Boux Avenue

At the end of January I blogged about
Theo Paphitis' new lingerie brand Boux Avenue.

The wait now is finally over and Boux Avenue is officially open.
Their online store went live on the 1st April
and their 8 UK stores have been opening since then with the last opening
on the 8th April

Today is the first real chance I have had to look at what they had to offer,
and they definitely do not disappoint.
Having already known that Boux Avenue's size ranges were to include up to a
40G cup, I was still surprised to find 3 pages of DD+ bras.
I often find myself lusting over the smaller bras in shops, only to find that
if they do have it in a DD+ cup, it doesn't live up to the overall look of the smaller bra.
But not in this case. What they have to offer is far from mundane,
and for most cases, those prettier
smaller bras I am drawn to, also come in the larger sizes, with
every effort to keep the same fabric, design and appeal.

Boux Avenue lingerie is split in to two categories this season
Vintage Garden Party and Burlesque Boudoir.

There are pages worth of beautiful lingerie, but i have chosen my favourites
from each theme. All the bras I have chosen
to feature are those which have sizes in DD+.

These are just a few of my personal favourites, and there are plenty of other
sizes available with some ranges in the following sizes, bras up to a 40G, knickers up to a size 20, Suspenders, babydolls and slips up to a size 18.

And if nothing above takes your fancy then there are whole ranges
for more everyday wear in black and white, nightwear and loungewear in a range
of cottons and homewear pieces to fill your home with
a little bit of Boux Avenue.
