Top 5 Tips on Caring for your Bras

Bra Voe Bra Storage

This is a good little list on caring for your bras that I found at They have a bra storage system which is a very good invention. This list was written up by Helena the inventor of Bra-Voe. Do you have any good bra caring tips?

Top 5 Tips on Caring for your Bras

1. When washing your bras in a washing machine, always put them into a lingerie bag. This will prevent the bras hooks from catching on the delicate material or getting caught and twisted within the wash.

2. Make sure you use a delicate cycle with cool water and mild detergent to help protect the delicate fabric.

3. Alternate bras more often so you don't end up washing the same bras over and over causing them to lose their shape more quickly.

4. Never put your bras in the dryer or wring them out. Let them drip dry on a clothes rack.

5. When storing bras never invert the cups because it can lead to lumps and dimples in the fabric and padding. These lumps can show through your clothing and ruin your outfit. Instead use Bra-Voe to store your bras.

Loving the exuberant Freya Tropics Plunge Bra

Freya Tropics Plunge Bra

The second I saw the Freya Tropics Plunge Bra I said WOW! I love all those bright, vibrant colours plus it is the perfect colour for a red hot Valentine's Day.

I really love it when the colours run over the straps. I think all bras should do this as bra straps can usually be seen through tops in summer so why not make it part of your outfit. 

Love the red bows, love the sheer cups and the brilliant floral design. I also love the blues peeking through the reds. What a wonderful combination. 

From the 13th February- Monday 17th February you can get this stunning bra at 20% off by using the code TWENTY at checkout. Figleaves has a sale with 20% off everything sitewide so why not treat yourself to this bra you deserve it!

Available in sizes 28D - 38G (AUS6D - 16G)

Lepel Hello Sailor Retro Swimwear

Lepel Hello Sailor Moulded Bikini Top Red

I was moseying through the swimwear at Brastop when I came along the striking Lepel Hello Sailor Bikini. The bikini top is underwired with moulded cups that are lightly padded.

The bikini is decorated with a beautiful striking red retro floral print and pinstripe trims. I love that big floppy bow in the centre of the cups. 

Available in sizes 32D - 38G (AUS 10D - 16G)

Lepel Hello Sailor Deep Pant Red

What attracted me was not the bikini top but the bikini bottoms. I adore the Lepel Hello Sailor Deep Pant. This is where the beautiful retro floral print comes alive.

You can see the bold red, the beautiful retro flowers with blue centres and the pinstripe detail around the waist. Now this is style!

These are very flattering bikini bottoms that will flatten the jelly, give you a sexy silhouette and have you feeling fabulously confident on the beach this stinking hot summer!

As I write this at 9.40pm it is 31C/88F. It actually went 41C/106F today! Yes it has been a very hot summer. Can't remember when it was this hot before. Stay cool!

Available in sizes 8 - 18 (AUS 10 - 20)

Seduction by Gorgeous from Debehams D-H Cup Bras

Seduction by Gorgeous Ivory Lace Trim Balcony Bra up to G cup

I have never noticed the Seduction by Gorgeous from Debenhams line before so I will assume it is new and snuck in without me noticing it!

I am thrilled to have found it because there are similar items at Boux Avenue but those bras are available in smaller cup sizes and I miss out but the Seduction line goes up to a H cup so I win!

The bra I noticed was the Seduction by Gorgeous Ivory Lace Trim balcony bra pictured above which alerted me to this line. It looked very different to what I normally see from the Gorgeous line by Debenhams and because of this I had to have a closer inspection.

It is an elegant bra. I love the gentle ruching on the cups made of ivory satin and the lovely black lace trim on the cups that are slightly padded.

I also like the contrasting black trim on the straps and bottom of the bra. Just beautiful.

Also available in this range is the ivory lace trim hipster briefs and ivory lace trim thong.

