Intoxicated By You....


Now it's time for something a little sexy. Well at least *I* think it's sexy, you may think otherwise in which case I DO NOT CARE because sexy is in the eye of the beholder and my eyes say it is.

Intoxicate Balcony Bra* - Scantilly
Intoxicate High Waist Brief*- Scantilly 
This frankly perfect set is the Intoxicate by Scantilly, who you will know as Curvy Kate's sexy sister brand. Earlier this year I shared their beautiful best seller Peek-a-boo to great response so I was over the moon when they sent me this beauty. With sheer mesh cups and delicate eyelash cups, I was already head over heels before I'd got it on my body.

I love the tie details on both the bra and the briefs - It's sexy without being full bondage which is important to me because in all honesty, chains and whips do not excite me but chips and dips do. It also allows you to get exactly the right fit with not gaping or digging in. The design is just so well thought through, making it both beautiful and functional - Something I will always, always love about Scantilly.

My wonky bosom means that bras are always a bit too big in one cup (Which you my notice in the pictures) but it's infinitely better than double boob innit? With fit, I only really wear Curvy Kate, Scantilly and Freya nowadays (I swear there is nothing more comfortable) so it's really tricky for me to give you a comparison but I can say I'm a 34FF in pretty much everything but swimwear and that's what I'm wearing here with an XL in the brief (PERFECT fit on me)

The detailing on the new Scantilly pieces is just stunning - If you wear between a DD and HH I urge you to have a nosy. You won't be disappointed.

Falling Back In Love With Fashion


We all lose our mojo sometimes. We get stuck in fashion ruts, we fall out of love with our beautiful bodies, we dont see ourselves the way that other people do. Then just as soon as you've lost it, you can find it again. AND I HAVE FOUND IT. 

www.terribletumbles.co.uk
Tie Front Blouse* - Lovedrobe
Mum Jeans - H&M
Shoes - Topshop (Similar
I really really enjoyed taking the pictures for this post because I actually felt great. Genuinely great (Hence the title of the post!) and a lot of that came from shaking up my wardrobe just a little bit. Up until last week I had managed to let peasant blouses pass me by, now all of a sudden I have three... (How do these things happen?!?) but with luxe embroidery, shirring and tassels this Lovedrobe number is definitely my favourite. It sits so beautifully and is really grown up, even with just a pair of ripped jeans. 

www.terribletumbles.co.uk

The top is an 18 and fits me like a glove. I'm sure a 16 would have been great too but with this style, the idea is that it's loose isn't it? So I'm going to say go for true to size. It's actually on offer at the moment for £28 and I cannot get across to you just how good value this is for such a well made blouse - I can see this in my wardrobe for years to come. 


www.terribletumbles.co.uk

These jeans are SO far from anything else I have - Highwaisted, ripped (I think the term is actually "trashed" when they're this ripped?!?) AND cropped. Bonkers but I just love them. They're and H&M size 44 which I believe is an 18. I haven't fit into an H&M 18 since I was a real world size 12 so this is, once again, evidence that you should always try things where you can. In fact, I'm reluctant to shop as much with H&M because it REALLY grates that they don't stock a wider size range in-store, this said (jeeeeez I'm fickle) there's so much more online - I managed to find heaps of styles I never imagined would be available in 18/20/22. So yes -  My morals can be turned by a green jumpsuit...

I'm sincerely hoping that this post is the first of many where you see me smiling and really really meaning it!

Floral Fancy with Yours Clothing


Ok, I said I was going to do a five minutes post but the words just aren't coming out of my fingers from inside of my head SO LOVELY PRETTY MAXI DRESS IT IS! 

www.terribletumbles.co.uk
Bardot Maxi Dress* - Yours Clothing 
Please play the Little House On The Prairie theme tune in your head whilst you view these pictures, I'm SO gutted I couldn't find a hill of tall grasses to run down but, with the number of bones I've broken since I've started this blog, I think it's very much for the best. This Yours Clothing dress is one of those lovely floaty light floral dresses that always looks good on other people but not me EXCEPT THIS ONE DOES. 

www.terribletumbles.co.uk

I can only put the success down to the fact that the shape is loose yet the elasticated ruching, which starts at the top and extends to the waist, offers just a enough structure for my liking - plus it keeps the dress from falling off which is nice. 

