I just don’t want to have sex with you – pt1

chitchat

From a very young age the ideal figure is thrust upon us in the form of dolls. Beautifully sculptured bodies, long legs, large bust, makeup and long blonde hair. We all know the dolls I’m on about, said dolls have affected everyone, both male and female. Women desire to look like her, go on extreme diets, plaster faces in makeup and bleach their hair to become something that is simply impossible. It also affects the men in a similar way, it puts in front of them a view of women, of the perfect woman that, again, is impossible to achieve.

Indeed I was, and still am one of these people. I will admit that I have very low body image, those, I feel is due to the social ideals of perfect. I long to be thin, and it has taken me a long time to be comfortable with the way I look. I started to walk, I’d walk miles everyday hiding my body in big hoodies and jeans, walking along main roads. I began to be shouted at by men, shouting comments at my body, these however were all ‘positive comments’, you may think ‘she got told she looks nice she’s fine’. This couldn’t be further from the truth. I began to walk further, I thought that if I lost weight, the comments would stop (especially about my chest), I was wrong the comments began to become more extreme. On one occasion a man attempted to get me into his car, asking how much I’d charge him. After this I refused to go out of the house alone for a while, and I’m not going to lie, I I’m still not a fan.

Yes, I may have a larger chest , but because I do doesn’t mean I have any desire to have sex with you. I may sometimes wear a low cut top, It’s because I’m hot, not because I have any desire to go home with you. Welcome to our silly society.

*i said this would be a series that would run throughout the week, however I have now decided to do these posts over a period of weeks. Hope this is ok with everyone*

I just don’t want to have sex with you – intro

chitchat

One time in our lives we’ll all experience it, the wolf whistles, the ‘alright sexy’, sometimes it can put a little spring in your step, a little ‘ooh I must look good today’ thought in your mind. What happens though, when it gets to much to handle, when this starts happening everyday and random strangers start to follow you, slow down their cars and take pictures of you and try to grab you. Welcome to mine and many other girls world.

During this short series of posts I will be telling you all about my experiences and what it has led me to do in the past. The first post shall be up tomorrow explaining societies view on body shapes, sizes and how we portray ourselves to the world.

Much love

Hello Sailor – ootd

Fashion

20130719-145701.jpg
<br /

Sadly I won't be travelling the seven seas this summer, but today I wanted to be a pirate so out came this iron fist dress from ebay. The 50s style skirt (promise it's there) emphasises my small waist as does the waistband, while the button detailing on the chest and the halter neck add some nice detailing. This dress is fab for spinning in. I was feeling that piratey I even put my hair in a reverse fish tail and started swaying side to side. (Oh I do like to be beside the sea side)

Are you going away anywhere nice?

Tutti Rouge Lilliana review

Bra Posts

20130719-121206.jpg

In one of my posts I mentioned that I tried this lovely bra on, so I though I’d give it a little review. Sadly I didn’t buy this bra as they didn’t have the correct size in stock (maybe next time).

Fit – I would say this bra is a very small fit, both in the cup and back. I’m a happy clappy 28J, however, when I tried this bra on the 28 band didn’t even come close to closing. I then tried on the 30HH and the band was much better, however the cups were a tad too small, so in this bra I’d be a 30J. I advise to go up in both the cup and band, especially if buying online.

Design – This bra is a beautiful girlie bubblegum pink colour, with delicate ribbon detail around the upper section of the cups, gore and lower part of the straps. The cups are also lightly padded for a little more rounded shape. The straps also have cute heart detailing, making it extra fun and flirty. The bra boasts fully adjustable straps so you can alter the support level to your preferences, there is also 3 hooks GG-J for that extra support.

This bra is cute and girly, from ribbon detailing to the heart detailing. If you’re a girly girl or a lover of the colour pink this bra is for you. Hope this helps

Something special with brastop

Bra Posts, chitchat

Brastop.com is where a busty girls dream comes true, carrying sizes from D to K in a range of brands such as Freya and Curvy Kate at upto 60% off the RRP. Guess what, you lucky lot get to see their first ever viral video. The video was made using stop motion (think Wallace and Gromit style). The video features the beautiful model Freya Pibworth, who was the January winner of the Brastop modelling competition. Brastop encourage ” customers of all shapes and size to enter, with the aim of liberating the word “curvy” from a size stigma and show that curvy is not a size but a shape that many of our customers have.” – who knows I might even enter sometime!

blogpic

A large amount of work went into this video, which consists of 192 individual shots , with Freya coming alive from a drawing and creating havoc on the brastop desks decorated with bras, magazines and spotty mugs (which I very much like).

The lovely marketing manager Kimberly says , “Affordable lingerie, excellent customer service and a light-hearted company… these are the three things Brastop.com strive towards on a daily basis and I think this video conveys our fun nature perfectly.”

