It’s that time of year again!

You know what that means… time for new bras!

It would seem that I’ve found my new favourite brand… and it’s not cheap, not that that’s much of a surprise, but they’re oh so pretty!

The Cat’s Pyjamas has done some extensive renovations that I wasn’t aware of and now the place is absolutely stunning with probably an obscenely huge collection of bras from all over Europe. I am beyond thilled.

Of course, the minor problem for me is that with the exception of my everyday bras (read: sports bras with underwires that actually keep you IN), pretty bras are really hard to come by in my size that are a proper fit. It’s not that I’m particularly huge, though I am unfortunately still well-enough endowed, but over the last couple of years my constant inactivity has resulted in a somewhat puffier stature which makes looking good in a pretty bra, less than ideal. Depending on the style and brand, I now fall somewhere between a C & D cup.

I will still say this — getting the proper size, fit and style is crucial.

So what’d I get this time? The Melody from Empreinte:

I love that the straps are slightly wider at the shoulder, as well as the cups being lined with satin piping. The cups are really pretty and offers full coverage even though it’s lace, which would imply too much peekaboo action.

I did get another style which is a full coverage black and white floral, but not lace. I would almost say it’s like “spandexy”, know what I mean? I can’t seem to find a picture of it, otherwise I would post it here… it could be a spring/summer release and therefore not on Empreinte’s website.

So that’s been the start to the August long weekend… spending lots of monays on pretty stuff.

  1. LOL…I’m kinda partial to peek-a-boo action myself :-D
    /naturally, of course, pics of you in whatever gear you choose to go with would be crucial for me to give a thumbs up ;-)

      Yanno… at one point in my life, I would have considered myself decent looking enough, in my own mind, and would possibly consider posting a picture of myself in just a bra… Under a friends-only cut, mind you, but still.
      Unfortunately, SALLY has done some pretty hardcore damage to my self-image and the likelihood of me ever posting, shall we say, ‘risque’ pictures of myself just aren’t gonna happen anymore :/
      Thanks for the self-esteem boost, though! :D
