 30 Announced

I really love the Star in a Bra competition because it gives anyone who has a little courage to send in their photos and have a chance to change their life for the better by being voted Star in a Bra and winning a modelling contract with Curvy Kate.

Is there a better competition with a better prize? I think not!

It seems a lot of you think the same because over 1000 women, which is three times more than last year, have uploaded their photos onto Curvy Kate's Facebook page. The judges have finally managed to look through all the photos and have come up with their 30 favourite girls pictured below!    

Now it's up to you to vote for your favourite to get them through to the next round.























































Each girl is going to have three questions to answer in a mini Curvy Kate Star in a Bra interview which you can read here and then decide from those answers who you would like to vote for.

Then all you have to do is head over to Curvy Kates Facebook page and vote now. You actually get three votes so choose wisely.

If you would like to add some Curvy Kate lingerie to your collection check out the large selection Brastop has on offer.

Good luck to all the girls! Your courage will get you far!

Let me know if you have read the interviews and who you have chosen and why. It's all so much fun and so interesting.

Yellow Lucy Bra to Brighten up Your Day


The gorgeous yellow bra above is the Lucy Balconnet Bra from CLEO by Panache. It's part of the Panache CLEO Collection that is made specifically for those of us who require large cup size bras.

I actually have this yellow bra in pink and find it great for Summer as it is lightweight and breathable. It is lined in sheer, silky soft mesh fabric that is very comfortable. It also offers great support. You may think it might not as it is made from sheer fabric but it holds up my 30G's with no problem so you won't have an issue either!

The bottom part of the cups have sweet little flowers embroidered on them and the top part of the cups have beautiful large flowers embroidered on them which are topped off with a dotted lace edge. The bright pink bow in the centre of the cups is just darling too.

Available in black and white as well and in sizes 30D-38J (8D-16J).

You can get this yellow bra from Freshpair which is having their Anniversary Sale where you can save up to 25% off large cup size bras until the 8th of April.

I really love the flat rate international shipping charge of just US$9.95 which is available to over 60 countries. If you are in the US shipping is always FREE.

Five Colourful Big Cup Size Bras


I was checking up on what big cup size bras Debenhams had on offer as I hadn't been over there in a while and was pleasantly surprised to find quite a few beautiful, vibrant and colourful big cup size bras. 


The Purple spot print balcony bra by Gorgeous really caught my eye due to the vibrant purple colour. I really love the soft pink polka dots and the cute little pink bow in the middle of the cups. Unfortunately there is a button sewn in the middle of the bow, I am not a fan of buttons on bras I don't like them at all.

The bra is lightly padded with a mesh overlay over the cups. Note that the lovely silky straps are set a bit wider and are more suited to square or wider necklines. Available in sizes 28G - 40H (6G-18H).




Of course I noticed this pink spotted satin balcony bra by Gorgeous how can you miss this vibrant pink flamingo with deep pink polka dots and the double layer of scalloped lace with a line of hot pink and contrasting black lace trim across the cups. I love that the polda dotes run all across the straps too.

This is definitely a statement piece that screams I wanna have fun! What great big cup size bras these are.  Available in sizes 30DD - 40G (8DD-18G).



I love the elegance of the Purple fan print balcony bra by Gorgeous. It is such a sophisticated bra with its Oriental theme. The little fans all across cups are beautiful as is the delightful double layered bow and the flower motif in the middle of the cups and at the edges of the straps. It really is stunning.

The sheer embroidered mesh along the cups is so intricate especially the tips of the scalloped lace that looks like red jewels spotted along the edge. It's absolutely divine. Available in cup sizes 30DD - 40FF (8DD-18FF).



This fun frilly little number is a must have too. This is the Turquoise spotted balcony bra by Gorgeous.  I love the fresh turquoise colour and the contrasting black polka dots is a perfect match. The stand out feature to the bra is the double layer of net ruffle detail to the cups.

If you look real closely you will see the sweetest little bows with black polka dots in the middle of the cups and at the edge of the straps. Too cute. Note this bra does have wide set straps.  Available in sizes 30DD - 40FF (8DD-18FF).



