or lack there of




skirt: H&M
shoes: very
hat: very
bra (unseen, pervs!): wonderbra
glasses: pinched off brother
dorky hipster pose: via myspace

I was recently asked by Wonderbra to take part in a little challenge about styling white t-shirts. As Gem put it, not to be confused with wet t-shirt contest (oh how I laughed!). Believe it or not I'm actually a 36A, I KNOW RIGHT. I've been measured in so many different places and by different people and that's what they come up with. I'm really... err.. wide sideways I guess, Plus I'm quite broad in the shoulders too so I guess that's why I have a wider back! They sent me a t-shirt bra to try out, which I actually really like. I normally go for a bit of padding to even out my hourglass figure, but this one was very nice and felt like they were firmly in place! I've never owned a nude bra before, always thought they were a bit, ahem grannish! Also I was pleasantly surprised with the fact you cant see it through a white t-shirt, a major gripe I have with white bras under white tee's!

When it comes to supporting the boobage (or my lack thereof!) I don't tend to go expensive and always wear black underwear. I really should "invest" more nice underwear, I think getting this bra has probably changed my mind about more pricey undergarments. They do fit better and I feel comfortable and supported! Might have to invest in the biggest push up one they have #fml #theshame #whyamisayingthisontheintenret #sorrymum!

And to what I actually wore... Before you say anything,  Why am I wearing a wooly hat and bare legs? Because I'm stupid that's right! I don't do weather appropriate dressing at all! It was a little chilly today actually so I suppose it can be forgiven. I know the fake geek glasses are a total hipster dream, but I felt they went with the preppy-geeky-skater-ish thing I was going for. I'm in love with these Converse, I adore my battered white high tops, but I chose these black ones from Very as I knew they would look awesome in the summer with pretty little dresses!

You can buy the T-shirt Bra from Wonderbra here.

  6. "wheres wally" got stylish ;)

    i actually really love this outfit and i LOVE the glasses, i always wish i was slightly blind so i could wear glasses like that all the time. I dont own fake glasses after my mam called me a prick, nice eh!?

    im going to try that bra, im always on the look out for a good supportive (im a 36E and let me tell you i would KILL to be an A cup, considering going under the knife!) bra, i always seem to end up with 4 boobs because my bra's never seem to fit properly, not a good look!

  7. haha this is cute. i'm in total agreement with the not dressing weather appropriately thing - i'm very guilty of this myself!

  9. Oh god, I bought the super massive bra in a crazy moment without actually trying it on and it is literally enormous. I've never worn it as I look like I have mountains on my chest. I do really like Wonderbra apart from that though!x

  10. Nude bras are grannyish to look at but totally essential for under light coloured stuff- best discovery ever.

  13. That has surprised me, as from photos you look bigger than an A! But whatever, you rock it anyhow, hahah.
    I love how you've styled the shirt with that adorable skirt and the Converse. Just so cute for summer!

    And I know what you mean about investing in nice underwear... I collection is slowly growing since I started working at La Senza.

  14. Oh, I really need to try out that bra. I usually stick to black and white and it's REALLY annoying how whites shirts especially always show the bra.

    The price for the wonderbra is not too outrageous, most deffo giving it a try soonies. <3

  27. I don't think I've felt the same to a blogger then i have right now (god hope that don't sound pervy) but i have the same boobage problem. or lack off in my case! I never want to spend much on bras and i always always go for black (normally buy primark ones hehe i splash the cash right) i may have to try a wonder bra! a lot of my friends have them but they have bigger boobs then me so i never thought it was a good idea. And i always go for bras with a LOT of padding in them! Thanks for this post though it's changed my mind about buying more underwear and maybe invest in some expensive ones xoxo

  28. This outfit is so adorable! And I'm with you about having problems with my lovely lady lumps. They are simply too big! I would trade with you in a second, darling. I'd much rather be able to go without wearing a bra (I'm secretly a dirty hippie) while wearing cute low cut shirts. They look too trampy on someone like me with boobs my size! (Um, hello, I'm like 5"1 with 36Ds... no thank you!) Nobody is truly happy.

  37. Ah! Shoes!! =) I love converse with skirts! I think it looks so cute, and omg bare legs! =D LOL at the pushup bra thing.. I understand what you mean though..
    So casual but nice, I know its just a white shirt, but it fits you very well, as LC says, the place where the sleeves end is really important!

  45. I always thought nude bras were a bit grannyish too! I might have to get one for the summer because I wear a lot of white tshirts and vests! Love this look, especially the skirt and the converse! I really want some white ones for the summer.

  54. The outfit is cute, I love the converse. I agree with you on the investing in quality bras. I always tend to buy cheapish bras and underwear but a good quality one makes such a difference. The clothes will look so much better and I always feel better when I know I am wearing a nice bra.

  55. Whether the hat and bare leg combo is silly or not is irrelevant, it looks GOOD! Too good!

    Love this outfit Lily! x

  64. Oh how I love polka-dots! And I just bought black Converse All-Stars but mine have studs on them. You make them look so cute with the skirt - I have to try it!

    ReplyDelete
  65. Wonderbra ultimate are great and looks very natural! It's comfortable against your skin too! The only complaint that I have is that it runs small in the back.
