I am super in love with this top! It appeared in my Christmas wishlist, but I ended up buying it for myself in the after Christmas sales! It’s sadly no longer on the site, but check your local City Chic stores!
It is a bit of an akward top to get sunburnt in though! I was running around with Tonka getting him to the vets (he had a UTI, 3 vet visits, including one at 3am after he was peeing blood!) and totally forgot to put sunscreen on! Now I have some interesting sunburn lines! I wore it with pants, which you can see here.
After reading the reviews of this top on the CC site, I sized down to a small and was happy I did so. The medium would have fitted, but probably been slightly too big. The top is also rather neon in real life!
This year I’m trying to embrace my arms. My arms are something I always cover as they are flabby, but it’s just too hot here in summer to do that. I want to be cool and free, so I’m learning to love my upper arms.
I actually really like my name, though there have been times in the past when I have wanted to change it. I was born Natalie Jane and it does hold a bit of a special meaning. Natalie is after my deceased brother Nathan, and Jane was my Mums best friend. I like the way it sounds together.
When I was younger (I’m talking like 8 years old) I loved the names Belinda, Melinda, and a name my sister often went by Tiffany. Then in my teenage years, I fell in love with the name of one of my sisters friends, Serica. Around this time, I was given the nickname Natatree and that was one that really stuck.
Natatree Darling was my online name for so many years and to this day, I still get called Natatree by old friends. I guess if I HAD TO change my name, that would probably be what I would choose.
Late last year I was contacted by Plus Size Lingerie Boutique and asked if i’d like to choose something to review. I love lingerie, in face I have more lingerie then I actually wear, so I wanted to say yes, but the thought of also getting my kit off to show you what it was like was a little daunting. After thinking about it, I decided, why not? I’ve been in my bathers and crop tops before!
I decided on getting a Lace Demi Bra by Oh La La Curves. I love the harness trend that has been in fashion, and this was the first time I’d seen a plus size bra with that feature!
SIZING - I tend to be a 20b when it comes to bras, but often have to wear 20cs as 20bs can be hard to come by. The site has these bra sizes ranging from 1xl to 4xl. After looking at the sizing chart, I decided to get a 2xl and the fit is great! The cup is a little large, but the harness area has adjustment straps which I found helped the fit.
It’s not the most supportive bra I own, but it does it’s job well. I’ve worn this a few times now and find it really comfortable. The bras I usually wear are padded but this certainly feels less restrictive, even with the harness area. I also really adore the eyelash lace detailing around the edges.
Shipping was super fast from the US to Australia and it arrived in a sturdy box packed with large plastic bubble filler. Very nondescript. In fact, until I opened the box I was a little unsure what it actually ways!
Apart from the sizing being slightly confusing, I was really happy with the service and the product. In fact, i’m now wanting to add this to my collection!
