The hunt for that perfect t shirt bra

So tell me this, does the hype of Valentines day make you feel like you are falling head over heels in love with whom ever tickles your fancy, or do you wish it to sizzle off like that burnt piece of sausage left on the bbq for far too long?

Whether you are in column a or column b, I think all females can agree that treating yourself to something nice (no matter what day it is really) is part of that self love that we should all be making the time to do. Sometimes, I need a little bit of an obvious statement like shall we say, “treat yourself to what you deserve this valentines day” to spin me into action.

I, like many millennials, shop mostly online. Albeit, sometimes, wanting to shop for that “perfect bra” has its limitations when you shop online. However, Marks & Spencer (click here) kinda has you covered in that department.

Marks & Spencer tailor to create the perfect bra for women from all different shapes and sizes. For me, the perfect bra isn’t necessarily a t shirt bra or a raunchy lace ity bity piece of material. But what it does have to have is support, comfort and most of all, fits perfectly on myself and underneath my clothes.

I jumped online to the Marks & Spencer website, and I was a little bit put off. Bra’s to me are a bit of a big ticket item so to speak, normally setting you back a cool $100 for a “good bra”, not the $30-40 on the website, so I still kept my skepticism hat on until I could see it to believe it.

I kept on scrolling until I could find the perfect outfit with that perfect under garment for that perfect dinner. I found what I had been looking for, checked out (courtesy with a nice little gift voucher from M&S for the purpose of this little post) and sat back. I was thinking that my shipment would take at least a week or so to get with me. I placed it on Jan 23rd – it was with me by Jan 28th.

Turns out that Marks & Spencer do a pretty good t shirt bra! …and by good, I mean spot on for comfort and quality. Along with their other pieces of goodies that I received, in the photos above!

So, my lovely humans, treat yourself to something special every now and then. Because we all deserve the gift of comfort and self love!

Fun in the sun with BONDS

Aussie house-hold brand BONDS (click here) have outdone themselves with this year’s SWIM range. With gorgeous mix and match bold prints, it not only has something for everyone in the family, but delivers above and beyond with quality garments that will last year after year.

The BONDS SWIM range includes children sizes from 000 to 7 and then caters for sizes XS to XL for both men and women, with styles designed to fit everybody.

Adapting from its much loved female hipster range, this year is all about variety for us ladies, from bikinis, one-piece, tubes, triangle and bandeau.  Each piece has been crafted, so we can easily mix and match with the rest of the range.

This season we see the return of one pieces on the runway, with an array of colour to black. For me, while you all know I love colouir, black is always a safe bet, allowing you to seasonally flow into Summer and out. While the other colourful bold prints create energy and highlight a playful side to the brand we so love and adore.

 “Prints are part of the Bonds signature. We do a lot of work to make sure our prints are dynamic and energetic but also appeal to a wide audience. There is definitely a boldness to our prints, in a sense they have their own character. Each print has been designed to tie in beautifully with our colour palette, which is both punchy and saturated, as well as pared back and neutral. We spend time working prints into the stories we want to tell. In this instance, with our bright modern florals and playful motifs, we wanted to echo the intensity of high summer in Australia.” – Senior Designer Anna Banno

Here in Australia, we are faced with rough surf and a strong UV, so what better way to combat this with swimwear that actually stays on when swimming, and protects your bod at the same time. With two way stretching lycra and UPF 50+ protection, BONDS delivers on providing us with the enjoyment that a day on that Aussie beach in summer we dream of.
