Christmas Treats from Figleaves


Ellis Balconette Bra from Cleo by Panache

Christmas treats are on offer from Figleaves with 25% off selected items on over 10 pages of goodies. Now that is super generous.

One of the items on sale is super quick Ellis Bra from Cleo by Panache. I love the pink floral colours, the thin straps, the beautiful candy striped bow in between the cups and the lovely embroidery that trim the cups. This is the perfect summer bra. So sweet.

Available in sizes 28F - 38HH (AUS 6F-16HH)   Be quick these sizes are selling fast.


Freya Piper Plunge Balcony Bra

The other bra I noticed on sale is the newly released Freya Piper Plunge Balcony Bra. The vibrant blue base on this bra really makes it stand out.

I personally don't like the black lace, I think it is too harsh. I think maybe cream or tan which are some of the colours of the beautiful little flowers on the bra would have been more suitable. I do love the super cute little polka dot ribbons trimming the bra. That is a lovely touch.

The black lace on the cups is nice and the lace trim on the lace is really nice too. I am not a fan of the thick black straps though. They look like seat belts! 

This is a balcony plunge bra. I do like these bras. They keep your boobs in but don't show over lower cut tops.  Such a great idea.

So as you can see there are many pros and cons to this bra. I think the only thing that makes it stand out for me and is a maybe is the beautiful summer sky blue base. The rest is up to you! What do you think?

Available in sizes 28DD-38G (AUS 6DD-16G)
 
Offer expires Monday 23rd December 2013 so be quick. Not long to take advantage of these great sales.

DD+ Swimwear


Boux Avenue Corsica gingham bow bikini

It is stinking hot in Melbourne at the moment. Today it hit 40C/104F and I am going to have one sleepless night.

So summer is here and it is beach time so what swimwear to buy and where?

I always head to my favourite online stores when I need swimwear and the first one I went to tonite was Boux Avenue. That is where I found the 50's themed Boux Avenue Corsica gingham bow bikini pictured above. It's fun, it's spunky,  it's retro and I love it. The cute pic helps a lot too.  Available in sizes 30B-38F (AUS 8B - 16F)


San Marino Swimsuit from Bravissimo

I think 90% of my swimwear is from Bravissimo. I love the colours and styles they choose and I really like the Bravissimo line as well and that is where the San Marino Swimsuit is from.

I love the berry colour and the white polka dots are too cute.  I also love the design on the back and the pearlised bead trims are such fun. The  draw strings around the legs allow you to adjust the coverage around the bottom area. What a great idea. Perfect for those of us with a little junk in our trunk!   Available in sizes 30DD - 38K (AUS 8DD - 16K)


Blue Wave Stripe Tankini from Just Peachy by Figleaves

Figleaves has a fabulous selection of all types of swimwear including bikinis, swimsuits and tankini's and the latter is what I have chosen from Figleaves huge swimwear collection..

The Blue Wave Stripe Tankini from Just Peachy by Figleaves is the perfect summer swimsuit. It has bright colours that are perfect for a glorious sunny day at the beach or by the pool. This is a halter neck style which you tie yourself.  Available in sizes 32C-38G (AUS 10C - 16G)

Figleaves also has 30% off selected Freya swimwear. This is one of the good things about being in the Southern hemisphere. We get the swimwear sales as everyone else is heading into winter!

The other place I head to when I want to buy DD+ swimwear is Brastop because they have a massive swimwear selection. They also have a sale on a lot of their swimwear too. Another great opportunity to buy.

There is over 120 individual pieces of DD+ swimwear you can choose from. I always find it had to decide but am thrilled to have the selection.

Well that should keep you busy for a little while!

3 Beautiful Floral Plunge Bras from Gossard

Gossard Felicity Plunge Bra

I hadn't been over to Gossard in a long time and decided to see what they had on offer. I was delighted to see three stunning floral plunge bras. It is perfect timing too because it is party season and it's the best time to let it almost all hang and let loose.

These bras will have the ladies looking their best while you look your best in your gorgeous party frock.

So the first bra I saw was the ethereal Felicity Plunge Bra which is an exclusive print to Gossard taken off an archived print from the 1850s.

I love the all over floral print. You can never have too much when it is this pretty. The pale blue lace trimming the top of the cups is perfection and the two crystal buttons add a touch of glamour. 

The bra is made from super soft satin fabric that has gold branded Gossard slides for that added luxurious touch.

Available in sizes 30D - 38G (AUS 8D - 16G)


Gossard Flower Rush Plunge Bra

The next bra I saw is the super pretty Flower Rush Plunge Bra by Gossard  is another exclusive print to Gossard. I love this bra because it is in my favourite colours - different shades of pink.

The Flower Rush Bra has the loveliest flowers printed over the bottom part of the cups and straps with the most beautiful pink lace covering the top part of the cups. The violet coloured chiffon bow in the centre of the cups is sublime.

The bra is made from ultra soft stretch satin fabric. The back of the bra has Gossard's signature gate back design for added comfort. Check the website for a sneak peek at it.

A-D cups have removable push up pads whereas the DD-G cups are without additional padding.

Available in sizes 30D - 38G (AUS 8D - 16G)



Gossard Floral Print Plunge Bra


Last but not least is the luxurious Floral Print Plunge Bra by Gossard. The grape colours of this bra give it a wow factor. They are so intense yet so beautiful. This bra will also give you major cleavage so watch out world!

The super soft satin fabric has another print exclusive to Gossard. The back of the bra has the signature Gossard retro gate back, check the website for more images.

