A little bit about colour

Since I’m an artist and a designer, colours are a huge part of my life. This doesn’t just concern my creations, but also translates into what I like to wear and what colours I feel comfortable in. Colour temperature One colour does not truly exist without another. Even when the other one is just it’s darker or lighter shade, it really stands out when it has company. Also, some colours are generally considered cool and the other warm, but you can really only tell which one is warmer or cooler relatively by comparison. That’s why I’m going to write about …

Biubiu tops review – “Haarlem” and “Oviedo”

Biubiu is a Polish company that produces bust-friendly tops and dresses, made for different boob sizes within one waist size. The sizes are described as your regular European sizing (from 36 to 48) plus letters B, BB or BBB that stand for bust size. Biubiu plain jersey tops are my all time favourites. They go with everything, are made of good quality fabric, are comfortable to wear and are boob-friendly. Biubiu releases several styles every season and I try to get a hold of a few pieces every time, which is somewhat tricky – my size sells very quickly. I got …

Jackpot!

Alas, quantity will never do for quality. Wearing jackets is …

Panache Jasmine Bra Review

I’ve got a little bit of a love/hate relationship with Panache bras, and I’ve known and wore them for at least five years. Last time I bought Panache bra was two years ago, I believe. I was hoping they would improve the construction to increase the comfort of wearing since then, but unfortunately Jasmine has the same issues as Tango II and other older Panache styles. Various colour versions of this bra are available on Figleaves and Bravissimo. I tried this bra on before, so I knew that 36HH size would be a perfect fit.  Support & Uplift– 4.5/5 Decent support, minimal …

Longline tops. Truly yours.

Ever since that evil of a woman Ula recommended me Yours Clothing, my wardrobe has sufferred from space deprivation. This huge plus size fashion retailer deserves attention for many reasons, but mainly for its wide selection of tunics and longline tops, probably the biggest ever known to the curvy part of mankind. I tend to avoid their dresses and blouses/shirts, because they are usually made for taller ladies, but tops and tunics are definitely worth checking out! My most recent wardrobe additions (AKA Wonder Hangers Nemesis): White flag print t-shirt with dipped back – size 20 I bought this top mostly because …
