Pepperberry - Lady of the Manor

This weekend I visited Norbury Manor with some of my blogging friends and thought the pretty garden of the house would make a great location to take some snaps of my new favourite dress. I will do a full post about my weekend in a couple of days but for now I have some outfit photos to share with you.

This dress was an impulse buy from Pepperberry which is sold in Bravissimo shops. The brand makes  clothes designed with your boobs in mind. If you have ever had the frustration of having to buy a bigger size than you need  just to avoid gaping buttons across your bust, then Pepperberry is great for you. I would normally have to wear a vest top under this style dress so avoid looking trashy but this brand have three size options depending on how much extra room you need for your bust. You can hoose from Curvy, Really Curvy or Super Curvy. I opted for Really Curvy in a size 14 (normally wear a 16 to accommodate my bust and waist). It wasn't cheap, coming in at just under £60 but I think it's a pretty special dress and worth the money I paid for it.

  10. That dress looks absolutely gorgeous on you, such a lovely design. I bet it was worth spending the £50 though to have something that you feel completely comfortable in, and to be honest, a dress from Topshop or somewhere similar would be £35 or more! Actually, thinking of Topshop, I once bought one of their dresses with the inbuilt corset-bra thingies, and er, I don't think even half my boob fitted in the cup! I don't know why they didn't make the bra bit bigger with the bigger sizes!

    1. Thank you :) I like to call them boob pockets. I can never fit it the little topshop cups and I'm not really sure who can? 12 year old girls?

  11. This is such a fabulous dress, I can see why it is one of your favorites because you look amazing in it. This is such a great location too, I hope to visit places like this one day, we don't have many places like this to explore in the Washington D.C area.