Last but not least is the Gorgeous Bright Pink Embroidered Plunge Bra in a stunning bright pink shade with  intricate floral embroidery on the cups, and contrasting purple picot trims along the bottom edge of the bra. I also absolutely love the lollipop striped bow in the middle of the cups. Delightful! Available in sizes 30DD-40FF (8DD-18FF).

Some of these bras are on sale and other sizes are limited so you need to be quick.

Let me know what you think of these big cup size bras. Are they too bright for you or you will indulge your girly side and let loose!

Fantasie Tanya Balcony Bra


I was wandering through Debenhams bras for larger cup sizes and came across the beautiful Tanya Balcony Bra from Fantasie.

I love all the natural shades in this bra with its beautiful Italian floral print and embroidered tulle along the top of the cups and lovely soft tan coloured bow in the middle of the bra.

Straps are beautifully textured with picot trim along the edges. It is a very sophisticated bra that will make anyone go wow.

Who knew nature could be so beautiful and in a bra for larger cup sizes.

This bra is selling fast with only 32E - 38GG sizes left.

Figleaves Massive Mid Season Sale


Figleaves is having a massive Mid Season Sale at the moment with up to 50% off some of their biggest lingerie brands including Freya, Curvy Kate, Panache and Fantasie

Well once I received the news of the sale I quickly logged onto Figleaves and had a scout around for a great bargain. Well I didn't find just one I found five!

The bras listed below are all familiar to those of us who keep an eye on the styles so they are not new designs but who cares! Maybe you didn't purchase these previously for whatever reason but now they are on sale and up to 50% off so I think now is the time to treat yourself the ones or ones you want!

These are the ones I want! Let's go!


The Tango Luxe Balconette Bra from Panache was released to celebrate Ten years of this best selling style. I really love the colour. It's a lovely fresh, crystal clear Ocean Blue. The bra is made of semi-sheer double layerd fabric with luxurious satin trims including a satin underband and trim on top of the cups with a diamante trim in the centre of the bra. Available in sizes 28D-40J.


I really love the Curvy Kate Angel Balcony Bra again because of this wonderfully fresh blue but I also love the contrast of the signature white criss-cross stitching running across the cups. I really love the little peach coloured bows as well. The bra has fully lined cups and is available in sizes 30D-38H.


I really like the Brooke Underwired Balconette Bra from Freya because of the black cups but then you get a burst of colour from the pink and yellow diamonds above which is all crafted from beautiful fine lace. The hot pink lace trim along the cups and the pink bows are just beautiful, they add a spunky touch. Sizes are available in 28D-32GG.


How can you not love the gorgeous Lottie Balconette Bra by Curvy Kate. I love the pink straps and the pink roses embroidered along the top of the cups. It is made from super smooth microfibre with embroidered mesh and lovely pink ribbon bows. Available in sizes 28G - 38K


Lastly is the super popular Crystal Underwired Moulded Plunge by Freya. I love the vintage design with the teal blue and super cute white polka dots and that plunge and style gives you an incredible cleavage. Unfortunately they chose a model with a small bust but if you have a larger bust (I have seen this bra on a larger busted model) you will have killer cleavage!  Available in sizes 28D-38G.

Note all styles are low in stock so be quick to get the ones you want or you will miss out!

Curvy Kate Star in a Bra launches in the US


Curvy Kate which caters to larger size bras from D - K Cup has finally launched it's Star in a Bra competition for the US. It all starts on 5th of April.

Having launched the brand in the US from August last year they already have 1500 fans on Facebook and sell their wares in over 50 stores and on lingerie giant BareNecessites.com.

Since then fans begged for the Star in a Bra competition to be launched in the US and Curvy Kate heard their pleas and said yes it will be, and it was on!

To enter the competition all you have to do is go to the Curvy Kate Facebook page where you upload images of yourself in lingerie to enter. There will be a shortlist of 30 girls who will be drawn and then the finalists will face a public vote where fans then get to chose their favourite natural D+ woman.

The winner of the competition will be flown to the UK to be involved in marketing campaigns with the UK and Australian Winners.

