Hello again and welcome to the first instalment of a brand new series on my blog, ‘busty on a budget’. Within this series I’ll be telling you all about the style gems I find that fit the busty, hourglass figure and on a budget. Without further ado….say hello to the crop top.
Crop tops can be a pain, especially if you’re busty, with your usual size usually not covering very much! This was definitely the case for me. After many trips to many shops and trying in many different sizes I’ve found the shop that caters for the busty figure, covering your chest in low and behold…YOUR NORMAL SIZE.
This shop isn’t expensive, nor is it hard to find, it’s the humble high street favourite, primark. Now, sadly I forgot to take pictures but if you take a peek on kel kitty’s blog, you can find pictures and another post all about crop tops.
You can buy the crop tops in your usual size (without the boob), with no stretching or escaping bra to be seen, and as its primark they come in a range of sizes and aren’t very expensive at all. My favourite was a wine coloured number with white hearts, it was gorgeous.
Take a peek at your local primark and tell me what your favourite was.
Happy shopping, much love.
Hello there, I am Hannah and welcome to my first every blog post, I must admit I’m a little scared! Before I delve into the world of blogging I feel I should tell you a little about myself and why I exactly I, of all people found myself writing this blogpost in the early hours of a Friday morning whilst wearing a Christmas dressing gown…grab yourself a cuppa…and go!
I am currently a student planning on world domination (I’m not even kidding), but I’m one of the good guys, promise! I doubt however, that you wish to know my life story so I won’t bore you with that, although if you want it ask away and I promise i’ll answer. My bra journey begins with my mother and I in a supermarket, all was well until the age of about 11 (early bloomer), I no-longer fitted into the flimsy training bras and the quest was on! Instead of buying a larger cup size however, mum went for a larger back size (ladies this is very wrong, a post shall soon follow) until well, we ran out of numbers. So off we trotted with 13 year old me to bravissimo, I was no longer a C – cup, but now an F! Yes that’s right an F, 34F to be precise, still have the bra somewhere aswell. You may think this would be the end of the story but no, a few years later and with the measurements of 38-30-42 and about a 3 stone weight loss I am now a very full 28J (a fitting is soon needed). That’s the boob history, now the blogging part.
I was always being stuck in beige bras (post to follow) and felt this was the only way, until I stumbled across two lovely ladies blogs, these being fullerfigurefullerbust and kel-kitty, they taught be bras for big busts weren’t all beige and look like something your Nan would wear, the bras, like the person wearing them could be glorious and I didn’t need to hide my figure in mums baggy tops! So, with this new found knowledge off I toddled to debenhams where I made a horrid discovery.
I was quite happily trying to bras when a young girl wanting a bra fitting came into the cubicle next to me. Firstly the bra fitter took out a tape measure, (the first big no no I learnt from reading blogs), she then proclaimed the girl to be a 36C, the young girl in question had been looking at bras near me and I could tell even with my untrained eye that she was most certainly not a 36C.I wanted to burst through the wall and tell her STOP – but felt she might object! This ladies is why I have created this blog, to educate and help young girls get properly fitted and not be scared to hide their fantastic figures but to flaunt them with their heads held high and with that, ciao for now!
