Curvy Kate Caribbean Curves Bikini

A little while ago I won three Curvy Kate sets because I was the winner of their 'Name The Bra' competition for their 'Smoothie' bra. Initially, I tried the three Showgirl sets (Tempt Me, Thrill Me and Tease Me), all of which were gorgeous undies but sadly all the bras were far too small for me in the cup.

Curvy Kate very kindly let me try some swimwear this time around and I was able to test drive the items on my recent holiday to Spain.

Now, if you regularly read my blog, you will be familiar with my struggle to find a CK bra that fits me in the cup. It appears that a 32KK or even L would be the best size but even if they made these sizes – they go up to a K cup, amazing! – I think the wires would be way too wide as the cups are unfortunately not deep enough for my boobs in smaller sizes. Despite this, I was keeping everything crossed that the bikinis would work for me.

A while back I talked about bikinis and how I find I can often size down because the material is far more stretchy than that of regular bras. I even just about managed to cram myself into a 32H Freya bikini recently!

The first set I wore on holiday was the Caribbean Curves bikini top and matching shorts.

Freya Lacey Bra

A few weeks ago I visited Leia Lingerie at Bluewater with the wonderful Georgina of Fuller Figure Fuller Bust. We had a great time trying on lots of lovely bras and I came away with three new ones, courtesy of Leia, and the one I am going to review here is the Freya Lacey.

Freya Lauren Bra

On my recent trip to Leia Lingerie with Georgina, I came away with three new bras. One of these was the Freya Lauren in black.

I was also lucky enough to receive a free Lauren in white at the recent Eveden Autumn/Winter 2012 launch. Suzanne kindly gave me a black pair of the shorts in XL to match my black Lauren as they didn't have any white in stock.

Masquerade Lula Mae Bra

The Masquerade Lula Mae is a bra I've heard a lot about from friends over the past few months.  They have highly recommended it to me and I have seen photos to prove its great shape, lift and support.

When I saw the Lula Mae on offer at Bravissimo (note it is misspelt on their website; I am taking the spelling from the label on the bra), I knew I could not resist placing an order.

Eveden AW2012 Press Launch

I was recently fortunate enough to be invited to the Eveden Autumn/Winter 2012 press launch in London.  For those of you who don't know, Eveden is the group who owns several large lingerie brands including Freya, Fantasie, Fauve, Huit, Elomi and Goddess.  Naturally, I was absolutely thrilled to be invited and took the opportunity to meet up with some of my gorgeous blogging buddies along the way, including Georgina, Mhairi, Rosie, Kitty and Sophia.

Guest Post: Freya Kelly Soft Cup Bra Review

I'm really excited about this post - it's the first ever guest post to appear on CurvyWordy! Written by my lovely friend Ruth, it's a review of the Freya Kelly soft cup non-wired bra.  Read on and enjoy :-)

Freya Kelly soft cup review

A couple of weeks ago I decided to try a soft cup bra to sleep in as I was becoming fed up with my boobs getting squashed together or squashed under me when sleeping.  It’d been happening for too long so I decided I was going to rectify it!

After looking on Leia Lingerie (a fantastic website) I decided on the Freya Kelly.  I have been drawn to leopard print recently, and most other soft cups seem to be quite plain and boring, so the print and lace together look nice and different.

I love to shrug!

I have long been a fan of the humble shrug (sometimes called a bolero).  It can completely transform an new outfit or give an old favourite a completely new look.  Over the years I have worn all sorts of different styles, from ones that tie under the bust, to ones with buttons, wrap-arounds and zips.

However, a while ago I found myself in a position with no shrugs at all in my wardrobe.  I am not entirely sure how this happened - I know I sent a lot of things to charity last year but I hadn't realised I had got rid of them all.

Coming Soon - "Plus North" Bloggers' Meet!

Back in February I was fortunate enough to be able to attend a fab bloggers' event called Plus London Two.  It was a great chance for bloggers - especially plus sized - to get together, try on some amazing clothes and lingerie, hob nob and generally have fun.  It was a great event and even though the weather was bad we all had a fantastic time.

In the days to follow, talk turned to plans for a similar event in the north of the country, so that those who had been unable to get to London might be able to attend.  And so Plus North was born!
