BAG YOURSELF A BAG

Q: What does a women love just as much as a killer pair of shoes?
A: A killer bag.

If you haven’t already laid your eyes on our fabulous bags by Pepperberry, then you must take a look! The party season is nearly here and that is closely followed by the holiday season and we have bags for every occasion.

Oil Skin Weekend Bag

Oil Skin Weekend Bag


If you are sneaking in a cheeky Christmas break, we have the ultimate in weekend style. The Oil Skin Weekend Bag is available in an on trend ethnic print, this is a weekend bag to show off. It is fully lined and it’s a good size, so will fit all your bits and pieces with extra room left over. There is a matching Oil Skin Satchel available, a great option for everyday use and a matching purse, the Oil Skin Purse, which is also fully lined.

For glitzy and glam Christmas nights out, a few sequins and a bit of satin are a must. Whether you are opting for a bodycon fitted cocktail dress, a fifties style prom dress, or full length ball gown, the essential partner to a knock out dress is a cute, sexy clutch bag. Pepperberry have a great choice for any colour and style of evening dress.

The Silver Diamante Clutch Bag, would look great with steel or a darker silver, or any jewel colour like ruby or jade, don’t forget to team it with silver heels too.

If you are wearing black heels with your evening dress, then black accessories are the way to go.

Pepperberry have two stylish clutches, the Black Clutch Bag in faux snakeskin is the simpler of the two, but would look great with a trouser suit or jumpsuit and a tux. Or you can go for the decorative clutch, the Sequin Envelope Clutch Bag is gorgeous clutch with a real vintage look, it is covered in black sequins, with gorgeous diamante clasp in the shape of a leaf. If you are looking for a statement clutch, then this would be perfect.

The coming party season means metallics are everywhere on the high street. We know there is lots of gold and silver out there, but pewter can also been seen in the shops and is harder to match up with accessories. However Pepperberry have the answer, the Pewter Clutch Bag, which is stylish and simple will be the perfect accompaniment to a pewter evening top or dress.

RED HOT AND SMOULDERING

Yet another glittering awards ceremony took place recently in Los Angeles, the 63rd Annual Primetime Emmy Awards. An evening that recognises and honours the television industry. There were a few predictable winners, namely hit US shows. Modern Family and Mad Men, but there was also some success for British shows and actors. The extremely popular and fast growing ITV drama Downton Abbey was a big winner as was its leading actress Dame Maggie Smith. Oscar winner Kate Winslet was honoured for her role as Mildred Pierce.

The A-List ladies were out in force and it really was a close call when it came to who really ‘wowed’ on the red carpet, but Christina Hendricks seems to exude glamour like nobody else, so hurrah! Another triumph for us big boobed girls. Her dress was by Johanna Johannsson and was a jewel encrusted sliver fitted dress with a fluted bottom, a deep-V which enhanced her wonderful cleavage and a sexy split. If she reminded us of anyone, well it was difficult to miss how much she resembled Marilyn Monroe.

The colour red was very evident at The Emmys in the fashion stakes, with actresses Lea Michele, Kate Winslet, Nina Dobrev, Adrianne Palicki and TV hosts Giuliana Rancic and Nancy O’Dell all plumping for it. None of them appeared to be ‘red faced’ that the others had turned up in the same colour, which tells us how on trend ‘the red dress’ is going to be this autumn/winter. Prepare to see the red dress popping up in stores near you and don’t be surprised if the office party at Christmas, is a blaze of red dresses. Luckily enough, Pepperberry are bringing out a red maxi dress, that will be available to buy from the 17th October. It is absolutely stunning and is very similar to the style of Christina Hendricks Emmy’s dress, but obviously in bold red. Keep your eyes peeled as it’s coming very soon and for anyone who can’t wait and wants a preview, the dress can be found on Pepperberry’s Facebook page.

SWITCH ON THE GLAMOUR

Pepperberry's Platinum Shift Dress

Pepperberry's Platinum Shift Dress

So you’ve gone and done it. That glamorous event is fast approaching and you have left the frock buying right to the last minute. You promised yourself you would be extra organised and sort an outfit out, but life got in the way and the special night out that you have been looking forward to is this coming weekend. Whoops!

You may be going to a wedding reception, or have tickets to the theatre, or you may be meeting the girls for cocktails and canapés followed by a meal at a top restaurant. Whether it’s a very special birthday, or a friend’s wedding, it will be glamorous and swanky and everyone will be dressed in their finery.

Bravissimo are here to hold your hand and point you in the right direction, look no further than Pepperberry, Bravissimo’s own clothing range. If you have worn your old faithful Pepperberry dress at previous weddings and birthdays, we have some stunning new dresses in this week, that are bang on trend and will be perfect for August and September, but will also be great for Christmas parties later in the year.

The Platinum Shift Dress, is an absolutely sensational dress and is following the bodycon trend that originated from the designer Herve Leger, who has been designing these dresses since the eighties. Later the trend was reinvented by Victoria Beckham in her first collection. This dress by Pepperberry is very flattering and will hug your curves, it is structured, which is always a better option for bigger boobs. The dress is fully lined in contrasting purple and it is available in platinum satin. It has capped sleeves and an aubergine skinny belt that is detachable. For a dramatic look you could accessorise it with purple heels, clutch bag and wrap.

