Every now and again an email will appear in my inbox from a lingerie company asking if i would like to feature their brand. I usually politely decline and say it's a not something I'd like to mention on my blog (you know, it's kinda personal) but when a very friendly email popped in my inbox at the start of last month from Boux Avenue i became very interested. Being quite large chested (i have been since my early teens), i find it incredibly difficult to find bras that fit and are comfortable. I've gone through my fair share of expensive/cheap ill fitted bras that have left marks, bruises and back pain. Despite going to numerous places to get measured I've just never been able to find the perfect~ bra. I know I'm not alone in this, which is the very reason i decided to go ahead and do this post.
I was very kindly gifted two items from the website which i picked myself. I decided to go for the Sienna full support balconette bra & the Dana full support lace balconette bra as like i said before, finding bras that fit is a nightmare. The last bra i bought was from La Senza which was a 36G, it didn't fit. But i decided to get the same size anyway because i know the size is different from shop to shop and as these are ''support'' bras, i thought i wouldn't have a problem. The package arrived a couple of days later and i was blown away by the presentation. I'm an absolute sucker for a nicely packaged parcel and Boux Ave really outdid themselves. The bras came beautifully wrapped in a branded box, floral tissue paper and sealed with their own sticker. The Bras we're neatly in place in the box with scented petals to give it a really personal touch. It's the most thoughtful parcel I've ever received and something like that can really encourage your opinions on an item.
After receiving these bras i made a promise to myself to wear them everyday, even if they hurt, didn't fit or caused whatever problems because i wanted to give them a honest review. A month later I'm still wearing these bras, not for the review. But because ladies, I've found it, I've found the perfect bra! The Sienna is the one, the one I've been waiting years to find. I don't have a gap in the middle, i don't have wires digging in to me and i can wear my clothes over the top without my chest starting to fall out (you know what i mean, we've all been there!) Even though the Dana is the same size, i find it a lot tighter to the point where i can't wear it for too long because it hurts, but the support i get from it is amazing it makes it worth it. I can't believe I've found finally found it and all for £26! I honestly can't recommend Boux Avenue enough. Their service & quality is outstanding and I've even asked for a voucher from my Mum for my birthday. Thank you for Boux Ave for helping me find my perfect bra!
So now on to the exciting bit! Just to prove everything I've said about Boux Ave being fabulous, they've only gone and given me a £50 voucher for one of you to win! How lovely is that? All you have to do is comment on this post with a link to what you would spend your voucher on and I'll pick a winner on Friday!
