Truthful opinions please from all you nice young(er) mums. I'm mid 60s. What do you think of this. I've never bought from Pepperberry before although I've bought Bravissimo bras. It would be in size 18 Super Curvy cos I'm a 38H. Apple shaped... Pepperberry in their recommendations seems to pull apple shape into 'straight', and this is in the straight category. 5'6" tall. Would wear it with navy or black leggings and flat pumps. Or with jeggings and soft black leather calf length flat boots.
Has anyone else tried this on, I'm concerned it wouldn't skim the jelly belly though I could wear my holdy-in-smoothing-thingy.
Yep, fitted in Bravissimo last week at 38H. It was a Bravissimo bra which I've read comes up small, and could be 36GG if it was a Fantasie. Haven't been checked by Pepperberry as to whether I would be Really Curvy or Super Curvy. Was going to order on-line. It's fat belly I'm also thinking about..... Style advice often says we shouldn't go too big and roomy, and should just 'skim'.
Hmm, I'm also big and would be similarly concerned that would cling to my tummy. If you're only an 18 you must have a pretty wide choice of nice tunics. Eg, White Company or Cos , a label I think suits all ages.
i am big busted and big of belly and those types of tops with a knot in them really suit me. Give me huge looking boobs mind - which they are! i cant wear tunics as they dont suit me as i am too short. Go for it
Ok, so I should probably go for 18 really curvy. In the meantime I've emailed Pepperberry to check if there is any detail or shaping at the back. It says 2 days for a response. I did see this (or similar) in the shop a couple of weeks ago and am so sorry I didn't just take the time to try it on.
Yes, some nice pieces in White Stuff. I've never used it before. Have always stuck to M & S Autograph, Kaliko, phase eight......probably because of a nearby outlet centre with 70% discount which has served me well.