The average American breast size is above a D cup with the average dress size a 14 or larger yet companies still choose models who are on average 23% thinner than the average US woman. So this competition is perfect for the American market to address this problem.

So will you be the next Miss Curvy Kate America?

Let me know if you will or won't enter the competition. We might just need to give you a gentle push in the right direction.

Three Must Haves from Boux Avenue



Boux Avenue has some new items in their online store and I found three that are must haves.

The first bra is the very sexy and very plunging Tori lace moulded plunge bra. It comes in this lovely soft lilac colour and made of exotic lace. It has a beautiful Moroccan lantern print with delicate scalloped lace trim and a little satin bow in the middle of the cups.

I also love the way this bra makes her boobs look. They have a lovely rounded shape and are pushed up and forward creating the perfect cleavage. Available in sizes 30A - 38F.





The next bra that caught my eye is the fun Georgia ditsy stripe balconette bra in a country style ditsy floral print. It has a mix of pink, cornflower blue and lemon flowers printed on fresh blue and white striped chiffon, which is gathered over the cups.

I really love the thin straps which are ruched and the lace along the top of the cups is a perfect trim. Then to finish off the bra is a lovely little light blue satin bow with a silver Boux tag. Available in sizes 32A - 34F. (Would be nice if this was available in a G cup as I just miss out!)

I also love the Georgia ditsy stripe shorts. The ruching and the ditsy floral print with the stripes and the gorgeous lace trim around the top and legs is super cute and a definite must have even if you buy it on it's own.



Last but not least is the very classy Lyla Satin Balconette Bra which has been inspired by the Mad Men 1950's era. It has a lovely satin finish with a beautiful black diamond lace trim on top of the cups which is quite striking.

I am not a fan of the wide straps but they do add a special touch with a very elegant organza ribbon bow set in the middle of the cups. 

Available in sizes 30DD - 40G.

They are three very different designs but equally beautiful. What do you think?

Rigby & Peller for Royalty and for You


I came across Rigby and Peller a little while ago but only just managed to have a good look through their site and understand them a bit more. My blog is mainly aimed at more inexpensive pieces as that is my budget and refuse to pay AUD$100 for a bra anyway but I can't go past them without a mention.

Rigby and Peller is a very posh family lingerie business with six stores that was started by June and Harold Kenton over 40 years ago. They sell luxurious bras which have been sourced from all over the world and are available in sizes 28D-46G (6D-24G).

Their customers include Royals from all over the world, movie stars, models and TV personalities.  

Rigby & Peller were granted The Royal Warrant (pictured above) as a mark of recognition for regularly suppying their goods or services for at least five years to select members of the Royal Family and has always been regarded as a mark of excellence and quality which is highly prized.

In 1960 the Royal Warrant was granted to Rigby & Peller by HM. Queen Elizabeth II and in 1982 June Kenton became Grantee of the Royal Warrant as Corsetiere to HM. Queen Elizabeth II.In 1993 June Kenton became Grantee of the Royal Warrant of Corsetiere to the late HM. Elizabeth, the Queen Mother.

Looking through their site for something in my size which is 30G I spotted the absolutely gorgeous Rigby & Peller Alondra underwired plunge bra. It looks like something a showgirl would wear in a club somewhere in New Orleans. I say this respectfully and with a great sense of fun. It is a stunning bra.

The Rigby & Peller Alondra underwired plunge bra is made from a soft mesh tulle with beautiful scalloped embroidery along the top of the cups and the bottom of the centre. I love the little ribbons and the little crystal trim in the middle of the cups which adds a sparkling touch of glamour. It has so much spunk and style and how can you go past that vibrant magenta colour, wow!

It is available in colours Black, White, Magenta, Navy and in sizes 30D - 38F.

This gorgeous bra comes in a lovely lilac colour and is made of Boselli Satin and trimmed with striking champagne coloured guipure motifs along the straps, side of the cups and in the middle of the cups.

This is not a new bra just new to me so there are not many sizes left. I am happy because mine, 30G is one of them. Check it out now and get yours before they all sell out. 

Available in sizes 28-38 D-H Cup.

