Bravissimo Christina!

A well-known fashion retailer has been selling a bra (like hot cakes, if you’ll excuse the pun), which increases your bust appearance by two sizes. There has been such a demand lately for bust enhancing bras, that this same retailer has now produced a bikini that does the same thing, so the store has introduced a gel-filled bikini top that will boost your assets by two cup sizes. Not since the ‘Wonderbra’ of the Eighties has there been such a desire by women to increase their bust size and also replicate the classic hourglass figure of the Fifties. Finally it is recognised that real womanly curves are something to aspire to, not hide away in baggy tops.

This new trend has been partly inspired by Christina Hendricks, who plays Joan Holloway in the American TV show Mad Men. For those of you who haven’t seen Christina, she is a vision of loveliness, a healthy size 14, real curves, big boobs, (that are not surgically enhanced) and she wears them well, (take a look at Google). Her boobs aren’t disguised, she dresses to enhance and flatter her bust at all times. She was voted the ‘sexiest woman in the world’ in 2010 in a poll of female readers taken by Esquire magazine, and Vivienne Westwood has described Hendricks as “the embodiment of beauty.” She is a great role model for Bravissimo ladies (even if she doesn’t know it yet).

To all of our wonderful Curvy, Really Curvy and Super Curvy Bravissimo ladies, we are in a very fortunate position. We have those much coveted assets for real, with no need for gel enhanced bras. So let’s help Christina put curves firmly back on the fashion map, and celebrate our boobs. We will promise to do our bit, by continuing to give you beautiful, sexy and supportive bras and Pepperberry will keep bringing you fabulous clothes designed with your boobs in mind. And if you want to follow in the style footsteps of Christina, check out these great dresses.

Pepperberry's new Belted Maxi Dress

Pepperberry's new Belted Maxi Dress

Bravissimo ladies brace yourselves! The first few lines of the new Pepperberry Autumn collection are here. The floral theme seems to be running and running, and Pepperberry have chosen some gorgeous florals, from the ditsy small prints of the Belted Maxi Dress to the more botanical inspired flower of the Rose Belted Dress.

The maxi dress trend does not seem to be going away, but this year, unlike any other, maxi’s will be featuring in autumn/winter collections instead of just spring/summer. The Belted Maxi Dress as mentioned above, is a very stylish maxi. Fully lined, it features a cute little frill sleeve. Included with the dress is the plaited brown belt, which can be taken off if preferred. This dress would look great for autumn accessorised with brown leather riding boots and a faux sheepskin gilet for that boho look.

Another bohemian inspired dress is the Paisley Frill Dress, this dress is extremely feminine with its layered floaty look, and it has a waterfall style hem and features a detachable plaited brown belt. The dress is available in a pink and blue paisley print, and comes with a pink cami. This dress could be bought now and worn through late summer into autumn, when you could accessorise it with knee high boots and a waterfall longline cardi in a soft grey or oatmeal.

Back to florals; check out the Ditsy Frill Blouse, this is another botanical style print. A sheer blouse in greys and neutrals with delicate ruffles, makes this extra feminine. At the moment you could pair up with some shorts or a floaty skirt for a really girly look. In the autumn this will look great with a grey tailored jacket & jeans, or it could be worn to the office to soften up a suit.
