B cup Boudoir

 Welcome to my boudoir. This is the scariest blog post I have ever written in my eight year blogging career. This is a blog post I never thought I would be brave enough to share but here I am sharing it with the world right now. Why is it so scary? Well, further down the page you will see me in nothing but lingerie! Yes here I am, a fat woman, laying myself bare in my underwear for the world to see. Obviously I'm not the first fatshion blogger to be brave enough to share this much skin, I think that honour would have to go to Gabi Fresh and her fatkini and the many others who she inspired around the world to share their lumps and bumps too. But first here I am before taking my clothes off. As soon as I saw this striped top in City Chic I knew I wanted to Eddie Sedgwick it up and wear it just with some black opaque tights for a little blog photoshoot - just like in this photo of Eddie herself I added to my pinterest board. I think my new bob hairstyle works really well with 1960s mod looks.

Stripe Bardot Top $49.95 AUD
120 Denier Opaque Tights $14.95 AUD

I never thought I would be brave enough to post photos of myself in lingerie but here I am doing it. The reason I am doing it is because City Chic have finally released a B cup bra!!! I have been waiting and waiting for this moment. The smaller cups can be found in the contour bra range and start at 18B, with an 18C too. Then there is a 20B and 20C and next a 22B and 22C. Of course the larger cups are still represented but now us smaller chested girls have some pretty bras that fit too! I am over the moon with this news. I've always found it difficult to find bras that fit my tiny cup size and my size 18 band size. Impossible would be the best word to describe finding one that fit.

Smooth & Chic Control Brief in Black $49.95 AUD
Smooth & Chic Multiway Contour Bra $59.95 AUD

I love this convertible bra - make it strapless for those awkward tops that the bra strap is always visible for or wear it with the straps for everyday wear. Basically it is my dream bra!

Smooth & Chic Multiway Contour Bra $59.95 AUD

Well here I am in just City Chic's lingerie, a moment I never thought would happen. Whilst this photo doesn't really show it I think plunge style bra's look better with my smaller bust as they show more cleavage when usually I don't really have any. Thus I love how sexy this bra makes me feel. Plus I'm sure you all know how much I love a good fuchsia pink.

Emma Plunge Contour Bra $59.95 AUD
Emma Shorty $24.95 AUD

I love how elegant and stylish this set is. The pretty pastel pink floral print mixed with the contrasting soft mesh looks so beautiful together. I also love how the knickers have a mesh see through back - very very sexy! The front of the knickers also have the same contrast mesh as a bow which looks so very pretty which I love. The bra gives perfect shape and lift to my B cup chest, something which is often hard to find in a bra in my size.

Isabella Contour Bra $59.95 AUD
Isabella Shorty $24.95 AUD

Well there you have it! It wasn't so bad and scary after all, although there is always the comments - so please play nice! Are you like me, always struggling to find a plus size bra in a small cup size? Have you tried out City Chic's new B and C cup bras yet? Let me know in the comments below.

Get the Look: Lady Stark

Get The Look: Lady Stark 

I can’t get enough of City Chic’s Lady Stark look, and I’m here to help you match your makeup to the clothes.

Pink lips are an absolute must. You’ve probably got at least one pink lipstick in your collection, but if you don’t I would recommend starting with something simple like the bellaboxPout Pencil in Pinky Promise. This is so easy to apply, thanks to the wind up crayon style packaging. It has a beautiful pink tone and contains Vitamin E and Beeswax to moisturise even the driest lips. Even if you think you can’t wear pink, give it a go – you might surprise yourself!

We talk a lot about eyes, but what about your brows? A well-defined eyebrow can change your whole face shape. The trend these days is for a thicker, filled in brow. If you don’t naturally have full brows or you’ve over plucked in the past it’s actually incredibly easy to fill them in with the AnastasiaBeverly Hills Tinted Brow Gel.  This cult Hollywood product looks like a mascara, but don’t worry it’s just lightly tinted! You simply brush it along your brows to give them some natural colour and help fill in any gaps. If you’re after really defined eyes, the AnastasiaBeverly Hills Brow Wiz might be for you. It has a pencil and a small brush for defined but well blended brows. Whatever your choice of tool, it’s absolutely time to start making a statement with your eyebrows.

We need a dark smokey eye to really make this look work. This means the darkest black eyeshadow you can find. Use a brush to really blend this in across your eyelid, and add a dark pencil liner to finish your look. If you want a versatile eye product, the OCC Cosmetic Colour Pencil can be used as both a liner and an eyeshadow. One of my favourite pencil liners is the Eye Of Horus Charcoal Obsidian Goddess Pencil. It’s really dark and creamy and give you the perfect evening eye.


We want to play up our cheeks with a beautiful rosy blush. Don’t be scared of blush. To apply, I smile and find the apples of my cheeks and then lightly brush it across my face with a circular movement. Remember to blend blend blend or you’ll end up with 80s stripes or little pink circles. Try the MeMeMe Blush Box for a warm and healthy glow.

We are going pink! If you’re usually a red or neutral gal, this might be a change for you. But I have a love affair with Barbie pink nails. There’s something really fun about a girly nail. Try ButterLondon’s Cake-Hole  for a perfect cupcake pink.
