A Review Of The BiuBiu ‘Venice’ Top

5 Aug

Bust friendly basic looking tops can be hard to come by. They can come up short or stretch too much over the bust to accommodate it, or come up too big when the bust is taken into consideration.

Once again, enter BiuBiu, and their Venice tops.


I was recently given the chance to try an Venice top in indigo blue and one in violet, both in size 44BB/BBB.


The Venice was a perfect length on me. It was flattering, covered my tummy and suited my 5’7 long torsoed frame.


The scoop neck didn’t show any cleavage, making it perfectly versatile for formal and casual occasions.


The tops were both a great colour for me and my wardrobe. I wore the violet one out to dinner and managed to score a lump of parmesan from the waiter… Well when in Italy!


In truth, I preferred the fit of the Portofino top as I liked the way it nipped in at my waist, but the Venice was still a great shape on me.


The tops were nice and thick, meaning that they didn’t show my bra through them, and they will be great to wear all year round.


For more reviews of the Venice tops check out A Sophisticated Pair and Voluptuously Thin.

In these photos I paired the tops with an old skirt from New Look, my trusty Maidenform shapewear, a plunge bra from Ewa Michalak and my old Marks and Spencers high heels.

Special thanks goes to the beautiful patient CurvyWordy for taking these photos for me.

    Thanks again for linking to our review! I love these tops on you, especially how you styled them with the skirts. I got the lavender one and the lace print one (the amount of lace and lace print stuff in my wardrobe keeps expanding…), but your other review has me anxious to try the Portofino ones. The silhouette on them just looks so flattering. The review is wonderful, and you look gorgeous! xx

    I love your style and fashion. You make everything look so glamorous. I’m going to be ordering several of these tops thanks to your informative review showing how well they can work on plus size figures as well as straight size. I already have several EM bras so I have the lingerie to fit underneath, as I heard somewhere the cut of BiuBiu is based on the models wearing these bras! xxx
