You've probably already heard of them, because I have not actually opened a glossy magazine without one of their catalogues falling out over the last few weeks, but the team behind the lingerie retailer Bravissimo have come out with a new line of clothing designers for the bigger girl, Pepperberry.
As I, as well as any other girl out there with a slightly more generous chest will know, finding clothes that fit and are not too tight on top, but then don't swamp us everywhere else is a complete nightmare, so I was really excited when I found their catalogue and placed an order.
Their sizes work so that you order your usual high street size, and then select if you want the bust to be curvy, really curvy or super curvy.
They have a small range of dresses and fitted tops and shirts, and I hope they expand their range - there were quite a few dresses I saw that I would have totally loved if they'd been available in a different colour most dresses are one colour only. I decided to go for the first blue jewel dress. Everything is quite reasonably priced, it was £55.
They all come nicely wrapped up in the post in boxes, and considering they offer free exchanges and returns you don't have to rip anything to get into it which would make it harder to wrap back up and send off again if you wanted to.
I initially ordered it as an evening dress, but has no idea what it would be like. Since placing the order I actually fell in love with another dress for the occasion while I was waiting for it, but decided to open it up anyway and make the decision as it if I'd return it or try to justify keeping it!
It turns out it did not really suit me and I was not entirely happy with it, but it was a very nice dress, and though the fabric was a bit clingy, it was not bad for the price. I will be ordering from Pepperberry again, because the bust area fit perfectly, and it was a comfortable pleasure to try on. I think they need to work on their collection a bit more, but they really have a good thing going launching this line.
Has anyone else ordered anything from Pepperberry yet?
