WRAP UP WARM

The time of year has arrived when we are wrapping up, adding layers and fashion is just as much about keeping warm and dry, as about looking good. Whether you are in your first serious job after college, a working or a stay at home mum, or whether you are a veteran of that daily commute, each and every Bravissimo girl needs a stylish winter jacket or coat that will keep the wind and the rain at bay when you are out in the elements.

Scallop Edge Coat

If you are looking to buy, there is such a vast array of winter coats and jackets in different styles and fabrics that it can get slightly confusing. Do you go for tweed, classic wool, or leather? Do you opt for a plaid, plain or a dotty print? And that’s before we get started on colour!

Hopefully Pepperberry, our very own clothing range, will have a few options that will keep our Bravissimo ladies warm and dry, but still looking smart and on trend. We also know how tricky it is finding winter coats that fit nicely over the boobs, so these coats have been designed with extra room.

One coat that is already proving to be a bit of a hit is the Scallop Edge Coat in black. This coat has the lovely scalloped detailing and buttons down the edge of one side, it creates a lovely nipped in waist and is fully lined. It is finished off with the corsage on the neck, which is removable. You also have the option of wearing the neckline unfastened, if you find the neck too high.

Boucle Coat

Another new addition to Pepperberry range is the Boucle Coat. This coat is in a textured fabric, which fits into this year’s trend for textured woven yarns. The boucle coat is very classic in shape, single breasted, so it will creates a nice streamlined look, it has a slightly puffed sleeve to add a bit of femininity. It is available in purple and looks fabulous with black, brown or grey, it will also will look amazing with plum, blueberry and tan and any other colours from the autumn palette. A perfect coat for long winter walks or for keeping you toasty warm, while you wait for your train or bus.

If you are struggling to find that perfect winter coat, make your way to Bravissimo and take a look at these two fabulous coats, or if it’s too chilly to venture out, have a look online from the comfort of your sofa.

Knit One Pearl One

Knitting is back and it doesn’t care who knows it! Sales of wool has rocketed, and knitting clubs have sprung up again all over the country. Going to a knitting group with the girls is now thought of as a good – even cool – night out. Knitting has firmly shaken off its ‘granny’ image and it looks like the love affair with home knits and all things woolly will continue to grow. If you have yet to pick up your needles, why don’t you give it a try? It is cheap and it is a great way of de-stressing and switching off after a hard day at the office or a non-stop day with the kids. The end result is something wonderfully creative, that someone special will cherish.

Wrap Front Jumper from Pepperberry

If crafty pursuits are not for you, but you can still appreciate a great bit of knitwear, then you won’t have to look too far, as knitwear is big news this season. There is definitely a time and place when only knitwear will do. If you happen to work in a chilly office, you will need to look sharp, but you still need to be warm, so some smart close fitting knitwear is a must. Or if you are attending an outside event like a firework display or a Christmas market, a big slouchy jumper or knitted dress would both be great options. For a glam night out when you don’t want to spend the evening shivering in your sparkly vest, you need a long sleeved knit, with some glitter or sparkle.

Not so long ago, there was little choice for us Bravissimo girls, the only knitwear available for us on the high street was chunky, shapeless, boxy and unflattering. This would make our boobs seem ‘matronly’ and make us look two dress sizes bigger. Our very own clothing brand, Pepperberry has changed all that. Pepperberry’s knitwear is carefully designed, won’t add extra inches and you won’t find any big or bursting buttons. It is gorgeous and on trend too.

Sequin Shoulder Jumper from Pepperberry

The Wrap Front Jumper would be great for the workplace, it is a v-neck wrap top with an empire line that highlights the narrowest area just under the bust, the tummy area is ribbed and fitted which also enhances the waist. This knit may be best worn with a cami and it is recommended that a plunge bra be worn underneath. The Wrap Front Jumper is available in black and purple.

The Sequin Shoulder Jumper is the glamorous option from Pepperberry. It is a fine knit with gorgeous sequin detailing on the shoulders. It has a v-neck which is super flattering for bigger boobs. This top will be a good choice with Christmas approaching and will look great with this season’s pencil skirt and black suede heels, or some tailored trousers.

The Boyfriend Cardigan is available in Mocha and is a lovely slouchy cardigan that is really versatile. It can be worn on warmer day with a classic white shirt underneath, or on a cold day worn with a fitted knitted jumper. Accessorise with the Vintage Lace Trim Scarf from Pepperberry and you have got a great layered look.

THE PERFECT FIT

Us girls who are blessed with big boobs are very lucky. We look curvaceous, feminine and sexy without even trying and we regularly inspire boob envy in our smaller-boobed friends (see Christina Hendricks overshadowing Sarah Jessica Parker at the New York Premiere of ‘I Don’t Know How She Does It’). However, we have had to live with the nightmare of shopping to find clothes that fit our wonderful boobs, and it ain’t been easy!

The choice has been wearing jersey tops – usually too tight – that leave nothing to the imagination and could give the impression that you are an extra from TOWIE. Or buying clothes one or two sizes too big, which fit on the boobs, but not anywhere else and this makes you look bigger than in reality.

This begs the question, how have we gone on this long with such lack of choice when it comes to buying clothes? Pepperberry have changed all that, no more going home feeling deflated, and thinking you have nothing to wear everytime you look in your wardrobe, and no more having to buy ill fitting clothes, as that’s the only choice. Pepperberry’s clothes will fit perfectly, because these clothes are designed for bigger boobs.

Smart Packing

Another Monday morning. At this time of year many of us are counting the days and hours until we are lying on a sun-drenched beach far away from the office, the heaving supermarket, or the traffic on the school run. Holiday packing is an art these days, especially as some of the budget airlines charge you by weight for your suitcase. If you don’t want the hassle of having to unpack everything at the departure gate because your bag is on the heavy side, then read on, as this is your guide to packing your Bravissimo and Pepperberry summer holiday capsule wardrobe.

Maxi dresses can be worn day or night (changing flip flops to wedges at night and adding some great gold hooped earrings and gold bangles). See the Coral Print Maxi Dress by Bravissimo, it is a very flattering empire line and sits under the bust creating a fabulous cleavage. It is a great colour and will look fantastic with a tan and it’s made of cotton, so it will keep you nice and cool. The Jersey Beach Dress by Bravissimo in fuchsia, is the perfect beach cover-up, it’s very simple, stylish and looks great. The Bandeau Beach Dress by Bravissimo comes in gorgeous aqua blue that will also look amazing with a golden glow. The bandeau style and halterneck is super flattering.

The Bright Ideas Tankini Top by Faubourg is new and exclusive from Bravissimo. It is a great alternative to the swimsuit if your bikini days are over. This tankini is in a bold black and white floral print and has that surf girl feel to it. It is underwired, with a halterneck and has matching drawstring briefs.
The Spotty Tulip Dress by Pepperberry is a really fun, sexy, frock and perfect if you fancy dressing up a bit while you’re on your hols. The dress boasts two popular trends this summer, the tulip shape and the spots. It is slightly shorter than shown online, so be prepared to show some leg! The next dress definitely deserves a mention, as it’s really popular with our Bravissimo ladies is the Tulip Print Chiffon Shirt Dress by Pepperberry.

A few of your Bravissimo favourite lingerie sets, your lightest nightdress, a panama or wide brimmed sun hat, one pair of Havianas and one pair of evening wedges or heels and your done!
