As any SheSaid chick will tell you – anytime of the year is perfect for shopping, but November has got to be one of our favourite months to hit the shops. Why? It?s almost summer! Time to get out of those oversized jumpers and jackets, buy a cute new cossie and hit the beach! Check out these options!
Heaven and Aqua Blu Swimwear have released their new ranges, perfect for the Australian summer. The ranges are funky yet fresh, everything from sporty designs to the more tropical and girly hibiscus designs. One of our favourites is this cute spotty number from Aqua Blu (right). Called ?Dotti?, it comes in chocolate, safari or lucern colour and you can choose a variety of designs including halter one piece, bandeaux and the very funky cut out monokini. If you like this design, you?ll love their ?rouche? design, the oh-so-cool pucci swirl or the ‘Go Go Graphic’ design (above right). Check them out in leading department stores.
Love that bra
For an expectant mum, summer is one of the least comfortable times. It?s hot, your feet swell and you can?t even wear those ultimate feel good clothes that cheer us up in times of crisis. Well, at least you can get a decent pregnancy bra these days. Lovable have researched exactly what sort of bra women want when they?re expecting. Divisional Manager of Lovable, Dianne Taylor, says ?The Mums wanted to know why they couldn?t have a bra in fashion colour?s that still looked like a normal bra but with the functionality they required – we agreed with them.? So Lovable have produced the seamless soft cup maternity bra. Made from a cotton elastane mix, the maternity bra has molded drop cups, one hand easy action, maternity clips and a separate sling inside the cup for breastfeeding.
RRP $39.95, are made up to a size E cup and come in black, white and pink. Available in Bra?s n Things, Myer, David Jones, Australian Breast Feeding Association and selected boutiques across Australia and New Zealand.
