    That's right, I'd like to give you some freebies!

    I've all sorts of things that I'm dying to give you.  This includes:

    • some of my discontinued breast enhancer styles
    • nipple covers
    • packs of fabulous fashion tape
    • boobylicious tape in discs and strips
    • stick on bras
    • ...and ... if I haven't eaten them all, some sweeties too.

    Just add any two pairs of breast enhancer to your order and I will add the freebies to your parcel.

  2. I am so happy with how well my boobylicious tape has been helping you.

    I've introduced a bigger 11cm disc which can make it easier with the bigger breast forms.

    She's also coming with more detailed instructions which I will try and find a way to add to the smaller label on the 8cm discs.

    I've also added her as a purchase option for when you buy the larger breast forms, saving on postage enabling me to sell them cheaper for you.  Yay!

  3. As we all know, there is the odd dress that just won't allow for a bra.  Lack of support and lack of confidence can result.  Don't worry though...

    Say hello to my lovely fabric covered self-adhesive mango bra. She's here to give you a great shape, pulling your breasts in and giving them support, so you can rock that dress or top with confidence.

    Strap free and backless, she can be worn up to 10 times and I've priced her with a lovely understated price tag of only £6.00.  

    Available in cup sizes B, C and D that work well with this kind of bra, she's a sweet mango winner!  Buy one now and hit the tiles with confidence.

  4. With summer fast approaching and more and more of you emailing me about it, I thought it might be really useful to write a little about bikinis.  I am going to detail what works best with and without enhancers and the style of bikini that are best to look out for.

    The Bikini Problem

    The main issue with bikinis is that their cut and fabric is designed to be light, and therefore isn't supportive. There are styles that tie around the body, styles with thin straps to hold the bikini to your skin rather than to support your breasts, and styles with very small triangular cups.  The problem with these is the complete lack of support.  If you think about bras, the best results you will get are those that are structured.  They hold you in the right place and way, and allow your breasts to be held up, to be pushed up, to be held together and where you want them.  With bikinis, we go the other way by buying ones with little structure.  We can't fight gravity, so the result is that your breasts will sit lower, move around more, will not have any rounded or cleavage look at the top, will appear flatter, will appear smaller.  If any of those affect your confidence it's not good, but add the most important one that your breasts are not supported and therefore put strain on your back and neck, and it's time to rethink.

    The Better Option

    The good news is the same kinds of bikinis work well with breast enhancers and without. 

    The secret really isn't a secret at all as we all know it...it is....

    Structure

    If you get structure in your bikini top you will be supporting your breasts to keep your back healthy, keep them healthy and keep them where you want them to be and how you want them to look.  If you choose to wear breast enhancers, you will also then give them something to push against to push you up or in, and ensure that they are well held in.

    What To Look For

    When choosing your next bikini, go for as bra a structure as you can.  This doesn't have to be boring as there are fabulous ones out there. They will look great and keep you and a breast enhancer well supported Go for styles like the ones here and you will find you get much better results.

  5. As some of you may know I was in a documentary back in 2012.  It followed the PIP scandal, where it had been found that non-medical silicone had been used for internal breast surgery.

    I had no idea at the time of filming that it would be on a primetime BBC3 show, or that people would still remember me from it! 

    I've managed to at last get a copy of it and I've popped it onto You Tube.  Hopefully they won't mind now that BBC is no longer a channel apart from online. My shop had a rebrand after the documentary (it used to be called Silicone Sally, and you can see my section at around 48 minutes 50 into the documentary.  I would never actively argue against breast surgery and believe in choice for all women, but regardless you may find it an interesting thing to watch. 

     

    If you need any help or advice about anything raised in the show you can email me at any time.

  6. Its all for charidee 600 815

    I really wanted to bring some charity products to my store and start to help some of the groups that need more funding.  I've started adding some little products to my new "Charity Add-On" category, that you can add to any order.  All profits will go to the 3 charities at the end of every month.

    • Breast Cancer Now who are leading the UKs research into Breast Cancer.
    • Breast Cancer Care to support those diagnosed,  and
    • The Young Women's Trust which helps women 16-30 to help bring about positive personal and social change.  

    I've got some lovely things coming that I've been able to price really well so that you get a lovely product at a fantastic price and the charity receives a great amount for each sold.

    A win win!

  9. Hi everyone.

    I hope you are all doing really well and are enjoying our wonderful unpredictable summer weather.

    Just a little stock update for you.  Style 2 is now in fully in her new incarnation and looking fabulous.  She is more shaped than before, but still super soft and not too wide so she can be worn by band sizes 32" upwards.
