Plus size brand Pink Clove has continued to go from strength to strength since its launch in 2013. Offering a range of fast fashion items in sizes 16-32, their prices are just as attractive as their garments. I own a number of Pink Clove items and still wear items I bought when the brand first launched, including my beloved Red Tartan Skater Dress. Late last year I was sent a number of items by the lovely Pink Clove PR team, and today I am going to share with you the Pleated Skater Skirt With Contrast Waistband (now sold out in pink but was £14.00, UK sizes 16-28).
In December, I ordered some bras from Polish lingerie brand Ewa Michalak to make the most of a site-wide discount that was in place. I wanted to get my hands on some PL (plunge) bras, and so I added the PL Słowianki Bra to my basket.
I have always had wide calves. I inherited my dad's thick rugby player legs and I have always had difficulty getting a decent fit in any kind of trousers or jeans. It doesn't help that I have a 19" difference between my waist and hips (currently at 32" and 51" respectively) but my thighs are also pretty chunky and don't like to be contained by fabrics, especially those of the non-stretch kind. My calves haven't usually caused an issue with leg wear garments, but they most certainly have with boots.
Every autumn I eagerly go to shoe shops and make online orders in a bid to find the perfect knee high boots...but every time I am sorely let down by how the boots fit me in the calf. They simply don't! I have tried all the usual suspects, including Evans, Yours Clothing, and even Duo Boots, but none have given me a perfect fit. They have either not been wide enough in the calf, or the width of the foot area has been insufficient. I know, I know...I have a very awkward body! But I strive to find a decent fit in footwear as well as in clothing, so my search for perfect boots has been a long-lasting one.
Ewa Michalak has been making the SM bra, which is essentially an unpadded balconette, for over a year now. Some months back I was sent some bras to review and today I will be sharing with you the limited edition SM Czarodziejka Bra (no longer available at Ewa Michalak, but the SM Wróżka is similar):

I have been reviewing quite a number of Ewa Michalak lingerie items lately, and that's because I placed a fairly large order just before Christmas to make the most of a special discount EM were offering, and I am now working my way through that order with my reviews here on the blog. When I placed my order, I picked a selection of bras and briefs from those that were discounted, and the set I am reviewing today is the BM Bibi Czarny Tulipan.
