How I dress the ‘girls’

We all talk so much about what we wear, but what we as ‘fashion bloggers’ don’t usually show or discuss is what we wear under our clothes.  The fit of our bra, a corset, size of our knickers (think Bridget Jones) can influence what are clothes and shape look like on the outside.  After having a baby my bosoms have been through some turmoil, I haven’t been that interested in lingerie for a while.  That is until I came across Freya.

Before I became pregnant I was a B cup, then when I became pregnant they ballooned up to a E, they didn’t really change size when I breastfed.  After 5 months I stopped breastfeeding and the girls literally deflated, they were a pair of saggy spaniel ears and I joked with my friends that I could hold the sky remote under one of them and the tv remote under the other (definitely failed the pen test).

By now I have no interest in them what so ever, bye bye to the cleavage tops, tight fitting tops didn’t look right.  I had absolutely no idea what size I was and to be honest, I didn’t really care or think about it.

After about a year they started to build up again, not sure if this happens to everyone after they breastfed? But they still didn’t feel right and they didn’t look right in clothes either.  I had just given up hope on them.

I often talk about my love of days gone by, with my favourite eras being the 40s & 20s (for style).  Some of the Freya ladies read my blog so they invited my along to their 20s inspired SS12 press day.  We were treated to a complimentary set and fitting and after wearing a size 34C for a year, I discovered I was in fact a 30DD. When I received the beautiful bird print set in the post, my whole idea about lingerie had changed.   I felt supported, I felt comfortable and best of all, they looked damn good! Well until they flop out of the supported bra that is.

I missed the Eveden AW12 press day, but I was sent this stunning pastel green polka dot set.

Do you have a boob of a story about your girls?

      I know, I really did think about how to do it. I wanted to post about lingerie, especially about fitting, but didn’t want to look like a ho bag. Also just taking a photo just of the set was a bit boring I think. But thank you, I really appreciate you saying that xx

    Love this post! I am between two cup sizes :/ it is sooo frustrating. Sometimes I think that my sizes change depending on the brand, but I think I need to go get measured again, somewhere professional.
