Did I tell you guys what I got up to during London Fashion week this season? Oops, if you aren’t following me on Instagram then you may (or may not) have missed out on that ship. But, I’ll share one of my highlights from this season with you guys.
Before I do, I want to let you guys understand that every fashion week I attend, I try to make my post as personal as possible. Especially on the blog. I share all the instant runway bits on my social media and recap on my personal experience like I did for Milan Fashion Week and Malta Fashion Week here on the blog.
So, for London Fashion Week SS18, Figleaves invited me to join them at designer Edeline Lee’s presentation. I was excited, especially at the idea of hanging out backstage and getting to meet the designer. I shared all of this action on their Instagram stories and on mine too. Underneath all the pretty clothes the models at the presentation strutted in, were lingerie from Figleaves.
…Right, let’s talk about What Lies beneath and let’s get intimate with Figleaves. For a couple of years now, I’ve bought most of my lingerie from Figleaves. Buying lingerie especially bras, in general, is tricky for a girl bigger than a DD. When I say tricky, it’s everything from fit to prices, styles and variety of brands. I still wonder when would the fashion industry start catering to the need of busty women… So what’s a small-ish woman with big busts to do? Here’s what I’ve done
- Got my size right. Sometimes I go up on down in size depending on the brand or even style. Once you’ve got this right, THAT IS ALL. Bigger bust bras don’t come cheap, so for me, this is very important that everything is right and perfect. Nowadays, you get a lot more support online with fittings.
- I found an online store that caters to larger sizes, and offer lots of brands and styles. I buy almost everything online, it was about time I started buying lingerie online too.
- For variety, I had to start thinking outside ‘the box’. I mean, the world, wide, web has a lot to offer. A lot more than I possibly can find in stores.
- Embraced more risque styles. Though I might have an obsession with black lingerie, I’ve embraced all colours and designs.
Here are some of my favourites from Figleaves
If like me you are blessed with an amazing pair of boobies, let me know your thoughts on this.
