Common Bra Problems

Corset Image

 

Every woman has to deal with an annoying bra problem every now and again. I know I do. From finding the right size to finding the right design and style. The bra problems never end. It changes as our body changes. I struggled a lot with my lingerie in general especially during pregnancy. My boobs were growing at an alarmingly rate, and I got sick and tired of buying a new bra every few weeks. Thankfully, all that is a thing of the past but I do still miss my pregnancy boobs, lol.

Here are some ways of dealing with the common bra problems you may be facing:

 

Wrong size

A recent survey has shown that 60% of women are walking around wearing the wrong size of bra. Are you one of them? The best way to ensure you are wearing the right size is to get measured. Debenhams and M&S are great places to get measured professionally for free.

 

Straps that dig

Make sue your bras come with adjustable straps so that you can alter the fit. The straps should not dig in or fall off your shoulders.

 

Lack of bras

You should have different bras in various designs for different your outfits. If you can’t afford too many, the minimum you should aim for is 2 blacks, 2 whites, 2 nudes, and an extra 2 in any colour or design you like. That way you never run out of bras to wear. Also, go for bras with straps you can take off, and change into various styles to fit your outfit.

 

Visible bras

Your bras should not be visible, unless this is intentional. When wearing sheer clothes, go for underwear in flesh tones that match your skin colour, not the outfit.

 

Small boobs

Balcony bras flatter small boobs the most because they provide an enhanced neckline with excellent uplift. Half-cup bras with pads at the sides also flatter small boobs.

 

Big boobs

A bra with a thick band will support big boobs better because they often provide better support.

Sandals Wishlist August 2016

If you have been keeping an eye on my outfit pots, you would how much I love my sandals in the summer. I get so warm during the day, so I usually avoid wearing shoes or sneakers. I like my sandals comfortable and stylish, and I like to have quite a few pairs in my wardrobe each summer. I must confess I shopped a little too much this summer. I got carried away with the amazing sales and designs in the shops. I am all sorted now I hope as far as sandals are concerned, but if I cam across a little extra cash, I may spoil myself some more. Life is for the living, lol.

I currently have these 3 sandals on my mind just incase anyone wants to spoil me, wink wink…

 

Fitflop Lattice Surf Flip Flops £55 £44

I am yet to own any flip-flops and I think I need a pair at least. I had some pairs back in the day, many moons ago, before it was giving the fancy name ‘Flip Flops’, and I remember finding them so casual and comfortable. This pair from Jones Bootmaker Sandals Collection is a stunning choice. I love the chic, simple design, and the pretty colour. Good to see it on sale too.

 

 

Faith Black 'Daisy' high crossover sandals Image

 

I have always been a lover of Faith shoes in general. I find them so stylish and chic. So I am not too surprised to find myself lusting after this beautiful black crossover sandals. It would fit into my wardrobe nicely, and it is super affordable too at £35.

 

Karoly two-tone wedge sandals by Lacoste £80

This wedge beauty right is one of my current favourites. I love the wedge heel, the colour is also perfect. I have nothing like this beauty in my wardrobe at the moment, so I have my eyes on this one. I think it would look amazing paired with a nice summer dress.

 

Are you a sandals lover like me? What do you think of these three sandals? Which is your favourite?

OOTD: Styling Shades of Blue

Shades of Blue Image

Blue is one of my favourite colours ever. There is something so cool about the colour blue. I can’t quite explain my love for the colour but I am so in love with it. There is something clean and clear about the colour blue. Many pieces and accessories in my wardrobe are blue in colour and I like it that way but I have to start to reduce the amount of blue items I do have for the sake of variety and options.. In these photos, I also have a few shades of blue in the background. Can you spot them? Lol..

I find blue so easy to style, and that is 1 reason why I wear a lot of it. Here are 5 ways you could style your blue pieces and accessories this summer:

 

Pair with White

You can pair your blue piece with white like I did in this outfit post. A blue top paired with a white skirt or pants always look good.

 

Add Pair

Or you can team up your blue piece with black for a better contrast. Denim paired with black always looks spot on.

 

Wear Stripes

Summer fashion is all about stripes, and the colour blue always looks amazing when paired with stripes. So go for it! You can draw inspiration from my outfit here.

Matchy Matchy

You can always go matchy matchy with blue. Denim on denim always looks fabulous. Just add some black pumps and you are good to go.

 

Prints

Blue always looks good paired with prints. Blue prints on a white base looks effortlessly chic.