I couldn’t agree with the above statement more, I was left smiling after watching the video, it made me feel warm and fuzzy inside.

Want to see the video for yourself, well guess what you can, I know you’ll love it as much as I do!

The lovely people at brastop have given me a code for my readers to recieve 10% off their next order, act fast however, the code expires 2nd August 2013. The code is ‘BAB10’. So get shopping!

Pepperberry vintage shirt dress review

Fashion

20130718-210023.jpg

A while ago I bought this lovely dress from pepperberry and I’ve wanted more prints ever since. So, if you’re pondering buying this dress or just curious about a small section of the pepperberry range, look no further, this post has got you covered.

The dress come in two pieces, a little peach under lining (cover up stomach etc as the dress itself is very sheer) and the dress itself. The lining clings to the curves of the body, making it an ideal base, the dress itself does the same, skimming over all the right bits. The sleeves cut off just below the shoulder, ensuring no bra straps are shown. The dress (on 5’6 me) cuts off just below the knee, at the slimmest part of my leg, making it look like my legs are that slim all the way up (I likey). Due to the fact pepperberry sizes come in curvy,really curvy, super curvy and super duper curvy, the waist it pulled in, rather than being swamped by fabric like in some other high street dresses. There is also a cleverly concealed zip at the side, rather than at the back which makes the whole dressing process so much easier. There are buttons on the chest so you can decide on the level of chest you want out, there is also ruching detailing on the chest which has caused arguments among bloggers alike, some like it, others find that it draws unwanted volume to the chest area. I however, like it, I think it adds a little something special to an otherwise pretty normal dress.

I do however have an issue with this dress, this issue isn’t with the dress itself but is with the belt, it simply does nothing for you, doesn’t pull you in, it just kind of hangs. I swiftly changed the belt for my waist belt and the dress transforms. My bust looks busty (?) my waist cinched in and my hips are the perfect end to an hourglass. If you’re an hourglass who likes dresses then this is a must. I’m off to maybe buy the spotty one :D.

A knicker box of glory

Fashion

So you’ve found that perfect bra or bikini top, then you start looking for the matching bottoms, and suddenly you’re met with different cuts and you just don’t know what to do. Well never fear as Hannah is here to give you a little guidance to help not only your boobs but also make your booty look bootylicious!

The I WANT LONGER LEGS/SMALLER BUM

For those of you who’d go to any length to get model long legs, have no fear help is here. Unfortunately we can’t change the length of our legs, but what we can do is trick the eye, if this is you, then something like this is the answer.

20130718-160536.jpg

This lovely item is from the brand Kris Line which is stocked at brastop. Now brastop is one of my favourite places to shop, not only for bras but also for knickers as they have a range of knickers that are just £2 these knickers are from brands such as Freya, Kris Line etc, gorgeous knickers for a fraction of the price :D. Back to why you should wear this style. By finding a higher cut knicker this will make the leg appear longer and making you look like you’re six foot tall. A dipped cut in the stomach area will also make you appear taller, as this extends the torso, making you look twice as tall. This style is also good for people who have larger bums and wish to hide them, as by extending the torso and legs it balances the proportions out.

The I WANT TO HIDE MY TUMMY

If you want to hide your tummy for any reason your best bet is high waisted, and it’s your lucky day, they’re back in fashion.

20130718-161324.jpg

I found this pair at Boux avenue, but lots of brands do them like Curvy Kate. This is simple, the high waist will help suck you in and cut you off at your smallest point, your waist, pulling you in. For extra lean-ness, go for a style with black on the outer side as this will streamline the figure.

The MY BOOBS ARE TO AMAZING FOR EYES TO SEE

If you want to detract attention from your chest, simply aim it somewhere else with a brightly printed knicker.

20130718-162347.jpg

The above is again from brastop for a fantastic £2. By having a bold print the eyes will be guided somewhere else you’d like to be on show. This idea can be switched around, if you want your bum to be hidden.

The above ideas are both for bikinis and underwear sets 🙂

Hope this helped someone

Review – Curvy Kate Wild Bra

Bra Posts

G’on guess what I bought…..THE WILD BRA! My first ever curvy Kate, and may I say it fits lovely in my collection. Without further a do, here’s a little review.

20130718-113312.jpg

Firstly the fit, like in other reviews of the Curvy Kate range the band is claimed to be quite loose, and I agree. I would suggest going down in the band in this range and up either one or two cups. I firstly tried this bra on in a 30H, however the band and was far too loose, I then tried on the 28HH, the band was a teeny weeny bit loose but sadly they don’t do a 26 band, however all I need to do is tighten the band a little and all Is well. As said I tried on the HH, I could have done with a J (possibly a JJ) in this bra as there is a little overspill but nothing that a little tucking won’t fix. Sadly the store didn’t have this bra in a 28J, but I was perfectly happy tucking my boobs in and wiggling the underwire right under the breast tissue (fits lovely when you do that). This bra gives your boobs a lovely rounded shape and makes them look like the models in the above image!

