the superbra, do you know your size?

As most of you may have already noticed I am rather top heavy. I first noticed my body changing at the tender age of ten, at first I though I was weird and the girls at ballet class would often make fun of me resulting in my leaving my favourite saturday afternoon hobby, girls we can be so cruel. By the age of 13 I was wearing a DD cup and before I knew it I was graduating high school with a whopping 34F chest. I would watch the girls in Topshop picking up the delicate pretty looking bras knowing I would be wear a Marks and Sparks special, comfortable and practical. It wasn't until I started working and earning my own money until I realised there were so much more to choose from and sometimes it can look pretty too. 

 Panache have been one of my favourite lingerie brands for many years specialising in underwear for the bustier girl. And when Beautiful Lingerie contacted me to do a review I knew straight away I would gravitate toward Panache. BL have a range of lingerie from sizes AAA to KK so there is something for everyone. Not only do they stock conventional items they have a wide range of nursing bras and post op mastectomy bras too. I opted for a safe option and black underwear has always been a favourite of mine, not very summery I know but I just fell in love with this set. Beautifully structured with a vintage feel, the high waisted knicker sit beautifully and the bra offers great support. I wear a 34H right now I was measured professionally a few months ago and I suggest before buying online pop into your local lingerie store and ask them to measure you properly, I went to Bravissimo but make sure you either call before hand to make appointment or your prepared to wait a while, it's always busy. Wearing the correct fitting bra is essential not only for your health but for how you look and feel in clothing. And girls big bras can still look sexy.

  1. Beautiful set! Unfortunately I'm at the other end of the scale and aren't as top heavy as I'd like, but I'll definitely be checking out BL :) x