Available in sizes 30DD - 40G  (AUS 8DD - 18G)

Seduction by Gorgeous from Debenhams Black Lace Balcony Bra up to H cup

The other bra that stood out for me is the Seduction by Gorgeous from Debenhams Black Lace Balcony Bra. 

What I noticed is that the top of the cups are made of sheer mesh with no trims. I love the simplicity of it. There is some beautiful lace detailing on the bottom portion of the cups that looks like a flower. I love the silky black straps too. It is a beautiful, sophisticated bra.

Also available in this range is black lace mesh briefs, thong and a very sexy lace suspender belt.

Bra available in sizes 30DD - 40H (AUS 8DD - 18H)

The other bra I really like in the Seduction from Gorgeous by Debenhams is the Black lace bra. Yes the bra above has the same name as this one. Come on Debenhams get creative, you can do better than this!

I like this bra because it has a sexy French boudoir flavour.  The cups are slightly padded with beautiful black lace overlay that has eyelash trims and satin panelling with a silky black bow in the centre of the cups and sexy ruched straps. A very seductive bra.

And how cute are those black lace bikini briefs? Also available in this range is a black lace insert babydoll (really sexy just ignore the boring name) and a black lace thong.

Available in sizes 30DD - 40GG (AUS 8DD - 18GG)

Note this is an extremely popular line and sizes are selling fast so get in quick to avoid disappointment. Don't dawdle like me then curse when your size sells out. I always do it. D'oh!

Which one is your favourite? I really like them all.

Swimwear365 for Swimwear Year Round

Lascana Purple Wrap Effect Swimsuit

Swimwear365 is a great to go if you are looking for swimwear. The temperatures are rising this week and may even get to 40C/105F by this weekend.

I love this website because it has a large selection of bikinis, tankinis and swimsuits in many different styles, patterns and prints.

Their sizes range from A-K cups, 6 to 34 in swimwear sizes and items XS to 5XL. It's because of this that I thought I would let you know. I like to pass on any good finds.

One of the swimsuits that stood out for me is the Lascana Purple Wrap Effect Swimsuit pictured above. I love that vibrant pink in the middle and the purple around the back. Available in sizes 10B - 22E. 

Just note they need to work on their search feature which is a little frustrating.  It searches for sizes separately. So when I searched for my cup size, 30G it showed all items in the band size then the cup size. So now I just search by cup size. It makes it easier.

There is a good selection for DD+ cups but the larger the cup sizes the smaller the selection gets but there are some beautiful items to choose from. I really love all the vibrant colours and prints.

I noticed there a quite a few bikini top's sold by band size. Has anyone bought just by band size?  I think it would only work for those with smaller boobs. Being a G cup I doubt I would fit into a standard size 8 or 10. I think my boobs would just spill over!

Hearts Amour Bra by Bravissimo

Hearts Amour Bra by Bravissimo

If you are looking for Valentine's Day gift ideas look no further than this sweeter than sweet Hearts Amour Bra by Bravissimo. I saw the hearts on this bra and I went awwwwwww.

This is a lightly padded half cup bra that is lined with cotton. It has black swirl embroidery and sweet little pink hearts all over it. Adorable. 

I also love the little pink bows in between the cups and on the straps.

Available in sizes 28DD - 38HH (AUS 6DD - 16HH)

New Curvy Kate Swimwear

Curvy Kate Seashell Halterneck Bikini
It's hot, hot, hot outside and so is the new Curvy Kate 2014 swimwear collection. There were two pieces that stood out for me when I searched through the selection Belle Lingerie has.

The first one is the too cute Curvy Kate Seashell Halterneck Bikini. How adorable are the little seashells that look like polka dots? You can never got wrong with polka dots and this red and white number is a winner.  The little seashell charm in between the cups is such beachy fun.

Pair it with the skirted bikini bottom that has the most gorgeous ruffle and you will be the cutest chick on the beach. Those bottoms are really flattering. There are three different bottom styles you can choose from. This is also available in a tankini.