There is a small centre-front which is there to enhance your cleavage with the cutest little organza bow as a lovely little decoration.

Love the floral colours, love the base grape colour, love the thin straps with the floral print and I love the beautiful deep grape colour of the lace trimming the top of the cups.

 A-D cups have removable push up pads whereas DD-G cups are without padding.

This bra is not for the faint hearted it is for a W-O-M-A-N. Are you woman enough for it!

Available in sizes 30D - 38G (AUS 8D - 16G)

May you rock the party season this year!

Bras with the Magical Christmas Spirit at Bare Necessities


Evollove Twilight Dream Demi Bra

For the longest time Bare Necessities only delivered to the US but now I found out Bare Necessities delivers to Australia so I decided to go on a search to see what they had in my size. I was surpised to find they carry an Australian brand called Evollove (love spelled backward and forward). 

Since it is that time of the year when we reminisce and also look to the skies for a jolly old man I looked for bras that reflected this and found the beautiful Evollove Twilight Dream Demi Bra picture above. 

I love all the white stars and little white polda dots that remind me of snow falling against a blue Christmas sky. It is so magical. Very festive me thinks.

The Evollove Twilight Dream Bra is a demi bra which covers half to three quarters of your boobs and offers some uplift to give you some cleavage. The cups are foam-lined and have lovely blue lace trim on the top of the cups with the cutest polka dot ribbons. 

The straps are thin and wide set so be aware of that. Would work best for someone with broad shoulders but it also depends on what dress/garment you are wearing which would make it more appropriate.

A gorgeous bra. I really love the stars and snow print on it.

Available in sizes 30DD - 38G (AUS 8DD - 16G)

Evollove Ece Queen 3-Part Cup Bra

The Evollove Ece Queen 3-Part Cup Bra really appealed to me for the same reasons above. The colour reminds me of a stunning midnight blue Christmas sky, so magical as if anything could happen.  I really love the vibrant blue colour of the lace on top.

The cups have a double layer of semi-sheer stretch lace which gives this bra such a depth of colour. I love the scalloped lace edging around the tops of the cups, straps and bottom of the bra. It really is a fun bra and the midnight blue bow in the centre is just divine. 

Available in sizes 30D - 38G (AUS 8D - 16G)

What do you think do you get a bit more of the magical Christmas spirit in you when you look at these beautiful bras. Even just a little bit?

Thanks Bare Necessities for finally shipping to Australia!

Boux Avenue Chloe Contrast Lace Bra Up to a G Cup


I found quite a few items while I was looking through the Boux Avenue Christmas Lingerie Shop the other day.

As well as the stunning Lyla Blossom Balconette Bra Set I found the beautiful Boux Avenue Chloe Contrast Lace Bra pictured above. The black lace with gold daisy detailing drew me in as did the beautiful scallop edging which all adds to the glamour and elegance of this design. 

I really love the little delicate gold organza bows around the top of the bra. They look like little butterflies fluttering. I also adore the rouleau strap detail which adds a touch of sophistication.

Boux Avenue Chloe Contrast Lace Bra in Violet up to a G cup

Large Cup Silk Bras From Boux Avenue

Boux Avenue Alexus Silk Balconette Bra

Boux Avenue has spoilt us this Christmas with the release of two luxurious large cup silk bras. The first is the beautiful Alexus Silk Balconette Bra in Ivory pictured above.

Alexus is made of luxurious ivory silk that has contrasting Italian black lace and contrasting black seams along the cups. There is a large soft bow in the centre of the bra with silk covered straps that have silver rings that connect the silk straps to the bra. Gorgeous.

Available in sizes 30D - 38F goes up to a G cup in some sizes. (AUS 8D - 16F)

Boux Avenue Alexus Silk Balconette Bra in Purple

The Alexus Silk Balconette Bra also comes in purple.  The luxurious purple silk cups are adorned with Italian golf lace in an antique cream colour and contrast cream stitching along the cups.

I really love the beautiful big soft bow in the centre of the cups. The bra also has silk covered straps and gold ring detail that attaches the straps to the bra. Such luxury and all for you.

Available in sizes 30D - 38F goes up to a G cup in some sizes. (AUS 8D-16F)

Note that Boux Avenue also has free delivery on all UK orders and you can choose to have your order delicately wrapped in layers of sheer lace print tissue paper and scattered with scented rose petals in beautiful black, white and pink boxes.

I bought a bra that was packaged like this and it looked so extravagant it made me feel like a princess.  I had a smile on my face all day long not to mention how happy my boobs were in my beautiful new bra.

Please note to have this shipped to Australia you will need to contact customer service



Purrrrfectly Seductive Animal Print Bra and Panty Set



I love animal print bras and panty sets and it's even better when the bars come in larger cup sizes which means up to a G cup for me.

I was thrilled when I noticed Boux Avenue's Georgia Tiger Balconette bra and panty set.

It is a very interesting bra in that the cups have chiffon pleated fabric with black floral lace trim along the top of the cups. Always love it when the print is along the straps. Looks great peeking through clothes. Note the straps also have chiffon pleating along them. 

The cutest little black bow with a charming gold Boux Avenue pendant sits between the cups purring its pleasure.

The matching panty is cute yet very sexy with chiffon pleating all around. There is also a matching thong if you want to go for a more seductive look.

Available in sizes 30C - 38FF (AUS 8C - 16FF)
(Goes up to a G cup and there are B cups too just check the sizes)

Boux Avenue has free shipping in the UK and if you would like to order this from Australia you will need to contact customer service.
