Review by Freya Bennett
I feel like 2018 will be forever remembered as the year of options for my bust. It’s no secret that I have big boobs and have always struggled to find things that fit both my big boobs and small back. Since starting @freyasgotboobs on Instagram, I have been gifted some amazing products I didn’t even know existed. So far my focus has been on what goes directly on your boobs: bras and bikinis exclusively! But I am so excited to be part of experiencing the wonderful BUST BOUTIQUE collection. Bust Boutique has just opened it’s virtual doors and there are so many options for busty babes.
The founder of Bust Boutique Alisha has a very similar story to mine: a life of squishing big boobs in to too-small clothes in an attempt to wear the same fashion as our not so busty friends. After studying fashion and working for many years in the field, Alisha decided it was time to start her very own business catering for her exact body type; big boobs, small body.
There has been a huge gap in the market for clothes that fit busty yet small babes like myself. Plus size fashion has surged forward in leaps and bounds over the last decade, and rightly so as plus size fashion used to only offer a very limited range and usually only catered for the older woman. While it’s been so wonderful seeing this fashion boom for bigger ladies, I’ve struggled to find the right fit for my body. If I use my boob measurement, I can be up to a size 20 in clothes yet my other measurements put me at size 8-10, making it near impossible to find clothes that fit properly. Hence my excitement when Bust Boutique came in to my radar!
I was sent the gorgeous Davina Travel Dress in black and was absolutely pumped to be getting such a classic, comfy piece. I had been eyeing off this dress as my favourite so was more than happy to be asked to review it. Being a Melbourne girl, my wardrobe is pretty much black and I live for comfort. The Davina is one of the comfiest items of clothing I own, including my pajamas and yet it looks so effortlessly stylish! It needs no ironing and is so diverse it can be worn day to night and winter to summer.
Going into Summer, I’m currently wearing it with nothing but sandles and some simple earrings. It doesn’t need much to look chic as the gorgeous shape gives it style without you having to try. I cinched the waste with the stretchy ribbon that was actually wrapping my delivery from Bust Boutique and it gave it a completely different look!
In Winter I plan to wear this with leggings, white sneakers and a denim jacket. So easy to wear all year round which is exactly what I love being someone who wants to minimise her impact on the environment. The Davina is the ultimate slow fashion item as it is versatile, comfy, and hardy.
