Every woman loves to receive a gift which has been chosen especially for her. But no man wants to feel like that awkward guy in a lingerie boutique, trying to keep a low profile as he haplessly browses racks of lingerie with rapidly declining confidence in what his love would like to receive (or wear, for that matter).
I love you. How many times do we say this to others? It rolls off the tongue easily, meaningfully and truthfully. How often do you say it to yourself? Lingerie may be a necessity; an everyday basic that as a fuller busted woman you can't go without, however it's been portrayed as something you splash out on to impress someone else.
It was just another Thursday night in my ordinary week when I came across the opportunity to participate in a photography and video campaign for one of my most loved stores Brava and the brand Elomi.

Imagine walking along the beach or across town on a hot summer’s day with an open back dress, letting the breeze cool your skin. Until you lose your sense of calm as that same breeze reminds you that you’re wearing the industrial 'nude' bra that isn’t as inconspicuous as its colour represents
Do you love the latest plunge style fashions but struggle to find the support you need without ruining the sexy neckline? When designers make beautiful dresses and tops, they often forget that women with bigger cups exist.

Many of us have an idea of our bra size, but often we pick up the same bra size that we have always worn without taking into account body changes such as weight loss, weight gain, pregnancy, menopause and various hormonal changes.
Another Ewa Michalak favourite, this blush pink bra reminds us of a warm spring day. Light enough as an everyday basic, the Ewa Michalak Pink Marzipan S Bra can be a staple for your outfits. Made of fine matte knitwear, delicate lace runs the length of the band.
Customers constantly tell us how much they ‘hate bra shopping’ and that it’s their ‘worst nightmare finding a bra’.

Here are our tips on what to focus on when bra shopping for a fuller bust.
Here’s a bra specifically made for side support – something a lot of fuller-busted women want. The side support in Freya Hero allows your bust to sit closer to your chest rather than under your arms. This essential is a bra drawer necessity as a popular everyday bra. Designed with a four-sectioned cup, adding extreme structure to the fit, you’ll find the side support panel...
Are you worried about “back fat”? If your answer is yes, you are in good company – most of us cringe at the thought. But contrary to popular opinion, a looser band is not going to help. You need your bra band to be nice, firm and snug otherwise it’ll ride up, give you no support, and it will dig in even more at the back and be more obvious. We understand that it can be...