The Rose Print Prom Dress, is a cutie of a dress, it takes its inspiration from the 1950s. The bodice of the dress is in jewel-like purple and the skirt is a lovely rose print with a net underskirt for that great fifties look. The waist is defined by a large purple bow, which is reversible and there are hidden tabs under the straps to keep your bra in place too. You could accessorise with black satin heels, a short satin tuxedo bolero, and a teal clutch.

There are plenty more utterly gorgeous, sexy and chic dresses in our NEW IN section online or available in our stores. So whatever your posh event this bank holiday weekend, don’t miss out, and switch on the glamour with Pepperberry.

Jersey Chiffon Trim Top

Jersey Chiffon Trim Top

Oh the trials and tribulations of us girls with big boobs. We have all been there, when out shopping for clothes. What should be an enjoyable experience, can turn into a steam coming out of ears, fighting with tops, struggling with buttons & zips nightmare. You know the scenario, you go home exhausted, empty handed and frustrated. Estimations suggest that 4000 British women every year may turn to extreme measures like breast reduction, because they are so unhappy with their boobs, but we know here at Bravissimo, step one is finding the correct fitting bra. This can solve the physical problems like back pain associated with big boobs and the right bra will also make clothes look a whole lot better on. Step two is finding those clothes that flatter and hug those curves, that aren’t tarty or shapeless, that will immediately help increase confidence.

So when you go on your next shopping trip, make a visit to Bravissimo a top priority, it will cut out a lot of unnecessary leg work. For those of you that don’t know, Pepperberry is a range of clothes designed especially for us, taking into consideration all of the common problems that us ladies encounter when buying clothes. You will be able to say goodbye to stretched fabric, buttons straining and gaping, tops riding up and ending up too short in the body. Our clothes are designed in standard sizes, but the clever bit is, you can buy them in Curvy, Really Curvy and Super Curvy, so there is a size to fit everyone. As we know all too well, that even if you have the same bra size as your best friend, your boobs are different shapes, so a Really Curvy may fit you and your friend may be a Super Curvy.

For a preview of what we have to offer in our autumn range from Pepperberry, have a look at some gorgeous new tops we have selected for you.

The Floral Twist Front Blouse is a pretty, casual top, it has a deep V neckline that will divide your boobs beautifully, and a V- neck will also give the impression of lengthening your torso. This top has a twisted detail at the front, which is very flattering and the print is a cute ditsy floral.
The Jersey Chiffon Trim Top, is not too low-cut but still incredibly sexy, (think less is more with this top) It has a slight sheen which makes it a perfect going out top, it is made of jersey and has a gorgeous ruching detail and chiffon trim around the neckline, and it is available in black.
The Ruched Jersey Top is pretty similar to the top above, but a more daywear option, it is available in grey marl, which is great for this autumn/winter, it is perfect for you sporty girls, but is still on trend. It has long sleeves and a panel of ruching at the front and is very roomy and super comfortable for your boobs.

ABSOLUTE PANTS

The Poppy Bra and Brief

The Poppy Bra and Brief

Knickers have certainly changed from thirty years ago. They now come in all shapes, styles and colours. And they can do wondrous things, like make your tummy flatter, your thighs thinner or just look so utterly gorgeous, that they should be worn on the outside of your clothes instead.

A major UK retailer recently reported rocketing sales of their Brazilian knickers. Now I bet, like us at Bravissimo you are scratching your head wondering ‘what exactly do a pair of Brazilian knickers look like?’ If it’s anything like the Brazilian you would receive at the beauty salon, well there won’t be much to them. But we can reliably inform you, that they are a higher cut short, offering no VPL (visible panty line). In our opinion Bravissimo have been offering this very style for quite a while now and there is no denying, that if you do not get on with a thong, this is a fantastic, comfortable alternative that will not show under your clothes, creating that dreaded VPL.

As bras so often take centre stage here at Bravissimo, we thought we would give you a quick lowdown on some of our great knickers that look fabulous, but also work wonders in making the best of your bottom. The Poppy Brief, is cut higher but is wider at the sides than your average brief. It features a lovely poppy print panel on the front, with the contrast of the gorgeous black lace sides, which makes these briefs a very sexy buy.

The Lula Mai brief by Masquerade, is cut lower at the sides, but you will have no VPL with these. They are available in antique ivory, and are a contrast of embroidery and luxurious satin. They have that antique look to them, but are sexy and sophisticated with it; you could also wear these with an ivory bra, as a mix and match option.

The Dotty Spot Shorts by Bravissimo are as cute as anything, Fifties inspired, these shorts have a panel at the front in the red dotty print, with a contrast of aqua sides. They are decorated with three gorgeous bows and a pocket on the back, just to increase the cute factor a little bit more; they are made in a super soft and comfortable fabric too.

The Tango Brief by Panache (which are exclusive to Bravissimo) are a great shape, they are again cut wider at the sides than the average brief and create a wonderful smooth silhouette with no VPL. If you want to bring some colour into your underwear drawer, these briefs will do the trick; they are available in spearmint, deep coral and petrol and plenty more vibrant shades.
