What’s Underneath

(postaus on yhteistyö amerikkalaisen Lane Bryantin kanssa, joten jätin käännöksen tekemättä)

I admit, there are a lot more options for us busty ladies to find gorgeous lingerie these days than a few years back. But there’s one type still lacking.. padded bras for large sizes! I’m in no need of padding when it comes to size, there’s enough extra, haha, but I personally love the shape and comfort that padded bras provide.

I was recently sent a few bra sets to try from Cacique at Lane Bryant, who do a lot of padded bras in large sizes. I asked all my bras to be sent in size 42H and panties in US 22/24. (For reference I wear 42GG in Elomi and 40J in Curvy Kate.) In two sets the size was spot on, but one bra was too small. Below I show you two of them.

So this Smooth Boost Plunge Bra is an actual unicorn for me! It is padded AND the central core is really low. This basically never happens in my size! My boobs are far apart, so this is actually closest I can get to a cleavage like this, so you can imagine that I am in love with this bra! The straps are padded too, so they don’t dig in your shoulders, and the creamy colour of the bra is lovely. (This bra is actually available in amazing 13 colours/prints at the moment, there’s something for everyone.)

This sexy Strappy Back Demi Bra comes in red, black and white, and it has a stunning back detail (see below). This bra was a bit hard to get on because of the back, but it did look lovely – to be honest I felt it went to waste as I don’t have a boyfriend haha! The Hipster Panties are super gorgeous as well, really loved them!

Have you tried Cacique lingerie? And are you with me on the fact that we need more padded bras in large sizes here in the UK?

Excited Friday rambling

One more sleep to Plus London Two! I’m very excited about the event, and meeting so many lovely bloggers who I follow. That also makes me a bit scared, since I don’t personally know anyone there, but I hope that my feeling is right and the ladies are as lovely as they seem in their blogs and will be nice to a blogging beginner like me :).

I THINK I have finally decided my outfit for the evening event, but I’m still not sure what to wear to Anna Scholz! Whatever I will decide to wear, you will see it since I will do an OOTD post about them either tomorrow or on Sunday, depending on how much time I’ve got. Talking about Anna Scholz.. I’m very excited to see her collection with my own eyes, and hopefully try something on too. She designs amazing stuff for plus-size women, and I hope that one day I will be able to afford to buy something that she has designed. If I get a payrise (should know during this month), I will click myself to Anna’s sale and hopefully these leggings are still available. LOVE. (Yes I do know that £30 isn’t that much, but I’m used to £3 leggings, so it would be a huge step up.)

I have bought some bargains this week, before starting my ‘month until NYC-trip frugality’ that NEEDS to be done. I got all my purchases today (except one), and I’m very happy with them! I got my H&M order, and I LOVED everything, and everything fit really well too.

I got this awesome stripey dress, this absolute bargain dress, this very cute jumper and this black scarf. I’m very into stripes at the moment, I could buy everything with stripes in!

I also found some great stuff from eBay. I LOVE Lane Bryant’s Cacique bras, and I found 3 pairs in my size from an UK seller, and I also bought one Lane Bryant top from her. Got all of those for £16 (that included postage), so I’m very happy bunny! Now I don’t have to buy 89265 pairs of bras when I go to NYC ;). And what else did I get.. 2 Old Navy dresses, also from an UK seller. The other one hasn’t arrived yet, but the other one I absolutely love.. it will most probably be my fave dress next summer. So, the only thing I still plan to buy before my NYC-trip is a black flowy skirt. Basically like the one I was wearing today, but solid black. Will have to keep an eye on eBay.

Well, time for bed now. I need to be at Anna Scholz in less than 14 hours, and I still need time to decide the outfit etc. Can’t wait for tomorrow, I’m sure it will be great :)!

Do you have any plans for the weekend? Some of you most probably have same plans than me, and I hope all your outfits are sorted already!
