How a corset can make the most of any shape

Create an illusion in the boudoir with this stunning ‘made to order’ corset.  Something we have searched for especially for one of our blog followers  who contacted Boudoir to say ‘where are the corsets for girls who need H cups?’

The answer  is Curious Curves. They have both ready made and made to measure. The Desire range is super flattering with the halterneck.  Made in luxury satin there is a strong range of colours from subtle blues to vibrant reds.

Our blog follower  reveals that she wants to look and feel good.  She wants to make the most of her neat waist and good legs, but distract from her bigger stomach.    Curious Curves  has a great website with an excellent measuring guide.   Made to measure corsets take between 14 and 21 days.

And bigger cup sizes can also be found at Corset Heaven

We really love their honesty and common sense ‘the larger we are, the more we squish’.

Their overbust corset in satin has spiral steel boning and will look good in and out of the boudoir.

And this corset is just to die for.   It really is a show stopper.  It might not suit our reader with the H cup as it only goes up to a D, but we can all appreciate it’s wow factor.  It is steel boned bodice with a plunging neckline and will work for girls with curves who want the hourglass figure that’s all the rage this summer.

It will attract lots of attention as the nipped in waste distracts from bigger hips and the design is bold and fun. And for those of us without a definite waist a corset will sculpt and shape one.  So with a corset it’s win win whatever your shape.

Have the confidence to wear  a corset.  It conceals where needed and flatters where wanted.  Perfect for creating the illusion you want.

  • Flabby tum distracts from good pins? Not in this corset – the corset is so sexy it will flatten tums and make legs look fabulous.
  • Flat chest so reluctant to try a plunging neckline? Steel boned corsets push up and out.
  • Big hips that you hide under baggy pants? Create the illusion of voluptuous perfection in a corset that nips in the waist to flatter curvy girls.

From this patriotic corset would make it onto Boudoir’s list of Ten Things Every Girl should own.

Made to order they say delivery is 3 to 4 weeks, but bigger breasted girls take note this fab corset only goes up to a D cup.

Have you noticed that corsets are everywhere this summer? And you don’t have to hide them – they look good with pencil skirts.

How to be a cover-up sensation on the beach?

Whatever your shape

Whatever your size

Whatever you don’t feel confident about

Make this summer different.

So if you are a big girl, a curvy girl, a skinny girl, a too ashamed to take your clothes off kind of girl – keep reading because we can help you create the illusion of fabulous and give you the confidence to walk the beach in style.

Have you heard of swim bras and swim briefs? We had certainly missed this one. So check out Elomi Swimwear  available online and at Debenhams.


This bra in black gives up the support and comfort you need without the fear of falling out of an itsy bitsy bikini.

Team it up with the black high waisted briefs to pull in and flatten where you feel you need it. This range is called Yarra and what makes it truly fabulous on the beach is this flared tankini that you wear over the top of the bra and briefs.

It’s in tan, chocolate and black animal print and worn with the swim briefs and swim bra it is perfect for sitting on the beach, walking to the bar and for taking a stylish dip.

The whole outfit exudes confidence according to designers Elomi and after taking a look ourselves we believe them.

But what if you are not curvy and your confidence dips because your hips stick out or your chest is flatter than the M25?

We love this Tahloola slashed, fringe cover-up from Agent Provocateur. Wear it over a bikini or swimsuit and cause waves on any beach this summer. It’s the ultimate confidence booster. We make no apologies for featuring this item yet again.


But don’t be put off by the Agent Provocateur price. It’s gorgeous but this ASOS Crochet Fringed Beach Tee at only £30 is a good alternative for those looking to create an illusion this summer.

It’s crocheted, has a ribbed bodice and tassel fringing from the waist downwards. The tassels feel great as you sashay across the sand.

All three beach outfits will allow seductive swirling this summer whatever it is we are trying to hide.
