Doing You a Full Bust Favor: Evie Curve on Instagram (You’re Welcome!)

What’s on your wish list when you’re looking for big bust fashion inspiration? How about someone who:

  1. has Sofia Vergara’s measurements (but “half her stature”),
  2. has a background in fashion buying and merchandising, so she’s on top of the latest trends,
  3. actually wears the trends, and
  4. makes getting dressed look fun and do-able again?

That would be @Eviecurve in Australia.eviecurve bell sleeves

Naturally large-breasted, she’s posted photos of herself wearing Curvy Kate and Fantasie. Any guess as to what strapless she’s wearing in the pic below?

Off the Rack ~ My First Miss Candyfloss Wiggle Dress, the “Sabine-Katalin”

Recently, I tried my very first wiggle-style dress from Miss Candyfloss, so it’s time for another review. Due to the wiggle shape, this time I’m assessing the fit at both the top and bottom halves of the hourglass.

The dress is called “Sabine-Katalin,” and comes in a vibrant turquoise with mint green accents with a removable mint belt. It’s made of 63% polyester, 32% viscose, and 5% elastane, resulting in a soft and moderately thick fabric that’s (yet again) machine-washable.

This dress features MCF’s signature pleated bust (and darts too! I never noticed them before), but with a mini-peplum and a folded over collar. There are darts up the back for shaping, and a pair of seams up the front and back of the skirt, plus a small slit in the back of the skirt for ease of movement.

With my measurements of 37”-29”-41”, I took a medium. At 5’6” tall, it just covers my knees.

Off the Rack ~ Lady K Loves “Hug Me Baby” Jeans Finally Restocking!

Good news for my fellow readers who are just as curvy on the bottom half as the top half! After a long delay due to being forced to switch denim suppliers, Lady K Loves is finally restocking their amaaaazing “Hug Me Baby” jeans for figures with a high waist-to-hip ratio. I reviewed these amazing vintage-style pants back in 2015, and have yet to find any other jeans that fit or feel as good. I’ve been dying for a pair in black, and now I finally have my chance again.

However, since pre-orders via the Lady K website have apparently been problematic in the past, they’re using Kickstarter to accept pre-orders and offer other goodies like tee shirts and tote bags. You even get a £5 discount if you pre-order. So get to it! Visit Lady K’s blog to read more details, or go straight to the Kickstarter page.

And please share the news! I’ll be devastated if the Kickstarter goal isn’t met and I have to wait even longer for my jeans!

Here's me in my fabulous Lady K Loves "Hug Me Baby" jeans.

Off the Rack ~ Reviewing Grass Fields Clothing

I recently had an amazing encounter with an Hourglassy reader. She contacted me through Bratabase’s messaging system to introduce me to a brand called Grass Fields. Georgina of Fuller Figure Fuller Bust had just reviewed two pieces from this company, and the reader liked the designs so much that she ordered a jumpsuit for herself.

The suit didn’t fit the reader, but instead of returning it, she offered to send it to me if I promised to review it. She said she really admired the company’s back story of pulling themselves out of abject poverty in Cameroon through this business (read more on their blog), and that she thought it could benefit the brand to get another review out there in a different size. After looking at the Grass Fields website and reading their astonishing story, I was eager to accept!

Sadly, the jumpsuit is not flattering on me. At all. And the size chart does not look boob-friendly either. But the fabric is so amazing and the story so inspiring that I still want to share the positive aspects of the garment even while presenting a negative review. [Read more…]