Next the design. The bra is gorgeous, from the animal print mesh covering, to the satin pink cups and the beautiful lace detailing, this bra is both elegant and fun. The straps are a cream colour, this cream colour matches the colour of the bows which decorate the gore and low section of straps and the lace detailing. Using this detailing ties the design together beautifully. This bra has light padding and 3 section cups, these features allow for a gorgeous uplift and shape. The straps of this bra are fully adjustable and the band boasts 3 hooks, allowing for varied and full support.

In conclusion this bra is grrrreat and I just couldn’t keep my paws off it, (see what I did). This is to be the first of many Curvy Kate purchases. Hope this helped anyone considering purchasing this beautiful bra.

Much love

Bravissimo fitting experience

Bra Posts, chitchat

So today me and my friend decided to go to Liverpool shopping, I needed bras so bravissimo was on the cards. It was my first ever time in Bravissimo Liverpool (although I have been many times in another branch) and it was a lovely experience. Walking in I was met by the bright smiley faces of staff and a large selection of the Pepperberry range with a selection of bras at the back. Upon arrival I was asked if I needed any help, which is always nice. I then finished looking at the sale bras (I REALLY wanted the bras on my recent lingerie lusts post). So with bras in hand I went upstairs to book my fitting.

20130718-000604.jpg

Climbing the carpet clad stairs I arrived at the waiting area, beautifully decorated with pink sofas, a water dispenser, images of bravissimo models, magazines and lots of husbands! Despite there being a large que I was told my fitting would be in the next 10minutes. Myself and my less busty friend then waited for what seemed like two minutes until my name was called and off I toddled with my lovely fitter and sale bras in hand to my dressing room.

20130718-000432.jpg

Every bravissimo dressing room is the same, fitted with a large mirror, silk dressing gown, numerous hooks, a stool and the newest issue of the bravissimo catalogue. The fitter introduced herself (can’t remember her name but she was lovely as all bravissimo fitters are), asked if I had been to bravissimo before, she then gave me a little background to bravissimo to refresh my memory. Then the fitting started. I was asked what size bra I was wearing and how it felt on, she asked if I could remove my top so she could see how my bra fitted. She checked the fitting of my bra and explained that the bra fit fine and that a 28J was my true size. NO TAPE MEASURES I was them asked what my favourite style of bra was, I explained that it was plunge and then off she went on an adventure to the stock room, and may I say a very successful one!

20130717-233435.jpg

She then returned with a gorgeous tutti rouge bra (reviews to come) and a satine bra (previously reviewed) in white. She asked what I though of them, I thought they were fab! I was asked if I’d like her to pop out when I tried the bras on, or whether she was ok to stay, I asked her to pop out and so she did. First I tried on the Satine bra, I called that it was ok for her to come in. She then adjusted the bra straps and explained it was a lovely fit, which it was, but I already had this bra (see they’re basically telepathic!), next up was the tutti rouge. I had a little issue with this bra, the 28 was simply far too tight. I told her I needed help, she readjusted me then confirmed that I was a 30 back in this brand, she went back to the stock room and returned with the bra in a 30HH. It fit YAY, however I had my eye on a little sale item (maybe next time tutti rouge). I then tried on said sale item and she checked the fit for me. I explained I only wanted to buy the sale bra, she didn’t push me to buy anything else and treated me like a friend. she then told me about the pepperyberry line and after asking my clothes sizes explained I would be a 10sc, she then left me to get dressed and off I toddled with my curvy Kate wild bra in a beautiful bravissimo bag, wrapped in tissue paper and sealed with a sticker.

20130717-235135.jpg

I’ve always had good experiences in bravissimo, they’re always so lovely and make the experience very relaxing, I couldn’t recommend them more. Hope this helped anyone who was thinking about having a fitting!

Today I went shopping and thought on this bright sunny day that I’d share what I wore with you. Sadly I couldn’t get a very good picture to show you my whole outfit so have included pictures of just the top.

Today I wore the most exiting and newest edition to my wardrobe, my first ever crop top from h&m. Sadly I couldn’t finds online but I’m sure you’ll be able to find it in your local shop, this was £5 in the sale. I pulled this tight around my middle to show off my tiny waist. This was purchased in a size 12 so is a little baggy on my size 10 frame, but fits over my chest with no gaping, I think a size 10 would have also fit but they sadly had no size 10 :(. The bottom is rather boring, I just put on some high waisted black leggings from topshop, allowing my stomach to be sucked in and my features (hips and waist) enhanced.
