I don't want big boobs!!

You might remember, earlier this month, in my April Hottie and the Nottie feature, I had a good old moan about the fact that I have problems fitting into larger sized clothes, because my boobs just aren't big enough to fill them out.

So, imagine my interest, when this leaflet drops out of a well-known beauty magazine (sorry for the bad quality, the lighting was absolutely terrible!)

Noting that I have never heard of Pepperberry, the caption beneath the title reads:
"Clothes designed with your boobs in mind."
I mean, wow, what are the chances that not long after I moan about it, I get a leaflet advertising just what I'm looking for! Brilliant. And, it's amazing that I looked at the leaflet in the first place, because I typically just throw the crap away (or deliberately entice it to fall out when I'm picking the magazine off the shelf *cough*).

Mildly intrigued, I flip the leaflet over to find out more (already having noticed how pumped up the models boobs are. I mean, seriously??)

Leaflet flipped over, the first thing I see is Sizes 8 - 18. Huh, well, that's pretty useless, but the worst bit is:

"3 Curvy Sizes to fit your Boobs:
Really Curvy
Super Curvy."

Do not get me wrong, I do honestly think that this is really great for slimmer women who have big boobs, because as the response to my previous post emphasised, there are a lot of women who will really appreciate this brand, and that is absolutely fantastic.  Nevertheless, what about people like me who are the other end of the scale, ie bigger but with smaller boobs? I can't be the only person that has this problem can I?

On a slightly different note. Why the heck do they feel the need to really push up her boobs on the front? She looks bloody amazing, and the dress is absolutely gorgeous (I'd kill to be able to wear a dress like that), but why not just hire a model who doesn't need to be "pumped up"?

Sometimes, the fashion industry just baffles me :-/


  1. I saw this store in town and thought it was for larger older women with larger boobs. So confused as the whole window display was like old women clothes and frumpy. Might have to look in now though coz im an 8 with an E cup.

    It looks as stupid as you are imagining it to look. :/ Like I might topple over at any moment. Bleeurgh. Or that ive stuffed my mams bra haha.

    The shops need to sort out their sizing. They go with just the total average and barely anyone is actually that size.

    Do you have problems finding bras? I only ever see anything over a 34 in like a DD and upwards.

  2. just noticed the mean girls quote under your header! I always think of that quote when I go to judge someone. Its such a good bit of the film!


  3. That would be amaze for me!! I'm a size 8 all over with 34f boobs ugh!! So I do have to pick up tops in size 10-12 sometimes :o( and they often look terrible and unfitted! Can't wait to see what this brand has to offer xxxx

  4. ur not the only one !

  5. Thanks for your comments ladies!

    @Georgia, that sounds like you're describing Evans LMAO! I know I have to buy bigger clothes, but they want me dressing like my Grandmother!! And yeah, I love Mean Girls, even if it is a little bit corny at times ;)

    @Hannah, I hope you manage to find something that fits :D Don't understand why women's clothes aren't more "flexible", we're all different, even when we're the same size, after all!

    @Sarah, that's SO nice to know :D

  6. Pepperberry is the clothes range by Bravissimo. Bravissimo are life savers for me XD At a K cup (to my eternal misery - I'm entitled to free cosmetic surgery on the NHS as it counts as a significant physical and mental health concern but i'm allergic to so many things my sensitivity to anesthetic is too dangerous at the moment ) there is no-where else at all that I can buy lingerie by just walking into the shop and getting a chance to feel like a normal person for a change! Their clothes are really useful for work, there are very few tops I |*don't* have cleavage in. I do wonder why there isn't a counterpart the other end of the scale though? The company was founded by a lady who was tired of struggling to find clothes that would do up without swamping her elsewhere, maybe we need more boundary pushers like her from all shapes and sizes ^__^
