When I was a kid, September meant that you broke out the heavy coats and sweaters that you’d stored all winter. Now that I live in the South where there isn’t a real cold season and bundling up means throwing on a cardigan, I’m seeing my wardrobe as one year round thing rather than as seasons. Luckily, this means I get to indulge my love for delicate girly things all year round!
Traditionally, fuller busted woman have more trouble wearing more frilly and feminine pieces. Today, I’ve put together a list of eight pieces that will work beautifully for all curvy women.
1. Bernini Dress by Shabby Apple
I saw To Rome With Love a few months ago, and this dress reminds me of the things that the stylish Italian women wore in that movie. I like my dresses to be both beautiful and practical, so this dress fits the bill perfectly. It runs large at the bust to accommodate fuller busted women, is made from a comfy stretch fabric, and can be machine washed.
2. Avery Shoes by Miz Mooz
I first found out about Miz Mooz shoes on Ash’s blog and have been dying to try some ever since. I’m normally stuck in flats due to back and neck issues, but these may be my answer when I want to wear heels. They’re created to be extra comfortable and all of their offerings are seriously cute.
3. Salon Chaton Little Lemon Cake Knicker
They’re handmade panties inspired by petit fours. What more do you need to know to fall in love with these?
4. HM Finezja Bra by Ewa Michalak
I’m heartbroken that this style of bra isn’t made in larger cup sizes. Hopefully one day Ewa will figure out how to expand the size range in this shape. Luckily, Cece has a great review here if you want more details about sizing. I love the delicate lace and the pale pink color.
5. Salon Chaton Red Velvet Torta Knicker
I’m not a fan of actual red velvet cake, but these panties are gorgeous. Again, they’re part of the Salon Chaton Petit Four range and are just perfectly delicate.
6. Luscious Dress in Mint with Mira the Mermaid by Pinup Couture
I’m so glad that vintage colors are coming back into style. I’m seeing them everywhere — I even saw a beautiful mint green vintage car driving through my neighborhood last week! This dress is made of a thick t-shirt material, so you can dress it up or wear it when you’d otherwise throw on a pair of jeans. The mermaid embroidery is slightly cheeky without channeling that whole sailor tattoo thing.
7. Primrose Bra by Bravissimo
This cheerful bra is just too pretty to resist. Thrillingly, it also is available up to a K cup! It’s the lingerie version of lemon sorbet.
8. Garden Dream Bow Flats by Ruche
As I said earlier, I mostly wear flats. It’s surprisingly hard to find cute flats these days! Luckily, these shoes by Ruche are affordable and would go with everything.
