Back to school essentials

Porcelain Plunge by Panache Bra available in sizes 28 DD – G cup; 30-38 D-G cup

Not all parents think of a bra for their teenager daughters when pulling together the shopping list for Back to School. Normally high up the list is the blazer and school skirt or trousers.

A good fitting bra can make all that difference to the look of the uniform and the confidence of the young girl. If a girl is particularly booby why not invest in a Pepperberry shirt – shaped enough so the buttons don’t pull but in a standard high street size,  adjusted depending on how much boob room  is needed. There are a couple of white shirts currently in the pepperberry sale

A moulded seamfree T-Shirt bra is a great option for underneath a school shirt. For example Bravissimo girls rave about the comfort of the Porcelain bra by Panache as it’s seamless it gives great shape under plain shirts, tops and dresses. A moulded cup provides some modesty to ensure there’s no embarrassments.

Another consideration for school is a sports bra. Whilst this might seem like an expensive option for the uniform if high impact sports are involved it’s essential that a good fitting sports bra is worn.

There are no muscles in your boobs, and without a good sports bra they will bounce during exercise. This is not only uncomfortable, but can also lead to your boobs having less uplift in the long run.  As the bounce factor is considerably higher for women with bigger boobs, we need extra support when we exercise, for the comfort and protection of our assets!

The Panache underwired sports bra
has been rated as 4.5 out of 5 for comfort, support and shape.

Bra available in sizes 28 DD-GG cup; 30-40D – H cup


We feel more than justified in writing this next blog piece, because…drum roll… the sun is out! And we wouldn’t dare complain about how hot it is, would we?

With The Jubilee behind us and the Olympics almost here, we are still in celebratory mode and country seems to be honoring everything that’s great about Britain. But not just current events or anniversaries, we are also getting nostalgic for a Britain from years gone by. Bunting sales have never been higher, we are a nation obsessed with cup cakes and home baking, and vintage clothes are hugely sort after, as is vintage crockery. Even plastic toys aren’t good enough anymore, toys based on old wooden designs are must have items and ‘staycationing’ is the new way to holiday. Every evening there are TV programmes about Britain, and its heritage & traditions filling the schedules.

So with that in mind, we would like to bring you some British vintage inspired pieces from our Pepperberry collection. Take a look at Shop By Trend, and then Time For Tea, you’ll find ditsy prints, polka dots and a dash of red white and blue.

Two gorgeous cardis that just sum up that vintage look are the Pointelle Cardigan in navy and the Printed Cardigan in flower print.

The Frill Font Dress

The Frill Font Dress

The Pointelle Cardigan is a versatile and light cover-up for the summer, and navy is a classic colour, that will look great with a white fitted Tee, but also look fabulous over a coloured summer dress. This cardi, is really flattering, due to the large ribbed waist area, it will hug your curves in all the right places.

The Printed Cardigan is a pretty cardigan that will really liven up plain neutrals. We have had some great reviews about this item, because of the flattering fit, great quality, pretty buttons and lovely floral print. Try it with Pepperberry’s stylish Linen Skirt in Sand, or for a cute summer look, wear with Shimmer Shorts in Gold.

The Frill Front Dress, in Green, is a really pretty vintage style tea dress, it is made from a gorgeous silk cotton blend fabric. It has cute puff sleeves, a ruffle as a centre detail, and a matching waist tie. It is extra flattering over the tummy area and the hips, perfect for a shaped figure. The Frill Front Dress would be a great summer buy, feminine, comfortable and smart, it could be worn for a variety of events and occasions. Team it with some indigo coloured wedges and a denim jacket for a dressed down vintage look, or accessorise it with the Sparkle Wrist Strap Clutch Bag and silver sling back kitten heels, a floral fascinator and a cropped fitted jacket and you have the perfect outfit for a summer wedding.

enjoy a jubilant jubilee!

Have you seen them? They are everywhere you look, draped from windows, hung on fences and tied to trees, of course we are talking about union jack flags. All of a sudden the whole of Britain has been covered in a huge blanket of red, white and blue. It seems like every town, village and street is holding a Jubilee celebration. So if you are not a royalist, it might be wise to hide under the duvet all the extended weekend, because there will be no getting away from Her Majesty and The Diamond Jubilee.

This weekend the Queen is celebrating sixty years on the throne. So how will she be spending her weekend? On Saturday she will attend the Epsom Derby, on Sunday she will participate in The Thames Diamond Jubilee Pageant. This will be a spectacular event, with one thousand boats sailing down the Thames. Boats from across the UK, the Commonwealth and around the world will be taking part. On Monday she will be watching stars like Annie Lennox, Sir Paul McCartney and JLS perform in a BBC Concert at Buckingham Palace and on Tuesday there will be a Service of Thanksgiving at St Paul’s Cathedral, followed by a procession…Phew, she will definitely need to put her feet up with a cuppa after all that!

If you have nothing planned for the Jubilee weekend, there is still time to organise a get together. If you like the idea of getting to know your neighbours, you could hold a Big Jubilee Lunch. The Big Lunch is part of the main programme of events over the Jubilee weekend. It is simply about picking a venue (your street or local park) and getting together with your neighbours and friends and eating lunch, in order to commemorate the milestone. It can be as easy as a picnic and asking everyone to bring a dish. If you want more information on The Jubliee Big Lunch take a look here.

The Circle Print Dress

The Circle Print Dress

However you are celebrating, Pepperberry can help you to look the part. You couldn’t get more patriotic than the Circle Print Dress, it looks like it was made for this weekend. The circle and stripe print makes a bold statement, so you will stand out in the crowd. This dress is cut under the bust, has mock button detailing, low side pockets, and a waist tie at the back.

For something very chic and spot on for the Jubilee, the Spot Shift Dress is perfect, this dress is based on the best selling fitted shape that our Pepperberry customers love. It is available in blue spot, in this gorgeous jacquard fabric. Accessorise with nude heels and a red cuff bangle.

If you are attending a more relaxed party, Pepperberry have two tops that will be perfect for the weekend, the Gather Front Top in Colbalt is an easy-to-wear jersey top, with a cap sleeve and flattering ruching down the front. This top would look fabulous with wide palazzo style trousers. The Spot Print Top, in red, white & blue, is made from crinkle chiffon, it is cut under the bust, and is a wrap over style top which is really flattering for bigger boobs, this top would look great with skinny jeans and flats. It is available in multi.

Happy Diamond Jubilee everyone.