SO. Maxi Dresses. They generally aren't are they? Especially not on me. I probably wouldn't class this one as maxi either, rather a long midi BUT I recently learnt that maxi dresses are tricky, especially light coloured ones on freshly cut grass - You get a weird green ombre effect and then when you wash them they just end up looking sad and grey and a bit like something Miss Havisham might wear. So long midi is just A-okay with me. Also, I quite like not wearing shoes. Mainly because I have broken toes but partly because I'm a raging hippie at heart.

www.terribletumbles.co.uk

I'm wearing a 16 here which is absolutely perfect so my advice would be to buy true to size, unless you're between sizes, in which case size down because life's generally easier when your dress doesn't fall down in my opinion. 

www.terribletumbles.co.uk
If you're in the market for an "all occasion" Summer dress, Yours have some fabulous  maxi dresses right now - I'm a big fan of this long sleeved number on gorgeous Jess and Poppy looks INCREDIBLE in this bardot.

Summer Holiday Swimwear - Joanie Clothing


The tan has faded, the hangover has ended and this is the last in my Summer Holiday Swimwear Series *sniff* BUT AT LEAST I'M GOING OUT ON A CORKER!

www.terribletumbles.co.uk
Ariel Bikini - Joanie Clothing
When Joanie Clothing told me that they would be launching a swimwear collection, I was VERY excited - I knew that their fun yet classic retro style would lend itself perfectly to Hollywood poolside glamour. Boy was I right. For crying out loud, JUST LOOK AT THE PRINT ON THIS BIKINI - It's utterly stunning. If bikinis aren't your style, the tropical coral leaf pattern is also available in a longline swimsuit which is equally as glam.

www.terribletumbles.co.uk

This set is an 18 - I could have sized down easily on the high waisted briefs but the top definitely needed to be bigger in order to facilitate the ol' wangers - This is another top which isn't really suitable for jiggling about in, I mean, there's no wire so it should be no surprise that the support is limited. However, this also means it's INCREDIBLY comfortable. If you're after looking mega hot whilst reclining (when am I not) the high waisted brief cut and keyhole tie back top detail is perfect. Plus, at only £25 for high quality repro swimwear, you genuinely cannot go wrong. 

www.terribletumbles.co.uk

I've got a lot going on inside my big old head this week, which usually means that it's time for another Five Minutes... post. After that, I'm going to share some of the beautiful dresses I wore on my holidays, you know to get some mental equilibrium back into the world.

Summer Holiday Swimwear - Simply Be


This is the second in my Summer Holiday Swimwear Series and today I have my top picks from Simply Be, who are all about poolside glamour this year - with bold prints and cutout detailing, I was spoilt for choice. 


www.terribletumbles.co.uk
Longer Length Magisculpt Swimsuit - Simply Be 
I spotted this swimsuit at a recent Simply Be event and was immediately VERY into the colour -  IT'S JUST SO AB FAB. This is the kind of swimsuit that you would wear to a spa. When I say spa I mean bar by a swimming pool. Which is exactly what I did... I also have matching lipstick. Which I wore with it. Because I am just. that. glam.

www.terribletumbles.co.uk

The longer length makes it utterly perfect for my height. I have to confess that I was put off by it being shape wear - I assumed it would be a bit too thick for the poolside and I'd end up sweating my tits right off. Luckily this wasn't the case at all - The magisculpt lining does mean that the suit is hard work to pull up (and down if you're in a rush for a wee . Which I always am) but it is otherwise spot on.


www.terribletumbles.co.uk
String Tie Bikini Set - Simply Be 

The cutout detail of this string bikini is the kind of thing you see so rarely in plus sizes and I LOVE IT. Let me be honest, you won't be running any marathons in this top - The support is pretty non-existent despite the foam cups and silicone tape (The sticky stuff that holds it in place) but it's ideal for lounging about and is mega comfortable.

www.terribletumbles.co.uk

Obvious words of advice - Watch your tan lines with this one. It's actually really good for pulling the straps down on so I managed to avoid any issues but I really don't know how you'd cover up these lines... Maybe go topless? I don't know, it's up to you. Be your own sexy self. 

Isn't it amazing how quickly you slip out of the holiday mode...? At least I can keep it going on the blog with one more bikini post after this!