Available in sizes 30DD - 38G (AUS 8DD - 16G).  Available up to a HH cup.

Curvy Kate Marina Bikini

This is the other design that I said yes please to. It is the Curvy Kate Marina Bikini. Once again it looks like a blue and white polka dot print but on closer inspection the polka dots are tiny little boats. How adorable?  I really love that big blue nautical bow in the centre.

The bikini top has lightly moulded cups to give you a lovely round shape and support your prized assets! There are two different bottoms you can choose from but I think the tie side bikini bottoms are so cute. 

Available in sizes 30DD - 38G (AUS 8DD - 16G). Available up to a HH cup.

Also note there is a 10% discount on Curvy Kate's New Swimwear line this week so get in quick and bag yourself a bargain!

Valentine's Day Gifts at Boux Avenue

I love the Valentine's Day gifts Boux Avenue has available. I love pink and this collection features a lot of it. It is such a sweet colour and some of the designs are so pretty and feminine that they melt my heart. I hope you get inspired with some Valentine's Day ideas.

I watched the video above and it featured some of my favourite large cup size bras in their collection so I have focused only on them in this post.

Boux Avenue Henrietta Satin and Lace Balconette Bra
The first and last bra that features in the Valentine's Day gifts video is the Henrietta Satin and Lace Balconette Bra. It has a very intriguing design I have never seen before. I love these types of bras. It is a vintage design in a lovely soft mauve.

The bra is made up of a sating sling casing that is ruched in the centre and has cream corded lace as a trim for the cups and a lovely bow in the centre. This bra is available up to an E cup. Such a same. Would have been nice to have it in larger cup sizes.

Boux Avenue Libby Lace and Satin Plunge Bra
The next bra we see is on the model holding flowers and the message on screen says 'love flowers'.  This lovely bra is the Libby Lace and Satin Plunge bra.

I love the sweet pink colour on this boudoir inspired balconette bra that has black eyelash lace trimming the cups. The straps are cushioned and the side panels or wings on the bra are layered with mesh. That large satin black bow in the centre of the cups is a classy touch. Available up to an  F cup.   

Boux Avenue Ebony Bow Balconette Bra
The Ebony Bow Balconette Bra  is unmissable as the model smoulders in this set holding the red love balloon.

This smoking hot balconette bra comes in a devilish red colour which would make the devil howl with pleasure. It is made of sumptuous red satin and is overlaid with seductive black lace.

I love that the casing for the wires is in black satin such a great contrast idea and the black bow and straps help to make this a very seductive bra. Available up to a G cup. 

Boux Avenue Carina Full Support Plunge Bra
I would love to eat that giant chocolate the model is holding while wearing the very sexy Carina Full Support Plunge Bra which is in a deep hot pink colour.

The cups are made of soft microfibre that will give you some killer cleavage. The sides of the bra are trimmed with seductive black lace but I doubt anyone is going to be looking there when you wear this hot number!

When you purchase the Carina Plunge 20% of proceeds go to Breast Cancer Care.  Available up to a G cup.

Boux Avenue Jesse Plisse Mesh Balconette Bra
I think the Jesse Plisse Mesh Balconette Bra is my favourite in the video. You will notice it with the model kneeling down near the LOVE sign and on the screen are the words Loves Me.

I love the baby pink colour of this bra and the beautiful plisse of the material on the cups. So sweet. The cups are trimmed with delicate black eyelash lace. It has an old Hollywood look for me when innocence was king.  It is such a lovely tender looking bra.

The thin straps and the beautiful bow with a heart sharped charm in the centre makes this absolutely charming and divine. Love it. Available up to an E cup.  (Unfortunate for those of us who require larger cup sizes. Such a beautiful bra.)
If ordering from Australia please contact Boux Avenue by phone and get in quick so you get this in time! Otherwise just order online for other countries.
