Lingerie and Lace: Parfait Kitty Babydoll and Navabi Lace Trench Coat

Something saucy for midway through lingerie week here on the blog – I paired the simple yet sexy Kitty babydoll from Parfait with the extravagance of my lace trench coat from Navabi. I call this look High Class Flasher!

Cracking Kingfisher: Elomi Anoushka Half Cup Paddded Bra in Kingfisher

I love it when firm favourite styles are released in alternate colourways at the start of a new season. The minute I saw Elomi’s latest vibrant Kingfisher colourway for their Anoushka style I wanted it! This fresh take gives a new lease on life to an old favourite, with an instant update.

Modern Vintage: Parfait Lingerie Charlotte Bra in Dusty Pink

I am always pleased to discover new plus size lingerie brands. There are a proliferation of D+ cup brands these days, but there are still not that many options for larger band sizes. I was recently contacted by Parfait lingerie and asked if I’d like to review some of their pieces. On visiting the website, I was pleased to find that Parfait offer some really servicable everyday basics, along with some more stand out show stopper pieces. I browsed for quite a while, and thought I should perhaps err on the side of sensible. But me being me, I instead opted for something a bit of wow factor.

9 Tips for Body Confidence

Body confidence and body positivity is very much about mind set. It’s more about how you feel about your body, and how you connect with it, than about your body itself. The following tips are not about changing your body but about changing your mind set, and learning to feel confident in your body. Let me know if you have any of your own, or anything you want to add!

Lust List: My Top Picks from Simply Be this Summer

Simply Be was the first plus size brand I was really introduced to in the UK. My mum has always been a fan of catalogue shopping, and when I went to her place I would flick through the Simply Be catalogue bending down the corner of the pages I wanted stuff on. Lots of fantasy shopping back when I was too poor to do any actual real shopping. In the past few years especially I have found that the Simply Be fit has improved loads and every season there is more and more I want to wear. My brother is getting married in the Caribbean in November, and so I am constantly on the trawl for gorgeous summery pieces to take with me, and I was having a little wander through their website this weekend and found some awesome stuff. As I haven't done a lust list in a while I thought I would put some of my fave pieces from Simply Be together for you guys...

Perfect Penny: Voodoo Vixen Emerald Penny Dress


I first fell in love with this Voodoo Vixen dress over 18 months ago, on my very first trip to their website. But I have total dress attention deficit disorder. Somehow it slipped of my radar, and then I just got distracted by something else pretty and shiny. However, Voodoo Vixen had a stand at Curvy Con and I saw this little Emerald beauty again and just had to have it!

Folky Festino: Cut For Evans Tiered Denim Dress

The annual Cut for Evans collection is usually pretty exciting. Each year Evans runs a competition for recent fashion graduates to design a catwalk inspired plus size collection. The collections are daring and different and always worth checking out. This year Gabriella Seal won with her festival inspired collection, and I love the boho vibes that these pieces are giving off. You can check out the whole collection here, but I was particularly taken with The Cut Denim Dress.

Rocking It Your Own Way: River Island Plus Red Bardot Maxi

Come summer I am always on the hunt for a couple of statement maxi dresses. Cool, easy to wear and fabulous on plus size figures, I live in maxi dresses in the warmer weather. This year the casual maxi that's stood out for me is this Bardot version from River Island Plus.
