As the weather turned cooler last autumn, my thoughts turned to outerwear. I usually wear my beloved Ben De Lisi raincoat when I feel I need a light extra layer, and of course I have my Collectif Ashley coats for days when it is very chilly. However, I didn't have anything for those 'in between' days when a light mac is not enough but the weather is not cold enough for a heavy duty winter coat. Thank goodness for Collectif - they released their gorgeous Dietrich swing trench coat in a thicker fabric for exactly this sort of weather.
Back in November I placed an order with Polish bust-friendly clothing brand Urkye. I picked up some of their Skołowana Bakłażanowa dresses in smaller sizes (as I found the 40 oo/ooo too big (review here)) and a post about these dresses will come soon. I also bought one of their blazers; namely the Kameleon W Czerni (199 PLN, sizes 34-44 o/oo and oo/ooo (size guide here)):
Late last year I placed an order with plus size fashion brand Pink Clove. Some of the items were a hit and some were a miss for me, and today I am going to show you what a difference one size up or down can make. The two dresses in question are the Pink Clove Geo Print Wrap Dress (was £18.00, now just £10.00; UK sizes 16-32) and the Pink Clove Blue Wrap Dress (was £18.00, now just £10.80; UK sizes 16-32).
Polish bra designer Ewa Michalak makes a range of bras in different cuts and styles. There's pretty much something for everyone and with some of the newer releases there seems to be something for every occasion. A few months ago came the introduction of the 'Grace' collection; lingerie that was ideal for bridal wear.
Late last year, Polish bust friendly brand BiuBiu released some new items. There were dresses, tops, and even coats amongst the offerings. I resisted for a while but as Christmas drew closer I could no longer hold back and ended up placing an order myself. Over the next few weeks I will share these items with you; today I am going to start with the BiuBiu Monaco Dress (£34.57, sizes 34-46 B/BB and BB/BBB).
I am always on the look-out for lingerie other than bras and knickers. In the J+ cup size range there are sadly very few options available so when something comes up I am always incredibly keen to give it a try.
A few months ago a friend of mine sold me her nearly new Bravissimo Lola Luxe Basque in Black/Teal (sells new for £50.00 in sizes 28 DD-J and 30-38 DD-K) with brand new matching briefs and thong. I had checked the item on the Bravissimo website and had fallen head over heels in love with its design and colours:
