Curvy Kate Horizon Red Stripe Bikini 32JJ/16

Summer is slowly but surely heading our way here in the UK (honestly!!) and even though it's been a slow hiccuping start with only a handful of warm, sunny days and rather more cloudy/windy/rainy ones I have every confidence that we'll have some hot days suitable for sunbathing coming soon.

And, of course, for sunbathing we need a bikini!  I've reviewed quite a few of them here on my blog but these reviews were mainly last year so I am delighted to bring you my first bikini review of 2013: the Curvy Kate Horizon Red Stripe Bikini.

Marks and Spencer Outlet Black White and Red Dress

A few months ago I visited the Marks and Spencer outlet store at Lakeside, Thurrock.  I was driving back from a work meeting and wanted to break up the journey so a bit of retail therapy seemed just the ticket!

I tried a few dresses on but there was one that especially appealed to me and, after tweeting a photo of it and getting a positive response, I bought myself two: one size 10 and one size 12.

Marisota Magisculpt Leopard Print Jersey Dress

As you will be well aware by now, I am a fan of bodycon dresses.  I love the way they follow each and every curve of my body and show off my hourglass shape perfectly.  I was recently approached by online shopping brand Marisota to review an item for them and of course I chose a bodycon dress:

Evans Black Embellished Kaftan

A few weeks ago I was approached by Evans to see if I'd like to review something from their swimwear range.  Unfortunately I was sized out of their bikinisswimdresses and swimsuits because I need a small back and large cup (Evans swimwear is available in dress sizes 14-32 and in cup sizes C-D, DD-E and F-G) so I would have found them too large in the back but too small in the cup.

Clarks Trilby Tweed Platform Heeled Sandals 5.5 E Wide Fit

I visited Bluewater shopping centre a couple of weeks ago with Hanna from The Wardrobe Challenge.  We hadn't seen each other for quite a while so it was great to meet up and have a proper natter.

Ewa Michalak S Wiśniówka Bra 32K/70K and 32KK/70KK

A few months ago, Polish lingerie superbrand Ewa Michalak brought out a long-awaited new style of lightly padded bra: the S shape.  When this bra was in the planning stages it was known as 'BP', which supposedly stood for 'balconette padded'.  

This shape was designed specifically for ladies with larger breasts, and also for those who have softer breasts, who need a different shaped cup that would offer superior support to the PL shape, which had previously been the only other option for those of us with larger boobs.  This new shape was much anticipated and of course I was keen to try it for myself.

Elomi Betty Black Babydoll 34H

I have always wanted to own a babydoll lingerie dress.  Why?  Well...for obvious reasons I guess but as I'm currently single it's simply something I'd like to have in my lingerie drawer just in case the need ever arises!

Babydolls in larger cups are a relatively new option for those of us with big boobs so I was absolutely thrilled when I discovered that plus-size lingerie brand Elomi was bringing out their gorgeous Betty bra in a babydoll option.

Anna Scholz for Simply Be Mock Wrap Dress in Blue

Around 18 months ago, I attended a fab plus-size bloggers' event called Plus London Two.  This was the first such event I'd ever been to and I had a wonderful time meeting ladies who I'd only ever spoken to virtually before.

During the day, we were lucky enough to spend quite some time at the lovely Anna Scholz's HQ.  We got to try on items from the latest collection and generally had heaps of fun.
