Panache very kindly sent me one of their lingerie sets recently - in the new Cleo style which I just love. It's a gorgeous slightly pin-up style and comes in some bright patterns (this is the Darcy Heart version), which always makes me feel good, and I think it's so well designed to support a larger bust.
I have always been larger-than-average in the boob department, and I remember the massive embarassment which came of being the first girl in the class who had to wear a bra rather than a crop top. It was honestly mortifying. In those days there were very few options for me, and it always felt like the only bras available in my size were the ones designed for grannies! All I wanted was something pretty.
It definitely dented my confidence when I was a teenager, even though the only time anyone ever saw my bra was in the PE changing rooms.
I am so pleased the options have dramatically increased since then though, and now I can almost always find pretty underwear when I go shopping. This may or may not have contributed to the fact that I own rather a lot of it - I am a bit of a magpie when it comes to nice pants! Panache's website is definitely being bookmarked for later...
