The Portia, given by Annella Lingerie, is a beautiful, feminine set. It is plain enough to be wearable under every day clothing, however the delicate detailing makes it a gorgeously girly set which wants to be seen.

The band is quite firm and true to size, and it seems to give a fairly good support with a nice rounded shape, however it seems very small in the cup. Though my “usual” size is 30JJ, I find I often have to go up a cupsize in Curvy Kate, so this is in a 30K. I would need to size up at least another cupsize, but unfortunately Curvy Kate stops at a K. If I could get this bra in a larger cup I am sure it would be a very comfortable bra. The only solution I can think of for this would be to cut the non-stretch ribbon across the top, in a bid to open up the top of the cup.

All in all it is a very beautiful bra, one which I’m sure I would love if only it fitted me properly!

Butterfly specialise in plus size fashion and accessories, particularly oversized and chunky jewellery. From the giveaway I won a Dreamcatcher jewellery set.

The earrings are eye-catching and bold, but still beautifully detailed with dark purple and pale lilac jewels.

They are a touch dressy for everyday wear, and I think would be much more striking on someone with dark hair, but I’m sure I’ll find a way to wear them – they’re too lovely not to! The necklace has a casual bohemian look to it, which I think should be fairly easy to wear with lots of outfits – though I don’t think I could personally pull off wearing them together.
