My favourite segment for CSVP is back this week featuring the cutest local boutique Shushu Boose. With a background in fashion and design Alicia had a dream to own her own boutique and curate the pieces she stocked to fit and flatter women of all shapes and sizes, but specifically larger busted ladies (I know from experience how hard it can be to find things that fit and flatter and are CUTE too when you have a larger bust!). Her pieces fit and suit all women regardless how well endowed they are, but all have room for a larger bust. How cool is that! She’s also given me a code for you lovely ladies – CSVP15 = 15% OFF xx
As a quick recap, Dianne & I are both a size 12 however Dianne is a pear shape and 158cm with D Cup while I am a hourglass shape and 165cm with E Cup.
First up – the Rachael Skirt Dress (we’re in the size 12). Hardworking pieces are always a great investment and having one piece that can be worn as a dress or skirt is pretty darn hardworking! Personally I can’t go past the gorgeous retro print and colours! Dianne has worn hers as a dress and added a belt to accentuate her waist, and dressed it up with some on trend retro heels and sunglasses. I’ve worn my has a skirt, balancing out the full skirt with an off the shoulder blouse (also Shushu Boose but not online yet, just email or DM the girls if you’d like one) and accentuating my waist by tying the top.
Next is the cutest little leopard number, the Carly Smock Dress (we’re in the size S/M). We’ve both worn the top two buttons open, Dianne to create shape and for me it is to break up the print across the bust to minimise bulk. Dianne has worn her with the self tie belt to accent her waist while I’ve worn my loose, the shorter length allows me to show off my skinny area (my legs) and balances our the volume of the style.
Last but not least is the lovely Jameela Midi Dress (we’re in the size S/M). Theere are the most gorgeous print and embroiderie details on this Sunflower Gingham dress that just makes it so much more special. It also is available in a black version. It has a drawstring waist that you can make as defined or loose as you like, I have made mine quite firm to accentuate my waist and let the dress speak for itself just adding wedges and a boater hat. Dianne felt she needed to accentuate her waist more boldly to offset the amount of fabric on her petite frame so she added a black belt and accessorised with a matching bag and converse.