Curvy Kate Emily Balconette Bra in Grape & Black


The Brastop bra for this week is the very vibrant and juicy Curvy Kate Emily Balconette Bra in Grape & Black

Looking at it closely now the black stitching on the bottom half of the cups looks like black vines enticing our eye up to the gorgeous embroidered flowers on a balcony. It's almost as if we are calling Romeo to come climb the vine and kiss us passionately on the balcony.

It is a very intricate bra with an intriguing lace that protrudes out like thorns from a rose, a love that can never be. A bittersweet love story.

The small bow in the centre of the cups is the last sweet kiss. Dare to be part of this love story!

Available in the fantastic size range of 28D - 44G  (6D - 22G).

(I am amazed by my imagination hahahaha)

Bravissimo - Tenth Best Company to Work for in the UK


Bravissimo is one of my favourite online bra sites to shop from and anytime I can find out a bit more about them makes me very happy as I see them more as a best friend then just an online bra shop. They really changed my life when I discovered they existed and I could finally wear beautiful bras not just ugly grandma beige bras.

It makes me even happier to find out that Bravissimo has been named in the 2012 Sunday Times Annual 100 Best Companies list as the tenth best company to work for in the UK.

Bravissimo was started with humble beginnings in 1995 by Sarah Tremellen who has since grown the business from a small mail order company in her living room to a retailer that now employs nearly 700 people, with 23 shops and annual sales of more than £30m (AUD$44.7m).

Those running Bravissimo responded to staff requests to give more back which lead the company to adopt Tommy’s, a national charity that funds medical research into miscarriage, stillbirth and premature birth and provides information on having a healthy pregnancy.

A bra-recycling scheme was also introduced with every kilogram of recycled bras resulting in a £1 (AUD$1.50) donation to Tommy's with Bravissimo having now recycled more than a ton of lingerie. For this effort Bravissimo was awarded the Special Achievement Award for ‘Best for Giving Something Back’.

As well as being a great company to work for it is of course a great place to shop especially to purchase the gorgeous Paige Bra by Miss Mandalay in the delicious Lemon/Vanilla colour pictured above.

Ola Jordan from Strictly Come Dancing is Boux Avenue's New Model



Boux Avenue has chosen Ola Jordan a professional dancer from Strictly Come Dancing to be the model for their Spring/Summer collection for 2012.

Ola said: 'I have never done anything like this before so am really excited to have such an amazing opportunity to work with a company like Boux Avenue.

It’s really important to have a bra that provides the utmost support during training, and Boux Avenue bras fit so well that they feel like a second skin. I am absolutely thrilled to have been asked to get involved and can’t wait to be the new face of Boux Avenue!'

One of the sets that Ola loves is the ethereal Camilla satin and tulle balconette bra pictured above. I love the dusty pink colour and vintage feel of the style. The ruched chiffon section on the top of the cups is beautiful with the delicate lace trim framing it just divine.

I especially love the gorgeous little pink rose in the middle of the cups.The only thing I don't like is that the cups are only available from a DD - F cup.

View more of Ola Jordan's favourite Boux Avenue lingerie pieces here.

Parfait by Affinitas for D - G Cup Bras

Affinitas is a new label which I hadn't heard of. I saw quite a few banners on a few lingerie websites so did a little digging and found out they have a line called Parfait by Affinitas which specifically caters to larger cup sizes from D-G.

I also found that Her Room, which deliver worldwide, has the largest collection online of all the online retailers so did a further search there and picked these three as some of my favourites. I do love pink and saw a few pink bras but thought I would go for something a bit different. I am sure you will agree these are stunning too. 



The first bar that really stood out was the Parfait by Affinitas Charlotte Padded Bra pictured above which also comes in a lovely soft pink as well.  It is a very seductive bra. Black and red will do it every time.

I love the contrasting colours on the straps and the big black bow in the centre of the cups. Doesn't that just scream come and get me! Hahahaha or maybe that's just me!

Firstly why it is padded I don't know as we already have enough filling our cups without more but anyway. The cups are lined in 3-parts with light foam padding for shape and support. The satin side support panels along outside of cups are there to provide uplift and prevent side "spill-over."

