large cup lingerie

Freya SS12 preview – my favourites 0

Last week I popped along to 28 Portland Place to have a nose at the SS12 collection from Eveden, and dribble over beautiful lingerie. With the Mini Divas in attendance too (they recommended highly the chocolate brownies at the launch) it was amazing to have a sneak peek at the luscious large cup lingerie we will all be sporting next season.

I was particularly in love with the range of 20′s and 50′s inspired fabric prints on the forthcoming ranges, there is a real sense of pattern and vintage references.

Things that made me go ooooooh: More

Sex and the city vintage style 0

I am currently running a little book club over on my blog, and us Diva Readers are enjoying the classic novel The Best of Everything, by Rona Jaffe. ( do come and join in the fun!).

This novel is set and written in the 50′s, and precedes Sex and the City by 40 years, yet the themes are the same. Style, women in the workplace, fast paces New York, friendships, relationships. More

Beauty and the basics 0

Hello Fitting Talk readers!

I have been away from this blog for a little while as my family and I popped to a rainy Cornwall for a week. I do love the fresh air and light down there, such a beautiful part of the country – just a shame it chose to tip it down for much of our hols!  My girls loved it too – I am mum to toddler twin girls – check them out enjoying some Padstow chips :)

So, back to the business of bras.

Lingerie love – a legacy 0

I have had a fascination with lingerie since my teenage years.

At the age of 16 I worked in the lingerie section of  a retailers for Saturday job and I adored the different designs, shapes, cups and fits I suddenly discovered. I think my weekend wages were ploughed back into my new found passion but I was armed with new knowledge about well fitted bras, and far too much experience of older ladies and gravity….Later, for an A level art project I looked into the history of underwear, and the love of lingerie has stayed with me since those days.

I have always been well endowed since a young age – I was the girl in school with big boobs at getting my bra straps pinged by the boys and avoiding the swim days to keep my figure hidden. I loved to wear baggy clothes ( hey, it was the 90′s and I was an indie kid) but, sadly, spent a lot of time hiding my figure as I felt embarrassed at the attention my chest seemed to get.  At 18 I was  32DD with 26″ waist – how I would LOVE to have those stats these days – I am a 32 F and size 12 waist/hips, not an easy combination for dress sizes I can tell you.
