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

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

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

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

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

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!

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!

Pepperberry vintage shirt dress review

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

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
