These Strapless Bras Changed My Life

Forget how random this post might seem, but I'm about to share some life changing information with anyone who's a D-cup and above. Mother Nature decided of her own accord to bless us abundantly in the boobs department and we shouldn't be be made to suffer for that. 

Yours truly is a staggering G cup (yes you heard that right) so you can imagine the struggle I have had to go through finding regular bras that fit well not to talk of strapless bras! For the most part of my life, I simply avoided wearing strapless, halter, low back styles because there simply was no bra without straps that could hoist "them" up properly. 

Until last year when I discovered two AMAZING bras that changed my story forever. Since then I have bought almost every strapless and low back top/dress I can lay my hands on to make up for the years I had been denied! :) 

Wonderbra Ultimate Strapless Bra

Ladies, believe me when I tell you that this strapless bra is the realest MVP! It stays up and firm even with my G-cup. I have put it to the test in the most rigorous dancing conditions and I have never had to do that annoying "pull" once! It's awesome for bigger busts but even regular size busts sing this bra's praises to high heavens. Simply put, this is the best strapless bra out there, get yo life! 

See it in action below :) 

Top and Pants from Maju

Dress from ThingsNigeriansLove

Available from Debenhams UK here for only 28 pounds. Superb!

Wacoal Long Line Low Back Strapless Bra

Low back dresses is one  territory I stayed completely away from until my wedding. I had two beautiful low back dresses that I had to rock at all costs! I combed the internet for several months looking for a low back bra in my size with no luck until God led me to the Bridal Lingerie Store where I found this bra. It is kind of expensive at 70 pounds a pop but I had no other choices so I took a leap of faith and bought it. 

It was perfect! Don't believe me? Look at these pictures :) 

Yes ladies, low back dresses are not only for our small-boobed friends! :) 

Apparently, the company is discontinuing this bra, I don't know whatever for but the Bridal Lingeria Shop has a few more left before it's gone forever!  Buy it here while it's still available. 

Really sorry that neither of the bras can be gotten in Nigeria and only in the UK but trust me the stress/cost of the purchase process is definitely worth it!   

Peace and Love,

Bella Naija Feature| 6 beauty uses of Turmeric No One Told You About

This article was originally published here on Bella Naija as one of the articles I contributed to their Beauty section. 

You may or may not have heard of the plant called Turmeric that grows wildly in South & South East Asia. It has been used for thousands of years in Asia as a cooking spice and even for medicinal purposes. If you are a fan of Indian food like I am, you will have eaten many a turmeric-laced curries.
We are not focusing on curry today though, I’m sharing some of the powerful beauty powers of Turmeric and how you can incorporate it into your beauty regime.

Review | Bvlgari Goldea Perfume

.A few posts ago (here)  I mentioned my aversion for variety when it comes to perfumes. This is slowly changing though as I have started to discover one or two new scents that I really like. So imagine my delight when I was recently gifted the new Bvlgari Goldea perfume! Like I promised on Instagram (@shelovesthefinerthings) here are my thoughts...

What In The World is Texlaxing?

This is the PG-13 version of the response I get from people every time I tell them that my hair is texlaxed! I didn't realize that save for those of us in the Healthy Hair Journey (HHJ) crazed cult, not many people have even heard about the term texlaxing so I decided to do a post on it.

This year was the first time I participated fully in the Lagos Fashion and Design Week which has been running for 5 years now. I attended all four shows and I had an absolutely amazing time.

Tifanny Amber came to conquer on Day 1…All of her pieces were fabulous but these are my top 3 picks. 

Day 2
