Nine X Lingerie is a brand that I first discovered by reading reviews on other plus size fashion blogs. Their website is really attractive, with plenty of pink and black and the product range is quite vast. In babydolls alone, there are pages of different styles and colours in sizes 12 to 30! The baby doll I was offered to review is the Finella Black and Grey Lace Pattern Baby doll. It has a very seductive mesh panel down the front, which I was a little nervous about showing my wobbly bits, but I said I was up for trying it out. As soon as it arrived I knew I had made the right decision.
I put out a post on Twitter to see which of the following brands my readers wanted to see me review. The choices were Pink Clove, Simply Be or Boohoo, or indeed any other clothing brand that carried size 16 / 18 clothing. The ultimate winner was Boohoo and I was secretly a little chuffed about that because its a brand I’ve always wanted to try, but have been nervous as I didn’t know how generous the sizing was.
I loaded up the website, on both my PC and my tablet. There seems to be a dedicated website for tablet users which is really easy to use and the website itself was very self explanatory and I spent hours looking through their range of clothing. I decided to peruse both the “main” range and also the Boohoo Plus Size range which starts at a UK 16 and carries most products up to a 24.
After adding hundreds of pounds of products to my basket, I whittled them down to just two and believe me it wasn’t easy. There were so many bright coloured, summer items that were screaming at me to order them but I was relatively good and my order came to a reasonable £36, not including shipping.
I was visiting Cardiff for the day after dropping Mr FH at an exam, so I had every intention of visiting the Yours Clothing store in the St David’s Centre, in Cardiff. I thought it would be best to check with head office to make sure that I was allowed to take photographs of the store, so I contacted Jacqs to let her know I was going. She was extremely helpful and explained that she would let the store know so that there weren’t any problems. Everyone I’ve spoken to at Yours Clothing have been absolute gems.
Cutagen is an ethically driven company that uses a combination of science and medical professionals to develop their products. They are a British company and all of their product testing is done in the UK. So far so good.
My Cutagen samples arrived a couple of days ago, and were in the form of many different sachets of products, ranging from moisturisers to hand wash. I decided to trial out the products after a workout to give myself some much needed pampering.
