Collectif Dolores Doll Ivory Hibiscus Dress

Ever since I bought my beloved Collectif Dolores Doll Polka Dot Dress I have been itching to try more.  The fit, style and look of the Dolores Doll dress is so wonderful and made me feel so special that I wanted to get it in every possible colourway and pattern.

There are not many Dolores Doll dresses currently available on the Collectif website but I have been trawling the internet to see if I could find any offerings from previous collections.  Luckily I am very dogged with these sorts of searches so persevered when I didn't initially find a great deal of options...and was thrilled when my hard work eventually came up trumps.

My first purchase was the Collectif Dolores Doll Ivory Hibiscus dress.

Panache Cleo Zia Bra 32J

It's been a little while since I did a lingerie post (and I know some readers have been missing them!) so when the lovely people at Panache got in touch to ask me to review something from their latest collection I was absolutely over the moon!

In the past, when I have tried Panache bras I have ended up feeling disappointed.  The wide wires and shallow cups just didn't suit me, no matter how much I loved the gorgeous designs.

However, a few months back I tried the Cleo Chloe and Alexa bras in 32J and I fell in love!  Seriously - the Chloe in particular was threatening to rival my beloved Ewa Michalaks!!  I'd heard that Cleo wires were significantly narrower and the cups deeper than regular Panache bras and I found this was absolutely true.  The bras were wonderful and gave such amazing shape, uplift and support, especially for unpadded bras.

Matalan Sunray Metallic Dress

About a month ago, I popped into my local Matalan.  I hadn't been in the store for some time - probably around a couple of months - so it was great to have so many new items to look at and try on.

I saw the Sunray Metallic Dress on a rail and although it didn't look anything special on the hanger I decided to pick one up to try, along with a few other pieces.

Matalan Print Midi Dress

When browsing my local Matalan store recently, I happened upon a couple of wrap dresses that I hoped would work as well as my beloved George at Asda Moda Wrap Dresses.  

The Print Midi Dress is available in blue:

And also in black and white:

I tried the dresses on in store in size 14 but they were far too big on me so I got them both in size 10 and took some photos when I got home.

I'm going to review both dresses together as they are exactly the same dress, just with a different print.  So, first of all, we have the blue dress:

Bonmarché David Emanuel Red Pleated Dress

Bonmarché is a UK high street store that has been around for over 50 years.  

Bonmarché Home Page

There's a branch in my local town and I've often popped in there to have a look around, either when shopping with my mum or on my own.  It's aimed at more mature ladies, stocking lots of 'classic' items with generous cuts so I've not bought many things from there in the past.  Having said that, on the odd occasion I have picked up general everyday items such as a pair of work trousers or a cardigan, so it's always worth a look.

Ewa Michalak CH Bikini and Shorts in Black

I recently posted a review of the Ewa Michalak PL Bikini in Black and now it's time for me to tell you about the CH version.

As I mentioned in my previous post, I discovered earlier this year that Ewa Michalak's swimwear would not be available on the website but instead could be ordered by email (via

Ewa Michalak PL Bikini and Briefs in Black

Ever since I first discovered Ewa Michalak lingerie, I have been longing to try their swimwear.  I got all excited earlier this year when I saw pictures on their Facebook page of the new designs and couldn't wait to try them for myself.

Clothing at Tesco Julia Support Ponte Wrap Dress

A few weeks ago I was browsing the Clothing at Tesco website to see what dresses they had available for this season.  I was spoilt for choice - so many gorgeous numbers!

I love this F&F Burnout Wrap Dress.

It's available in black (pictured above) and purple (although I would describe it as more of a burgundy colour), and at only £25 a pop it's a great budget option for all those Christmas parties coming up in the weeks ahead!  It would also be suitable for daytime work wear as it's subtle and the skirt is of a modest length.

This F&F Limited Edition Lace Prom Dress is almost too pretty for words!

Curvissa Wider Style Wedge Court Shoes

I love wedges.  They add height but feel more secure to walk in than thinner heels.  All of my most comfortable shoes, boots and sandals are wedges of some sort and I am always on the lookout for my next pair.

Wedges look great with all sorts of outfits.  High wedges can look classy, elegant and sophisticated, and lower wedges add a hint of height without compromising on comfort.

I was recently contacted by the lovely people at Curvissa who asked if there was anything I would like to review.  I have been after a comfortable pair of wedge shoes (rather than boots or sandals) for a while so I was absolutely over the moon when I spotted the Wider Style Wedge Court Shoes on the site.  I ordered a size 5 in the black.

DDatelier Arno Graphite Dress

I recently posted about DDatelier, a retailer of bust friendly clothing based in Russia, who have recently launched an English version of their website in order to make their clothes available to more booby ladies.

I was lucky enough to review their Wrap Tie Top in Purple; but they also very kindly sent me the Arno Graphite Dress to try too.

DDatelier Wrap Tie Top in Purple

A little while ago, I stumbled upon a new (for me, at least!) boob friendly clothing line.  DDatelier are based in Russia and aim to provide mainstream sized ladies with clothing options to fit and flatter their hourglass figure.  They have been in business for five years, selling their clothing to bustacious Russian ladies.  The English version of their website only launched in September 2012 so it shows how keen the brand is to spread the word about what they do.

Like Pepperberry, Urkye and BiuBiu, DDatlier joins a growing area of the market which I feel has not yet been fully embraced.  There are huge gaps in the market for women like me who are on the extremes of the sizing charts and I am longing for a company to come along and meet my needs.

George at Asda Moda Lace Print Dress

Very recently I posted about the lovely George at Asda Moda Floral Jersey Wrap Dress.  It's a shape I love as it nips in at the waist but is also generously sized over my voluptuous boobs and hips.  The result is a great look for hourglass figures in particular, but the dress would also work for pears and other 'typical' body shapes.

I also have this dress in the original Moda Printed Jersey Dress, and even dyed several to give myself more wardrobe options.

I could hardly believe my eyes when I saw that George at Asda had brought out yet another variation of this dress shape - the Moda Lace Print Dress in burgundy and black.
