The Christmas season is upon us and that can only mean one thing – parties! From kids’ parties, to the “work do”, to nights out with friends, to good old fashioned family get-togethers – Christmas time is very much party season!
And if it’s party season……… you need a new party frock!
Big Boobs = Big Challenges!
But we all know that pregnancy and breastfeeding often “enhances” your breasts, and finding a dress to accommodate your new figure can be a little tricky!
I’ve always been a big boobed curvy girl and, while it can be a favourable asset (!), it can also be a real pain to live with! No amount of squishing and breathing in can squeeze my boobs into an off-the-hanger dress. I either have to buy a dress that is two sizes too big for me or go home dress-less.
My Fairy Godmother!
But fear not, ladies! You SHALL go to the ball!
Bravissimo, the bra shop who specialise in D cups and above, have developed their own clothing range specifically for us curvy ladies! If there’s anyone who’s going to know about taking care of our boobs, it’s Bravissimo! There are even three different levels of curve:
- Really Curvy
- Super Curvy
I’ve been shopping at Bravissimo for years now and this is the absolute honest truth: The first time I went to a Bravissimo store, I cried! I had finally found clothes that made me look good. The fabric slipped beautifully over my upper half and pulled in so elegantly at my waist. I wasn’t the frumpy mummy I was fearing I had become.

Textured Lace Straight Dress
And this is my fabulous new Bravissimo Party Dress!
It’s really easy to wear because it’s quite a thick material (perfect for those cold, wintry nights!) The texture of the lace overlay means that it’s not too sheer so it glosses nicely over those extra lumps you might not want highlighting!
I love that this dress can be glammed-up for parties, but also smartened up for work wear. On my night out, I teamed it with Bravissimo’s Hanging Square Necklace which really brought the outfit to life!
I really love my dress and it’s a great addition to my ever-growing Bravissimo wardrobe!
What about you? Do you struggle to find clothing that fits properly? Have you come across Bravissimo clothing before? What is your favourite party dress like?
