Hello Beauties 

A few weeks back now I had the privilege of heading down to Boux Avenue in Kingston to have a sneak peek and try on some of their gorgeous new summer range, including their new festival bra - which I loved! I hadn't shopped at Boux Avenue before, but had seen so many beautiful pieces, so I couldn't resist getting my shop on haha! I had one of the best shopping experiences ever, and thats no exaggeration! The staff were super helpful and friendly, not forgetting Boux Avenues changing rooms where you could change the lighting to suit you, which I absolute loved! I firstly decided to go for a fitting with the lovely Nadia, who actually told me I'd been wearing the wrong size bra, and in fact instead of being what I thought I was a 34B/C, I was actually a 32B. I hadn't been measured in yonks so this was a massive wakeup call for me to get the right size fitting undies as wearing the wrong size can be uncomfy and potentially dangerous! Nadia then picked me out the right sizes and I was ready to commence mission try on. In the Boux Avenue changing rooms, there is also a concierge button which you can push after putting the bra on and your assistant will come to your changing room and check the bra fits you just right... amazing! Nadia also helped me decide which styles suited me best, which is also such a helping hand as its like having a personal BFF on call to help you out!

After trying on pretty much everything from Boux's new range, Nadia suggested that I go for one plunge bra and one balconette to add a bit of variety to my bra wardrobe. I fell in love with the 'Chloe' it gave me that instant cleavage that we're all after in a bra. The colour and lace detailing are also super gorgeous and perfect for summer and I can't even begin to tell you how comfy it is too! Nadia also let me in on a little secret, Boux Avenue also offer gel inserts which you can place into the bra to give you even more lift, so of course I had to try! I went for a cup size up and tried the inserts and honestly I felt like I'd just had an instant boob job haha! The next set I went for was the 'Henrietta' which is such a super pretty chic style. If you know me I absolutely love anything with a bit of sparkle so this was just perfect. Instead of a plunge style, this also enhanced my cleavage, something none of my previous balconette bras had done, so I was over the moon.  I don't know about you guys, but for me having gorgeous underwear unleashes a little inner confidence, so this set was just perfect. 

Boux Avenue of course don't just offer underwear they have a fabulous swimwear range. I'd always wanted a high waisted bikini, but didn't know if I'd got the figure to pull one off, so I'd never bought one. However in Boux, I tried one on for the first time and fell totally head over heels for the 'South Pacific' bikini, and do you know what? I can't believe I hadn't bought one sooner! After trying I can honestly say high waisted bikinis will flatter almost any figure, however if you're not into that style Boux also offer the standard bikini brief which also has the gorgeous floral print. 

I then headed to the pay point, where the staff wrapped my pieces and placed little scented petals into my pink gift box to keep my items smelling gorgeous adding that VIP experience to my shop. If you haven't shopped at Boux Avenue before or are worried about getting measured Boux Avenue will make you feel completely at ease and find something to suit you, making you feel fabulous!
