Style: Sugar Candy Bra

Oh bras, a constant source of frustration for me. I have drawers full of beautiful bras, most of which I can only wear for 4/5 hours maximum. I am really hypersensitive so any little fold, crease, or slightly itchy fabric can cause me a lot of pain. So when Sugar Candy Bra got in touch I was really intrigued to see if and why they were different.

I've been a long time fan of those stretchy crop top affairs that you often see on shopping channels, but I'll be honest, they offer very little support and no shape at all. So how is this any different? 

Well where Sugar Candy really differs is in the structure. Within the bra are a set of panels which support from under the breast and the side of the breast. The bra fastens in the back like a regular bra and the straps are adjustable. 

As you can see the bra does offer some central definition so you don't suffer from the dreaded mono-boob. 
The band is quite firm, so by the end of the day I was starting to feel the pinch, but it is very wearable and comfortable and perfect for an every day, run around after the kids, relaxed kinda bra. The support is surprisingly great and the shape is good too. Is it an impressive lift? No. But does it do the job while providing comfort? Yes. 

There's a handy size chart on the site, for reference, I'm a 38FF and I'm wearing an XL. But you should be able to work yours out from the chart. I'm really impressed with the Sugar Candy Bra, it offers comfort and support, who could ask for more?

Style: A School Run Less Ordinary

I'd like to think I'm the queen of casual. I don't tend to dress up for much if I'm honest. If can get away with jeans and a jacket or a jumpsuit, I'll do it. BUT even though I like to do casual, I don't like to fade into the background. So I'll always try and make my outfit a little different. Whether that's a dash of colour, a big earring, or even one of my myriad of hair colours. 

Today was all about that little splash of colour courtesy of a sale bargain I picked up from Simply Be. This Orange Leopard Print Top is a complete beaut. I sized up to a 24 though and I'm glad I did, it's just right.

I teamed it with my fave and over-worn jersey peg legs from ASOS, white trainers from H&M and this gorgeous oversized camo jacket I picked up at the weekend from In the Style Curve at Curve Fashion Festival. 

The cute earrings are from Monki, I've been living in them since I got them. My love for massive earrings doesn't seem to be waning yet so long live my Pat Butcher aesthetic. 

Now I don't suppose I'm your average mum on the school run, and I do suppose there'll be a point when Pops gets fed up of her brightly coloured, silly haired mum. But tough, she's going to have to put up with it, because I don't plan on changing!

Style: Flirty Figleaves

Oh hello there! Well it's a bit of a raunchy one today and I'm not even sorry because this lingerie set from Figleaves Curve range is just so damn delicious. As we go crashing into Autumn, the rich colours and sumptuous golden embroidery are everything. 

The attention to detail on this set is massively impressive, I love the gold clasps on the straps, the little tag on the pants and cute bows on both. 

HELLO gorgeous back detail. The split straps, the cheeky bottom detail. It's just all so fabulous! And sexy as hell! And want to know the best part of all? It's actually mega comfortable. I've worn this set all day, out and about and found it really wearable!  

Figleaves have a spectacular range of lingerie including specific plus size lingerie ranges with a great size range, so they're definitely worth checking out!
