Learn The Fit: My Afternoon At Panache



Last week I was lucky enough to be invited to an event at Panache HQ in Sheffield called "Learn the fit"
It was their first blogger event  to celebrate the launch of their new Spring/Summer underwear and swimsuit collections.
Their latest range is absolutely gorgeous and it was such a treat to see the beautiful underwear and swimsuits being modelled.



I absolutely fell in love with the new Sculptresse range which goes up to a J cup and is quite 1950's in flavour.Both the Pure Lace in the hot pink and the Bellise in the floral were stunning and gave such good support.
I loved this Pure Lace set

In terms of shape the Willow was my favourite. It has fabulous side support panels which give a really neat silhouette. This is due to hit stores anytime soon and I will definitely be investing in one.

After the mini fashion show and Learn the fit workshop we had a fun hour seeing just how good we would be at measuring someone for a bra. The models who acted as our guinea pigs were very good sports as we fumbled around with tape measures and brought them size after size of bra to try on.I was totally useless but Elena from the Frivolous Mrs D blog was amazing. She got it right every time!

Talking of bloggers it was a real treat to catch up with some other fabulous plus size and beauty bloggers including Becky from Mrs Bebe, Sophia from Tattooed Tealady, Rosie from A Rose Like This Charlotte from Ginger girl says Toni from  The only way is Toni and Claire from i like tweet one of the things that makes this blogging lark such a joy is the really wonderful women it introduces you to. A finer set of chicks you would struggle to find.

We finished the day with what was by far my favourite part-meeting the design team. 
I loved this wall of bright cottons-it looked like a modern art installation

Gorgeous colour palette swatches

I so want this to hang in my office

Another mood board

As you would imagine the designers were all very cool looking ladies and the time and research that goes into each collection is mind blowing. they talked us through the mood boards they had worked on for this latest collection and highlighted where influences from the catwalk had filtered through into the fabrics, patterns and colours of each range. 


Really looking forward to getting my hands on the Bellise when it hits the stores

As I said earlier this was Panaches first blogger event and it was gorgeous. My boobies are very excited at the latest Sculptresse designs and I think yours will be too!
At the end of a boob packed day we let off steam, playing with the props store. Dame Edna eat your heart out!
Suits you sir!

  1. I would really love a proper bra fitting. I am one of the unlucky plus size ladies who does not have big boobs. And by that I mean comparatively to the rest of me because I am really pear shaped. The sculptress range does look lovely :)
