Hello lovelies!

So in today’s post we are talking all things BOOB. 

Last month at The City Girls Event in Sheffield, I was very fortunate to meet the lovely Zehra from Panache Lingerie. Panache offer a range of GORGEOUS lingerie sets, particularly in the larger cup sizes, typically D+ with some styles offering a K cup. (They have a few styles to choose from in B+ cup also) 

Zehra was kindly offering a fitting service, which at first I felt really quite nervous about, BUT it had been one of those things that had been on my to do list for a VERY long time. 

C’mon ladies, let’s be honest…. do you ACTUALLY know your boob size? (I sure didn’t…)

Zehra kindly sent me this beautiful ‘Kali Balconnet Set in Cobalt*’ in my ACTUAL Size!! 

When I told a friend I was being sent a lingerie set, they were like oh gosh are you going to wear it and take photos?! and I was like ohh noooo! (Great if you feel confident enough to, but I sure as hell don’t!) By the way… taking photos of bras, is REALLY CHALLENGING. Bravo to whoever does this for a living.

Anyway, back to the post. The importance of getting measured, and the little tale I have to tell. Recently I had been complaining about my bra constantly digging into me and really being quite painful. This made me think that I was wearing the wrong size, and I assumed that I needed to go up a band size. Wrong. 

On the day of The City Girls I was wearing a 36B, purely because it just felt nice, it felt comfortable, it stopped me complaining from the ache I was feeling, yet it felt supportive, it was my new favourite bra. Psychologically I felt that it was my correct size, even that one was starting to feel ‘too tight’ Zehra probably was really quite shocked, she pulled at my bra band to show how loose it was, and really how unsupportive it was. It turns out I was a 32… She said that if I continued to wear that bra, my boobs will sag alot quicker. NO girl wants to hear that. I totally didn’t know that wearing the wrong bra size could do this… please tell me this isn’t common knowledge and I am not alone?! Moral of the story, go get measured! 

Us girls have enough things to add to our body confidence list, no need to add that into the mix… BUT OH it is amazing how much confidence a beautiful piece of lingerie can give you!

“Crafted for fit. Style for fun” So true, this bra is super super comfortable, fits in all the right places, with comfortable wide, supportive straps. The band size is where the most support comes from, followed by the straps, and then the cups. It is really important you are measured to ensure a comfortable fit!

I explained to Zehra that I always found the front bit of bras to dig in really tightly. I find that the area near my ribs sticks out really quite a lot. She said to look out for bras that curve up more in the central region, rather than a straighter cut. It is really hard to explain without properly showing you, but the bra I chose is a a really good example of what kind of cut you should look for if you are suffering similar issues!

Panache have a gorgeous booklet with their entire collection in. They also do swimwear and sportswear, plenty to choose from! 

Hope you enjoyed this post lovelies! I hope I have inspired you to get your boobs measured! If not, Panache have some really good measuring advice on their website. They also have such a beautiful Spring / Summer collection at the moment, I plan on splurging on payday, since I now only have one bra that fits me perfectly, I have my eye on the gorgeous fern set! Do you have any Panache Lingerie?

Thank you so much to Zehra, and Panache Lingerie for sending me this gorgeous set and for measuring me!

Lots of love,

Kayleigh xoxo

    Getting properly measured is SO IMPORTANT!!!! I was lucky enough to have training at my first job, but even knowing how to measure yourself can present problems sometimes, so it's best to get someone to do it for you. It's really sad how many people are wearing the wrong size because it can lead to so many problems :(( But yay you got it sorted!! This set looks so so so cute, and this brand looks like it has a really great range. 😀

    This set is gorgeous! I swear it feels like I'm a different size in every shop I go in haha, think it's time for me to get measured. I have the same problem as you do with sticking out so I'll have to remember to look for bras that curve up 🙂 xx

    Lovely set, I should really get measured – had no idea wearing the wrong bra size could do that!

    This bra colour is stunning. I can't get over the bra, I had to reread your post because I was side tracked with how stunning this bra is.. I need to get measured properly (god knows what I am..) and buy some off Panache Lingerie!
