Autumn/Winter 2011: Taylor strapless review 0

For anyone who has read my photo blog of how I utilised the Freya Deco strapless, you’ll know that for a 28/30 backed girl finding a strapless can be like being between hell or high water. A hackneyed phrase has never been more apt than describing a strapless bra for me which is both comfortable, pretty, and a great fit really is as rare as hen’s teeth.

The Deco is a really practical wonderful bra and has become my go-to bra for any strapless outfit and I thought it couldn’t be rivalled but it has been beaten to the ground by the stunning Taylor strapless.

The subtle yet knockout detailing of the striped sheer fabric overlay, bronze felt stripe and ribbon and strip of lace is so sophisticated. It takes a practical item and injects a bit of sex appeal that the plain Deco version was lacking (not to worry poor Deco, you’ll always have your place in my heart and my wardrobe!).

London Fashion Week: Are visible bras and bra straps a fashion faux pas? 0

If you flick through some of the snaps from London Fashion week you may see a surprising amount of visible bras, cutaway dresses and sheer fabrics. These trends all look fantastic on the red carpet but is this a trend that us mere mortals can rock too?

Some bras are all about fit and function and some are made to be seen. I don’t see why this look should be feared for a night out; if you’ve got the confidence to wear a gorgeous bra under a sheer top this Autumn then why not just do it?! Ellie Goulding is!
