Curvy Kate

I write about my outfit inspirations all the time. It's nice to switch things up and talk about what we wear underneath our clothes. On my YouTube channel and Instagram I get many questions asking me about bras and lingerie. So I thought it would be perfect to join forces with Curvy Kate!

Being a busty woman, it's difficult to find cute lingerie. Bras in stores seem to only be in white, black, and beige. These are colors that we do need but, I also want bright colors. lace. and sexy lingerie. Curvy Kate makes D to K cup lingerie and let me tell you, it's sexy and cute! Curvy Kate is a UK store and does not ship to all counties. Click here to see the list.

It has come to my attention that many women wear the wrong bra size and that was including me. Chantelle from Curvy Kate is literately the "Bra Whisperer". I wore for many years a 38DDD until Chantelle pointed out I was wearing the wrong size. She recommended I wore a 34HH and sent over a few sets for me to try on. I was wonderfully surprised when the bras fit! I couldn't believe it. Chantelle was right. She also offers her 'Bra Whisperer' virtual fitting service via email so if any of you would like to contact her you can at Chantelle@curvykate.com. She would love to help you find your correct size.

I adored each one of these sets. First, I want to say that each one fits well, gives me great support exactly what my figure needs. I also noticed a better posture and more confidence.

I felt extra sexy in this peek-a-boo mesh balcony bra. I love the corset like design and satin under layer.  I usually avoid low cut tops because I need to wear a bra. I love to wear this bra under a low cut top because this bra almost looks like a bralette. It adds an extra sexy layer under your clothes. This bra comes with a Scantilly rose gold ā€˜Sā€™ charm but I removed mine so I can wear it like a bralette.

This pink bra brought out my playful side in this look. I instantly feel in love with the color and the pattern. The bra has great support and is comfortable. It has a classic silhouette but with a little stretch on top to keep the girls in place.

How many of you have trouble finding a strapless bra that actually fits and holds up the girls? It's like trying to find the needle in a haystack. It's impossible. Until Curvy Kate I never owned a strapless bra before- I just couldn't find one that fit. This one fits just right. It doesn't give me the biggest support- but I think it's because my breast do weigh quite a bit. This bra has an adhesive around it; it helps keep the bra up and in place. Overall it's the only strapless bra that fits me and I feel comfortable wearing for a long period of time. The matching panties were just to die for. You can't really see it in these pictures but they look like little tuxedo panties and compliment the bra. I just love them.

I'm lusting over this red set. It's sexy and I love this color. I find that red lingerie is much sexier then black. The color just screams "look at me". I love the lace detail and it gives me fantastic support. My breasts feel like I'm not wearing a bra at all- it almost feels like a second skin.

Good To Be Bad

I don't know what it is but, I feel like a total bad-ass in this outfit. Maybe it's the distressed jeans, the army style shirt or these amazing over-the-knee boots. All I know is that I'm ready to kick butt.. haha.

Not only am I ready to kick some butt but also ready for fall with this complete outfit from Torrid. This olive shirt is definitely a color for fall, the patches are also a big trend for fall, and of course the boots. Let me tell you- I'm obsessed with these boots! First of all they are wide calf. Hallelujah! As a curvy girl it's can be difficult to find cute wide calf boots. Torrid's shoe collection is your answer. I adore the braided detail on the side of these boots and ladies you know I love an over the knee boot. 

I love a good pair of jeans- well who doesn't. One of my biggest problems when looking for jeans is that I have short legs. It can be difficult to find the perfect length. Torrid has you covered with a great variety of tall, short, and regular denim.

plaid, fall, bomber jacket

Edgy Plaid

Is it too soon to wear plaid? Let's face it plaid will be back every fall season. You'll see it on jackets, skirts, scarves, and so much more.  It's one my favorite patterns for fall. Instead of wearing it on a shirt that's tied around my waist, I went with a jogger.

Style Tip: If your jacket is a bit casual like a denim or utility jacket dress it up with a pair of heels.

I love mixing plaid with edgy pieces. This not so basic tee with a strappy detail from Forever 21 and this bomber jacket do the trick. Bomber jackets are  casual so a pair of heels dress up this look.

Denim & Mesh

I love oversized clothes, especially jackets. While they are super comfy, they are not the most flattering. There are ways to rock an oversized jacket without looking like a big balloon. It's all about balancing proportions.  

Style Tip: The bigger the top/jacket the more fitted the rest of your outfit should be. Pair your oversized jacket with a fitted top and skinny jeans or leggings for a great play on proportions.

I went with a monochromatic look underneath my big jacket. Black is slimming so, I thought it would be a great match for an oversized jacket. A pair fitted joggers and a sheer mesh top did the trick- casual and edgy.  Jean jackets are super casual and to continue with these casual vibes I finished my look with comfy sneakers, my favorite hat, and sunnies.

pink, skirt, graphic tee

Pretty in Pink

Stuck in a fashion slump? A cool graphic tee or tank can solve your "I don't have nothing to wear" blues. With a little styling a graphic tee goes far beyond the classic jeans and sneaks combo.

Style Tip: Graphic tees can have a casual appeal. You usually wear them with denim. Add a little feminine touch with a flowy pink skirt. 

I have nothing against a cute or edgy tee with casual pair of jeans, but I wanted to step up my game. This high- low skirt is just what I'm talking about. The soft colors and roses on this tank from Authentic Glam compliment the pink color of this skirt. I love that putting these two items together creates a casual but feminine look.