The bra is built on a base with an elastic underband for superior support. A tip when buying this bra it tends to run on the small side so a suggestion is to go up one band size and one cup size. (e.g. if you are a 32F, go to a 34FF)"


The Parfait by Affinitas Donna Padded Underwire Bra picture above caught my eye because of the gorgeous violet colour but also because of the rounded shape her boobs have in this bra, very sexy.

Once again this bra is padded and also features a padded 3-part cup with lovely embroidered cups and beautiful tulle on the top cup and plain tulle on the lower cup. I also love the thin straps and the shiny satin bow in the middle of the cups just beautiful.




The Parfait by Affinitas Fiona Moulded Padded Bra caught my eye also because of the colours Purple Wine pictured above and Peacock Blue which is equally elegant and stunning. I love the shine in the satin fabric and the lace trim on top of the cups it's very classy.

The ruched trim on the straps adds that extra elegance to it. This is a very sophisticated bra for the smart yet very sexy woman. Once again the cup is in three parts for added support and uplift.


And that my friends is Parfait by Affinitas. They should get a gold bra medal for making life that much better for those of us who need larger cup size bras. Hooray!

Bullet Bras are making a Comeback

What Katie did Marlene Bullet Bra

Bullet Bras are making a comeback. I didn't realise how popular they are until I received a few questions about bullet bras for those of us with a larger cup size, then did a search and saw the demand.

The authority on the bullet bra seems to be What Katie Did who specialise in faux vintage lingerie which includes faux vintage bullet bras. The brand is so popular that it had their lingerie featured in the movie My Week with Marilyn which Michelle Williams received an Oscar nomination for.

While I was searching through What Kate Did I came across the stunning Marlene Bullet Bra (pictured above with the model wearing a 32DD) which has a stunning two-tone colour pattern combining black satin with sheer peach organza with the cups feature their signature circlular stitching.

Unlike modern bras which push the breasts inwards and upwards, the bullet bras gently coax your breasts into the perfect 1950s conical shape.

What Katie Did were the first company in the UK to revive the bullet bra over a decade ago, adapting an original 1950s pattern and adding several more cup sizes to suit the modern figure.

The bullet bras Maitresse, Harlow and Lulu are the only ones which go to an F cup but shortly will be available up to a G cup.

The What Katie Did Bullet Bras Are:

* Made of fabric with satin which is 100% polyester and sheer which is 100% nylon
* Have authentic spiral stitching
* Are Soft cup (your breast fills the cup to make the bullet shape just like in the old days!)
* 2 row, 3 column hook fastening
* non-stretch band, but with an elastic panel at the front for a snug fit

You can have the other bullet bras made up to an F cup  but that will be bespoke orders that are non-refundable and take around 6 weeks for delivery.

The way to enter the competition is online through Facebook where you upload five lingerie or swimwear images. So far there have been over 10,000 page views and over 1500 images have been uploaded since the launch last Thursday, with numbers rising by the hour.

Steve Hudson, Managing Director comments, ‘We are delighted with the response to the competition and are thrilled that so many curvy women are eager to help us show the world how good a shapely figure looks in lingerie.

There have already been dozens of girls who would be perfect for the brand. The best part of the competition is that, it’s not Curvy Kate who decides though – we let our customers choose who they want to see modelling the lingerie they’ll be buying.’

Over the last 3 years Curvy Kate has had some gorgeous curvy girls model for them and who act as ambassadors, promoting the ‘feel good figure’ philosophy. With a 32FF a bestselling bra size for the D plus wholesaler, Curvy Kate are looking forward to finding the next face and body of the brand.

The entry stage of the competition will run until the 16th March. To enter upload you pictures here on this Facebook page. You don't have to wear Curvy Kate Lingerie but you can find a few new pieces if you choose. 

The Top 30 will then be chosen by the Curvy Kate panel and guest judge Star in a Bra Winner 2011, Lizzie Haines and top women’s weekly, Best Magazine. The public will then decide on their favourite to become the next Curvy Kate model.

Please not this competition is just for the UK and Ireland. For the US Curvy Kate Star in a Bra competition find details here. There is an Australian one but that is later in the year.
